This hack is AMAZING!

Enjoying it so far!
Only things from the original needed stuff I think would greatly benefit this hack are:
    A shortcut for talking (pressing A?)
    Expand inventory size to 12 per character.

And the special items from the GBA version.
But seriously, what was Nintendo thinking when they thought going to a menu to talk to someone was a good idea?

Probably thinking of copying Dragon Quest. ;)
The Famicom version of which even gives the talk command a sub-menu to make you choose the NPC direction from the player.

Just the same as if you either use a bread or eat a bread  :laugh:

Damn, this is some high quality work!
Despite enjoying the sequels I never bothered with the NES original. Now I will.

I feel slightly better about still not having finished the GBA version now.

This is superior, jah?

For anybody that wants to use this patch for their original Mother 1 cartridge on the Retron 5, i've modified the patch to do so:

I'm still reading the description because it's unbelievable how childishly atrocious the grammar on this site is. It goes hand in hand with the muddling thought process behind how people think they should describe their rom hacks.

Yeah...sorry about the grammar GreenBanana. I had typed that news article on my phone and also this isn't my romhack, I linked to the creator's thread in the article

Hey, thanks for helping me out with this! I don't know why my ROM doesn't work on a Retron 5, but this seems very useful nevertheless. Could I please have permission to include this in the game's main download?

I had totally forgotten about the work being done on this hack. Greatly excited to see it's completed. Now if only I can find some time to play through it entirely.  :'(

The game freezes on me when I check the drawers in Ninten's room. It first displays lines of xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx that bleed out of the text window, there's a message about a cave and a mountain and it freezes.

I'm playing on PSP.

Anyone else experienced this?

Edit: actually, it freezes every time I use the "Check" command, not just the drawers.

Re-edit: my bad! I must have been using an old EB0 rom that I had and was probably patched with an old patch, I patched over a clean rom and it's working fine now! Sorry, please ignore! And thanks for this patch!

What are the special items?
I think he was talking about the Easy Ring, which was a fabrication of the Mother 1+2 Translation Patch by Tomato and Reid. There's an alternate version of the patch with a Hard Ring (http://earthboundcentral.com/2013/04/mother-12-translation-hard-ring/).

No disrespect, but those trees look awful, i hope they correct that thing

I noticed even the unused enemies are updated. Is there any way to fight the originally unused enemies?

Ha! I can agree. I've actually gotten a lot of complaints about the trimmed cemetery trees, and I fixed them (http://forum.starmen.net/forum/Community/PKHack/Mother-25th-Anniversary-Edition/2011216) a while ago. I'll go ahead and update that screenshot for v1.1.

Man, please just tell me... there are no Krakens, are there? Every time I think I know where it is, I am never able to find it.

Also, has anyone brought up a part in the game where a girl gives you hints for 1000 coins, but if you accept the game crashes. Has anyone brought that up?

I believe that was just discovered and is being fixed.

So THAT'S the girl in Halloween that crashes the game. Good thing I didn't accept shit haha.
Yeah the autor is already aware of that and he fixed it already.
