I think it's time to expand our ROM hack list a little bit further.
Every hack will be accepted as long as it's good.
#1 Platform games:
#2 Shoot'em Ups:
#3 Puzzle games:
#4 Beat'em Ups:
#5 Fighting games:
#6 ROM Hacks:
#7 Racing games:
Not OP, but I went and tried it out and in it's current state it appears to be quite broken. Least from what I could figure out, tried it in Mupen and Project64, music is odd, sound fx are missing, and after a while the whole game will just jump into overdrive with everything sped up to an almost unplayable speed.
Here's a link if you wanna try it yourself
I know there's already 5 billion SMW hacks listed but this one I enjoyed a lot
>tfw no Harvest Moon 64 romhack to make time move slower
Anyone know how to Romhacks, if someone Hacks that shit in I will make high def renders of everything in the game and redo all the textures.
Someone hacked Monster Party to create a remix of it called "Monster Party: Let's Go Again". Haven't played it, but it looks nice.
This is the only site that has it hosted IIRC.
the graphics look pretty good and according to the readme they got some insight from Jomb & Co. who know the game pretty well.
Maybe some one here can help me out. I've been wanting to play Pokemon Snap again for nostalgias sake. Unfortunately, the ROM is faulty and it won't acknowledge a photo being taken. The red dot indicator doesn't show up, meaning the Pokemon signs aren't acknowledged, thus making the last level impossible to get to without cheats. Also, some Pokemon have certain actions that take place when they're first snapped, which doesn't happen.
I heard there was a fix, but google offers mixed answers. Does anyone here have personal experience with it?
An immensely enjoyable one of impeccable recommendation I just went through was "Super Mario Bros. 3mix"
I've been playing hacks since dos was the way to emulate NES, mind.
Pokemon Crystal: Emu Edition
No bullshit, no difficulty increase, just makes Crystal actually complete. Also adds in a limited Safari Zone.
Also I'm surprised no one's mentioned Sonic 3 Complete yet.
Needs more Pokemon.
>Red Battle Factory
>Red Gen 2 Graphics hack.
>Red Proud Eyes Edition
>Team Rocket Edition
Last I checked, the originals if not Gens 1-2 have Split Disassembly versions just like the Sonic games.
Also if the remakes of RBY count there's Throwback which is basically the definitive version, minus Celebi (in a way) and trade evolutions still being required
yes, there is one video plug in that fixes that issue. Im a huge pokemon snap fan and had that problem for years. The plug in is pretty rough to run and most other games experience extreme slowdown. "Shunyuan's SoftGraphic 1.5.0"
Is there any particular reason why extensive ROM hacks of Nintendo games (as in games for Nintendo consoles) happen to be rare? I mean the Genesis, or Sonic at least, has dozens of overhaul hacks made, but the NES only has like... two? Is it due to possibly unfriendly hardware, the lack of interest, or
Nintendo games were good enough to not warrant modification?
Sonic Classic Heroes: http://info.sonicretro.org/Sonic_Classic_Heroes
It takes the Sonic Heroes concept, and makes it better in all regards on Sonic 1+2. Much better than it sounds. Also you can play as Team Chaotix and as less than three people, which means you can play the game normally with the new mechanic and with both games together. Which incidentally also makes this as close to a definitive version of Sonic 1 and 2 as we're going to get until someone makes a thing like Sonic 3 Complete for them.
The S Factor (I did however, end up falling through a wall and restarting the game once or twice because of it): http://info.sonicretro.org/The_S_Factor:_Sonia_and_Silver
This is an odd fish because of the character roster and it isn't quite the best of the bunch, but it's still really fun.
Sonic Erazor: http://info.sonicretro.org/Sonic_ERaZor
I think "nuts and explosions" is a good way to talk about this hack.
Sonic 2 Retro Remix: http://info.sonicretro.org/Sonic_2_Retro_Remix
Sonic is now a collectathon. You really need to pause and look around sometimes. Also there are even items in the hub world, and some moves from the Sonic Advance games are in.
You're talking out your ass. There are tons of NES hacks, the real reason you don't hear about the huge projects is because they're drowned out by MAREEO KAIZO shit.
Mega Man has a number of huge overhaul hacks, there are several good Mario ones, there's more than one completely new NES-style Zelda, etc etc.
Oh how I wish it was never cancelled.
Just imagine how good it could have been.
>"Super Mario Bros. 3mix"
I just played through that last week, pretty good, and I'd rate it alot higher but there is MASSIVE slowdown throughout the entire hack, stage design was really sweet though and it's still worth checking out
>Just imagine how good it could have been.
it would have been horrible either way, romhackers are notoriously shitty level designers unless it's something really basic like 2d mario or megaman
>Actually believing that hack would ever be made.
Yeah, there's tons of NES hacks, but there are also very few hacks that are extensive. Minus Infinity is probably the only one.
The NES is a fucking oddity. It's well remembered and well studied, but almost everything made for it is on the same level as... those Famicom games that are by companies that only made a handful of games, like VAP or some shit.
This is a weird one I've been working on.
...and another for the hell of it.
Castlevania hacks are lacking here.
Christmas Version is a hack of Gold. With flash carts and stuff you can often emulate older games on newer systems. Pretty sure you can play GBC roms on a 3DS if you have a special SD card.
