That would be very interesting. A Della hack would be a start!

The references have gone the other way too:

Just switching out the graphics and changing some text is easy. But yeah, it would be really cool to make a reboot based hack with new levels. Maybe start on the moon and Della has to get back to earth!

Delightful. If I had time on my hands I'd like to make this into a romhack. I will follow this thread to remember tp check it out when I got the time. Anyone else interested?



Took me 5 minutes. And NesDraug's video is pretty good and definitely hits the topic on how to use tile editor to view tiles correctly in this game. Like the voice btw.

First of all, thanks. And secondly, be nice.

What do you need, Mattiac?

Ok, so this project is not dead. I'm only sleeping. But I've picked this up and will do more levels. And I've added more bosses from Yellow Submarine.

It was quite tricky to repurpose Fryguy into the Dreadful Flying Glove. Thanks iridium_ionizer for the graphics btw.

Fryguy uses mirrored animations and that messed up the graphics.

Fryguy animations starts att 620A
Change a0 values. Example A0:D2 Change the D2 into C6 or something else. That's the graphic tiles.



Here's my tutorial on editing Zelda graphics. I'm not talking anything about the sign but perhaps this can be of value anyway.

Z22: The Adventure of Link and Lonk
It also comes with a difficulty selection based on the save file you choose to play.

I added The Adventure of Link and Lonk to the list. Wow, multiplayer co-op Zelda! Good job. Does one dare to hope on the original Zelda getting the same treatment?

Battletoads & Double Dragon 4 players (NES)

For some reason this hack escaped me. And I see that there's a update in the submission queue.

Felix The Cat NES Corruption!


This idea just came to me: A Tiny Toon Adventures NES hack with Babs, Shirley, and Fifi taking the roles of Buster, Plucky, and Furball for the game (not sure whether to just leave Dizzy in or replace him with another Toon character). I mean after seeing the role switching hacks of other games, I wouldn't mind trying to play as Babs on the first game (maybe the Gameboy game too).

EDIT: Also on the subject of hacks and gameboy, someone should really make the 3 PPG GBC games a little more bearable. I mean there were just some bugs that made my gameplay experience with the three games impossible.

I could have sworn I've already seen this hack. But I guess I'm wrong. Looked for it and couldn't find it. I must have dreamt it. The only female charter I could think of instead of Dizzy is Mary Melody. Or perhaps... Granny? Sweetie? Idk. XD

Haven't tried it, will look into it. Do you know if it's ok to bundle the patch with this? or how does that work?

You have to ask mishra about that. Nice fellow, even helped me when I made the Mario version of his hack.

Awesome work!

... This won't work with the 4player hack, right?

Gaming Discussion / Re: Worst games that hackers fixed
« on: May 14, 2020, 02:10:16 pm »
I actually started to work on Conan. Tried to make it look nicer, with better controls and whatnot. But I soon realized the game is so boring, so broken and so bad it's not worth touching.
Here's a list of games that hackers could improve:

Decent games with bad graphics:

A Boy and His Blob: Trouble on Blobolonia (NES)
Battle City (NES)
Digger - The Legend of the Lost City (NES)
Metal Force (NES)
Metal Storm (NES)
Wizards & Warriors  (NES)
IronSword: Wizards & Warriors II  (NES)
Qix  (NES)


Games with terrible gameplay and decent graphics:
Terminator 2: Judgment Day (NES)
Make enemies weaker!

I was wondering if anyone here has made a list of games (specifically NES games, but 16-bit is okay too) that have GREAT gameplay, but POOR-quality art assets? I would think that these would be some of the best games to give a graphics hack, since it would breath new life into something that most people won't touch simply because of the poor art.

I'm also interested in this.
I've started a similar thread a while ago.
But I wish to know awful games that have been fixed.

Hmm not quite sure if I get it right but... It sounds like I can only swap the starting point of the three swords. Afaik it is lke this: the wooden sword uses same colors as for example Link, The white Sword (and magical boomerang) use the same as blue enemies, and the magical sword uses the same colors as red enemies. so even if I swap these three around so the magical sword uses Links colors then the white and wooden sword will use other colors instead?

My goal to make Link and his equipment and all three swords use the same Dark Colors while the world will stay the same will not be achieved by that will it?

Well, you could redraw the weapon sprites to just have one or two colors with YY-CHR.

Really? Nobody likes the classic Batman? I always thought he was the best one.

I do like the 60s batman show. I appreciate it as a campy parody comedy version of Batman.

Needless to say, that Shadows of Gotham hack is so much cooler than that and need more of a 80s vibe.

That's a good idea. Nice job! Def the first one. And please not that campy 60's Batman.  ::) How about something rad like this:

Love that game/hack, but I noticed some of the art could be improved. If anyone can get me the enemy sprites, I wouldn't mind doing some work on that. I'm a pretty big Batman fan. 

I agree. I'm also a Batman fan and wish I could help with the graphics, but I have too much on my plate right now. Perhaps I could do just one or two enemies if someone else is also interested in helping out.

Osman Color released a Batman hack of Shatterhand a couple of months ago that I started to improve. Have you seen it? This is also a hack that need some love. And Batman villains.

Yeah, I just posted my findings so far.

I'm not super sure about Link's palette in every single level. But I'm working on it. I'll update the list as I go.

The green palette weapons ALWAYS has the same color as Link, both in overworld and in levels.

Edit: I found the adresses for LEVEL palettes. Yes. Every level seem to have it's very own set of palettes.

I'll update previous list as I go along.

Oh, I forgot, there's already a ROM MAP.

I might as well post this here. The bad news (you already know that) is that a lot of things share palettes! This is what I've found during the making of my hack:

019d08  Heart menu left
019cf0  Hearts menu right

019cfd - Link1 in menu
019d01 - Link2 in menu
019d05 - Link3 in menu

Also: Link has a new skin/hair palette for each LEVEL!

009573 - Link tunic in scrolling intro
(also green weapons)
009574 - Link skin in scrolling intro
009575 - Link hair/outline in scrolling intro

00A297 - Link's tunic AND green weapons* (overworld)
019325 Link's skin and green weapons (overworld)
019326 Link's hair/outline and green weapons (overworld)
019329 Blue enemies and blue weapons (overworld)
01932C Red enemies and red weapons (overworld)

*The green palette weapons ALWAYS has the same color as Link
and will change to the pallette of the blue or red ring.

0x6BA5 - Green Tunic color?

0x6BA7 - Red Tunic color

Posting because I'm also working on my first Zelda hack and I also have questions. But also answers!

I made a small tutorial on editing sprites a while ago, sorry I didn't see this thread earlier.

I've also found a way to change Links colors. Go to: 0000A297 - the color of Links tunic.
