Title: Gamers beware! We are the door to hell!

It has been confirmed by researchers! Romhacking opens the door to drugs, bank robbery, genocide... (http://www.cnbc.com/2017/04/21/how-free-hacking-tools-on-the-web-could-be-leading-kids-into-cybercrime.html) This will end the longtime debate over the gray area. :)

That's why I haven't worked on the hack I started in such a long time. Every time I'd try to get back into it, I'd find myself getting sidetracked by hacking the Pentagon and giving meth to babies...

6. Does your son use Quake?

Quake is an online virtual reality used by hackers. It is a popular meeting place and training ground, where they discuss hacking and train in the use of various firearms. Many hackers develop anti-social tendencies due to the use of this virtual world, and it may cause erratic behaviour at home and at school.

If your son is using Quake, you should make hime understand that this is not acceptable to you. You should ensure all the firearms in your house are carefully locked away, and have trigger locks installed. You should also bring your concerns to the attention of his school.

Jesus fucking christ  :laugh:

Gameshark codes are the work of the devil.

Of course. It should be obvious to every normal well-adjusted person that being addicted to something named after such a dangerous animal is a sign of sociopath tendencies. In terminal stages of OTAKU-GameShark syndrome addiction, the subject even tends to irresistibly stab random people on the streets with swordfish sharks. Here is a pic from a Chinese game which contains subliminal messages to force subjects to that stage (thats the hidden meaning behind the word "stage").

I'm going to be honest, I read the entire article and I have to say that this is a ******* waste of my time and it really gives us romhackers (and gamers in general) a bad image!

Just because we hack/mod games, we're automatically criminals. This is blasphemy.

Sorry for the rant, but it really pissed me off.

It's the same logic as "they played Doom, so that's why they shot up the school", even though there was more to that (which is an entirely different discussion altogether).

Who's itching to see ROM hackers being demonized on Dr. Phil and Oprah? We're all gonna be labeled as bad boys, and thus get more pussy than Animal Control rounding up feral cats at a crazy old lady's house.

If your son has requested a new "processor" from a company called "AMD", this is genuine cause for alarm. AMD is a third-world based company who make inferior, "knock-off" copies of American processor chips.
Okay... I guess Intel had a proper propaganda machine running here  :laugh:
(By the way, AMD *is* an American/Californian company, making this even funnier)

I have a nephew, who loves a particular Video Game, and when ever he is at my house I let him play it, but if he knew you could edit the game he probably would take off with it and make custom versions the kid is likely smarter than me, and he has a smart phone.

So I could even put the game on his smart phone, but I've considered the dangers which would be the minute he went to school showed his friends they all started playing it on their phones, and guess who the police and everyone's parents are going come after for introducing their kid's to Emulation and illegal Roms. No Thanks.   

For something "RomHacking" that is not even illegal enough to be noticed by the FBI or CIA because it is not criminal.

Now if it was my own Kid I would teach him to keep it secret, and he would be like a Hacking Prodigy.
Nobody in real life knows who I am or that I hack Video Games. I trust no one. lol

Emulation and ROMs gets the filth and an angry mob of parents to come kick down your door?

I guess my corrupter of innocence joke at the start was actually accurate. Worst that ever happens to me is I get "I don't like old consoles like the PS1".

I don't really give a shit about distributing roms/hacks to people I know,
Firstly I was introduced when back in high school a good (and very weird) friend introduced me to the scene, by giving me ZSNES, Earthbound, and Star Ocean, from there I inevitably discovered certain sites, and then started patrolling Aeon Genesis for translations and news, which is kind of the reason I'm here? Was kind of a big Gideon Zhi fanboy back then.

Secondly, the cops here are LAZY AF, they seriously barely even come around here for actual problems, unless the local drunk lights the woods aflame or something (No joke, he did once, they didn't bother to show when he reported me for illegal fireworks on 4th of July ;))
they're definitely not going to come out here to stop me practicing black magic unless there's some unprecedented witch hunt sparked by the media, and in that case I'd be forewarned and know to get the hell out of dodge.

that probably would not happen, most parents probably already know about emulation, and may not even care.

Heck they sell Modded Wii's and Nes Classic's on Ebay, so I probably have nothing to fear.

I look for the interested not the uninterested I don't like to influence people, who have not already been corrupted.
What I mean is if a kid or anyone asked me about it I wouldn't hesitate to point them in the right direction, but I just don't go around telling people about it.

I once showed a guy how to make custom Game Genie Codes and he had one for his Nes, but I had forgotten to tell him not to use costume codes on the real thing but he did, and he keep calling me when he encounter ones that he couldn't turn off an screwed his games up had to change my phone number and leave town. lol

I'm tired of games being made a scapegoat for everything. Metal music used to be blamed for violence, and then rap. I've been emulating games for awhile and it doesn't lead to anything bad. Actually, emulating helped me in my computers class in college. Anyway, these "articles" are bullshit that cater to the fears of people that don't know better. It's sad that there are people that think that this is true.
