Editroid 3.7

Version 3.7 of Editroid is available. You can get it at Romhacking.net’s page for Editroid. Version 3.7 adds support for multiple ASM files to manage more complex ASM hacks.

Editroid 3.6

A new version of Editroid has been released with some bug fixes (namely a bug that prevented certain screen-load code from running). Grab it from the RHDN Editroid page. Everything should work the same as Editroid 3.5, except fewer bugs.

Mountain Challenge by Trax

From Trax, the author of the Contra hack Revenge of the Red Falcon, comes an early Christmas present: a nifty Contra hack titled Mountain Challenge. It’s short, but sweet. It’s a one-level hack where you race to the top of the mountain as fast as possible. The difficulty is dialed back a couple of notches compared to Revenge of the Red Falcon, but you’ll have plenty of chances to die running full speed ahead, trying to top your best time.

ROM Hasher 1.0

ROM Hasher calculates hashes and looks ROMs up in a ROM database to help identify and verify ROM images. This tool is geared toward romhacking.net for the purpose of generating ROM hashes to include with hack/translation submissions and for verifying ROMs before applying patches.

Editroid 3.5

Time to release a new version of my Metroid editor. This version allows you to add ASM to each screen that will run when the screen loads. It includes a built-in assembler so you can do everything right in Editroid.

Combificator

I’ve decided to share a very old and imcomplete program I wrote a very long time ago. Combificator was a tool to edit the vertical columns that screens in The Legend of Zelda are constructed from. The program was abandoned because it kept causing strange glitches in the ROMs

MaruMari: Project Outline

This is an outline for the MaruMari homebrew project I’m working on for NES. As of posting this outline, the game is very incomplete. Things are subject to change, and suggestions are welcome.

Suite-NES 101

Since it seems like this project is never going to get finished, I’m going to release what I have so far. Maybe input from others will help me focus and get things done. Worst case, if I never finish the project, at least I’ll have released something. So, here’s a quick guide to Suite-NES.

FCEUX Debug File Format

Just in case anybody else ever needs to know the format for FCEUX’s debugger’s config files (.deb), here it is, based on the source code for version 2.1.5 (found in \src\drivers\win\pref.cpp) and the contents of actual .deb files.

Editroid 3.0
