Dinosaur Planet Mod, Patch and Discord
« on: April 04, 2021, 02:37 PM »
Hi there,

because it was not yet posted here, I want to inform everybody that there was quite some work done on Dinosauer Planet already.
There is a patch and a mod version available which is fixing already several crashes and makes it possible to play certain passages
of the game which were not playable or even accessible before. With all the fixes it is now possible to play about 5 hours of the game without much trouble.
There are also a lot of GS codes for this game available now but they were not usable on the Everdrive since many of them exceeded the 34 line limit.
Both the mod and the patch will help you with that too.



DinoMod 2.2 features a ingame menu to choose from many options including patches and cheats.
It will be controlled with the D-Pad. Activate it any time with D-Pad right.
Navigate with Dpad-up/down
confirm with D-Pad right
cancel/quit with D-Pad left
Download: https://www.dropbox.com/s/2mbz6agokdv47rk/dinomod_v2.2.xdelta?dl=0

DinoPatch 2.2 uses the same code as Dinomod but features just the game patches and has no ingame menu.
This is intended for all those who just want to play the game or doing speedruns.
Download: https://www.dropbox.com/s/phhs8i0smia9c0p/dinopatch_v2.2.xdelta?dl=0

Apply the xdelta patches to rom_crack.z64

You can find further updates and a lot more information regarding Dinosaur Planet here:
https://discord.gg/cm6eCKKy
DinoMod and DinoPatch are made by Nuggs. You can find him on this discord too.

The discord also has a section for the decompilation of the game.
DP Decomp is made by Zest.
If you have experience in C, C++ or ASM and want to help out on the DinoMod/Patch or Decomp please feel free to join the discord.

It's great seeing such a large effort! 1000 member discord! And I am glad focus is being done on doing a ROM mod. Getting the game fully playable with GS codes only is probably not feasible. Great news!

„No AA” and „Fox to Sabre text restoration” were made by me.
The Fox to Sabre text restoration patch has one small error.
A new version of the Dino Mod and Patch is comming soon. That is why I havent posted the 2.3
No AA is also included in the Dino Mod.

Tested this on real hardware, black-screen on intro cutscene, music plays until track ends then nothing. If anyone has a confirmed working rom, could you please PM me and help me out ?

I test and play this only on Hardware. I also playtest this for nuggs before a new release.
I am in the middle of the test for the new version.

Here we have Version 2.4 for DinoPatch and DinoMod

dinopatch v2.4 dead dino edition
https://www.dropbox.com/s/ugtwdybv8ag20lm/dinopatch_v2.4.xdelta

new in this build:
- the game's main menu has been restored! and with it, the options menu is finally accessible through normal means! the same options that worked previously in dinomod will also work via dinopatch as of this build (widescreen, position, audio, display)
- klanadack can now be defeated! the game will play the victory cutscene, award the spellstone and warp you back to walled city as (mostly) intended
- defeating galadon no longer throws you in to the void and correctly awards the spellstone
- galadon phase one music has been fixed, along with many other tracks in darkice mines
- galadon intro cutscene is improved, the ice now shatters correctly and the spellstone animates
- the item pickup fix has been reworked to hopefully mitigate stability issues for some people
- some spellstone inventory icons have been fixed, including the klanadack spellstone icon (previously a CRF power room gem)
- caged lightfoot in cape claw no longer uses the model of the chief lightfoot
- settings belonging to the options menu are loaded at startup to avoid needing to enter the options menu each time the game is started

dinomod v2.4 "one hour video" edition
https://www.dropbox.com/s/xjiwmr21c6uvxq5/dinomod_v2.4.xdelta

new in this build:
- all of the above from dinopatch v2.4, plus...
- the old item pickup jingle as heard in the 1 hour video can now be optionally enabled! this setting is stored to the savegame.
- earthwalker temple (the old walled city map) has been added back into the game, and can be explored via the warp menus! note: this does not replace walled city and exists separately to it
- the "start game" menus now allow you to specify the map setup to use, where applicable. in some cases these can configure the level differently (see below)
- a cheat for infinite CRF/GP snowbike fuel has been added - use this with the above (start game -> golden plains -> map setup 6) to spawn a snowbike and freeride around the desert until your heart's content!
- an additional debug option has been added to print player/sidekick addresses/coordinates, and map info
- krazoa shrines in the warp menus have been renamed (hopefully accurately)
- portal spell cheat has been fixed (i can't read)
- sound test now translates the sound ID to an SFX.bin or MPEG.bin ID
- moved some toggles under a "settings" submenu, and removed the options menu launcher as the game's main menu now provides this functionality

Remember that you need an expansion pak plugged into your N64 for this game to work.

I've sent you a PM.

Oh yes, a Expansion Pak is needed in any case.
But in general I wont sent any WIP versions of patches.
Fully tested and functional version will be posted here on the wiki or on discord.

So I tested the rom, it didnt work. I managed to get a bit more into the intro before it blackscreened. I'm using a usa pikachu edition n64 with the red pak, why wont this game run?

Have you added the lines:

DP=50       (Dinosaur Planet Prototype and hacks/fixes)
0x906C3F77=5

into your save_db.txt file? Otherwise the game won't work. See the first post in the thread at:

http://krikzz.com/forum/index.php?topic=6126.0

for details of how to add it.
