    I'm opening this thread for those ROM hacks that one would like to play, but can't because all download links seem broken.

    I'm personally looking for 30 Day Project: Revisited, a ROM Hack by PsychoSk8r that could be found in the "Staff Projects" category.

    The download link is broken, and archive.org did not help me.
    Does anyone still have that ROM?

    Well, I'm having a hard time finding this version of the Sonic AGX. And I would like to play it again and hear the song of ACT 1.
    I dunno why, but I really love this hack, even if it looks like these generic homing attack Sonic 1 hacks.

    I feel like I see this a bit often, download links dying after a while. Especially the case with older ROMs. Recall it taking me a while to find someone with a specific ROM Hack to send it to me by asking around servers because the original download link didn't work. I feel like there should be an archive of ROM Hacks so they won't be lost through time on the internet but I don't know if there's enough interest for this sort of archival project to happen.

    Hello everyone (long time no see)!
    Does anyone have Sonic 1 NEW STUFZ by Sonic 65(known for creating a legendary sonic ROM hack: Dustin Wyatt's Epic Adventure).
    Who didn't know what I'm talking about:
    -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q3cL2sI3dvA
    -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TcQwj0684Lo
    I remember that I was impressed by the music of this ROM (in particular the music of the second video).
    Now, I remember that it was possible to download it to Sonic Retro(and also here,on SSRG):
    -https://forums.sonicretro.org/index.php?threads/sonic-1-new-stufz.9411/
    Unfortunately the links doesn't work anymore:eek:
    I searched everywhere but I wasn't able to find it...
    Thank you in advance if someone shared it!
    I hope Sonic 65 returns on sonic hacking scene:(

    here is the download;)

    Back in late 2016, I made a quick hack making fun of the SHC2016 entries (featuring bad SMPS, Blue Hill Zone, a wall background, etc.) and I lost it. Does anyone happen to still have it?

    When I have some free time, I can set up a page with all these hacks and more, have relevant links and backups in place. But there is a catch. I can't be arsed to hunt down a bunch of hacks and put them in if nobody really cares, so I want YOU all to send me these hacks, with relevant links or ROMs themselves, and I will update the page. It won't be anything fancy, just some basic details and download links, but I'll be able to keep it on my servers, and provide a mass download for local backups

    Does someone has an "updated" version of Sonic Eggland? There was one build that was avaliable online in 2011, but this screenshot looks like a more advanced version of it.
    the background is absolutely GORGEOUS, and I think I'm not the only one searching about it. There's even a fangame with the same name!
    There was another screenshot of it. With sonic faced to the ground while running through a gigantic loop, but the hack is so damn lost that this is the only screenshot of it. ;-;

    There's also another one that it's less "lost". It's was called Sonic Revved up! made by @KCEXE, It appeared online during the same time, around 2011, I even particularly have a interesting history about this hack.

    In 2014, as a 13 years old kid at that time, WAS REALLY REALLY CRAZY TO PLAY IT! I even remember installing a trojan in my dad's computer, for digging in internet too much and finding a website with virus.
    It was hard to fix that pc, and I was literally searching the download link of that hack for 3 straight days. ( T-T)

    Here's some wholesome screenshots of it. and here's a gameplay of this hack. And man, during all those years, I still LOVE Sonic's pallete and custom sprites, the pallete edits, backgrounds, and artistic composition of GHZ and SBZ.
    [​IMG] [​IMG] upload_2019-11-5_20-3-37.png
    Anyway, This one is kinda special for me. Hope you have the rom, cuz that frustrated kid is still inside me as everyone else's case. Please finally make him happy!
    ;u;

    EDIT: thank you so much for helping me @penBorefield, I was missing this older build as well! ^u^
    Also, I forgot to tell this in that post. I'm looking for the version of that screenshot. not an updated version of it cuz it's kinda impossible that the hack is still being worked on during all those years.

    So from my previous comment about an archival project of sorts, I just recalled that there was an attempt of an hack archive before... within SSRG itself. http://2003.sonicresearch.org/ssrg.emulationzone.org/archives/romhacks/index.html

    There's some old ROMs here that might be of interest to someone... but it just so happens the archive of the said hack archive didn't archive the hacks. Kinda ironic isn't it. For history sake, does anyone have any of the ROM Hacks that are listed in the old hack archive?

    Actually, some ROM hacks are downloadable, but you'll rarely find one (on the main site, not the archive).
    This one caught my eye.
    http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=78551459589457822380
    But for real, i'll archive any hack there that's downloadable. Barely anything is downloadable on that site.
    EDIT: And barely any actual pages either.

    I had never heard of this version ... it's awesome!
    Are you sure the version you saw downloadable is not the 2012 version?
    I don't think it would make sense to release the 2012 version if this version looks better.
    Maybe this picture wanted to show the progress the hack was making.
    Do you remember where you could download it?
    I did some research and it seems that the project is deleted ...
    However, I understand the frustration of finding this game.
    I spent days finding Sonic 1 NEW STUFZ (obviously without finding it)!
    After that search I was a very sad boy : (
    There is also a version of the site from 2006:http://2006.sonicresearch.org/hackarchive/
    and on this site you can download some patch (Also check you, maybe I missed something)!
    Here's what I could find:

    Sonic 1:
    -Mighty the Armadillo;
    -Psycho Sonic;
    -Sonic X (With this ROM when you find the start screen, immediately press start, or the game will crash)
    -The 7th Emerald;
    Sonic 2:
    -Sonic 2 XP;
    -Sonic 2 Ultima;
    Sonic and Crackers:
    -Sonic and Crackers (SONIC FLAMEBUSTERS);
    IPS File(these hacks not work,maybe they work on other amulators):
    -Sonic 2X;
    -Return to the Palace.

    This site also helped me, it also contains other hacks:
    https://www.planetemu.net/roms/sega-mega-drive-hacks

    I hope it was useful:D
