Joji Fuku O Kite: In Which For The Player's Amusement, Young Girls Do NOT Strip

04 April 2013 3:39PM EST - Update by Flake

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

Having learned some of the history of Nintendo’s classic old 8-bit system and how the company tried to enforce content controls through its licensing scheme, the unlicensed games that somehow managed to escape this censorship always seemed rather fascinating. As might be expected, a lot of these “unofficial” games were just about as low-brow and sleazy as the Nintendo’s publicists warned us they would be. A remarkable number of them, including the subject this latest experiment, Idol Shisen Mahjong, featured pictures of naked women.

As many half-witted humorists have already pointed out, if pictures of naked women are all one wants, enormous sections of the internet are dedicated to nothing else. The pictures in these old games are interesting not so much because of their blatant appeal to players’ baser instincts, but simply because they are pictures someone saw fit to adapt to the system’s primitive 8-bit color scheme. With some effort, it seemed one could turn these old games to more truly artistic purposes; hence the decision to hack a game that was already a hack of another game (AVE’s Tiles of Fate, in case anybody is asking).

Whereas most of these old play-for-the-pretty-pictures games were either ridiculously easy to win (AV Poker comes to mind) or else well-nigh impossible (e.g. Miss Peach World), Idol Shisen Mahjong seems both sufficiently challenging and winnable to merit playing it. It also had an ample supply of material to hack: two title screens, twelve pictures (of four women), an ending screen, and even the menus.

Since graphics hacks are a dime a dozen for old NES games and the music of Idol Shisen Mahjong gets very irritating very quickly, this is also intended to be a full musical hack. Though this lone hacker is no musician and certainly no composer, certain people who are provided five fairly famous old tunes capable of being adapted to fit the minimalist and repetitive style of 8-bit music and, more importantly, the very tight space into which the game’s original tunes had been squeezed.

Most of these songs should be recognizable to people from… a certain generation. If they seem unrecognizable, one should try playing them for one’s parents and grandparents to see if they recognize them. If one happens to recognize all of them… well, no prizes are available for such impressive knowledge of such trivial matters, but as TV Tropes (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AWinnerIsYou) would say, “A Winner Is You!”

While playing, one may notice some progression in the quality of the artwork and music. This is in direct correlation to the progressive development of hacking skills, which ultimately included having to learn some basic ASM coding in order to reassign some sprites from one screen to another. With the music, this progression ran backwards while experimenting with changing the fifth and last tune in order to keep from having to move the other tracks and reassign the pointers, and then worked upward through the other tunes from there. The first tune, which plays only once very briefly for the title screens, was also the one most pressed for space once all the others were adapted, which is one reason why it’s so bare-bones minimalist. (On the other hand, so is the original performance from which it was adapted.)

Speaking of the title screens, one may notice the English one flashes by rather quickly. This oddity actually arises from having fixed an error in the original game while shuffling the sprite assignments. Unfortunately, this error seems to have been an intentionally introduced inefficiency to keep the title screens from shifting so quickly, and all efforts to reproduce it with the new sprite assignments have proved futile. Moreover, the error in the original did cause lockups in the emulators on certain hand held devices, so on the whole the game is probably better off without it.

Considering that the graphic tiles tables (all of which are altered) alone take up almost two thirds of Idol Shisen Mahjong’s ROM and the graphics pattern tables and music data (all of which are also altered) consume another significant portion, perhaps the only surprise is that the patch for this 96 kilobyte game comes to no more than a little over 64 kilobytes. In any event, with this patch, every picture in the game should now be perfectly safe for work (though playing it when one is supposed to be working is still inadvisable; competent bosses tend to frown on such frivolities). Enjoy!

Chrono Trigger - Envy Hack

05 March 2013 9:35AM EST - Update by topcat

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

Chrono Trigger is one of the most beloved RPG’s of the SNES era, and arguably of all time. It is the story of 3 teenagers that, while venturing through different eras in time, discover that the future lie in ruins due to an attack from a monstrous, evil beast named Lavos. They set out to save their world and future by defeating this monster. Along the way they travel to many time periods and make friends that will help them in their quest.

This project began in November of 2012 and was just a way to test what could be done w/ the editors that were available. It was set to be an update to the author’s preferences. As the game is viewed as “kid friendly” being that any reference to alcohol is changed to soda or lemonade in the pubs. This project was designed to correct that and make the reality of the game more consistent with real life. Due to learning of what bugs these programs can cause only as they come up during testing, this release is the fifth go through of the project, ie version 1.5 In the end most of the dialogue available in the game and in the endings had been changed one way or another. With a few ideas and desires for “better” weapons and armor, all of the deleted equipment has been made available in the game. As this was not done w/ temporal flux, the only way to put them into the game is via enemy drops/steals, so no treasure chests have been added or changed. Some of the already existing equipment in the game has been changed as well, either by name, parameters, or both. Also, enemies have slightly increased hp while giving less exp & tech points. Enough to make gameplay a little more challenging, but not enough to be considered a “hardtype.”

This hack contains spoof elements naturally as the author is a vulgar comedian. There are cuss words, adult situations, sexual references, and humor that may be offensive to some. It is not overdone, and the dialogue should not come across as “forced” to fit a joke in. Player discretion is advised.

Vs. Super Mario Bros. - Home Edition -

04 March 2013 10:54AM EST - Update by BMF54123

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

Vs. Super Mario Bros. is the arcade version of Super Mario Bros., released on the NES-based Vs. System hardware in 1986. It features altered stage and enemy layouts, increased difficulty, configurable extra life and timer speed settings, and a high score table.

This patch allows the game to be run on a standard MMC1 cart with 8KB SRAM. No custom hardware required!

It also adds the following features:

  • Pre-game menu that allows you to set dipswitches and reset the high scores
  • High score retention (when using battery-backed SRAM)
  • Correct NES colors (Vs. hardware used RGB PPUs with scrambled colors)

The patch has been tested on the PowerPak and works flawlessly. It should also work on any other flash cart or copier with MMC1 support.

Pandamar: Famiclone Mario as a panda!

01 March 2013 12:40PM EST - Update by Nerd42

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

Pandamar is an extremely rare Famiclone version of Super Mario Bros 1 (NES) that makes Mario look like a panda with a really bizarre but cute appearance, now released for the first time as an IPS patch. Changes nearly all the graphics in the game. Also includes really annoying repetitive original music. Can be combined with other Super Mario Bros patches to create strange hybrid versions.
