    Version 1.4 was released, I looked at it and compared it with the earlier version and the original. Therefore, I decided to " update my opinion about this creation"

    Found the original archive of "Super Mario All-Stars NES (3-24-20).zip", which contains both version of the patch (for playing on hardware and on emu). The previous v3-24-20 patch was just creating the version for emulators (same as "Super Mario All-Stars NES (emu_v3-24-20).ips").

Streets of Rage 2 Restoration

Hack of Streets of Rage 2

Description:

This hack restores all the stuff that got censored and removed from the American version back to it, it also fixes the names of three enemies and changes the music on one stage as well.

Here’s what this hack does to it:

It restores Blaze’s original flying kick sprites from the Japanese version.

It restores Mr. X’s cigar from the Japanese version.

It restores the number of enemy knockouts status bar on the pause screen from the Japanese version, press the “A” button to see it.

It changes the names of Galsia, Galuda and Mosquite to Garcia, Garuda and Mosquito. Sega mistranslated their names in all versions of this game.

It changes the music on the Pirate Ship stage to play the unused “Little Money Avenue” music track.

It changes the words PLAYERS, ROUND & RD to LIVES, STAGE & STG.

Included a extra patch that will add all this stuff to the European side of the Japan/Europe ROM, also included alternate versions of both patches that will change Skate’s name to his Japanese name “Sammy” and another set that would keep the original Pirate Ship stage music intact as well.

The Pancake 2 utility tool was used to restore Blaze’s original flying kick sprites.

The 0xED hex editor was used to restore everything else.

Puts things back like they should be!

Reviewed By: Rodimus Primal on 01 Nov 2015

Finally uncensoring the game, this does exactly what is says it does. Mr. X seems more like the big boss with that cigar, and it shouldn’t have been removed in the first place. The upskirt shot of Blaze is irrevelant to the fact that her jump kick looks better. The US jump kick looks awkward by comparison.

At first I was skeptical of the added music track in the Pirate Stage, but the track it used originally was also used in the truck in Stage 2. The extra track fits the stage perfectly too.
