ROM Hacks: The Simplified Hacks Just Keep Coming!
« on: November 14, 2014, 10:49:23 pm »

Update By: Megafield64

Mega Man IV Simplified is finally here and it's the best Simplified hack yet!  This hack provides players with more firepower (each weapon only uses 1 bar of energy) along with more weapon strength (every boss falls far more easily to the weapons) and much, much more!

For more details, please check the RHDN Project Page and give it a download:  http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/2219/

Also be sure to give these other great hacks a whirl.

Yea, if you want simplified, why make the bosses immune to any weapon?

Looks more like an advertisement than a rom hack.

Haha, I was going saying the exact same thing, but I refrained.

I like the palette changes to SMB Reved Up, but I've no need of a ramped-up difficulty.

If you have a couple hours to throw around sometime, could you perhaps do a simple palette hack of SMB?

I tried once, but it didn't turn out so well.

Simple palette hacks won't be accepted here though.

I have a simple solution to that Spooniest,  I could update the zip file of Super Mario Bros reed up with a separate patch with just the palette change without the level edit.  Unfortunately I won't have a chance to work on these updates till Monday.  Have a heavy schedule with work and family till then.

Take your time. If it's not till next year I won't make a peep.

Thanks for thinking of me!

It's no trouble.  I found the time to update both Mega Man IV Simplified and Super Mario Bros. Reved Up!!  All we have to do is way for the submissions to be approved.   :)

That didn't happen to me when I play tested it.  I'll have to take another look.  What emulator are you using?  I play test my games on FCEUX, Virtual NES, and the real NES hardware via the Ever drive N8.  I'll do my best to see what the problem is and fix it.  Sorry for any inconvenience.     :(

I was using Nestopia Plus! v1.4.0.9
I tried three different roms (One from GoodNES 3.14, another from DGemu and finally a rom i had on my PC) but no luck getting past from there  :-\

I'll be able to look into it later tonight and hopefully I can find what's causing you to be unable to finish the level.  Thanks for bringing this bug to my attention.   Have you had any issues with any of my other hacks?

I just playtested that part of 8-4 castle on FCEUX v. 2.2.2, VirtualNES v. .89, and Nestopia v. 1.40 and didn't have any problems accessing the part of the castle after the water area.  I don't understand what's preventing you from finishing the game.   :-\  The original ROM I used was the GoodNES (Super Mario Bros. (W)[!].nes), so I don't see how that could be the issue if you used the patch on the very ROM I created the patch from.  This is very puzzling.   :banghead:

I'm glad that you've been able to play my other hacks without any issue and enjoyed them.   ;D  I just wish I could figure out how to prevent the bug you're experiencing, but I cannot seem to replicate it to solve the issue.  Is it possible you could somehow make a video of you experiencing this glitch or try downloading FCEUX?   I really want to try to find out how to fix this issue.