Are there any hacking tools for this motherfucker right here? Needs some coding fixes and a smoother level curve.
There doesn't seem to be any over at Romhacking.net, however I did find that the GBA port which was Japan-only has English text hidden within it. Maybe the GBA port fixes up issues that were present in the GBC version
Here's a thread on the romhacking forum's talking about it:
If it's in a retro thread, on-topic, and tangentially retro, it's fine. It's like if someone asks you to rank all your favorite Mario games and the third one is Galaxy or something,
probablynobody will care.
LC is also not a 100% demake of the official port of GSC. With added angst.
Not to go too far into detail, but I think we can all agree the new content was awful compared to the actual demake part.
Happy to see Final Fantasy VI: Brave New World there, makes the game actually a bit interesting, lot of work seemed to go into it to. I remember the guy who did the "retranslation" wrote a recommended mod list for Morrowind, I think. Seemed like a cool guy.
Yes, Pokemon Red and Crystal both have disassemblies. Pretty well documented, too.
I'm trying to make a Gen 2 ROMhack, but I've been in the planning stages for well over a year. Once you learn Z80 assembly, you have the potential to change every little facet of these games, which is actually kind of daunting.
Forgot about this one:
I must admit, these bad ROM hack reviews are pretty amusing to read.
Recently got recommended a Gold hack, Pokémon Bronze.
I've gotten to the second Gym thus far and, while the dialogue can get slightly childish (not toilet humor but just corniness) and the new sprites aren't top notch, it's a nice new region thus far. I was wondering if anyone had played it to the end to know if it stays the same quality throughout.
Not finished, but when downloading said Bronze version I noticed someone making a Platinum Demake from GSC.
Apparently an alpha might be coming out soon, planned to go up to Floraroma Town.
Didn't the guy who did Star Road make a romhack of Paper Mario where you take 2x or 1.5x normal damage? That would be worth including in the pastebin, I think.
By the way, are there any decent Kirby romhacks out there? For a series that size you'd figure there'd be some good ones, but I never hear about any.
I'm working on a hack of my own right now, hopefully someday it'll go in the list too.
Pic related, it's a hack of the original Mario Kart featuring new tracks and a Sailor Moon theme. Still in the early stages obviously but I'm optimistic about how it'll turn out.
It actually looks really nice so far
Do you have a playable build?
Nah nothing worth talking about yet, only done 4 circuits of the 20 available plus one battle course. Pretty much everything still needs work but I'm working hard at it so hopefully it should be finished soon enough.
Have a pic of Beryl.
Pretty much a placeholder, everything's kinda half-baked right now.
Does anyone have any experience hacking snes games using just a hex editor? I remember a while ago i used an emualtor to create a cheat and then modified the game to always have the cheat enabled (game was FF6,always 99 Potions in the first slot) but that was quite a while ago and i remember having the convert the byte order or something like that.
thanks, yea thats the phrase I was looking for, although ill admit when it comes to hacking games like earthbound(my fav) pk hack is by far the best choice, but i do like to play around with HxD and see what kind of chaos or ingenious hacks/mods I can pound out in a few hours.
Blame crappy tools, not hackers. Older versions of AddMusic (a tool which lets you add custom music into SMW ROM) were only compatible with ZSNES. That's why so many older SMW hacks work only on that emulator.
The most hours I've sunk into any ROM hack is probably Super Mario 74. It's not very good honestly, but I keep coming back to it for some reason. It has too many segments that require "precision jumping", which the SM64 engine and camera aren't really optimized for, and ends up feeling a lot harder than it needs to be. That said I haven't played around much with any other ROM hacks, unless you count Somari, which I bought a NES repro cart of. Good stuff.
Aha, it was Super Nazi Penis Cartel Freedom Fighters 1337. How could I ever forget?
has M.C. Mario got mencioned in the previous thread?
Is these kind of hacks allowed here?
This is a spritehack who gives the game other feel...
The original MCs are terrible, everything is better with Mario.
I don't have a lot of experience with ROMhacking, but the SM64 editor seems very sophisticated and easy to use. I was thinking of recreating the Johto region from Pokemon GSC in the SM64 editor and make a Pokemon themed platformer. Like, every dungeon, cave and forest could be easy levels and the gyms would be difficult ones with bosses at the end. Considering the star system of SM64 there could also be a more or less linear story similar to Pokemon GSC. Would this be too difficult to do for a n00b? I admit I mostly wanna do this to experience a Pokemon adventure in N64 style 3D.
I recently found a neat Perfect Dark/Goldeneye hack that allowed them to be played with a mouse and keyboard and at 60 fps. Does anyone know of something similar existing for the Turok games, namely Turok 2? I simply can't deal with those awful controls anymore.
You're only proving my point though, if they weren't incompetent they would've broadened the compatibility for AddMusic to continue support for other emulators (namely SNES9x), instead they just decided to dickride ZSNES because they assumed everyone used that to play rom hacks.
HEY NERDS I has questions
1. Does anyone know which hacks work as flashcart roms on the hardware? Music is important but can take a backseat here.
2. Does anyone know a good co-op hack for SMW? Preferably one that complies with #1
3. Does anyone know how one learns to hack? I'm smart with coding, I can learn
The guy who made Doom64EX is working on the same thing for the Turok games, so it may eventually be possible.
