i got an idea but i need some one good with psx hacking

in ace combat 2 there were several non-playable aircraft wich became popular later in the seris one of them was the jf-2a. most of us at the ace combat web site don't think it is possible to make them playable (but they no nothing of romhacking) could somone help me out? you can replace another jet if you need to.

It actually runs at the same speed as before, just not choppy. It might be that they took the display code from the Japanese version and copied it back into the game and tweaked a few other things to make it run well. And my monitor does display at up to 85Hz, but not at the resolution I'm running, and LCD images just look trashy (I'm really interested in OLED displays though).

i would suggest lowering your resolution until you find one that lets you step up from 60 Hz. what monitor and resolution are you using, anyway? my old monitor from 6 years ago could easily do 1024x768x32x85. seriously, once you switch away from it so you know the difference, 60 Hz CRT looks like total crap and almost hurts your eyes.

as far as LCDs looking trashy, you clearly aren't looking at the right kinds of LCDs :P especially if you look at a hi-res one with cleartype... wow, there's just no comparison.

Oh god it makes me cry when I look at a 60hz setup. 60hz ruins your eyes.

I run it at 1600 by 1200. The thing is, I want to make it go at 85 Hz when I'm running ZSNES (I set it to 640 by 480 fullscreen), but stay at 60 the rest of the time. Is there a program somewhere that can set that up, or a cheap CRT that displays 1600x1200x32 at 120 Hz? Also, I've looked at the most expensive LCD monitors (including a cleartype running at 2048x1152) and plasma TVs, and they just don't look as good as my CRT. They wash out the colors a bit, and they don't display black properly.

finding ANY monitor with good refresh rates is hard, let alone once you've cranked up the resolution etc.

I don't know if this one could do the job, but it's a decent monitor

And your eyes will rest easy with a flicker-free 2048x1536 resolution at 80Hz.

WANT IT NOW.

Shame it's five hundred bucks plus tax plus extra tax. I think I'll Froogle it.

yeah, it's a shame people really aren't making many new CRTs anymore, I'm getting one myself, it looks to be a beaut, hopefully I can find it cheap also.

I was asking because it had the ESRB rating instead of the European (PEGC?) rating.

That cover art has the European SNES box art and it has no ESRB rating. There's no US release.

I have an Idea could somone who is good with psx asm modify ace combat 2 to replace the f-16 with the jf-2a.

Gemini

What about hacking Castlevania SOTN for Psx with part of the bonuses included in the Saturn version? Like a playable Maria or the 2 new areas. :O
