Hello, SMZig here. 

I've toyed with ROM hacking 6 or 7 years ago back when I was around 14, not much long after I had discovered emulation.  Anyway, when I had discovered ROM hacking, it was very intriguing to be able to actually edit aspects of games I used to play as a kid.  Anyway, I learned what I could but never really got good at it.  Was able to do some graphics editing with Nesticle as well as some of the tile editing tools back then.  I wasn't really artistic so all my edits were crappy to say the least.  I pissed off my brother a few time because I'd never make back ups and he'd wind up playing megaman with screwed up graphics LOL. 

My interest grew even more when I discovered text hacking and subsequently with relative searching.  (Before I could only screw around with the text of Link's Awakening because it was the only game I knew of with text stored ASCII).  Anyway, after that I sorta lost interest for the next few years.  I kept up with the translation scene since I was looking forward to some of the releases.  Since then I've graduated high school and now I'm a senior in college as a computer science major.  Recently, my random browsing led me here where I thought I'd try my hand at ROM hacking again.  I'm curious to see what I could learn now that I'm older with a larger attention span as well as much more computing and programming knowledge.

So anyway, the last few weeks I've played around with some stuff.  Read up on some of the assembly docs, played with some of the debuggers and looked around at some of the things that have changed since the last time I ROM hacked.  Really nice place you guys made here.
