NBA Jam 21: The Definite Edition?

13 April 2021 8:39AM EST - Update by ponlork

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

For years people have been yearning for an Arcade mod of NBA Jam TE, and those people will have to keep waiting. But user Ponlork is bringing that dream one step closer to reality with his NBA Jam 21 mod for the PlayStation 1 which is the closest you’ll get to the Arcade experience at home. Other than the Arcade version of course.

Rather than being stuck in development hell for years, Ponlork opted to go for the incremental approach of releasing updates periodically until the ultimate goal of replacing the entire roster with today’s NBA Players is complete. Version 1.1 adds 15 new players into the mix (10 active, 2 legends, and 3 secret characters).

These players consist of Lebron James, Nikola Jokic, Kawhi Leonard, Kyrie Irving, Bradley Beal, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Joel Embiid, Luka Doncic, Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, The Incredible Hulk, Cyberpunk and Snoop Dogg. The full 2021 NBA All-Star starting lineup is featured!

What separates this mod from other NBA Jam mods before it is that all the players have distinction. Every player has their own unique head sprites and the resolution is large enough to recognize the faces. The announcer calls each player by name, there’s varying skin tone palettes, and there’s a sprite scaling feature that is able to resize the players which gives it a extra level of depth.

In addition to that, NBA Jam 21 restores a lost feature that was disabled due to pressure from Congress to minimize videogame violence in the early 90s. If you’re familiar with the slang term “Posterized”, it’s a term used for when a player gets dunked on so emphatically that he is sent tumbling to the floor. This falling effect along with the backboard shattering were originally in the game but were eventually removed.

The Posterized feature is fully restored and the author is hopeful to one day restore the backboard glass shattering effect too. Although it’s still early, it’s exciting to see what’s coming down the pipeline. Boom Shakalaka!

Dragon Warrior I&II (GBC) gets Modern Spell Names

11 April 2021 7:40AM EST - Update by jimjam707

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

After a whole afternoon in the making, the ‘Dragon Warrior 1 & 2 - Spell Name Update’ ROM hack for the Gameboy Color versions of Dragon Warrior 1 and 2 is finally out!

The patch replaces the older styled spell names (Firebal, Firebane, Explodet, etc.) with the new(er) names used by the series in English localisations since Dragon Quest VIII on the Playstation 2 (Sizz, Sizzle, Kaboom, etc.). Nothing else in the ROM is changed except spell names so all existing saves should continue to work.

Here comes Miami Vice: The Video Game ver. 1.2!

03 April 2021 9:53AM EST - Update by CryinOnion

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

After the request of one of my subscribers, here you have a revised and improved version of this hack that turns a game based on a Japanese TV show cloned from Miami Vice, into the videogame that many fans were waiting for.

The biggest novelty of this ver.1.2 is the inclusion of an additional patch in the rar file with the hack translated 100% into Spanish. Now all Spanish speakers can enjoy the story and dialogues easily. Some extra work is done too to fix some grammatical inconsistencies in the dialogues of the English version. And of course, there’s much more!

For more information you can check the README files, available in both languages.

I hope You enjoy it!

EightBound Regal - Final Fantasy X EarthBound of the Easy Type

02 April 2021 6:23PM EST - Update by Polinym

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

Last year, Polinym released the most up-to-date version of his hack EightBound, which turns EarthBound into a Final Fantasy game. It combines elements of all of the first nine games to create an epic Final Fantasy adventure. Players can check out the original hack here:, or see its trailer in the related link.

EightBound was intended to be a very challenging hack that was still accessible to less skilled players. However, Polinym received many complaints about the difficulty. In response, Polinym has created a brand new edition of EightBound that caters to casual gamers.

Why Regal? Because this hack gives you the royal treatment!

Introducing EightBound Regal! Regal creates a whole new experience for players of all skill levels to be able to beat. Even a beginner who has never played an RPG before can reach an ending! Features of EightBound Regal include:

- Cheat protection has been removed!

- Significantly lowered encounter rates!

- A faster adventure that doesn’t waste more of your oh-so precious time!

- A never-before-seen story arc!

- New characters!

- New abilities!

- New bosses!

- A revamped interface!

The creator of the hack also wishes to make this statement: To all those who thought that EightBound was too difficult, Polinym is so sorry for all the pain my hack has put you through. He never realised that you have to cheat past the struggles you encounter in lif-,er, games. He is now a changed man. Now Polinym says that if your situation ever becomes too painful to endure, remember: it’s okay for you to escape your problem. He doesn’t want a single one of you players to think that an unfair reality you’ve been forced into is the only one that you have to live. Your ability to play EarthBound hacks on your computer is an amazing miracle. You deserve to spend your days in happiness.

Dreams can come true! No more tears!

Finally, Polinym wishes to reiterate that live reactions are the most helpful form of feedback for improving ROMHacks. The uploading of video playthroughs with commentary is highly encouraged. Also, he requests that commenters and reviewers refrain from posting spoilers for this hack’s new story.

Star Fox Exploration Showcase v7.19.3

31 March 2021 5:36PM EST - Update by kandowontu

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

The latest and greatest version has been released. It comes with some bug fixes, as well as 3 new features: Model Test Mode, Super Boost and Freeze/Explore Mode!

Model Test Mode is pretty straightforward; it allows you to view all of the models in the game, rotate them, zoom them in and out, and also “draw” with them.

Super boost in god mode - while boosting with X, hold B to boost even faster! (Speed is 65 by default, 83 for normal boost, 123 for super boost!)

Freeze/Explore mode allows you to stop the ship from moving forward automatically, essentially removing the rails. You can manually move forward and backwards, as well as continue to fire (as the rest of the stage will still be active!)

Fixed a few small bugs, such as the background tilting issue for 2 player mode.

Enjoy, and hoping to always bring big things to the next release!

Full Changelog: 7.19.3

  • Model Test Mode: Select on title screen
  • B/Y to change the model
  • JU/JD/JL/JR to rotate
  • L/R to zoom in/out

  • Freeze + Explore mode! Hold B and press START (and then unpause) to stop the ship dead in its tracks!
  • Move forward with X and backwards with B
  • Joypad2 camera controls and Joypad1 camera view changes work
  • L+R+RIGHTJPAD to get out of frozen mode.
  • Enemies and level keeps running!
  • Further refined the colors of Fox/Slippy/Falco/Peppy’s ships (low poly+high poly)(Requested by Delta)
  • Replaced the training level with one made by CoolK. Thanks CoolK!
  • Created unique border limits for training level
  • Added 2 new ships to choose from, the car and the bike from 2-6 (Requested by Delta)
  • New title screen, removed sprite of team on title screen
  • Fix nukes so that pressing A detonates them on command after they are deployed when not in god mode
  • Fixed enemy weapon deflection when doing barrel rolls
