I know someone was already doing that, but I don't know where it is.

You mean this?

No No No, I mean a hack where you can play either Bugs or Rodger and villains are both that of the FDS original and the NES localized game

That would be really weird.


Can anyone help hack the Planet of the Apes boss back into the Monster Party prototype restoration patch?

The game does this on the real hardware as well. SSI or whoever programed the game somehow screwed up, when a noise is made during battle (such as a sword swing) the battle music stops and never starts again untill the next battle.
Captain Tsubasa 3 , 4th most downloaded Spanish translation.  Possibly the first Jap to Spanish translation instead of English to Spanish. There is no English version yet

I know this sounds like a bit much but how about a fan made sequel to Rockin' Kats?

So, I was meddling with Castlevania Circle of the Moon and found out that, in the US version, the address 0200009c handles whether you are running or walking. Freezing it to 1 makes you walk and freezing it to 0 makes you run. What this got to do with my idea? Simple: My idea is to create a hack with an "Always Run" option, but also to fix a few issues that always running causes.
Issues detected so far:
* Venus+Cockatrice (Sherman Ring effect, gain 1 exp per step you WALK) doesn't work because it requires you WALK for that.
! Proposed solution: Change it to give 1 EXP per second instead (if possible) but increase MP drain.
* Allows Wall Climbing, almost like Mega Man X, because you will be at your full horizontal speed at all times.
! Proposed Solution: Design some areas to have breakable wall on a crate instead of a plain wall. Crates and breakable walls cannot be wall kicked from.
* Twitches between Push and Run frames while pushing a box.
! Proposed Solution: Figure how this address is affected by the box and have it stop the running attempting until you are not pushing the box.

I like how you think, Fox.  I had a similar idea for NES DK, one where someone hacks in the little cut scenes and in-between animations.  There already seems to be a hack where the second level has been added in, so who knows?

Hey, yeah! And maybe we could add the Twister Girders, Triple Elevators, and Eliminator levels from the Intellivision version.

Anyway, maybe someone could hack the NES version of Donkey Kong Jr. to put the cutscenes from the arcade version back in?

Yes. Here's what the NES version doesn't have:
  • The opening scene, which inexplicably features a second Mario.
  • Mario pushing away DK's cage after every level.
  • The intermission between levels 2 and 3.
  • The ending cutscene is in the NES version, but it's missing DK Jr. hopping away with DK, followed by Mario getting up and running after them, only to get kicked away by DK.
Here's a mockup of one of the Arcade cutscenes put back into the NES version:

another hack idea is a Bravoman hack
- Graphic overhaul to make it resemble the ShiftyLook webseries versions of the characters
- PC Engine version of the ShiftyLook "Bravoman" webseries theme song
- New music
- New voice samples
- Story as is but with more nods to the ShiftyLook series
- More stages

A hack of the SNES and Genesis versions of Rise of the Robots that enables all 7 robots playable in both the 1 Player and 2 Player modes, which lets Player 1 select a different character (instead of the ECO35-2 Cyborg) and Player 2 can now select the Cyborg and The Supervisor (without a cheat code) in 2 Player mode.

How about a hack of Ike Ike! Nekketsu Hockey Bu that is a reconstruction of the scrapped "Crash 'n the Boys: Ice Challenge"
basically, construct the hack the way the localized game should've been

as for the logo here's a promo from Technos as reference

Nekketsu Hockey is one of my favorite games that I played!  And even though a "localization" patch might not be feasible, I still think a title in English would be better than random Japanese words written in English.

What i'm saying is since the real localized Ice Challenge is scrapped, let's reconstruct the game so we can have the "Crash 'n the Boys: Ice Challenge" that we've been waiting for all these years
