Joy Mech Fight Special Stream (and update)

01 May 2021 5:42PM EST - Update by Streetwize

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

Joy Mech Fight is a fighting game released on the Famicom in 1993 that never saw an overseas release. Despite Nintendo’s name being on it, it was developed by two people who met at a seminar, which Nintendo decided to pick up and market. It stands programmatically and graphically impressive with constant reuse of structured code and simplified graphics to create an impressive 36 characters for the game. Its late release had a fair bit to do with its lack of reception. It’s certainly not the greatest fighting game (even if it may be only one of three fun fighters on the NES) but it has proven to be unique with quirks that allow for those experienced to break the game. The controls are responsive, though special inputs are mostly simplified and lenient for accessibility. Those used to traditional fighting games may think the game is lacking. Many characters have hidden inputs for variations of special moves, some of which do use standard inputs.

Special is intended to be a more definitive experience for competitive play. Both characters and mechanics have been heavily tuned to better fit gameplay with another person. Some of the changes sadly break the AI for characters like John and Skater. Not everything for characters has been found yet, notably the special moves’ unique properties, but at least 90% of the core gameplay can be altered.

If you had v2a or v2b, please redownload the game. A bugfix patch is included as well as an update that further tweaks some characters. v2 was a large step of progress as free space in the PRG RAM was used to alter mechanics. The current focus is refining the game as much as possible while learning how to hack due to the hacker’s relative inexperience. The hacker is aware that people enjoy new content and features, but also knows it would be wise to avoid bringing down the project from overambition.

There is a tournament for this hack being hosted next week over FightCade 2. With rollback netcode and supporting a variety of systems, it’s a great medium even for cooperative play despite the 2-player limit. The version hosted here will be the one used for the tournament. The JMF Community Discord server (linked in the tourney page and below) can help anybody interested get prepared. It will be streamed on twitch.tv/conspiratorial Update: Due to the lack of players, the stream will simply feature casuals between the organizer and hacker.

To help players better understand the hack, let’s go over a bit of the new balance on what many who played the original would consider a serious issue: the Stage 4 fighters. These characters are ranked among the best in the game, with Flame and Gaean thought of as the best overall while Hanzor is regarded as the worst of the eight; Houou is banned outside of Japan. They seem to be objectively better versions of the eight you use (while Houou can be seen as a mostly-upgraded SuperZak). They move faster, do more damage, and possess a variety of knockdown attacks. Two drawbacks exist for the new eight, however. The first is that their dizzy thresholds are slightly lowered; not by much though. The second is that their knockdown attacks have less stun when guarded, letting the opponent recover sooner. The latter doesn’t seem as intentional as the former. Both of these aspects were key factors in rebalancing the characters to create high-risk, high-reward gameplay and keep most of what they were given. Do not be scared to use any of them against others. Most of the roster has been improved anyway so no matter who these characters are against they are in for a greater challenge than before. And if you think they’re still too good, then post what you think on the Personal Projects thread as the hacker is open to feedback.

If you are interested in playing Joy Mech Fight or Joy Mech Fight Special with others then now is a good time to start with the growing English community on Discord. discord.gg/GQ3PcFav7a The hacker can easily be reached from there as well.

Release of A Genwunner's Crystal

30 April 2021 3:30PM EST - Update by hydrochlorination

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

After over 2 decades, one man, going only by the name of “Hydrochlorination” has released what many Pokémon fans have wished for in the past: A Pokémon game that does not take place in Kanto, but uses only Kanto Pokémon.

That’s right. “A Genwunenr’s Crystal” is a romhack of the famous game Pokémon Crystal, but with every Pokémon that doesn’t evolve from a Generation 1 Pokémon removed. Cut out. As the update notes read, “Obliterated”.

With this hack, it’s as if Gamefreak decided to play it safer than they did. After all, most trainers in the game already use a lot of the original 151, so it can’t be that different… can it?

Mother 3 English translation updated to version 1.3!

21 April 2021 7:52AM EST - Update by ShadowOne333

Translations News - RHDN Project Page

After more than 6 years since the last 1.2 version of the great Mother 3 English translation made by Clyde Mandelin and Jeffman, and celebrating Mother 3’s 15th Anniversary, Lorenzoone, who has done an Italian translation of Mother 3 as well, took it upon himself to polish the English translation even further with v1.3!

Lorenzoone spent approximately three years improving the English patch, going into great technical detail for parts that has issues or bugs, and tackled them to make a much more enjoyable English translation available. The game’s text is almost entirely the same as in previous releases, while most of the changes come in the form of greatly technical changes that polish and fix a lot of bugs, typos or glitches found in either the original translation, and even those from the original Japanese release.

