Various Sonic romhacks

Postby R9delta » October 16th, 2014, 10:08 pm

Since most popular Sonic hacks tend to be put out as just roms instead of patches...I've been putting together or fixing some myself. I figured since there is a pretty big fanbase of this stuff it's worth making a thread to dump this stuff in.

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

Knuckles in Sonic 1 (Apply to Sonic & Knuckles locked on with Sonic 1):

This one is pretty clear. Instead of having Sonic 1 when locked into S&K loading up Blue Sphere it'll do what it should have in the first place and let you play as Knuckles in the entirety of Sonic 1.

If you don't have S&K for the Sega Genesis, here's the same patch that you can just apply to Sonic 1 by itself.

Knuckles in Sonic 1 (Apply to Sonic 1 Rev. 0):

Knuckles in Sonic 1 (Apply to Sonic 1 Rev. 1):

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

Sonic 3 Complete. This is essentially a definitive and bugfixed version of Sonic 3 & Knuckles. Lots of fun stuff here

Apply to Sonic 3 locked in with S&K:

Apply to Sonic 3 by itself:
http://www.mediafire.com/download/pb64f ... c+3%29.ips

Apply to Sonic & Knuckles by itself:

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

Sonic 2 XL. Turns golden rings into onion rings. Collect too many and die of obesity. Stupid and challenging but fun.

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

Sonic 2 with Jump Dash and Homing Attacks. Pretty self-explanatory.

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

Metal Sonic HYPERDRIVE. Pretty damn awesome and original game featuring Metal Sonic. It's worth your time trust me.

Apply to Sonic 2:
http://www.mediafire.com/download/6t5d3 ... c+2%29.ips

Also some other goodies:

Play as Metal Sonic in Sonic 3 & Knuckles. Apply to Sonic 3 locked in with S&K:
http://www.mediafire.com/download/6ped6 ... 26K%29.ips

Same as above but apply to just Sonic 3 instead:

Play as Metal Sonic in Sonic 2:

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

Sonic Megamix. It's pretty amazing supposedly but I hadn't put much time into it.

Apply to Sonic 2:
http://www.mediafire.com/download/e7r08 ... c+2%29.ips

The S Factor. Another good original game. Apply to Sonic 2:
http://www.mediafire.com/download/foxp8 ... c+2%29.ips

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

I can do requests but unlike the Super Famicom translation and conversion threads they won't be as quick, and I generally won't go out of my way to make patches for Sonic 1 since there's 2 versions of it which require twice the work. Anyway I just figured I would share the ones I've fixed up thus far. Enjoy. :)

I have the Sonic 3 Complete patch from your patch folder, love it. Also grabbed Sonic Megamix. I had no idea about the Metal Sonic Hyperdrive, is the Sonic 3 patch for that strictly Metal Sonic in Sonic 3 & K, or is it the actual Metal Sonic game?

Also not to nitpick, but it's Mecha Sonic technically. Metal is the one that debuted in Sonic CD. Silver Sonic is in Sonic 2 Genesis/Game Gear/SMS.

One of my faves is Ordinary Sonic ROM Hack: http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/1912/



Give it a try, there's no specific reason not to..

The sonic 3 patch is for metal sonic in s3&k. :)

As for the nitpick bring it up to the creator of the romhack, not me...he was the one that named it, i just fix up patches and i couldnt care less about the semantics.

That ordinary sonic hack looks awesome by the way hah

I own Sonic 1 as part of the Sega Genesis 6-Pak game. Could you make the Sonic 1 hacks work with that?

It's possible yes but it would require me to re-do all of them using the cartridge you own as the basis. Unfortunately free time is not something I have in abundance these days for a request like that but if there's only one particular patch/hack you'd be okay with then sure that's fine, I can at least do that for you.

In particular I'd like Knuckles in Sonic 1. Thanks

Sure. This will turn your 6-pak cartridge Knuckles into Sonic 1. This will essentially wipe the rest of the games out in the 6 pak though while the patch is applied. Nothing I can do about that as while I can make patches to turn one rom into another i'm not to be mistaken as a full fledged rom hacker.

That's fine with me, I can turn off the patch to play the other games. Thanks again man!
