SNES Earth Bound

I was just chatting it up with the fellas over at the retro video game store and one of them told me there's no Earth Bound rom that plays all the way through and that it will cut out half way through the final boss and wipe your saves clean. I've never beat the game and was wondering if anyone new anything about this?

Also one of the guys told me that on a few nes games that didn't have save capabilities
you could do some start select reset thing and it would save your game progress as long as you didn't play another game before returning to it. Does anyone know anything about this? Cause I just bought adventure island and I don't feel like playing it all the way through in one sitting at the moment.

Depends what they mean by ROM:
If they mean by playing on a copied or fake SNES cartridge, this is correct.

If they mean playing on emulators, that is wrong. You can play Earthbound on most SNES emulators, however MESS (score mode) is not one of them.

That's a lie, on an real NES anyways.
Maybe that's a code for a fake console like a RetroDuo to save a temporary state, but that will not work on an official NES.

Re: SNES Earth Bound

Something being a "rom" wouldn't effect anything like that. When you make a "rom" you are dumping the contents of eprom 1:1 to your computer. It's an exact copy of the contents. The only reason why it would be goofed would be if there was some sort of hardware dependency that your emulator doesn't make up for.

There was a anti pirated version that freezes at the end but that's it. The start + select trick does work on some games but I forget. Be a man and leave it on pause

Earthbound has copy protection checks to ensure it is being played on a legitimate cartridge. Aside from giving you "COPYING GAMES IS ILLEGAL" screens and referring you to the United States Code statutes it will chunk your save data if it thinks it's not being played legitimately.
Most SNES emulators have hacks to prevent that, but MESS is not one of them.

I'm pretty sure that it works fine and you can finish it in both our Full and Score modes. But I am not 100% positive. Let us know if you run into any problems.

The copy protection is checking for items common in pirated cartridges which are not being used in this case so they would not be detected.

Re: SNES Earth Bound

Battery saves are allowed, save states are not.
Battery save is the type that the original cartridge used. Save states are the more modern type that are used in emulators.

They are half right. If you are playing a bootleg SNES cartidge of EB and the game doesn't pass the tests it runs to see if it's legit, there will be way more enemies than normal, the game will tell you piracy is wrong on bootup, and your game freezes and wipes all saves at the final boss pre fight speech. I've beaten the game on ZSNES before, so not a problem for roms.

Some games had battery saves like this. (Zelda 1 and 2) Most games just told you to hold reset then hit power. (Baseball Stars, Dragon Warrior, Tecmo Super Bowl). Adventure Island has no save function iirc.

There is a way to continue, at the end of 1-1 you jump in a certain spot and an egg appears with the Hudson logo inside. Hold right and hit start on the game over screen and it should allow a continue.
