ROM Hacking Discussion / N-64 game hacks to invert the camera
« on: September 14, 2019, 04:05:57 pm »
I was playing majora's mask for basically the first time the other day and I can't get over the fact that the camera is inverted. I'm sure it would be pretty simple to hack the game and change the camera to normal. Up is Up and down is down. it currently is up is down and down is up. this is because 3D was new and nobody knew what scheme to use for the camera. Anyway thanks.

I recently played The Brainies for SNES and while I liked the game there are two things that I will need to do an order for me to continue playing it.

1) Give the player infinite time

2) Give the player infinite lives

In my opinion the game would be really fun if these two were implemented so I'm wanting to make a hack or game genie codes that allow this. Now I know that there is this one version of SNES9x called Giegers version were you can look at the active ram of the game and then play around with hex values and such. But I don't know how to convert that information to actually making the hack or game genie codes.

I know that you can just freeze in game ram hex values until you find the locations of the time and lives. Once there then you can then type in new values until you get the desired result.

If anyone can help guide me through the process then that would be great. Thanks.

Oh, and I already checked to see if these cheats already exist and I as far as I know they don't.

[edit]

Just found out that 7E0910 is the ram address where the time is stored.

Level IV seems to have a bug in the room one screen above the bottom left corner of the map. Even if you kill all the enemies besides the hand and try to push all the blocks in the room, the chest never spawns.

Could you post a screenshot?

Is there supposed to be an extra key somewhere in Phony Substation? I'm looking around for a key to get passed one of the locked key doors, and so far, no bueno.

To help you find chests you need to find the compass. Once you have the compass it will make a chime sound each time you enter a dungeon room if there is a chest in the room. Note that sometimes chests are hidden and to make chests appear you may need to defeat all of the enemies in a particular room.

There are a few editing programs for this game. That's the first place to start for sure. MAKE and epicedit are the ones I'm most familiar with.

Just some more info.

This is for Seph's Zelda 3 hack, Conkers High Rule Tail. he wants to split the adventure into 3 separate roms. Beginning story, main story and ending story. I suggested for him to just put everything into 1 rom and that's it, but he doesn't want to. I suggested that it might not be the best idea since people may get confused on which one to play and which order to play them in.

Anyway, I made this thread to see what others think and to see if other people think its a good idea or not.

I am involved in a rom hacking project and there is an idea to split the adventure of the course of 3 separate roms. A part 1,2 and 3 so to speak. My question to you guys is; which would you rather play, a game which needs 3 different roms to tell the story that you have to swap from one to anther while you are progressing or would you rather have just 1 rom with the story in it even if you had to cut some things out of the game  to make everything fit?

Let me know, thanks.

Very cool. Just to let you know, I plan on doing a hack on every game which has a legitimate editor programmed for it such as yours. Awesome work!

That's it, I am personally going to reverse engineer this hack for play on original hardware myself.

*sends Puzzledude a PM*

Title reads: Please tell me how to reverse engineer this hack

The only reason why I'm supporting Puzzledude on this issue is because I want to gain his trust so that one day he will send me a copy of the IQ test hack that is compatible with real hardware so that I can then make repros of my own and sell those.

If you are not happy with a repro maker making your hack then why not send them a private message asking for them not to use your work? But see, its all about demand and supply.

There are people out there who really enjoy playing rom hacks on an original snes cart so thats why repro makers make the carts. People are simply willing to pay for it.

The best thing you can do if you enjoy hacks on original hardware is just get an SD2SNES. This is what I did and it was a great decision. But then again you can't really collect hacked games if they are on a SD card if you really want to display them on your shelf.

Just tell the repro makers that you only want the game being played on a flash cart and that it is not to be sold. Hopefully there are cart makers out there who would respect these wishes.

In my opinion another option is just to sell the game yourself.

If you made a hack then make up a bunch of carts and just sell the game yourself and beat the repro makers to the punch. After you have made a respectable amount of money off of it and because you can take pre-orders and get the game out before the repro makers even have a chance then you can make the best of this situation.

Do it like this:

- Don't release your game for download yet
- Tell everyone you are making a hack
- Tell everyone that you are selling your hack
- Take preorders, say 200 people want a cart
- Make the carts your self with your hack
- Mail them all out at once
- At least you got something for your hard work by getting some money

Only after the game has been mailed out could someone rip the rom from the physical game and then host it online. For example say one of your customers was a repro makers and wanted to sell your game. So what if they put the rom online, you have already earned your initial money so at this point you just then post it online for free.

Or maybe host it for download on your own personal website and ask for donations when they download the patch.

And who really cares about these legal issues anyway? Here is a short story from me.

When I was young I got an NES with some games. Then I got an SNES with some games. Then I got an N64 with some games. Then I got a GBA with some games. These were all purchased from the stores as new items, not second hand. I and my parents have given Nintendo lots of money over many years and I personally feel as if its a slap in the face to a consumer who all they want to do is make a zelda snes hack and release it on it internet.

You know, Nintendo isn't perfect either. What about Shaq-Fu snes and Super-Man 64? Those games were sold by Nintendo and were so bad that they basically ripped off anyone who bought them. Nintendo Seal of Quality? That seal means nothing other than "give us your money now".

So selling millions of copies of crap games to people is legal yet if a person makes a modification to one of them its illegal? What if I hacked Super-Man 64 an order to make it better and to actually make it a good game? Is that illegal?

Nintendo should realize that these old games are nothing more than abandon ware and that they should personally offer these games on their download stores for FREE just as a courtesy.

Knock knock Nintendo Donkey Kong isn't the most popular game anymore like it was back in 1981. Dumba$$ company.

The life of a Repro-maker:

- New Zelda IQ hack on the market, but can't use it $0.00

- Hires a programmer to enable using the game on a real cart $300

- Orders parts and buys old Super Nintendo carts for the new games $500

- Making money off of another persons hard work... priceless!

I watched the candy youtube video. The game looks amazing. The textures and 3d polygon objects look great. The only thing I can gripe about is the level design. It seems as if some of those jumps are just a little too hard to make. For example those spoons on the cake where you have to climb up them. One wrong move and your are dead. It would be great if there were just something to catch your fall or something.

I say just hit them harder than ever. Create a rom hacking company which makes badass rom hacks of Nintendos IP's. People will LOVE the new romhacks and support the work. Nintendo will shut down the rom hacking company thus hurting lots of fans and hurting their own image. People then hate Nintendo and Nintendo goes out of business because no one will support them anymore.

ROM Hacking Discussion / Re: Puzzledude's seminar on romhacking

It's a tad of an overstatement, true. But endless flurries of blind praise really do hinder progress, and anyone that's pursued or taught higher education in any creative field will likely agree that breaking students of that habit and training them to both give and receive criticism is one of the largest hurdles an instructor must face.

Likewise, sitting in on a mid-level critique is a far better way to assess the quality of an a program than by viewing the output of its students.

The point is that criticism, along with learning how to handle even the worst of it, is essential for progress.

I think you give praise when praise is due. If something is just freaking awesome then its okay to say that. On the other hand, if something stinks then tell them it sticks, but also tell them how to make it better so it doesnt stink. Lastly, if you say something is good out of kindness when it really stinks then you are doing the artist/author a disservice because you giving them a false impression that their work is good when it really isnt.

I personally would like to say that if you do give positive praise for some things then it might excite the person and really give the person hope and then they strive to become super super great at what they do.

Its actually kind of interesting. Sometimes positive praise can make a person better or negative praise too, but both of these can also make a person worse. It just depends on the type of person and their personality.
