In short, it'll be a lot of work, but if there's a lot of interest it'd be worth it. (Btw, which are people more interested in, a Link's Awakening remake or an Oracles remake?)

Both are amazing games (If you did Oracles, would it be a two-games-in-one?)

Celice: Not to mention that a lot of the time the stylus based control felt unnecessary.

There's actually a D-pad hack for the game, at least the first one, which works pretty much flawlessly for gameplay. Kinda wish developers on consoles weren't always trying to eschew controllers, especially when what they decide on using is usually more complicated and less user-friendly D:

:police: Grammar Police:  It should be "framed for" instead of "framed of".

Actually, I rewrote the whole thing to flow better (feel free to use it as is or adapt it any way you choose):

"Link has been falsely accused of Princess Zelda's kidnapping.  Now a wanted elf, Link sets out to rescue her and clear his name.  But when evil forces emerge to threaten Hyrule, Link must rally to save his kingdom.  A hero will rise."

Thanks.  That does sound better!  You write don't you? :)

I can't wait to work on that title screen though.  It is too bland.  I want to polish up the font of the title, and add a sword in the middle (give it a more Zelda-feel).

I am disappointed by how the rewritten dialogue doesn't use the font colouring the original did.

High five, cj iwakura. :3

BTW, I forgot: are you going to use that "Castle of Shikigami" logo I made in the style of the official US logo?

Absolutely, that's the next step. We're having a time implementing it without the game making it look ugly, but we'll get there.

That's cool Rockman, I really dig it! See if you can add a shootin' star from one corner of the screen to another, that'd be really tight!  :cookie:

I am so seeing the Dragoon X Omega II title theme here, or else the Resident Evil Gaiden one :p Looks awesome! Though, the repeating dirt tiles at the bottom seem a little weird to me... Maybe add a few packets of dense grass?

Thanks guys!  I even fixed the storyboard too! :)



As for the ground on the title screen, I'll see if I can make it better.

Those quotation marks are a little displaced in most of the names.

This was what I was thinking.

Also, not sure how I feel about Link being called an elf, but that's nitpicking already. It sounds like the beginning of Link to the Past! XD Good job.
Who will quote me next?

Yeah, they are, but if you notice, those are the same quotes that the original game uses.  It's just the way the quotes are placed in the 8x8 tiles.  Take a look.



Still, I should try to fix them though.  It doesn't look good like that.  So, I have a few touch ups to do, but at least I know what needs fixing.  Thanks. :)

Also, not sure how I feel about Link being called an elf, but that's nitpicking already.

Isn't that what Link is though?  I googled it, and it said that he is a Hylian, which is an "elf-like" being from the land of Hyrule.  I'm not a super super Zelda fan (as in, I stopped playing Zelda games after Link's Awakening, because in my opinion, the series went down hill after that), so I'm not familiar with certain little things.

Whether Link is or isn't an elf is really up to the person. Most fans nowadays might try to put your head on a pike for even thinking Link is an elf... but I think the official materials for the first game do refer to Link as an elf of some kind (or maybe that was on NOA's side).

Either way, if it isn't relevant to the story, I'd just play it safe and remove the references to any type of elf-kind. *shrug* Although it might be funny to see the reactions of a bunch of foam frothing rage nerds with no lives. Heh.

As for the quotation marks...

Yeah, I figured you were alluding to that, but if you're going out of your way to change this screen, you might as well fix it. :P I think the VC ports of LoZ and the GCN/GBA ports actually do fix it. I'd check, but I'm at work right now.

A ROM has been dumped called Angry Birds 2 (a you tube user calls it that) but we'll call it Angry Birds - Moai Kun hack. It's a typical graphics hack that's been half assed done with palettes just like Mario Kun. Moai Senpai can open this ROM so here's what I did...

I didn't do the title screen, I'm just showing it off cause it look cool for the NES.



This game starts on level 2 for some reason, dunno why...



Here's level three, (level 2)



What do you think, should I work on this? My SMB3 hack & my MM1 hack has me stuck at the moment.

That's actually pretty neat. Too bad the game play has nothing to do with Angry Birds in the slightest. Although, it must be nice to kick the shit outta those pigs for once.
