It's the way it is because nemi never actually submitted the run to the board, as far as I know.

Oh, interesting! I had no idea. You can probably afford to be coming in at 0 or even above par for Marion, not sure about the cutoff for the other two. If I have a bit of downtime in the next weeks, I'll try playing with it.

As far as I know, that's accurate, you need to win all the tourneys to unlock Mushroom.

Looking forward to weekly races again!

I'm still on the same schedule as before. So basically, I work 2 out of 5 Sundays. If I'm off and at home, I'll totally race... pretty much whenever.

This version is 'specially made for Andy.

There's nothing very special about it, literally one item drop was changed.

Thread: December Randomizer race

Started by: AurilliuxAurilliux

I'm looking at somewhere around December 18-20, just because that's when I'm off. I could also do 25-27, but that might not work as well for everyone else. I'm open to date/time suggestions!

What to do if a randomizer rom has something softlock-y (sprites blocking doors is the biggest culprit):

Have the following items prepared before you start:
1.) Have a clean, vanilla version of Earthbound ready.
2.) Know where your save states are located, and have that folder open and ready.
3.) Have your keyboard within arm's reach. 😃

What to do when you're stuck:
1.) Make a save state just outside of the area you need to get past.
(If you're blocked in the Happy Happy cultist house, step outside the house and make your save state. If you're blocked in the monkey cave, step one room back, and make your save state.)
2.) Make a copy of the save state file.
3.) Rename the copy to be EXACTLY the name of your vanilla earthbound rom. (EarthBound-Fart-Field - Copy.001 becomes EarthBound.001)
4.) Load your vanilla EarthBound rom.
5.) Load the copied & renamed savestate. (If the name is exactly the same, it should work.)
6.) Move past the trouble spot.
7.) Once you're past the trouble spot, make a save state.
8.) Make a copy of that save state.
9.) Rename the copy to be EXACTLY the name of the randomized earthbound rom. (EarthBound - Copy.002 becomes EarthBound-Fart-Field.002).
10.) Load the randomized rom.
11.) Load the renamed save state.
12.) Proceed as normal!

This Sunday, 11/22/15, at 3 PM CST. Tell your friends! All the enemies and items are random, so it might be really easy, or it might be crazy hard!

ask the author nicely to leave those sprites alone or provide the source code, that's about it

It'd be pretty simple to just load up save states outside the cultist house, monkey cave, etc and check the rom. We might have weird spots where the game will crash due to the weird sprites the randomizer chose, kinda like how deep darkness was last time.

I'm okay with it either way. We can either leave the sprites alone, or accept that we'll probably need to save state often to get around some obstacles.

CURRENT VERSION: 1.0.8, released Sept 25, 2015.

I know there was an old hard mode hack on the starmen.net forums that never quite got finished, and I remember the unfinished version having weird issues, lockups, NPCs with missing text, etc. So, I decided to slap this together.

Made using PK Hack in under a day, this hack changes enemy stats, movesets, AI, and item drops. BBRs and MBRs are removed from stores (but not entirely removed from the game). PSI Freeze is made to be less effective versus a majority of the game's enemies. Status effects will make many fights more manageable, and stat buffs/debuffs will be useful against some enemies and bosses. Item effects are almost entirely unchanged.

That being said, I haven't finished testing it yet, having finished it about an hour ago. I don't expect to have many issues, but I still recommend using save states at regular intervals. If you get a lock that wouldn't normally happen in EarthBound, I'd ask that you either save the video (if you were streaming) and/or describe what you did leading up to the lock.

There's still more that I would like to do to this hack, such as fine-tuning difficulty in certain sections of the game, custom enemies/bosses/items, etc. For now, though, enjoy!