>Does anyone know a good co-op hack for SMW? Preferably one that complies with #1
I think that's what you are searching for:
Pic-related: NBA Jam:Old School Edition. I menat to post it long ago, but I seem to be the only person on /vr/ that enjoys retrosports...
135 players from the 1992-93 roster, including several unlicensed stars that didn't make it into the official version of NBA Jam (Jordan, Barkley, O'Neal, Payton, etc.,)
Complete 1992 East and West All-Star teams (includes Magic Johnson!)
1992-93 team colors/logos, except for the All-Star teams (the Eastern and Western Conference logos didn't exist until 1994)
10 secret players (Mr. T, Chuck Norris, Mario, etc.)
10 more announcer catchphrases
A new music track which is played between quarters
Cosmetic changes (better menu screens, player portraits, etc.)
>135 players from the 1992-93 roster, including several unlicensed stars that didn't make it into the official version of NBA Jam (Jordan, Barkley, O'Neal, Payton, etc.,)
Barkley is in NBA Jam (not tournament edition though), and Payton is in tournament but not the original since they only had 2 players per team and Kemp and Schrempf were bigger stars than Payton when the game was released
Yeah, true. The Barkley mention was because later revisions of the SNES and Gensis game had Dan Marjele instead of Barkely. Acclaim lost the rights to Barkley's name and likeness to Accolade (who made Barkley Shut Up and Jam).
I checked on the OP, but I couldn't find the code that lets you start Symphony of the Night at level 99 with minimum stats and enough mp for mist form. Does anyone in the thread have it handy and be willing to post it? I wanted to replay it.
I have NO idea what your post has to do with OP, but here ya go:
All Special Items 1 50000e020000
All Special Items 2 500005020000

Thanks for the codes, but the code was for minimum stats, not maximum. I appreciate the fact you went out of your way to help though.
The reason I was asking for the code for minimum stats was because the codes I'm looking for were being touted as hacks in the various Symphony of the Night threads. That's why I came to this thread.
Here you go I made a better version a while ago.
Also to anyone in the thread, I'm looking for Pokemon romhacks that let me catch all of the Pokemon for Generation 1 and 3 in particular. Anyone can help a brother out?
Crystal Emu Edition and Pokemon Throwback for the Gen 1 remake have already been mentioned. There's also Ultra Violet for the Gen 1 remakes, but there's a horrible bug postgame and some non-canon changes.
As for Gen 3, Pokemon Emerald Complete National Dex Edition exists.
I won't have Internet next week, so:
Here's what I have so far, this update adds every hack recommended so far (except Ketsui and Fire Red hacks, that shit's not /vr/) plus a couple of little updates.
I hope some kind soul would keep this thread from dying, as I won't be able to do so.
so i'm translating metal max for nes....
how should i do the text? right now all text is 4 lines fitting into the red box. should i expand the box horizontally and or should i allow for 8 lines vertically? the only reason there are spaces between lines are for the " character but i'm obviously not going to be using those. finally, lowercase? y/n? anyone know a game with a decent font i could use? opinions pls /vr/
as far as progress goes: i have the entire script dumped, working on item/enemy names; found all necessary pointers, i think
>should i expand the box horizontally and or should i allow for 8 lines vertically?
Horizontal would look best I think
I think having it all be uppercase should be fine, least I would think so since it's a NES game.
>anyone know a game with a decent font i could use?
Dunno specifically but check out the font section at Romhacking
Um, yeah... there wasn't really much that was actually done before the "creator" gave up and started bullshitting us that he was still working on it, so it wasn't "cancelled" so much as called out as the vaporware that it was.
Can't remember the name but i recall a sonic hack where the rings were onion rings and picking them up made you gain weight. Rin enough and you loose the weight but eat to many rings and you are obese and can't run therefore you die
Basically it's an extra hard mode for sonic.
I'm looking for a good SMW or SM64 hack. I guess you could also list off other game if you really want, but I won't bother with RPG hacks.
By good, I mean refined, not seemingly slapped together and shit actually 'goes together' in the hack, visually and gameplay wise. I am willing to make some exceptions to that though.
Aside from them being refined, I have no other specifications. I can appreciate a hack that goes and does it's own thing, as long as it does it well.
The only Super Mario World hack I've played was Brutal Mario. I didn't love it necessarily because it was hard though, I loved it because the hacker went so out of his way to implement so much random shit and make them at least halfway work. I'm also a hacker, so I couldn't help but appreciate his efforts on it. Not very refined at times, but he tried. All the extra content made up for it.
The only SM64 hack I've bothered playing was Rainbow Road. Which, as far as I know, I 100%ed it. Without savestates at all. I love the crap out of that game.
So, totally open to suggestions. I'm in a platforming mood at the moment, so I'm looking for something mario specific, but if you list something you feel is worth listing, I might look into it eventually.
I've looked at some other SMW hacks myself, but out of the 8ish I tried, they were all garbage, so I stopped trying to look for myself.
Here. Also this download contains lots of prepatched SMW hacks, plus a few YI hacks which are also prepatched.
This collection is kinda outdated as I made it 2 years ago, but I haven't played anything that came out in the last 2 years, so I don't want to make another collection without additional knowledge.
Second part of the list.
Also, seeing how it's C3 on SMWCentral right now, I've decided to play some SMW hacks I've missed on. Currently playing through TSRP2 Reloaded, it will definitely be on the new version of the collection.
