Super Mario Kart - The Impala Battles

06 September 2006 10:08PM EST - Update by Ok Impala!

ROM Hacks News

Super Mario Kart - The Impala Battles was (besides several Dutch translations) the first ROM hack released by Ok Impala! in 2002 and is still enjoyed by many Super Mario Kart fans world-wide!

Super Mario Kart - The Impala Battles is a hack of Super Mario Kart in which the four battle tracks have been completely changed.

After release of this hack Ok Impala! teamed up with Stifu to create a complete graphics/level/music/text hack of Super Mario Kart. This, still in progress, hack is named Epic Racers - Impala Kart Courses.

Until the release of Epic Racers - Impala Kart Courses enjoy The Impala Battles, this rather simple Battle Level only hack, for a completely new Battle Challenge with some friends!

Segagaga fan translation in the works

27 August 2006 3:30AM EST - Update by Shih Tzu

Translations News

I saw this over at GameSetWatch: Apparently, a guy (who also runs a game-industry translation outfit) is working on producing a fan translation of Segagaga, that wacky Dreamcast game-industry sim where you take the reins of the ailing Sega corporation and band together with famous company mascots to demolish all rivals and put the house that Sonic built back on top. Just like real life! Oh, wait. Anyway, it looks like possibly the nerdiest game ever and must have been lots of fun to make.

As for the translation, while it looks like there are still lots of hacking issues to be resolved, the writing in the first preliminary screens is looking quite good. Let’s just hope the translators are savvy enough to catch the many, many Sega references in the game (the fact that the producer doesn’t even know who “Alisa” is worries me somewhat, but he also mentions that he’s seeking a lot of help from more versed fans, so that’s promising).

More info and screens at the producer’s 1up blog.

Nightwolve releases Ys Typing Tutor Game

17 August 2006 9:29AM EST - Update by Princeleaf

Translations News

A long long time ago, when I was working on the now defunct Zwei!! project, I discovered it had two special mini-games that become accessible only after certain events are completed. One game is a tetris clone that I don’t care too much for, the other is this typing tutor game, referred to by Falcom as “Typing of Ys.” Years later, I thought it would be nice to separate this game out of Zwei!! to make it available for everyone after someone brought it up in a messageboard forum I visit. So here you go! I was hoping to get Deuce to translate all the Romanji, but that never panned out so I’ve released all existing work that was done. You can play with the text files in the data folder and save whatever words you’d like the game to use yourself, if you wish.

Translations News

That’s right, we’ve done it again - a DBZ translation is seen through to completion! There’s not much to say, really. This patch is the result of well over a year of work and, hopefully, it shows.

I’ve made some headway with a couple of other projects on my plate, but more on that at the site!

Check it out!

FDS Builder version 8/1/06

01 August 2006 6:52PM EST - Update by Neil

Utilities News

KingMike has updated his FDS Builder program.

Quoth the King:

I changed the format to name files filenumber.dkx instead of fdsfilename.dkx. This should fix issues with games that use letters prohibited in DOS filenames. I also noticed, and fixed a bug where when loading sides 2+, the program would assume the .fds file had a header (now it checks for a emulation header). Now it also checks if the last file (specified by the FDS disk card format) on a side, really is the last file. Some games will say there is x files in the header, but will check for more files as a copy-protection measure. Though my program assumes that “hidden” files will immediately follow the last not-hidden file.

FDS Builder is a program that takes Famicom Disk System images (i.e. games) and seperates them into their proper individual files for easier hacking.

NINJA 2.0 July 26 Beta

25 July 2006 6:24PM EST - Update by D

Utilities News

A new beta has been uploaded for NINJA 2.0. The following changes have been made since the last version archived on

  • Added a check to make sure target file is writeable before patching.
  • Added icon previews to the GUI.
  • Added a detection for GB ROMs using magic bytes provided by Aerdan.
  • Rewrote a lot of NINJA code to use escape strings instead of chr() evilness.
  • Added support for using NINJA as a frontend for applying xdelta format patches. Required you have the xdelta executable (xdelta.exe) in the program path.
  • Added icons for xdelta format and options for it to the file association menu.
  • Fixed a glitch that was preventing users’ language selection from actually being applied.
  • Edited the German translation to match Tauwasser’s suggestions.
  • Retored ninja.bat for command-line users who refuse to install .NET 2.0.
  • Fixed a glitch that prevented the command line options from showing when you entered no arguments.
  • Added a “Please Wait” dialog to the patch creator since it can take a while, and otherwise people may think the application has frozen (seems a little flaky because all the power goes to the console read).
  • Fixed IPS patching to work with the corrupt patches some IPS creators produce that do not end in “EOF”.
  • Changed the About dialog’s address to the new page at

NINJA 2.0 is a new patch format that supports internal display data, file validation, directory patching, and can create patches that will work on any ROM format for NES, SNES, Game Boy, Nintendo 64, TurboGrafx-16, Sega Genesis, Sega Master System and Atari Lynx.

The official NINJA patcher can apply the following patch formats:

  • RUP (NINJA 2.0)
  • IPS (International Patching System)
  • PPF (PlayStation Patch Format 1.0/2.0/3.0
  • FFP/PAT (FireFlower Patch)
  • PAT (Microsoft Binary File Compare output)
  • GDIFF (Generic Diff Format)

If you add xdelta.exe to the NINJA folder, NINJA can also be used as a graphical front end for xdelta format patches.

This will be the final beta. Please report any and all bugs and behavioral issues in either this post’s thread on’s forum or on the NINJA support forum at
