Raggedy Land with Ann and Andy released!

06 July 2022 7:37AM EST - Update by tygerbug

ROM Hacks News

Raggedy Ann and Andy, created by Johnny Gruelle, were some of the most beloved children’s characters of the 20th century. Due to various rights issues, the property has fallen out of public view in recent years, but there’s still a strong fandom for the characters among younger and older enthusiasts alike.

Raggedy Land is a visually beautiful NES romhack which feels like the sort of game Raggedy Ann could have had back in 1987. There aren’t a lot of hacks of Data East’s “Donald Land” out there, so this feels relatively fresh and unique. Almost every character has been redesigned and replaced, with lots of deep-cut and fan-favorite characters from various Raggedy Ann related projects. The coding was reworked to allow for the new characters.

It’s also a relatively non-violent game, depending on how you play it, and feels in keeping with Raggedy Ann & Andy, who are both playable in the game.

This hack was done by film restorationist Garrett Gilchrist, who restored the 1977 film Raggedy Ann & Andy: A Musical Adventure for web release. Half the graphics were designed by Brooklyn Williams, of the Raggedy Ann Revival Effort, which seeks to revive the obscure 1986 Broadway musical “Rag Dolly.” Both projects featured songs by Joe Raposo.

Manall's FF1 v2.2.1 Update

05 July 2022 5:59PM EST - Update by Manall

ROM Hacks News

2.2.1 has arrived to fix a tiling & minimap bug experienced with 2.2’s base patch. This fixes the issues experienced most often near the top and bottoms of the world map. While the origins of this odd bug are unknown, it has been since squashed. Only the base patch was affected - all other patches that came with 2.2 were clean.

Although an extremely small update, this important fix is relevant to all players who have grabbed version 2.2.

Pokemon Crystal 251 (v2.0) Out Now

05 July 2022 3:52AM EST - Update by Razormime

ROM Hacks News

Pokemon Crystal 251 was created to maintain the vanilla Crystal experience as much as possible, while providing in-game solutions to finishing the Pokedex 100% alone. As work was being done on a minor update to add a few Mystery Gift items to in-game events, the author found himself adding every missing Mystery Gift and Time Capsule exclusive item, including the hold items and room decorations. In addition, new skills were developed while finding even more room to expand some of the areas developed in v1.x.

With all of the new items added to in-game events, and existing Crystal 251 events receiving substantial updates, the project has evolved beyond a simple decimal update and has become a full version 2.0 update.

While the project focused on players using emulators, every precaution was made to ensure that players who want to play on real hardware can do so, and can still have complete compatibility with RBY, GSC, Pokemon Stadium 1&2, Gameboy Printer, etc. Players on hardware should be able to battle via gamelink cable, trade, and use transfer paks on the N64!

Pokemon Crystal 251 (v2.0) strives to be the best, most complete vanilla Crystal experience possible.

Kenseiden - Korean sprite hack released

30 June 2022 1:31PM EST - Update by alien nose job

ROM Hacks News

Many levels, a non-linear game path, big sprites, lots of bosses, an eerie mood with demons running at you from everywhere, a really good FM synth soundtrack (for the Japanese version or on emulator), an expandable set of moves and a hero that has two sets of sprites : one facing left, the other facing right.

Kenseiden is a great game for the Sega Master System, if not one of the best.

Another peculiarity is that the hero is a bright orange with a somewhat stiff look in the Japanese and US/EUR version.

This game has been re-released in Korea under the name “Hwarang Ui Geom” with redrawn sprites for the hero.

This hack ports these new sprites to the US version of the game and adds a few minor tweaks to some background elements as well as alternate palettes for the hero. Every change is optional for anyone to choose what he prefers.

The author did not make it very clear in his forum thread but he would like to make this hack evolve into a general improvement mod by changing a few gameplay elements, but would need guidance. If you want to help, you can contribute using the relevant link.
