This thread is kind of sad; Puzzledude worked very hard on this hack and the most he gets from people is whining about emulation issues. You can tell a lot of hours went into this hack and overall the puzzles are rather minimalistic yet impressively deep.

That title screen looks pretty good! I'm unsure what to think about those lines going across the title text though.

It should be noted that there is a Resident Evil game for the Game Boy Color (two if you count the unreleased prototype that uses the PSX pre-renders). The released one has some pretty good looking graphics which the bootleg steals and butchers.

So you know, Nintendo doesn't care whether or not your hack works on original hardware. Nintendo is opposed to ALL romhacks of their intellectual property, even when they're emulated and not used for commercial gain. You can see this because Nintendo has been targeting YouTube videos of Super Mario World romhacks. SMW romhacks compete with Nintendo's Mario Maker product, so they've developed a policy opposed to romhacks of their IPs.
This is not just limited to romhacks. Nintendo has pulled the plug on fan made projects like Super Mario 64 HD. If you use any of Nintendo IP without their permission, it's illegal.

rule2 from forum rules:This is a paradox then. Since if it is required for the game to work on real hardware (or Not on certain emus only), then it is automaticlly possible to make a repro out of it and sell it, which means that the RHDN would be used as a vehicle to piracy and even money making.
This is only a forum rule and doesn't apply to submissions. If you disagree with me, ask a submission reviewer or a moderator.

EDIT: Besides the fact that the game only runs on a modded emulator, the game seems to run fine and looks well done. I personally enjoy the block puzzles.

The points I am trying to make seem to be flying completely past you.  This appears to be a common theme in this thread in general.
Glad I'm not the only one.

Puzzledude, I respect, and admire the fact that you made an 8mb hack of probably one of the more difficult snes games to hack, but I have to agree 100% with Disch.  Besides, you clearly like puzzles, so here one is, get it under 6mb.
Well you start in the light world and then go to the dark world before going to the meat of the hack; the dungeons. Theoretically, it seems like you can trim some fat off the hack by removing the two. Though it's easier said than done.

By the logic of the scientists, morals are not compatible with science. So if you want to live in heartless world, then sure, go ahead. By the way, that means the rights that God granted you are incompatible with science as well because by their logic there is no reason you should be guaranteed to have them in the first place.

I don't, though, and I am sorry if you don't understand why.

If you want to continue thinking that scientists are infalliable, go ahead. God gave you free will.
Nice scarecrow

I made a Venn diagram.

Yep, science and religion are two non-overlapping concepts.

BTW I am a scientist.


Science and religion are polar opposites that share a similar purpose; to explain why things are the way things are. For example, both platforms focus on how the Earth was created and how the first life upon Earth. Religion focuses more on faith while science focuses on facts. I think religion is a somewhat relevant topic but is definitely more relevant than posting irrelevant JPGs about pigs. Religion also contributes as to why science is not progressing as fast as it should be. Some people claim modifying DNA is doing God's work for example.

Also in 2 days, this topic has 6 pages. Wow just wow.

Furthermore, any technology that is not 100% controllable or predictable by humans will NEVER be put into military applications.  Never ever ever.  Soldiers (even robotic ones) are no good when you don't control them.
Is there a source for this? In a perfect world, these are words to live by, but there's always a .0000000000001 percent chance of degeneration and whatnot. In addition, if a certain technology is the best the military has, they'll use it over nothing, especially in desperate times.

Also what military are you talking about and which era?

Okey dokey. It sounds right to have your own topic for your own project anyway.

EDIT: Another bug I forgot to mention. Apparently for some SPCS (specifically ones ripped with ZSNES I believe) the first row of notes seem cut off. So it some instrument plays the whole time in a column, you won't hear it play in the IT file.

Hey uyjulian. I hope that Lua conversion is going smoothly. I found a bug in your original C version that you might not be aware of. Apparently when compiling the IT file, your program will crash if it has to do more than 240 patterns. Be sure to fix this in the Lua version. I ran into this error when compiling some SPCs from Equinox.

P.S. I changed the topic title to a more relevant one.

Not to my knowledge, no.

apparently Jim Valentino is trying to sue a Repro cart company for attempting to release this Rom on cart and sell it.
Thanks to Pat the NES Punk's podcast, I already know about this and it appears to be a bit of old news. In my honest opinion, repros are scum and it serves them right to be sued. It is disappointing that we might not see the prototype see the light of day...

OK, I just saw this

I don't know of these, and I'm kind of morbidly interested. I mean, how Not-For-Kids could Atari games possibly be?
I believe he's referring to the pornographic games for the system; the infamous one being Custer's Revenger Revenge.

Congratulations to a job well done, lugia2009! This project was on hiatus a bit so I'm glad you pulled through.

The photos was posted on twitter two years ago by a guy named John Ricciardi.

What I found most interesting about it, is that the double-size moon dungeon on that picture suggests that the story told in the Iwata Asks http://iwataasks.nintendo.com/interviews/#/ds/zelda/1/5 how the second quest came about due to Tezuka's mistake of only using half of the available data, may not be the entire story.
Good stuff. I'm actually creating a pre-release article on TCRF.net so this information is valuable to me. I also cited you for that interesting observation; I hope you don't mind. A link (feel free to edit if you have an account if you know what you're doing):


I also have yet to find one more interview, one interview I was looking for you linked in your precious post so thanks! The interview I'm looking for states that the original Legend of Zelda theme was in fact made in one day. This was because the theme Koji Kondo was planning to use was still subject to copyright. Because this fact came upon him late, he had to come up with a tune very quickly. At least that's what the interview says, there is a prototype that has the classic Zelda theme and the dungeons still had a lot of work to be done. I've noticed that you usually can't trust interviews entirely as they are relying on human memory that can be unreliable.
I found the interview!

According to this yahoo answers thread, there's no specific structure for a DAT file. You should probably post the files on here but I don't know if that's against the rules or not so...

Unfortunately, when I search "PSX music rips" and "PSX music ripping tutorials" I just see a bunch of things related to recording the music so you can have them on MP3. There aren't communities that I know of that are dedicated to ripping Playstation music like there are for Genesis music for example. The most complete rip set I could find is on Zophar's Domain (the site claims it's complete but it's full of crap). The rippers leave their contact information in the READMEs so perhaps you could contact them if no one else on this thread responds.
