mentholcase humbly presents: DKC2: Hard As Kongcrete

Postby mentholcase » January 29th, 2012, 8:20 pm

I would like to first thank kingizor for anglicising the SDK2 Editor. I may have thanked him already, but I cannot do this enough times.

I would like to thank everyone who has made DKC-Atlas.com possible.

Latest release v2.0.1, checksum A7B7BCBC

2 minute trailer

The goal of this project was to create a new, much more difficult game, all while still feeling professionally polished, as if it could have been an official release all along. No Kaizo gameplay here (except maybe in the 1st world), folks, but still lots of new puzzles. Also, any and all tile hacking is done as smoothly and seamlessly as possible.

>> DKC2:HAK is for players who blaze through DKC2. If you cannot achieve 102% in less than 2:30, then this patch might not be for you. <<

- There are no DK Barrels (use BARRALAX!) and only one Star Barrel in the whole game (and it’s semi-hidden).
- Collectibles are fewer and farther between (each single banana should be taken to heart as something deadly serious, whether it be showing you the way to safety or to a secret).
- There are no Bonus Levels. The Lost World can be accessed after retrieving the 75x Kremkoin from Screech, with a technique every bit as intricate as the original techinique to release the 75x Kremkoin. (by the way, Screech now knows of your shortcut, so now he’s got a little shortcut of his own this time around.)
- Most DK Coins are now end-of-level targets, and those that aren’t have been stashed in all new areas (most of them). Since some of these areas can be so hard to find, an extra DK Coin has been hidden in Stronghold Showdown, making it possible to collect 41 DK Coins.
- Note that since there are no Bonus Levels, and the game includes those in the percentage completion calculation, fully completing DKC2:HAK should garnish a percentage of less than 100. Just use your DK Coin count as your "measure of completion."

I was watching someone's Let's Play with my hack, when I realized I forgot to mention:

Before fighting a boss, go to a regular level to get both Kongs, then do Start Select and go back to fighting the boss. The 2nd Kong does not auto-regenerate on boss levels, even with BARRALAX.


My favorite subtle change is the fact that ice is no longer the only surface that is slippery. Doesn’t it make sense that a wet bog and rigging under rain would be too?

My favorite overt change is the change in pathways taken in some levels, such as in Gangplank Galley, Kannon’s Klaim, and Bramble Scramble.

I have uploaded gameplay videos of every level, all without spoiling any hidden DK Coins
http://www.youtube.com/user/mentholcase ... =da&view=u

The ZIP contains four files:
- DKC2 – Hard As Kongcrete.ups
- DKC2 – Hard As Kongcrete.srm
- DKC2 – Hard As Kongcrete readme.txt
- DK Coin hints.txt

This project was made with the (U)(V1.0) version of DKC2:DKQ and patched with NUPS (http://www.romhacking.net/utilities/606/)

I sincerely hope you find the changes of DKC2:HAK challengingly fun and creatively inspiring.

Thank you and enjoy.

Awesome man! Looking forward to trying this out.

Also, I have the ability to modify level names if you wanted me to help you come up with brand new names for every level. Lemme know if this interests you!

Thanks !

Oh, and I've actually already figured out how to change level names, haha. I've done it with a handful of levels so it would make sense of some of the changes that were done.

For example, since Hot-Head Hop has no Krocheads, and you must use Dixie's slow descent to get from area to area, it has been renamed Hot-Hair Hover.

Hey mentholcase, how's this for a complete WTF?

*drumroll* ...

I'm ArichDKC :P I wasn't even aware that it was you who mailed me on YouTube about the DKC2 editor back in September, nor did I even remember that happened until I just got your mail saying this hack was finished.

It's a small (internet) world after all :lol:

By default DKC2 doesn't start with both Kongs - unless you enable hard mode. ;)

To access the cheat mode area you must go to the game select screen, highlight Two Player Contest, and press Down 10 times. This is where you enter the cheat codes. Note: pressing down only 5 times will access the sound test screen.

Hard Mode: There are no barrels in hard mode.
Cheat code: B, A, Right, Right, A, Left, A, X

Because this hack wasn't hard enough, so now we have to turn on the Hard Mode, right? Apparently, Kongcrete isn't hard enough. Try a Die-mond.

Thank you Simion32 for covering for me.

Super Luigi!, what Hard Mode does is remove the DK Barrels and you start with both Kongs. Since the hack already has no DK Barrels, "Hard Mode" makes the hack playable, otherwise you couldn't even beat the first level. So, when DKC2 is played normally, Hard Mode is exactly that, hard, but with my hack, "Hard Mode" just makes the game possible. :P

The barrels will sometimes come offscreen, which means that you will have to endure another round of Mini-Neckies before attempting to get the barrel again.

