That's right. If the Crystal Ball does not appear, a special item will appear in its place, and because you have to finish the level normally, you skip to the boss, and you get the Bad End. I thought it would be easy to find the single variable (presumably) responsible for that, but it's always easier said than done, right? I didn't have time look into how we could cancel the 2nd player requirement.
No worries.  ;) Any idea on how to move the secret door so that it is in the exact same spot as the crystal ball? I can't seem to find the location where it's stored to move it.

It's been a while since my last update, but progress has been going well. Almost all the levels are complete. A new font has been added, and rings have replaced the clovers for the bonus levels. I experimented with the colours, and decided to go with the first option. Now it's time to go back and refine older levels, as well as beta testing  ;D

Progress has been steady since my last update. I have been beta testing the levels and noting bugs I have experienced. I have gone through all the levels, and now it's time to go back and fix the bugs. I also have a few changes I'd like to make, but don't know where to start. Some include changing the speed of the player when a sneaker is obtained, removing the 2-player requirement for beating the game, and changing when the extra life is given to a player while defeating the boss. For now, level B2 acts as a way to tell the player to have 2-players before the boss.

Spoiler:

If anyone has any ideas on how to make these changes, please let me know. It's much appreciated!  :)

Sorry for the thread bump, I'm just wondering how your progress is going? ;)

Thanks!  :) Trying to work on it as much as I can to release it by the end of this year!  ;D

Progress is going swell! I can now share one of the extra features that I've been working on. As far as I know, this has never been done in a Bubble Bobble NES ROM hack, or at least compared to the other ones uploaded on this site. I've played a bit of other hacks, but one of the problems I had was that they used the same passwords as the original, so you could easily skip to the end of the game. Where's the fun in that? I've now made the game use entirely different passwords. Below you'll find the password for level 1:
Spoiler:
As you can see, not only is the password different, but that password doesn't appear in the original game at all  :thumbsup:

Hello all! As promised, this hack has now been officially released! :) I'm going to upload it to ROMhacking.net soon, but for now, you can download it in the description in the video down below:

I also have created box art for it, so I could port it to the NES and SNES classic soon. Enjoy, and have fun! :-)

Will this be the final version? Or will there be a final revision that removes the 2P requirement for the good ending?

As it turns out, removing the 2P restriction is quite difficult, way past my hacking abilities, so this should be the final version, unless a bunch of bugs are found, but I beta tested the heck out of this thing, so hopefully there won't be  ;)
