ROM Hacking Discussion / Re: Pokemon Yellow NES Translation Project

Is that "basic" patch coming along, by the by?
If you're asking about the patch you referenced earlier that's just a translation, producing one should be pretty easy with a byte comparison if lugia2009 hasn't changed the pointers for the text which I don't think he has. The only "tricky part" is to leave the menu graphics alone that are stored similarly as the overworld map graphics. I could do this if lugia2009 can't but it is a tedious process that I don't have the time for at this moment, in a few weeks I do.

Am I seeing things or is this guy selling an NES repro of the game for $50 with a crappy label
Indeed they are. I find it interesting that "NJ###" is on the cart. The original publisher does that for all their games so it could be a repro from Nanjing... maybe.

Spoiler: click to toggle
Try copying the pseudo-HTML next time because you have this and left out the images.

Judging from the original topic, it seems you are being rather ambitious. You have a ways to go to show this project is worth people's effort, sorry.

Probably a stylistic thing. I tried to write some music for Chillyfeez FF4 hack and it became difficult and depressing because I had taken on a project that was unfortunately not close enough to my own personal style. It also didn't help that I was in one of those periods where I was thinking "Do I even want to play music anymore?" and at the time, the answer felt like a "no". I love black metal and baroque, so I guess it goes without saying that my style is better suited for Konami than Square.
Interesting. A lot of Square's music has a classical music influence, Uematsu comes to mind but his style has later matured.

That has indeed been a backburner plan for a long time.  Unfortunately I haven't had much inspiration and talent at developing such a soundtrack to it myself, and the few submissions I have received (almost all by chpexo) haven't quite felt satisfactory enough.

Hopefully someone steps up. Since you don't quite like the music I offered, you could get your hands dirty and try improving it or something. But for now, I'm not really interested in doing new stuff. The Konami style seems rather tough especially for this game since it's arguably one of the best OSTs on the NES.

People are making a killing off making Pokemon Yellow NES repros.  Just FYI: https://instagram.com/p/-E5FNVhyob/?taken-by=nhanphanhippo
He will be selling these boxed repros with a custom manual for $200-300 a piece.  This guy makes repros all the time, (I actually own one of them, his MM Legacy Collection).  He claims he doesn't make them for profit but I find that statement extremely difficult to believe.
That price is a total rip-off. Isn't this the same guy who did the FF7 repros as well? I also signed up on instagram just to comment on that picture.

I heard about this but mostly because there was a guy on imgur spoiling the ending for the game on every image on the front page. :D

I'm impressed you remember after all this time. :P Is that bug in the original game?

Don't know about that. Since when have most users been afraid to offend people via the internet? :D
Baddest hacks come to mind right now. Go on the site and prepare to be offended!

Since I learned about forums, I've noticed that people have trouble communicating socially with each other on them.

This is likely because, at this point in time, most forum goers are probably huge nerds. Facebook has taken the online communication world by storm, and left most forums a little emptier than they once were.

This leaves people who prefer communicating in a forum; i.e., nerds. Now nerds are not people who are known for their great social tact, if you don't mind my saying so. I'm a huge nerd myself; I've seen 80% of all things Star Trek and am aware of the Star Wars Expanded universe. I've done hacks of Final Fantasy II and IV-VI, for goodness' sake, I don't know how much more nerdy a person I could be. I play pop rock because I want to temper my nerdiness, but I digress.

Modify games that run on 20 year and older hardware is pretty nerdy if you ask me.  :laugh: Also I'm glad there are people that we lost from facebook, I prefer not to have the type of atmosphere and people it has.

Why couldn't someone write a guide for forum and debate etiquette? I don't know enough about it to write one, but maybe one of you does?
We've had this conversation many-a-time with you and you'll probably get the same response even if you word it differently.  :P

That wasn't a typo or a misspelling.
Ah, good old European and American spelling differences. Firefox still detects this stuff as typos.

That's easier said, y'know?

Whilst, personally, "not participating in globalisation" is something which I would love for every country to do, it becomes harder and harder as the big companies try to march in and take more land.
Good point. I recall the USA being anti-globalisation at some point. I forget the details of what pushed them over the edge, but it took a good amount of propaganda to sway the American citizens.

Even worse, they kept it secret from the public while it was being written, so it doesn't even take into account the opinions of anyone other than a few select corporations that are being kowtowed to.
This type of thing happens all the time and it's completely on purpose. You can't imagine how hard it is to a) find out the meeting is happening and b) know when and where it is happening and c) to get into the meeting. Welcome to globalization!

You do realise [sic!] that the more people do that the more burden it puts on other countries and the hosts located there, and that that could eventually lead to the teapot boiling.
If a country doesn't participate in globalization and doesn't care about the content, there seems to be no issue here. The worst that can happen is that other countries can block the website if the country refuses to take action. Also can you please elaborate on "eventually lead to the teapot boiling" as I feel it is a rather vague statement.

Sorry, I'm late to the party but whatever. I read this article on wikipedia and it is rather informative:

Should it ever pass. Will this site, and many others all cease to exist? The more I think about it the more depressing it gets because that would mean every translation ever done, and even fan-art is pretty much gone down the drain.
If this website has a threat to be shut downand/or does, I have a few points to make:
  • There's quite a few programs that can download whole entire websites. Of course it is quite rude to do this without permission because this takes up bandwidth so ask first. Everything doesn't have to be lost.
  • This website can find if there are other hosting options out there where the country it is in doesn't care. Being a hidden service is another option.

I modified my original pooy and created a new enemy as well.

I think the new sprite is alright but the gun he's holding looks off. To anyone who can improve the sprite, feel free post it.

While we're talking about datacrystal, I noticed that the wiki doesn't support parser functions: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Extension:ParserFunctions

Having these on there would be great as they introduce much better templates. They also get rid of the hideous {{{1}}} that I see everywhere on wiki, especially if you use #if.

I also get an error every time I try to replace a file.

Just saw your message so I made this

What's a Dragon Warrior parody without a slime enemy?

Also I can't see the image above. For those who are like me, here is a mirror:

@ Tharthan
This is less of a problem if globalisation is done away with.
You should read some of Naomi Klein's books, specifically The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism.

Otocky was a FDS exclusive game, it was never on the SNES by the way.
