Yes, I am well aware that there currently exists a thread for rom hacking ideas, but I feel like making a just for me. Some of my ideas may really out there, but I don't care I'm posting rom hacking ideas that I would like to see one day or as projects to make myself. Here goes.
1. Space Station Silicon Valley. N64
I kind of like this game, but I think there are many aspects that could be better.
If I could hack my own version of this game it would be like so:
I would change the music to a more serious tone and have better graphic textures. I would give the two main characters, the space man and his robot a complete visual makeover so that it looks less cartoony. If I could I would redo the entire intro story and make it better and I would take all of the stupid fart jokes out of the game.
I would also get rid of all of the music speakers in the levels and just have the level music plays everywhere and I would turn the whole game into a more puzzle solving type game. All of the main levels would just be huge puzzles to solve using all of the various animals.
I would get rid of all of the TV's in which you go to an order to see what abilities your animals has and replace that with just a button combination.
And that would be the game!
But wait there is more. After playing this game a lot I have realized that there is a huge potential for like a 2 player versus mode. It would go like this. Each player selects an animal from a select screen which shows all of the different animals in the game and then the two of you get put into a level and try and destroy each other. If you have played this game then you know that there are some really interesting animals with really cool abilities such a dog with rockets and a polar bear which lays a big exploding poop (which would be replaced with a landmine graphic). The possibilities for battles using all of the various characters would just be loads of fun. And maybe have an option so that you get a total of 3 animals and when your first animal dies then while in game you get to select the next animal that you want to become so that if you just got owned by a certain type animal then you can pick a new animal which would be a good counter to that of your opponent.
2. Capcom Dream Match
Take all of the Capcom characters from the games; Darkstalkers, SF Alpha 3, SF 3rd Strike, Warzard, Capcom vs Marvel, Capcom vs SNK 2, ect and put them into one big game!
I think Capcom tried doing this in Capcom Jam, but that game sucked because they only had a small number of characters to choose from. Instead they should have done a full blown version with EVERY character in which they owned. I mean come on, those 2-D sprites are now getting replaced by newer and better graphics, so why not put all of their 2-D sprites in one last final game for the fans!?
Anyway it would be done by a ration system like in CvS1 with weaker characters being a lesser ratio than stronger ones. And you could pick groves based off of the original gameplay elements in the original games just a parrying for SF 3rd strike characters.
Anyway, this one really isn't a hack, but a dream game that I would like to see made.
3. This one is a hack for sure. Take Rock Howard from Capcom vs SNK 2 and make him a playable character in Capcom vs SNK1 for the Dreamcast.
4. Give Silver Surfer for the NES a lifebar hack.
5. Take a ton of old classic games and give them a graphics facelift just like how they did Super Street Fight 2 Turbo HD
6. Make the staff in Dr. Jeckle and Hyde an an actual weapon that kills the enemies in the game.
7. Make a bunch of 1 player games into 2 or even 4 player co-op games.
8. I also want to do a rom hack of SMB1 for the NES where Mario can now hold turtle shells and then either kick them upward just like in SMW.
