Reverted changes from earlier today related to The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. Turns out that I goofed and did not realize that the new version by Alex Trush is still a work-in-progress and not playable yet. Oops.

About the "Corruptors", "Restrictions" and "Bingo" stuff, I have come to the following conclusions:

For these reasons, I no longer feel that awareness of these tools justifies their inclusion on a randomizer list. Therefore, I have decided to remove these categories and their content altogether. As a side-effect, this will also allow me to dedicate more time to the main list. Here is a backup in case others want to pick them up and continue from where I left off. I will consider linking to such successor lists if they become a reality.

Alright, well even the abridged list is now too long to fit in a single ROMHacking.net post despite its minimalist design (last iteration was 14746 characters out of 15000). I might be able to tweak it, but I'm going to have the same problem in an iteration or two anyway. Besides, it was starting to be a pain to continuously update 2 similar lists but with with some elements missing between them, and written in different markup languages (BBCodes vs Markdown).

For these reasons, I decided to remove the abridged list from ROMHacking.net. From now on, the BIG list of randomizers will be available exclusively on my blog.

This was not an easy choice, but I believe it is the best thing to do for its continued development. I never expected my list to grow to its current scale nor become a common reference, and it's all thanks to you! I will continue to follow the original ROMHacking.net thread and post updates of any changes there, just like before.

Note that I'll keep the old list in strikethrough on the original post for a while during the transition period just in case.

Added a bunch of randomizers for Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, big thanks to Zephiles for sharing them!

The list is now too long to fit on the original ROMHacking.net post!! I kept only the non-passive & non-deprecated randomizers on it. The full list is now on my blog.

Added bingo boards (blog only).

Added non-game-specific corruptors (blog only).

I've added a second Final Fantasy IV roguelike by abyssonym it to the list, and I'll keep the old one there too until I can figure out if it needs to be moved to the deprecated section or not.

I've also added a new Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow item randomizer, also by abyssonym!

By the way, there are two The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past randomizers floating around now. I've added the new one by Veetorp to the main list, and moved the old one by Dessyreqt to the deprecated section, because the latter has been seemingly abandoned and has been used as a base for the new one. It has many new features and bugfixes, so I highly recommend you check it out!

I also found a convenient HUD for that last randomizer that I've added alongside it that should be convenient for Twitch streamers. There's also a version for the Super Metroid item randomizer that I've also added.

2017-02-04

Added randomizers:

I actually found two recent Metroid randomizers made within a month of each other. I'm putting snarfblam's in the main list and Netsrotti's in the deprecated list, as it seems the only advantage of the latter over the former is an option to have duplicate upgrades.

Also, to complement the Hitman passive randomizers, I also found a bunch of nice passive randomizers hosted by Trysdyn (including a Four Job Fiesta generator available all year long) for the following games:

2017-01-26

After investigation, I updated the the link for the Final Fantasy V Ancient Cave to point to ROMHacking.net instead of an archive.org snapshot for convenience.

I also updated the link to the Gensokyo no Nazo randomizer - it now has a proper webpage and many new features!

Added randomizers

Yes, this means that all main international Pokémon games released so far has randomizers. Pretty cool!

And with that, the list now contains more than 100 unique games, and that's only counting official games! I never expected there would be so many when I started. Wow!

2017-01-23

Updated the link to the Final Fantasy randomizer following the 1.0 release.

I also added a playable work-in-progress Final Fantasy IV roguelike randomizer.

2017-01-11

Added a Pokémon Crystal randomizer that randomly fuses Pokémon with matching evolution stage.

2017-01-10

Added two Hitman randomizers to the list. Although they do not actually alter the games, they generate a random set of additional requirements for each mission. I decided to include them despite the lack of in-game enforcement because they still affect gameplay.

2017-01-03

The Guardian Legends randomizer is no longer behind a registration wall! The author kindly uploaded the latest version on RHDN after I asked him for a public link. The list has been updated accordingly.

2017-01-01

Added Pokémon TCG card randomizer to the list!

2016-12-26

Added a Secret of Mana randomizer to the list!

Also added the Doom weapons mod that I had completely forgotten to include back when I added all the Doom mods.

2016-11-20

I was let known of a Paper Mario randomizer, but I've seen a few reports that it's not working. I tentatively added it to the list with a note.

2016-11-13

Added Yu-Gi-Oh! Forbidden Memories to the list!

2016-11-06

New randomizers added

2016-10-30

Merged missing entries from Kaltenborn's list

Also, I realized that the Metroid Prime 2: Echoes randomizer was merged with the Metroid Prime randomizer, so I merged the entries as well.

2016-10-23

Added a new Super Mario Bros. 3 randomizer, and moved the old one as deprecated.

2016-10-20

Clarified supported versions for the Mega Man Battle Network games, and renamed the Dragon Quest and Fire Emblem games to their official modern titles.

2016-10-19

More corruptor randomizers

More depredated randomizers

2016-10-02

First, I added a brand new id Software section, which includes a bunch of new randomizers in it (including a No Man's Sky parody) and updated information about OBLIGE. The games are:

Second, I also added a new randomizer for Gensokyo no Nazo.

And finally, I added a Deprecated section with old Doom, Fire Emblem and Pokémon randomizers that weren't on the list before. I also moved Catastrophe's Dragon Quest and Sanqui's Pokémon Red randomizers in that section, since I believe almost all of their features are included in the other ones.
