I'd appreciate this if it was a gameplay improvement and/or an uncensor patch only, but I'm really not a big fan of "spoof" hacks that insert swearing and mature humor just for the sake of having swearing and mature humor, sorry... ironically, it does nothing except make the author seem immature and easily-amused.

The NES is limited to four four-color background palettes, out of which one color each must be transparent/a "background" color, and four four-color sprite palettes which have the same limitations, so no, I think this is as good as it's gonna get. One of the perils of porting an SNES game to a console it wasn't designed to be on.

The first game was several orders harder than "typical Nintendo fare", so I doubt very many people will be complaining at all.

Screens look gorgeous as usual, keep it up.

This is just me, but I'd change "Capcom Presents" on the ending screen to "Presented by Capcom".

Just want to say that, while ルチア is an acceptable translation for "Lucia", I probably would have gone with ルシア, which is closer to how the name is pronounced in English.

From the look of things it's the SNES version.

:huh: i hate to ask...So I won't... :o

Bonji are characters from the Siddham alphabet, used to write Sanskrit. That's as much as I know on the subject, though.

It's not as scary as you might have thought it was, but it probably will require tracking down someone who's familiar with the language (if it even means anything at all).

I think that's what's pictured in the upper-right.

Not to mention the octopus named "Soccer".

I guess he'd figure out the way the music is coded and then hack in the LA tracks himself.

I'd love to see a Link's Awakening remake. In my opinion, the Game Boy games don't get nearly as much recognition as they should.


Here's a very quick mock-up of something I've been wanting to do for a while but could never figure out.

Try Imageshack, Photobucket (you'll need an account for those two), imgur, tinypic... there are lots of image-uploading websites. Just pick your favorite!

Editing music isn't easy, even for experienced hackers, and to my (limited) understanding usually requires a lot of screwing around with the hex code until you find the music data and then more screwing around to find out how the music is read by the game.

If you need help learning how to program, you could always ask someone to give you a few pointers - just don't tell them to do all the work themselves, like Danke says.

What are you planning to hack the game into, by the way?

If all else fails use fire ask someone else if they could do it for you.

They're compressed, i.e.  you'll need to figure out which compression method the game uses to store its graphics and then write a program that'll get the graphics out in editable form.

You could also try to figure out how the decompression works as itself and that way you would be able to input your new images through hex editing.

I managed to edit a bit of Yoshi's portrait by fiddling around in VisualBoy Advance's ROM map, if that counts. I'm having no luck finding where it is in the ROM using hex editors, though. Trial and error, maybe?

That helps a little. Some more recognizable graphics are starting to show up, but there's still a few errant lines here and there and since I can only display two colors at once on 1bpp, editing it would be sort of problematic.

I'm new here. I've done a bit of hex editing for a minor Super Mario Kart hack, but other than that I'm pretty much an amateur (I don't quite know how to decompress graphics yet). :3

(This is my first post, so apologies if it's a little rough around the edges. :3)

For a while now I've been planning on hacking Tetris Attack for the Game Boy to turn it into Panel de Pon (since it was a Yoshi game even in Japan and PdP just needs more love in general). While the changes between PdP and TA are pretty extensive, I figured that the easiest thing to start with would be editing the graphics to replace the Yoshi's Island characters with the original game's fairies, so the first thing I do is open the game up in YY-CHR. This is what I see:

All of the game's graphics, bar the "Game Over" text, several other graphics in the same bank, and a handful of others, are compressed. There are two major problems with this:

1. I'm relatively new to the ROM hacking business, so I can't identify the compression method the game uses.

2. To my knowledge, decompressing graphics from non-GBA games requires writing a program from scratch specifically to do so, and I have zero programming experience.

If I could overcome those hurdles, I'd be able to edit the graphics.

Does anyone have any help they could offer? (Do not know how I missed that.)
