Horray for glitches!

This weird error surfaced in rijonAdventures and I need to get it fixed. But yeah, that’s a known glitch for you all to know. 😛

To multi-select Pokémon in a box, you press the SELECT button to change the cursor into quick select mode. You then press and hold the A button over the Pokémon you want to select. Normally, the Pokémon highlight in red, but here they disappear!

This feature exists in FireRed, LeafGreen, Emerald, Diamond, Pearl and Platinum. You will probably also have spotted it in Pokémon Box.

When things go wrong

Just went crazy trying to figure out why the Download buttons for each page didn’t show up. Fortunately, it’s working fine now. I’m going to start adding a download button to posts now, so if there’s a new beta or something, you can download it without navigating to each page.

Speaking of downloads, rijonAdventures was meant to be released around a month after Prism, so I may consider releasing the rijonAdventures beta a month after Prism’s upcoming beta release. Hmm.

Play your own hack, and see others do it

So, I’ve added quite a bit of stuff to rijonAdventures since the early 2009 beta. A year ago I said, “Rijon is finished, time to move onto South Rijon”, but oh was I wrong. So many little things to fix and add, text inconsistencies to iron out, high school, uni, uni, and so many annoying little things that I did that just look bad.

Yes, reviewing how your own hack looks and works is a good idea. But a good hack doesn’t just start from my own assessment of my game – it depends on what others say about it.

So I’ve been stalking the “Let’s Play” videos on YouTube. Found this guy:

(I hope he realised he needs to fix that save error. Methinks I need to make it more obvious. And another thing: I realise it’s a year old.)

I also stumbled across this video of Brown from the same person. Orangeylicious!

Prism News!



Confirmed, 100% true. etc. Yes folks, the new Prism finally has CONFIRMED dates that I will not change. You have my word.

I will choose beta testers. The sure way to NOT become a beta tester is to ask me.

On the day of the release, I will be on PC all day fixing glitches if people discover them and constantly posting updates. I’m tackling on brand new concepts for the Pokemon world, so it wouldn’t surprise me if there are glitches. These are things that have never been done before, so look forward to that too!

Elite Four’s Zeke

So some people saw this in my avatar at The PokéCommunity and wondered who I drew here. (It’s not illustrated by Signomi, but rather, it’s been coloured by her!)

And if you’ve played rijonAdventures, you will have seen “Zeke” within the game as the fourth Elite Four member!

Zeke is meant to be more of the “geek” character, and as such, if you know what’s printed on his shirt, you’re in-the-know and you’re awesome. I planned to make him a bit more of a geek by giving him a BlackBerry phone, but I realised I liked this idea better.

Anyone who’s battled him already will know he has no specific choice on Pokémon types. I really need to put him in more parts of the game, I guess. I was meaning to post this artwork eventually.

… and that’s all for today. 😛

Screenshots? What that?

I just realised something unfortunate: the lack of screenshots of anything here. But no worries! Curing the curious illness of missing screenshots, I’ll post some rijonAdventures ones to keep everyone a little updated on what’s been happening.

Lots of map updates. I’ll go through the first: I decided to throw out the original design of Origal Maze for something a bit bigger in scale. It’s still retaining that name (though I’m considering using route numbers) but it’s very, very different.

The second screenshot shows that I’ve changed the west of a certain route. But, I’ll leave that for later.

Oh, and finally, here’s a train station.

We’re back!

EDIT: The release here is an unstable in-dev release not intended for serious gameplay. For the last-known stable version of the game, please head over to the game page.

Boy did we look bad, huh? We needed a design refresh (because the layout was… eaten by an update) and so we’ve got one! It’s based off the layout I made for Delicious Rocket though I don’t think the layout looks as good without the awesome bokeh effect, but I really am overusing that.

So, what’s new?

  • Pokémon: rijonAdventures has a new version release with lots of stuff in it, but it also has lots of bugs. Why? Because it’s the direct copy I’ve been working on. You have yourself a grade A developers’ copy (which is dangerous!) And, I’ve been refining it to make it better all the way through, but you won’t see those refinements yet! More awesome stuff about that soon, but you can grab the unstable copy here.
  • Koolboyman is planning to start a private beta test for Pokémon Prism around June for the existing test group (but no promises!) Hopefully, I can get him to actually start posting here more often.
  • The rijonWorld forums are coming back with single sign on with WordPress soon, but I’m currently working things out. Yeah, the wiki idea didn’t quite work out.

Oh, and the layout’s currently under construction. How’s it look?
