Maybe a silly idea, but a hack for Oracle of Ages/Seasons that allows to equip two or more rings at once (as long as they are not conflicting, like the Form Rings) would be interesting.

I think someone should take Klonoa's Wii remake's script and English dub and slap it into the PS1 version.

You don't already earn that ability in the game? The game makes it sound like you can.

Nope, it gives you Ringbox L2 and L3, which allows you to carry 3 or 5 rings, but you can still only equip one at a time. And some rings are quite useless on their own.

Here's a stupid idea akin to a certain poster asking for random games to be reworked into random properties.  ;)

Someone should hack Mendel Palace and call it "Mandel Palace", as in Howie Mandel.  All the stages an stuff would be references to the things he's known for, such as Bobby's World, being a germaphobe, and Deal or No Deal.  But I don't the NES would be capable of replicating his perfectly bald head, though...

Wouldn't mind seeing someone do a title screen edit on The Golden Compass for GBA so it reads Northen Lights like the book it was based on, instead of the film.

it's not the official way and relies on luck\randomized placement of bears. USC

Hack Ideas
- Geronimo Stilton themed Hacks of Mad City (NES) and River City Ransom (NES)
the Mad City/Geronimo Stilton overhaul hack will focus on Geronimo rescuing his family (Benjamin, Pandora, Trap, Grandpa Softpaw and Thea) from a corrupt media organization
the RCR/Geronimo Stilton overhaul hack will focus on Thea Stilton and Benjamin rescuing a scientist that's held hostage by a profit-savvy mafia

- Link's Awakening overhaul hack themed after Redwall

A good idea for a hack

A full on conversion hack of Mega Man X based on the cult toon film "Sebastian Star Bear: The First Mission"
The idea is let's make this a fanon continuity of Sebastian's adventures that takes place 23 years after his first mission
Where Sebastian was nearly assassinated by a corrupt animal rights leader who want to harm bears for gain of her crackpot warped views on 'animal rights' let alone save them
but a Doctor revived him but installed arsenal to aid him outside of his super strength to free the bears from being used and abused by the evil/corrupt animal rights group that never practiced what they preach (when Sebastian discovered garbage disposal bins loaded with rotting puppy and kitten corpses courtesy of said group)

You know what with the World Cup on at the moment, why doesn't someone hack one of the older FIFA / ISS / Pro Evo games (any football game on any system really it could be NES Soccer if you so wished.) so that it has all the correct teams with proper player names and strip colours.

Funny you mention this. Because, back in the ages SNES and PS1 were popular here in Brazil, we would see a lot of pirated Winning Eleven and International Superstar Soccer with the name "Copa 96" or "Campeonato Brasileiro" or even "Brazucas Futebol".

Trust me, soccer piracy is still a damn bomb in this hellhole down here.

It is now called the "Bomba Patch" and it has gone as far as the XBox 360 PES games now.

In return of dumb ideas: Make Charged Beam/Difussion Missiles in Super Metroid, Metroid Fusion and Metroid Zero Mission pull in Small X Parasites or refills (Energy and Ammo), like in Prime

That would probably be best suited to an SMB3 hack.
It would take a fair amount of ASM work, but I would totally enjoy playing it.

Why? SMB1 has the same level-to-level progression, similar "Princess is in another castle" ordeal, the restriction to mushroom/flower/star, same timer/world/score display, inability to scroll the screen left, and closest to the same physics. If we exclude stage clear bonuses and vehicle levels, which I can accept, it would ask for less amount of work than SMB3. SMB3 has levels that auto-scroll, but those are only vehicle levels in SML anyway. Only thing SMB3 has going for without extensive hacking is more boss and enemy variety.

SMB3 also has lots more space without having to expand anything or shift anything around.
The power ups beyond the mushroom/fire flower/starman can simply be excluded.
I think the physics are superior but still close enough.
And not doing the vehicle levels would greatly reduce my interest in such a project.

There are only four worlds in SML, compared to the eight in SMB.
If an enemy touches you with fire power up in SMB3, you will not shrink whereas in SML/SMB you will.
There are only two vehicle levels. Trivial enough to exclude if it's going to take an average hacker to bring this idea to light and I will not complain.
Going by default physics, SMB is closest due to no running meter. That has no place in a SML conversion.

You'll shrink if you're playing the Japanese version.
