I'm back

So if anyone's out there I've decided to show my face again, so to speak. It's been a long time since I was active, so sorry to everyone who wanted the hack.

Basically, I'm starting over. I've restarted the project from a fresh fire red ROM and I'm in the process of putting all the sprites in their respective places. Why start over? Well when I originally started this it wasn't meant to be a full hack. I hadn't planned on remapping, creating a story, or anything along those lines. The original purpose was to create a base for future digimon hacks, unfortunately my ambitions went rampant and I found myself overwhelmed.

Now I'm back to the basics, and as much as I would like to make a full fledged game, I refuse to do so until this project is complete. Last time around I was changing stats, movesets, evolutions, etc. but now I'm just inserting sprites. Charmander is replaced by Agumon, Bulbasuar by Palmon, and Squitle by Gabumon. I'm not even touching the multiple digivolutions for now. I'm putting in sprites where I think they'll coincide with their pokemon counterparts so that I don't have to worry about stats or movesets. That said, they'll only match up to a point and when I reach that point I'll start working on the nitty gritty.

But, yeah, I'm back and still working on this thing.