In the beginning and middle section, there is a 1/3 chance of not getting the barrel. In the final section, there is a 2/3 chance that you won't get the barrel.

Let me know if the barrels won't show if you still keep playing and it never happens for you.

RANDOM GAMEPLAY TIP:

In Haunted Hall, you MUST choose the low path in the beginning. The high path will kill you immediately and the middle path causes a weird glitch that limits your jump height.

Before August, or when I get 700 downloads, whichever comes first, I will describe the areas where all the hidden DK Coins can be found. If I get 1000 downloads, I will make videos showing how to get them. :)

RANDOM GAMEPLAY TIP: (given out about every 50 downloads, starting now)

In the first water level, when you get to the part where you first start swimming, you MUST collect all of the bananas that are grouped in squares. This ensures that the water level rises all the way to the top and you don't get stuck in a random part of the level with the water level stopped.

Here is what Cranky Kong has to say about the new DK Coin locations ;) :

Gangplank Galley - If only you could find a way up and over those pesky Zingers at the end.

Caligninous Cargo - Just before swimming up the first long vertical section, swim up the first long vertical section.

Topsail Trouble - Just when you thought you were at your highest, higher still, you must leap!

Lava Lagoon - If you need help here, then you shouldn't be playing this hack. Go back to the original game!

Barrel Bayou - BANANAS.

Glimless Galleon - You will never find it.

Krockhead Klamber - BANANAS?

Rattle Battle - Team up!

Hornet Hole - BANANAS!

Haunted Hall - It is being guarded by a defeatable enemy.

Gusty Glade - Fly!

Arctic Abyss - This is where you will meet your end.

Windy Well - Floating under Zingers is fun, but if you can, why not reach for higher goals?

Clapper's Cavern - You will never find it.

Toxic Tower - If you're a snake, then it's too late!

Stronghold Showdown - It's in the treasure chest.

Jungle Jinx - Look for the lone banana!

Black Ice Battle - Nearly the same as the original!

Animal Antics - Past halfway.

Krocodile Kore - If you're too close to K. Rool when he misfires, he'll hold the DK Coin tight, and not let go!

BONUS HINT:
Screech's Sprint - 75 Kremkoins - Go left. Go left. GO LEFT! Have fun!

In making this hack, I have discovered that it is possible to kill red Zingers! Can you guess how?

Just kidding, I'm not going to make you guess. The answer is Krow's eggs! If you want to make the first boss battle easier, use Krow's eggs to lay waste to the Zingers.

Well then, I've finally played your hack, mentholcase, all the way up to Lava Lagoon, and I must say, I have mixed feelings about it. :scratch: I am impressed at your work, but at the same time, the difficulty feels fake. Granted, you did warn us about the Kaizo first world, but I still think you don't have to resort to, say, sacrificing a Kong to complete a level. However, I'm not going to judge yet; I want to see how this plays out. :kiddycool:

One thing I do like about the hack, is how you've taken the original levels, modified the enemy placement (as well as a small amount of terrain), and made said levels practically feel new again. Yes, again. The original levels were new to all of us at one point or another! :rant:

In conclusion, while I'm not a fan of 20 Green Kutlasses and 10 Kabooms falling from the sky, I do appreciate the time and effort you poured into this hack. Now if you'll excuse me, I must return to my playthrough! :dixiehappy:

I'd edit my last post, but doing so wouldn't alert you to my progress nor my post.

So, I've made it to Gloomy Gulch, and your personality and cruel, sadistic nature :swanky: have tagged along the whole trip there, mentholcase. But since I've already debated your idea of difficulty, I'll talk about something else.

As of now, my favorite level of your hack is, undoubtedly, Rattle Battle. Besides the fact that the level plays similarly to the original (and the genius location of the DK Coin), I appreciate how, for at least one level, you didn't spam Green Kutlasses or Kabooms. Plus, you introduced the time-paradox obstacle :rattlyface: (you know the one), which I thought was hilarious. Had your whole hack been like this level, I would have enjoyed it more. However, again, I will respect DKC2: Hard as Kongcrete for what it's worth, as much as possible and necessary.

