I have the full disassembled assembly for snes gradius 3 that I would like to release. Is this something that I can upload to romhacking.net without breaking any romhacking.net rules?

Yes, these are examples, they are listed under docs. http://www.romhacking.net/documents/

Thanks nesrocks!

I am familiar with the document section. Maybe I should rephrase my question. Is there anywhere that says what data inside a rom file that we can and can not upload to romhacking.net? If we can upload complete disassembled assembly for roms can we upload complete music, or complete graphics, or the data that builds backgrounds and sprites. I have a crazy amount of stuff that I have documented over the years that I would like to release but I was always under the impression that I need to write a program that rips all of this stuff out of it in order to share it with everyone. Can any of the staff shed some light on this matter for me?

There are hacks on this site which contain full games, so I don't see how this would be an issue.

Full games? That can’t be right. Nobody can upload full games unless they made the game themselves. Maybe you’re thinking patches not full games.

They're including full games inside of a patch of a different game, like the All-Stars hack for Super Mario Bros. 3.

Interesting, I guess some rules “can be bent and others can be broken”. I’m not really looking to bend or break any rules.
Maybe that patch slipped through, idk. :huh:

FWIW, there are a few disassemblies hosted here that are complete to the point where you can actually recreate the original ROM merely by assembling them.  As far as I know, this has never been an issue.

Thanks everyone! I’ll submit some stuff this weekend starting with complete gradius 3 asm and I might also submit some of my mega man x v1.1 files. :thumbsup:
