    Is it possible to add different stages to existing games? (Last Blade series specifically)

    I've been reading about the differences between the Last Blade games today and I was not aware that the first game had so many different stages.

    Is there a way to add these stages & music back into the second game and make one "Special" with everything? Hibiki is my go to character so I never had a reason to go back to the first game.

    All the mods I've across only unlock the extra playable characters.

    It's likely quite difficult. On the Neo-Geo there's two places you would need to add data - the C ROMs need the actual pixel patterns used, and the program ROMs will need information about those patterns. The game probably has some table of data about each stage, and you'd need to reverse-engineer that and come up with a way to add additional entries to it (possibly moving other things around in the process). There's no automated or standard way to do this - you'd be picking apart a good deal of the game code to make it happen.

    (And that's assuming that the two games make use of the available color palettes in a way that's compatible.)
    I turned off signatures. So should you.

    How the hell do you come to this stage in your life where you want to add extra shit to games? I wonder that, does it require extensive loneliness? no sex for the past 6.73 years? or does it just come naturally to you? all good questions.

    You could try using 1 pcb from each game
    Neo Geo AES #011035 #036442 | Neo Geo CD #0002814 #0015959 | MVS Executive | Razion 1cc Club President | NG.com Top Trader
