I'd also like a Banjo Kazooie hack that lowers the required collection quotas to about 50-60%.

Besides myself, a hack like this would also it appeal to furries.

Haha haha ha! "I'm not a furry but it would be cool if we had this furry sprite hack... for furries."
Now you're playing in... three dimensions.

<_<

 I already explained my big reason for wanting the hack, and it's not because I'm a furry.

I had an idea for a Dragon Quest 9 hack

what if the player's boring custom character got replaced with one of the heroes from previous games?
they have 3D models, unlike most NPCs so it would just be a matter of replacing it
maybe this could be done as a cheat, like for R4 and stuff?

More enemies in Mega Man X2's stages (SNES) since all them feel lack of enemies (volcano stage, water stage...).

I'd love to see an English translation of Super Famicom's Ranma Nibunnoichi: Chougi Rambuhen. While the game can be played ignoring the Japanese text it would be cool to be able to read the stories for each character (presented as frame cards between matches).

I thought Dynamic-Designs already did that one.
Or maybe somebody else.

We don't have a less embarrassing translation of the one that became Street Combat.

As for SB5 in English, I'm sure you're not the first to ask. :)

EDIT: Actually, having checked out SB5 just now, I can see that the amount of Japanese is minimal - so minimal that using the FAQ on GameFAQs would be enough to understand everything. Still, maybe I should give it a look myself...

Ha, I just spent the last hour or so having a go at it myself. The only Japanese text I can see is the menus, which are compressed. I've got as far as finding where they are, but it'd take me a bit longer to figure out the compression routine. I decided that I didn't need to worry about the compression anyway since there's enough free space to insert my own uncompressed graphics, but I haven't yet got them loading. I'm taking a break now. This person seems to have been a bit elaborate in their Github setup, my hacks are never as organised as that. :D I really think that I could get this done in a day or two, really.

To better match 'Earthbound Beginnigs' and 'Earthbound'.

(Or would Earthbound Advance be better?)

Hi. Im new here actually. And im just curious about someone if could hack golden axe 2 to be playable through 6 gamepad buttons. Im really a fan of six buttons and the reason that it doesn't really fixed when you hold the mode button while you turn on the game. Its working but it has control mapping problem. Iike mode button is forward. And x. Y. Z are the other directons. This problem only found on the consoles. Not on the emulators.


So what im thinking. Is to hack those buttons and add some extra button orders for the x y z. Same like it does in street of rage 3 :)

I was watching the new TAS of Old Axe Armor mode in Portrait of Ruin http://tasvideos.org/6363S.html and was reminded of the Nest of Evil in that game, which contained many bosses from Dawn of Sorrow. It would be great if a Nest of Evil type thing was inserted into Order of Ecclesia, or the Nest of Evil in Portrait of Ruin was expanded on, such that any one game would have all the bosses from the other two. Insanely ambitious, I know, but it would be amazing for the DSVania randomizer, as well. Don't take my lack of mention for Dawn of Sorrow as admission that it would be worse off, either - I don't particularly care which DSVania would be receiving this hack, if it's even considered at all by someone with the talent and coding knowledge.

I wanted to import custom sprites for my SNES mod of Prince Of Persia.
The problem is that most graphics in the game are compressed, with very few exceptions, like hitpoints or the princess room torch.
The compression algorithm of the sprites is known and documented here: https://www.princed.org/w/index.php?title=SNES_format#Sprites
And a tool to extract sprites is also available (which is written in PHP): https://forum.princed.org/viewtopic.php?f=76&t=4236
But no tool to import sprites has been created.

My modifications are intended to be mainly for some color swaps/clothing additions for the Prince, Princess and Amazon graphics, for example:
Original:
Final Goal:
Prince Of Persia: The Queen Of Light

A Eternal Champions (Sega Genesis) rom hack would be awesome. For starters, make it so you can link and cancel normal and special moves together like you can in the Sega CD one. The original EC could've been a good competitor to SFII and MK if it had the combo system like those fighters. The AI definitively needs fixing, most people find it so difficult that they can't make it pass the 1st opponent, plus they block way too much, so you end up having to resort to using nothing but throws which makes fights boring and they shouldn't be allowed to use special moves when their Inner Strength meter is empty (It's the little ying yang symbols next the health bars).

This would be confusing. Mother 3 should be Earthbound 3 and Earthbound should be Earthbound 2.
Now you're playing in... three dimensions.
