I hope I won't be shunned for this, but I do have two repros. I bought SMB2j because it was more approachable than an FDS. And I bought Mario Adventure because it was $40 rather that $130 for the Powerpak. Looking back, obviously I should have bought the Powerpak first. I know I wouldn't want to get tricked into buying a repro of NWC when I thought I was buying an original. I understand that the material that people hack is copywritten, and people need to be credited for their contributions to these works. What these people do keeps me going. But the way I see it, its sort of like that rich kid in high school that had a cd burner. He was a dick, no doubt, but I wanted to listen to Sublime in my car, so I paid him. He made no intellectual contribution to the piece of art other than his terrible handwriting, but he performed a service; albeit an illegal service.
I'm afraid, in this day and age, if someone releases intellectual property freely to the internet, people can do with it what they wish. That being said, I do not condone removing credits. When Mario Adventure 3 (Koopa Kingdom Escape) is released I will ask Dahrk Daiz who he prefers me to buy a cart-only repro from, but I will get a copy. I don't want to sound like a butt, and I know how the internet retail community can be caustic to put it nicely. But I think the other half of rom-hacking is wanting people to play your game (the first half being awesome enough to do it in the first place). If I poured my soul into a game, and I saw people selling it without my consent, I would be both honored and irritated. (Honored that you'd want to sleep with my wife, but irritated because, "HEY, That's MY wife!")
If I had a hack, I would want people to play it any way the could. Releasing on RHDN doesn't net me any profit, and neither does watching others burn carts. I don't want to burn EEPROMS so I don't. If others do, that's their prerogative, as long as their quality control doesn't make me look bad. Do you guys have any repro-ers with morals that you do approve of?
