ROM Hacking Discussion / Re: The BIG list of randomizers!!
« on: March 06, 2018, 05:55:21 pm »
Would it be alright to add https://www.romhacking.net/forum/index.php?topic=25918.0 to the list? There's already a Metroid 1 randomizer on there but it's for items and elevators. I made one that procedurally generates an entirely new map layout.

Personal Projects / Metrandomizer: Metroid 1 Map Randomizer
« on: March 04, 2018, 05:42:12 pm »


I was really impressed by the Zelda 1 Randomizer procedurally generating entire dungeons, so I thought I'd try to make a utility that does the same for the original Metroid. Here's what I came up with.

https://www.romhacking.net/utilities/1437/

Edit: v02 is now released. Here's what's randomized:
  • The entire layouts of Brinstar, Norfair, Ridley, and Kraid
  • To some extent, Tourian
  • All powerup locations

Optional features:
  • Instant item acquisition
  • Randomized palettes
  • Minimal HUD
  • Higher energy damage + better energy drops

Changelog:
Spoiler:
v02c - Fixed two critical world generation issues. Thanks and apologies to snarfblam and MetroidMst
v02b - Incredibly necessary bug fixes
v02 - Completely redid screen selection code to give the player a better, wider variety of map layouts
v01c - Fixed an impassible screen combination in Brinstar. Don't know how I missed this one. Thanks, /vr/
v01b - Fixed a chance Kraid's boss room might not spawn
v01 - Fixed a potential pillar blocking your way in Ridley, slightly improved room variation
v00 - Initial release
