2. For both Zelda 2 and The Battle Of Olympus: Make their Fireball and Sword Beam attack larger and more deadly.
Zelda 2 Redux has a hack that increases the range of both the Fire spell and the sword beam.

A hack of Elite Beat Agents for the DS that replaces the licensed songs with royalty free songs and the one from the Mega64 skit video. This came to me after watching the Mega64 skit parodying Elite Beat Agents and wondered if I wanted to hack the game and put the song from that video, and also even put the songs from Moero! Tatakae! Ouendan! into the game as well.

The DS, and later devices you might be playing on, have various pieces of homebrew along these lines.
Custom Ouendan, Osu on the PC and a few others being stuff to search for as a jumping off point. If you are after music/rhythm based games then you have plenty more still in the DS homebrew world.

For the 3ds I never played it but osu!3DS looks like it might be close to what you are after.

I'll chip in for a hack idea, how's about using these MM2 sprites of the AVGN and throw 'em into Darkwing Duck with all new fresh levels. It'd be hilarious! :D :laugh:

I'm stuck at who'd replace Launchpad. :huh:

Hack in the Banjo Man from the box art of 'Phalanx' to replace the ship. Maybe he can ride on a rocket or something?

I think Mike Matei might be a good replacement for him.

I've been playing Ocarina of Time Redux and it's pretty great. I'm sure the same could be done for Master Quest and honestly I'd be happy with exactly that, but I think it would be even better if it was possible to add double damage from the 3DS remake as well... and possibly even mirroring the map, but I imagine that would take a lot of work and would muck up some cutscenes or something.
Somebody alert me when a user friendly BS Zelda hacking tool is made. I will give my soul to work on a faithful SNES remake of Zelda 1.

Touhou Youyoumu ~ Perfect Cherry Blossom, replace the in-game version of Necrofantasia with the one from Magical Astronomy.

Zelda 2 Redux has a hack that increases the range of both the Fire spell and the sword beam.

@ShadowOne - I have extended the range as well in the Zelda 2 hack I'm working on. I'd like to see something larger with a bigger hit radius like a hadouken especially the fire spell. I'd like to see the same extended to The Battle Of Olympus.

You're in for a treat, my friend.
I've been cooking up something of that vein, and it's about to bevready. Be on the lookout for it :^}

Pending that if having enemies pack twice the punch can't you make a cheat to set max health to half (assuming you don't just not pick up heart pieces). A few other hacks have done similar things over the years (usually more forcing 3 heart/5 heart* runs but same principle)

*I don't recall offhand what this one does but do note that you can have quarter hearts at points so 5 hearts is more likely to be 20 decimal in numbers somewhere in there.

Here's another hack idea, put Mario, Luigi, Wario & Waluigi in New Ghost busters II. I think it'd be a good fit.  :laugh: :D

I believe that it should be interesting the following hacks:

1 - Lost Vikings (SNES) -> 3 players mode
2 - Lost Vikings 2 (SNES) -> 3 players mode
3 - Animaniacs (SNES) - 3 players mode
4 - Herc's Adventures (PS1) - 3 players mode


C ya,
Goro.

Yes, that would be amazing to have co-op with all three Warners to be playable in the SNES Animaniacs game

That's literally amazing, keep up the good work! If you could make every character distinct as well, that would be perfect.  :laugh:

Now that's what's up! :thumbsup:

Looking forward to playing this when it's done, playing with the Nintendo characters makes this game more interesting to me.  :beer:  :cookie:

EDIT: I'm with Supergamerguy, If you could make every character distinct, that would be pretty bad ass. :D

I think he should be able to theoretically (I haven't tried it myself so I dont reallllllly know), but looking at gameplay, it seems like every sprite is unique to begin with so it should be possible.........
