Hello! (new here and all)
Well, I've been trying to make a hack of this game for my sister. You know, just for the fun of it. Most, if not all, of what I'm doing is editing dungeons. I wanted to add some extra challenges in some places and remove annoyances in others. I know my sis will enjoy the ideas I got for the game. So far I'm doing more or less okay with Hyrule Magic, although the program often crashes on me when I try to change doors, but, I can even work with that.
I do want to make other changes, but it seems to require ASM knowledge. I tried reading a lot about this subject. I could find things about how to apply an ASM file to a rom and information about Binaries and Hexadecimals, but, what I can't find is how to know which code to change to cause what effect in the game. I'm pretty much stuck here.
I would appreciate if someone could help me to figure this out. This is really my first hack. ^^;
What I'm trying to do is:
1-Make the Book of Mudora fully replenish magic when used (like the Big Magic/Green Potion) without the Book losing its original use. I am aware that it would make the game too easy if she gets the Magic Cape, Cane of Byrna or any of the medallions, but, I plan to move things around so that she can't abuse that.
2-Any suggestions on how to remove an item/weapon from Link before he gets to the boss of a dungeon? It would be interesting to force my sis to think in new ways when facing familiar situations. I was thinking something like maybe a big Fairy asks for that specific item in exchange for the Boss Key, or maybe simply walking into a room would make the item disappear or become unusable. Of course, I would have to add a chest or something at the end of the dungeon so that Link can remover it.
I guess if the hack comes out good enough I could always upload it somewhere, but, yeah, for now it's just something I want to do for fun.
Oh! Also, although I can work around that doors glitch in Hyrule Magic, if anyone has a suggestion on how to work with the doors without the whole thing crashing, I'd appreciate that too.
