What are some of the wackiest, most extreme videogame mods you know of, for games *without* official modding toolkits?


@impiaaa In 1980 (or thereabouts) I hacked the version of "Space Invaders" that came with the TRS-80 to increase the number of digits in the score display, and then interfaced to hardware that I built to dispense a piece of candy when you beat the high score.

Does that count?

@impiaaa I was fairly pleased with myself. I'd taught myself Z80, smashed the stack to get access to the machine code, and wrote my own monitor/interpreter. Documentation was scarce, so it was an interesting exercise.
