A few years back I wanted to learn the C# language and how to make Windows programs. So I taught myself by making a program that randomizes a lot of the elements in EarthBound to create the EarthBound Reshuffler! Since then, many other programmers have wanted to know how the reshuffler works. I’ve received many requests for the source code, but I could never find the latest version. Until no...Read More »

Last night was Monday, which meant a new edition of EarthBound Central Live! We did a lot last night, we talked about recent EarthBound news -including Satoru Iwata’s passing, we shared e-mails and submissions from EarthBound Central viewers, and we played more of my new creation: Twitch vs. EarthBound! We also held a Q&A session during Twitch vs. EarthBound, but there were so many que...Read More »

Chaos Rush recently posted on the Romhacking.Net forums about a color restoration patch for the MOTHER 1 side of MOTHER 1+2 on the GBA: As some of you may know, a lot of GBA games have brightened, washed out colors in order to make it easier to see on an unlit GBA. This is a patch for *Mother 1+2* for GBA that restores the colors back to what they were on NES (just the Mother 1 side of the ROM, I...Read More »

About four years ago I posted about why I translated the MOTHER 1 side of MOTHER 1+2 but not the MOTHER 2 side – basically, MOTHER 2 and EarthBound have a really messy text system that would’ve taken me forever to untangle. Jeffman’s been plugging away at the problem for the past few years, though, and finally things are looking up! If you recall, I did a basic menu translation f...Read More »

I shared this during the last EarthBound Central live stream, but it’s awesome enough that I want to share it here on the site too! Basically, the EarthBound Zero / MOTHER 1 remake hack for the EarthBound ROM is making significant progress, and vince94 recently did a custom version of Pollyanna for the hack, using EarthBound’s music engine. It turned out amazing: Audio clip: Adobe Flas...Read More »

A very common question I’ve had over the last year or two – especially within the last few months – is, “I’ve found this version of EarthBound called ‘EarthBound Uncut’ on eBay. Is it an official release? What’s the deal?” It’s true – EarthBound Uncut cartridges have suddenly sprung up everywhere and in a bunch of different forms! H...Read More »

The creator of the impressive Hyperbound EarthBound hack has been working diligently on one of the biggest EarthBound hacks ever, called Unearthed. It’s a little bit different from your standard EarthBound hack, though: Unearthed is centered around a fairly simple plot – one that draws influences from Labyrinth, Cave Story, Fraggle Rock and many other sources. Through a series of unlikely ...Read More »

DragonDePlatino has released a new ROM hack for EarthBound Zero that changes the game in many neat, interesting ways!

All enemy graphics, NPC sprites and tiles are be redrawn from scratch to be more faithful to the clay models. The goofy enemies are goofier a...Read More »
