All the patching information for this title is right here on on our site's entry...

Nope, no plans for anything like that. We have no interest in material targeting specific emulators. That stuff has no meaning outside of said specific emulator and lives and dies with it. Software archived here should be targeted at console platforms.

We could add such a thing to the FAQ if someone writes something in the form of a question and an answer that we can put there.

But how would people know what games are good and what games are crappy?

There was no online back in 1992. If you didn't pay for a magazine subscription, you'd have no idea at all if newly released games were any good. Even if you did have some magazines, you'd still ended up buying a number of bad games that you'd regret buying later. I know I did. It definitely was not like the world of today where you could watch gameplay footage, read hundreds of reviews, play demos, etc.



fellowroot:

This piece of hardware was released in 1992, AFTER the SNES. It's of no surprise to me that it would fail. It came too little, too late.

Wouldn't it clearly be the clean ROM hash that is wrong? Your patched ROM hash matches the hash of the ROM obtained from the author's page, right? You can't have used a wrong ROM and come out with a matched patched hash. Therefore, the ROM you used to patch is the correct ROM and your before patch is correct.

Someone should design a cool RHDN T-shirt. That would be neat. :) I have no artistic skill whatsoever myself.

I.S.T., I don't see any transaction record for you from last year. PM me any recollection or details you may have.

I think it's a very poor approach to use graphics packs as a basis for any translation work. It's basically an emulator specific hack. It won't run on hardware. It won't run on any emulators that don't support graphics packs. Quite frankly, it's deprecated for those that do support graphics packs now that proper decompression on the SPC7110 was achieved several years back. It's just dooming your work to obscurity right from the very start. It's doing a disservice to any group that even consider picking this up. Couple that with the level of hacking work and it's unlikely anyone will find this very useful to do anything with.

I say this to encourage you to up your ante and provide something much more enticing if you really want to help other groups succeed.

How was ROM hacking acknowledged? It's just a game with a built in level editor. That's been done many times before entirely unrelated to ROM hacking.

Well, it's time to pay the bill again. I didn't do it early enough last year, so this year we've got ample time. $215.62 due July 9th. Anybody interested in contributing to the server bill please PM me. As always, we take this opportunity to acknowledge our hall of supporting heroes for keeping the site ad free and going strong! :woot!: :)

I played up to world 5 the other day. Nice work! I appreciate the level design (even if many were taken from previous mario games). I played entirely without save states. :) The new stuff seamlessly blends with the old, and the difficulty balance is good. The boss battles were creative and challenging, but still able to be overcome. It was a fun time! It's really a cut above most ROM hacks both technically and game design wise. I can tell you put much time and effort into it and it was a labor of love. The secrets and special worlds were also a nice plus. Cookie for you!  :cookie:

Yes, the 'Features' boxes were primarily for tech demos and tests with source code. The idea would be you could filter entries with source code of interest to learn how to do sound, graphics, controllers, add-on hardware etc. Games would generally have all but Addons. It's probably not going to end up being all that useful. Blame Neil! :P

Think Amazon style reviews here. Reviews can be as short or as long as you'd like so long they contain some supportive reasoning for your stated opinion. We have many 'comment' or forum post length reviews on the site. In fact, we have more of those than anything else. Anything less would be pretty worthless. Do you really want such such feedback as simply 'This is good.' or 'This is crappy.' with absolutely no other text?

All extensions present should be related to the file type is all. We use a whitelist on all extension parts. If you happen to have a valid multi extension type that doesn't pass (and it is desirable to allow that type on the site), we'd have to add it.

Evan from SNES Central has given the OK to add items from his homebrew section to RHDN. I like to see that kind of stuff, but I'm a community historian of sorts. :laugh: So, if anybody has some time and deems it worthy, have at it.

94
No problem. Just click the image from the viewer for the native resolution version. Best of both worlds. ;)

Dwedit, Emulators aren't the kind of homebrew people wanted to see here.

Mauron, public maintenance access should be fixed now. :)

You don't... You can use whatever plugin or extension you'd like to handle media in your browser. It's just a .wav file. :P

We do fetch the actual extension. In fact, we actually check all extension parts. Something like abcdef.tar.gz is perfectly acceptable for instance. A naming convention such as yours was deemed discouraged long ago and has never been allowed here.

The FF6 cart is mapped via Mode 21 (traditional HiROM) and cannot be expanded beyond 4M. Banks $40-$7D actually mirror banks $C0-$FF.

You must change the cart mapping to something else. How you go about that depends on what you expect it to run on (certain emulators, flashcarts, real carts etc). I would indeed take a look at the hack you have and see what it has done for starters. If it already works on common emulators, it's probably just mimicking the Tales of Phantasia map or something like that. Take a look at the internal header.

EDIT: You're right Revenant, post corrected. Thanks. :)

Did you try listening to the letters? That's usually very simple, and is here.

What's even worse is companies pay people to spam forums too, which defeats most mechanisms. I'm not sure if any target here, but I have seen some very crafty questions specific to our site defeated here in the past. I have a hard time imagining a bot was able to do it.

General Discussion / Re: RPG Maker Humble Bundle
« on: May 31, 2014, 08:51:03 pm »
"To the Moon" is just a bunch of NPCs walking around talking to each other. There is no game mechanic.

It's a point and click adventure game. Perhaps you've never heard of Sierra, LucasArts, or the golden age of point and click adventure games. Those types of games are based on exploration, inventory, clues, and puzzle solving for their gameplay mechanics. Some of them are fantastic, mainly because they focus on heavy storytelling, atmosphere, and presentation. They're a different breed of game. I think you are generalizing way too much here.

I'm typically one of the first people to poo-poo on RPGMaker due to the cookie cutter nature and high crap to quality ratio (which is also a problem for ROM Hacks). However, there are probably some notable outings if you look hard enough. For those of you that think they all suck and stories are always generic and recycled, what do you think of this one?

To The Moon

I'd have to say the story is not generic or recycled on this one. If you think it is, I'd love to hear what other games have this theme because it caught my interest. I can't say anything on the dialog quality or gameplay though as I haven't played it.
