Title: Rom Hack Compatibility Thread 2.0 (Closed)
Post by: The Renegadist on December 07, 2017, 01:25 AM
(https://i.imgur.com/Q0kiAgN.png)

     Hello and welcome back to the Rom Hack Compatibility Thread! This is the second thread, I've decided to reboot it as now I have a game plan that not only works around the character limitation but still looks nice and remains native to these forums without the need to use a 3rd party website. The purpose of this thread is to test and document which ROM hacks work on a real N64 console via an EverDrive 64 and which ones don't. This thread will attempt to cover every single ROM hack that exists for the N64 so that people can hop on and easily figure out which hacks will work without going through the process of testing each and everyone one, I'm doing that for you! With this list you will see which ones do or don't work, which ones have issues and if they do have issues you will see what the problem(s) are per ROM. Keep in mind that because this is a solo project I can't even begin to cover everything at once, if you find a problem that I missed or have information I don't have please feel free to let me know below and I'll add your finding to the list until I can test it myself. This thread is still highly a work in progress and work will be continued over time, any day that I make changes, no matter how small, will be noted both below in the change log and in the "Updated on" section in the title. Also keep in mind that this thread was created with the PC in mind so some elements of the web page me be a little off on mobile, mostly the banners. With all that said I hope people can use this as a tool to enhance their ED64 experience and will continue to do so for the entire existence of the ED64. Thanks and happy hacking!

Information and Specs:
Quote
Console: Launch Day NUS-001
Region: NTSC/USA
Everdrive Version: Version 3
Everdrive OS: 2.12
Everdrive OS Mods: None
SD Card Brand: Sandisk
SD Card Model: Ultra Plus SDHC/SDXC
SD Card Size: 16GB

Notes:
-This is all done and tested on an NTSC console with an NTSC television. This thread should work for both NSTC and PAL consoles alike but this needs to be confirmed. This should also work for previous ED64 versions but this too needs to be confirmed.
-Some Goldeneye hacks require a byteswapped .z64 file instead of the standard .n64 file to work without crashing, this only applies to IPS patches as XDELTA patches work fine either way.
-All Goldeneye hacks are tested without the "No AA" patch to avoid confusion and make things simpler. This patch removes the Anti-Aliasing in Goldeneye which improves performance on real consoles, expect performance to be better with this patch applied for all hacks.
-All hacks are tested with English/US patches, patches of any other language/Console will not be tested. It is to be expected that if US patches work then the rest will follow.
-Only the most updated SM64 hacks will be tested by version number, this doesn't include demos, multiplayer patches, or other patches that branch off of the main patch with edits done to them.
-All SM64 hacks that have a special ED64 patch will be tested only, no need to test any other patches or edits for the ROM hack if there's one made specially for the ED64. If the ED64 patch works and the others don't then the hack will still get a "playable" rating.
-Any SM64 hacks with [CaS] stands for "Crashes after Start, essentially the hack crashing after pressing start on the Mario head screen. This was done after I hit the character limit again.

Post by: The Renegadist on December 07, 2017, 12:55 PM
Hey guys, We're back up and running! So why a "2.0" thread you ask? The problem with the last thread was hitting the character limit time and time again, Krikzz raised the limit a good amount a couple times but there's only so far it can go before it's too much. Once the limit was here to stay it was either close the thread as I did for awhile or relocate to a 3rd party website to continue the project and put the link in the thread. I thought neither of those would work so I came up with the idea of splitting each game into its own post, I had sort of done this before by making the intro and changelog into their own posts but not with the games.

Now, every game has its own post which means the limit is much much farther away then before though I will eventually hit it again with the Super Mario 64 hacks. When that happens I will drop a link to a 3rd party site in the SM64 post where I'll list every unplayable ROM and I'll list all the playable ROMs here on the forums, we are a ways off but it is bound to happen some time. Anyhow, with the new thread we have new banner for each game, new banners for Solo and Multi hacks (Special thanks to Carnivorous for the poses) , more ROMs tested as of this post, and updated descriptions. I've also future proofed this thread by making plenty of reserved posts for any new games that enter the hacking scene so we're set all the way around.

