Photo-Sensitive Epilepsy Safe Hacks

29 September 2020 9:12AM EST - Update by tygerbug

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

Several hacks of NES and SNES games are now available for players with photo-sensitive epilepsy.

Full-screen flashing lights can cause seizures in some players. These games have been edited to be safe to play.

Hopefully in the future there will be more hacks of any game to be more friendly to those with photo-sensitive epilepsy, and emulator settings to detect and remove (or lessen) sudden full-screen flashing, or an lua script to do it.

Many triggers come from rapid writes to color 0 of the background palette (universal background color). This could be unchecked.

This is an accessibility hack by Tetrahedrus. This hack has removed all full-screen flashes from Mega Man 2 for the NES.

  • Stage select screen
  • Flashing during boss fights (such as in the background like with Metal Man, when attacking certain bosses, and the flashing after beating certain bosses)
  • The purple flashing when Dr. Light gives you special weapons
  • The map of Dr. Wily’s castle when progressing to the next stage
  • The final cutscene, including the seasonal transitions

Willow NES No Flash Hack by JigglySaint

http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/4992/

Some flashing animation is still in the game, but the ones that got the most complaints such as the death flash, the flash from splitting ghosts, and from using the Fleet Spell have all been eliminated. Death will still cause Willow to flash, and the screen will turn white, but the full screen flash will be gone.
