Hi, im new to the hacking community, and I'm currently learning the programming language, I've got a pretty good grasp on famitracker, and currently going throught tutorials, but, to get to the point, I would love to get a team together to start creating original Nes, snes, and genesis games, I have a couple ideas for games, and one main project idea for an original NES game, if anyone is interested, hit me up on this post

This might not be a ROM hack, but this snippet from The Definitive Guide to ROM Hacking for Complete Beginners still applies:

Quote
1102: How can I start a ROM hacking group?

 One of the biggest neophyte mistakes is to attempt to start a new
 ROM hacking group to accomplish some project you've thought up. First
 of all, no experienced ROM hacker is going to join a group founded
 by someone who's never released a ROM hack. Secondly, unless you plan
 to do a significant portion of the work (and no, managing a team does
 not count) then most ROM hackers will avoid your attempt to start a
 group because it looks like you're wanting to take credit for their
 hard work. If you really want to start a ROM hacking group, then show
 some progress on a project of your own and then solicit people to
 help you with it. It's generally easier to find an existing group and
 offer your services to them, however.
This signature is an illusion and is a trap devised by Satan. Go ahead dauntlessly! Make rapid progres!

I am really interested in creating a nes game, specially a 4-Player one (like kunio nekketsu series) but It is obvious that no one can do such a job alone, we have to work together.
