Quote from: hex_usr on October 07, 2016, 10:44:39 PMAgain, here's the link.ROMHacking.net has a rule that any hack of a hack needs to come in the form of a patch for said hack. That means that, in order for my Beran Inn bugfix to be accepted, it needs to be a patch for mteam's Title Screen patch, not the original Japanese version. The reason for that is to prevent plagiarism. And in theory, this is an honorable reason.But what if someone has never played Dragon Quest I & II before and wants to play it in English and with the fixes? In order to do so, that's 3 patches that need to be applied in order. Now, that wouldn't be so bad... if the first of those patches is inconsistent with the other 2 and requires that the ROM have a 512-byte copier header! In total, that's 5 steps in order to get started!I know a few of you suggested that I include 2 separate patches in the archive, one for the original Japanese version, and one for mteam's Title Screen patch, but I don't think that would even be compliant with the rules. It's still "plagiarism" in the "legal" sense without any consideration for the circumstances.I'd like to get this patch uploaded just like every other non-moderator here, but that's not going to happen soon.
