Grandia II PS2 Version could use a hardmode modification since the game for the most part is very easy except for a few certain bosses. Basically if you were to hit every enemy you came across, you would always be able to smash the boss to pieces and kills the idea that bosses should be a challenge.

With 9 selectable characters this port is considered the best copy of SF2 for Nes for its graphics and gameplay. It is incredible that a pirate game achieved what seemed impossible when many fans of the original game shouted for a port for the Nintendo.

This title ( Super Fighter III ) is the most complete and playable, it is worth giving a little new graphic hack

- apply some sprites screen of the GameBoy port version in Nes pirate game
- Background Colors
- names of the fighters

and a little more ......... what can be done :-\.........apply famitracker music patch

About Sonic 3 & Knuckles (or his perfectioned hacked version, Sonic 3 Complete), what about adding some sort of "extra", obtainable only after finishing the game with every possible finale, and with every character (to explain, after obtaining every finale with every character, like Normal, Super, and Hyper Sonic endings, Normal and Super Tails, Normal, Super and Hyper Knuckles, etc...)? Something like a cutscene (made with the game graphics of course) of Sonic running through the grass, or even just a final "CONGRATULATIONS" message, appearing right after the credits? Also, what about changing (this is something which could apply to Sonic 2 too, btw) the title screens for every character depending on the selected character? For example, keeping Sonic in the big icon at the beginning only if using Sonic alone, and adding Tails if he follows Sonic during the gameplay. You know, like with the lock-on technology games, and with the 2013 Android re-release of Sonic 1.

Seiken Densetsu 3 is an awesome game, but the Volcano Island area is one of the largest difficulty spikes in a video game I've ever seen. It would be great if somebody could simply nerf the enemies a bit.

Another thing I think would help the game is if the maps were a bit more straight forward, a lot of paths only lead to dead ends and add nothing to the game accept unnecessary frustration. I'm not saying over simplify them, just remove the pointless dead end paths.

Is it possible you missed the village on the island? That happened to me for a while. I think it's where there are 2 paths to choose from, 1 to advance and the other taking you to the village. Upgrading gear from it made the island pretty doable. Secret of Mana did a similar thing with its Mana Forest; a huge difficulty spike until you find the Neko within it for new gear. It's not a situation of being underleveled.

I actually got the gear first and the enemies still fucked me up.

I'm not sure if it's doable but updating the combat system to be closer to Legend of Mana would help a lot I think. I feel like Legend's combat just flows better, 3's combat can be a bit clunky at times.

Ideas for Castlevania Aria of Sorrow:
Replace souls and weapons with more usable counterparts (example: restore Valmanway to its former glory of 31 Att and make it more spammable, make Slime work more like Mario's fireball)
and this to replace Positron Rifle:

(for the record, I would have succeeded, but the game crashed when I tried using it. Dunno why, all I did was change sprites, icon move the sprites a bit (like a couple pixels at most) and change the text. Absurd Luck is a mistake, it was supposed to LOWER the luck greatly)

To give a better idea of how I'd want the Katana type weapons to work (I tried doing it in DSVania, but that thing LOVES making it complex to edit, specially without visual reference for Soma's position when editing skills & weapons sprite), here's some GIFs I baked of Photoshop to give an idea of length (and maybe animations) (yes, using the Mars+Wind combo from Circle of the Moon):
Most Katana


Later Katana

Here's an idea (due to not knowing where to post this up at.)



Have a compatible editor for Akumajou Densetsu, the Castlevania 3: Dracula's Curse Japan counterpart.  The reVamp editor is not compatible at all with the Famicom version of the game and +daniel+ is nowhere to be found to get in contact about this.  Would also like to see a music editor implemented into it, like how Editroid has its specific features.



It has quite a few differences compared to the U.S version so you'll have to dig around within its programming and make it similar, if not, more superior than reVamp as that program is a little outdated with a few bugs still not fixed in it for the U.S version.

I’d like to suggest if not done so already a hack of Gradius, Gradius 2, & Life Force where the horizontal levels are made to be vertical & any levels that were vertical could be made to scroll horizontily if that makes sense.

Now that the SNES port of Wolfenstein 3D will be uncensored soon, I would like to see someone decensor Duke Nukem 64.

Don't forget the fact that the game gets stuck in the same background in 2 Player mode, always the China stage. Only in single player you get to see the other stges.

Would it be possible to hack the GBA/GBC exclusive features into Mario All Stars?

So Mario 1 gets a separate Luigi mode, Mario 2 gets "A" coins, and Mario 3 gets its E Levels and exclusive power ups?

Weren't the A coins in SMB2 originally from the Satellaview games?
