Why isn't there a MK1SNES blood spray hack?
« on: June 05, 2016, 12:29:48 am »
I know on pirate sites there is a hack that adds blood to the EU version, but we need one for the US version. Also, there is a blood game genie code but it leaves out one of the palettes from the blood sprays and results in a mixture of red and grey blood.

I tried what I just learned on how to find SNES palettes but it didn't work with this game. Who wants to make this simple hack and add another hack to their belt?

I don't mean blood splatters, Just change the grey stuff red. Theres already game genie codes to do it partially.

I just made it all one shade to test that I had the right palette.



The palette color order is actually stored differently in the ROM than how it gets stored in VRAM, but is still easily changed.
For the record, the 8 colors that need changed are at 0x1C18 - 0x1C27.

Cools, you should make a patch and submit it to the site.

Yep, I can do that. I'll add some shading to the blood first of course.

It appears that only 6 colors needed changed, rather than 8 as I previously thought.
Altered Colors:
0x1C18 - 0x1C21 (color #1-5)
0x1C26 - 0x1C27 (color #6)


GET OVER HERE!


I just submitted the hack, so hopefully it gets approved shortly.

Nice, thanks for fixing something that should have been done years ago (and never should have been a problem in the first place).

Now porting the turbo ninja hack would be the next best thing for the snes version.

If I remember correctly, that code has problems. It was incorperated in a blood/turbo hack before. Unless someone can fix those problems it's best not patched. Besides, the controls would still be slow.

If you submitted that gif you should redo it. You must have took out too many frames cause it moves too fast to tell that there's blood in it. Or you could try slowing it down too. Probably woudln't drastically change the file size either.

No, I just submitted 3 still shots showing off the blood. As for that gif, GifCam screwed up the framespeed and I was too lazy to fix it.

See that jobless_floppy, all you need is Gifcam and you'll have MK Turbo speed.

Ok, tried the hack and it works great. I wrote up a short review too. Thanks for making this hack!
