Well I didn't know that. Besides, I didn't see it in the database. I just responded to what somebody asked about in this thread. I don't have a massive interest in this.
I wasn't being rude, and I didn't mean to come across that way. You helped out a lot and I'm sure Krustentier7 is grateful. I was just posting more information on the hack they asked for.
Edit 1 -
Feel free to tell us how to do it this then, "Metroid [mOTHER].ips" + "Metroid Saving 0.4.notdone.ips" does not work here, no matter what i try, or which order, expanded or not.
Does it actually work for you, glitch free, as in confirmed?
And if yes, could you create a patch from it & share please?
You want the mOTHER graphics on top of everything else, right? I'll see what I can do.
Edit 2 - It's done! Jesus, that took forever. I'll upload a patch here soon, but I will not
upload it to the site without Snarfblam and dACE's permissions.
There's a couple more changes I think that should be made before it's considered "fully finished," though.
Firstly, the save button combination. You guys know how in Metroid: Rogue Dawn, you can save at any time by pausing, then pushing Select on controller 1, then also on controller 1, you press the A Button, and the B Button simultaneously? I think something similar should be done for Metroid mOTHER. Right now, it uses Pause, then on controller 2 you push D-Pad Up, then the A Button. To go along with the "ease of access" philosophy, I really think that it should all be on controller 1.
I was also wondering if Missile pickups should be a full 5 at a time instead of just 2, but would that make things too
Edit 3 - I call it Metroid mOTHER: Galactic Edition.http://www.bwass.org/bucket/Metroid_mOTHER_Galactic_Edition-3.zip
(The old v2 link has been removed; only v3 remains, which fixes some graphical glitches and makes saving happen entirely on Controller 1)
I'm no super hacker; all I did was make patches and apply them, and pray! LMAO. So to clear up any confusion, I'll outline my process here:
- Applied Metroid mOTHER to a Metroid I ROM
- Applied Metroid + Saving v0.4 NotDone to another Metroid I ROM
- Applied Metroid + Saving v0.3 to yet another Metroid I ROM
- Incorporated nesrocks' Low Energy Alarm (10 NRG or less) and Full Energy mods to the Metroid + Saving v0.4 ROM
- Made a patch for Metroid + Saving by using v0.3 as the "original, unmodified ROM" and v0.4 (With nesrocks' enhancements) as the "new, modified ROM"
- Applied the above patch to Metroid mOTHER
- Did some rudimentary testing
I'm glad it worked. I pretty much went on instinct here and could've wound up with nothing to show for it. The whole game has not
been tested, but everything seems alright.
