He never posted false info, nor did he say you used cheat codes or cheat code devices. What he said was, from what I can see, TECHNICALLY accurate. Your patches do the same thing that Game Genie codes do- they modify the hex code for certain variables in order to give the player a massive advantage.
any data that is edited using a hex editor can have a cheat code created from it.
I modified hex values directly using hex workshop or a visual basic program I code to do the work for me, since I do not use any cheat codes as a basis
for my mods then technically he was incorrect with the assumption. But, that surely is a judgement call on each person to decide isn't it? Any bugfix patches can also be considered in the same category since all they do is modify hex data values too among other hex data only patches. I think its a moot point really since it is clear that most of these aren't just game genie codes hardcoded as a few of you here have already pointed out.
I just got irritated at the accusation that all I did was use a cheat code, especially since I did spend actual time out of my life to locate and edit the data by hand.
Funny thing is, I coded these originally for myself and my mates for those times where we want to breeze through a game to finish it quickly so we can enjoy the story. They have nothing to do with people that cannot beat a game due to lack of skill, how hard the game is perceived or for the people who are lazy. It is purely a convenience sort of thing, especially if one has played and beaten a particular game a few times and doesn't feel like grinding every single time they play it. A prime example is I love Final Fantasy I for the NES with a passion, but, I do not feel like grinding out battles or even spend any time fighting when all I want to do is go through the game itself and enjoy the story and environment. And of course who doesn't appreciate a good monster stomping once and a while.
I do release these to the public in the hopes that others could enjoy them too (and some have), and I didn't expect to get this kind of reaction actually. I could keep these to myself/my mates and or post them on my website only (the likely outcome). Submitting these on ROM hacking sites are just a courtesy for me and others, it won't bother me a bit if all of these EasyType mods are deleted from this or any other ROM hacking site for whatever reason.
Now, my point has been made clear while trying to be as diplomatic as possible within my patience level.
I digress now. Lets move on to more positive things.
