[Project][Hack Rom]: Fairy Pokètail

Hi ^^, I was thinking to do a "pokemon hack" rom based on fairy tail. This is the storyline:
At the begin of your adventure you are on a train or a boat and you're just arrived at Hargeon Harbour. Here you have to find the fake salamander and beat him, then, with Lucy, you have to go back to Magnolia, at your guild, Fairy Tail. The purpose of the game is beat all guilds, in order to participate at the Great Magic Games held at Crocus. The particularities are: The pokèmons will be Natsu and Lucy themselves, and you can recruit other characters during the story. Instead of Gyms, there will be guilds, (obviously you will not receive medals by defeating them). Once you have beaten all the guilds you will have access to Great Games of Magic. Anyway I wanna include other events in addition to fights against guilds, for example, the tower of heaven, ecc. ecc...

Unfortunately I can't do this alone, I suck with scripts, I need:
Scripter(?): To help me with maps of the city and that will insert the text in the game
Tilesetter(?): Maybe. Someone to help me creating tilesets.
Someone good with sprite to make front and back sprites.

Anybody want to help me? It 's my dream to play at a rom hack that I create (this would be the first). Let me know, thank you very much ^^

That sounds pretty exciting! I can try to help you with dialogue, events, and locations. My Skype info is in your PM inbox. I've read the first 20 or so chapters of Fairy Tail, but I'll go ahead and re-read it to catch back up before we start the writing process.

All we need then is a cartridge writer and we can play the game on our Game Boys!

It would be fantastic if we can change the attacks "gifs", for example I was thinking to do all the mages attacks, example: Natsu: Attacks Lv. 5 Karyuu No Tekken, Karyuu No Hoko, (iron fist and roar of the dragon) however if you have any idea propose ^ ^ (sorry for my english, I'm Italian) ^^.

hello, I wanted to offer what help I can give with this project. Unfortunately, I am not a good artist/scripter, but, I am a fairly competent writer. I also really love Fairy tail and games in general. I can also help in a few ways, such as proofreading, some other ideas and possibly interesting features/events that could happen in the game. This is my first post on this site, so sorry if it sounds strange.

Don't know if it will help you, but there's Pokémon rom patches that don't change the main game, but instead replace the sprites, called Moemon. There's a version of Emerald which is in the Hoenn region. Might be an easier start then making a rom?

I was looking into this sort project a while back with N64 roms as a way to extend and practice my programming skills, but instead became preoccupied with school and gaming...
They have some pretty good tools available for hacking and editing code for Nintendo games floating around on the internet, some of them are extensions and plugins for emulators themselves. Maybe you could utilize the peer to peer links for multiplayer games or leaderboards some emulators support...

Edit: Found some.

Hi, has long been working on a similar project. He planned to make a similar game where using the story of fairy tail like you were forming a harem but wanted to be able to believe my own charas and tiles before get serious with the project. Would want to lend my support with charas and tiles if you're interested but I warning that I am a beginner.
If it helps you associate a script of Emmux that could serve although I have not managed to open it by vx problems.
