We need to know all of the valid resolutions of the 3DS before we can add it. I assume to start it has the DS resolutions which are '256x384', '384x256', '256x192', '384x128'.

Could the option to ADD CREDITS be included within the Submission Form?
I find it quite odd that we have to add the Credits AFTER the submission has been aproved.
This could help out greatly for the overall submission form.
The system only cares if the screenshot's link ends in a .jpg extension. It doesn't check the resolution.
I don't like the rule that addendum patches can only work on a pre-patched ROM. Why make the end-user jump through hoops to get a game they want to play? As long as proper credit is given, who cares? Has anybody complained? It's ridiculous. Besides, some of the addenda I've made recently don't apply to this rule, because they're intended for different ROMs than the original translation (Famicom Wars, Tales of Phantasia).
And I'm sure there will always be edge cases, but I think a distinction should be made between "a hack of a game translation" and "a hack of a game that happens to be translated".
Really, if we take this rule through its natural course, any ROM hack of a translated game, ever, would be considered a "translation". Are we never going to have any FF5 hacks, unless they can be applied to the Japanese ROM? I'm really not sure why this rule change was made in the first place.
I don't know why every entry doesn't have a list of addendum hacks below it (if applicable), making it really easy to tell what's out there. As it is, people don't know about these addenda unless they're specifically looking for them. Plus, on each addendum page, you could have a big section that reads "Requires [such and such hack]" that links back to the original.
Why couldn't you just let them all be on the site?
It was never anyone's intention to encourage you to remove as many hacks as possible, this was about illustrating an unreasonable rule that was not being enforced fairly.
That. I dont want anyone to get the wrong idea here. I was not intending for removal, i was trying to make a point for reinstatement.
Remember Zophars Domains hack section? All those hacks that were never completed and just were teasers.
also there are several .01% complete translation patches from the 90s archived here -- including some of my own. it's kind of a different argument but IN GENERAL shows how arbitrary "complete" and "compliant" are.
The guidelines are, in all seriousness, a little vague, but seem to be geared towards discouraging the submission of low-value and/or incomplete ROM hacks. They can unfortunately be a little subjective, and the definition of "complete" can vary widely across different types of hacks, as well. The hack of mine you reported for noncompliance, for example, cannot get much more complete than it already is; the purpose of the hack is to correct text errors in the NES version of the game based on the text of the versions from which it was derived, and there are not many of these. (I actually have found a few more since submitting it, and will at some point update it once I'm confident I've caught everything; however, I have very limited time for ROM editing these days.) Some of the FF6 bugfix hacks we have on the site literally change exactly one byte in the ROM, but this does not make them incomplete hacks; they accomplish exactly what they are designed to do, without any feature creep.
If the removal of my hack was in "good faith" so are these submissions. these hacks, the ones i and others listed (out of nowhere honestly, i know at least one of those guys i CERTAINLY didnt expect to be agreeing here) are not "in compliance". They are even less that the work i did that was removed. A precedent was set, for the amount of work required and those hacks do not meet that level of work. Replacing five instances of a pronoun, or swapping a palette, I am fully willing to take my lump. My hack was not "in compliance". Thats fine. All i'm asking for, in the "noncompliance" submissions, is that everyone else be held to the same standard i am being held to on this site.
Looks like Chrome's having a hard time finding one of the CSS files for the theme. Here's a screenshot of Chrome's debugger. I can confirm that the 404 on webkit.css shows up on pretty much every forum page.
I think it might have something to do with the fact the ZIP file contains not only IPS patches, but a C executable file and matching C source code file...
I don't know what's up with the one on this site tho. The contents might be the same for both here & that link
The best would be an assembler that support something like this:Code: [Select]
!BK = $F30000
$off = !BK + $0100
BK = $F30000
off = BK + $0100
lda BK,x ;This will be lda $F30100,x
I somewhat agree with you, but here is a counter question. As someone who probably has to work from morning to evening (nowadays sometimes more), for how many hobbies do you even have time? There are more and more people in this age who between work and maybe raising their kids really don't have time to engage in any hobbies anymore. Even having just one hobby seems like a luxury to me.
So while it would be awesome to game, do two different sports, go traveling, play an instrument, romhack and read high literature and go to the theater, who the hell has time for all of that? Realistically, it's pick one or maybe two if you are lucky.
Of course it's a different story if we are talking teenagers who have half the day any day and do nothing but game. But hey, they are teenagers, they do pointless stuff by default. I nowadays wonder what the hell I did with all my time back in the day.
However, from my understanding, a lot of (but not all) of the eShop levels were already technically in the game's memory, and a card needed to be scanned in order to access that content.
Well in the case of the original SMA4 game, the extra content was already in the ROM, you just needed to unlock it.
Personally I think a patch should not include any data not made by its author.
To merge data from multiple games, the patch should require memory dumps of all the games as the input/target file of the patch, not just one of them. This way these patches could be shared without an issue.
I don't knjow any other websites to host files to upload hacks to this site tho.
