This is an amazing patching tool!

I was searching for a DOS-compatible BPS patcher and I came across your online development project.. all I can say is a BIG thank you for limited users. I use a Chromebook, so I have been patching NES ROMs using a simple DOS patcher using a DOS emulator within Chrome OS, which is quite a chore to say the least! Your online tool means I can say goodbye to my dinosaur IPS patcher  ;D

I encourage you to continue developing the tool for more formats so that next time, I and others can patch happily away!

Thanks again ZPedro!  :thumbsup:

I have been inspired by all of the amazing hacks I've discovered on this site!

Ever since I stumbled across Outlands, I was hooked on hacks! After, I played old Nintendo games I'd bought used, then I started using an old Mac emulator to play them on my Mac. I loved that I could save my progress and then the craving for more set in!

Then when someone published a hack they were able to work on on a Chromebook, I couldn't believe it! Which lead to my post  :D

I had totally forgotten about ZC, Jorpho!  ;D

I've been messing around with the editors I found, so I can compare ZC to them. I assume its creations output to a ROM or IPS file.

I will see about doing all this on the Chromebook after I do some more research on my old XP PC!

Thanks guys!

Yes, I've used DOSbox to run a DOS-based patcher. Cameyo.com allows you to install Windows apps. It also has an extensive library of freeware and open-source apps already ready to go, which was why I imagined that some of the tools used may already be there, you know?

MY GOAL: to do some (preferably simple) hacking on a Legend of Zelda (LoZ) NES ROM

Ideally, I'd love to use the ***easiest editors*** but if useful I also have 1) an old PC running Windows XP I can remote into and 2) an old Mac running OS X Leopard 10.5.8, and I don't mind using a mix of several tools as long as they aren't made for hard-core rockets scientists, lol! So any suggestions of what to try would be perfect.

I found and I'll try the following Windows Zelda-specific ROM editing tools, so if anyone knows these or others, definitely give me your favs:

Dungeon Master - http://www.romhacking.net/utilities/605/
Zelda 1 Dungeon Editor - http://www.romhacking.net/utilities/292/
Zelda Tech - http://www.romhacking.net/utilities/187/
Zedit - http://www.romhacking.net/utilities/188/



Thanks again for the replies!

LOL, you had me for a second!  :D At ROMhacking.net, I would actually be wrong in asking about ROM hacking? you're too funny, Jorpho!

The Zelda hack I'm playing right now is amazingly well done and I want to know how that was done so I can create my own.. that sounds very fun to me! Isn't that the whole point of ROM hacking or modding, or am I on another planet here?

Plus my main machine right now is a Chromebook. I know, a lot of folks don't see it as a real computer, but I've patched and played plenty of ROMs on with no trouble at all so the next step is modding some games of my own, that's the 'possibilities' I referred to. Do I sound off anybody?

Again, nice try Jorpho, but if I'm out in left field folks, then all I can say is that I'm totally losing it then!

Hi everyone!

I thought I had posted a question; I must have not hit 'post', lol!

Does anyone have any info on hacking roms on a Chromebook? Someone did it using cameyo.com, but they didn't give any specifics.. I've made an account, looked at a zillion apps, but still have no clue on how they did any programming there.

I'm excited because this would open many possibilities for me.. I've never hacked before, so it should be a fun experience.

Hopefully someone knows or has an idea of what tools were used online without the need for a real windows, linux or mac!

Ps. The hack programmed using cameyo was cxszelda. Maybe they installed a hacking tool on the platform? Thanks for any help or input with this! Ck