I'll probably reduce the number of the hacks though, quality is better than quantity.
Is out there any Mario Kart 64 hack who allows you to plat the Mario GP with 4 players?
I didn't except this thread to be still alive. Thanks guys.
For SMW hacks , I recommend checking out
>>1799137 and >>1799139. There are few choices I personally disagree with (for example SMW 2+3 is too high in my opinion), but it's still a very good list.
As for SM64 hacks, Super Mario: Star Road is the best one.
I personally love when they reject updated versions of hacks that were previously accepted.
To be honest, I thought they are widely hated.
Isn't it just Vanilla Version with few very minor changes?
RM4MI is the obvious one.
For 5, the only one I've ever seen is Rockman 5: Air Sliding. It's pretty good, it has the obvious gimmick of being able to slide in the air and levels are based around that.
I haven't found a finished good MM6 hack yet. I've heard of both Rockman 6: Innocent and Rockman 6: Skype, but to my knowledge both are still WIP so I haven't tried to look for them yet.
>This is a colorization hack of Pokemon Red, done entirely using ASM. It takes full advantage of Gameboy Color hardware, which is much more capable than the Super Gameboy. The overworld is fully and properly colorized, and with colorized attack sprites, even battles are more colorful!
>In addition to color, Pokemon and Trainer sprites have been imported from Pokemon Gold/Silver/Crystal, and so has the battle HUD. If you don’t want this, the “vanilla” patch does not touch these.
This is one of my favorite mods. It's amazing how colors and improved sprites can breathe new life into a game like Pogeymanz.
I do wish it used custom sprites, though. I feel like there's some lost potential there.
Neither of them are done to my knowledge, but Google showed me two dropbox links for them.
As to World 0, I just went down the pipe at World 2 and found it. I'm at World 7 thus far and it seems there's a pipe for every even-numbered world.
Just finished 3mix, and I'm honestly surprised at the amount of stuff they packed into it. Lots of extra music, lots of extra new enemies, worlds based off various games, and I was most surprised at
postgame Star Coins in the form of the comets from Galaxy.I think it's up there with RM4MI in the amount of shit it adds.
I also did some googling, dunno how I didn't notice those links. Thanks.
Does the level design get better? I played the first few levels and it felt very linear.
It reminded me of Yoshi's New Island.
Try this link:
Hey, OP: would you accept some N64 total conversion mods? I mean, besides the normal Zelda and Sm64 stuff.
A few anons had asked me about them awhile back. Pic-related, but I have more.
I both love and hate rom hacking.
Because to make any progress you need to be doing some serious multitasking. It hurts my brain.
A question to those who play rom hacks;
How important is compatibility to you?
Such as, if the hack doesn't play in a real system. Or if the hack can only be played on one emulator. Do you care? If so, how much?
So I've been somewhat following this GSC hack that seems like it adds a lot, most recently adding in abilities, and it apparently updated to Beta 0.3.0 today with said abilities and other updates. The download link doesn't seem to have a patch, though, just the readme.txt file. The page and readme are in Spanish, and I can't read Spanish to save my life, so does anyone who does know where to download this hack? It looks really good and I want to see if it plays as good as it looks. (the hack itself I think is a mix between English and Spanish)
I've played 0.2.5 and it already has a lot of new Pokémon and moves, so maybe that itself could be added to the list if there's no download for 0.3.0.
>So I've been somewhat following this GSC hack that seems like it adds a lot, most recently adding in abilities, and it apparently updated to Beta 0.3.0 today with said abilities and other updates.

There, I found it somehow.
That download only has the readme in it, not the patch file. I couldn't tell if it was an error that it wasn't in the download or if there was some other download link. If that's the only one I suppose I'll wait until it's corrected, I'm just rather itching to play it and see the abilities in the game.
Followup, because bitch, I found something awesome. Pic related.
I've played though brainlord quite a handful of times. I've 'never' seen this mob before.
I 'finally' found out how map loading is done and, with it, I found out how entity loading is also done.
As such, I've been trying to document every 'enemy ID' I can find and test, that's how I found this bad boy.
It flashes really quicky, as per a transparent effect. Also teleports whenever the player gets close to it.
Sadly, it seems to only last a few seconds on screen before the game freezes. In one of my crashes, I noticed the map getting corrupt, so it either relies on a specific map type(Or something like that), or it simply corrupts the map.
I have no idea how tcrf ended up finding a awesome debug menu and unused sounds, but missed this unused mob.
But yeah, felt like sharing.
I know it's been a long time, but I finally got around to applying that fix. You have no idea how happy I am to finally play the genre the way it was meant to be played.
I almost ran down to Blockbuster to try and have my photos printed out at the booth.
Graphics hack is pretty good.
I've only played a little bit of Brown, but I was disappointed that they kept the same starter pokemon. I was expecting Onix to be one of them or something, it would have made it interesting
>Sure, feel free to post them
Is there anything that someone might want specifically? I've been in this general off-and-on for over a year now, and no Anon has asked for the re-texures, mainly because you can't play them on a console (no, not even a flashcart, before anyone asks).
Most people (who would be interested
) have played the Wonder J2 translation, and Sin & Punishment, so I felt there isn't much need to post those unless they are asked for.
I will eventually.
At the moment I have alot of other things I'm also finding that I could add to tcrf, such as explanations to the Debug Menu, as I'm figuring it out. As well as a few unused rooms.
