Need help with a hack.
« on: December 17, 2015, 12:44:55 pm »
Hi, I want to hack a rom, altering some of it.

The rom is a Neo Geo rom, more precisely: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twinkle_Star_Sprites

I want to"

- be able to freely change stats of characters, like attack speed, movement speed, bar load speed, etc.
- be able to alter some mechanics, like changing the special attack to a different button instead of always being triggered by your level 2 load bar.
- change some assets.
- in the PvP mode, to be able to play in more than the basic maps.

I would need someone to get me started, to point me in the right direction. I have a background of programming, so I will learn pretty fast, I believe.

If you can and want to help me, send me a PM.

Thanks.

Jorpho

Thanks for those links, I've read them, but I can't see anything useful to me to be honest.

I only know I have a bunch of files, some of those files are supposed to relate to some functionality, but that's it really.

If I for example want to change how much damage an enemy does, where do I start?.

Does the game have any cheat codes? That might be a starting point, better than nothing. For example, Game Genie codes can give you important ROM addresses if you know how to pick them apart.

That's probably about as much as I can suggest though. My skill set is pretty limited and I'm not a Neo Geo hacker.

The stats I might be able to help with, is there any documentation of what the stats currently are maybe on gamefaqs?

No idea, but you can ask me, I know the game from start to finish.
