18. I don't know if it's also virtually possible, but I want someone to expand the ROM size limit of Mother 3 to maximum size level of a normal GBA game. I say this, because from the looks of it, Mother 3 seems like an unhackable game thanks to the size of the translation made by Mato. If this could be expanded, many people would try to port their EarthBound hacks to Mother 3. But I still don't know if it's possible. Hell, I don't know which is the largest GBA game in existence (largest by ROM size, of course).Mother 3 is already the GBA maximum size, 32MB.
If I'm not mistaken, most GBC only games were programmed to display an error message when booting on incompatible hardware (either GB, Super GB or an emulated GB). In addition to that there was the physical impossibility to insert GBC only games in a GB because some plastic thing that prevented to insert the cart in a regular GB.They were only physically impossible to insert on an original Game Boy, not impossible to insert any other variation of the original GB (SGB1/2, Pocket, Lite).
All GB code (after the boot ROM) will start executing at ROM address $0100). Typically that code isThat last line seems to do it. Game "playable" in GB mode with all graphics replaced by a glitchy mess.
DKGB is no exception.
At $0150 is:
cp a,11 ;a holds the value left by the GBC boot ROM, identifying the hardware as GBC.
;this instruction sets a flag in the CPU if a=11 or not
ld a, 23 ;these two instructions swap in ROM bank $23. This is going to be the ROM bank with the error screen.
jp nz,6c47 ;here is where the flag, previously written by the GBC detection check is checked. It will branch to the error screen.
;I'd guess you could nullify the check by writing nop ($00) over the 3 bytes in this instruction (C2 47 6C at address $015A) in the ROM
Ocarina of Time is lame. If you want the real deal, play A Link to the Past on the SNES. And if you want to play a cool N64 game play Castlevania: Legacy of Darkness.That's not the point of the thread.
As a side note is that really how you save in Zelda? How convoluted is that! What if you don't have a second controller!?Certainly it was designed with the original RF Famicom in mind, with the controllers permanently attached.
because, I wanna test that it is playable or something.That's a secret code. I think it lets you just play a single game.
Also, I know that I can active Panel de Pon GB on Poémon Puzzle League.
The megadrive/genesis. I guess because it invokes less of a sense nostalgia in the US and though ROM hacking and homebrew is hardly an English speakers only affair the potential pool of people is not the highest.Graphics compression. In the developing years of the translation scene, that was enough to kill interest. Few knew how to do ASM hacking, and I don't think there was as much development in debugging emulators as NES/SNES.
I'm trying out the game.. does the game have this inherent scrolling issues? I tried it on virtuaNES and FCEUX.That looks like maybe your ROM header has the Mirroring bit set wrong. It should be Vertical.
Weird that this patch never appeared in the front page news, or in Romhacking.net's database of translations.Nobody must've submitted it.
Another thing that I notice its that in these scripts files (they are .bin extension) once some characters are written in the file, they will not appear again in the file, the previous example show some characters like the name "Aikawa - 相川", but for the next following sentences that mention that name, it will not appear although the game show them.Sounds like a fairly common compression technique called LZSS, where reused characters are replaced with a code to reuse the character the second time (which makes since for Japanese text, since a 2-kanji name would be 4 bytes vs. a LZSS code is 2-bytes.
Why does that video have artifacts and no title logo?In the late '90s, the most common SMB ROM circulating was a bad dump/pirate dump with no title. But by 2008... either they downloaded their ROM from some random old Geocities site, or they went to a ROM site with the whole GoodNES set and a downloaded a SMB ROM and it turned out to be that (not knowing to look for the ! tag). Good thing I've seen sites replacing GoodTools with no-intro sets that only have good dumps.