I want to wait until I feel I've found almost everything I feel I could before I begin adding it to tcrf, else I'd end up adding something new to the page every few hours instead of just doing it all at once.
I swear to God, Super Mario Bros. 3Mix is like wet dream of every Mario fan.
I posted this a while back but I'm not sure if anybody even realized there was a second world.
-Pokemon does this all the time. Unfortunately only a few are good.
-Chrono Trigger's fanmade sequel is still ongoing, the team just had to erase all signs of Crimson Echoes. Go to metronomeproject at blogspot, 4chins thinks it's spam.
-FFVI has one like this, but I forget the name.
Wow anon, thanks a lot for posting that hack. I just finished the first world, and I gotta say, it's hard as fuck, but the design is really good, and also
>dat bowser fight
To everyone else on this thread, play this fucking romhack.
Thanks. Scrounging up enough levels for a proper demo was tough, so the difficulty's pretty unbalanced right now. Paragoomba Panic in particular is World 7 material. Once I come up with some easier levels I'll reorder everything.
If you notice something I fucked up don't hesitate to point it out.
You actually did this hack? I can't thank you enough, anon. I'm having lots of fun. How much time did you put on this romhack?
I'll tell you if I stumble upon something glitchy (I've encountered nothing so far).
Not too long. I'll work on it for a few days until I hit a stumbling block and then I won't touch it for weeks. Unless the problems are interesting, in which case I might marathon them overnight. I'm a NEET so I can afford to do that sort of thing.
Yeah I tried that out earlier today and didn't get past the first level. I'll probably go back and take another shot at it, but I really wasn't enjoying the changes to powerups. Its kind of cool you stay fire Mario for two hits, but not reverting to small Mario was throwing me off, thinking I had another chance to mess up.
Overall it looks really well done, and obviously a ton of love went into making it.
I actually did want to keep Small Mario but I wanted lasting powerups more. It opens up a lot of doors when it comes to level design. Ideally I'd have Small Fiery Mario and Small Raccoon Mario but last time I tried that I just made a mess. The engine really fought me on that one.
I like designing levels that expect you to duck or smash bricks, anyway.
It's just a matter of getting used to it.
The first 10 minutes I was like "the fuck, I was big, why did I die?", but I ended up liking it. I think it changes the way you play the game quite a lot, and doesn't give blatant advantages/disadvantages to the player.
I'm playing Megaman X Hard Type
I only completed the intro level, and it was "kinda" good (it's more or less a difficulty hack, and it's not so pretty. At least it isn't cheap difficulty). I liked the fact that the game automatically gave you the boots after clearing the intro level.
I read that there are good tools for making megaman X hacks now, so there should me some more in the making. Also, not /vr/ related, but check out Megaman X: corruption.
This fucking game.
Castlevania Overflow Darkness is so damn hard but the level design is just really really good. Playing it was like being in an abusive relationship. Brought me to tears but when I beat it, it was so damn good.
>Play GBC roms on a 3DS
No such thing, unless you're talking about the few Virtual Console releases or using a regular DS cart like an R4 or something. 3DS homebrew is still in diapers, we barely got a working NES emulator with no sound, it'll be a while before we get other systems.
I won't be home next week, so:
Once again, I would ask you guys to keep bumping this thread because I won't be able to. I'd like to finish the list someday, y'know.
By the way, I've been having a problem with Pastebin recently. It always makes my pastes
unlisted even though I set them to public. Does anyone else have this issue? It's not really a big problem, but it still irks me.
Tried it out, I like it. The abilities really makes the game interesting; the one part so far (I'm at 3 badges) that really struck me is Sprout Tower when fighting a Gastly. Your only choice in starter is Eevee, and Eevee only learns Normal- and Ground-type moves up to where I was at, so I was just going to use Mud-Slap until Levitate made it null and void and I had to go catch a second Pokémon to train instead of just plowing through the game with my starter, a really nice touch.
Other than that, the graphics are a lot more appealing up to the point in which they were updated (the updated tileset has been applied up to right before Union Cave), and the game has a good variety of new Pokémon/moves and the Fairy-type (Whitney's Gym is reworked from Normal-type to Fairy-type since most of the Pokémon in that Gym became Fairy-type with the type's introduction), so it's pretty good.
The one thing I'm not a fan of is the Gym Leaders all being named after the hacker's friends with their own OC sprites, but that's a nitpick. I think it's definitely a good hack.
I wish more games did something like this. I would totally play a DQ game with one. Or a Pokemon randomizer that actually randomized the maps.
>Or a Pokemon randomizer that actually randomized the maps.
How would that be done when Pokémon is so linear? You'd have to make a tool that can essentially self-create decent new regions (actually looks like a city instead of Glitch City graphics, all have the necessary important buildings, etc.), and that would be the hack of all hacks if someone could do that.
I liked so far
>The second reality project
>Brutal Mario (sadly unfinished, it was a blast getting to each level just to see the custom sprites, bosses and music)
>Master Hand 2000
I'm currently playing "Mario Gives up 1". The level design is really good and the hack is fun overall. Also,
>"In Soviet Russia, keys make you"
Those would be my recommendations.
Hey /vr/, has anyone ever hacked Gran Turismo at all? Like I dunno, implementing the Japanese soundtrack or restoring a tiny bit of cut content?
