well, since i keep track of the DS/Wii/Xbox 360 etc.  scenes regularly i thought i would post some interesting homebrew/rom hacks etc.  I will try to post a new one each day.  If you have any questions reguarding how to use any of these patches or game modifiers simply PM or email me ;)  I will try and add a new "feature" each day so keep your eyes peeled.

[hr:2f6zvva1][/hr:2f6zvva1]

Pokemon Platinum Ultimate Hack:
-DS
-Hack

List of features:

* You are finally able to get all 493 Pokémon to complete your National Dex through catching or breeding. No more trading, event items etc. are needed. Most wild encounter areas have been altered (ie. meet a Pidgey on Route 201 etc.). Exceptions are some large caves, probably will be done later.
* Even though the legendary Pokémon are mostly encountered as 'wild' encounters (due to PPRE having its bugs yet), the way to obtain information about the whereabouts of these Pokémon is unique: Certain NPCs hint at their location, as the legendary Pokémon have all been seen roaming around Sinnoh. Therefore it is important to talk to people. Are you able to locate and catch them all?
* Obviously, legendary Pokémon such as Dialga, Palkia, Giratina, Cresselia etc. are still found in their proper areas.
* The Safari Game Pokémon have been edited.
* The 'special' Trophy Garden Pokémon have been edited. Meet most (if not all) baby Pokémon here!
* The honey tree Pokémon have been (only slightly) changed.
* Pokémon that appear while surfing have been mostly edited.
* Wild Pokémon now appear less frequently in caves.
* Various text edits, mostly in the first 30min of the game.
* A lady is besieging your house...
* Seems like the pond in Twinleaf Town now has a low and a deep water area...
* You can now buy items in the Pokémon Center right before Victory Road to stock up on your items before you take the Victory Road challenge!
* The Pokémon Wi-Fi Club is now accessible from day one! The woman that is supposed to keep you from going downwards is depressed and does not care about her job anymore...
* The GTS is now accessible from day one! The guy blocking your path is myopic, therefore you can escape his eyes...
* New starter Pokémon: Dratini, Bagon and Gible. Rival chooses Beldum.
* Dratini now learns Water Pulse (otherwise learnable by TM) instead of Leer on level 1. This has been done to balance the starter Pokémon a bit more.
* Story has been slightly changed, but really not much.
* The Trainers' School in Jubilife City has now evolved into a Professionals' School that will teach you about the system of effort values, or EVs in short, which is important in training Pokémon.
* The item descriptions for Poké Balls now also display the Catch Rate.
* The item descriptions for Vitamins now also display the EV boosts.
* Meet stronger Trainers that use completely different teams than before: Be prepared to battle Pokémon that you would not have expected in Sinnoh before. Difficulty has been raised a little, but it's doable.
* Meet a much stronger Top Four on first run.
* Meet an even way more stronger Top Four on second+ runs.
* Your rival now uses a different set of Pokémon. Be also prepared for him having the strongest team ever in a Pokémon game, once you are far enough in-game.
* Gym leaders now use six Pokémon each, making them a harder challenge.
* Other unique trainers also use stronger and different Pokémon.
* When starting the game, information about PokéSav and more is being delivered which is crucial if you want your PokéDex to function correctly.
* Every trade evolution has been eliminated and replaced:
*Clamperl does now either evolve with a Water Stone into Gorebyss or by level up (level 38) into Huntail.
*Rhydon evolves into Rhyperior on Level 58.
*Electabuzz evolves into Electivire on Level 50.
*Magmar evolves into Magmortar on Level 50.
*Porygon into Porygon2 on Level 38.
*Porygon2 into Porygon-Z on Level 52.
*Dusclops into Dusknoir on Level 55.
*Seadra into Kingdra on level 49.
*Kadabra into Alakasam on level 38.
*Machoke into Machamp on lvl 40.
*Graveler into Golem on lvl 41.
*Haunter into Gengar on lvl 40.
*The rest of the trade pokemon on lvl 38.
* You now have a Town Map hanging in your room. Well, isn't that just nifty!



this is finished, but many more features are being added and you can follow it here:  http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=153723&st=0

Tales Of Symphonia (2) Undub:
-Wii
-Translation/Redub



also, since today is the first post in this topic i will also mention another one.  simply search for "tales of symphonia undubbed" at the usual places.  there is a game modder who like to keep the English text on the TOS games but replace all of the stupid voice-overs with original Japanese ones and put the original credit rolls and intros from the Japanese versions of the game on the english versions.  Since there is no "patch" for this the only way is to looked for a hacked ISO image.

Well what the hell, ill do another.

[hr:23rqfyuc][/hr:23rqfyuc]

Jump Ultimate Stars Translation:
-DS
-Translation/Redub

This one has been out for a while, but idk if anyone has seen it.  Its a Translation patch for JUS (Jump Ultimate Stars)  that translates pretty much everything (except the quiz and the editor UI which is easy enough to figure out.  and no one will do the quiz because its nearly 60,000 lines of text to translate.)



Download: http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?zggnzw5owjz

for those of you that dont know JUS is a fighting game similar to super smash brothers, but contains more typical fighter elements.  it features characters from Several animes and mangas. Featuring characters from Bleach to Naruto to Deathnote and pretty much anything in between.

[hr:22kvo35p][/hr:22kvo35p]

The World Ends with you Re-Dub:
-DS
-Translation/Redub

patches over TWEWY US or EU with the original Jap music, Voice overs, Videos, etc.



From Gbatemp:
Quote
1. Extract the contents of the patcher archive (TWEWY_JapaneseReDub_CG.zip).
2. Take your original, unmodified EU/US and Japanese ROMs (no patches or trimming done to them) and place them in the folder called 'ROMS'.
3. Name the English ROM 'english.nds' and the Japanese ROM 'japanese.nds'.
4. Run PATCH.bat and make your choices regarding which audio components you want to patch, then let the automatic patcher do the rest.
5. Grab your patched ROM and remember to say thanks! :-)

Comic book DS:
-DS
-Homebrew

too cheap to buy a proper digital book reader?

this thing will easily read Scans of all manga, books, and Comic books.  simply Drop the .zip/.rar/folder with the comic in it, enter the author and source, check if it is a mange, and it will batch convert them!

Manhunt 2 uncensored hack:
-Wii
-Hack

Image:
[spoilers:1ouf30zh][/spoilers:1ouf30zh]

Just when you thought this game couldn't get anymore gruesome, here is a hack that will bring the game back to its original "AO" rating that ESRB gave it due to the massive amounts of gore and blood.  this is also another one  cant provide you with a download for.  simply look for "manhunt 2 uncensored" at "the usual places".  this is due to the fact that the hacked game has to be transferred as a whole rather than releasing a patch for the game.
