Take the levels from Super Mario Bros Special for the PC-88 and put them in a more playable format e.g.

A.) in the original NES Super Mario Bros

B.) in SMB in Super Mario All Stars

or C.) SMB DX for gameboy (which has the most features like simultaneous multiplayer etc.)

also any extra levels from Vs. Super Mario Bros could be added too.

has anyone attempted to insert the SMB3 e-reader levels into an NES SMB3 rom?

Convert the SMB3 sound effects into SNES format and put them in SMAS. While SMW sounds fit perfectly in SMW, they certainly are NOT well-placed being in SMB1, SMB2, SMB2j, or SMB3.

I have a suggestion.

In the japanese versions of Megaman Zero for GBA (Rockman Zero, originally), there's alotta blood when enemies are killed by slashing weapons, like Z-Saber, Triple Rod, Chain Rod or the Shield when it's charged and thrown. And it's red blood, apparently shed in large quantities. It was one of the reasons the game in Japan has censorship of 15+ i think.

But in the American and European versions, all blood present was removed due to censorship in the occident. Due to that censorship, the game is classified for all ages around here.

Here is the difference between them. Left is japanese, and Right is American or European:

In that case, that part in Megaman Zero 1 is the only one of all series that has a little blood spitting out of their mouth.

It would be very sweet if someone made a hack for the American / European versions that restore blood that was censored. Just like someone made blood come back (even partially) in Mortal Kombat 1 of SNES. I think it's not too much difficult and burdensome to do.

It got into my mind a few weeks ago to try turning some random space shooter into a sort of 2D StarFox.  What might be a good game to hack for this idea?
Well, he's just this guy, you know?

Blood is pretty low on my priority list but I wouldn't mind seeing retranslations of the Rockman Zero games, it's not so much that Capcom screwed up the translations than it is they gave us boring, lifeless dialogue. Someone over at MMX Online translated the scripts before the games came out, and those scripts were far better than the official translations, unfortunately I no longer have them and all that site's content is in limbo since they decided pretty site redesigns were more important than actual content. ::)

Edit: Speaking of European, what retarded monkey came up with the idea of changing the European titlescreen logo for MMZ2-4? Gah, they're horrible, couldn't they have just reused the US logo?

Yep. Official english translations of Rockman Zero sucks. I got an japanese to english fan-translated script of Rockman Zero 4. Much, much better. I've used it when I was translating this game to portuguese.

The european logos sucks even more than the translation. That really sucked. And that's one of my reasons to use only American versions in the translation of the game.

Plus, they removed a song in the ending of RMZ4 and changed for the same one, but without the japanese voices.

Well I just thought of this but I think it would be cool, I got this ideal from Final Fantasy V.nes witch has terry from dragon warrior monsters as the main character, the thing is it's not in English, but if you load it up the whole layout of the game resembles a zelda game tho the battles, and everthing are still like final fantasy games, take another final fantasy game, and make it into a zelda rpg that would be cool. edit I just thought of a name for it you could call it, Zelda 3 The RPG Game.

Then the other day I had a dream I was playing final fantasy mystic quest on my snes, I played all the way through the game until I got to where it says the end, but then it sad just kidding we present you a new quest, and I started over on a different map, weird then I awoke, and bumped the power button on my snes before I had a chance to save it, then I realized I was dreaming.

They did that with a lot of Mega Man games in Europe during a brief period. X8 for sure, possibly X7. And some of the Battle Network titles. What's strange though... The GBA Battle Network 5 has that weird logo, but they used the US one for the DS version IIRC. I don't think they've used the odd logo recently.

you could even put it in the other two Zero games, just a thought.

One thing I would love is remake the gba harvest moon with the snes graphics. They are SO much better.
Or add the stuff from the gba harvest moon to the snes harvest. Either way I would love it and play it forever and a day.
I was following a fan project harvest moon but that basically died(At least for now).

u're right. the engine of those games are very similar. so, the process made in one of them is the same in the other sequels. and i think it's not too much of a hard work to do.

comparing japanese version with the american one would give a beginning. i just hope it's not something that needs ASM or ARM7 to do.

how about this: the Famicom Wars, Super Famicom Wars, and MAINLY Gameboy Wars games graphically brought up to Advance Wars DS standards. They would have the same units, maps, and COs, but the graphical appearance would be a little more bearable.

