Gigaleak Discussion
« on: July 29, 2020, 08:45:58 pm »
So I'm wondering what our stance is here on the current "Gigaleak"?

Obviously, sharing files is out of the question, but are we allowed to discuss discoveries? Are we allowed to use found assets to create and share new hacks with? etc. etc.?

I've been trying to find out which community is actually documenting this stuff, but I don't know where they're hiding. There's no point in trying to catalogue stuff myself if someone else has already done the hard work. I tried asking a few people on Twitter, but they wouldn't even give me the time of day.

For example, these shots (from Nintendo Power Magazine) match the BS Zelda tiles in the leak, except it's the Boy Mascot instead of Link.



I'm playing around with putting them back into the ROM right now, but the palettes don't quite match up :) And the older(?) tiles have a few extra frames here and there that the "final" ROM is missing (including items like the Master Key which did't get used).

There is already a thread about this over here:

I expect that is inevitable.

Indeed, I guess we just have to sit tight and see what develops.

What even happened with the previous big leaks?  It's getting hard to keep track of everything.  Was there ever a thorough dissection of the old Pokemon GS beta ROM, for instance?
This signature is an illusion and is a trap devised by Satan. Go ahead dauntlessly! Make rapid progres!

I don't know much about anything, just seen a lot of activity on Twitter.
4chan had tons of posts, but it was mostly non-hackers asking for info.
I was in a Discord server briefly, but I think they kickbanned me.