Bottom line, I'm back to working on this without anything to stop me now other then real life getting in the way.

Important: If you are a part of the Super Mario 64 modding scene, please post this thread on whatever forums are used. We need to spread awareness about the amount of ROMs that are unplayable on the ED64 in the hopes of getting them fixed up to play on console + making sure new ones are playable down the line. Thanks!


With all that said, please feel free to post below and thanks for sticking with me on this project!

Well, I'm mainly testing ROMs from sources that I can directly link to on the first post of the thread, for instance Goldeneye Vault which houses EVERYTHING GE and PD and SM64 hacks. However, I'd say that SMWCentral is a valid source and will check their website out for any more SM64 hacks. In the meantime, I will add both of your findings to the list!

Since the release of the Star Rod tools (link below), Paper Mario hacks are going to become a thing now. The first major hack, Paper Mario Pro Mode, sadly doesn't work. At least, partially. You can play up to the first encounter with Bowser, but upon entering battle, the game promptly crashes.

Wow, always cool to see more hacking tools become available for some of our favorite games. I have been taking a break from this but I'd like to come back very soon and start focusing on the hacks that aren't as well known like BK, LOZOOT, MK64, and now PM.

Unfortunately I'm only taking entries that are available to the public which can be downloaded without an account and it seems that Oragami64 requires one. Unless this is the thread for the tool rather than the actual hack.

Well, I'm mainly only testing hacks that are in one place and are accessible without having to make an account for the website such as Banjo's Backpack, SM64Hacks, and Goldeneye Vault offer. If the hack is hosted on a website like the ones listed above I'd be happy to check it out.

Super Mario 64 3D World - GREEN (I played a few with Peach, Luigi and Rosalina and it was all right)
Portal Mario 64 - Orange (The gun works, but sometimes it crashes)
Source for these?

Ah, very nice, I've actually been contemplating making a small list in the first thread for single link ROM hacks so we can start getting hacks added to the list from non-mainstream sources. That and changing my rule to where I'll start testing hacks from sites that require login to download them since my job is to check compatibility for hacks and not how accessible they are.

Thanks for the post, once I figure things out I'll add your findings to the list.

Do you have a source for the hack, not the download link but the main website it's hosted on if that makes sense?

Bump, I would like to get back to working on this very soon but due to my job and other projects I don't know when this will be. Stay tuned for sure.

I'm a bit confused why there's Super Mario 64 Twisted Adventures and Super Mario 64 Twisted Adventures 2 on the list since it's one game which that only version 2 works on console. (Nym, just realised what you mean)

Therefore; Super Mario 64 Twisted Adventures v2.0 works. I made a backup patch (https://www.dropbox.com/s/6tkkpbgp7j51bzf/Twisted%20Adventures%202.0.zip?dl=0) for it

However v2.1 is broken on console.

However v2.1 is broken on console.

It's listed as two separate hacks on SM64Hacks.com which is why I added both to the list.

Also, hoping to get back into this in the coming days/weeks/months. I'd like to completely finish all of the Mario Party 1-3 hacks, all of the GoldenEye hacks, and all of the Perfect Dark hacks before I go on hiatus again. As some of you know the GoldenEye Vault was taken down or is in the process of being taken down so I'll update the list of hacks up to the point they were at before the take down, test them, and leave it at that until a replacement website is up or the old website is brought back to life and is fully functioning. Right now all of the lists are out of date as new hacks were pretty much released for all categories so expect everything to be brought up to date soon!

It's a nice day for a white we-testingacraptonofmario64andmariopartyhacks

So joking aside I just went onto SM64Hacks' website and saw they just got a new host and that most if not all of the old hacks have been re-uploaded onto a new mirror. This means that I can now (I haven't looked at every hack to see if the download link is updated and works mind you) finally finish testing every single Super Mario 64 hack that is currently out there so today since I have the day off I'd like to do so as well as test a few Mario Party custom boards as well.

