Power Up with Mega Man Star Force DX!

10 June 2021 9:20AM EST - Update by Prof. 9

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

The oft-overlooked, yet beloved cult classic Mega Man RPG series, Mega Man Star Force, has received an expansive mod for the first game. Mega Man Star Force DX aims to completely revamp and modernize the original, by bringing over many features and improvements from the sequels.

New gameplay elements and mechanics have been added, as well as an expanded postgame, restored Japan-exclusive and unused content, and a wide range of QoL improvements. Every aspect of the game has been touched up in some way!

Some of the highlights among the vast list of changes:

  • The font has been updated to that of MMSF2/MMSF3, greatly improving the story presentation.
  • Gameplay features which were exclusive to the Wave Scanner peripheral have been seamlessly integrated into the base game, in the form of Star Cards and Power Up data.
  • A new Legend Mode difficulty has been added, providing a sizable challenge to even seasoned players.
  • The touch screen is no longer mandatory; all touch inputs and minigames can now also be done with button controls.
  • The Lunar Knights crossover, which was cut from the international releases, has been fully restored in a single player context.
  • All version-exclusive content can now be experienced in a single game: including Star Force transformations, Giga Class Battle Cards and Satellite admin bosses.

But this is only the tip of the iceberg - head over to the project page and check it out for yourself!

Upgrade Your PSX Double Z Mod Experience with the Japanese Version!

09 June 2021 5:06PM EST - Update by eskayelle

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

The American version of NBA Jam T.E. being one of the first PSX release discs in the States, some AI fixes were implemented in the Japanese rom that was issued close to a year later. This Double Z Mod takes advantage of those AI edits and moves over eskayelle / Double Z’s previous mods to the Japanese game.

Given the above, you’ll still have the following features…

  • Battle from worst to first in campaign mode, with standings loosely based on the 1992-93 NBA season.
  • Players like Shaq, Jordan, Magic and Barkley have been restored!
  • Secret players like Sub-Zero, Reptile, Scorpion, and Bart Simpson, are all accessible. Even Smoke and Noob Saibot are in this game!!!
  • Wanna play as Chris Webber? Hakeem Olajuwon? Scottie Pippen? Just like the arcade version, several 90s superstars are available both on teams and as secret players.
  • Detroit Bad Boys Laimbeer, Thomas, and Rodman are all available as secret players.
  • The 72-10 Chicago Bulls are here! Jam with Jordan, Pippen, Rodman, Kukoc and… Longley…
  • Think the AI still plays a bit too rough? Why not fight back with a super cheat. Use the code Right, Right, Left, Right, X, X, Right at the Tonight’s Match-Up screen to achieve true Maximum Offense and Defense. Fight back with everything but fire!
  • The Rookies have been rebalanced with more Eddie Jones and Tony Dumas. Plus, Brooks Thompson has been restored.
  • What other Superstars do you need when you have the Dream Team??? Beat the game in campaign mode to access the 1992 Olympic gold medalists.
  • Not a fan of the watered down house rock? Enjoy some ‘80s and ‘90s jams as well as some classic 16-bit Jam tunes instead.
  • A quick palette fix adjusts the attribute colors on the player select screen.

Also, beyond the original programming setting apart the American and Japanese roms, this mod boasts two different 90s tracks for the in-game music, plus a few different Dream Team roster combos, as well as an Astroblast-style stats font.

New voice hack Dragon Ball Z: Buyuu Retsuden

03 June 2021 6:00PM EST - Update by Kanon

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

Dragon Ball Z: Buyuu Retsuden is the first and only (official) game from the Dragon Ball franchise made for the Mega Drive. As such, compared to its SNES cousins, it has a lot of exclusives (Krilin!) but lacked some content as well.

One of the divisive aspects is the character voices. It had less voices than the Super Butoden entries (3 per character), and while some are very exciting choices, at the same time most are not specific to the fighters actions, but`phrases like “Die!”, “Take this!”, etc.

This new hack for Dragon Ball Z: Buyuu Retsuden by KanonZombie aims to improve some of the choices made for the voices of the special attacks.

  • Gohan now says “Masenkō” when doing his signature move, instead of “Ha”, in consequence, now says “Ha” when doing a Kame Hame Ha.
  • Piccolo now says “Makankōsappō” for Makankōsappō, and “Ha” for Gekiretsu Kodan, his other super attack.
  • Vegeta now screams “Final Flash” for Final Flash, and “Ha” for Big Bang Attack.
  • Trunks now says “Finish Buster” for Finish Buster, and “Ha” for Burning Attack.
  • Cell now instead of some weird grunt in the original, now says “Kame Hame Ha“, and “Ha” for his Makankōsappō

Reportedly, limitations in the game engine (not ROM space) only allows for 3 voices per character, hence the need to change some voices to the generic “Ha!” instead of more specific phrases for the other attacks. But the author of the patch is working on that, so stay tuned for more in the future!

Download the patch HERE and check the new voices!

NBA Jam 21: Playoffs Edition?

25 May 2021 8:16AM EST - Update by ponlork

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

The NBA Playoffs are here and what better way to kick off the postseason than with a special playoff themed release of NBA Jam 21 by user Ponlork for the PlayStation 1. This version adds Chris Paul, Damian Lillard, Donovan Mitchell, Julius Randle, Jayson Tatum, Jimmy Butler, Trae Young, and Desmond Bane to round out the remaining playoff bound teams.

Each Playoff team is represented with at least one current player in the lineup giving it a nice blend of today’s NBA players with stars of yesteryear. On top of that, the gameplay mechanics have vastly improved from previous releases. The timing of the poster dunks is much more accurate, you can just feel the dunks pulsating on impact.

Check out this Longplay video that showcases the mod in action:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DoYUJPdROGg

Combine it with Duckstation and Parsec, you can easily get some 4 player action going on with enhanced graphics. The Attributes font was also modified to match the Arcade style, the player stats are much easier to read now.

It’s time to pump up your sneakers and rewind the past. Grab a copy of NBA Jam 21 Ver 1.2 patch below:

MOTHER Restored - A more faithful way to play MOTHER on the NES!

24 May 2021 12:52PM EST - Update by pancakes

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

When MOTHER was localized into Earth Bound (later re-titled EarthBound Beginnings), it underwent unnecessary changes and censorship, as well as a script that contained errors and omitted references. These issues were resolved in 2011 by Tomato’s fan translation for the GBA port of the game, which provided a more accurate and natural-sounding script.

MOTHER Restored brings the fan translation to the NES and reverts the graphical changes made during localization for fans who want to play a more faithful version of the original game, which boasts higher audio quality than its GBA counterpart.

Unlike previous attempts to replace EarthBound Beginnings’ dialogue, this hack repoints virtually all of the text in the game. This allowed the fan translation to be included in its entirety without any cuts to dialogue, battle text, or descriptions. To make the game even more faithful, names of characters, locations, items and more have been made as close to the Japanese version as possible. Graphics that were altered during localization, whether due to censorship or any other reason, have also been restored so that they can be experienced exactly as they were intended.

Overall, the goal of this hack is to offer a more authentic way to play MOTHER in English on its original console.
