Looking for a good Soul Silver/Heart Gold romhack.>Soothing Silverwww.pokeharbor.com/2022/08/pokemon-soothingAnd>Refined Gold Overhaulhttps://www.romhacking.net/hacks/7752/Both seem to do very similar things (all mons available, better difficulty curve, more interesting trainers). Anyone here try either one of them?
>>10435574Not retro. Go ask /vg/ /hbg/.
>>10435574All these hacks and none focus on fixing the slow ass gameplay.It's a solved problem too, since there's individual cheats for things like always running, instant text, 60 FPS, faster transitions, etc., yet nobody bothers implementing them into their hacks when it should be common sense by now.

What do you think about my font? It's for a Famicom game, first time doing this. The top is what the game already provides, and at the bottom I filled the blanks. I'm worried about the W since I didn't leave any spacing on the right like all other letters have but I don't know how else to make it while being consistent with the style. The J also doesn't have a spacing at the very top but since it's just a single pixel it's probably passable.
>>10437641Doesn't bother me but I'm cis
>>10437719I remember Ducktales 2 having a pretty clean 6x7 font. Looks like they cheated with the W too.

>>10435592Remakes are allowed to be discussed
>>10438746But are hacks of remakes allowed to be discussed? That's the real question here.I'm inclined to believe they are.
>>10438746Can contra rogue corp and robocop rogue city talked about?
>>10434050Looking forward to the release.
There was a Kaizo thread a few days ago and everyone shat on the game, why does /vr/ hate Kaizo Mario so much? I don't like it either but I thought you elitist fucks would be all over it
>>10439438Which thread?>why does /vr/ hate Kaizo Mario so much?Probably because people are tired of those kinds of hacks getting all the attention, and by design they leave little room for player expression or freedom. Not everyone is interested in playing Mario just to grind shelljumps or pixel perfect cape sections.
>>10439540>>10430634I don't play kaizo either but I was surprised by people hating on it in that thread, you'd think people would at least be impressed by the skill
>>104377198x8? I've been fucking with such one for the (cheat plugin on the) PSP for a while, check out this:https://www.min.at/prinz/o/software/pixelfont/It comes with many fonts from old games, have a look a them.(I ended up ripping DOS font out of Windows' cga80woa.fon with minimal modifications in the end though.)
>>10434050Wow, an actual something different! Very good.
>>10439545>kaizoFor spookyober for me is demonophobia.
>>10439545Design wise, It's just another kaizo hack, It has nothing groundbreaking, but since It was made by a big streamer for streamers, people overhyyped it, when it was just another fucking kaizo hack
>>10433436Dat weird hole?
>>10438478>>10439663Great, thanksSadly as I started to implement the font into the game I stumbled on a stopper. If I replace one of the Japanese characters by another Japanese character already present in the game, everything works fine, but if I replace it by a letter from this font, even just copy pasting one the game already has, then the game decides to only write FF blank instead; so now I have to figure out what is going on here. I actually wonder if this some sort of copy protection. This might be the reason why this game is untranslated since otherwise it seems very simple and doesn't have a lot of text and the only thing that seems compressed are world and enemy tiles.

>>10433064>romhacks.org (NEW!)So what's the deal here? I noticed the fastrom guy was taking his hacks down from romhacking.net (presumably to drive traffic to romhacks.org), but this just looks like an uglier version of rhdn that's missing a ton of features.
>>10442586Rhdn is ran by trannies who have gotten ridiculous with their bullshit rules
>>10442613Yeah, but what bit of juicy drama in specific lead to this? Is it just the recent scraping incident?
>>10442668romhacks.org was online before the scraping
>>10442586>So what's the deal here? I noticed the fastrom guy was taking his hacks downi texted him lolTL;DR: RHDN mods are garbage
>>10442861RHDO could really use a better site layout, because it's hot garbage right now.
>>10442861Ask him if there's any good hacks that they denied that we should all check out.I know about the dual analog armored core hacks

>>10444165nigga what? Is there a complete version of this or is it pending? I can only find a proof of concept incomplete thingy on github
>>10444541> Is there a complete version of SimCity mousealmost...i worked on it alot in the middle of the year, posted progress in these threads, got busy w life and bullshit, but i finally have time to come back to it and finish it up proper. goal is to have it released by christmas.> you posting it on _xi'll post it anywhere that will have it!

