Attention Pokemon fans and Game Freaks! Mendel Palace Vapor available now!

17 August 2018 3:41AM EST - Update by Player 1

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

P1 is at it again, this time (2nd hack) P1 chose a game with code has gone untouched since it’s release in ‘89/’90. After blowing some dust out the rom it became clear this may very well be the worlds first and only “Mendel Palace” hak! This NES era action puzzler was a personal favorite long before anyone uttered the word, “Pikachu”. The creators behind the Japanese version of this game “Quinty”, would go on to develop the largest multimedia IP juggernaut the world has ever known… Pokemon.

The art style of both games is almost identical and many of the characters could be interchangeable. The game definitely needed a fresh coat of paint. An Aesthetic that fit. A Vaporwave look for the game only made sense with the checkerboard tiles. Profound pastel and 90’s palette swaps on every single tile! P1 did this for the entire game! P1 added the standard P1 graphical mods and Easter eggs,but the frantic arcade puzzle gameplay remains the same!

Most have never played Mendel Palace, or its time for a revist, so its highly recommend checking out “Vapor” in any case. To access this extra part of the game simply hold start and select on the controller while pressing the reset button on the NES system. If Mendel Palace Vapor is enjoyable please check out the other P1 hak Blaster Basterd right here on romhacking!

PS The only thing missing P1 REALLY wanted to do was add a VaporWave CD soundtrack to the game. Maybe some day someone could help P1 with a Turbo-CD port lol!

Jajamaru Series on NES Completely Translated

16 August 2018 8:24AM EST - Update by Pennywise

Translations News - RHDN Project Page

Today aishsha and Pennywise present a completed translation of Jajamaru Ninpou Chou for the NES. This project is a milestone in that the entire series on the NES is now in English and did you know that aishsha and Pennywise have been working together for 10 years now? Over the course of a decade they’ve managed to translate at least 20 RPG’s and other misc games. They probably have one of the most productive partnerships in the history of the translation community.

Please note that the translation of Jajamaru Ninpou Chou is only playable on certain emulators like FCEUX. This is because the ROM was expanded past the mapper limit. If anyone wishes to hack the translation to use a different mapper, we are happy to incorporate it into the translation. We can also provide source code for the expansion hacks to anyone interested.

As a bit of a bonus, aishsha did some title screen hacks for the two Ninja Kun games bringing them into the Jajamaru fold.

Lastly, not related to Jajamaru, but Pennywise also happened to finish a translation of Tenjin Kaisen for the GB at the same time as these games and decided to release it with everything else.

Ganbare Goemon Gaiden 2 (NES) English Translation Patch Now Available!

12 August 2018 9:10PM EST - Update by MrFwibbles

Translations News - RHDN Project Page

Mr Fwibbles (Grandia: Parallel Trippers, Ganbare Goemon Gaiden etc) has completed a full English translation patch for Ganbare Goemon Gaiden 2 on the Famicom/NES.

Originally released in January 1992, GGG2 is another turn-based RPG, but this time around the battles use a Phantasy Star II-style perspective with more advanced animations and effects than the previous game. This side-story is about Goemon and Ebisumaru entering a “Thievery World Tournament” where the aim is to be the first team to gather 8 keys which unlock a door leading to a legendary treasure that will make the winners rich.

The project took around 5 months from start to finish, with no major roadblocks (thanks to having an idea of how to prepare for them in advance from working on the previous game).

Thanks to Cccmar, Lilith and TheRedPriest Q for help with testing and feedback.

Please note that this game doesn’t work properly in some popular emulators. For more information, be sure to check the provided Readme file.

Dragon Warrior Monsters Ultimate

09 August 2018 9:55AM EST - Update by JonahStrix

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

This gem of the past allows 3 monsters parties out of a total 312 different monsters.Some of the final bosses monsters might as well be from Dragon Ball Z. Regardless, the breeding mechanics provide players with the option to use almost anyone in their party. Unfortunately, the story drags through levels 1-20 before breeding is unlocked. From that point it does not take much effort before random dungeon keys offer better monsters and XP then the story.

This hack began with the accidental discovery of the DWM2 ROM MAP, https://dragon-warrior-monsters-2-modding.wikia.com/wiki/ROM_Map

After a couple months one of the greatest childhood GBC RPGs has been remade into an adult RPG challenge. The story keys now have a great variety of tough monsters to compete with the random keys. The XP reward of some peculiar monsters have been boosted to keep random keys interesting. Collect rare XP keys until you can unlock the MetalKing training grounds!

Dragon Quest and Pokemon fans should give it a try! Please let JonahStrix know of any issues or suggestions for improvement.
