updates seem pretty slow now

Post by wizzrobemaster on Thu 9 Nov 2017 - 23:26

i have noticed that this site does not seem as active as it used to be. is it because of hyrule magic not having a successor released or other hackers simply retiring?

The entire reason the site was created centered around the development of Parallel Universes, which became Conker's High Rule Tail. It makes sense that the activity would die down with its release. And a lot of the people involved have either gone on to other things or have retired (more than once in some instances Razz)

i was working on a hack, but HM became too frustrating too use because even when I think I have it ready, I discover that one of the rooms is bugged. is Zeldix Magic still in development or is that on a hiatus/cancelled?

You said this once before already. Read what Qwerty said. The real romhacker doesn't need a forum or to post to finish his hack.

is Zeldix Magic still in development or is that on a hiatus/cancelled?
Also answered before. Not cancelled, the author of Zeldix Magic simply quit Zeldix and moved to Discord where they update daily. However ZM is far from being finished (don't expect anything in the next couple of years).

well at least it is in development. hopefully it does not get cancelled or at least the torch gets passed to someone else if they are willing to finish the job.

I am working on a small editor very basic and easy to use that should be done probably before the end of the year i hope Smile it will probably help Zeldix Magic to progress as well.

you can see some test i've made so far :
overworld :

I have an idea, why can't someone make a homebrew editor for a zelda 3 style game for the SNES.

This way we can make SNES games and not have to worry about the legal issues.

So please don't make a Zelda 3 editor or improve upon Hyrule Magic. Just make a zelda 3 style game engine for the SNES.

HM has ruined so many copies of my roms. one thing I want to work on is to redesign the dungeons where they are more interesting. the tower of hera, for example is pretty bland in comparison to its ALBW counterpart (which in fairness is thanks to the 3D models) and Eagle's Tower from Link's Awakening, which was able to come up with more ideas and it was in 8-Bit. what I am trying to do is to keep the dungeons open to have more optional items while every dungeon has at least one optional key.

i have a test hack i use for tile set edits, and i made a wasteland version of Hyrule with blood colored rivers and lakes. i wanted to make it look more Hellish in design.

can this edit rooms and how stable is the editor?

homebrew editor Disgust if i were ever doing a game engine like zelda i would probably not make it on snes because of the limitations that would be much more efficient on pc that would take years to do with a team so i don't really think that's a good idea lol

Nop it can't do anything for now it was mostly hardcoded i'm working on a new version it progressing really fast it will be much more stable than HM but probably a bit more limited

Bad idea. You think there will be no legal issues if you are making a "homebrew editor for a zelda 3 style game" for the SNES.

This is Nintendo we are talking about. If they have caused youtubers to receive copyright strikes for uploading let's play videos or anything that comes close to using their IP when it is not even violating fair use (there is a reason why Jim Sterling keeps bashing them for these situations), then there is no doubt that they would do the same by having a C&D like they did for any other fan made titles.

I just hope Nintendo will release a Zelda maker one day, but in reality, it will probably only be restricted to Zelda 1 because the tile set is a lot more complicated than a platformer like Mario. one thing about editing Zelda 3's tile set, especially the maps is how much of a head ache it can be. dungeons are even more of a nightmare.

I said zelda 3 style game, not actually zelda 3. All long as you dont use any of graphics from nintendo's games then it should be legally okay. after all it would be a homebrew game.