Actually there seems to be quite a bit of that. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zh7Gg8bWcaY
>driving around as the course background
Did the GT devs literally place all the effects on little car models?
Sorry, I didn't remember the hack's name (played it last year). The correct name is
>"SMW 2012: Master Hand's Doomsday"
Map design is lazy, but levels are quite varied and fun to play. There are some "Mario 64 Bowser" themed levels that are quite well done. I didn't finish it because the sound fucked up midgame and never recovered. Probably because of hardware and software (Snes9X EX Plus on OUYA...yeah)

too bad it will never happen

You guys are pretty cool
Toying with a Luck Run on the Japanese version at the moment. Limiting myself to the Leather Equipment and Baselard/Alucart set and its as fun as ever. It could be more challenging, but that would take an entire castle full of Doppleganger/Richter level characters. Tried to Tetra Spirit-cheese the DG and he promptly misted through it. Brought a smile to my face.
My favorite SOTN playthroughs are the ones with the Luck code. But even then, you soon get quite strong for the game (even more when you get to 50 MP for Soul Steal). I'll try making the saturn version work on an emulator, to see the extra places and play as Maria. It's a pain to set up, though.
you just need to mount an iso and load SSF
Also the extra garden isnt really worth it imo, the saturn version is overated, I like the dove wielding maria from the PSN/PSP games instead.
Has anyone used Rockman 6 editor before? Romhacking.net says it's easy to use but the text is all gibberish so I don't even know where to begin. I tried using google but nothing helpful or relevant shows up.
If you have Windows XP, you need to install the Japanese language pack so you can read it. If you can read moon. Without it, in-application text is gibberish.
If you have Windows 7, you're FUCKED unless you have the supertard omega corporate edition or some shit. Mere professional isn't good enough anymore.
Yeah I've tried it, and it seems pretty good. I use MegaFLEX myself, because i'm working on a MM5 levelhack and megaflex has fucking great support for MM5. Megaflex also support MM6, but it's VERY limited, while this editor apparently lets you do much much more.
I can't really help though, I haven't used it much. I checked it, saw that it seemed pretty alright, but sticked to megaflex since that was enough for me. You can't really ask much help with level editors though. Those kind of editors ARE the help.
I hope MM6 editing isn't as much as a bitch as MM5. MM5 uses some mandatory palette swap in some stages which are a bit of a pain to figure out when you get started. Considering MM6's complexity in graphics, it might be the same...
Hmm yeah, it seems to be the same. See those tiles at the bottom that look all fucked up? That's the 2nd set of tiles; at some point during the stage it switches, and the tiles at the bottom are now use-able, but most of those at the top aren't anymore. In MM5 in some levels, some tiles are actually available in both cases to make the transition.
IIRC Megaflex lets you decide when the transition occurs, but you have to be careful with it. So, if you can't do that with this editor, you MIGHT be able to do it in megaflex (unless it's something megaflex can do for mm5 and not for mm6 since that program has very limited mm6 support).
AFAIK that system was only used in MM5 and 6. A trick they used to allow for more and different tiles, and therefore more varied textures in the levels. One of the reasons why MM5 and 6 look so good and varied compared to the previous games.
If I can't find it, and if you're still interested, I should still have it on my old computer but I can't be arsed to hook that up now.
Make sure to get version 0.6 (last time it checked it was the last) as it's much better than the previous one. I remember only finding that version on some obscure megaman romhacking forum, if that can help...
But like I said, if it's MM6 you want, megaflex probably won't satisfy you. It has very limited support for MM6, as it can only let you :
- change the tiles in a screen
- change enemy placement
BUT - you can't add MORE enemies than there are, you have to stick to the enemies used on that screen, you can't change the type of scrolling nor the direction of the scrolling, etc etc... it's very limited. That program above lets you do more, as iirc you can choose any enemy. Not sure if it lets you change the type of direction of scrolling since MM6 is pretty complicated in that regard with its sidepaths and all...
Final Fantasy Tactics Kind Of PSP (KO for short) is a gameplay improvement mod meant to make the WotL experience more enjoyable for those who have already beaten WotL and yearn for more. Unlike other mods, KO PSP doesn’t necessarily intend to make things harder- it does that by proxy, however, because skills, jobs, and items have been rebalanced to be less overpowered and more interesting.
Instead of giving you boring blocks of text to read, here’s a run down some of the biggest features in KO PSP!
Slowdown has been removed.
Multiplayer items and battles can be accessed (in one form or another) in single player mode.
Levels scale with the player.
Skills, items, and jobs have been rebalanced while keeping their original flavor.
Luso and Balthier have repurposed skills, are no longer clones of other characters.
Many anti-frustration features have been added, such as Errands only taking 1 day to complete, and all shops having the same types of items available, so you don’t need to constantly run to certain towns to buy certain items, and Treasure Hunts are all 100% finds.
Basically, this mod was designed to be the definitive version of WotL that anybody can play and enjoy, whether they’re an amateur or a seasoned pro. Hopefully everyone will enjoy it! Note that in order for the patch to work properly, you’ll need to use a EUR ISO or else there’ll be bugs.
Looks like there is a new version since last time I checked ! Fucking nice! Damn I should finish my MM5 level hack, I only have 3 levels and a half to finish.
