Wario Land 3 LUA-hack
« on: January 04, 2020, 04:44:19 am »
This (solo) project is going on since start 2019. I'm using the lua scripting feature of VBA re-recording to modify the game in real time. Is this romhacking ? No : excepting the use of Drenn's level editor, this is 0% romhacking (deal with it romhacking.net 8) ). But you could say it's ramhacking.

Well,now that I've injected some ASM code into the ROM, yes, it IS romhacking. Not much, but enough to lend me new powers ...

New gameplay mechanics are already inserted (related to enemies, tiles, wario forms, etc). The game progression/events/cutscenes will be completely different.

View the videos below to understand a bit more the project and its advancement.

In order :

https://youtu.be/R5mPvP9ANkA [1] Introduction, and fiddling with treasure collection

https://youtu.be/GYJGHMQobAI [2] Slight edit on burnt Wario, and a new minigame

https://youtu.be/dy8YsCyZugg [3] New block(s), vampire wario edit, enhanced warp system, etc

https://youtu.be/oaDCqX2z52M [4] New enemy, NPC talking and a special inlevel event

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zg2J41d_Bac  Wario Land 3 but you beat birds while riding an owl

There are also some shorter videos on my channel just showing one specific edit.

Special shout-out to the warioforums.com buddies.  :beer:

Amazing! Wish there was a way to play this stuff on real hardware but it's still very impressive work

Thank you. I know it would be cool to make it possible, but this script is the only way for me to modify the game (actual romhacking is too much for me sadly).


Btw I did some progress, so here's a new (shorter) video : https://youtu.be/OHZ5cFhoads

Already said it on Wario Forums, but I'll say it again here too; this hack looks really impressive, and I love all the custom level gimmicks and new mechanics you've added into it with LUA scripting.

Definitely agree with PZT that it'd be even better if you could somehow play it on real hardware though.

4th video, presenting a completely new enemy I've inserted in the game, talking NPCs and events linked to them, with of course a new level to show its potential.

Have fun !  ;)

As I said on YouTube, this is super impressive. Adding a new enemy into the game like this is insane, as is getting a working NPC system working as well.

Kudos. This hack looks like it's gonna be amazing when it's done!

 :beer: This is just the beginning CM30 : take a beer and brace yourself, as in the next years you're gonna see much more weird stuff. For example : I thought about an arcade shooting section with the owl for one treasure. Not for now, but it's still there in a corner of my brain.

Not much of a fan towards LUA hacks as they cannot be played on actual software.

Nice job though on adding new stuff though  :thumbsup:

Worked on something wild for several months, and it's completed.

I had to do some romhacking to help me out, so this hack isn't 100% LUA based anymore.

This is seriously impressive Blanchon! The fact you've managed to implement a shoot em up style section in Wario Land 3 is just insane, especially given its got unique enemies, a boss, animations, etc.

Thanks, it was super rough to design, i'm glad you enjoy the looks of it. I'm definitely going to do easier stuff next months, cause that burned my brain lol. Though I learned a bunch of things while programming it, so this will definitely help me getting faster results in the future.
