NESICIDE gets a face lift and goes open source!

30 December 2009 4:50AM EST - Update by HJRodrigo

Utilities News

Christopher Pow has joined forces with Tim Sarbin aka “essial” to make NESICIDE open source, cross platform (OSX, Linux, and Windows) and multi threaded. This bumps NESICIDE to version 2 and the rendering is done in OpenGL, GUI is using Qt, and audio is using libSDL. NESICIDE now has a git page, which can be found at http://gitorious.org/nesicide. essial says that if you would like to contribute, you can contact them (most of the time) at irc.freenode.net on channel #nesicide

Staff note: There is no new binary release yet, so for now if you’re interested in trying out the program you’ll have no choice but to grab the current source and compile it for yourself.

Final Fantasy VI Hardtype Released!

17 December 2009 3:14PM EST - Update by Eternal248

ROM Hacks News

For those of you who felt that Final Fantasy VI (known as Final Fantasy III outside of Japan) was too easy, Final Fantasy VI Hardtype is for you!

Final Fantasy VI Hardtype is basically a rebalancing and difficulty hack that also includes a variety of glitch fixes. This includes the Vanish/Doom Fix and Genji Glove Fix amongst others.

This is purely a gameplay hack. The story has not been changed!

A few of the major changes are enemy AI, and Espers. Enemies actually use intelligent and more powerful attacks more often. Enemies can be tough. Who knew?

Some espers now teach different spells- and a new spell has been added: Blind- which is learnable from Ramuh.

Even if you’re not a huge fan of Final Fantasy VI, it’s worth checking Hardtype out just to see the wide variety of changes made to enemies.

Try and beat the Dragons and Omega- they’re now true superbosses!

A New Effort in Arabic Translation

23 December 2009 4:46AM EST - Update by Juza

Translations News

After becoming inspired when we saw ”Captain Tsubasa 2” translated to Arabic on the NES, we decided to translate games into the Arabic language. The beginning of the journey was a game called “Dementium: The Ward” on Nintendo DS, to Arabic users.

A youtube video of the patch in action can be seen here. For more information and a patch, you can visit our website.

Staff note: As this is a translation for the Nintendo DS, we are currently unable to host this patch here.

New Contra Patch

09 December 2009 9:22AM EST - Update by Pennywise

Translations News

Ten years have passed since the MadHacker first did his translation for this and now after all these years, I feel I have a definitive patch for everyone. Aside from nostalgia and that cool Gryzor title screen, everything is superior to the old patch. I mean no disrespect to the MadHacker and his patch, but ROM hacking has come a long way since the early days and I am here to show that. Enjoy the fruits of my labor.

Zelda: Link's Awakening Restoration

01 December 2009 7:54PM EST - Update by Artemis251

ROM Hacks News

This was a quick little project but is somewhat notable for big Zelda fans: A patch was recently finished restoring Zelda: Link’s Awakening (and its DX version) that put the content originally cut by Nintendo’s localization team back into the game. It restores three main parts of the game:

  • Changes the Necklace back into the Mermaid’s swimsuit top (and changes the dialogue to a closer translation of the Japanese version)
  • Changes the Hippo sprites in Animal Village
  • Fixes the ‘Tale Key’ typo

As an extra bonus, a cave taken out of the game received a normal entrance: check around Kanalet Castle and see what’s inside!