Those took out the Spell Charges. I could play the PSX version but I was in a mood to play the 8-bit version. And was just hoping someone would have something that would make the game a bit more playable.
>By the way, I've been having a problem with Pastebin recently. It always makes my pastes
>unlisted even though I set them to public.
You could try to sign up an account instead of making them as a guest. I think you can edit pastes and change the settings.
Has anyone ever done a romhack of the English Battle Network games to put the cut content back in?
It's a lost beta version of DKC; nobody knows where it came from but they say if you play it you become haunted by the spirit of Expand Dong.
In sincerety it's a hugely glitched up version of DKC, I think the Championship version since it starts you in the middle of a level. It honestly gave me the willies with the glitched music, but there's nothing actually of value from it.
While not a romhack per se because it's a PC game (though it did obviously have console versions), I found this and thought you'd might like it.
Behold, Rayman Optimum. The best version of Rayman, beating out even the GOG version: http://raymanpc.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=9466
The beginning of 1-3 was intended to be a puzzle: the second floor is almost perfectly symmetrical and you're supposed to spot the difference. What trouble are you having with Stardust Cave?
Attached is a picture of all my Roms, Crystal island is alright.
Just can't get past the first hill. I can't get enough speed on the quicksand to jump it, at even at max power I don't think I'd be able to make it. Plus if I go to World 1, how do I get back to World 2?
Shit, you're absolutely right. You're supposed to use the music box to get to and from World 2 but I forgot that you can use the pipe item to warp out of there. I gotta fix that.
Depending on the emulator, if you upload the save file I can probably fix it for you.
I rearranged the pipe exits to fix the problem. If you're not stuck anymore there's no point in redownloading it, though.
I'll be trying "The 7th Annual Vanilla Level Design Contest: Collaboration Hack". SMW Central collaborations are always good.
Well, Star Road 2 is coming, and looks fucking beautiful.
I've played both versions of Maria, and while I understand why you prefer the PSP version, I like the Saturn Maria because it makes the game more difficult, and her powers are great (tfw unleashing a Salamander-like blue dragon all over the screen).
I'll have a look at that, thanks, anon!
I'll try them out. Thanks for giving me something to play this weekend.
I missed last Romhack thread. Does anyone have it archived? That would be great.
It's in the "waiting to be moderated" section. You should check it out as it has some interesting hacks, but a part of them doesn't get past the moderation process (a mod has to play the hack and consider it good enough to be published on the site).
There's a ps1 version of it too if people aren't willing to play the psp version.
I've actually been dabbling in FFT romhacks again recently and thinking of potentially doing one of my own.
A personal favorite of mine is Rebirth. Changes just enough to make the game a nice challenge (no bullshit like in 1.3) but alters the balance a lot (particularly speed changes all around as well as magic getting a buff so you can actually use it at a reliable speed late game)
-Both versions of Super Pika Land Ultra
-Mario Gives Up
-The Second Reality Project Reloaded and its sequel
Why didn't I think of that? I'll do it soon, thanks.
To be honest, as far as I know you are pretty much on your own as there aren't any tools/guides to hacking DKC games.
I haven't played it yet, so I can't comment if it's good or not. Keep in mind, that it's unfinished, so it's probably glitchy.
As far as I know, SMW Central held a vanilla level contest few months ago.
Holy crap, it's great. I dunno if it should be on the list since it's not a ROM hack, though.
Should I include it or not?
I've been working on my Kirbys Adventure hack for while now, and though might as well post it there too.
First two worlds are fully hacked, four levels each
+both has one secret level.
oh shit TSRP2R?
also there's this hack I found while looking around RHDN, it's called Rockman 4: Burst Chaser X Air Sliding.
Exactly what the title sounds like, but it's made by Peercast and that one Tsukiwhatever guy (the fuck is his name)
Not the anon who said they'd test it, but I've played the first world so far and the level design incorporates the lack of floating very well. It's great thus far, though I haven't been able to find the way to access the secret level yet.
Given the naming theme thus far, I can expect King Diodiodio when you get to the last world, yes?
>Given the naming theme thus far, I can expect King Diodiodio when you get to the last world, yes? Hacks title is supposed to be just reference and nothing else, I guess I could do more with it but Im not good at drawing/making sprites so outside of few copy&pasted sprites from KDL2 and Lolo2&3 they are same
Hint for accessing secret levels,
each level has one switch, and you'll need to find all of them(four per world) to access it.
I know it really isn't a 'rom hack', but does anyone know some decent hacks for the Playstation era Final Fantasy games.
Besides FFT, since I already know all of those, and everyone suggests 1.3 for it, which is one of the WORST hacks I've played for it.
Just a random question but, have you ever beat a Rom hack even before beating the original game?
Does anyone have suggestions for Chrono Trigger romhacks? I want to replay through it, but, I don't want something extremely difficult, but, something to require me to think a bit more would be nice.
KALE for editing levels and other stuff, YY-CHR for graphics(+virtuanes for getting correct palettes), WindHex32 for hex/text editing and finally bizhawk for PPU view(mostly for making table files for text editing).
As for removing floating, I originally wanted it to be more limited(kinda like kirby64) to give abilities more use, but since I couldn't do that, I had to remove it completely which also gives more potential for more interesting/complex levels and that everything doesn't have to be blocked or designed that players cant just use float to skip 90% of level.
