Pages: « 1 2 3 4 »
With more people adopting ARM-based devices and dumping games to carts to play on real hardware and SNES clones, it is worth mentioning there remains 265 hacks in our archive which have critical bugs, many of which make them unplayable outside of the ZSNES emulator. Hacks dependent on exploiting emulation flaws in ZSNES would only be able to run on machines of the x86 and AMD64 architectures - over time, as people increasingly move away from these platforms, many of these hacks would become inaccessible. In wanting to make our whole archive SNES-compliant and future-proof, we are still offering a Hack Fixer badge to anyone who submits a functional update to these patches. This initiative will remain active as long as there is an accepted broken hack on the site.

- You may collaborate with partners on a hack, e.g. if it's an instance of code and music causing problems, where one may have expertise in one section but not the other. Let the staff know if you had collaborators and who they are so the uploader is not the only one rewarded.
- If you want to volunteer to fix a hack, that does not stop another person from also wanting to volunteer to attempt as well: this way, incidental claim-squatting will not prevent updating the archive. It is good etiquette, however, to give one time to complete a fix, but if no activity has taken place for a long time e.g. 2+ weeks with no update, there should be no problem taking over regardless. There are many opportunities available for all. (I will do my best to note the date of the claim for transparency.)
- You may use software that was not available at the time of development, such as AddMusicK, PIXI, and GPS, so long as the behavior of the updated inserts is the same and the music used is the same song, remaining unsampled if unsampled or sampled if sampled. Removed ports can be found in various archives under the Music Moderation forum's stickied threads. It is suggested also that you can hex edit echo delays to be lower to avoid having to track down and reinsert music if music is the only thing breaking the hack, but make sure the byte after that $F1 you're seeing is definitely audio data and not ASM that you're editing!
- You may not make any other alterations to the hack (e.g. level design, dialogue, palettes,) other than to fix what is broken.
- It is proper etiquette to contact the author, if still active, or relative of the author who is still active, to see first if they are interested in fixing their own older work.
- Authors of broken hacks who are willing to revisit their previously-accepted work are also eligible for the badge.
- This is a great way for SMW hackers with fleeting interest or uncertainty of what they want to make to give something meaningful to the community!

Below is a list of hacks that, as of 21 July 2020, are still flagged "fixme":

Baw, I wanted that as a badge. :(

A forum for the project would be honestly good for the sake of organization, and for avoiding that two or more people do the same thing.

Also what if some ports aren't available for fixing? Should they be replaced?

I am guessing that it would be up to the author to fix it if he/she is still active here. If not, I cannot honestly think about replacing them as it may (or may not) "destroy" quite a significant part of it.
Here's the real badge:

I agree, but I don't have the ability to create a subforum.

They can be re-ported from another midi, or redone by ear. Or, if you're adept with N-SPC, you can trace the song data in the game or an SPC dump and rip it to text - I'm certain that AddMusic can parse this information if you put $ in front of the bytes and if all the data you're inserting is actually song data... leave that to someone like Lui37 though, since he has expressed interest.

But no, a song shouldn't be replaced with another song. It's ok if the quality of the port does not PERFECTLY match.

Just look above you...

Huh, funny. I tried fixing one of my favourite hacks to work in BSNES some time ago. Might as well submit it then.

--------------------
I can give a hand to help you guys, but... I have a problem ^^'
I have no Idea about music name or the game that came from...

I'd like to say I'm impressed with this. Usually people around here have a giant stick up their ass when it comes to creator control.
While I appriciate the idea of fixing those hacks as well as awarding those who do, I'm kinda conflicted about promissing new badges when we haven't even managed to hand out the ones promised 3 months ago

--------------------
Anime statistic on MyAnimeList:
400 animes completed ✓
6000 episodes completed ✓
100 Days completed ✓
... what even am I doing with my life?
Calm down, some badges indeed take a lot to be given (for some reason), but it's not like they'll never be given. For instance, some Christmas-related badges from 2008 have been handed only last year. Actually, I think an automated system for the score/submission related-badges will be worked on, rather than the badges given out manually; sounds like a more sane thing to do.
Besides, I think giving badges out for whoever helps out on this project is a great way of getting people in.

By the way, blatantly announcing I'm working on this one.
Turns out Keytastrophe is on that "fixme" list as well. I guess it's time to make it rise from the ashes for a last moment of glory or something.
Might as well say that I'm doing this one.
Question: What if the hack also has broken english, should/could we fix that?

This hack

This hack
Good point - while it has no objective bearing on playability, I suppose if you can reword it to accurate English without changing the meaning, it should be allowed. You won't be required to, however.

Just look above you...
If it's something that can be stopped, then just try to stop it!
I'm actually interested in this fixing hacks to work on current emulators. I will fix any songs that work on my test hack.
Good idea. I also try to make this hack compatible with SNES9x.

Edit: But there is a second problem. The game flickers for one frame into glitched graphics but it only happens if the P-meter changes its tiles but above the status bar is nothing affected.

--------------------
Okay, my layout looks ugly.
Checking hacks with emulator incompatibility? Count me in! But only music incompatibility, cause there are more problems besides music.
I know I never post, but I do check in on here often.

That said, I do have a Super Everdrive for my SNES. If anybody would like me to test their fixes on real hardware for any reason, I'd be more than happy to! I need more reasons to play SMW Hacks again. Just PM me if you have a patch to test.

--------------------
Hacks:
- 3+World (Cancelled - Download Available)
- Super Mario World Beta (2009)
Taking SMB3X. There should be a fixed version submitted anytime soon.
I know I said that a couple of times already, so it's getting old, but I'll take care of TSRPR. Just give me the time to finish TSRP2, the music-issue of TSRPR is the very next thing on my list.

--------------------

I'm really liking this idea. Guess I'll give it a shot.
Claiming this one because Touhou music in titlescreen is win.