AWDS map tile graphics suck.  AW2 are better. :)

Not such a bad idea.  Someone should try and translate Super Famicom Wars.  :)

Lesse...
How about a MM1 hack using the graphics from Magical Doropie? I think that'll be pretty cool... ^^'

sure, absolutely, I don't know a ton about the series so I wouldn't know, thanks for setting me straight, but yeah, it would be cool for sure.

Hiya I've just been directed here by SpikeMan after making a number of Ideas posts elsewhere anyway I have some cool Hack ideas I'd like to share, I would like some people (Experts, I could dosome small bits but not much yet at my level) to help participate in making some of these hacks:

1. I would like someone to create a hack of maybe Super Mario World 1 or 2 and use a combinaton of storylines used in the Mario Bros Cartoon on Kids Sky TV Channel, before you say *WTF* Check out the programme and get back to me. Also to create different graphics in the game to look more like the cartoons interpretation of Bowser & Peach and also to implement different graphics for areas etc to look more like the cartoon.

2. Next thing is to make another SMW Hack in which Daisy is the kidnapped victim in the land of Sarasa instead of Peach or maybe even Daisy & Peach are the victims and Toad even... and Bowser plans on taking over both the Mushroom Kingdom and Sarasa Land...more ideas to follow on this... ;D

3. The last idea for now is to make a hack into a game like the Final Fantasy series preferably one on PSX but a later SNES game will do or even another game of it's nature. The hack idea is to make the game into a Chronicles of Narnia game, I love the story and the recent film of it and thought'd be a wonderful idea to make a game for it (Not the crappy PS2 one) and to use the battle system etc used in FF games for the Narnian world. Of course alot of changes would have to be made like inserting a whole new bunch of graphics for all of the mystical characters, lands etc used in the film, I would love to play as Peter etc and defeat the white witch in a FF style battle with people fighting in the background and obviously the whole storyline would have to be changed as well as so many other things but if there was enough people working on it, it could be done... ;D

Thanks! 8)

also this topic should be made into a sticky for sure! ;D

hmm. Idea 2 looks GREAT. Idea one, sure if you love the cartoon, but to me, it's such a painful thing, it had no affiliation with nintendo.... it just seems so wrong.

Idea 3 sounds great but also sounds so ambitious that it might not even be possible, especially on a PSX game, you might be able to pull it off on a SNES game but it would still be a butt load of work.

not that you needed my opinion, but whatever. Great ideas though man, keep em coming.

Thanks alot yeah they are great ideas I must say, GOD! ;D You've got a mastermind here I tell yah!  :D I'll definitely have more ideas without a doubt but if someone could please help make an attempt at some of the above ideas that'd be wicked! Thanks alot! And yeah Idea 2 is wicked I personally think eehh ;D so that one would be cool if it was done and No 3 is a BIG project but if enough experts had the motivation and actually liked the story etc like me I'm sure it could be done, maybe it's just me being the optimist that I am! And Idea No1 would be cool with the cartoon style graphics and storylines because it'd give the whole game and characters a big refreshing lift and would appeal to other peeps!

Thanks to anyone who helps with these! >:D

EDIT- Oh yeah and PLEASE turn this topic into a sticky one please! ::)

I was thinking and this movie came on alien 3 it came out in 1997 when the nes game alien 3 came out in 1992. Someone could make an up to date hack of it. I don't really care too much for the movie or the game myself but someone might. Alien Syndrome is a much better game and it has hacking potential too.

don't take it personally man, you don't find a lot of people just picking up your ideas unless it could fit into something they are already doing or is a slight addition to a series they are already working on.

Most of the time if you want a hack you have to do it yourself, and if it is an ambitious hack, you ALWAYS have to do it yourself.

not trying to be a pill, just letting you know how things usually work around here.
