PSYCHIC WORLD (Enhanced Colors V1.1) SMS

This hack is a great update as it modifies about 0.5 Kylobytes from the original game.

This hack, among other functions, makes the use of the color palette much more interesting, increases the visual impact, better distinguishes enemies, backgrounds of the main character, and produces a better gaming experience.

The selection of the original colors, some too similar, produced an effect of playing a NES game, more limited in color than the Master System, and camouflaged active parts of the game such as platforms, stairs, etc.

Fixed continuity errors in the colors of some enemies, for example the monster that kidnaps Cecile, does not match the later animations.

Modified sequences of presentation of the game, its phases, the menu, the final sequences and the Game Over screen.

Support has been added for modern flashcarts, as the original game initially featured slowdowns on its first load.

Added some screenshots to compare.
( The final scenes have not been captured to not reveal ending ;)

Apply the patch to game file:
Psychic World (EB) [!]. sms

Hello again.

I am upgrading a bit master system hack.

And have a question:

Main character is called "Lucia", but for some reason at final sequences, she is called "Rucia", it was possible Sega bad translated from japanese original msx game, or maybe it is wrong in picture??????

What do you think?

Fandom wiki also named Rucia

https://charactersfanon.fandom.com/wiki/Rucia

And Psychic World 2 ??????

Hi, I think is mistranslated since there is no "L" as consonant in japanese the nearest is the "R" to adapt western terms with "L", the reason japanese people can't pronounce words with "L" properly.

As for your hacks Great job!!!, colour hacks are popular nowadays, how about Ghouls 'n Ghosts next (just a suggestion if you are out of ideas), thanks.

It sounds reasonable, then Lucia

What you think about this new design more close to MSX and Game Gear versions?

Looks good so far, a look more close to Game Gear / MSX versions would be great too.

One single thing just ruins the SMS version of Psychic World. The RUN mechanic.

in the MSX version, you can run when you want to: double-tap left or right
try it here with WEBMSX: https://www.file-hunter.com/MSX/index.php?id=psychoworld

SMS version: you automatically run after 2-3 seconds of walking... This makes no sense at all... :(

If this can be fixed in the SMS version, it will be a great game. And, of course, the person who does this will be a hero :)

Hi, then maybe I am your new hero, I fixed it, double-tap left/right to run is now active.

Just now I thnk to remove or not running after time, maybe best is you run or not only "double.tapping", would you think????

Hola BcnAbel76, in my opinion the best option is to remove running after time.

I've played new patch and got fascinated by the graphics and control improvements, although the running is buggy since running by double tap doesn't work properly sometimes, found a way to run without double tap by switching left and right, just switch between left and right until the automatic running begins, it happens after 3 or 6 tries.

That's not really buggy.

Remember rom is near to full $0000-$7FFF, then I needed to simplify double tap and not running time codes

MSX vs Game Gear/Master System version:

- MSX: When you press left or right and stop pressing, character has a delay, continues walking and wait, if no press no more Lucia stops If you return pressing left or right, Lucia continues walking, if you double tap then she continues walking and after she is running

: GG/SMS: No delay, you stop pressing, Lucia Stops

Then you need to do this sequence for run RIGHT,
Press RIGHT, unpress RIGHT, keep pressing RIGHT, very important keep pressing last RIGHT, because if not game STOPS runnning because you are pressing any key

For space it can not distinguish DOUBLE TAP ( LEFT -NO KEY- RIGHT ) or reversal ( RIGHT- NO KEY - LEFT ) than ( LEFT -NO KEY- LEFT ) or ( RIGHT -NO KEY- RIGHT )

Next version may I update it and look for more code to control it and disable left-right running

I see, It reminds me of Revenge of Shinobi where there is a delay before tapping jump again to perform a double jump properly.

After a few games of this... I must say: this game went from dull to amazing with your latest patch!
Thank you so much for fixing this game :) (referring to the double-tap to run).

best regards,
