Zelda3 PuzzleDudes Quest

10 January 2011 8:41AM EST - Update by puzzledude

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

I started to remodel the original Zelda A Link to the Past game a long time ago. Unlike Goddess of Wisdom this is a modification, but despite that the dungeons are quite different to solve with a lot of new tricks and hidden objects.

I was concentrating to change the gameplay as much as possible, so even a veteran of the game can easily get stuck. The game is also more difficult than the original, but still quite easy at some points. Despite the fact that this is a remodel, it still took a lot of work, specially because of the number of the dungeons. The overworld, however, is less modified, but there are a lot of barriers, that will force you to search for the correct path. A smart player will quickly see, that this is much more than just another vapid master quest.

Transcorp: The Group That Flexes

06 January 2011 1:41PM EST - Update by RedComet

Translations News - RHDN Project Page

Nightcrawler posted some new information back in late December concerning the progress of Heracles IV, the new table standard being developed, and his new custom text dumper that is going to strong arm its way through the competition.

Heracles is moving right along and I’ve got to say, it’s looking very nice thus far. A consensus amongst the community seems to have been reached concerning the new table standard, and the tentatively titled TextAble is going to make my own Cartographer look very bad in the near future. I could not be happier.

Click the link for a more serious burn and some righteous pump action. There’s also a lot of puns. :p

Final Fantasy VI Once Again Released

02 January 2011 10:24AM EST - Update by Piggy Chan!

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

I’ve worked on this project, my very first, during most of last year. It started out with humble intentions, but I experimented and implemented more and more until, after several hiccups, four personal test runs, three other beta testers and countless hours of picking at things and ideas, it’s done. Primarily a re-balancing of the original game, likely akin to Eviltype, but with many other subtle changes and touches, which I hope will prove somewhat unique without transforming the game’s story or presentation. I know there is no shortage of Final Fantasy VI hacks, and this one won’t break the mold, but I think fans of Final Fantasy will appreciate it.

Super Robot Wars J Translation Release

26 December 2010 10:57AM EST - Update by Deets

Translations News - RHDN Project Page

After a few years of work, The Romhacking Aerie has released a complete translation of the Game Boy Advance strategy RPG “Super Robot Wars J”. This is a full localization, including graphics, and a lot of time and effort went into its development.

Much like other games in this franchise, Super Robot Wars J combines the characters and plot lines of several licensed robot anime together, birthing a thoroughly crazy strategy RPG in the process. That said, there’s a lot to like here, even if you don’t have any interest in giant robot cartoons.

Everything is translated, and, to our knowledge, fully working. Enjoy!

RHDN 5th Anniversary and RHDN 2.3 Released!

24 December 2010 7:25PM EST - Update by Nightcrawler

Site News

RHDN has turned 5 years old! We’ve had nearly 30 million unique visits. We are only a few months away from being the longest lasting active ROM hacking website in history. In honor of this occasion, we have released RHDN 2.3 to the site with the addition of several new goodies. Read on for details!

RHDN 2.3 has been released! It’s the culmination of all I’ve been working on this year for RHDN. I have cleared out most of the backlog of items leaving only those that never had a detailed plan for implementation. The following are some of the additions that have been made:

  • Enhanced Profiles with contribution rankings, reviews, news, and more!
  • Added submission form contents to rejection e-mails.
  • Added approved item link to approval e-mails.
  • Linked News Items to projects via the ‘News Articles for this Translation’ link.
  • Data Crystal ROM hacking wiki and Community History added.
  • Added language to translations in forum profiles and community database profiles.
  • User interface added to forms to submit an entry without a file and indicate when the project has no readme file.
  • Whirlpool News Archive added.

It’s been a very good year around here. RHDN hit it’s niche this year being a positive place where people can come to exchange information, discuss projects, and socialize more than ever before. Stability, personnel, management, and community participation were all at very admirable levels. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of our staff and community members who helped contribute to RHDN this year, and build the longest lasting, largest site of it’s kind! There were many impressive releases this year from our community content creators, and the bar just keeps rising. I look forward to seeing what everybody is capable of in year 6!

At this point, I’ve done nearly everything I set out to do with the site. I had hoped to eliminate staff entirely at one point, but experience has shown we need to continue to have screening staff members in order to maintain adequate quality levels on the site. A few other compromises were made along the way where experience showed some ideals were not practical. However, for the most part, my original vision has come to full fruition and exceeded all my expectations.

With 5 years of development coming to an end, it is now time to look to the future and determine a path to take for the next 5 years. I extend an invitation to all to discuss with us your hopes, dreams, and visions for the RHDN of the future. We will re-evaluate our roles, lay out a new plan, and embark on a new journey forward!

Soul Hackers spreads its (bat) wings

24 December 2010 8:46AM EST - Update by Gemini

Translations News

The Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers project is back on track, this time with a few not-so-broken pictures (and a video teaser here).

What has been done so far:

  • All story dialogs have been translated as well as most of the system strings;
  • Partially translated battle dialog;
  • Coded a new 8 BPP VWF overlay that supports all of the font modes used in game (the old one caused so many glitches I was forced to kill it entirely).

As usual many thanks to Tom for providing all the translated text. Hope you like it!
