I just noticed no version of Cannon Fodder has any tool for it. Not even a simple name editor. So, here's the idea: a name-editing tool for the GBC, SNES, and maybe Genesis version. Possibly even stretch it to Amiga, PC, etc., but for the first two systems I mentioned (and maybe the third), it's easy to find and edit the names via a text editor.

Hmmm...this has been going in my head for some time, but do you think there could be a possibility on a demake (in the style of the 90s Hit the Road's artstyle) of the Sam & Max 3 season series from Telltales or something? I mean I've seen demakes before like with Lucius.

A translation of puyo puyo 1 ans 2 on sega mega drive, puyo puyo sun on the saturn and puyo puyo n on the dreamcast would be cool

You want to lessen the impact of when Jools and Jops finally get lost in a mission? Madness.

More like I want to see Streamers being able to put their viewers in the game.

many nes games lack music or sounds compared to their FDS counterpart, such as Exitebike, kid Ikarus, ice climber, among others, would it be very difficult to restore them? :thumbsup:

Is there any hack to make Castlevania Bloodlines has unlimited continues? Kinda weird that it's the only Castlevania (Afaik) that have limited continues  :P

King's Knight NES ideas:
• Change pickup symbols to make it easier to tell which does what.
• Add proper stats on the character select screen to know which character needs what stats.
• For Stage 5, remove the switching arrow, remove the diamond party formation, allow character switching with Select.
• Also for Stage 5, flash the health bar to show when someone's magic can be used.

A more accurate translation of the English Puyo Puyo for Arcade, maybe?

I was looking for a way to play Virtual Boy games in full color since red on black is painful to look at after a while.  I know there's a way to play them in black and white like a Game Boy but if there's a way to play them in full color, that'd be great.  I think with the Virtual Boy's graphics being better than the Game Boy, it could really benefit from that.  I did manage to find a YouTube channel where the user does a full playthrough of the Virtual Boy game called Jack Bros. (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLiNr3bC_GJ586UWFr4GgJfxTbJWrvrJMu) It's in full color, which I have never seen done with any other Virtual Boy game.  I found a mock up for Wario Land on Virtual Boy in full color on another website, but it was only a few screen shots and it was edited to be in color and not an actual rom hack.  If anyone knows how to colorize Virtual Boy games and have them run in an emulator, that'd be fantastic.  :D

some Pizza Tower related ideas:
• Snick across... Various Sonic games, including Sonic 3 A.I.R.
* Peppino in Wario Land 2, 3 and 4
* Yo Noise! ... Basically, Noise replacing the Noid in Yo Noid!

Quote from: TakuikaNinja on January 01, 2023, 08:24:20 PMThat is more of a graphical limitation than a code issue. The 8x8 sprites which make up the enemies (including moving platforms) are constantly shuffled to work around the 8-per-scanline limitation. It's just that the platforms are so wide that the scanline limit is already maxed out in most scenarios where multiple of them are onscreen.
UPDATE: The "heart" of the problem (the "possessed pulleys") has now been solved thanks to both Shane M. and Kindle Kat. To fix this, go to "PlatformFall:" and add:
PlatformFall:
    ...
    lda Enemy_State,x (SMAS bugfix)
    bpl OtherPlat (SMAS bugfix)
    jsr MoveFallingPlatform (original code)
OtherPlat: (new label)
    ldx ObjectOffset (original code)
    ...

Someone probably hacked an emulator for that Jack Bros. playthrough.

What you are asking is for someone to emulate hardware that doesn't exist.

I'd like to see a golf game for the NES where you can choose different people, but instead characters from the TMNT 80's cartoon or the first 90's movie.  :D

More translations of Japanese manuals:
- Amazing Penguin which we have a DX colorization
- For the Frog the Bell Tolls which is DX this year
- others


Bump the frame limiter (15 fps) for Monster Max (GB) and adjust the engine to account for speed overclocking.

Simple Idea: Automatically start Final Fantasy Tactics Advance in TV Mode, so that those of us who play on a modded screen or on the Gameboy Player don't have our eyes assaulted by the original oversaturated colors intended for an unlit screen.