That one is not intended, but
one above that area is where you, can through to the left is and switch isnt in that area
And yes, floating is pretty much only thing I changed, which gives abilities more use.
Aw shit, I though that I already fixed all world-map related issues, sorry about that.
There's Prophet's Guile on the list, maybe you'll like it.
I think you have to download all three of them to get the full experience.
Horrible news, everyone: my IP has been banned from Pastebin and I don't know why. I contacted the admin about that, but I don't except to be unbanned. (Funnily enough, I still made an account just fine.) Does anyone know any good alternative to Pastebin?
This should fix problems with world-map and in that room, also it has temp fix for out-of-bounds glitch in world2(6)'s world-map, just go through door(s) and it takes you back to world 1, where you can go back to where you were before, beating any level should fix your save.
Doesn't that have new content in it? I wouldn't mind that after I do the original game, but, I was hoping for something that would follow along the game's original storyline first. I want to replay the game, I just want it to be a bit harder.
Here is a picture of a mod I was working on a while ago.
I have one very important question:
As some of you may know, my IP has been banned by Pastebin. I don't know why (I always had to enter catchpas before our lists got approved, maybe that's the reason they banned me) but I don't except them to unban me. I send an e-mail to admin asking why I got banned.
So, the question is, should I put the lists on Google Drive or should I continue using Pastebin? (I can still use VPN/proxies to post stuff.)
Here's how the lists look like on Google Drive.
That part is bit kaizo-tier as I didnt have enough time to fix/test it, but
you are supposed to slide into spikes, while holding down+right on dpad, and then on right timing release both and quickly jump and hold left not to fall off, it takes few tires but its possible to pull off, webm related.
Well it is
secretlevel, which are supposed to be hard(and getting there in first place is not easy), although I agree that its bit too cryptic so I guess I'll change it at some point to something different.
I have some pre patched roms of FF2 and FF3 for the NES, but for some reason when i boot them with nestopia or fceultra the title screens are glitchy. I've been wanting to play these games but i'm afraid i'll run into problems if i try. Could they have been possibly patched with bad roms? I'll share them if needed.
There you go, this compilation features English version of Demo 7 and all three of Brutal Mario Complete hacks.
Damn, this is some solid level design. Not too hard but more substantial than the offical levels. Keep it up.
Hope you find Whispy Woods' health and behavior timing addresses and get somebody to make him less of a pushover.
Castlevania Bloodlines got an Enhanced Colors hack, for those who thought the pallete was weird (blue skeltals and such)
It looks quite good. I think that game
should get more attention.
How did you react when playing the original?
I'm >>1876539 . I completed world 1. I thought your hack was awesome. It was really hard to not depend on floating, but it was quite rewarding (Surprisingly, Kirby without floating turned out to be a solid platforming game) I'll keep playing it and trying to get to the secret levels.
Keep making amazing hacks, /vr/o.
The fuck is with each file?
Not blaming you, I mean this at the original author.
The All Levels one doesn't have the cool overworld, only the bowser one does (wow, a cool new overworld and I only have access to one level) and the Luigi road one is constantly playing distorted, garbage noise instead of music and I can't get past the first level because "lets be cryptic lol"
Yes I mad. Whoever made these original compilations done fucked up.
>garbage noise instead of music
That's not the author's fault that's the emu scene's fault. Anyway if you want it to not sound like shit and play you will unfortunately have to use ZSNES as it's the only emu that play SMW hacks correctly with custom music.
>How did you react when playing the original?
To be honest, I played a lot of Super Mario 64 (both N64 and DS versions), I just never got to the final level.
How come no one mentioned that R4MI got another update?
/vr/ has always been slower than /v/, so this isn't very surprising.
>Should I include it or not?
I would say this falls in the same realm as Sonic 3 Complete or Pokemon Crystal Emu Edition, so take that comment for what it's worth.
That said, since we're not putting up anything like Doom 64 EX I don't really think it quite belongs. I could see how it fits though.
Maybe don't give the player Tornado so soon, or make 'em lose it end of level, UFO style - it breaks the game a bit, basically flight with invincibility
>But you can't fly forever with it
I still sequence break'd a few levels using it in the right spot, and it make the whole sequence in the second world (forget level) with the dudes who attack when you try to inhale them monstrously easy.
So I'm trying to patch a SMW rom (from the GoodSNES 2.04 romset) with The Second Reality Project 2 Reloaded patch (version 2.1) and it just isn't working. Does anyone know what may be the issue or could someone post a link to a prepatched rom?
>So I'm trying to patch a SMW rom (from the GoodSNES 2.04 romset) with The Second Reality Project 2 Reloaded patch (version 2.1) and it just isn't working.
That because your SMW ROM doesn't have a header. You can add it using a tool called stripsnes or...
>Does anyone know what may be the issue or could someone post a link to a prepatched rom?
Download the patch and then apply it to the clean US Super Mario World ROM with a patching tool like Lunar IPS or Floating IPS. Alternatively, you can download the pre-patched version of Dr. Mario World's vastly superior remake here:
The list is almost complete. If anyone wants to recommend a hack, then please do it now.
You know, seeing this thread makes me want to continue with third ROM hack thread right after this one hits the post limit .
>tfw you want to play these creative SMW hacks on your Super UFO Pro 8, but most of the time it doesn't work for one reason or another
Damn people using audio tracks that were never meant to be played on an actual SNES
