It does in the DS version, I was kicked into the last field several times after spending too much time on some pre-crab fields.

>> No.2070467

Yes, I have no idea if it's in the 3DS one though.

>> No.2070836

I used to be pretty good

When I played Umihara Kawase Shun I was able to loop myself around to the first level in about 24 minutes or so

didn't seem to find an actual ending door with credits like the SNES version, maybe I just didn't keep at it enough

I'd get absorbed in the more insane time eating levels with long trap corridors or slide shenanigans

>> No.2070842

I think one of my favorite fields is the one in SNES with the bridge that breaks, you can attach your line to the end of it as it swings to increase your momentum and fling yourself to the upper right corner where there's a ledge you can't even see unless you launch yourself that way, with a secret exit door to boot

I also really liked how some of the fields were like, other fields flipped completely upside down, so you'd die if you didn't throw your line with perfect timing at the start, because you'd fall off the top (bottom?) of the map

>> No.2071523

I think you're mixing two levels up. There is one with a breakable bridge, but the level with the hidden door at the very top right is in one of the school of fish boss levels.

Okay the hack's done. Not much to say here, but a few things:
• The doors no longer have effect on your path. This hack essentially makes you play through all 49 levels. This is the main 'thing' of the hack.
• Because the game is now way longer, to compensate the added challenge the 30-minute rule is no longer there (thanks, Princess Sevenleaf) and you start with 50 lives.
• Two of the unused enemies (the Puffer Fish and the Catfish) are featured in their respective levels. You have to play 'til you find them though.
• Save the hack and the next time someone makes a UK thread or a Rom Hacking thread, post the link. I usually don't keep things too long so if my mediafire account gets deleted or shit just dropbox it or something.


Sure, the game's now as linear as it gets, but at the same time it's the ultimate sightseeing and a tough challenge. I expect you to post your final scores.

So I found out that every time you die, you're penalized 20 seconds. So it IS theoretically possible to run out the "infinite" timer, if you die 90 times.

Oh my god, this game brings on the ultimate nostalgia for me. Back in 1994 me and my father moved to japan for the winter because of some business deal his work made or something. First week there we mostly had fun going to the fishing ponds and some of the arcades in the morning and then walking around trying to get to know the area. Few days later after coming home from temp school dad started telling me about a cool game system that was like a home arcade machine called a Super Famicom that he heard about at his new job. Started to beg for one for christmas as the days went on. Then comes the 22nd. After fishing at a pond I'm told I have to stay up super late tonight for an un-told reason. Around 11 at night I'm told to get my stuff on and get into the car. Half an hour later we stop at a store that stays open late and sells games. We walk around a bit and look a some games and beg to get a few. Finally at midnight we get in line and I jump for joy when my dad had the clerk grab a sfc off the shelf and Super Mario World. The Clerk also pulled out a big shipping box and out came a copy of Umihara Kawase. Needless to say we spent the whole next day playing Umihara and Mario. Best early Christmas ever.

New to Umihara Kawase. I recently bought Sayonara Umihara Kawase on the eShop and I've been enjoying it so far.

Though, I was wondering how is this player able to latch onto the upper platform in this video around the 9 second mark? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bQr4o-6zOWU

Is it because he has momentum before he jumps? I can't seem to reach it while I'm jumping.

>> No.2161583

You see how around the 11-12 second mark of the video, when he shoots his line while he's still in the air and once he lands he jumps again pretty much straight away? That's how he was able to reach it.

Not as fast, but you can also stand on the right side of that platform, jump, shoot your line diagonally right at the very top of the jump and jump again immediately after landing, and if you've timed everything right you'll reach it.

GIF has limited palette too. The dithering used in the graphics just reminds me a lot of the common GIF dithering artifacts.
I mean, I think it's far more likely for the devs to have had software that can downsample photos to 16-color GIFs which they then converted to the SNES 1555 BGR format with their own algos. Rather than have their own custom photo2snes software with custom dithering algorithms.

