What about f and ph. Why does ph have to exist?! It sounds EXACTLY like f. There is literally NO difference.

Totally agree with this. But the thing is, no one really has the time to learn programming just for this reason. Hopefully if i get good enough, I can start developing more advanced tools myself.

Literally took me 3 secs to find megaman's tiles in Tile Layer Pro. If you open it in Tile Layer Pro and go to Edit -> Goto -> 2C000 (The offset) The tiles should be in the top row.

Yup you are right. That is why i thought i would make it in HTML and categorize them (e.g graphics compressed or text compressed) and the the user will be able to search for the game. And with some simple javascript, it would tell the user under which categories it falls under.

ROM Hacking Discussion / Making a list of compressed games?
« on: April 22, 2016, 02:46:58 pm »
I'm not sure if this is already a thing, but i think it will be a good idea to create a document which lists all the games which are compressed on the NES, so people who don't know how to decompress can benefit by not wasting time on starting projects on compressed games. So how about we start naming compressed games for the NES and create a document? And if it goes well, we can make a list on other consoles.

About that tile-editor. Why can't the drawing field consist of four tiles (2x2)? That way you wouldn't have to guess where pixels meet at the borders.
Also how about an ad hoc preview animation? There were the three congruent frames of the running animation, so it shouldn't be hard for the program to build a preview animation from that; having to play the rom for an actual examination is asking too much.

Rom-hacking has existed for +20 years, how can this be so impractical? Is this really as good as it gets?
Yup, this is as good as it gets. Not a lot of ROM Hackers are experienced programmers, and the "real professionals" don't have time for ROM hacking anymore(life etc). I do believe it can get better, but it seems like there are no programmers interested in making better tools.

How about HTML Documents? layout's can be much better than TXT, and you can add images, and even javascript programs that could ask the user questions and the user will need to answer.

I actually started writing SUPER easy to follow and understand guides. Not giving away any secrets until the first one is released :p Hopefully this will help new hackers learn ROM hacking easier.

5-8 hours a day... I should get a life xD