With the new http://n64vault.com/ coming out I also noticed that Super Smash Bros. hacks are coming out now among others so once I finish the stuff already in my list I'll definitely be adding the info for these new games.

So bottom line, major testing happening today, hopefully we can finally finish and update the SM64 section of the list.

Edit: Also updated the first post to have all the links be in their own box which now includes the updated info for the websites and a place for single hack links for hacks not hosted on the above major websites.

I can confirm that macn64's Mario Mender 64 works on Star Road (Final) with severe slowdown, but at least it boots up and runs on console! :) I might try out the Light Edition sometime soon to see if it works any better.

So apologies to aterraformer but I just gave his reply from April 30 another go and discovered that this website: http://bruceivshankle.wixsite.com/centralocarina is actually pretty expansive and has not only a ton of OOT hacks but pre-patched and ready to go! This means that in the near future I can finally add OOT hacks to the list and begin testing!

Also note that I've started adding single link hacks onto the first post, mainly for SM64 but I'll be adding more as time goes. So with that said I retract my previous statement about only taking ROM hacks from big name/central sources. If people have hacks that are uploaded and aren't on any of the non-central sites I have in the first post then by all means drop the links in replies so I can take a look at them and add them to the single-hack list. Keep in mind that I still only accept hacks/links that can used without requiring people to login, this means if the website requires people to login before they can download hacks that I won't be using that as a source. (IE. Origami64)

On the above note, the only hacks I will not be adding to my list from SM64's stuff is the majority of Kaze's hacks due to the fact they're linked using MEGA and because they're linked in his video descriptions the links get cut-off and are unusable. If someone would like to re-upload all of his stuff onto one archive or use a host like Yandex to host his hacks then drop me a link and I can start working with that. Otherwise Kaze will have to give me the raw links he puts in his video descriptions or use Yandex for hosting his stuff.

I've tried Super Mario 64 Multiplayer ( by Skelux ) with no luck, also tried it with the experimental ED compatibility patcher.
It does Wii as a VC injection and I have a feeling it might technically work on hardware just that maybe it needs some address patching like some of the bigger ED compatible Mario hacks like 74, Twisted Adventures, Sky Stories and Sapphire.

Bump, got a new 32GB MicroSD card and am going to get back into testing hopefully tomorrow. I recently discovered a new list of hacks that is much more expansive than SM64Hacks.com's list. I'll add what I can before I hit the limit and will be testing as many as I can before hitting said limit.  Still waiting on the crew behind the new N64Vault to add alphabetizing to their lists so I can easily add ones I don't have and know what to test.

Due to the fact this new source or SM64 ROM hacks have been found I'll have everything I need to now complete the already almost complete list and will no longer need SM64Hacks to do so though they'll still be used as a source.

So just as a heads up, I am switching how I track information now since the threat of hitting the character limit once again is on the horizon. Instead of having one big thread I'm going to break each ROM hack up into smaller threads with plenty of room to do what I want to do. The main post will have a table of contents section added which will link each individual hack thread and I will continue to use the change log though now bumped up.

I ask that you do not reply to the smaller hack threads and focus your replies on the main post as has always been done, pretend like the individual hacks are locked. I will only be responding to replies in the main post and the main post will be the only that gets the "Updated on" title and the changelog will still reflect overall changes made to all hack threads.

Move is done, please feel free to let the individual threads sink into the forums now that they're all linked in the main thread.

Well, there you go. I don't know which staff member deleted all of my "Reserved" space posts for each of the ROM hack pages but someone did. It's very clear that either Krikzz, the staff, or both don't give a shit about this project of mine and really never did from day one. Sorry to those who found what I was doing useful but I'm not going to continue using these forums for my project when the staff team isn't willing to work with me and even when I try and get creative so I can continue to work on this they shut it down.

Oh well.
