    Swapped the primary and alternative names. The original Japanese title should be used first with the translated title used as an alternate. The original name of the rom has been made the primary name. Kinda odd that the Japanese title makes more sense than the supposed translated title, but I didn't make the names I just swapped them lol.
  • Games
    Just another name swap. The Japanese name is "Lipple Island" and I figure it should be the primary name and the translated name "Ripple Island" should be the alternative. :)
  • Games
    The given name for this game was a translated name. The original name attached to the rom file and found elsewhere as the name for this game was not included except in the translation notes of which rom to use. I have made the rom name the primary name and the translated one the "alternative" name. I do believe that should be how it is. :)

SOR2 - The Return of the Fighters 2019

Hack of Streets of Rage 2

Description:

I. Overview:

This hack allows the player to play as the modified SOR3 versions of Axel, Blaze, Skate, and Shiva in SOR2. Unlike its predecessor ROF 2018, the game system has been completely upgraded.

The story is the same as The Return of the Fighters 2018. Shiva, who had become a state witness after the event of SOR3, joined Axel’s team to fight Mr. X and save the city.

II. Features:

  • Shiva replaces Max as a playable character with portrait.
  • All playable characters have SOR3 style appearances with some modifications.
  • All playable characters can run (with weapon animations).
  • All playable characters can change direction and turn around while running.
  • All playable characters can jump further while running.
  • The command to run (f, f) becomes more sensitive.
  • Players can still move after defeating each boss.
  • KO count of the players is displayed.
  • Defensive Special and Offensive Special will cost 10 KO count if the player’s KO count is greater than or equal to 10. Otherwise, they will cost 8 HP.
  • When the player’s health is less than or equal to 30%, Offensive Special becomes Desperate Super Combo, which is 50% more powerful with invulnerability.
  • Axel, Blaze, and Shiva’s blitz moves are adjustable.
  • Kickboxers cannot block weapon attacks.
  • Thugs’ names are changed.
  • Mania difficulty is directly accessible.
  • Stage selection is available.

There are two IPS files included:

  • SOR2_RoF_2019v104.IPS is version 1.04.
  • SOR2_RoF_2019v104A.IPS is version 1.04A.

The only difference is that in 1.04A, you will hear Mr. X laughing if your character’s health drops below 30%. Play V1.04 if this bothers you.

III. Move list:

  • F, FB: Final Crash (Can use up and down to adjust the position before jumping up; Invulnerable until falling down)

  • A: Dragon Kick

IV. Known glitches:

  • Shiva’s fire ball may cause graphical glitch in two players mode.
  • As a side effect of the improvement of running system, running becomes very sensitive. Player can even run with half circle forward or half circle backward.

V. Special thanks to Huo Yan, Ivex, Lee Kuo-Chiang (Li Guo-Qiang), and ZYX for their advises.
