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.

Zelda Hacking: Editing Caves

Warp Caves In The Legend of Zelda, there are four “warp caves” that connect to each other, allowing the player to quickly traverse the overworld. If you try to move these warp caves with Zelda Tech, you’ll discover that either the player will still be warped to one of the original warp cave locations, or, […]

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.
