SSF2T: New Legacy v0.1 (BETA)
I worked on this for roughly 5 years, on and off.
This romhack is a compilation of the rebalance ideas i had over the years. They’re mainly either my own or from good players (non-japanese) I talked with. Some of the best HDR changes are included too, although it’s only a few.
The last month i worked extremelly hard on it, i did the stage select, the akuma select and the random select as well as all the interface changes in this small period of time.
I’m exahusted. So I ask for everyone to play it a little bit before spamming my inbox with suggestions. Unless something is clearly and totally broken, let a month pass atleast.
Also, this is still in BETA, meaning it’s not finished, so if I made some balance mistakes here and there don’t freak out. I know a lot about this game but i don’t know everything. So it’s actually expected that some stuff needs more adjustments.
I already knew i would need community feedback to really nail this down. If you care about it, discuss it among yourselves, THEN come talk to me.
BTW, replacing ST with this romhack was never the goal. I think that will never happen, not even CAPCOM can do it, let alone someone else. See this as a tribute to ST, not a replacement.
If people see this as a valid “side” game, like some people sometimes play HF or HSF2 or even other fgs, that would be excellent for me already! But if that ends up not happening thats OK too, i did this for myself primarily. This was a hobby to me, it was extremelly fun to tweak the game. I learned some interesting stuff by doing that. It certainly made me understand the game better. That is enough to me. I’m sharing it with everyone simply because in my opinion the results are amazing, and i don’t mean to be arrogant with that. It would be a crime to keep this for myself.
Also, in the future i plan to give each character additional colors. Not by replacing the existing ones, ill keep them. So for the ones that have talent for this kind of thing, your colors can be part of my hack. If you’re interest, get the pal mod program.
I’ll choose the best colors (the ones I like the most) to put in the hack.
Anyway, heres the download link: (EDIT: updated with the latest version)
The first thing everyone should do is READ THE “READ THIS.txt” file that is inside that file.
I’ll not answer questions about how to make the hack work, all you need to know is in that file. Only ask me that kind of stuff if you dont find the info there.
If you’re computer iliterate, get help with someone else.
That file explains how to play single player and online (Fightcade only for now, but i will update it soon on how to play on RedGGPO and 30th(PC)).
There are instructions on how to set it for a darksoft, too.
There’s a changelog included. It will be a long and tedious read, though. I’m a perfectionist, i’m sure you’ll notice it while you’re reading.
I definitelly didnt took the “change as little as possible” approach. But i did tried to keep the playstyle of all characters without many changes (unlike what was done for Fei in HDR, for example).
A exception to that are part of the old characters, since they’re HF inspired now. You may argue N.Cammy changed considerably too.
On the future i’ll make a PDF for that changelog, i know it can be a little hard on the eyes to read it like that. This will be addresses in the future.
I want to thank some people.
MountainmanJed/Jedpossum, he really gave me some valuable romhacking insights. I wont say that i wouldnt have “finished” the romhack it if it wasnt for him, but it would took me a way longer.
Tyrone Duke, if it wanst for him the VS screen would still have some shitty green background, with an even worse title screen. He also made the trailer for me. He was like my “art department” haha.
Some players over the GMC discord that gave me some valuable feedback.
Finally, I want to dedicate this release to my father that unfortunatelly died too soon.
