HGSS - Kris as Female ProtagonistRom info:
Hack of: Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver (USA)
Current Version: 2.0
Last Updated: 18th July, 2012
This is a simple hack of HGSS, where Lyra is replaced by Kris, the female protagonist introduced in Pokémon Crystal. There are a few minor glitches, but these are mostly negligible. All that is changed in this patch is the graphics, as well as any mention of 'Lyra' with 'Kris'.

Someone – a kind anon on 4chan sent me his work on a rom hack like this one, entitled 'Pokemon SpiritCrystal', from which I extracted Kris' backsprites from.

A decent mod for those who want to play closer to the original Crystal, but not overly impressive.
Not bad. I actually prefer Kris over Lyra since Kris was the original female protagonist that appeared in both the game and TV Show (in Pokémon Chronicles, but "Kris" as "Marina" and "Ethan" as "Jimmy").
New patch is up! Changes detailed in changelog in original post.
Interesting note: while I was searching the rom for the location of the mini-sprite used to denote the location of the player on the Town Map, I found a file with the icons of the playable characters, Raikou, Entei, and Suicine (as expected). But, instead of Lyra, it had a blue-haired female, which I assume is Kris. I'm not sure if this has been found by anyone before, but it's confirmation that Game Freak did in fact have Kris in the game at one point (or at least used her as a debug for the map icons). Just thought this was pretty cool The file is located in a/1/4/2 for anyone that's interested (in Tinke, it's file 22 IIRC). This Kris mini-icon is the one used in the patch, and is pictured in the original post.
Let me know if you find any other bugs not noted in the original post!
..Is this proyect alive?
Better not be, it has potential.
