Hey guys, Labatryth here, creator of Lemmings PSP ACE(Amiga Classic Edition). Though this news is not really related to Lemmings ACE, I am writing this here because I believe it is the best place to post this. I hope I am not defying any rules. Mod DB is quite new to me.
Just recently I purchased the PSP game Hoard. It's a great game that I am sure many of you already know. But it's only available through the Sony PSN. To make a long story short, once I got my hands on the game and played a bit of it the music started to annoy me. It just didn't make sense. I mean, here I was, a Dragon, destroying castles and burning down villages and stuff to increase the overall net worth of my hoard, yet I had this techno music to play with. I was like, "Waaaaaa?". Needless to say I just thought that to be completely unacceptable, so I began to find a way to get my own music into the game.
Again to make a long rant short, after about two hours of examining the game structure and renaming, deleting, renaming again and compiling, I DID IT! I found a way to put in custom music! Presenting Hoard - Olde Irish Edition! This edition of PSP Hoard, which is the only PSP Hoard mod on the internet as far as I can tell, replaces all music in the modern version of Hoard with public domain Irish folk tunes. Now surely this doesn't sound all that exciting to you, but it is, and let me tell you why. I've found that when comparing Hoard's default music to its graphical setting, i.e. game-play and aesthetics, the chinky techno/new age tunes that came with it do not really mesh correctly with the game-play. For me a game is only good when the music matches the game-play content. Thus I found that old Renaissance and Irish folk tunes fit this game much better, and changed the game to my liking after only two hours of time.
I plan to release in the next week or so, so keep on the lookout for it! As usual, I will only be providing a patch. You will have the responsibility to patch your own copy of PSP Hoard, just like you did with Lemming PSP ACE. I will write up a similar how-to of how to apply the patch when I can.
Here are some screenshots of Hoard in action:

I didn't change anything graphically in this game. I left everything pretty much the same, and only tinkered with the music. Anyway, there's a little teaser for ya lad, and I hope you look forward to my next mod: Hoard - Olde Irish Edition. I should release it sometime this week. AYE DRAGON OUT!
