I've contacted a programmer who has agreed to code a game for me - which includes imported levels from an old NES title.
I've sent the .nes file.
However, they have stated to me that I need the "source code" to import the levels.
He asks, "How can I change things if I don't have code for it? It won't even let you extract graphics from that, not quality at least. To make modifications in the game there needs to be a backend for it...I get the front end game, but for modifications backend is required.
Could you help make sense of this? I also understand there may be some document(s) available here to help w/ debugging and if I send an emulator, this may solve the issue. I'm not sure if this is what they mean though.
Please understand, this is someone supposedly with knowledge of C++/ C#/ Python/ Java/ Linux/ Database/ VB/ Mobile Platforms and ECommerse plus more.
Thanks very much!
