Well, Kudo, this entire project is going to rely on your hex-editing skills heavily. So far as I know, that's the only way to change the names (and possibly sprites) of the gym leaders. That said, I can probably change the names myself, as that's not terribly difficult; it's finding the offsets for the sprites that may cause a problem.

Other then that:

I've discovered another problem that may come up with D/P. While using it on a computer with a less modern graphics card, the ROM lagged horribly and it wasn't a very enjoyable experience. After some skimming online, it appears that this is a problem inherant in the DS ROMs, so there's nothing we can do about that.

For that reason, I suggest that we go back and either do FR/LG or perhaps G/S or even Crystal.

Since we've pretty much ruled out D/P/Pt due to technical concerns, what should we do instead? I assume that nobody wants R/S, but that leaves us between G/S/C and FR/LG. Personally, it doesn't matter terribly to me, although I suppose I like FR/LG better because we'd have more slots for pokemon.

Oh, and Ybbald? Doing repeatable gym leaders would require some serious knowledge of hex code that we don't have. So it's not going to happen unless someone has created a hacking program that adds it to the hex code automatically (which I think is unlikely, but I won't discount it - there are a lot of hacking tools out there).

I would vote Crystal because it's my favorite and we won't necessarily be coming up with a ton of pokemon. I'm betting the majority will be left as defaults.

Emerald has repeatable gym leaders written into the game code as is. Lets use that. Dibs on a dragon type gym.

I can also work on game balance for you.

I think I would be more fitting to have a dragon type gym, wouldn't you think? But then again I'm not doing anything to contribute to this project.

This is just my opinion, but I say the gym leaders should be: Evan, Nolan, Koppis, Yule, Kwiftee, tijitdamijit, Rad and ninjafetus. The rest of the regulars being either gym trainers or the strongest trainers in the field.

I wanna be the beauty. Okay, bad joke.

A dragon type gym couldn't use the most powerful options available unless we're trying to make this game mind numbingly hard.

Speaking of which, what do you guys think the difficulty/curve should be?

Beginning/Middle/Endgame?

Ark, you should be a pornstar!

Hmm, I think having the Mods/Kayin as Elite Four/Champ has already been decided.
Do we call spots or do we go in some order?

I'm thinking the leveling curve would be the following for each gym. (Based on the geography of Emerald)

Gym 1: 13-14
2: 20-21
3: 34
4: 42
5: 50
6: 69
7: 78
8: 90
E4: 90-100

Too steep?
