In MDbtroid, what do they mean by "Bigger Kraid and Ridley?" Do they mean Screen Height big or something? If so, count me in.

I'ma play it.

EDIT : And I played it, and the running animation on the suited sprite doesn't look feminine enough to be Samus. She runs like the guy from Gears of War...

Eh...good, but not great.

Bear in mind, though, that the fact that she's female was supposed to be a surprise.

Also, I fought Kraid, and the only thing really "Bigger" was the fact it had a tail. I was hoping for the big Kraid.

Is the Donkey Kong hack included in this update actually for NES? The accompanying text mentions the 2010 release; wouldn't that make it a Wii title?

I tried patching DK:PE but then, I didn't thought about the game has a 2010 NES version...

EDIT: Oh! There's this SMB: Peach Edition now. I hope its not... 2010 NES version too!  ::)

So, the Donkey Kong patch does not work on the NES ROM? The only information I have is CRC32 - f6db268c.

I actually approved that one because I thought it patched the standard NES ROM with changes from the 2010 virtual console NES ROM and Pauline or something to that effect. I don't know anything about 2010 donkey kong or this hack other than a brief search I did that came up with some lackluster articles.

If it's just a patch for a Wii exclusive NES ROM, then it should be removed. I suppose it could be resubmitted as a Wii hack.

SMB: Peach Edition should be for 'Super Mario Bros. (JU) (PRG0) [!].nes', so that should be OK I think.

The 2010 wii version of DK is a NES rom. It might not be easy to find right now, but it's been ripped. I'm sure I can't say where I got it cause I'll get a warn level. I tested the hack out myself and it works.

Thanks for the info, MathUser. I'll see what I can dig up.

The factory level and the detail of Donkey Kong grabbing Pauline and climbing the ladder after clearing a stage doesn't exist in the standard NES version. It does lack the opening scene and title screen of the arcade version..

By making a patch that converts the widely available DK rom into the 2010 ROM could be mis-representative of what the hacker actually did to the game. If a patch were required to be submited that did that, then people would be thinking the hacker added a new level to the game, which he didn't. The ROM isn't so hard to find if you use the right words on Google. Here's what I used and found the ROM in one of the first results:

donkey kong 2010 EU rom

Edit: Submitted a patch to change standard DK PRG1 ROM's into the 2010 ROM's for those that have trouble finding the 2010 ROM and don't read the forum. It's on the hack page now.

So, what do you guys want me to do with this entry (http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/1225/) then?

Just because a ROM is rare doesn't mean hacks shouldn't be submitted for it. The ROM may become more common over time. The DK 2010 ROM works fine in any NES emulator so there's no need to resubmit it as a Wii hack. Also, if you didn't read my edit, I submitted a patch to change the standard PRG1 ROM into the 2010 ROM. It is already on the site.

Seems legitimate, it should stay where its at.  With MathUser2929 adding the conversion patch to this makes even more the reason to keep it on.

I found the game and I can confirm that the patch works & the game works on FCEUX! Its odd that the xdelta patcher doesn't display the xdelta3 file, I have to set the drop-down to All Files just to apply it.  :D

It's kinda cool to have the vanilla 2010 rom, frankly

Okay. Glad it's all cleared up. :)
