I've been playing Blaster Master: Enemy Below and Blaster Master: Blasting Again and had some ideas for hacks.
Enemy Below:
  • Just like the hack Metafight Alpha, have a hack that changes sprites to match Blaster Master Zero style.
  • Decrease Blaster/Beam projectile limit for both Jason and Sophia or...
  • Make Jason and Sophia's beams much faster to allow extra dakka.
  • Improve Jason's gun levels since the later one really sucks compared to the NES ones.
  • Improve camera to have it "view ahead based on the direction you are facing and allow you to "look down" as Sophia to avoid blind drops.
  • One thing both NES and GBC suffers of: NO MAPS! We could use them...
  • Oh, and one terrible thing that needs fix: the lack of diagonal movement.

Blasting Again:
  • Swap Turn and Dodge between Dpad left/right and L1/R1.
  • Smooth up the turning accelertation to make it easier to aim.

It was just an idea. Why, was somebody wanting to make it?

Hey googie, pm me when you get a chance. I've been meaning to get back to you. Sorry it has taken so long.

I would love to see a Cobra Kai hack of Karate Kid, maybe with Johnny as the main character and with Allie and Mr Miyagi playable. I'm just trying to figure out how it would go as far as stages and enemies.

EDIT

moved the sprites to the next page.

exclusive to the Bandai WonderSwan Color, based on the 2 titles of Nintendo / NES 8-Bits.

Simple NES Kirby's Adventure Controls Patch

Improve how Kirby is controlled by mapping the first Kirby float to the A button instead of pressing Up on the d-pad. Controlling Kirby would be much better if pressing Up on the d-pad only moved Kirby up ladders and not make him use the float move.

Hey guys, I noticed that gender-swapping hacks are popular these days.
Well, there is a game that really could use one.
Ninja Princess was an old arcade game by Sega.

But for some reason when they ported it to the Sega Master System as The Ninja, they changed the female protagonist into a male one. It would be cool to see the female protagonist Kurumi be restored.

would anyone be interested in making a 2 player hack of karate kid? i think it would be cool to have different characters selectable like: Johnny, Miyagi, Chozen, Kumiko and it would be great to play 2P simultaneous

How about a hack of the original NES River City Ransom with the River City Girls as the protagonists? I wouldn't mind a game hack of that one day.

That'd be pretty cool to play, I'd play it for sure. :D

Could somebody hack TMNT III The manhatten project, to replace the throw attack by pressing up + B, and replace it with the jump slash attack from TMNT II The Arcade? Then Nintendo versions.
I have always been annoyed by doing that stupid throw attack!
If someone does this, thank you so much!

A Super Mario Advance 4 level editor, with all the items added in e-reader levels, this would be on some parts more complete than Mario Maker!

The GoonDocks site has a patch for the European Mario Bros. "Classic" release that adds high-score saving and NTSC support!

However, to enable NTSC you need to hold down the B-button on boot. Which I assume works on an actual console, but I am not able to pull this off with an emulator (using OpenEmu on Mac).

Would someone please be able to patch this so that it is NTSC by default?

Updated the Karate Kid sprites. I was thinking if a Cobra Kai hack couldn't be made, maybe a hack could be made where you are able to play through the game as different characters (Such as: Kumiko, Mr. Miyagi, Johnny, and Miguel, maybe Kreese and a few others). These were some sprites I made. I tried to re-create the Daniel ones since there were no rips of the game online and tried to give him some alternate outfits based off of the first movie. I will add some more to this sheet later. I want to re-do the bonus levels with Johnny, Kumiko and Miyagi at least.

Was thinking when you play through as Kumiko and Miyagi, you fight the same bosses (when playing as Kumiko, maybe the Kumiko on the boss stage could be edited to look like Daniel lol). But when you play through as Johnny, all of the bosses are Daniel, and maybe Kreese is the end boss?

Just a thought.

Special thanks to hardcore gaming 101 and moby games for the screen shots used as reference and for the Kumiko and Mr. Miyagi sprite rips that I also used as references.



EDIT

Just made these as well. Again, these aren't the actual rips. I was trying to recreate them using photos as reference:

Super Mario Bros. 3 for NES - a sequel to SMB1 and SMB2J -

The following images are just mockups, this romhack combines existent romhacks, SMB2J and SMBDX (GBC):

Separated palettes inspired by SMB Beginner hack: https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/2012/
Also Boo from SMBDX (GBC) is introduced here:

You can see the world maps like SMBDX (GBC)

You can play two players as this Romhack does: https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/4180/


Also:
Left-Right Scrolling to get back any time in the level.
Toad and Peach animations like SMBDX (GBC)
https://youtu.be/c6Bm_jexH0I?t=283

This romhack is possible, sadly is hard to make and I don't have any knowledge.
