Hello Everyone :)

I'm Pat, a 30 year old frenchman who's been growing up with several systems through the years :

-The original gray PS1 which I got for christmas in 1998 with Gran Turismo
-A purple GameBoy Color in 1999 with the marvelous Legend of Zelda: Link's awakening DX
-The original GBA in 2001 with Pokémon Cristal (couldn't afford a GBA game after spending it all on the GBA and pokemon '^^)
-A used Pikachu N64 from a friend in 2003 with Super Mario 64 and Pokemon Snap, been collecting a fair share of games on it afterwards and am currently waiting for my everdrive x7 \o/
-The first PSP in 2007 with Burnout Legends, I remember being impressed by the powerhouse it was back then, and with so many abilities for emulation and media playing... I still use that system a lot!
-A slim PS3 in 2010 for GT5 originally, but bought about 40 games on it since! XD


I still have got all my systems and games from all these years, and despite its obvious drawbacks (cartridge limitations, ridiculous drawing distances, trident controller with a crappy joystick...), the N64 has never left my living room, and I regularly come back to it for an old school playing session, alone or with friends. It really isn't pretty by today's standards, and sometimes the gameplay mechanics feel antique, but I still like it... Nostalgia you say? Maybe, after all I'm 30 now, I'm entitled to that ^^

I'm also passionate about 90's and early 2000's sports cars, and I really enjoy cooking and eating good food :P

Can't wait to chat N64 romhacking with all of you guys, right now I really am into OoT MQ and Top Gear Rally ^^
Cheers!

Hi! My handle is inkskratch, and I've been into games since the 80's. I stumbled into this scene like a week ago, and I'm pretty fascinated by all of it! I'm a retro gamer, but mostly because I just haven't had much time lately to get into new games and systems. Anyways, glad to meet all of you!

Sup. ;) Just a lone wolf passing through here. I've been a gamer since the '80s. Played Atari at the age of 3. Played nearly half of the NES, SNES, Gameboy, and N64 games growing up. Huge Nintendo fan here. Although I know nothing about rom hacking, I'm willing to learn and help where I can. I've always wanted to fix what Nintendo had to do to Zelda OOT 3DS. I would love to somehow revert it back to the original Zelda OOT 1.0 content from the N64 that they had to censor for some valid reasons, but still. It would be cool to revert it. ;) If you know what I'm talking about and are interested in giving this a shot, hit me up.

I have lurked on this site off and on for a number of years. It has been a valuable resource for my acquired taste for obscure, and not so obscure, JRPGs and various other kinds of games, that either never got localized for my country, or were utterly butchered to appease moral busybodies, and/or copyright lawyers.


My family had fallen on hard times when I was growing up, so most of my gaming experience came from hand-me-downs from my older sister, and my dad.

We had a Game Boy Advance, a SNES and an N64.  My dad had a Sega Genesis, and an old windows 98 gaming computer that he had built himself back in the day.

I didn't really get my own computer or unrestricted access to the internet until my 13th birthday (2012), this was one of the first places I visited, I liked seeing what you guys could make the old Mario games I grew up on do, and I still check out the Mario Game hacking sections from time to time, to see what's new. But what really got me hooked, was when I found out how Final fantasy, and a lot of the other games I played were censored for western markets, and that eventually led me down the rabbit hole of the games that didn't make it here at all.

My primary interest is in gaming, but I also like literature, classic film and animation, old cars, and history.

I am hoping to eventually contribute my own hacks and translations to the community, when I learn a bit more about programming.

Hello, I came to the forum as I've been a long time PS1 hacker/modder.
I made a lot of unique codes and rom hacks for Final Fantasy VIII, Resident Evil 3, Spyro 1 2 and 3 and many more games.

I'm pretty well known within the gamehacking.org community as "Unicorngoulash" aka Spyro master

Today I uploaded a Final Fantasy VIII NTSC-U PS1 mod to the site that enables Odin and Gilgamesh as if they were normal GF's with picture and all. I hope it gets approved.

