Hello All! I'm Vyse the determined and I love all forms of gaming. I'll be perfectly honest to you guys. I don't know a thing about ROM hacking (though I know a fair deal about emulators and emulation). I found out about you guys by looking at my site statistics and they say that I was mentioned at this site, though I don't remember speaking to anyone from here. I know a little bit of japanese (Hiragana and Katakana) if that will help any.

My goal is very similar to you guys. I want to create information for all sorts of obscure games for any systems I can get my hands on. Of course, I don't provide full blown translations like you guys (very nice work by the way), but I want to acknowledge the various odd games that don't get much recognition. I noticed that someone was talking about Nekketsu Tairiku Burning Heroes and Koto Battle (KB is an excellent game by the way). If you want, I can mention a number of other odd games. I'll do a little more surfing around the site to see what may or may not be worked on. Forgive me If I make some mistakes, but this site has a vast archive of information so I may overlook something.

Anyway, excellent job guys. If there is any way I can help, don't hesitate to let me know...though I should inform you that I've been very busy as of late working on my own site. Therefore, responses might be a wee bit slow.

No problem pal  ;)

I'm always working on new reviews and I like to grab scans and art illustrations too. I plan on discussing Elemental Master (Sega Genesis/Megadrive), Pocket King (GBC), and Bushi Seiryuuden (SFC/SNES) among other things. Just tweaking site layout a little bit.  :)

You might be interested to know that, some years back, I completed a full translation of Madou Monogatari. It's even cuter than your review would have us believe :) Incidentally, I recommend trying out the Dungeon Druaga game for the GBC. It's fantastically good, which is a real surprise considering that the Druaga series as a whole teeters dangerously towards the, er, "dirty" end of the proverbial stick.

Even cuter you say? I didn't think that was possible!  ;D

I'll try that Druaga game out, though when I make reviews for the site, I usually use the original game just so people don't think the game actually came out in regions it may not have been released. I do know about the Madoh Translation though. I come from the SNES General Board on GameFAQs and we pretty much find anything SNES. Your list of translations is outstanding! I gotta fix my Genesis reviews and then I can add more reviews to the site. All my reviews are supposed to look like the Madoh Monogatari review, but I got lazy and didn't want to change the layout. Better late than never I suppose.

Hi, I'm Joshua.
I've already been here a little while but thought I should introduce myself.

I'm currently helping Tonuchi on his Harvest Moon project.
I'm interested in text hacking/replacement, but I'm always up for new things. :)
I've taught myself a smidgen of Japanese and will be taking some Japanese classes over the next few years at my university.
Sooooooo....I guess that's it for now.

Hmmm.....

Well, been a member for quite awhile >:D, never really got too involved in the romhacking stuff, although I have fiddled with a table here or a graphic hack there. I thoroughly enjoy this community and visit when I some free time to do so.

Was a former animal handler/performer where I worked with reptiles (mainly snakes and alligators) performing shows, then I moved on to work with mammals. I am a huge animal person, but my passion lies in the marine sphere of life. I am currently going to a community college for an AA in Biology, then plan on going to Miami for a BS in Marine Biology. By the way, all you Floridians may have heard of my hometown, Slow-cala :P

I am a very fun person; I try to always see the good in the bad and enjoy others intelect in conversation.
I do know a little written Japanese, however, i'm much more proficient in the spoken language.

My hobbies include exercising,  Scuba Diving (not suprising), and many other outdoor activities.DOES ANYONE ELSE SCUBA DIVE?! I hope to stick around for awhile and crack jokes, make friends, and and enjoy this little community that NC started in hopes that he would take over the U.S. feder....oops too much, gotta stay low key. 8) See ya round ;)

Hello! I'm tc, more commonly known as theclaw or similar names. I started ROM hacking in 2001. Joining Acmlm's Board around that time. Since then, I've attempted hacks of several games. SMW is my first and best project, also the only one currently active.

I'll make it clear that I have very little programming talent. Small bits of BASIC perhaps, though few if any of it's countless variants have become truly widespread in ROM hacking. 'PRINT', 'GOTO', and 'LOAD "*" ,8,1' aren't too useful these days. :P

I picked up a little German long ago, but forgot most of it. Simple lines like "Das ist nicht gut?", I think.

Most info on my hacks isn't all in one place. Dig around the profile links or feel free to ask. :thumbsup:

Hi. I'm InVerse. Many of you already know who I am. If you don't, you're probably better off that way. Anywayz, rumors of my demise were slightly exaggerated. Why the hell does exaggerated have 2 g's in it? That just looks stupid. So yeah... I guess I'm back. Sort of.

PS: I would appreciate it if someone could capitalize the V in my entry in the main site's database the next time boredom strikes.

I'm Rachel. Hi.
I like doing the NES music making thing. I'm trying to learn 6502, but I'm not so great with it. I have an idea for an NES game, but so far all I have is the title screen.
I play lots of video games. (Surprise!)
Other things I like to do? Knitting, sewing, watching cartoons, science... probably some other stuff.
Nice to meet (sorta) you dudes.

Welcome to the Board. We've got quite a few people versed in 6502 and the NES hardware here and plenty more people who know assembly and are skilled in console programming in general from around the globe. Have you been to NesDev?. That's a very good resource for what you're doing.

What type of 'NES music making things' are you referring to? Do you compose at all?

I'm trying to learn some 6502 as well. I'm reading this book called "Programming The 6502." I think someone recommended it to Kitsune Sniper & I just leeched. :P

Anyway, what kind of NES music stuff do you do?

Yeah, I used to lurk on the NesDev forums, but I felt too uncomfortable to post questions. It seems like the responses to most newbie questions posted there are usually something like, "You clearly don't understand the NesDev docs or you wouldn't post a ridiculous question like that! Read blehblehbleh.txt and learn 6502 and come back when you have an intelligible question." No one likes being ridiculed unnecessarily, not even me.
The NES stuff is my first foray into game programming (highly unrecommended by the folks in the NesDev forums, by the way). I've got an excellent book called 6502 Assembly Language Programming and lots and lots of .txt files and demo source codes. I'm at the point where all the source code makes sense and I am able to do create my own very simple demos, but I am still struggling with some ASM fundamentals. Sometimes I see a source code and think, "Why is that being loaded into X? What about A?" I likely am missing some key nuggets of ASM knowledge. I haven't been working with it for too long though, so I'm optimistic that I'll get better as I get more practice.
As for the music questions, I've composed some original music via the MML method. I've also done two covers: Muse - Muscle Museum and Stevie Wonder - I Just Called to Say I Love You. My next MML goal is to create a best of Queen. Yes, I do love me some Queen. And the 2A03 sound seems fitting for some reason. If I do create a decent number of Queen tracks, I'd like to put them on a cart with a little selection screen interface.
So, I hope I have answered your questions satisfactorily and without embarrassing myself too much.

I've done some basic table modding for Diablo II but nothing console related.  Since I've followed the old whirlpool/donut translations site for many years as well as this new great site, I figured I should go ahead and register.  If nothing else, I can thank the fine folks that have done some of these hacks and translations.  Right now, I'm plowing through der langrisser.  Nice to meet all of you.

The one by Rodney Zaks (think I spelled that right)? That's the one I started out with and I can say with some confidence that I learned more from it than any of the text files floating around. :-\

Nope, the author of this book is Judi Fernandez. I like it because each chapter is followed by a summary and a self-test. I picked it up on Amazon for about $10.
I haven't read the Rodney Zaks one, but my local library has it. I may check it out.