What your homebrew dream and any time working on?
>>10446037Jetpac for NES
>>10446113Surprised this doesn't exist. Isn't it fan ported to nearly everything?
>>10446121I didn't know there the unofficial ports. But yes, I think NES would be a good fit for it. Jetpac would also make for a great portable game. A GBA port with upgraded graphics would be cool.
>>10446113> Jetpac for NEStechnically it has an N64 port. the speccy is so fucking weird though compared to other systems though, you'd probably have to rewrite it from scratch.
>>10446289Is that a port? I thought it just fired up an emulator.
>>10446289>>10446296Yeah, I'm 100% sure DK64 just uses an emulator. Doesn't count.
>>10446391Let's be fair, writing emulators that ran smoothly on the N64 in 2000 is pretty impressive.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xMPGDLdmrUThoughts on this? Saw this in my recommendations tab. Personally I like how it improves on the original game with its aesthetics, although there are some obvious elements taken from Mania (mainly Green Hill 1's second half and Green Hill 2's background). The level design looks too Sonic fangame-y for me. Green Hill is way too open and rarely plays around with the setpieces, Bridge Zone's graphics don't compliment the level design well (particularly the bridges themselves) and Marble Zone is too cluttered. The bonus levels feel rushed, which was especially apparent with the heavy lag throughout after grabbing the lightning shield.Not sure if I would like the finished product.
>>10442668>>10442835Kek, speaking on this scrapping thing, I found out with was the scrapper. Was this faggot by the name of brette. He use some scrap program just to download his hack to increase the donwload numbers. The hack is a romhack of smb 1 called "super sonic".
>>10447129He is on RHDO discord server
>>10447129>>10447131The download number of the hack was more than 40000, but now it got reset by 0
>>10447137Sorry, I forgot to put the linkhttps://www.romhacking.net/hacks/6327/
>>10447124So how SNES port doing?
>>10447129>Sonic sperg crashes siteShould have guessed
>>10447131What a moron
>>10447756Well that's just a little disgusting.
>>10447756Moderator of which site?
>>10440042Ah, good revamp finally.https://553-553.itch.io/demonophobia-remake
>>10447756The absolutely state of the rom hacking community
>>10448836Could a Splatoon port work on N64? I think so.
>>10448863Since 2007 portal port run fine wine. So yea definitely can.

Just been looking over my ROMs and found that I have 3 different Pokemon Crystal hacks, Polished, Perfect and Sour. Which is the better hack of these? Or is there a better one that I've since missed?

>>10444621Why long face?
What's the best emulator on android for gbc, nes, and mega drive on low spec phones?I have lemuroid but lemuroid doesn't support multi-touch on my phone I can't press the d-pad and b or a button at the same time and I can't remap the controls either, and for some reason it seems to use more CPU and GPU power than M64Plus. I just want to play old games on shitty phone. Also retroarch isn't supported on my phone either.
>>10457063>doesn't support multi-touchSame with my phone. I've resorted to RPGs where you only need one button at a time. It's better than before where "game mode" was keeping the buttons from working at all.

Why are most Zelda hacks obtuse, edgy or both?
>>10459330Because Zelda hackers are obese, cringy or both.
>>10459330>why is something designed by Japanese dads for Japanese kids different when it's redesigned by autistic fans for autistic fansgee I dunno
>>10433402>That opening disclaimerWhat I hate most about these fuckers is their indignance and their lack of shame. I don't need to cram pantyhose, anal, maebari, feet and armpits into all of my artistic ventures.
