Oh, the original GB version was just Harvest Moon GB. Not sure how I got that mixed up. Anyway, there's no time limit there.

To reply to some questions on the BASIC part and the level of what I know. The book states BASIC quite a bit in its introduction chapter so it made me believe that there is something else to learn beforehand. Again, I have no clue if this BASIC programming bit was necessary or not to learn. For the level of programming that I know, just extremely simple stuff like changing the hexadecimal points around for the color palettes and that's about it (some sort of YouTube video showed something about it while using FCEUX.)BASIC was everywhere thirty years ago. (The success of Microsoft's BASIC interpreter did much to shape its history, in fact.) But that was then, and few would recommend it nowadays.
That's what it made me think of but it was a different game. I played it around 1997/98 and it looked fairly new at the time. Seemed a little more sophisticated than Lemmings. It kinda seems like the people were sort of pear or potato shaped.Ah, there were so many of those. Baldies, maybe.
I have no idea what that is but it sounds pretty cool to me.Eh, I couldn't really make much sense of it at the time, which was part of the reason I want to play it again, so that I may properly whallop it with my mighty intellect.
Granny's Garden anyone. That witch still haunts my dreams.Got a proper drubbing on PC Gamer, that one. Sounds unpleasant.
Also remember some sort of parrot thing that could talk back anything you typed in, but only saw that once.That's (most likely) a fairly well-known demo included with Sound Blaster cards.
Later on there was another one I think was called Maelstrom that may have been an Asteroids type (so long ago...).Yep, that was one of Ambrosia Software's famous games. For some reason the source was released and it is now widely playable.
I played a truck driving game a lot too but I can't remember the name. You choose your route, could get tickets for speeding and you would even black out and wreck if you went too long without sleeping.Cross Country USA, or Cross Country Canada, depending on where you were.
The only other one not mentioned that I can think of but can't recall the name of was one where you had a bunch of little people (they may have been green, or purple...) and you had to lead them from one place to another, over bridges and things too. I don't remember what else there was to it but I assume they can get killed if you goof up.Not Lemmings?
But... the problem is it doesn't support recompression, and the tools that supposedly do are built for luigi's mansion and don't actually compress my file properly (game crashes when trying to load).Perhaps the differences are not so great. Have you tried decompressing a file and recompressing it without any changes? Does the recompressed file have any kind of similarity with the original? Maybe it's just a matter of a few extra bytes at the start of the file, or something.
The one here on romhacking.net doesn't seem to work.What happens when you try to use it?
EDIT : Why does this [/list] Always comes back after each edit ? Is it a forum bug ? It is quite annoying.It's because you've got
[list][list]at the start of your post.
ZST is a savestate of the ZSNES emulator and is completely specific and emulator based. The savestate of other emus, such as Snes9x, have again their specific savestate file, in this case with the .000 extension.I read once long, long ago (on Zophar.net, to be precise) that they are in fact interchangeable as long as you rename the files correctly, but that might have changed somewhere along the way.
Is it just me, or does it seem like it would be easier to learn to write a program capable of editing the game without constantly destroying it, than it would be to make a complete hack of the game with the existing tools and come out the other side with a functional ROM and your sanity intact?Coding a bug-free, user-friendly program is actually an excruciating exercise in tedium. That's why you find so few of them that aren't commercial products.
Words escape me. There really is no hope for humanity.It's not inconceivable that the answer could be a "Royale with Cheese" or something.
