I spent the last few days learning how to hack GB/C games, for a possible translation of Choro Q GB. Today I finally managed to write the dialogue in 3 lines instead of the original 2:


But now I realize that there's so little VRAM space that this was just a waste of time:


There's 25 tiles available in total. You can use 13 in each line at maximum, so having 3 lines is a bit useless... :-\

I think I could get more space by moving things around in VRAM, but that looks very complicated and this game is probably not worth the effort. :P

You could do what Pokémon Trading Card game did and use a small fixed width font.  It worked well and allowed more letters to be used on screen.

How playable is that? I never played the game (I might whenever it gets released on 3DS here) but I can only imagine that font giving me a headache if I tried to play the game on a real GBC. :P

it's If for SNES. If you want Soul Hackers, go get a 3DS and buy it.

ugly colors incoming

screenshot 1 (Kirby: Triple Deluxe)
screenshot 2 (Kirby: Return to Dream Land)

A few days ago I took advantage of the newly-released 3DS RomFS decryptor and started poking around Triple Deluxe for the hell of it and after a short time I had a mostly functional map viewer. Then I decided to take a look at Return to Dream Land, noticed the formats were very similar, and added extremely hasty support for some of that too.

It's still mostly a Triple Deluxe-oriented utility, as you can probably see, but I guess since it also supports a Wii game I guess maybe it doesn't completely break the rule against stuff for current-gen systems anymore? Oh well. I don't really plan to turn this into a serious project anyway, since I'd like to work on something besides Kirby tools for a change, but...

It looks great! Thanks for everyone's hard work. :)

Working on a hack for Shadow of the ninja (Blue Shadow) NES turning it into a Batman game.




Only a graphic hack so far, original game design already feels pretty close to a nes Batman.
Player sprites are done and feels really good in game, now making lots of custom graphics for the intros/cutscenes (example in screenshot2).

Ha! Nice idea there. It really does fit a Batman setting, come to think of it.
