I love this game, it is simple to hacking? You use VWF dialogue?

The battle dialog is easy enough to get at and, with a bit of assembly-level hacking, you can change which strings are said during which moves (very helpful in tweaking Hiei's jaou* moves) but pretty much all of the graphics are compressed (including the fonts and various interface pieces) and the menu strings use some really weird control codes. And yeah, hacked a VWF into it years ago.

I've got 'em archived. http://www.hitbox.tv/GideonZhi

Any chance you might put those on Youtube? There seem to be a problem watching those on tablets.

So why don't I watch them on my computer? Well, I just made a back surgery since I had an accident and can only sit for short moments for 8 weeks plus watching videos on tablet is always nice. Unless the problem is just my nexus 10.

I... don't know, actually. I'm not sure if youtube will let me upload a video longer than 15 minutes? Plus there's the music playing in the background and the possibility of a resulting copyright strike.

I think you can increase the 15 min limit if you verify your account https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/71673?rd=1

I don't know about the music though so it might not be worth the risk. It seem hitbox team is working on an Android app though so i'll wait for that.

I'm also gonna try if I can cast a tab on your video with chromecast when I get home.

I thought I'd upload the videos myself to Dropbox or something like that but they're so friggin' enormously gigantic. Though I can provide a direct link to the files hosted at hitbox.

That's the latest video Gideon uploaded. Let me know if that works and I'll just copy the rest of the links. :)

I know. I had five seconds of music in one video and copyright-bot blocked it.
I'd argue fair use if I thought the video was worth arguing about, but it was just a personal video to show a friend.

A double project!



Working on two versions of the same game poses an interesting challenge. Both have similar, but not identical text. Each version also has its unique technical issues.
This is in no way related to the project of the SNES version by AGTP.

Better resolution, alpha on fonts, and VWF = extremely sexy visuals. Looking forward too seeing more of the DS version as well!

I've been doing a lot of GB hacking over the past year. Much more so than my usual NES stomping grounds especially when considering the size and scope of my hacks. Anyhow, I bypassed the compression and am loading various graphics and data uncompressed in the expanded ROM space. I will be working on hacking the names next and will be doing 2 displays hacks to accommodate the menus.

Always loved Destiny of an Emperor on the original NES. Heard there was a Gameboy version but never gave it a go... cool to see someone messing with it!  :thumbsup:

Destiny of an Emperor for the GB! I heard it was a Very different kind of game from the NES versions. All in all looks like you're doing a fantastic job so far with it, I am quite excited to play it when it was fully translated.

(Love the avatar by the way, Maad Mikkelsen plays an Incredible Hannibal, a wonderful show, all in all, great acting, all around.)

As long as people are hacking games that haven't been hacked before, I'll just leave this here:

I was gonna cancel this hack, but Vanya encouraged me to keep going. There are tiles in Code Name Viper that won't fit into Rolling Thunder's tiles because the hero in Rolling Thunder is too small, but I'll make the best of it and I made some bootlegged graphics. I'll most likely post a video soon... :D

I think it'll make a good hack. For some reason I've always liked CNV more than RT, so I'm all for this.

Not a romhack but an actual engine I'm working on:

It's Resident Evil: Survivor remade in classic style. The third picture is a test I made with rooms imported from RE1, while the last one is of a RE1 Saturn exclusive enemy named "Tick" (ignore Chimera's description).
