You are making a translation request and the only thing you offer other than the game name and platform is a shot of the name entry screen?

Is that the sole extent of things that need translating in it or something?

Not only that but I googled "BOYSBE2ND" and came up with nothing relevant.

This thread, man, this thread... :D

I think some spaces are needed. "Boys Be 2nd PSX" turns up the following (along with some ROM download sites):

Basically, pilotwings 64 and emulators dont mix well. It creates a huge black shadow that obstructs your view.



It would be AMAZING if someone could permanently hack this gameshark code made by a guy named  Laughy Bad into pilotwings 64 so the problem no longer occurred.

This code makes the shadow disappear over land but aside from that small gripe, the game is fully playable. If anyone decides to do this, thank you!!

Speaking of Megaman Dubs, there has been a youtube group that has gone out of their way to redub Megaman X4, and it does sound 100x better.

Awesome. That would be so cool if they did the redubs of the other games that needed better voices for the other Megaman games.

Which emulator are you using? I've never had this problem in the game, and I've played through most of it.

Captain Commando for the PSX needs a localization.
Text could be edited, and the international names (Mack the Knife, Ginzu the Ninja, Baby Head) soundfiles are in the sound test.

Plus, it has a remixed soundtrack thats needs to be known.

I wonder if someone will ever pick Spectral Force 1 and 2 on either PSX or PSP to be translated. And Spectral Souls 1 on the PS2.

Replace the cheesy announcer voice from Wave Race 64 with angry clips of Samuel L. Jackson.

Specifically the parallel64 core of retroarch, in my opinion the best, most accurate (as far as I can tell) n64 emulator so far. Mixed with shaders, it really feels a lot like playing a real Nintendo 64 but yeah, pilotwings64's shadows go super wonky. If someone could hardcode the gameshark code in, it would work in all n64 emulators though. Call it "emulator edition" or something.

Remastered? Not sure what you mean exactly but Kya took graphics from mobile phone CV1 and made a sort-of hack. Check out my video about it!

2 crazy ideas :D for small improvement

battletoas

add missing sprite glasses to Rash, to differentiate and have more detail from the toads, add Zitz color as in the Battletoads & Double Dragon

Bare Knucles III / SoR 3

Change full sprite or just the head of old ugly Zan for a new cool body skin cyborg patlabor skin type sprite, which fits perfectly with the aesthetics Sci-fi of the game of enemies robots bosses

Hi there. little crazy but i had a couple ideas for romhacks, these Flash since are based on two Mario Flash Games, since Flash support ends in 2020. I got inspired to post after seeing a romhack of Super Mario Bros.3 which had the other 4 games in its library.

One was for Mario The Star Catcher, a puzzle game where you collect stars, dodging obstacles as you do so.

The next was Super Mario Crossover: Super Mario Bros. 1 but with multiple characters like Mega Man, Bill Rizer, Link, and etc.

I cannot program for the life of me and my technical knowledge is incredibly limited, and i don't know if this  would even be possible, but i figured i'd let the idea out there since these are interesting games and its a shame they're limited to Flash

Idk if this has been done before, but I would love if there was a full ROMhack recreation of the canceled Philips CDi game Super Mario's Wacky Worlds, but on Super Mario World.

I would love to see those WIP backgrounds recreated in the game.

This is a big thing to pull off, but I think it'd be really cool to have a more traditional real-time battle system (=Zelda style) implemented in For the Frog the Bell Tolls.

Something I forgot about, but it would be nice if someone took PS1's Ghaleon from Lunar english dub into the PSP version because that version of Ghaleon was honestly pathetic and really ruined his character.
