Hello all... as my username implies, I am the original creator of the MAME "Simpsons Tapper" hack.
I wrote a note recently on one of the YT videos of the hack, but I thought I'd get a thread started here as well:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R7HH3XHdcms&ab_channel=mameplus
As I stated there, the original hack was basically just changing all of the graphics (characters to Simpsons characters, and Bud logos to "Duff").
So the list of things I'd like to get finished up to a "finished ROM" would be:
* Figure out the locations of the skin shading for each character again, and set them correctly for each character.
* Get rid of the rest of the Budweiser references to Duff... the biggest one being the Bud logo behind Moe & Bart in the bonus round. The issue with this is the the Turaco software didn't let you move around the editing blocks, and the logos blocks are NOT sequential in the ROM, so, it was REALLY hard to try to parse out like a puzzle what pieces go where in that logo. I might try to take another stab at it though. Also minorly the "BAR" that is seen in "reverse" from the inside on levels 1 & 2 to say "MOES" instead.
* Figure out where/how in the ROM the music is stored, and change the "oh! suzanna" background music to The Simpsons theme.
If there are any wizards on the boards here who are particularly good at fishing out ROM locations of things like that, any help is appreciated and will be recognized.

One of the other things that was also figured out at that time along with the character skin tone was which "characters" appeared in which levels/rounds, and I believe we made it so there wasn't "duplicate" characters in a round, vs. normal tapper where they repeat the same characters in the same bar.
