IPS patch at the end, please read this...
Well, I was a little worried
before posting this romhack...lol... with so many rules... And is kinda funny, because this game is well known state-of-the-art-racing-game-16-bits that received not one, but 2 10`s from EGM, and is already finished!!! Let me explain, I`m changing the game`s colors and patching texts, but if someone apply the ips patch and play, it`s fully playable, lol.
My intention was to put this on Hacks section, but it`s a bit complicated and the Super Monaco GP name isnt`t there for naming the hack.
I`ve choose SMGP , first because of my love for this awesome game and second because of our Super Monaco GP Community has just ended a championship these days (I`ve had run with Millions and Blanche)
So, after almost 30 years, and not even one hack, Super Monaco GP gets updated, with 90% of all cars faithful to it`s real life teams colors. Some tracks with an new exciting color, besides that ones with only blue sky from the game. Drivers and team names updated, but only in Brazilian Portuguese version (I can`t find those texts to edit).
I can change texts from games, but only the simple texts that appear. I don`t know hexadecimal editing, table, pointers, lol...
Just used Gens K emulator to see the game`s palletes and change in the game with HivePal.
You maybe are waiting for some pic, I`had problem uploading images, so this is a video on Youtube, i`ve made for you from romhacking.net
Video with all screens changed, plus the brazilian portuguese with all teams and drivers names correcthttps://youtu.be/E746HCw_RnoPs: Some texts before the screen updates are so faaast, please click pause to read :shame:
Now, I want to share all my research on internet about the Super Monaco GP , something about the audio that is making me nutz!!! Everyone who has played this game only one time know the poooor audio from the game voices... Terrible!!! But, using MDV Sound Editor for Genesis and searching many of the bank voices, i`ve found some quality voices like the Sega CD Version
How could Sega do this mess with the game?
I think, Stef
who made a great change in Street Fighter 2 voices for Genesis may find a way to replace that sound with the actual ones in the game. Listen to 2 examples, please:
This is the voices of this first one : Final Lap, Keep it Up! and Good Luck! https://www.mediafire.com/file/60wlijenqji851e/final%20lap%20keep%20it%20up%20good%20luck.wav
And this is the voices of this another wav file: Common, Now it`s up to you! and Nice Drivin!https://www.mediafire.com/file/rw4emmzqquh46al/common%20now%20its%20up%20to%20you%20nice%20drivin.wav
To find this voices, I`ve used MDV Sound Editor(it`s on romhacking tools) and did this:
- Used a .bin rom like this that I`ve patched to update.
- Changed Bank Address from 60000 to 71800
- Where is written pitch on right side, put 30
- Now in the left side, choose Voice 16 that I know it`s one of them.
- But, if you all, search more bank address, adding 100 to the 71800 , like 71900, 72000 or inverse, 71700, 71600, you`ll find more of the same voices!!! Like, a lot more!!!
Before you think this gigantic post, it`s caotic and confuse, it`s not, my goal is to update the game , with better sounds, real drivers pictures from 89 season, like Dav2015 made on Ayrton`s Senna Super Monaco GP 2 with 91 Season. But if we could do this,then we can make an update year by year, with, maybe F1 2018, before the next season starts!!!
Some Genesis groups, make a update every year, like NHL fans...
What about a F-Indy version of the game?
Before I forgot...acknowledgements to Pyron , because of his color hacks and Youtube great HivePal Tutorial. To Stef and his deep knowledge about our Genesis Mega Drive... Dav2015 , who created a wonderful ASMGP2 hack, with all teams , drivers and colors, inspiring me!!! And to DMN_Sonic , that corrected all Teams and Drivers names, as well translating to portuguese. I`m just searching for someone who knows how to edit the texts,find and insert graphics, and the major one, the driver`s picture, your name will be in history, as one of the editors of a new updated version, but no money here...lol...just the love for this game!
Ps: No copyright infringement intended here, just a work of love for this great game... Seeeeegaaaaaaaaa
