I'd like the developers to consider adding two unlicensed games:

- Aladdin 4 - It's the only decent Aladdin NES cart for most people anyway. And BTW, just noticed the official Aladdin is missing too.

- Street Fighter II - I know it's crap, but its friggin SF2 for the NES! C'on guys!
Title: Re: [Request to add] Some NES games
Post by: dink on September 03, 2020, 03:15:14 PM
Neville, they're in :)
edit:
I thought there was an issue with the colors in the official Aladdin, but really the game is this ugly :P

And yes, the original Aladdin for the NES looks like CGA... I hope someone got fired because of that.

Just noticed there is a new English translation for the Dragon Ball: Shen Long no Nazo (Japan). The previous one was pretty poor, apparently. The game is not a great deal, sort of a Zelda clone starring Goku, but this could be a good excuse for adding the original Japanese and the new translation to the NES roster.

The new translation is available here. (http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/5365/)

Neville, that's nice, but part of the charm of Dragon Power (the U.S. release of the game) is it's funny engrish :)
Maybe Gab75 will add this if you ask nicely :)

Can't you use the ips manager ? If we start doing that, i'm worried we'll end up having requests for all translations available on every games.
Title: Re: [Request to add] Some NES games

I'd love to see that too! And please don't forget the unlicensed Dragon Ball Z: Super Butouden 2.

Also, most of them have 100% English translations. I think the only one that hasn't is Dragon Ball 3: Gokuu Den.
Title: Re: [Request to add] Some NES games
Post by: dink on September 05, 2020, 07:28:50 PM
Neville, sure.  Regarding the patched Shen Long no Nazo, it won't work in any emulator besides FCEUX.  Perhaps try contacting the author of the patch and see if they can fix it.

I've notice you just added a lot of unlicensed games, especially Mortal Kombat copycats. I love that stuff, thank you.
Title: Re: [Request to add] Some NES games
Post by: dink on September 10, 2020, 08:08:09 PM
Neville, I'm glad you like that.  Let me tell you about the funny story that lead to these being emulated.

The other day I set out to emulate the JyCompany mapper for Dragon Ball Z Super B. 2.  - it was needed to get the English translation to work, since the translation patch only worked on the original cart rom.
After finishing up the mapper, I give the game a try and it didn't start, mapper91 not implimented..
By some stupid mistake (PSA:I make a lot of them), I ended up emulating mapper 90 (Jy Company), which took many, many hours.
The game really needed mapper 91 (Older Jy Company/Hummer team), which is a simple mapper that took under 20 minutes to complete.
derp! On the other hand, its nice to have this extra mapper.

best regards,

I'm not sure if any unlicensed "Street Fighter II" NES games is the one some call "Street Fighter III (9 Fighter) (Unl)"... but still, would you guys consider adding this patched version to the NES roster?

Super Fighter III: Street Fighter II v1.0  (http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/4708/)

(https://i.imgur.com/LQp6Hk9.png)

It adds a few finishing touches to the game so it resembles more the original SF2.

Meanwhile, I've learnt during the last few days about more unlicensed NES games, such as "Final Fantasy VII" and "Zelda: A Link to the Past". They also have English translations / enhancements at Romhacking. Would it be possible / advisable to add them as well to FBN?

Another NES request: Hostage: Rescue Mission and Japanese clone Hostages: The Embassy Mission. They're ports of the computer game by Infogrames, a mix of arcade and strategy / tactics.

Yay! :biggrin:

I'm not into RPGs (and I've tried) but I bet there's nothing more accesible for newbies than "Heroquest".

And if you like it, try "The Immortal" for 16 bit computers, NES and Mega Drive.

I won't touch rpg's with a 40ft pole :)  Early 80s arcade games, shooters and platformers are my thing.

The SNES ones with manga-style graphics are both great and accessible. If you ever want to give them a try, "Chrono trigger" and / or "Far East of Eden Zero" are good options.

