Here are 2 hack ideas i have

- Donkey Kong Hack (It involves a plot where Aliens abducted Elvis Presley and transmogrified him into an ape's body and it's up to a lunatic Elvis fangirl to save her idol from being probed.. unfortunately to prevent her rescue, the Aliens brain washed him into being a evil ape [like in the original game])

- Nekketsu Kouha Kunio-kun hack: the plot is basically Kunio is suspended for a crime at his school that he didn't commit only to find out that his school system has payed the bullies to frame him and his pal Riki so they won't go to jail for their heinous acts... for this injustice -- Kunio vows revenge on the corrupt school system for kicking him out of the school he helped shape up

Want to see somebody develop some ASM to modify the Metroid games a bit with the enemies where some of the wall crawlers can leap from platform to platform like in blaster master and give some of them also the ability to spit projectiles :) Nothing monumental but would make for a nice difficulty add-on or part of a remake project. Maybe a fight against a dark samus too  :D

Well, I make Pokemon hacks and have NEVER seen a Capsule Monsters (CapuMon, Pokemon Red and Blue Beta/Alpha) revival.

I'm adding it into Pokemon Gold Beta/Alpha REVIVAL if I get enough people who support the idea. It may become a beta mashup soon if Capsule Monsters and Gen 1 beta/alpha get added. May go to future gens

Oh man, I've been meaning to find you!  You're the guy who made that Pokemon Red hack with Gen 2 graphics, right?  If so, I had this dream of recreating Gen 1 with Gen 2's systems, and I assume it'd be a simple endeavor if they have tools; it'd mostly be a level hack.  However, I have one question.  Do Gen 1 and Gen 2 share the same sound driver, given they have the same Pokemon cries and sound effects?  If so, would it be possible to copy paste the music from Gen 1 into Gen 2?  Just curious.

Most of the character sprites appear to be in uncompressed 8x8 4bpp, they do appear to split them up by "section" of the body (hat/raised arms, head, body/arms and legs) they come from ultimately making 4x4 or possibly 6 high and 4 wide sprites at the end and the animations seem somewhat plentiful so you have a few to deal with.

How about a Mickey Mousecapeades overhaul hack with the following
- fixed physics
- Fix and Foxi in the place of Mickey and Minnie
- Foxi's cpu will be more competent than the original Minnie cpu
- A plot with more sense
- other flaws with Mousecapades to be fixed

To understand why Fix and Foxi is perfect for this hack
please watch these: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NvIwAIVHDiA

In Megaman 1,
*Hyper Bomb can blow up blocks;
*When enemies get hit with Ice Slasher, they drop on the ground rather than frozen in mid-air;
*Fire Storm barrier lasts longer;
*When there's no big blocks to lift, Megaman can attack with smaller blocks with Super Arm;

In Megaman 2,
*Time Stopper can be used a few times;
*Bubble Lead behaves differently underwater like floating upward or bouncing;

In Megaman 3,
*Needle Cannon can damage buster deflecting enemies; pierce through shields;
*Spark Shock (See Ice Slasher)
*Shoot actual Tops instead of acting like one :/

In Megaman 4,
*Skullman's weapon is not a barrier.

In Megaman 5,
*Gravity Hold sends enemies away in one use;
*Use Charge Kick also in mid-air;

In Megaman 6,
*Plantman's weapon is NOT a barrier!
*Wind Storm is not a puny tornado

You gave me just the idea I needed to start to learn hacking.

English-language Terranigma redone from scratch.
It should be blatantly obvious why.

99 %  of those 'hack ideas' are Nintendo related.

No idea for a good Genesis hack ?

My post from a few pages back:
I'd love a level editor for Monster World IV (or III, or II). Other features I'd hack into MWIV if I could:
-Allow for revisiting beaten areas
-Let Asha keep running when moving between screens (currently she stops so you need to double tap again)
-Set running to a button instead of double tap
-Add some momentum to the jumping mechanics (longer jumps when running)
-Re-implement the equipment system from the previous game, so you can switch between different gear without replacing it in shops
-Add more hidden stuff (hidden money in certain spots similar to WBIML, cracks in walls, hidden doors in the background etc.)
-Make the final boss tougher somehow
Mini-reviews, retro sound chip tribute, romhacks and general listage at my site: Mini-Revver.

Because most people plays Nintendo, I guess? Or because the games that are more interesting to hack are in Nintendo consoles and handhelds?
Well, I have an idea for a non-nintendo hack, but I'm sure MANY have heard: Castlevania Symphony of the Night PSX but with all the Saturn-exclusive content

Notice my question was not 'Why are more than 99% Nintendo related ?'.

I know very well the hacking scene is mainly american, and that Nintendo is (was) well-established there. Better than in Europa.

I don't think share your second reason though. It sounds a little like a troll  :thumbsup:
