Gaming Discussion / Taking Things Away In Hacks
« on: May 15, 2018, 01:34:52 pm »
I've seen a lot of so called hard-type hacks, and most have the same theme - take some important item away. My questions is, why do hackers feel that's the best solution to make a game harder is to take something important away?

Personal Projects / Zelda II - The Triforce Of Courage

Zelda II - The Triforce Of Courage

After months and months and months of on and off grinding at it, my hack is officially complete
which I call The Triforce Of Courage. Here's what you can look forward to in this hack.

The best from ShadowOne333 & Njosro hacks which include the following:
Manual save with 1st controller
Manual save no longer count towards death counter
Can continue after Game Over or Manual Save from palace
Life Meter HUD now displays hearts
No longer lose experience from enemies

The hack also uses the awesome sprites from Revility's Rev Edition hack.

Most enemies have more HP, but as a plus, they give out more experience points.
It cost more to level up, but as a bonus, your sword is ever stronger and your magic
costs less at level 8.

Bosses have more HP and give more experience in this game.

You start the game with the Downward Thrust

Once you have the spells, Shield, Reflect, and Fire are combined into 1 spell

Overworld has changed quite a bit. Palace maps are the same, but rooms have changed.
There are a number of shortcuts including the Great Palace.

As for a hint: With grinding and the right items and patience, it's possible to have all 8
MAGIC & LIFE containers as well as all 8 spells before you beat the 1st palace. It's
hard but possible.

This is my first hack, so I hope I'm posting this in the correct way. Here's the link to download it.

ROM Hacking Discussion / Zelda 2 hack - Help needed
« on: October 19, 2017, 01:23:33 am »
I had scrapped my initial project and started again from scratch, since my last one kept developing errors. This one was going smooth until the very end. My world map is done, text, all stages, palaces, everything is just about done.... except for 1 problem. Once you leave the opening temple, the game freezes. I'm not good with hex editors, so I can use some help in fixing this.

Also, I tried gfx editing, but trying to change the heading in this game it too complicated for me. I lose patience with it, so if someone can create a new heading for me, that would be greatly appreciated. I wanted to change the heading from "The Adventure Of Link" to "The Triforce Of Courage". I would prefer to do something like the pic below, but I know that's not possible.

ROM Hacking Discussion / My Zelda 2 Hack

My overworld, level designs, etc are all complete, but I run into 1 big problem.... The enemies of the Great Palace. They all appear as shadows that takes several uses of the Thunder Magic to defeat, and the Thunderbird can't be defeated without infinite magic and constantly using Thunder magic, and once he is defeated, the game does not advance to Dark Link. I could really use some advice to fix. Once I solve these mysteries, my hack will be complete.
