@Dink Another hack that is VERY good is this one:

https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/1988/

Adds a minimap, save, and many small enhancements.
It's the same idea behind the Castlevania II hack that FBNeo supports already, not a radical changes but, as they say, "quality of life" enhancements.

A recent reddit thread reminded me that some of the Famista games for the NES have English translations. They are a series of baseball (boooo!) simulations. However, it's not as simple as that. The translations don't seem fully complete, and I can't tell if they are worth adding at this point or not. That would require a player that actually likes baseball and can play them for more than a minute.

These are the links to the patches:

http://www.romhacking.net/translations/5479/

http://www.romhacking.net/translations/5638/

EDIT: On the other hand, I think these two other hacks are totally worth it. They make both Star Wars and Empire Strikes Back easier. Those games are very, very frustrating in their original form.

vanfanel: metroid mother hack is in

Neville, it's no problem if you want to play them, but adding roms is a lot of work and I'd rather only add hacks that are intended to be played.

OK. I've read on another thread that people, me included, are asking for too many games to be added to FBN and the devs are getting fed up. I don't think I have posted many requests lately, but nevertheless I guess I'm partially responsible, because I asked for tons of NES and ZX Spectrum games to be added during the last weeks.

I really don't know what I should do about these patches. I guess we can wait to see if there's real demand (excluding me) to support them, or I could use the IPS tool included in FB Neo.

@neville well, i wasn't think about you tbh, your suggestions usually seem to be about games you care about, so as long as you keep showing the same self-restraint i don't see any issue with your requests

I am all in for the EASY mode patches for Star Wars (and Empire!) that Neville suggested. The game was awesome (I have great memories from it) but also veeeeery frustrating originally.
That patch made my day! :D

I appreciate you saying this. However, since I became a regular in this board, my main activity has been game requests. And if you compare the time devs must spend implementing them with my actual playing time, well...  :redface:

Let's say I prefer setting up things to work than actually working.

Sure, I'll PM you in the next hours. The link with "easy" patches was not a request, just a tip for vanfanel if he found other NES games too difficult.

That RoboCop 2 patch, on the other hand... it's the only version of the game I play these days, and I just learned there's a new version of the patch.
