Super Mario Bros. 3: The Forgotten Worlds for FDS

29 June 2020 1:11PM EST - Update by szemigi

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

Hello everyone!

After 3-month development Super Mario Bros 3.: The Forgotten Worlds has now been released as a Famicom Disk System hack as well! In case somebody doesn’t know it yet, it is an unofficial expansion pack and sequel to Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels including a new character called Kevin (who is Mario’s and Luigi’s dream brother), 9 brand new worlds, new (and 1-2 resurrected) graphics, and many other features never seen in the previous two Super Mario Bros. games.

Big thanks to 4matsy for helping and code supplying, thanks to doppelganger for the SMB2J disassembly! And thanks for Szemigi for his enthusiastic effort that has been put into the project.

Also, this would be the first SMB2J hack that was created with doppelganer’s SMB2J disassembly.

Release of Manall's FF1

28 June 2020 9:05AM EST - Update by Manall

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

Three years ago this project started small, with nothing but minor color changes and item edits. Since July 2019 it has become a juggernaut and culminated into a new take on a classic that still feels like what you remember.

In addition to heightened difficulty to keep you awake and on your toes there are new mechanics, items, spells, monsters, and a load of improvements. No more ineffective turns! New and returning classes! Far more strategic combat and greater class synergy add to the reward of more back-and-forth battles. The itemization requires more consideration, and you may find yourself keeping things you easily sold in the original.

The improved battle system should put a smile on your face. Specialty weapons are back - and stronger - along with some utilizing the newly-added perk of inflicting status ailments. Magic users will utilize a far more diverse spellbook than before, as all spells are valuable instead of the original’s roughly half or less.

There is too much to list, but… be on the lookout for secrets.

Detailed charts have been created to aid in each adventurer’s journey just like the classic paper fold-up charts! Make sure you check them out for the nitty gritty details.

LaSalle Ishii's KAIZO Quest Emerges From the Depths!

13 June 2020 1:11PM EST - Update by Polinym

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

Be careful what you wish for…

Shortly after the release of Stardom Warriors, Polinym’s localization of LaSalle Ishii’s Childs Quest (also known as ChaiKue), Polinym began work on a delocalization version simply “because he could”. However, he quickly realized that such an obscure, ugly, and slightly pervy game was unfit for mere mortal English speakers. So, he channeled all the dark energy of “free time” to create a more menacing, enraging experience. He worked on his Kaizo Quest project among various other projects.

LaSalle Ishii’s KAIZO Quest is the embodiment of Polinym’s dual-faced nature towards a non-localized version of ChaiKue. Nearly all of the copyrighted content, such as LaSalle Ishii, Matsuo Ishii, and the Childs, has been restored. The game’s text has been rewritten to be significantly more accurate to the original. Much of the censorship has been removed, although Polinym still has his limits…

At the same time, the cost of such a project is an increased difficulty. The game now takes more grinding to complete. Shop items are now drastically more expensive. Lies and tricks have been scattered among the helpful hints. All of the water in-game has been replaced by bloo, um, er, “Mementos Juice”. Many helpful hints have flat-out been removed. The final boss’s true form has been restored…

Polinym does not approve of this game. He suggests that only experienced ChaiKue players even consider attempting this. A quality, family-friendly way to play the game in English already exists in the form of Stardom Warriors ( http://www.romhacking.net/translations/5321/ )

This hack was designed to be hated. Polinym shall not be responsible for controllers thrown into TV/PC screens or discomfort caused by the game’s dialogue.

Phantasy Star Generation 4: A Relocalization - Final(ish) Patch Released w/ Script Options

02 June 2020 3:05PM EST - Update by GhaleonUnlimited

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

Phantasy Star Generation 4 is a relocalization (and for most of the story script, a retranslation) of the classic SEGA JRPG Phantasy Star IV.

Integrating fan feedback with dozens of hours of editing, the author has release a final(ish) version of the patch catering to as many player preferences as possible – along with substantial story script improvements.

1. Script versions: Choose between Recommended or “No Joke” (removes added NPC lines, some character interaction while retaining revised script).

2. Names/Items/Spells matching either the Master System original, the Playstation 2 remakes, or a hybrid of both (recommended).

