Metroid + Saving Unofficial Update

Hack of Metroid

Description:

Note: This patch has certain issues at the moment. Not only are door transitions so fast that they cause improper palette loading, but the ROM also may not work on certain emulators like Nestopia or Retroarch due to the RNG for unknown reasons. This will be fixed in the next version which will be soon, but in the meantime, here’s a patch that removes the RNG in case you still want to use the other emulators: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Nmy0mXZzSa_0L6RRH_vuPol3WQ7dQs50/view?usp=sharing

An update to the famous Metroid + Saving hack initially designed by snarfblam. Based off the well-hidden 0.4 version (which included wall jumping and a corner map), this version tends to improve some of the graphical issues of that version and add in new content on top of that.

New content includes:

  • Reductions in missile door cost (5 missiles to 1 with red doors and 10 to 5 with yellow/purple doors)
  • Manual saving via Up+A
  • Restored Japanese RNG
  • Sped-up door transitions
  • Morphball glitch initially not seen in original game fixed
  • Health refilled 100% upon respawning

You’re allowed to use this hack as the base of your own hack or on other, already existing hacks (please keep in mind that the ROM of the hack must be expanded). If you would like to leave feedback on the project, please do so. This project was done with the idea of making Metroid a much more enjoyable experience, so if there’s any issues with the current version you’d like to see fixed, feel free to leave feedback or critiques in the review section. Special thanks to snarfblam for making the original + Saving hack.