Hello everyone,

i'm Adrien, i came from france, i've played a lot in the past (especially nes,snes, n64,ps3/4,wii,switch)
i still play a few, but my new hobby is reversing some stuff (witch take soo much time...)

i'm often in game festival for animate stand and try to make people discover unknown games but fun to play.
i've also managed the super mario kart championship (the snes version) for few years with a lot of fun  :) (from around 2014 to 2018)

I've discovered this site since many years now, generally searching for documentation and software for modifying games.

i work since 2-3 years on reversing Pokemon Puzzle league (on N64), because it has a really weird pokemon sounds (and yes just for that  ;D)

i work on a software for modifying the game (texture, audio, videos, scenes..) it's still a work in progress (shared on github) and maybe share it on the romhacking site when it will be more finished :)
i also have the objective to make a multi version on pokemon puzzle league (manage to have the "worst pokemon screaming audio" from the french, english and german version. (it's almost finished)

maybe finding some people who work on this game, or just share some informations on the forum and discover a lot of other things ;)

See ya' ;)

Hi Everyone,

I've been online as BassForever since 2003. I've been a big fan of rom hacks and fan translations since I discovered the idea over 10 years ago. I can't hack or program to save my life, but I've learned a lot to apply some of the really cool patches I've seen over the years. I decided to register to be able to leave feed back on the hacks I've played.

Heya!

I'm Topaz Light. I've had a big interest in games since I was a kid, and it's been really fun lately learning how to make my own modifications to them. There's still a LOT I don't yet know how to do, and I'm not sure how much I'm interested in making this my Main Thing, but it's a fun side thing to pick up and play around with, for sure!

Not exactly sure how much I'll be around, but I do have some hacks I've made for my own private use that I may share here at some point when I get the files put together in a presentable-enough way.

I joined because I love romhacking and want to be part of history hopefully making SEGAGAGA a fully translated (and licensed product) for people to play not only on the Dreamcast, but PS4 / PS5, NS, XBox and Steam.

We'll see how that goes.

So, i am finally here now,too

27 years old, love making synthwave music, located in germany.
like ten years ago i already came in contact with romhacking, for GBA games with classics editors like advance maps etc, which were lots of fun to me.
today, seeing me only playing older games from snes to psp, always looking for a little more into jrpgs, but also enjoying racing games.

glad to be here in this community! :-)

Part time lurker here.

I've been playing games for as long as I can remember, have been part of the PMDT as an odd-jobber, and have been playing way too much Dokapon Kingdom. That series go very far and there's quite a I want to play the other Dokapon games.

I've been learning small amounts of Japanese and using what I've learned and remembered from my Brawl modding days so I can fan translate or at least make a proof of concept of fan translations of the other Dokapon games, starting with Dokapon DX.

Hello,

I'm here to increase my knowledge in this culture and create some of my own romhacks.

My name is Drew. I am entering the romhacking space in an effort to personally tinker with some of my favorite video games. I have browsed casually for a few years now, and I felt it was time to experiment directly as there are seldom any mods for some of the games I enjoy. Why not give it a try and expand my knowledge? This work also fits with my interest as a general researcher!

Greetings from snowy Northeast Ohio!

I came here because I've been watching YouTube videos of Zelda 2 ROM hacks such as The Resurrection of Ganon and Winter Solstice, and I'd like to be able to play them.

The last time I obtained a Nintendo emulator and ROM files was in the late 90s, so I imagine a lot has changed since then. Back in those days, it was legal to have a ROM file if you possessed the physical game cartridge, and I still have all of my cartridges. (I got my Zelda 2 cartridge in 1989 and after almost 32 years, its batteries STILL work! They need to make car batteries and cell phone batteries out of that stuff!)

So I have some questions.

1) Is it still legal to have the ROM if you have the physical game?

2) If the answer to #1 is "yes", what emulator can I use, on a MacBook Pro running OS X 10.11.6 El Capitan, to play the Winter Solstice .IPS file and/or the ROM for the original game (if needed)?

3) Do I need the ROM for the original game to play this .IPS file?

I like to keep things above board whenever I can, so if any of your suggestions are of questionable legality, inform me of that first. It strikes me that if this stuff were roundly illegal, it wouldn't be so easy to find online, and so readily flaunted on sites like YouTube and this one.