I'm still not going to judge yet, as I want to see how the whole picture plays out. :kiddycool: Your game hack, :rant: while insanely frustrating, ridiculous, and inexpensive at times, is still fun to play. Finally, I won't insult you by saying the hack is enjoyable only because it's based on DKC2. Please don't think for a moment I'm saying such. After all, it could be worse! :dixiehappy:

Ah yes, I was trying to find a way to make that level harder, which was a challenge, because Rattly is pretty much invincible. So I thought, "I wonder what would happen..." and lo' and behold, I discovered an obstacle, and my first reaction to it was pretty much the same, haha!

Thanks for the well thought out ongoing feedback. Have no doubt that it is very much appreciated!

mentholcase, as of now, I am at Screech's Sprint. Toxic Tower was terribly tart and tribulating, and I still haven't solved the mystery of Stronghold Showdown's treasure chest or Screech's Sprint's Kremcoin trick. As such, I shall wait for your word before continuing on. I'm not sure what sort of feedback you require and desire from me, but hopefully what I have provided is it.

Absolutely none. I am grateful for whatever feedback you can offer. The game should let you continue regardless if you find those secrets or not. Or were you trying to ask me to help you out with those secrets? 'Cause I would think it's still pretty early to give up on trying to figure them out, though. :)

You don't need to help me find the secrets yet; I was just asking for permission to continue. Going back to Toxic Tower, I loved how you changed the way players climb it, I just don't like having to do so, especially with Squitter! 8D I had to pull out all my web-shooting skills to succeed there! One last note relating to the Kremcoin trick, are your hints and enough, or must I perform the exact moves in the video? In other words, can I perform the feat myself without any further help, :diddywink: or do I need to wait for you to disclose more information? :rant: Whatever the case, I'll return to your hack soon enough! :dixiehappy:

Wait, Kremkoin? Do you mean DK Coin? Because a Kremkoin automatically is given to you the first time you play Stronghold Showdown. The DK Coin can be searched for when you come back to it.

For Screech's Sprint, I mean the process needed to earn all 75 Kremcoins. As of now, I'm still trying to figure out the trick, namely,
Spoiler!
how to get into the Diddy Barrel after blasting Dixie into the wall. Diddy JUST can't seem to make the jump!
.

Also, I have no idea how to break the chest in Stronghold Showdown. EDIT: Never mind, I figured out how to open the chest. But seriously, what an abstract method!

For Screech's Sprint, the same hint that applies to the majority of the hack applies here ever so just as importantly: Bananas. :)

:rant:
Spoiler!
That doesn't make sense though. The bananas, or rather, banana, doesn't help at all. Firstly, most of them point the wrong way. Second, that lone banana is just far enough from Diddy, meaning he can't grab it. Dixie can't hover the distance required, Diddy can't jump like Luigi, and there aren't any hidden hooks or barrels to blast him over. Tell me, what must I do, mentholcase? Am I going about this all wrong, are my button presses ill-timed, or am I just not good enough? "Go left. Go left. GO LEFT!" doesn't explain anything other than the obvious. Your hint doesn't give any clues to what must be done, unlike Cranky's from the original DKC 2, so please, will you be more specific? I've progressed this far, and I don't want to pack up and go home without finishing the job, but I have tried everything my mind can conceive, and yet I still can't solve this puzzle. I ask again, mentholcase, what must be done?

If you wish not to tell me, or even provide another hint (which is what I'd rather have), that is your choice, and I shan't be angry with you, just perhaps disappointed. However, I'll forget about the issue, one way or another, soon enough.


So in conclusion, do what you feel and think is right, no matter what anyone else may say.

Very clever, mentholcase. Well played indeed. Your manipulation knows no bounds, good sir. :swanky: (Assuming you're a sir, that is. I always thought you were, but that's neither here nor there. Where is it then? Probably where you hid the Kremcoins! :gnawty-lol: ) I finally figured out the trick, and let me just say, you've really outdone yourself. The secret was so manly, Dixie and I grew mustaches :dixiehappy: :winkyface: , while Diddy grew a mustache for his newly-formed mustache. :diddyrock:

Anyhow, how about that Screech race? Intensely intense, I must state. One last note, I'm going to sequence break and observe what happens. See you later!

I REALLY enjoyed this hack! I love kaizo hacks (and savestates), and this is exactaly what I was thinking. Explosions, tons of enemies, more explosions, MORE ENEMIES AND EXPLOSIONS!!!
I didn't finish it 100% (yet), but I manage to the first K. Rool duel, and maybe in some days with free time I'll finish this once for all
As I said, I really like kaizo hacks, and I was thinking in make a full let's play and post on YouTube, but I'll do it 100% (or at least try it), don't you mind if I spoil something or anything like that?
And congratulations on this EPIC kaizo DKC2! :thumbs:
