Comprehensive NBA Jam TE Romhacking Document Released!

18 October 2018 9:27PM EST - Update by eskayelle

Documents News - RHDN Project Page

Fresh off of releasing his NBA Jam TE - Double Z Mod romhack of an SNES classic basketball / beat-em-up extravaganza, eskayelle has released his Hacking NBA Jam TE: A Beginner’s Guide document.

An aggregation of everything eskayelle researched and learned while modding the game, the document purports to provide guidance on everything from modding court and uniform colors, to injecting PAR codes into players, to modding stats and graphics, and more!

While eskayelle’s goal is to generate interest in NBA Jam: Tournament Edition, and more hacks of it, he admits to two alterior motives:

  • The hope that hackers may find the document useful enough that they consider annual roster updates to the game.
  • The hope that experienced hackers may find the document interesting enough that they may want to pitch in with some guidance on sound hacking.

For those of you interested in digging into some fun, smash-mouth, 2-on-2 basketball, please pick up a copy of a document (and perhaps the Double Z Mod patch) today!

TransCorp Releases 'Angelic' Tenshi No Uta English Translation!

14 October 2018 12:33PM EST - Update by Nightcrawler

Translations News - RHDN Project Page

Rejoice once more! News has come from Nightcrawler’s Translation Corporation! The Song of the Angel English translation has been released! This is a milestone in the fan translation community as it is the first introduction of the Tenshi No Uta series to English audiences. Fans of Tales of Phantasia and Star Ocean will be happy to know the game shares many of the same developers known as the ‘Wolf Team’, as well as sharing the main musical composer too! As a result, Song of the Angel is a very charming game with a great soundtrack. The atmosphere will certainly feel familiar.

Nightcrawler made every effort to ensure the hacking work is amongst the best seen on the SNES platform. Nearly everything was expanded and proportional font deployed throughout all dialog and menus. The result ensures the dialog was uncompromised, and menus are up to standards set on future generation consoles. As an added bonus, a number of original game bugs were fixed too! Liana of Metal Max Returns fame did the translation work. So, you can expect to experience a well written translation to convey the aforementioned charm of the original game.

For those not familiar with the game, Song of the Angel is a love story at its core. It blends together a tale of love, angels, demons, and even Satan himself! Gameplay is typical 1994 RPG fare with the addition of a Parley negotiation system. You’ll meet a wide cast of characters including old friends, new friends, a tyrannical count, a soothsayer, and more. You will walk, teleport, sail, and fly by the time your adventure concludes.

Some further details are available in the readme file for those of you interested in more about the project and game. For the rest of you in a hurry to get things done, go start playing!

Donkey Kong Country - Expert Edition Released

04 October 2018 7:18AM EST - Update by Q

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

Nearly 25 years ago, Donkey Kong Country was released to the world, and it quickly won over gamers with its pre-rendered CGI graphics, became one of the best-selling Super NES games of all time, and spawned numerous sequels. And while its graphics might not have the wow factor they had in 1994, Donkey Kong Country’s gameplay holds up to this day.

While Donkey Kong Country is known for being difficult, many people have mastered it. Are you one of them? Donkey Kong Country - Expert Edition will put your platforming skills to the test. It removes the DK Barrels (which give you your characters back if you lose them) and Star Barrels (which act as checkpoints), so you can only take two hits in each stage before losing a life and being forced to start over from the beginning.

Additionally, all the Warp Barrels have been removed. If you think you’re just going to skip over Mine Cart Carnage, Stop & Go Station, or any other stage in the game, think again.

EarthBound Zero Without the Frustration

04 October 2018 7:17AM EST - Update by Q

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

Since the NES EarthBound Zero prototype was leaked two decades ago, many gamers have been frustrated by the game’s tedious pacing. EarthBound Zero (known as Mother in Japan), the famed prequel to EarthBound for the Super NES, is an old school RPG known for it’s high random encounter rate and for requiring large amounts of grinding to level up and purchase equipment, which has discouraged many potential fans from completing the game.

This problem was fixed in the fan translation of the GBA version of Mother, which added an item called the “Easy Ring.” Now, you can enjoy the benefits of the Easy Ring while playing the original NES version of EarthBound Zero. Q’s Gameplay Balance hack—which is included in his EarthBound Zero Tweaks collection—quadruples earned experience, doubles earned money, and significantly reduces random encounter rates, just like the Easy Ring mod.

If you enjoyed EarthBound for the SNES and Mother 3 for the GBA but could never get into the first game, then apply this patch, and give it another chance.

Villgust FC (re)translated!

30 September 2018 6:50AM EST - Update by cccmar

Translations News - RHDN Project Page

After some work, the retranslation of Kouryuu Densetsu Villgust Gaiden was finally completed. This franchise is based on an old toy line used to play a tabletop RPG. It spawned an OVA, two games and some other types of media. It was decided that this game would be a good candidate for a retranslation (there are a couple more games like that from the early period of romhacking). It’s a pretty simple action RPG, and hopefully the potential players will enjoy the efforts to give it some more polish.

Also, additionally, congrats to Pluvius/Eien Ni Hen/Filler on completing the patch for Outlanders, yet another franchise that got its own anime adaption!
