Splatterhouse 3: Bloody Edition

Hack of Splatterhouse 3

Description:

I will put this right up top: the most common dump of the Japanese version of this game has a bad checksum. All there is to do if your patch fails to apply, is to use this tool to fix checksum in the rom before applying your patch:

https://www.romhacking.net/utilities/1610/

Thanks to Retroplay for bringing this to my attention and finding a solution. I can’t do anything from my end, the problem is not my patch, but with the ROM dumped online. Just fix the bad checksum with the tool above, then patch it, that’s it.

Anyway, this is a straight forward hack that simply replaces the green-colored “blood” with the more appropriate red blood. It is more in lieu with what the original developers had in mind, but Namco could not approve due to the strict censorship at the time. The developers have mentioned so in interviews.

If you like the original green slime, this hack is obviously not for you.

This is a strictly color-editing hack, no further changes were made. The game is left just as you remember, but blood is now red, that is all.

Update v1.1: The two spots featured in screenshots three and four that still had green blood have been fixed.

Update v1.2: A patch for the Japanese version has been made, including changes done in 1.1. No changes were made to the American patch, which remains the exact same.

All maps of the game have been carefully verified afterwards, and there seems to be no more green blood anywhere, so that should be it. There is an elusive pair of sprites I could not find, more details in the readme file. Enjoy.

Feel free to report any bugs or problems via a PM or in your review, thank you. But please, be patient, and again, if you’re having trouble patching this game, it’s going to be the bad checksum that plagues the Japanese dump commonly found online for sure, NOT my patch. Again, fix checksum, and it will work just fine.

Well done but...

Reviewed By: Jack_Vincent13 on 11 Oct 2021

Wow, this is outstanding, and so appropriate for the season. And I just tested this and applied BillyTime! Games SRAM over this with no issues what so ever. Well done. I will say I honestly think the red could be just a bit darker though.

  • Compatibility is a plus, but with your update the blood is still TOO bright, overly so, and maybe the author was going for fresh blood, but it stands out immensely and is actually off putting. It doesn’t consistently match up with any of the other blood. Hope some actual honesty helps here. Cheers
