[Technical] Need help on some of my hacks.
« on: August 19, 2018, 05:53:34 am »
Hi everyone,

I need help on some of the hacks that me & rainponcho worked on, the problem is the last time he was on here was a year ago, so I can’t get help from him to change & fix these because I don’t have the skills to do these myself.

Here’s what I need help on:

McDonald's Treasure Land Adventure Restoration: Make the title screen more like the Japanese version where they capitalized the "L" for "land" and added a extra text crediting Treasure.
http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/3557/

Minor Fixes for Mortal Kombat II: This will explain what I need help on: http://www.romhacking.net/forum/index.php?topic=25979.0
http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/3478/

Mega Man Zero 2 Restoration: When you go to the screen to equip Forms and EX Skills, it's all buggy looking.
http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/3738/

Mega Man Zero 3 Restoration: A user told me that when you kill Hanumachine (the monkey boss) with the Z-Saber, his sprite glitches out.
http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/3741/

Super Ghouls'n Ghosts Restoration: I want to make the heart that appears on top of Arthur & Princess Prin Prin during the ending to stay big after it's done with its animation, instead of repeating it.
http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/3473/

Streets of Rage 2 Restoration: Is there a way to make the the death screams of both the players & the enemies to play while their still in the air instead of after they hit the ground?
(This hack I did all by myself, I just need to know if this is possible to change.)
http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/2604/

If someone can help me on these, that would be great.

DuckTales Restoration: I want to change the cheeseburger and the Xenomorph looking alien back to their original sprites.
http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/1103/
For this one, do you have a comparison image on what both of them look like at the moment and what they should look like (you want them to look like)?

NVM, I managed to find which images you were talking about.
I managed to restore both the Cross in the coffin for the Transylvania stage, and also the Hamburger instead of the Ice Cream Cone:

All that's left to do is the Xenomorph-like creature, which I haven't tried modifying yet, but if you want to do so, the offset for the fat guy's sprites start at 0x003530 in the rom.
Simply open the ROM in any Tile Editor and you should be able to see his tiles, I recommend Tile Molester if you want to arrange them in a more eye-friendly way.

The cross on the coffin is already restored in my hack.

It also already has the hamburger & the Xenomorph-like creature as well, what I want to do is change them back to the ice cream cone & the fat alien.

Here's a patch to restore the Ice Cream Cone:
https://ufile.io/ghk38

However, for the fat alien, that requires some more fancy stuff, as it seems whoever restored the Xenomorph alien also changed the sprite ASM routine somehow.
I ended up with a garbled mess of sprites moving left and right lol
So yeah, that would require some more work to be put back.

The patch didn't work, it's still a burger.

When I tried changing the sprite myself, the ice cream sprite still had a light blue color in the middle part of it.

I checked out your patch, it worked but it made the top part of Gizmo Duck red again, I changed it to grey in my hack.

Can you see if you can make the patch only restore the two sprites without making it change anything else?

Should recolor Gizmo grey again. Use on top of restoration.

Noticed an unmentioned easter egg? Tail wag when ducking

Good to know that the fat alien was put back in thanks to emerilfryer :)

Also, SCD, one last thing regarding Ducktales that perhaps you would be interested in.
The colors of the fat alien from the animated series had a different color to the one found in the game.

Here's a comparison:


Perhaps you would be interested in flipping over the colors of the alien, so that the Pink is used for his clothing and the aqua color is used for his skin, might resemble the one from the TV show a lot closer.
If you could too, perhaps modifying the palette for it to closer match the one from the show.

@emerilfryer I tried the patch, it still made the top part of Gizmo Duck red again.

@ShadowOne333 Yeah I am going to give the fat alien its accurate colors from the old cartoon.

Here's how I'm going to make him look:

I followed your method and it worked, the top part of Gizmo Duck stayed grey.

Thanks for helping me on this, you're the best.

I submitted the updated patch and it's on this site now.

That's one hack down, six more to go.
