    Hi, anyone know if is it possible to do a upgrade for a game like Super Street Fighter 4 3D Edition to the Arcade Edition, for example, using the new rom hack?

    It sound's good..

    Is the game in question out of region?

    Or why would you need a rom hack to update?

    I don't say update, but upgrade. Add some characters, stages and sound to the actual game...

    It would require .code patching. It would be a really complicated step.

    It is but too complicated to make it automated/simpler.

    As a Street Fighter-head.... I understand what he's wanting to do.

    The main issue is that console versions of Super Street Fighter IV had DLC updates to the next release in the series, Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition (and then a free DLC update to v.2012). Arcade Edition added four characters (Yun, Yang, Evil Ryu and Oni), and v2012 was a balance update to the 39-character cast.


    Thing is, I'm not so sure that's possible, since they very likely downgraded the models for 3DS (as it was a launch title, and thus couldn't push the hardware very hard). You'd have to do a lot of work to make the 4 (9 if you try to hack to Ultra instead) new characters lose enough geometry to run well on the hardware.

    It'd probably be easier to write a new game than that.

    It‘s definitely possible,because I have used such modded code.bin to enable all of the Gyakutensaiban5 DLCS with hans.

    But to add more not exsited items instead of replacing,it will be complicated.

    The rebalance part of the updates seems possible. (and could be interesting)
