Preparing to upload the patch.  :beer:

UPDATE: Seems the uploading process doesn't like anything from Dropbox or Photobucket?!  I'm still working on it.

UPDATE 2:  I'm using the "Scratchpad" to get around the upload issue.... now I have to re-do all my screenshots at 256x224... gotta say, what a PITA!

getting excited!!!!!!

go grimlock go! :)

 :woot!: The hack is fully submitted and awaiting moderator approval!  :woot!:

Once approved it'll be up for download!  I still have a few steps to get the download page set up right like adding Optomon and Snarfblam on there but it should otherwise be ready for download once it's up!

Thank you so much for everything.
Really. Really, really.

I've already played it for about an hour. What a fantastic hack. So far I've only found bombs aand hi jump boots. Going to have a lot of fun playing this over the weekend. Excellent job to everyone involved in this hack!

I'm so sorry. There is a glitch that was presented in beta version and still presented in full release. I found it pretty late in beta test and for some reasons i didn't send it to you :banghead: i'm so sorry
Spoiler:
Some times when you use suicide command - your hp can glitch. And you can loose energy tank by doing that. I think you can restore that e-tank by dying, but that pretty annoying

I have to say that, besides fan translations, I have been actually disappointed with 90% of rom hacks I have tried but this one is not one of them, I'm fairly surprised. One of the testers (sorry, I don't remember exactly who) said that it was almost 16bit quality and I thought it to be hyperbole, Im glad I was so incredibly wrong.

Congratulations.

I guess there were some submission issues before. I went ahead and submitted the patch from over on the Metroid Construction site along with the description you used from over there. Everything should be good to go.  :thumbsup:

Now you gotta do a news article once the submission passes!  :beer:

Wow, how does anyone submit anything here!!! I even used the "Scratchpad" to upload my files.  I must have wasted 2 hours trying to submit the patch... and it got dropped off the queue???  :huh:

Edit: The files are still uploaded to the scratch pad so I'm at a total loss here as to why it was dropped....

We'll have a look at that, can you PM me specifics, which area you were in and what not?  Maybe there is a bug in one of the banks.  Also how were you playing, which emulator or flash card etc.

You're not the first person to have some initial trouble with submissions. It's unfortunate, but being sticklers for the rules is the only way to enforce any kind of quality or sanity in the database. Staff can fix certain problems with submissions, but it can be hard enough for us to say on top of clicking the approve button without the extra work.

That said, it's up now!

Announcement:  We will be updating to Version 1.10 today in order to correct a last minute HEX edit that placed an extra Missile tank:

Spoiler:

If you know of a location other than RHDN and Metroid Construction where this game is posted for download please let them know an update is going to be released today.  :thumbsup:

Found a door leading nowhere (in the derelict spaceship) - if that's not intentional I can post a screenshot (I can hack myself into the credits if this turns out to be a bug)  :laugh:

Also - am I supposed to find the space-jump somewhere?
