thanks for the explaination.
I actually tried to copy the section starting from 0x030000 over myself.
But since the file in the beta was a lillte bigger and I have no clue about pointers and stuff, this was doomed to fail
Nice to see it work now.
I think we can keep the expanded rom since people here are interested in mofifiy the game more than just a plain uncut hack I intened
Would it make sense and/or help to expand it to full 16Mbit? I dont know if 12Mbit could make any trouble with emualtors like canoe?
Also thanks for looking into the gun problem. that would be one more issue gone from the list.
Regarding the MSU.
It is funny you came up with this.
My brother sended me some links to orchestrated Wof3D Music the other day.
After that I walked the dog and on the way I thought well a MSU hack would be a nice option.
Since I have no clue how to do such a hack and I need to rely much on the community in terms of deeper hacking,
I didnt wanted to bring it up yet.
Mut yes, I would support a MSU hack.
I have never looked closer to the MSU stuff, I just know that it makes it possible to play PCM files instead of the games music.
What else does it do?
But since MSU is not real uncut related and also MSU does not work on every device/Emu, it should serve as a additional patch for those who want to use it. Will be for sure a very cool feature. I wont stop you. About the music PCMs, Can they be exchanged by the user or do we need to find fitting music for it already?
Offtopic: Jurassic Park SNES needs also MSU
Also since you mentioned there was a bit room left for additional GFX. Do we have space to add a few 8x8 letter with Umlauts?
I checked the Fonts in the game and there are signs like brackets and stuff and it seems that most of that is not used in the game.
I just could redraw a few of them to be a Umlaut like Ü, ü, Ö, ö, Ä, ä, ß
It would be easy to do but it is also a bit messy. It would be more professionel to add in additional signs to choose from.
Regarding the sound files.
ShadowOne and SCD gave already the correct links.
But for the pure uncut hack I am looking for just a few changes /additions if it is even possible.
I have a list for possible changes but first it would make sense to see what can be done for the sounds in general.
You have a lot of ideas and want to try out stuff. I really don't want to stop you. ^^
However, most of the stuff you mentined in your last post are actually not really uncut related.
It would change the appearance of the game and would be modding.
The two spaces for example in the text was done for a reason. I want to keep that in the pure uncut.
Same goes for the BJ hair. In regards of this, please try the game with BSNES, Color Emulation on and Scanlines added.
It gets like 1 or 2 tones darker with that. I am not sure if you want it even darker. Since this game was designed for a system running on a CRT we should not give to much attention to the standard poppy bright VGA emulation output.
Your ideas go more towards a SNES/PC conversation hack in general. I am sure a lot of people are interested in playing this so I think it would make sense to split the current patch and have a SNES/PC conversation hack stand alone curated by you. Some feature will be present in both versions, some just in one or the other. What do you think?
I also have a few ideas for cool additions in a SNES/PC conversation hack.
In the case that we can add new sprites or manipulate them or even add new Levels/Episodes, I would like to bring Gretel Grosse in the game and give her a 3 Level Episode after the Übermutant. But she would get new unique sprites and not just a pink version of Hans.
Also like Shadowhazard said already, it would be nice to keep the rats.
I would like to keep both, Dogs and Rats in the game because they make both sense if you place them correctly.
In the first SNES level for example the rats make no sense. This is not about Bio Weapons or Experiments there.
But later with Schabbs and the Übermutant, they make very well sense and are cool.
Also with additional rom space it should be possible to add different mission briefing screens. Right now we have only one. He speaks always to the President and that makes not much sense. So he is flying always back to the US, gets orders and flys back to Germany, not very efficient XD The PC has some material for this I think.
There is a lot of stuff possible but this also depends on how much time people can or are willing to spend on it.
That is why I try to keep it comprehensible for now. With having it a bit organized, chances are higher to get more help when needed
