ROM Hacks: Rock n' Roll Racing Hack - version 16
« on: January 20, 2020, 06:15:46 pm »

Update By: Ti_

Rock n' Roll Racing for Sega Genesis/Mega Drive -   updated romhack of a cult game after several years.


Finally, version 16 is completed and available for all.

It's completes many aspects that was not finished in version 15.

Added many multiplayer modes for up to 6 players, similar to old 'Tournament Edition' romhack.

This version was priority targeted on quality, not quantity:
there's a lot changes which greatly improves graphics, gameplay, adds new features.

It was passed a lot of time, to find and solve many things, many people played/tested and gives help and opinions and discuss on new changes.


Are you ready to challenge?

Was looking at the RHDN Project Page and it says;

ROM / ISO Information:
    Rock n' Roll Racing - v15_alpha_r7 (Hack).bin (GoodGen 3.21)
    MD5: 8F0C169B27355AB1F43ECF5CE921C10C
    SHA1: 56A1DF4B161CABC904B8B33E0AA6562E05605E6D

What the heck is this?

It's a copy of the Rock n' Roll Racing rom that has already been patched to version 15 from the looks of it. Looks like it's included pre-patched to version 15 in the GoodGen 3.21 set.

This is going to receive less play than it deserves due to the base ROM requirement. If patching directly from the older version of the hack to the newer one is really necessary, then the old patch should be included with the new and a more commonly available ROM should be specified as the base to patch first.

It's not difficult to find GoodGen for those who don't already have it, but the patching process needs to be easier to maximize the playerbase.

While there is nothing wrong with doing that, it would have made more sense to patch against the original.

Well anyone can update the romhacking information/files, providing there is a legitimate reason in doing so. So in this case, include/replace the IPS to patch the original rom. I'm curious in trying this hack out, so I might do that myself.

GoodGen 3.21 isn't too tough to find, but yes, it would be nice if this mod worked on a standard copy of Rock 'n Roll Racing.

Can we talk about how nuts this mod is, though? The planets spin in the character select screen, more characters have been added to the cast, Larry Huffman no longer cancels out the soundtrack when he talks, up to six cars can race at once... it's a pretty significant expansion. Heck, you can listen to the original soundtrack with lyrics if you have a Sega CD.

I don't know how the hacker managed to do all this, or why he thought it was so important, but it's nevertheless really impressive. It makes me wish I liked Rock 'n Roll Racing more than I did, because for devoted fans, this hack has got to be incredible.

Instead of needing this:

Quote
ROM / ISO Information:
    Rock n' Roll Racing - v15_alpha_r7 (Hack).bin (GoodGen 3.21)
    MD5: 8F0C169B27355AB1F43ECF5CE921C10C
    SHA1: 56A1DF4B161CABC904B8B33E0AA6562E05605E6D

You can apply this old patch here RRR_Hack_v15_alpha_r7.7z in:

Quote
ROM / ISO Information:
    Rock n' Roll Racing (USA).md (No-Intro)
    MD5: 530C58317B5626FA15B77ADAB0AACC9D
    SHA1: 9793572B6D64C85C1ADD0721C3BE388AC18777D6

And then apply the current patch.
It works.

The hack is pretty incredible yes. The only thing missing is sram save, because passwords suck ^^ This complaint means I'm playing through it!
