Hi everyone, I'm birtles. I've really enjoyed reading about romhacking since I've come across sites like this, and have recently become interested in dabbling in it a little myself.  It's all still very new to me, but I'm slowly picking things up as I read more. My main interest is the NES.

Hey, pleasure to greet you all. I am currently reading through the excellent "Getting Started" section.

I am here with one fairly straightforward goal. I am a gay man who wants to alter some games to include either people like me or gay options. Nothing overly complex or "ambitious" for the most part (I mean no hacking project it simple obviously, but my goal is to the point).

I am actually planning to do a hack of Harvest Moon DS Cute and Harvest Moon DS first (as a sorta dedication to Harvest Moon FoMT/MFoMT True Love Edition) as the creator of that has chosen to skip those two and also because I just plain wanna play Cute and marry the Forget-Me-Not-Valley Guy I wanna marry AS A guy.

Well I have other games I'd like to also do this kinda stuff with, I don't wanna get ahead of myself obviously.

I mean I only understand the very basics and am not even sure what the best tools to use are yet (particuarlly in the cast of exporting and importing new sprites).

Anywho I'm a fast learner so if you don't mind me being such a newbie then I'm sure we'll all get along awesomely.

Hey, everyone.

Joining the board after quite a bit of reading and downloading. Want to learn more so I can start working on some ROM translations. I have a four game worklist so far and I'm currently working on getting the hang of hex editing. Glad to be here  :angel:

It's been a long time since I joined something new on the web aside from social media.

Like many here, my casual curiosity about ROM hacking has moved into a bit of an obsession after seeing a few really fantastic hacks come out.

Especially after reading the developments on one of my favourites, Mega Man X3 Zero Project I realize if you want to do this you can't "dabble" So much as know you'll be spending awhile working on editing and learning to produce anything meaningful.

So you could say I'm both excited and more than a little afraid of what's in store for me to learn.

Aside from all that I am an avid fan of several video games and many transformers properties.

I also write some music and prose. And more recently... really poor comic book drafting as well.

Love shows like Death Note, Breaking Bad, Voltron and of course Stranger Things.

Looking forward to making some new friends.

Want to work on replacing audio in PSone era games, heavy sprite editing for SNES and PSone and maybe some Mugen. Mostly get my feet wet to see what can be done.

Heyo everyone, you might not know me but I'm Roy.

It may not come to your surprise/attention but i was the one that created F-Zero SNES tracks packs using the slightly-reliable FUZEE editor (I say slightly reliable more so due to the fact that some of the tiles that had existed within the original game cannot be found in the editor.)
 (2 of them to be exact, The Revenge and Alt Strike (Which is going over a MAJOR overhaul at the moment.))

My hack was noticed by quite a few actually, notably a small but rather nice F-Zero community.

I myself want to try get into a much bigger spectrum of game creation than just level editing and such, palette swaps, new sprites, decompiling files and being able to read hex code.

Hi, I'm a translator learning how to be a game dev. (And also how to fan-translate games)
I'm working on Thousand Land right now but a focus of mine is going to be SMT NINE as well as most likely other OG Xbox/GCN/PS2/Saturn/NDS/PSP games.

My japanese knowledge is sub-par but I'm learning what I need to for these things.
Hope to do good work; Good to be here.

Good Afternoon all,

80's kid from Austrlia, and MAME-R from along time ago.

Got a 4 player cabinet that I tinker with. Thought this would be a good place to hang

Hello everyone! I'm Mr.Nobody and I'm from Spain.
Recently I uploaded two ps1 translations to this page:

Chaos Break:
https://www.romhacking.net/translations/3301/

Hellnight:
https://www.romhacking.net/translations/3300/

I started doing translations of games as a part of a youtube channel (Spanish):
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIKecQiCyFs9fGBBZ2WEPdg

I'm willing to help other projects with Spanish translations, so fell free to write me.

Greetings!

PS. Love this site!

Heya, pals.
I'm just hoping to provide some love and support for the nice people that take the time to polish my favorite games so I don't have to learn romhacking myself! I'm probably not going to contribute much, since I'm rubbish at pretty much everything and don't have much time on my hands, but I'll give support occasionally~!

Hi, opera.maniac here.

No, I don't like opera (show), but I like opera (browser, but no more), it just stick and can't be helped.

Have curiosity for everything, including modding or translating my favorite game to my native language. It's fun and because my country have no market for video game. Though, I always fall short because I lack of motivation and time, despite my curiosity.

Currently trying to translate FE8 to my native language with available tool. I hope I can finish this one. :)
Beside of that, I try to translate NES games with/without tools for better understanding basic modding and some accomplishment.

I hope I can be active and contribute big for this community. Thanks in advance!

Hi all, i am Kaiovas.
I am 39 years old, from Sardinia, Italy.
I am a retrogamer and an actual gamer, when i am not working, i am a beekeeper.
It's nice to see you all, i came here when i tryed a tool that make possible to switch street of rage 3 characters with sprites from other games (pancake 3).
From now on i'll try to use shadow over mystara sprites in sor 3, and i hope to understand how to change stages
and backgrounds too.
I am not a programmer but i'll try my best.
In future i will try with custom sprites and backgrouds too (my wife is a graphic, she will help me:))
I hope it will be nice to read you all.
Kaiovas :D

Hello, I'm mainly here to improve my hacking skills, I already done some graphical and text hacks before, but I want to do bigger things now.
