Hack of: Dragonball Z - Buu's Fury (U)


This is a simple hard mod for DBZ Buu's Fury.
This game simply lacks the epicness of other dragonball role playing games so I decided to enhance it a little bit :D


Changes
-All enemies have been modified
-Base stats of all the characters are changed
-Some menu text has been changed


I would have done more (for example, new in-game text would have been nice) but unfortunately, the game seems to use a strange text table and I haven't figured out how to find the text that is loaded when talked to other people. But anyways, the main idea of this hack was to make the game harder


In case someone is interested, you can find information about this game in "Hacking" zip-file which is attached with the ips-file of the hack.
You can use it to make your own hack of this game or continue researching its base from the point where I left.


Pictures
It's no good playing around with the world's strongest man...




Dragonball Hunt
When you're collecting Dragonballs in the middle of the game, you should go after them in the following order because enemies can be a lot tougher in the last areas than in the first ones of this list.

1) Thieves Den
2) Pilaf's Castle
3) Diablo Desert
4) Kyodai Pyramid
5) Fukurou Forest
6) Airship


Release information
Version 1.0 contains the full game except the possible side-quests that you're able to do after defeating Kid Buu (which is the final boss).
It also lacks the changes to the enemy data of the enemies that can only be encountered after that point of the game.

Version 1.1 SHOULD contain the full game, but it's been like 2 and half years since I completed the hack that I'm not quite sure. But I strongly believe that's the one you want to download in version 1.0's place. Other than that, I don't personally see much use in the full game patch since nothing extraordinary happens after defeating Kid Buu. You get to fight some very strong enemies and can (quite easily) level up to lv200 at that point in the game.

Rom Information
Buu's Fury ROM won't run with VisualBoyAdvance 1.80.
You'll need VBA version 1.1 to play the game or it will freeze in the beginning of the game before the other world tournament !

Haha, Trunks lost to Hurcule! What a wimp...
Seriously though, something out of the ordinary huh? I have the original game as a rom and beaten it months ago. It was kind of easy to finish if you ask me. The second (Legacy if Goku 2 I believe) was much more challenging. I might give this one a go...oh just downloaded it. Excuse me now...

Someone (who knows what they're doing) needs to make a hack of the whole Z series (at least) off of the Buu's fury rom, (fix the non-user-friendly issues with LoG1, and an update to LoG2)

If I knew how I would, lol... but unfortunately I don't, and I haven't found any information on how either (so that I might learn) oh well... maybe someone will make one, one day...

I've managed to complete the hack, almost, and the final release can now be downloaded above. As explained in the "release information", it still lacks the side-quest enemies that you can fight after the final battle with Kid Buu and I didn't bother editing them yet but still felt like I could put up a release already, so here it is :D

I'm still going to edit them later but for now, the "final" version is available.
Besides, I added a lot of information about the game itself (there are a couple of documents in the zip-file).

Can you give me a tutorial on how to hack it? I'm a quick learner, and I'd really appreciate it.

Have you found a way to edit the sprites of the game? If so, can you please tell how.
If anyone can help me with this I'll give you my custom sprite sheets.

So... I finished this simple hard mod in early 2011 (the last time I had edited the hack was in 19th March 2011 I think). I was meaning to upload the full hack then, but the ending of it didn't turn that much worth it. After all, there is not much to the gameplay after defeating Kid Buu, but I did finish the hack anyway, but never uploaded it due to that reason I think.

But I was asked about it recently, so I have uploaded a new patch in the first post now. Hopefully you guys have fun with this hack although it's a bit unbalanced in every way, but playing it should be fun either way! I've gotten some positive feedback about this hack, of course negative too, but people who have played this have found it fun in overall.

Also don't feel bad to post now after this thread being dead for more than two years. I'd even like to hear some feedback about it, if you see this now and decide to try it out.

Make sure to save often though - the hack turned out even a bit too difficult at times since I didn't do much "pre testing" before I made the changes

I never wanted to anything major with this game either.
I just wanted to find the data structures that handle enemy data, and see how they work so I could manipulate enemies easily.


Graphics, maps, texts etc. are all much "less editable". What I mean by that is that I would have had to do a lot of research to figure out how to work with them properly. All I did apart from hacking characters and enemies was to find out where character data is stored in RAM, and beside that, I found out which items correspond to which byte values. Tried to edit markets based on that information, but they didn't work the way I expected and gave up that idea back then.

I would never expected this to be on PokeCommunity.
I was just google searching Legacy of Goku rom hack and stumbled across this.

I gotta say props for doing this, because Buu's Fury was WAY TOO EASY for me compared to Legacy of Goku 1 and 2. But it was still the best for the updated sprites and transformations.

I will definately give this a go. I hope you're still considering do more with this or maybe a Legacy of Goku 2 version perhaps?

It's about time someone did a hard version mod, now it should be more fun and challenging.

*EDIT*

Was this done by a hex editor or a custom GBA hacking tool? Because it might be interested in adding tweaks myself, assuming it's not too complicated like hex editing.

There is nothing complicated about hex editing
I'm not joking at all actually - even a ten-year old child could edit a game using a hex editor if he was given step-by-step tutorial on what to do.


I've included addresses where the data of the enemies is located inside that "Hacking.zip" file. Check for yourself; download any hex editor you like, use its "Go to" function to choose an address and input one of the addresses I've documented inside that zip file (related to enemies).
That will take you to the enemy data.


There you will see several bytes that are related to the enemy (and I've even documented how the enemies work so you won't even have to guess which byte affects and what). It should be simple enough for anybody, who hasn't done any hex editing before, to understand


And at least the enemy data in Legacy of Goku 2 should be very similar to this since I checked it out too when I made this hack. I just didn't feel like making yet another hack with the same purpose.
