Newcomer's Board / Attempting first project: a few questions.
« on: August 11, 2014, 06:15:54 pm »
Hi, I'm new to romhacking. I've taken it up as a way to learn binary and hex coding. My original plan was to level/stat edit the Japan-only release Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem, in order to make units more balanced.
I have:

The translated ROM
Znes emulator

I have read as many guides as I could, but none of them go into the specifics of level editing, most of them mention either a) using hexadecimal code to edit a ROM or b) using/making a level editor.
I am not keen on using a pre-made level editor, as I would prefer to do this from scratch.

What would really help me start out would be:

1) a link to an in-depth guide into level editing
2) some advice on which method of hacking would be best to complete my target
3) any corrections on anything I've got wrong so far, programmes I should install, incorrect use of terminology etc.

thanks for any feedback,
