Greetings, videonauts. I am FNTM, pronounced "Phantom."
I set up this account in advance of a translation project me and a couple of friends have begun working on.

I love computers. Not just the machines themselves, but also the theory, science and culture surrounding them, from algorithms to informatics and everything in between. I have meditated on the aesthetics of binary information. I have found beauty in the cascading flow of data through the registers of a GPU pipeline. I'm listening to "One Night in Neo Kobe City" as I write this, and I almost cried at the end of Serial Experiments Lain. I read Pilgrim in the Microworld like a bible, and the name "Ryuichi Sakamoto" makes my eyes go wide.

Naturally, I also love videogames of all kinds. My tastes are eclectic, swinging effortlessly between Doom and YU-NO, Takeshi's Challenge and Rondo of Blood, between games as edgy as Sin & Punishment and as adorable as Panel de Pon, games as popular as Super Mario 64 and as obscure as Liz Ryerson's Problem Attic. I am fascinated with the technical wizardry that went into programming old games, and I write about games on a blog in my spare time. I even draw pixel art. I drew my avatar, for instance.

I look forward to getting to know you all, and to what is hopefully the first of many years as part of the ROMhacking community. Best wishes, and wish me luck!

Hey hey, I'm MCoorlim, and I write books, dabble in game design, and occasionally produce podcasts. I've always been a retrogamer, and I've been using the site to find translation hacks to play a lot of the games that didn't come out in the US for one reason or another.

Hacks have always fascinated me, both as a player and as a developer, seeing what kind of new art people make from what's available to them. Remixing is great.

Anyway.

Hey, I'm Lollie! I'm primarily a visual artist, but I do a little bit of everything. Video work, game tinkering, personal mods and hacks.

I'm hugely interested in older games. As far as ROM-hacking goes, I dig translations of Japan-only releases, recolors of monochrome games, remixes and mashups. Disassembly projects are cool as hell, even if I don't have the skill/knowledge to fully understand them. HD Packs are fascinating, and I've tinkered with a live border for Pokemon in the past (built for bizhawk, unfinished & unreleased).

I'm mostly here as a lurker for now, but I'd love to learn how to get more involved with older games.

Wazzup Everyone. I'm Kira S.R. I'm primarily a romhacking hobbyist, and work with some stuff from time to time. if you know me from other places, you may already know that I'm Extremely Lazy... so i tend to postergate stuff like... forever... Super fan of Classic vintage Racing Games and occasional RomHacker here and there...  I've did already some projects in the past, but just now i decided to stop being a lazy man, and actually posting them for the public. (because of course i said i would do it... but forgot to do it XD). Just thought to say hi before going to do the hacking stuff, since there is an introduction topic around here... so... Nice to meet ya all

Made an account so that I can leave positive reviews on translations I've used in the past. I love this site.

First post, hi! I just registered for an account and I know nothing about ROM hacking for now. I want to learn a lot, so if you're reading this on a later date, I might have know more.

I'm here to learn about translating ROMS, I'm starting a non-profit group that translates Japanese Visual Novels that I think is great and I have no clue on how to do it.

I'm mostly active on another site called MangaDex where I translate manga (comics). If that's up your alley, visit me there.

Greetings!  I do mostly hardware projects, but recently found a Capcom CPS1 related project on here (Final Fight 30th hack) and thought I'd join in on the fun :)

Yo, I'm Koba. Or David if you prefer meatspace names.
Oldschool RPG nerd, very jank at Japanese, inexperienced 65c816 programmer (do plan on learning more languages tho).

I'd like to help with patch making somehow or make my own, but for now I'll just stay in the sidelines and cheer people on.

My mother tongue is also Portuguese (European, not Brazilian) so I wouldn't be opposed to making Portuguese patches for text heavy games.

I learned 65c816 from Super Mario World hacking (probably not the best field, but!), and I'm not opposed to reading uncommented ASM code with the help of a debugger if necessary to learn. I'm just not very good at using a debugger.

I recently got an itch to replay CT and while looking around I found this place with all the mods and so far they have been great.

Hey, sup. I'm KaikeKTH, "Kaike" being pronounced as "kaa-ih-k". I'm a rom hacker, and creator of Kaizo Sonic. I'm also working in a Homestuck fancomic, called Homestuck: San Andreas. But i'm not working on it for now, so i can give priority to Kaizo Sonic 2.
My main hobbies is making music and working on my projects. I don't know how to make SMPS though. I may try to learn it, but making SMPS for Sonic 2 can be hard, even with a custom driver.
I don't have anything else to say for now, but i may be active here, depending of my time.
Anyway, if you're still reading this, i hope you have a nice day!

Hello there!  :)

I've been coming to this website a lot in the last years to get hacks and utilities, and decided to enter to try my hand at hacking. I just posted my first hack here (for Super Castlevania IV) and am pleased to have joined.

I am BLAZINOAH. I joined this board because I have two Analogue Super Nt consoles and an Analogue Mega Sg, and I'm looking for interesting hacks to patch my ROMs. I'm particularly keen on finding a patch for Street Fighter II Turbo on the SNES that will allow me to use 10-star Turbo speed setting without having to input a cheat code.
