NBA Jam TE (SNES) Hack Released! (Double Z Mod)

02 August 2018 9:01AM EST - Update by eskayelle

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

Eskayelle has issued his Double Z Mod of the SNES classic, NBA Jam – Tournament Edition . A project two summers in the making, the hack started innocently with the discovery of Mattrizzle’s Player Portrait Replacement Tutorial and various correspondence regarding NBA Jam Hacks on the RHDN forums. Armed with this information, the initial game plan was to add Michael Jordan to the ROM, and perhaps himself and a few friends.

Learning more and more about ROM hacking, eskayelle expanded the hack to hex, text, and portrait editing (version 1), then tiles and sprites (version 2), moving into ASM hacking in his latest iteration (version 3).

Since then, the Double Z Mod has become a quintessential “Roaring ‘90s” hack, with several secret characters from the era inserted, including:

  • Hulk Hogan
  • “The Heartbreak Kid” Shawn Michaels
  • David Hasselhoff
  • Arnold Schwarzenegger
  • O.J. Simpson
  • Bo Jackson – with Tecmo Bowl-esque speed!

Correspondingly, the team order has been updated to follow the season and playoff standings for the 1992-93 NBA season, with Chicago updated for the 1996 72-10 Chicago Bulls roster and Detroit stacked with the Motor City Bad Boys. Additionally, the Rookies team has been replaced by the 1992 Team USA squad, the Dream Team, from players, to logo, to team name, to uniform palette!

Meanwhile some bugs present in the original game have been resolved:

  • The Grand Champions attract mode screen will now display certain players who have beaten all 27 teams, depending on their wins tally.
  • The injury stats will reset at tip-off of every game, ensuring that the same teams/same lineups will not experience a carry-over of injury tallies from game 1 to game 2.

With a readme that provides detailed steps regarding the process for updating the original ROM, and a fair amount of credit to some great hackers and utility developers, the game has gone from a personal hack just for fun to a proof in concept and potential tutorial document for other would-be NBA Jam TE hackers. Writes eskayelle, “Writing the readme in this manner helped me track progress and revert the ROM back to certain versions when a bug or a bad crash was encountered. It could be a good tool for anyone out there who’d like to hack the game… maybe it’ll encourage a group to consider an annual team/roster update, akin to what’s currently being done for Tecmo Bowl. I’d love to help some folks get something like that off the ground, or just share some of the other data I’ve been accumulating about the game. It’d be great to share that info with folks new to hacking or some veterans – perhaps they could help teach me a few things about sound pointers and BRR replacements.”

If you’re up for a good game of Jam or want to peruse the other features changed, please head over to http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/4097/. Constructive criticism is more than welcome, and – if you’d like to provide some mentoring on hacking ASM, sounds, etc. – or if you’d like more information on the hack or the original ROM to assist in your own efforts, please feel free to PM eskayelle directly or sound off in the forums.

Mega Man X3 - Zero Project V4.0 Complete

23 July 2018 3:28AM EST - Update by justin3009

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

This V4.0 is a complete and entirely new rewrite of the original Zero Project, thus separating itself from the original version and being more of a ‘base’ for any other future mods intended. While the general idea of Zero being fully playable is still the same, many other alterations have been added to distinguish itself from the original game and it’s previous version.

The new version started back again in late 2017 to fix up many of the original issues and went even further to include many features that were intended from the beginning and then some. A few of the new features included are a new save/load game system, the Frog Armor being properly usable on land, the Black Armor actually doing something for Zero and New Game+!

This project is technically finished, but it may receive more updates or add-ons in the future. For now, with a ton of input from the community, hopefully this ‘completes’ Mega Man X3 much more than before!

“Blaster Master” turns 30! Blaster Basterd gets us a little NEStalgic

21 July 2018 7:28AM EST - Update by Player 1

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

Well since it’s the 30th anniversary of “Blaster Master”, here’s something real special for all the hardcore gamers and NEStalgic fans out there. Now this is the first ever P1 rom hack or attempt at programming, so she’s a lil rough, but still its cool to pay homage to one of the best games of the 80s. Always found it funny how the box said “authentic arcade edition”. So what if Blaster master played like an actual arcade game? The side-scrolling levels were reduced into one room with access to all the boss levels that must be played in sequence that makes the classic title play more Megaman than Metroidvania. To retain the spirit of SunSoft difficulty of the game with the elimination of continues, it must be played with 3 lives aka one quarter. All that action is now tuned up for a boss rush catering to speed run freaks. In addition there are a few suicide traps one of which is a nod to the original Japanese version meta fight! There are few other surprises and Easter eggs you’ll enjoy. So without further adieu… Behold, a new twist to one of the greatest games of a generation; Blaster Basterd, authentic arcade edition!

Very Thanks, Player 1