Some of the most notable changes are:

  • A number of the translation’s bugs, issues and typos have been fixed
  • More fixes of the Japanese version’s bugs/issues
  • A lot of technical improvements to help with the overall performance and optimization of the game (no slowdowns, softlock fixes, etc.)
  • The Translation Tools have been updated, as well as adding certain features to make future translations easier for the user
  • Changed the “Ready-Set-Go” voice clip to the one featuring Lani Minella and Karmageddon
  • And probably some lesser stuff that’s been forgotten over time

Release of Super Mario: Clouds

19 April 2021 7:19AM EST - Update by HyperBound

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

In 2002, Cory Arcangel “hacked” a physical cartridge of Super Mario Brothers, the original version of the Nintendo’s blockbuster videogame (released in the United States in 1985). Initially presented as an installation piece, the artist ostensibly erased all of the sound and visual elements except the iconic scrolling clouds. Arcangel’s Super Mario Clouds has proven to be one of the most popular and enduring videogame hacks (and perhaps pieces of videogame art) in academic and popular discourses, having been featured in museums, books, and videos.

Nearly 20 years after the release of Super Mario Clouds, Michael “Hyperbound” Iantorno presents a loving parody of the famous art piece. Super Mario: Clouds is an aesthetic hack of Super Mario Bros with a strong emphasis on visible masses of condensed water - particularly those with a sunny disposition. Although the game remains mechanically unchanged, nearly every block and enemy has either been turned into a cloud or taken on some cloud-like attributes.

A frivolous endeavour? Perhaps. But maybe the world can take some joy in the hordes of smiling clouds that greet Mario as he traipses across the mushroom kingdom.

Dragon Quest Monsters: Delocalized Released.

17 April 2021 12:25AM EST - Update by Chicken Knife

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

The Translation Quest team is delighted to share Dragon Quest Monsters: Delocalized for Gameboy Color with the world.

While much can be said about the deficiencies of the original localization, and how this new retranslated version offers substantial improvements, it was thought that a single comparison may demonstrate the difference most clearly.

An original localization excerpt from the king’s right jester:

The Starry Night comes after every 47th full moon. Hundreds of thousands of stars fall and fill the sky. Fragments of light cover the world. That’s the Starry Night. The night when countless lives shower down. To celebrate the night, the tournament is held. This is the tournament of the Starry Night.

The new Delocalized translation of the same text:

The Night of the Shooting Stars comes every 47th full moon. Hundreds of thousands of falling stars fill the sky. The entire world is enveloped in a tapestry of light. When the ancient poets looked upon this starlight, they compared it to the radiance of life itself. A great tournament is held to celebrate the night. We call it the Shooting Star Tournament.

This is just one of many examples of how much the text has improved. The authors hope you will take the time to get to know all of the people of GreatTree and experience their colorful personalities in a far more complete way!

German Translation of Baten Kaitos Origins Released

15 April 2021 8:28AM EST - Update by Helsionium

Translations News - RHDN Project Page

Three years after his translation of Xenogears, Helsionium tackled Baten Kaitos Origins, another text-heavy game by Monolith Soft. Together with Sephie, who had previously worked on German translations of older Fire Emblem titles, they managed to finish this large project (comprising over 260,000 German words) in just under one year.

Baten Kaitos Origins is a late-generation Nintendo GameCube RPG and prequel to Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean. Unlike the first game, it was never released in Europe as it wouldn’t have been possible to localise it for Europe before the Wii’s launch. The Baten Kaitos series is particularly noteworthy for its detailed, vividly coloured and animated map backgrounds, painted by series director and art director Yasuyuki Honne, as well as Motoi Sakuraba’s soundtrack.

By default, the translation’s title is based on the Japanese title (German: “Baten Kaitos II: Die Schwingen des Ursprungs und der Erbe der Götter”), though the user of the patch can choose to keep the American name instead.

The patcher might even be useful to non-German-speaking users, because it provides several options that can be used independently of the German translation:

  • both patches previously released as part of the “Uncensor patch” ( https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/5547 )
  • an option to change which game unlocks Georg’s sidequest (by default a save of the US version of Baten Kaitos 1 unlocks it)
  • an option to enable Japanese voice acting for a single sidequest event that was not voiced at all in the US version
  • an option to merge the 2-disc-game into a single, fully-working image, particularly useful for patch development and debugging
  • a way to decompress all of the game’s files that use a proprietary RLE compression method

The patcher’s UI will be in English if the system language is not set to German. Java 8 or higher is required.

Please see the project page for additional details: https://www.romhacking.net/translations/6044/
