Scrubby OSX Sprite Viewer / Editor
26 February 2008 8:56AM EST - Update by Matthew Callis
Scrubby is a tool to (eventually) edit sprites and other data in ROM files for OSX. There’s wasn’t an all purpose tool for this for OSX and I missed YY-CHR so I started Scrubby. Scrubby currently supports the following ROM image types:
- Nintendo / Famicom Disk System (2BPP)
- Super Nintendo (3BPP, 4BPP, 8BPP*)
- Game Boy (2BPP)
Right now all you can really do is view sprite data and save it, but I am finishing up editing the data. So far:
- Display ROM sprite data
- Save sprite data (PNG)
- Edit Sprite Data
- Import Edited PNG File
- Add other image formats
Staff Note - You can also find this archived here, currently categorized as a graphics viewer so as not to confuse the kids.

EFF's Patent Busters Take Aim at Nintendo's Handheld Emulation Patent
25 February 2008 8:56AM EST - Update by Karatorian
As part of it’s ongoing Patent Busting program targeting bogus patents, the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), a leading organization “defending free speech, privacy, innovation, and consumer rights”, has included a patent held by Nintendo that covers the emulation of handheld gaming devices in it’s Top Ten Most Wanted list.
The patent is clearly aimed at restricting the development of emulators and related tools for handheld consoles, of which Nintendo’s Gameboy brand has the majority market share. This patent could have dire implications for the ROM hacking community as such software is of vital importance to the hacking of titles on these systems.
The EFF is seeking community contributions of prior art from before the May 27, 1999 filing date of the patent. Anyone with information regarding handheld emulation prior to this date can submit it to the EFF using a form at their website.
The EFF has been successful in overturning other bogus patents and is in the process of legal proceedings aimed at overturning more.

Utawarerumono Translation Released
11 February 2008 10:10AM EST - Update by KaioShin
mirror moon and Soylations released a complete English translation of the SRPG/Visual Novel Utawarerumono. Here is the original release notice:
Utawarerumono translation patch has been released!
While I consider this an open beta release because it did not undergo the same level of internal proofing as our other releases, please play and enjoy it to the fullest!
The release is currently compatible with the PC DVD version.
There was already an update to patch 1.1, which fixes some small errors caused by an old line inserter.
Staff Note: We can’t host the patch here on RHDN, if you’d like to play the game, head over to the mirror moon website. They also list sources where you can buy the game from.

Emerald Dragon now playable in English
03 February 2008 10:24AM EST - Update by KingMike
After five years of work, Nightcrawler has released his English translation patch for the SFC/SNES version of Emerald Dragon.
With this release, Nightcrawler has released a patching program for Windows, designed for beginners to translation patches. (Advanced users may still apply the IPS with their program of choice.) He’d really like it if you read the readme, too.
Nightcrawler will be taking a bit of break before he returns to finish up Heracles 4, Tenshi no Uta (SNES) and any secrets he’s working on.
