Revised RHDN Policy

30 September 2008 7:11AM EST - Update by Nightcrawler

Site News

This is an announcement regarding a policy change I thought was important enough to warrant a news item on. On the disclaimer at the bottom of this page you will now find revised wording concerning our previously long standing removal/deletion policy.

Our previous policy allowed unconditional removal of files, and in many cases entries, at the request of an author of any material on our site. One of the primary missions of Romhacking.net is the preservation of the files and information circulating in the hacking community. However, we have to balance this mission with the wishes of the authors. Our previous unconditional policy was starting to significantly conflict with goals of the site pertaining to archiving and preservation of data.

In the past several months our unconditional policy has been abused. Staff members became upset with requests resulting in:

  • Spending time fixing up and processing an author’s entry only to have them ask it be removed days later.
  • Getting mass deletion requests for all material belonging to an author with no reason or weak reason given.
  • Getting random deletion requests for material on the site for years with reasons cited as “don’t feel like having it hosted here anymore”.
  • Unfair deletion of other related material submitted by others such as reviews, descriptions etc.

These types of requests became more frequent resulting in additional wasted time and effort by staff and unfair consequence of removal of information from others. Furthermore, removal of project information is a detriment to the community. Removal of such information and project acknowledgment only hurts the community as a whole.

In meeting both the interest of staff duties (ultimately staff should only be screeners here) and best interest of the community, staff has agreed to change the policy to no longer be unconditional.

We feel we have come up with a reasonable policy that is fair to site, authors, and community. The new policy:

In the event a third party, in good faith, submitted your work without consent, you may request deletion via the Contact Staff Form. First party submissions imply permission to archive said work permanently and deletion requests without critical reasoning will be denied. The term ‘deletion’ guarantees file removal only. Entry information is considered RHDN public content and not included in removal.

In summary, we still respect unconditional deletion requests on material submitted to our site in good faith by third parties that an author may not have wished to appear here. However first party submissions by the author themselves will not be allowed to be deleted without very strong reasoning such as critical bug/s or something that will generally result in negative consequence by being available to the community.

Also of note is the fact that deletions only include files and do not include entry information or related RHDN public information in interest of data preservation, preventing redundancy, and best community service.

Feel free to discuss the new policy in the topic created by this post.

M.I.J.E.T. Presents an Enhancement Patch for Contra: Hard Corps

29 September 2008 2:49PM EST - Update by Pennywise

ROM Hacks News

It’s a hack, not a retranslation, although the script has been cleaned up. Lots of minor tweaks and things to make this my ideal version of the far superior USA release. There may even be some undocumented stuff I added…

  • Copyright screen edited slightly.
  • Copyright screen can now be skipped by pressing the start button.
  • Minor rewording in options menus.
  • Maximum number of lives in options menu increased to 5 (default is still 3).
  • Got rid of the annoying “press start to exit” feature in some menus.
  • Start button can now be used to confirm some options.
  • Start button can now be used to select your character.
  • Mission briefings can now be skipped by pressing the start button.
  • You can now hold buttons B & C to skip through text faster.
  • In-game font fixed such that lower-case characters are now usable.
  • Added an alternate font (activated with a code).
  • Added ‘e accent aigu’ for ‘coup d’état’.
  • Script corrected, edited, and optimized.
  • Soft reset added.

Hajime no Ippo GBA Complete English Translation Patch

23 September 2008 5:54PM EST - Update by Markliujy

Translations News

My first actual ROM hacking project is complete!

Hajime no Ippo for the GBA is a Boxing game similar to Punch-Out, but with Hajime no Ippo characters and special moves. It also has a nifty customization mode to prolong replay value a little bit more.

The game should be completely translated and error free, but as this is my first actual project, please take that into consideration.

Exile on MSX in English

28 September 2008 6:37PM EST - Update by Szcz

Translations News

XZR2 for the MSX, already available in English on the Megadrive and Turbo Duo under the name Exile, has been translated by Django of the MSX community. This is the second in a trilogy of RPGs, with the first, XZR, appearing only on the MSX, the sequel XZR2 appearing on the MSX, Megadrive and Turbo Duo, and the third, Exile: Wicked Phenomenon (XZR: Janen no Jishou) appearing only on the Turbo Duo. The latter two were translated by Working Designs, though with some alterations (changing the names of Gods to avoid offending real-world religions) and removal of some drug references, meaning this should enable fans to experience it in a form truer to the original - albeit with cut-down graphics. Let’s hope they’re working on the original XZR, since as yet no translation exists, it’s great fun to play, and it sets the scene for latter games.

Innocent Sin beta testing

09 September 2008 12:55PM EST - Update by Gemini

Translations News

Two years have passed and we are finally there! The Persona 2: Innocent Sin translation is complete and ready for a deep and accurate beta testing.

A brief list of this translation’s features:

  • All dialogues 100% translated and edited. Beta testing will take care of the remaining issues;
  • There are still none coded, but the public build will come with a custom patching program, similar to Tales of Phantasia;
  • Runs fine on real hardware and emulators. The patch also removes all lag on Ps2 caused by frequent framebuffer access;
  • Some of the most absurd code rewrites ever. :p

The translation will be released on 15 October 2008. Don’t miss it!

New translation patch for Langrisser II MD by M.I.J.E.T.

18 August 2008 1:02PM EST - Update by DCEvoCE

Translations News

This is a translation patch for the Mega Drive game Langrisser II. It is the sequel to Langrisser (known as Warsong in the USA) by Masaya. As usual, it is a “dual-language” patch, meaning that it is capable of displaying the original Japanese script in addition to the English translation, depending on the country code of your machine.

It is loosely based on the older Hiryuu Honyaku / Warui Toransu translation. A few improvements to their original work were made by D et al. before he passed it off to M.I.J.E.T. Aside from the script and a few graphics, almost nothing was taken from the old release. The hacking was completely redone from scratch and is far superior. The script was almost entirely rewritten, edited, and type-set, with quite a bit of it retranslated. If you shied away from the older release, you may find that this version meets your standards.

Language warning! It’s fairly mild, there’s just a lot of it.

Please post feedback here: http://mijet.eludevisibility.org/forum.html

Staff - You can get the patch here from our archive.