She looks like she just has a normal backpack ingame. It's not round/hard enough to look like a randoseru. It also has multiple pockets which most randoseru don't have, especially if it came from your parents/grand-parents. it's not even the same color.

>> No.2194385

get ISO, mount it, check out each file individually.
Mind you, I ripped every sprite in the game straight from the ISO and didn't find anything unusual: http://www.spriters-resource.com/playstation/umiharakawaseshun/

iirc the names of the sprite files were dead obvious so ripping them was easy. I didn't check the "level" files though, so maybe if the game has 50 levels and you find 55 files in the level folder, you've struck gold. I've never played the game.

>> No.2194518

Absolutely stunning video. It shows that you really know what you're doing and put in a good amount of effort.

I hope you won't mind if I give a couple of comments as a layman.
A low opacity bounding box around the viewport of the player might be a good way to give immediate explanation to the enemies phasing in and out of existence. It also shows with how little the player actually had to work with during the game.
The flickering water distracts a bit from the gameplay. It's of course a problem with the emulation software, but it might be solved with a de-flicker plugin in After Effects.
Because of the way the maps are ripped, a door appears behind every opened door instead of the usual monochrome background. Since this can't be helped without ripping every map again and editing the doors out of the sprite layer, it might be an idea to replace the doors in the background with a black square.

All in all, you did a great job. I would completely understand if you feel like you are done with the project, so take my comments with a grain of salt.

>> No.2194585

yeah, to be honest, I do feel it's a bit rushed. In retrospect, I could've just made a camera hack that forces the viewport to the top left corner, dump video, top right corner, dump video, etc. And stitch the vids together.

Or even made a 960x540 "full levels" of each field, like in field 57.

You got me interested so I looked into the files.
There's a large file called U3MAP.bin which I'm pretty sure is level data.
It contains 65 headers with offset and size attributes. How many levels are there in the game in total?

>> No.2194830

There's 53 fields in Second Edition, 3 less in the original one.
Some of these could be used for tutorials that are shown before the levels but that still doesn't add up for the 65 headers you found, pretty interesting!

Also what do you use to open these files? Good old PowerISO has failed me and I also didn't manage to open the .str or .xa files which should contain videos used in the game. This would be especially useful for that ending movie which you can't see fullscreen normally.

>> No.2194851

I'm a macfag, I used "The Unarchiver" on the BIN (the CUE is useless)
According to http://www.alles.or.jp/~akfy/ there are 50 unique fields, so you're right about that.

Also, I've confirmed that these indeed ARE level data. There are also eight instances in the header thats' sizes are 0 bytes. They're all duplicates though.

So, how to find possible unused levels:
• Going through each pointer, checking if there are any fields that are never really read by the game.
• With deduction, narrow down the data that is never being pointed to. Create pointer, get level.

Unfortunately though there are absolutely no unused fields for either SFC and Shun in the DS version. Hoped at least for beta fields like F49 and F65 from the japanese event but oh well.

The only interesting results came from ripping the graphics which showed some unused background objects like dog house and medallion?

>> No.2250541

I just managed to do it few mins ago, you wanna catch the whole first wave after spawning at the right under conveyor belt. Then move to the middle platform at bottom and after 2nd wave spawns you should be able to catch 2 fish easily. The ones at the end of V symbol I think. Then go up the ladder fall down and catch another bunch, all while they are still somewhat following you in this sorta circle.

After catching whole 2nd wave I started panicking so I went back under the conveyor belt at right, let them get a bit momentum towards me, get back on the middle platform while getting like 2 of them luckily and then repeat previous tactics. Then I managed to die in the next field since I had no more lives -_-

Doubt this makes sense but good luck!

+ can exchange replays wirelessly

After the tadpole turns around after having dropped the frog(s), it will start the three jumps once it sees you.
