Re: Help to find the color palettes of fighters and stages in sf2ce

$0A5868 = Balrog Sprite $0A5468 = M.Bison Sprite Those are the only ones I have in my notes other than Vega. Here's how you can track the rest of them down, though. In MAME press F4 to bring up the graphics viewer. By default it should bring up the palette screen which displays palettes that are cur...

Re: Reverse engineering ffightjh

Many arcade games from the 80's to the 90's used a 68000 as their main CPU, but depending on what era of "arcade" we're talking about, many others were used as well, such as Z80, 6502, M6809, etc

Re: Reverse engineering ffightjh

This suggests one of two things - either the hacker spent the time to create a working disassembly of Final Fight, or there was a serious leak from Capcom. Do you thing that the creator of this hack was one of the creators of the original game? Or a dumpster diver. It's a question for the ages.

Re: Can we convert Final Fight 2 to Final Fight 1?

Yeah, there's a lot of work to be done to make it playable before I can even think about reworking the sprite system. I was trying to prioritize working on things that were critical to the overall 2 player experience before worrying about cosmetic stuff. The top priorities right now are allowing ene...

Re: Can we convert Final Fight 2 to Final Fight 1?

I've thought about a couple ways of doing the character select screen without having to resize the portraits too drastically. The challenge is that Cody's portrait uses a few different palettes to get all the detail in his clothes, so his tiles have to line up a certain way.

Re: Can we convert Final Fight 2 to Final Fight 1?

It was last updated a couple years ago. I haven't given up on it, but I've been busy with arcade hacking. I do want to revisit the 2 player SNES hack one day, just not sure when.

Re: Can we convert Final Fight 2 to Final Fight 1?

The code is not similar between the two games at all. They share the same alphabet tiles but they are otherwise two completely different programs with different kinds of data. You would have to reprogram every enemy and boss from the ground up along with redoing their animation data, every effect en...

Re: Reverse engineering ffightjh

I want to examine the title screen and character select screen a bit more (so far I've determined that all of the walking characters on the title & charsel screens are enemy entities) but to satisfy my immediate curiosity I jumped ahead to the player handler. Final Fight's entity state machine uses ...

Re: Reverse engineering ffightjh

The start of attract mode, $402, is mostly the same between ffight and ffightjh, but with a couple inconsequential differences. In ffight's code, address $444 is move.l #$1F, D0 However, in ffightjh, it has become moveq #$1F, D0 What's the difference here? Well, the exact same end result is achieved...

Reverse engineering ffightjh

There is a hack for CPS Final Fight that has been known on the internet since at least as far back as 2009. It changes a number of things about the game, but most notably it expands upon character selection and allows you to play as a handful of the game's enemies. The hack goes by a few different n...

Re: Hacking Willow rom with Gecko Grabber

Sick dude! Have fun, let me know how it goes. Gecko Grabber is the result of sheer tyranny of willpower to hack CPS games. I'm not a trained programmer, so my solution to the problem isn't the most elegant. PCX format was chosen because it preserves indexed color data, while a bitmap does not. Too m...

Hi again, and many thanks for the palette guides. I have made the first sprite (stop) using the exported .pcx in photoshop, and after that loading it in Paintshop Pro for exporting it in Version 2 format. I have one problem here. https://i.imgur.com/i1ZnpXy.png The program says that cannot accept p...

Re: Hacking Willow rom with Gecko Grabber

There is a tool called Rom Mangler that grego2d wrote for splitting and merging MAME ROMs. I just tried making it merge Willow's graphics ROMs, but it seems to not like the way some of the ROMs are mapped. This will be looked into, sorry I don't have a good answer for you right now. But I might as w...
