I really don't think they would go after such a simple project. From the way they make their games lately, it seems like they've forgotten that 8-bit games even existed.Final Fantasy on Wii's Virtual Console might like a word with you...
SQUARE-ENIX: "NES games? Who plays (YECCHH) NES games?" (nose pointed up in the air)
Granted, it's just one out a few games they could put up... Oh, there's the Dragon Quest Wii Collection, which has the first three games in both NES and SNES versions on a disc.
If this rom included the parts missing from the game that I addressed earlier then I'd prefer it over the original Playstation version, let alone some half-assed "HD" enhancement.
Well, if it did, it could be in even greater danger, specially when you, yourself, say you'd skip the original
work in favor of the homage/parody.
BTW, here you go.
I owed y'all a link, so here it is. And here
. Honestly, it's all in legal mumbo jumbo. I know it's this site, though, if you can find the exact pinpoint location of the wording.
You could literally get away with it, though, if you claim that this is an educational project, with intent of understanding the inner workings of a piece of code, using the black box* method (meaning, you are not giving the clean code, or any code at all and have to infer its functionality).*Given that you do have limited access to code, it'd probably be more like Gray Box or something; but then again, this code isn't even Square-Soft's, it's the Chinese pirates' (most likely black box written) code
I think I find this more interesting than I should... ._.
