Hiya! No I'm not taking it personally or anything I just expected a bit more response I don't know why! :D Anyway if anyone thinks they can atleast try 1 of them, just update on your progress please! Thanks. 8) ::)

Anyway I NEW idea: Nothing major really but I've been thinking about Sonic thinking he never really had alot of SNES games and stuff. Anyway maybe someone could make a hack into a racing game probably Mario Kart (SNES) and turn all of the characters into Sonic Characters i.e Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy Rose, DR Eggman, Sonya, Manic etc! ;D

interesting, have you ever played Sonic Drift for Game Gear? you could call it like Super Sonic Drift.

also I know it's been said but I don't think in this thread so how about Metroid 2 recreated in either the Super Metroid or Zero Mission engine. There are level editing tools for both, correct?

No I haven't actually, I'll try getting a copy from RomNation!

Sonic Drift 1 was only release in Japan, Sonic Drift 2 was released internationally, but was known as "Sonic Drift Racing" in PAL regions to spare confusion that the US gamers got when they saw "Sonic Drift 2". but what do you need a Euro version for? just pick up a Jap or US version if that's all you can find.

Thanks! ;D Yeah the games quite alright but I think a hack into SMK would be MUCH better because of the graphics and stuff on SNES! ;)

yeah, I didn't expect you to hack Sonic Drift, just to know it existed, and get a feel for it to add some personality to your hack.

Hey Panzer! Yeah I know ya didn't want me to hack the game  ;D Yeah I might stall what I've been doing with SMK (Adding new characters i.e Diddy an accessorizing the characters for a while and start turning some characters into Sonic ones...as noones shown any interest, but please peeps atleast consider some of the ideas they are cool 4 sure! :laugh:

EDIT- Another Idea - Something about Earthbound reminds me of South Park I think it's the caps and dodgy characters but it's also the meteorite/alien storyline which i think is reminiscent of the South Park 64 (N64) when a meteorite hits the earth animals go crazy (chickens etc) and it's all because of aliens and shit, I haven't played all the way through Earthbound yet (I'm in the middle of finding Lucy in Rest Peace Valley.. I think it's called!) anyway I haven't thought it through at all just thought it'd be cool if characters were changed to South Park ones maybe Ness could be Stan, Kyle or my FAVE Cartman! ;D and for animals to be like chickens from the game, cows and for the starmen and stuff to be changed to the aliens and maybe even areas and storyline.

Well since SEGA seems to be ignoring it’s loyal fans by releasing crappy sequels that don’t even resemble their previous games *cough* Shining Force *cough*  I thought I would throw out the idea of making a sequel to one of the Greatest RPG’s of all time, Panzer Dragoon Saga. See my idea below.

Why not hack Panzer Dragoon Orta by changing it from a rail shooter in to an RPG?. You could use the graphics from the X-box game and just tweak the game play to include the RPG elements from the Saturn game. The story would also need to be re-wrote as well in order to be considered a true sequel to Panzer Dragoon Saga.

I think that would be way more difficult than you anticipate. Taking graphics from X-Box, throwing them onto a Saturn title (a console a few generations back), would probably be next to impossible. Unless there was a way of scaling down the graphical quality to fit the system.

DS you are misunderstanding him. He is preposing using Orta as the base game to hack. Not porting something back to the saturn but rather making an RPG out of Orta.

now I'll reply to the idea:

first we need good XBOX emulators and hacking tools, that is unless you are a crazy wicked programmer. Even with that it would be a near IMPOSSIBLE project. I know someone has to make the tools, but usually it's easier to hack for an already "developed" and documented system.

It is a great idea though don't get me wrong.

Not even close, although I am trying to hack a sega cd game but we'll see how far that goes. I don't think this would ever happen but I just thought it was a kick ass idea.

Most of my hacks has Coming Soon in it

I'd plan to make a NES Version of MegaMari with different storylines. It's noit the continuation of the original. I'm doing all Megaman games except Megaman 1. I'm gonna randomly googlesearch the opposite gender versions of the 8 bosses and draw them myself. In Marisa's Deadly alliance, you have to face Alice Margatroid as your enemy. It's a MegaMan 3 hack.

ASM Features: Even though I know nothing about it yet but I done most of the ASMing only for SMB1. Remember, it's only the IDEA like it's said.

Life decreasing in water
Since Marisa is human her life decreases slowly while she's in the water in most water stages.

Music Features.
Replacing Rush Marine with Item 3.
Replacing 3 Megamans clone with 1 Alice. Each time you switch the weapon, the Megaman 2 boss (Doc Man) will use the weakness against you.
Replacing Torandoes with Beams like in Quickman level.
Replacing the first wily boss with the Wall Face Boss from Megaman X.
Have SRAMS in MegaMan3. Also replaces the Password option with Continue.
Have Break Man as Alice.
Make Break Man shoot wily beams instead of regular blaster.
Have all Doc Mans as Alice.
Have ProtoMan as ProtoGirl.

I'll begin in 2008. And it's because MegaFLEX only works with Windows XP.

Y'know, that kinda reminds me: Why is it that no one has bothered hacking the SNES MM/X games? The only one that I know of was one that replaced the US names with the Japanese ones in Megaman 7.

There's some SERIOUS hacking potential in those games. There was a guy who took the PC MMX3 and made it so Zero was the main character, with a black suit. I'm sure that could be done in the SNES version (though, I imagine it'd be pretty hard, and would require a considerable amount of ASM hacking).

It's interesting, everyone hacks the NES, but people should really check out the Master System, it's from the same generation but can do more, and despite what everyone thinks, there ARE some great games on it too, they just aren't well known.

I remember Bio did try to hack MegaMan X. But I wonder what happened?

I was recently presented with an idea recently by an older friend of mine, one that I think could be interesting. It would be a super-hard hack of Super Metroid. No serious level changes, in fact, no changes to the majority of the game. Except that our hero is not our well known hero.

I work at Wal*Mart now, and yesterday two guys were talking about Halo 3 and Metroid Prime 3, and they were discussing how neither could do one another's missions, when one turned to the other and said that Samus could totally complete Halo and Halo Two. The Chief, on the other hand, could never complete any Metroid game. And this gave me an interesting idea.

What if someone took out all of Samus' abilities that the Chief can not preform, with some minor creative license to make the game completable. Like, make the morphball stuff possible, but require missiles instead, where you have to blow several holes in the wall. His jump speed could be the same as Samus', but no high jump shoes. Take out Morphball and Bombs/super bombs and just make Missiles and Super Missiles (Ala... say... grenades and plasmas), and then make all the weapons something more akin to like plasma weaponry. For instance, make it like SM:R where only one thing can be equipped at a time, and make it like Spazer could be Needles, this Phase... one... could be plasma pistol, the Ice could be Rifle...

I could do this, making the levels, I would just need a little bit of nudging as to the coding for her jumps and how to alter that. So, essentially... how would one remove spinning jumps or wall jumps?

Maybe I will. ^_~

On a serious thought, I was considering looking at translating Rockman X. Other than renaming the bosses, is there any reason I should do so? If there aren't many translation differences, I won't bother. I might just look into hacking the US game. It'd be fun.

Probably posted already, and definitley not an original idea bbuuuuttt.

Legend of Zelda Links Awakening was the first Zelda I ever played, and to this day it's still my favorite (Gasp!).

Possible to make it with Hyrule Magic?
