Magic Kid Googoo Graphics Copy Protection?
« on: February 14, 2017, 08:19:17 am »
So! It's been a while since I left though
But everyone know that Magic Kid Googoo has been dumped.
If you don't, [size=78%]http://forums.lostlevels.org/viewtopic.php?t=3523[/size] That link is a refresh
Anyway, I tried to hack the game and change all the Korean to English.
Though you know I don't know korean. But I decided to do it what I know. like Pause.
But after I change it, the game won't display the Zemina Text, the Korean version of the Logo, and Staff Credids are messed up, And you can't play the game at all.
So, I wondered, how to get around it?
Until than, BYE!

Maybe you accidentally changed an important part of the game's programming.  It's especially likely if you inserted English text that wasn't exactly the same length as the Korean text, but no one here can tell from this limited amount of information.

The other likely possibility is that the game has some sort of checksum protection and can detect if changes have been made.
This signature is an illusion and is a trap devised by Satan. Go ahead dauntlessly! Make rapid progres!

Well I only changed the graphics so..
And after bringing it back, it works propertly
So it is a copy protection.

Hmm, if you want, try redoing your pause graphic but test your progress after every couple tiles you edit. Could be a chance that only a certain tile is causing the problem and triggering that behavior.
Like Super Mario Land? Then you'll love my first completed Rom Hack: Maniac on the Run!

Uhmm..? Fceux-r3335.
- Edited Pause tiles. No obvious errors.
- Went to ROM 0x40010-0x60010 and changed all to 0xFF. Seems playable.

Am I missing something? ^^

Although anyone should be able to debug this game since fceux now supports it. :shrug:

..."Emucr"... site has a pre-built binary to use. Google "fceux r3335" to get there directly.

It doesn't need to be installed. You just download it, unzip the archive if it's in one, then run it directly.
