patches are legal and there's nothing Nintendo or anyone else can do about them so long as they are distributed freely and without including the original rom files.

AM2R is a fan game. That's different.
I know, why are people even briinging it up in this thread. Gahh.

ROM Hacking Discussion / Re: Seriously, why? (IPS vs BPS/UPS/Xdelta)
« on: August 11, 2016, 12:26:19 am »
First of all, I know I'm gonna get a lot of hate messages for this from people who think I'm a crotchety old hacker who can't accept change. I get that.

However, lately I am seeing all kinds of patching formats all over the site, and it's getting frustrating that I need a separate program to use each patch type, and some of them won't even patch at all if I don't have the exact same copy of the ROM right down to the byte. We've been using IPS since the 90's, and everything has been built to function with IPS patches.
ye I feel you. And what about people using the new 7-zip to compress files instead of WinRAR. It doesn't even do anything that's better. All it's doing it making me have to download the new 7-zip just to unpack it. Complete nonsense. :(

ROM Hacking Discussion / Re: Is there other community site

Yes. It is wide. There are many different hacks of several different gaming console platforms and ROM hacking has been going on for a long time ever since the late 90s. :)

If that's what you meant if not maybe you can PM me :cookie:

ye just started playing the Dragoon X Omega hack (on NES) and also the hack of that hack Amnethen Apocalypse. DXO seems like an extremely solid hack. It also has a sequel that is a hack of Final Fantasy 1.

Gaming Discussion / Re: Don't you hate dreams about computer games

Naw I don't hate it I like it sometimes. I had several dreams of being inside of video games I've played in real life - well mostly Dystopia. I can remember two different ones I was inside the game but it was in maps that don't exist IRL. It was pretty fun - in one I even remember players leaving the game like what sometimes happens in Dys because there are so few players .

Dont say that terrible phrase.... please.
Nintendoes do stuff don't they. :angel:

Yea, we're still wrenching on that last 1 or 2 %.  We probably could have made the 30th anniversary date but we decided to add a few last minute extras.  The extras entailed some additional music, some more screens, a few more hidden Easter eggs, modifying the run animation (WIP), and probably the most awesome ASM addition to date.  The added time was well worth it!  The exrtas are close to done, some minor tweaking and a little ASM remains.  Snarfblam changed the run animation to a 1, 2, 3, 2 sequence but I still have to redo the graphics to make it look right.

We'll have to do some play testing soon also but I can't imagine that will take too long.  We'll be looking for a few more people to help test it out, I'll announce it when we're ready.
That sounds really amazing and I'm sure it will be worth the wait. I'm really glad the developers have decided to take their time and add in these extra tweaks. :thumbsup: I'm particularly interested in hearing the new music.

That sounds really great. Can't wait to get my hands on this. :woot!:

Gaming Discussion / Re: Suggestions for fun, classic MS-DOS games
« on: August 07, 2016, 07:05:27 pm »
Anyone got any suggestions for games I ought to try out?
I donno. There's a game I used to play on Commodore 64 called Congo Bongo. It's kindof like a 3D donkey kong or something. I think it may be on DOS too.

Gaming Discussion / Re: BEST Emulation News Websites?
« on: August 02, 2016, 04:18:51 pm »

I will play this game in a Nes emulator in a Wii console in a 29" CRT TV.
That sounds fun. I'll probably never play it until I can put it into a genuine HD modded NES just to give it the respect it deserves. :-X

I'd kill for a hack of Grandia that skips the drawn out voiceover clips that play before any spell/skill is cast. It would greatly speed up magic and weapon skill lvl grinding!
You know what would be tricked out? If I could play a hacked game of battle chess with you. Like as in Archon hacked.

I don't know what you might hack in it - faster projectiles for better pieces . . Queen, King , etc.

Faster movement for various pieces. . . . Different colors of palette definitely. ! (The Archon game seems to be centered around variations of light and dark aka black and white, hence the atrocious box cover . .)

I don't know what you could hack but it's essentially a game of battle chess so dream up your own stuff. ;D

GameTechUS selling more HiDefNES

See I like to take my video games seriously. None of that Mario dick nazi crap or some such other silly nonsense.

Total conversions. On the serious tip.

Like say, for example, that new Metroid Rogue Dawn hack that is coming out. Now that is some enspiring stuff. It's making me want to begin on my own idea that is quite different but just as big. Or maybe the Castlevania III hack Vengeance on Hell. You know, serious type shit.

It kindof amazes me that nobody has made a Metroid hack with vastly edited palette blocks (aside from Rogue Dawn which doesn't count because it's pretty much the best T[otal] C[onversion]. Most Metroid hacks I've played still use the same graphics blocks. Go figure. :-\

So sprite editing is what I mean. Editing sprites in the 8x8. (Plus palettes of course.) Then there's music (of course that's always good.) But that and gameplay mechanics. This is something people probably don't do because it's just too hard. (and there's help here on the forums but it just isn't enough apparently.)

So - total conversions of good games. Those with good ideas could easily come up with enough to satisfy at least many more than has been released as of yet.

It seems to me that , as of yet , the ideas category is lacking as is the the will to actually do hacking on a massive scale.  :angel:  >:D

My three year old kid has less of a sense of entitlement than you've displayed in this thread. If you don't like the new unit, don't buy it. Nintendo doesn't owe you shit.
Ye but hey you know video games serious bidness. ;D

Programming / Re: Ben Heck "tears down" the SNES Play Station
« on: July 18, 2016, 02:29:56 am »
He's been like this as of recently...
sorry I been full on captain loose my shit for a couple years now.

Now that I've regained my sanity I might add that the Ben Heck guy seems like a real straight shooter. :-X

The corner map doesn't tell you where to go, it only shows what the path does in the next screen in any given direction.  It doesn't show item placement either.  Bosses are not marked, nor are healing stations.  The pause map is more revealing since it shows what the path does multiple screens over and you can freely scroll it with the directional pad.  I think people are making a bigger deal about the map than is warranted honestly, consider it (corner map) a scanning device she has that scans the structures in the immediate area.  The corner map can easily be disabled by painting the associated tiles with transparency (color slot 1 in TLP)
Yes thank you for the explanation and yes I will shut up about it now. Wasn't even gonna mention it until I saw everybody else bringing it up.

Mhmm. Yea I might actually try it.
