Tips for Buying EarthBound

September 8th, 2014 | Hacking, MOTHER 1

A couple years ago I released a program that randomizes and jumbles up the content in EarthBound so fans can play the game in entirely new ways (see here.)

People find it so much fun that now there’s a content randomizer for EarthBound Zero too, courtesy of BBGangZombie!

This program can randomly change a bunch of stuff in the NES EarthBound Zero ROM. For example, it will change enemies around and even give them new colors, names, and more!

Sometimes it REALLY makes enemies crazy!

It can also randomize NPC sprites and player sprites:

Item names and item boxes are randomized too:

There’s even a “Monkey Mode”, which will turn the heroes into a party of monkeys!

There’s more to this EarthBound Zero randomizer than just the above, so for more info and to download the latest version of the program, check here!

I’ve been streaming a bunch of randomized EarthBound, so I think I’ll probably stream some randomized EarthBound Zero sometime too – if you’re interested, my channel is here. Actually, if anyone streams or does some YouTube videos of this EB Zero randomizer stuff, let me know so I can check it out!

Pretty cool stuff. 🙂

Also, Mato, there’s a typo in your post. :3

“Sometimes it makes REALLY makes enemies crazy!”

Well. The first enemy encountered is a long stick called a “Bum Device”.

This will be wonderful.

If any bugs crop up, PM me with them on Starmen or contact me via twitter (@BBGangZombie)

I tried testing it myself best I could but I wasn’t exactly very thorough with it, so I’m sure I missed something.

Nice!

I’ve used the EarthBound randomizer/reshuffler many times, so I might as well give it a try. That is… if I can finish EarthBound Zero properly first, just for a better experience.

Ohohoho. This and it’s EB counterpart is definetly a “must try”!. 😀

@Bro: There’s already one. He even posted a link to it on the first sentence of this post!

YES! He included the source code! That’s awesome for us Linux users! Or anyone not using windows.

+It’s written in Python!

@imsohappyrightnow
Just don’t look into it, it’s messy! It’s actually the first thing I ever wrote in Python to learn the language and I just kept adding onto it… which of course since Python is cool, didn’t take long for me to pick up and have it doing things. 😉

I’m not actually very familiar with Linux and stuff, but enjoy anyway!
