NES Ms. Pacman, but modified so that on plugging a Four Score, player 1 is Ms. Pacman and the other 4 players are the ghosts. I'm assuming the Four Score can be plugged on the 2nd controller port, though I don't know if it could allow up to 5 players in this way (I think it's locked at 4 total?).

According to Ethereal Games, the Game Genie code M2GA-CA6W gives infinite time.

I've tried "infinite time" gg-code and it only worked for the first four levels..

You can do that easily using cheats.
Mega Man 7 > 3 > 2 > 9 > Wily Wars (with SRAM hack) > 5 > 6 > 4 > Powered Up > V(GB) > 10 > 1 > The Power Fighters > The Power Battle > IV(GB) > III(GB) > II(GB) > Dr. Wily's Revenge(GB) > Mega Man 8 > Mega Man and Bass > Mega Man (Game Gear) > Mega Man and Bass - Challengers from the Future

An idea for Mega Man X6 for PSOne.

Create a patch that replaces the intro and outro from the original with the intro and outro from the MMXLC2 version of X6.

Restore the Japanese soundtrack of Gran Turismo 1 and 2 to the US AND European versions. The licenced soundtrack choice in the western versions is okay but I like the Japanese soundtrack better.

I am also searching the internet now since days to find anything about a Gran Turismo 1 (Japan Version) just english translated. I prefer aswell the soundtrack of japanese more but I would love to have the whole japanese version just english translated.

One idea: Like the port of Wolfenstein or Spear of Destiny from DOS to 32x, maybe a port of Carmageddon from DOS to 32x? It is possible?? Or Sega CD 32x (more size cappable).

Psycho Fox (SMS) Improvement

-Make the movement acceleration for all chars (besides maybe the Tiger) a bit faster so it's easier to play without knowing the levels fully
-Add some mid-air horizontal acceleration for all chars' regular jumps, similar to when bouncing on a spring, for a more even tempo
-Fewer blind jumps into hazards
-Lower default jump height

Has anyone ever insterted the english script into the Japanese version of Battletoads for the Famicom, the version that changed a bunch of things to make it not as punishingly difficult?

not sure if anything here is active still but does anyone know how to add custom power ups to the original mario bros games such as the ice flower or the master sword?

Castlevania - Harmony of Dissonance:

I would like to see Castle A palette to Castle B and Castle B palette to Castle A would look like.
If possible, I also like to see the layout as well.

 Get the DSVania tool. It could show you all of those things. Open DSVania, Extract Rom - Castlevania - Harmony of Dissonance. Once open, you can see the entire map. Click on any room to show it in the right window. Includes multiple editing functions like map and tile editing. Credits to Lago Lunatic for such an amazing tool. Most people hacking DS and GBA Castlevanias resort to this tool now. We even have a CVRomhacking Discord for it now. Hope this works out for you.  :thumbsup:

Super Mario All-Stars Randomizer:

Game loads up to a start screen menu where you select the number of levels to be played (probably using the menu system already built into the game menu. Select number of levels to be played increments of 10 or something. This could possibly be done in the randomization app instead of in game for race simplicity).

Levels are pulled from all games. You can weight each game in the app to change the rate at which each game is represented.

SMB2USA will choose random characters for each level that shows up.

Not sure how persistent power-ups or number of lives should be handled (You play a smb3 level and finish it with racoon mario, the next three levels are from other games before another smb3 level pops up. Do you still have raccoon mario? If so, does dying in a smb1 level cause you to lose that persistant powerup the next time you come across a smb3 level?)

Basic cosmetic functionality like sprite swaps, palette swaps, bgm/sfx randomization, MSU_1 support, etc.

Basic functionality of randomizers that are already in place so that each game may also have it's enemies and powerups shuffled.

Any way some one could hack the new operation c/probotector gbc auto boot hack to make the title screen operation c instead of probotector?
