Hello,
I'm Nabal and I've always liked the concept of romhacking. I hope to makes some romhacks myself one day, if I ever get enough free time. I'm currently studying computer science (which is the reason for my lack of free time) and my top 3 favorites games are Super metroid, starfox64 and cave story.
Have a great day everyone.

Hi everyone !

I play videogames since I was 4 years old (got my first gameboy during a trip to the U.S.A. with my school). Now I'm 35 and I always try to understand how games works :)

I reverse ROM's for fun, and build "tools" to help me finish some games (and also learn a little bit of ASM :) I've spent a lot of nights on CTF/Hacking Challenges on reversing some cryptic binaries, so reversing ROM's is quite easy ^^ Right now I'm working on two projects :

- A password generator for "Otto's Ottifanten" a GameBoy Game (Almost finished)
- A save editor for "Monster Rancher Explorer" (GameBoy Color)

And when I play retro-games on emulator I make Action Replay Cheats. I didn't find any Action Replay cheat collection online, so maybe one of my future project will be to made one :)

I hope that here I could be useful to someone (and to find some infos on how saving/loading works on a GameBoy/Game BoyColor/Game BoyAdvance)

hi everyone,
i registered to this place time ago, but i hadn't contributed till today, when i published my first homebrew game for Sega Genesis here :)
it is a very simple game, but i am proud of it. the goal was to begin to learn how to work with SGDK.
this is the first, but i wish it won't be the last  :crazy:

Male/20

I'm a '00s kid who has a soft spot for retro gaming, mainly the 16-bit era. The first 2 games I've ever played were Super Mario World and Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts, still 2 of my all-time favorites to this day. I began hacking as a way to practice game design, with Super Mario World. But I lost motivation for a while due to idea block, but now I'm back. I'd like to expand upon hacking with some of my other favorite games like Mega Man 6, Sonic 3, Diddy's Kong Quest and Super Mario Bros. 3

Just because here are my favorites.
Series: Mario, Mega Man, Sonic, Castlevania, Metroid and Kirby
Systems: SNES, Genesis, NES, Wii, PS1, N64 and Switch
Game: Donkey Kong Country 3 (Too many to list so I'm just listing my #1)

I am SRPFC.
I've just entered the world of ROM hacking and I'm mostly aiming at doing translations.

Hello! The name is "purplizedMeshiah".
I like retro stuff NES mostly, having fun with pascal (although not that GOOD at it), learning stuff about translating NES games, famitracker in total and of course discovering very n0ice hacks at romhackingDOTnet.

Good day, reader.

I have a signature, lmao.

Hello all!
I'm Somari, thought I'd join as I'm working on a little project at the moment which I thought might be worth sharing, so I'll post about that soon. As you might be able to tell by the name, I like NES bootlegs a fair bit, especially ones by Hummer Team, my favourites being Super Mario World and Donkey Kong Country 4. As for hobbies, I'm a cassette tape enthusiast, casual gamer and enjoy tinkering with old electronics such as Walkmans and VCRs. I also like NES-ifying graphics from time to time and am slowly learning to cover music in Famitracker by ear, so maybe that will be useful for hacking someday. My favourite types of games are arcade style racers, vertical shooters and side scrollers/platformers. As for consoles, I quite like the NES/Famicom, Mega Drive and PS2.
Anyway, it's nice to finally join and I'll see you all in a bit

I'm DSpeed, entered this hacking thing like past year, noodling around with Esrael Sonic Editor 2. Not much of a programmer (although I did have a course in C# and PHP), but trying my best with what I have.
First game I ever played was Resident Evil 2 (great start, i know), but the same day I played Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3, and along with Sonic Riders a few years later, sparked my love for older games.
So... I'm a fan of Sonic, Pokémon, THPS, Crash and Megaman.
Think that's it.
Thanks.

Oi, people call me Elvie. I downloaded the YY-CHR graphics editor last year and passively used it. It has only been the last month that I started to get a grasp of it and dedicate myself to a particular project.

I would like to do more meaningful modifications through programming sometime in the future, but, for now, I will be making some serious visual upgrades and silly parody hacks.

Hi there everyone,

I call myself Poe however it's just an alias. My mother tongue is German. I would describe myself as a kind and ambitious person. I grew up with Nintendo in the early 90's and still I enjoy spending my freetime playing some favourite games. I'm especially into role playing games. About one year ago I got the chance to join a group doing rom hacking and translations in Germany. Since I'm not very familiar with rom hacking yet, I concentrate on translations from English to German and conversely. I'm always looking for new challenges. However when the current project is finished I can imagine to do my first steps in rom hacking though I know it might be a long and hard way. But before then I still do what I can do best - translations. I wanna dive deeper into the rom hacking scene and offer my translation skills if it's needed. So, in case any help or support is needed I look forward hearing from you.

Kind regards, Poe.

Hello. My name is Edinei Lopes. I am Brazilian, I like arts, communication and games. I want to learn more about hacking old ROMs. I signed up on the site to follow the news and also share the hacks I complete. The first was about Alladin's colors from Sega Genesis.

While I know how to hack asm-wise, I haven't shared any of my work. Usually small bugfixes but I'm not capable of writing bigger projects like the highly-rated stuff on this site. Tried doing translating work before but that never worked in my favor. Also tried doing graphics editing but nothing worth sharing with anyone else.

Salutations. I'm the man on the boat, and I'm making a Super Mario World hack called Ganymede. I'm not really a hacker, strictly speaking, I'm an artist/writer/designer, and Ganymede is a passion project I've spent thousands of hours making since 2013.

Hello,

   I am new to the modding/hacking scene. I have enjoyed video games for most of my life 41 years on this planet of ours. I mostly am a hardware
person. fixing old systems, replacing blown components, installing new power supply's or even new a/v outs on a variety of systems. I am hoping
to find some help here in making some hacks for a few of my favorite games. The first one is to add all the wrestlers to WWF Raw. there were three
great WWF wrestling games on the SNES and Sega. but the rosters were always changing. I hope to be able to make a complete version with all the
wrestlers. Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi everyone,
I've been a lurker here for some time, and have finally decided to put my foot in the door. I probably won't contribute much, I don't have the technical expertise, but I'll express my gratitude and offer support where I can.
cheers,

-AC

Hi everyone!

I've been playing video games pretty much my entire life, 36 years long. I'm a big fan of JRPGs. I was introduced to this place by ChickenKnife, with the Delocalized DQ projects. I'm kinda new to all of this hacking 'n patching universe. I might end up asking questions here and there, who know :)