Also, further PS fan resources and a new podcast series with interviews of PS fan translators are located at the project website.

Coinciding with SEGA’s 60th anniversary, 2020 has seen the release of major retranslations/QOL improvements to PS1, PS3, and PS4 already. Revised editions of the Playstation 2 “Generations” remakes are in production, as well.

The Definitive Streets of Rage 2 TMNT Mod is Here!

28 May 2020 2:55PM EST - Update by eskayelle

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

eskayelle’s ultimate vision comes to fruition with this final set of mods in the TMNT of Rage series.

On an alternate timeline in an alternate universe, Mr. X and the Syndicate have fallen at the hands of those radical reptiles, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Furious with his latest failure to control the city, X enlists one Oroku Saki to capture the fearsome foursome’s greatest ally, April O’Neil.

Rage in their hearts and pizza in their bellies, the turtles jump into action, dead set on putting an end to Mr. X’s tyranny once and for all… and punish the Shredder for being complicit in the Syndicate’s nefarious misdeeds as well.

A direct descendant of eskayelle’s TMNT of Rage hack and its TMNT Remix successor, this mod adds the following to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles of Rage experience:

  • A throwback to the old 90’s arcade splash screens starts off your gaming experience.
  • A six sequence ending specific to this game, the first for any SoR2 hack out there, incorporates redesigned images from the classic TMNT II and III NES games. These images also put some artistic spins on the palettes / color schemes for a bit of extra fun.
  • Those bumbling buffoons, those moronic mutants, Rocksteady and Bebop, have now joined the Syndicate! Dumber than advertised, but stronger than ever, get ready to go toe to toe with them, Bebop making his first appearance in a Genesis / Mega Drive game.
  • An updated story in attract mode complements the new ending sequence.
  • A new title screen takes greater advantage of the Genesis / Mega Drive’s palette options.
  • Thanks to Yoni, gone are road apples in favor of a nice slice! Try not to smile the first time you hear Mikey calling out “Pizza Time!” as he grabs some grub.
  • With the additional Re-Shelled patch, play the game on a Terraonion MegaSD (or with any emulator that supports MD+ functionality) to enjoy that sweet soundtrack from eskayelle’s TMNT MD+ Remix. Grab that soundtrack here!

And… those fantastic features from the previous mods in the series continue to kick shell!

Aladdin from Genesis to NES

23 May 2020 9:54AM EST - Update by Mario Bendor

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

“Disney’s Aladdin” on Genesis is widely considered to be one of the best games of the platform, and it is often debated if it’s better than the game with the same name on SNES.

That SNES game has a bootleg port for NES made by Hummer Team and it’s often called the “best bootleg game of all time”. Two hacks were made respectively to better the game’s controls and music. So “Aladdin Hummer Team Deluxe” was made to improve the graphics, you can see a brief demonstration in this video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zH0jWL6cF4Q

The Sega game also got a bootleg port, this time made by Super Games, and it’s not as good as the other game, but it’s still a very good bootleg game. So “Soup Aladdin” was created to give that game the same treatment, improving the graphics as much as possible instead of only the uglier sprites, especially because the Genesis game is famous for having beautiful animation. Hoping to encourage other people to improve this game on gameplay and music, just as the first two hacks inspired HT DX.

“Aladdin Hummer Team Deluxe” got decent attention, so this post exists to see if it’s a bad idea, or if there is actual interest.

Have a nice day!

When others go Right, try going Left

19 May 2020 6:29PM EST - Update by C-Dude

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

When a player considers alternate narratives for Final Fantasy 3 (SNES), the mind naturally gravitates to the powerful imperial general cut down too soon. Leo Cristophe.

Hackers are aware of this. Indeed, many dig into the heart of this game trying to give Leo a more significant role. But when others go right, does not curiosity and a contrarian spirit drive you to go left?

Who would ever give Banon a second thought? He’s gruff, the player is forced to protect him lest a game-over be inflicted, and as rebel leaders go he’s a bit doughy. The game itself even writes him off, leaving the player to decide his fate when things are at their worst. He is an unresolved thread, a loose end.

So instead of turning right, this hack goes left. Who knows what waits to be found in the rough crags of this path? Will the gamble be worthwhile, or will it succumb to the elements on the cold moor? You decide.
