I'm bored and we have a translation request post so why not a hack ideas post?
My idea
A hack of moon walker to change all the little girls you save to little boys, when you save them they will scream something such as "NO! I don't want to play the naked game!" and run. The enemys will then be cops trying to protect the kids.
A more realistic moonwalker all around.

Add cheat code detection.

When it detects cheats being used, the Moonwalker moons the player.

:laugh: That idea made me LOLZ!

Here's an idea, a graphics hack of either Code Name Viper or Rolling Thunder and make it into Perfect Dark, I think that'll be pretty cool.

What about instead of changing the girls into boys, changing them into naked Marios!

I have some REAL ideas, how about hacking some of the Assault Suits games for Super Famicom. Also how about hacking the Mickey Mouse's Magical Quest Trilogy, you could do a LOT with either one of those games, new levels, possibly new abilities, or put all the abilities in one game etc. put all the characters in one game, make sprites for Donald in the gear from I and II, and sprites for Minnie with gear from I and III. for Assault Suits you could make new levels, you could make sprites for new mechs (you can also maneuver with Front Mission: Gunhazard which is essentially an Assault Suits game) you could make new weapons or add ons like shoulder rocket launchers etc.

They both have a bunch of potential. I'm not asking someone to do them for me because I am to lazy, but if someone REALLY wants to hack but has no ideas, well here are some dandys if you ask me.

Someone should hack Super Mario RPG. I don't care what they do as long as they hack SMRPG. (Oh, and not a hardtype hack.)
I always dreamed of doing a Pokemon hack

I was slowly, shittily, but surely working on a tool to hack SMRPG. Progress has completely halted, though, because there's more important things in life.
This is the best [and only] data I've seen about it.

Oh, yeah, I played Super Monkey RPG. That shit was sweet. I meant _more_ SMRPG hacks though. ^^

I've thought of an idea a while back but just kept it to myself because I know nothing about romhacking.  I was thinking.. why not take a game, I had in mind an rpg, so let's say it's (insert your favorite rpg).  With that game you could leave the original game but add side areas or other quests into the game, kind of like what an expansion pack does to a PC game.  What do you guys think?  That'd probably be pretty hard huh?  Oh and while your at it drastically reduce the number of random battles, who needs those bothersome things! :P

Actually that idea is rather smart, the random battles thing I mean. Take old games which have WAY to many random battles and tone it down a bit. See? We get good ideas already!(Along with my moon walker realism hack idea).

how about some Donkey Kong Country and Vectorman love. Also Sparkster/Rocket Knight Adventures. Oh! and Wonderboy/Monster World.

These are all great platformers with a lot of possibilities and options that people haven't tapped into yet.

All these people saying "let's hack Donkey Kong!" Not a single person has given half a decent reason to hack Donkey Kong. What hasn't been tapped into? The game is pretty much figured out after the first few levels.

As for ideas... I would love to see some utilities for Star Tropics. Or if someone could make a function where you could have more than one point that triggers the "cut scenes" in FF1. Like a chapter selection. At all the important places in the original and they screw with it from there. Like, the opening being in front of Corneria Castle, then the bridge, then the panel where the boat is at, then another outside of Elfland that is only usable after the Prince is awake, then so on and so forth.

Probably way too complex or big, but a thought none the less. I would love chapters in my game.

Yeah. Hacking new content into an existing game is more difficult then altering what's already there by a significant degree. The idea would make for some nice hacks though for those who could pull it off. It's certainly feasible, just only accessible to more advanced hackers unless some utility was designed to make it easier.

for Donkey Kong for the very least you could try porting characters from different games back and forth, along with animals, that's just for starters.

Like Super Mario World it's just a good game, and just making more or different levels with different tricks or challenges, just like any Mario game, would add fun and challenge to fans. How is that hard to understand?

if you felt like doing a SMW like hack but wanted to do something new, different, and a little more challenging, well there you go.
