    Would it be possible to hack the JP Game Corner into a U ROM of HeartGold/SoulSilver?

    Because face it, Voltorb Flip SUCKS.

    It's possible but AFAIK no one has done it.

    Someone could try but it would be a lot of work and translating involved.

    Actually, yes it has been done and is entirely possible. Lemme contact my friend who has done it and I'll see what I can do about getting him to post it on here for you all.

    It's not that hard, the map is still there in the ROM and it is fully functional along with all the events inside it (you can, for instance, buy coins). The only problem is that none of the text was translated, so all the NPCs have empty speech boxes (unless I did something wrong when warping to the Game Corner).

    Incidentally, interacting with the slot machines starts the Voltorb Flip minigame.

    I made a really in-depth post about this when HGSS came out here. In a nutshell, yes you can hack the game corner back in but the actual slots are gone for good.

    The ROM isn't fully functioning... The slots graphics (and I'm guessing code as well) have been specifically and deliberately removed.

    I'd say having both the ability to buy coins AND play Voltorb Flip is the best of both worlds, though.

    I guess there's only one way to find out if they actually removed the slots code; figuring out what happens when the game calls the mini-game script command.

    They just changed out the narcs data and switched the triggers. Should be able to swap the narcs and edit the triggers. That's how my friend did it.

    Voltorb Flip does NOT suck.

    Especially if you have a calculator. [​IMG]

    Especially if you actually are good and don't need to cheat.

    I tried doing this awhile back and I got fully functional. But I broke something else and I gave up.

    Is the logic for buying coins still anywhere in the game?

    Yeah that part works. The part that doesn't is the actual slots.

    Will be interesting know what are the triggers you're talking and what they did with the original japaneese narcs, replaced international narcs, or added in the rom.
