Hi everyone,

Three years ago, me and rainponcho released a hack for the SNES port of Turtles In Time that fixes all the text errors in it, you can check it out here: http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/3470/

The reason why I created this help wanted ad is I want to extend the hack to have all the missing defeated boss speeches from the Japanese version, they took them out of the international versions for some odd reason.

That’s why I’m looking for a hex editing expert that can restore them for my hack.

This is what they should say after you defeat them:

Baxter Stockman - “T-TURTLES… NOT WORTH IT!”
Metalhead - “HA… I’VE BEEN MANGLED!”
Ratking - “UH… NOT EVEN THE SEWERS…!”
Slash - “I-I’M HISTORY…!”
Rocksteady - “B-BUT YOU'RE JUST WEAKLINGS!!”
Bebop - “WHAT ARE YOU GUYS?!”
Leatherhead - “I SHOULD’VE GOTTEN OFF AT THE LAST STOP!”
Krang (2nd Fight) - “ARE DEAD!”
Super Shredder - “UWAAAAAA!!!”

I also want to make a optional patch for it that will change some of Krang's sprites to make him look more like his arcade counterpart:

I want to replace his SNES Neon Night Riders sprites with the ones from the arcade version:

The sizes for them were adjusted, thanks to help from kensuyjin33. They should fit into the tiles perfectly.

I moved the Starbase sprites that I want to replace the old ones with in the new post.

That’s why I’m looking for someone that can insert the new sprites over the old ones.

There's utility tools to decompress and recompress the ROMs, so you can edit the sprites, you can get them here:

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

Sorry for reviving one of my old ads, but I still need help on this.

I also discovered that the other Starbase Krang sprites were messed up looking as well.

I edited them and fixed them up to look more like how they're suppose to look, here's the edited sprite sheet:

I need someone to insert these along with the edited Neon Night Rider Krang sprites over the old ones and test them to make sure they function right in the game, they should fit perfectly in the original tiles.
