How complete should a patch be before posting it?
« on: February 15, 2019, 01:31:19 pm »
So I'm working on a saga frointer rebalance patch, with it I'm about 65% done on the player side but havent gotten much done on the enemy or shopping side done. I'm hoping the patch will inspire new interest in this game. At what point should i just release the patch and say its done.

Off topic but if im no longer in contact with my old colab partners, can i post my old gba mod here? And also how do i add to the data crystal. There's nothing from Rockman.exe.net posted here

There is an entry for rockman/megaman battle network 1. http://datacrystal.romhacking.net/wiki/Mega_Man_Battle_Network
Not sure what is required to edit the wiki at this point.

As for when to release then up to you, and you are probably long past any point where it would be deemed too trivial to be included in the site. More complete leads to a bigger punch as you will hopefully be playing a fully realised hack and not beta testing something for someone. On the other hand if it does something interesting (several games have some very nice missions/levels that can be played standalone) then there is that. As it is ROM hacks for free then nothing stopping a rolling release/continuous release either.
