This is a bit of a nitpick for such an amazing game, but the "cursor move" sound in Star Ocean can get incredibly annoying, especially considering all the time spent customizing characters in the menus. It'd be wonderful to have a patch compatible with the translation that would change that sound to something less high pitched/more subtle.

There's the learnable Rage hack - https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/1371/

Could something like this be applied to the GBA version? Or the code for the two versions are too different?

Super Smash Bros. Melee (GameCube): A hack that will do all this to it:

Restore all the missing Japanese dialogues for Fox, Falco & Mewtwo.
Restore the missing Tamagon, Mario & Yoshi and Samus Unmasked trophies.
Restore the Japanese versions of the Motion Sensor Bomb & Topi trophies.
Rename the Motion-Sensor Bomb trophy to be called Proximity Mine once again.

Resident Evil 2 Dual Shock (Sony PlayStation): With those Complete Disassembly tools that got released a while ago, I would like to see someone restore the original Licker cutscene that shows a head falling down to a pool of blood.

NES Boy

Speaking of Super Smash Bros. hacks, how about hacking the N64 game to allow us to choose the full range of alternate colors? Instead of being tied to the C-buttons, make it so that they cycle through the color choices instead. That way, we could freely use...


  • Mario's Green Team color scheme.
  • Donkey Kong's Green Team color scheme.
  • Samus's Blue Team color scheme.
  • Yoshi's two color schemes exclusive to the Yoshi Team (Pink and Purple).
  • Kirby's Green Team color scheme.
  • Captain Falcon's Green Team and Blue Team color schemes.

SCD

That's a cool idea, I like it.

Other things that I want to see be done to this game is:

Restore Fox's two missing Japanese dialogues.
Restore the original attack sound effects.
Restore the original beam sword sound effects.

Castlevania 1 and 3 ideas:

  • Remove timer and lives, but checkpoints are more spaced and marked.
  • Instead of 1-ups, you are rewarded with full health and magic.
  • Hearts are replaced by a 24x8 Magic bar which holds 24MP and slowly refills at the rate of 1 point every 10 or 5 seconds. As such, subweapons now have uses 1, 2, 4, 8 and 16 for knife, axe, holy water, cross and stopwatch respectively. Hearts can be still obtained to regain 4 points of magic.
  • SRAM Saving and Easy Mode (ends in 1 loop, enemies and bosses causes less damage and knockback is removed).
  • Subweapon multipliers allows two to be shot at once and, at III, changes the behavior of them, with stopwatch unaffected until the third multiplier. The behavior change is: Knife goes through multiple enemies, axe flies farther, holy water causes the fire to float up and farther slowly, cross  destroys most enemies, stopwatch stops time for twice longer.

I'd be amazed if someone did a MSU-1 hack of the Maui Mallard game. The soundtrack from the PC game itself is amazing.

Bonkers!

A hack/conversion of GB Super Mario Bros. DX for the NES (without the printery bits, obviously). It would include the Japanese SMB 2 in its entirety. Probably one heck of a project, but I'm sure that there are quite a few peeps who would love to see such a hack. I know I would.

Uncensored SNES Lethal Enforcers would also be cool.

So, I have this spoof hack idea for taking "Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!" and converting it into "Weird Al's Punch Out!!". Now, before I get too far in, let me just say I am in no way endorsing beating up Weird Al (at least in real life). I just thought it would be really cool to create a hack based on his many years of work. Basically, you'd still be Little Mac, and you'd be fighting various personas of Al and various side characters within his works. Here are some ideas:

Characters:
Doc Louis: Prince or Coolio would be obvious choices, but I think R.J. Fletcher (the bad guy from UHF who runs Channel 8 in that movie) might work better with the original sprites.
Glass Joe: I thought we might base this off Al's appearance in "Living With A Hernia". I suppose it's either this or try to pull from "Genius In France" somehow.
King Hippo: "Fat" Al-who else?
Don Flamenco: White & Nerdy Al?
Bald Bull: Bald Al (from the "Gump" video)
Great Tiger: Gandhi II (segment from UHF)
Super Macho Man: Conan the Librarian (segment from UHF)
Mike Tyson: "Rambo Fantasy" Al (from UHF)
Mario: Harvey the Wonder Hamster or Dr. Demento

Text:
Naturally, we'd pull relevant lines from the source works and use those in the inter-round breaks-"Fat" Al would say "I'm too much man for you to take!", Gandhi II would say "Gimme a steak, medium rare!", etc.

Music:
Rather than just change the pre-fight cues, I'd like to create full chiptune versions of the relevant songs and have them play throughout the fight. Also, we should try to work "Polkamon" in there-perhaps during the jogging scenes.

With the recent released undub hacks for the PSX ports of Mega Man 8 & Mega Man X4, I would like to see someone make ones for the Saturn ports of both games.

I also would like to see someone make undub hacks for these Mega Man games as well:

Mega Man Legends (Including restore the original magazine item.)
Mega Man Legends 2
The Misadventures of Tron Bonne
Mega Man Powered Up (Including restore Oil Man's original colors.)
Mega Man Maverick Hunter X

It's time to make the megaman 1 remake. Keep the same stage as the old bosses and add two extras. It would add a castle and a stage proper for the revenge of the bosses. Megaman2 engine.

Reassign the color selection in Street Fighter ALPHA/ZERO 3 Upper for the GBA.

I think it's a nuisance to press L+B to get the canon color (A/Z-ISM punch)

Current:
A-ISM, Punch: L+B
A-ISM, Kick: R+A
X-ISM, Punch: L
X-ISM, Kick: R
V-ISM, Punch: B
V-ISM, Kick: A

Proposed:
A-ISM, Punch: A
A-ISM, Kick: B
X-ISM, Punch: L
X-ISM, Kick: L+B
V-ISM, Punch: R
V-ISM, Kick: R+A

Vanya is working on a fangame that's going to be a 8-bit demake of Powered Up.

Has this not been done already..?  Melee is one of the few GameCube games to be extensively hacked; there might even be appropriate tools already.  Then again, altering randomly-acquired trophies would be a rather strange change to make.

Not the first time that's come up in this thread.  Michael Giacchino went on to earn Oscar nominations in later years.  And the PC version comes from that awkward era from which programs are unlikely to be easily run under modern versions of Windows.
This signature is an illusion and is a trap devisut by Satan. Go ahead dauntlessly! Make rapid progres!

So there is something I want most fans of Megaman X4's attention on because it turned out that Megaman X4 English Version actually has many missing dubbed lines!

Now the question is would someone be willing to do a fandub of the missing lines itself?

Oh my genius, YES!! PoweredUp needs an undub almost as badly as 8 did. I kinda like the dubs for Legends & Legends 2, but hearing the Jap voices with subs would be an interesting venture.

Speaking of Megaman Dubs, there has been a youtube group that has gone out of their way to redub Megaman X4, and it does sound 100x better.

Hello

I wonder if someone translation game BOYSBE2ND on PSX ?



FAST6191

You are making a translation request and the only thing you offer other than the game name and platform is a shot of the name entry screen?

Is that the sole extent of things that need translating in it or something?