I just saw this at Romhacking. It's a patch that restores censored content on the NES version of Maniac Mansion. I think it should be added to the NES roster, this version of the game is infamous because of all the meddling by Nintendo. Because, you know, in the west the NES was supposed to be just for the kiiiiiiiids.

@dink

Can you please add the Hebereke english translation?
https://www.romhacking.net/translations/1798/

Since the translated game (Ufouria) never came out in NTSC regions, it's the only and best way to play it at NTSC screen freq!

CRC32 of the translated ROM (original is  is:
Code: [Select]
crc32 Hebereke\ \(T-Eng\).nes
ac2e16e9

It's a clone of
Code: [Select]
<game name="ufouria">
<description>Ufouria - The Saga (Europe)</description>
<year>1992</year>
<manufacturer>Sunsoft</manufacturer>
<rom name="Ufouria - The Saga (Europe).nes" size="262160" crc="6453f65e"/>
<driver status="good"/>
</game>

Original ROM that the translation needs is:
Code: [Select]
<game name="hebereke" cloneof="ufouria" romof="ufouria">
<description>Hebereke (Japan)</description>
<year>1991</year>
<manufacturer>Sunsoft</manufacturer>
<rom name="Hebereke (Japan).nes" size="262160" crc="2a137974"/>
<driver status="good"/>
</game>

Also, can you add support for "Layla: The Iris Missions"?
It's an AWESOME improvement over the original game.

...And I discovered there's still no support for "Zelda: The Hyrule Fantasy" translated into english:

http://www.romhacking.net/translations/2958/

Could this be added, too, please?
Title: Re: [Request] Add some NES games
Post by: vanfanel on November 26, 2020, 05:21:09 PM
And by last, can you please add support for the original FDS Metroid translation into english?

Title: Re: [Request] Add some NES games
Post by: dink on November 27, 2020, 01:52:06 AM
vanfanel, sure thing - they're all in.  The only issue is that Metroid already has a translation - does that one need to be updated?
Is there a good layla translation that doesn't change the game or music at all?

best regards,

Post by: vanfanel on November 27, 2020, 10:18:46 AM
@dink

Sorry, had not seen the Metroid FDS english entry. No, no need to update that.

About Layla, I don't think there's a translation-only patch: acording to Romhacking, there's only "The Iris Missions", which is awesome. The new music is IN CRE DI BLE.

Thanks a lot for including them! :)

@dink: What version of Metroid FDS is this based on????
Code: [Select]
<game name="metroid" romof="fdsbios">
<description>Metroid (T-Eng)</description>
<year>1989?</year>
<manufacturer>Nintendo</manufacturer>
<rom name="Metroid (T-Eng).fds" size="131000" crc="2711adba"/>
<rom name="fdsbios.nes" merge="fdsbios.nes" size="8192" crc="5e607dcf"/>
<driver status="good"/>
</game>

The original translation by Alan Midas does NOT result on a patched FDS with that CRC32...
And the newer patch here:
https://www.romhacking.net/translations/3183/
...is based on an FDS file with CRC32 of 65F0E9FA that is nowhere to be found (no-intro FDS doesn't have it, and it's not the same as metroidj.zip which has 1b3ee73d.

@dink: Can you please add support for these gems?

-Zelda II (original FDS version) english translation
https://www.romhacking.net/translations/3177/

-Castlevania Simplified
https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/1726/

-What Remains (I saw you added support for other homebrew games, so why not this one :) )
https://iodinedynamics.itch.io/whatremains

Some Mario hacks that are true masterpieces:

-Super Mario Bros. - Two players hack!
http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/4180/

-Super Mario Bros. 3 - Definitive Edition
https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/5097/

-Super Mario Bros. 3Mix

-VS. Super Mario Bros. Home Edition
https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/1014/

-Super Mario Adventure
https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/70


Also, since Metroid FDS English translation seems to come from a ROM that's missing on no-intro, I believe it could very well be substituted by this one, which is based on an actual no-intro ROM that is widely available:

@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/5441/

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.


Title: Re: [Request] Add some NES games
Post by: Neville on November 29, 2020, 10:53:59 AM
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.

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.
