I noticed the version of the Hollow Knight randomizer listed is outdated. Here's the github link for the new one:

It also uses a new mod loader called Scarab, it's releases can be found here:

"Final Fantasy XIII (Steam) / Final Fantasy XIII-2 (Steam) / Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII (Steam) (Bartz24's 2021) - Discord account required to download the required Nova Chrysalia mod manager"

just thought i'd check to see if there were any new randomizers and saw this which makes me feel a need to request an alternative download source because discord servers are not, and should not be used as, a file hosting service.

game devs and modders alike both seriously need to STOP doing this.

there's a limit to how many servers a person can join on discord and people should not need to join a discord server in order to download something like this.

SmashManiac

I sooo agree with you treos. The sad part is that Nova Chrysalia was fully public on Nexus Mods for a while, but it got delisted. Meanwhile I can provide a direct link to it from Discord (direct links to uploaded files require no authentication) but I would need to update it every time a new version is released, which is too much work for me (and shouldn't be my responsibility to begin with).

Video game preservation is hard. Preservation of fan-made mods and tools is even harder. Unfortunately I don't have the time to do so myself.

understandable and i also just spotted another issue though nothing so potentially serious as the above one.

https://github.com/mapron/d2modgen

i was going to give this a try but then i stopped to read the menus and stuff and this randomizer was actually made for Diablo II: Resurrected, not Diablo II (the original game).

treos

please adjust the Digimon World 2 discord invite link please.

the current link asks you to create a new discord account instead of simply joining the server with your current account as it should.

i already have a discord account. i don't need to make another one to join a server.

also, that's yet another developer on the list of devs using discord to likely host their releases which shouldn't be done. -_-

edit: or maybe my mistake. i seem to have overlooked the "already have an account?" link on the page there.

ugh...geez...i don't know where to begin with this one.

remember that digimon world 2 randomizer that you have to join the relevant discord server in order to download (cause, sure, let's use discord to host the file like a genius >.>)?

well...i hadn't checked on it in quite some times and just downloaded version 1.12 and it's no longer a randomizer. or rather it's no longer a randomizer app.

Rando Tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JCmIjz_oW50 "Quick video on how to setup my Digimon World 2 Randomizer. Enjoy!"

hope it's ok if i post a youtube link here for the sake of helping to explain this.

yeah...it's now gone from being a randomizer app to...a spreadsheet and requiring those who want to use it to use the following...

IsoBuster or similar
A Hex editor (I use HxD)
ChaosWargreymon's tool to ISO build (link is pinned on #tech-and-dev-chat on Discord)
My spreasheet
DW2 Iso

i'm leaving that server. i only joined for the randomizer but i'm not jumping through hoops and manually hex editing a game to do what a randomizer *app* does automatically. i mean, that's the whole point of them being apps, right?

if you bring up a hex editor and start manually changing the values to whatever you want them to be...that's not random. that's just basic romhacking... relatively basic.

>.> not much different from how you would hex edit say...action replays into a game. like infinite lives in sonic the hedgehog 2 for genesis...which i actually did myself many years ago.

edit: um...probably should've mentioned it before but that spreadsheet thing... where it says you can refresh it to get different values...no...you can't. not if, like me, you're copy of microsoft office or whatever app is a free, unregistered, version (mine's the copy that came with the pc and i have never needed it for...anything.).

so, that bizarre spreadsheet "randomizer" is just useless/unusable to someone like me.

SmashManiac

I just checked the spreadsheet you mentioned, and it seems to be randomizing fine when opened with LibreOffice, which is free and open source. That said, having to manually apply the data is definitely problematic. I'll keep the entry for now while I ponder about what to do in this case. Thanks for the info!

### Added randomizers

### Other changes

- Marked LtSquigs's Crystal Project randomizer as obsolete since the author will no longer maintain it now that the main game contains a built-in one.
- Renamed The Ultimate Doom to Doom (Ultimate) following Bethesda's new naming convention for the Doom series.
- Merged the duplicate entry for the Pokémon Crystal Item Randomizer with the Speedchoice hack.
- Updated the Universal Pokemon Randomizer - Speedchoice entry by removing the Pokémon Crystal/Emerald Speedchoice hacks from it since they are now maintained independently, and renamed it to Official to avoid confusion and for consistency.
- Removed the obsolete note about where to find the Pokémon Speedchoice hacks.
- Renamed the Lizard randomizer to Official for consistency.
- Reorganized the Mario subseries.
- Updated the Digimon World 2 randomizer entry with current information.

I recently learned of an undocumented Steam feature that allows downloading old versions of games on their platform. While this is great in theory, the steps to do so are technical or require unofficial tools. Either way, this undocumented feature could break at any moment, as it apparently did in the past. As such, I am quite hesitant to include randomizers requiring such downloads on the list, and decided to continue excluding them for the time being, on the grounds that this is most likely not a feature intended for the general public.

### Added randomizers

- Castlevania (Nintendo 64) (apworld)
- Elden Ring (Diablo Style Loot)
- Elden Ring (Elden Loot)
- Live A Live (PinkSwitch's)

- Spyro the Dragon (Requirement Randomizer)
- Spyro: Year of the Dragon (hwd405's)
- Super Metroid Subversion (hack) (SubversionRando)
- The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition (Serpent's Modular Randomizer)
- The Final Fantasy Legend (Chaoseum)

### Other changes 

- Changed the list inclusion/exclusion criteria to match the above.
- Updated the Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga randomizer link to one that does not require a Discord account.
- Added link to OoTMM's source code.
- Renamed Hitman 3 (2021) to its new official name World of Assassination.
- Clarified that the randomizer for Commander Keen: Invasion of the Vorticons is for the shareware version.
- Fixed Pokémon FireRed/LeafGreen incorrectly labeled as upper instead of remakes.
- Other minor changes and fixes.
