I would love to create a Secret of Evermore hack according to a video game theory I created to that game...In short it's about the following:
Square changed Secret of Evermore in the last weeks of development because it was too child unfriendly and among other things contained the hero killing humans. The evil humans the hero killed were the four Podunkers who conquered the world Evermore. So that they don't have to change too much stuff they came up with the idea to just change dialogue and insert evil twins into the game. They kept the scenes which showed the podunkers are evil and said its the evil robots.
My hack would be to "revert" these changes and with hardly any work create a completely different game.
Unfortunately I dunno where I'd even start... Is there a guide on how to hack SNES games? How hard is it to change complete scenes? Are there tools to easily change dialogue? For most of the part I'd only have to change minor dialogue and some make graphics invisible and skip some events. If that could be done easily the hack could be done in a week...
For example in the whole Prehistoria arc only a graphic of Fireeyes and Strongheart would need to be removed and some dialogue lines needed to be changed.
In Antiqua only one grahpic of Hector needed to be changed and some dialogue lines.
In Gothica only one event needs to be skipped and some dialogue lines need to be changed.
Omnitopia would need the most changes but again only some graphics, some dialogue and so on.
This hack would make the game totally different with hardly any changes
