Tips for Buying EarthBound

August 12th, 2009 | EarthBound, Hacking

For many months, XX Stone has been working on a group project to hack EarthBound and create all-new enemies using ideas people submitted on the Starmen.Net forums. And it’s finally done! You can download the patch here. You’ll need to expand your EarthBound ROM properly before applying it – here is a handy-dandy EarthBound ROM patcher.

I haven’t played the hack myself, I’ve only watched the project topic on and off for a while. I wish I had time to play through it myself, but I’ll just have to read people’s comments and stuff about it for now. EarthBound hacks are pretty difficult, so it’s always nice to see hack projects reach completion.

Looks like a promising hack. Job well done, XX Stone.

Aha, is that Majora’s Mask? Awesome. I’m actually in the middle of replaying that right this minute.

Ice Sage said on Aug. 12, 2009

@fnool: I am too! 😛

This looks really cool! I have to find time to play it though, because I’ve already started school.

Komaru said on Aug. 12, 2009

Haha, I’ve been watching this project for so long-
Glad to see it’s done!

XX Stone said on Aug. 12, 2009

Whoa, I never thought this would make it to EarthBound Central! 😀 When I started this hack, I was mostly interested in taking Starmen.net members and putting them into the game that everybody loved. It took eight and a half months to finish, and a lot of people put a lot of work into this.

I’m sorry that you don’t have time to play this, Tomato, but I understand how it is.

But man, am I happy to see this finally finished. 😀

I might play this if I ever get the spare time! I like the Majora’s Mask enemy 😛

Poe said on Aug. 12, 2009

This looks cool, I want to try it :O

ector413 said on Aug. 12, 2009

Haha, it made it to EB Central. Good job, XX Stone.

Good job! :3

Son of Welcome said on Aug. 12, 2009

Well done. This took my mind off the fact that the Earthbound Zero remake project had been cancelled.

Seriously, tremendous job.

Congratulations, XX Stone, for this great achievement.(ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED, 50G, EB ENEMIES HACK)

~Oh So Korby, see you in Threed.

XX Stone said on Aug. 12, 2009

Hey, thanks everybody.

And if you’re wondering, the Majora’s Mask enemy is the Ghost of Jojora, and the Miracle Starman is Miracle Fassad’s enemy.

And that’s Clayman in the left picture. Too bad about him leaving though. We both joined Starmen.net at about the same time, so it’s weird how he’s not going to be around anymore.

That thing wearing Majora’s Mask – it kinda looks like that weird ghost girl from Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga…found in Joke’s End. Does anyone know what I’m talking about?

with that huge ugly woman right?

Drowzee64 said on Aug. 13, 2009

Wow! You guys did a great job. 🙂 It must have been tough.

Deej said on Aug. 17, 2009

Erm. One problem I found (other than the patcher being an EXE… Failmac fails at EXEs) was that after applying the patch and walking outside to actually get on with things with fighting and such…

Well, I saw about 90 other Ness characters on screen, all of which bumrushed me at once and thus froze the game upon the screen transition to the battle screen.

Guessing something needs to be done about fixing that unless the auto patcher does so. 🙁

Mato said on Aug. 17, 2009

EarthBound hacking is kind of strange so very often you need to use a very specific patcher (like the one I provided). You can also use PK Hack to patch the ROM, and PK Hack is a cross-platform Java app so it’d work on Macs just fine too. But it’s a lot of work to get it and set everything up just to patch a game. It might be best if you ask someone to patch it for you and then send you the ROM or something.

Deej said on Aug. 18, 2009

Guess I’ll try that, then. Or somehow attempt a madness runthrough with literal hordes of enemies swarming me en masse.

yetikirby said on Aug. 18, 2009

wow this mite be the first rom hack i play!

Otter said on Aug. 19, 2009

That Easy patcher thing is amazing. I’m looking forward to playing through EB with this!

XX Stone said on Aug. 19, 2009

Deej: Yeah, that’s already happened to several people. It IS caused by patching the ROM wrong. I’d suggest using PK Hack, and expanding the ROM to the largest size it lets you.

You should have made a rare enemy that would look like a magic butterfly but really is a trap!

Deej said on Nov. 26, 2009

After much toiling, what XX Stone directed worked just fine. Thanks very much!

RakureX2 said on Dec. 11, 2009

Is there a way I can make my own enemies?

Ninten said on Jan. 1, 2010

Link used Song of Storms!
It does not effect the Miracle Starman…
Majora’s Mask suffers 4633 damage!
Majora’s Mask became tame!

abdul12797 said on Feb. 28, 2010

can some one please tell me how to use it

somepartsareme said on Aug. 22, 2010

hehehe… I tried to soft patch it, and this is how it went.

“Hmm.. the police sprite is different, ok. Alright, I finally get to see some enemies! lol, lag. Wait, OHMYGODSOMUCHNESSWHY?!!!”

Hunter said on Aug. 26, 2010

I don’t think facing the Ghost of Jojora is a good idea. He starts out with PSI Starstorm α, flashes a menacing smile, counts from 3, and uses PSI Starstorm Ω as his last resort, in order. Defeat him fast.

StarFan said on Dec. 3, 2010

Majora’s Mask used PK CRASH-A-MOON-INTO-YOUR-FACE!!!!

maskedsaturn said on Apr. 9, 2011
