Wanted: A few roms / hacks.
Post Posted: Mon Jul 19, 2010 10:28 am
Hello I was wondering if anyone had the time to give me any of these roms hacks?

Hacked games to work with 2 button controllers for starters? Such as Alex Kidd BMX Trial, Megumi rescue, Sports Pad Football and Woody Pop.

And maybe the games which require a light phaser to work with a gamepad, so they can be played on a LCD/Plasma TV.

And perhaps some 3-D exclusive games to run in 2D mode (Blade Eagle 3D and Maze Hunter 3D and Missile Defense 3D)

Oh finally I'm after the brazilian compilation roms I cannot find them anywhere? I mean the "Game Box" roms.

Any of these roms would be great!

I believe these are like the "Master Games" cartridge (and many pirate carts) in that they're hardware multi-games - you toggle the power to switch to the next game, the ROM just contains the regular game data concatenated and as a result, when you load them in an emulator you just get the first game. I have an image of Game Box Serie Esportes that was made this way; the available images of "Super Futebol II (BR)" and "Wimbledon (BR)" came from it.

Maxim could you please help me get the roms or IPS patch to make those games 2D? The rest already have a 2D option inbuilt by a code or pressing a button on the 2nd controller I believe.

The Korean version of Woody Pop released today called "Super Arkanoid" is a hack that replace paddle control inputs with regular controller.

I'd be interested in an Alex Kidd hack where you'd start with all the items.

This is a little tricky because the game clears RAM on startup and then uses those blank values to make sure you start with no items. It's easier to add them with Meka's memory viewer if that suits you; just look up the addresses from the PAR codes.

Alright. I'd have to dig into that as I've got no knowledge of these things.

Did you graft the Japanese title screen into the Korean ROM or the Korean control routines into the Japanese ROM? Diffs suggest the latter.

Interesting, as the difference between the JP and your patched ROM is very small - it makes a 92 byte IPS. This suggests the KR ROM was a hack rather than a rebuild.

There's still one final touch to make this look good...

I tried this on real hardware and it boots with a "Sega Mark III" instead of "Sega" screen.
Is it possible to change this to "Sega" screen to give it that true Export format feel?

Is it possible to make an IPS for Blade Eagle 3D?

I'm not quite knowledgeble about the process. Or perhaps an explanation of how to apply that patch to a rom myself?

Thanks in advance.

The patch I gave was for meka.pat, you can use a hex editor to edit the byte at the given (hex) address in the ROM if you need that, and then you can make an IPS from the modified ROM.

Got it working, thanks Maxim.
I hadn't realized that it was that easy to apply that patch to the rom.

Hey everyone.
Can someone fix/improve this 3D to 2D hack made by Maxim?
Missile Defense 3D: ROM[1282]=C3
Only the enviroments are in 2D, the missiles are still in 3D.
Thanks

Blade Eagle worked fine in 2D.
Maze Hunter displays a black screen.
Missile Defense needs some more fixing as stated above.

It's actually quite a tricky one, there is no central state bit controlling the view.

Thank you! This one works.

I've tested by patching a ROM and running on a Jailbroken Mega Sg. :)

Hi there. I'm interested in trying Maze Hunter 3D as a 2D game.
I am however not familiar with rom hacking at all. Could you upload the ips-file for the Maze hunter hack?

btw, is there anyone who have succeded in hacking Alex Kidd BMX Trail with control pad compatibility? Could not find any listed Hack in the forum.
