ROM Hacks and Hacking

Post by Ravenfreak »

Do you like to play ROM hacks of your favorite games? Or perhaps you enjoy making hacks of your favorite games? I'm a ROM hacker, I mainly hack the 8-bit Sonic games for the Sega Master System/Game Gear. Lately I've been documenting the inner workings of Sonic Drift, and found out it's the only 8-bit Sonic title to have a battery to save the player's best times in free run mode! I've also been working on a few split disassemblies of a few 8-bit titles. The only one on Github is my Sonic 1 Game Gear disassembly, my Sonic Chaos disassemblies were posted on Sonic Retro years ago. I've also been working on a disassembly for Sonic Drift, but I haven't posted it anywhere online yet. I also started working on a Pokemon Red/Blue hack using the pokered disassembly. I added some scrapped Pokemon from the Spaceworld Demo into the game, and added the dark type to the game too but haven't done much with it since. Next to forums, rom hacking is probably my favorite hobby. xD Honestly I'm shocked I didn't make a topic about this sooner...

I've never really liked hacks or mods of any kind. Somehow my mentality demands this one definitive version of a game. (I'm not a fan movies getting director's cuts or extended versions either.)

I only play translation hacks for Japan-only games.

I've played plenty of rom hacks of Pokemon games but too lazy to make one. I generally get how to do it, I just don't want to.

I'm no good at hacking anything, but I do like playing rom hacks, especially pokemon ones. There was a good harvest moon one too... If I recall...

I like playing mario rom hacks, if only because they're super challenging and it's easy to play them on my SNES using a flash cart.

before anyone asks, I do own an original copy of Super mario world so it's completely fine.

I like Mario and Zelda hacks.

For the Pokemon hack fans they do a great hack called 'Pokemon X Zelda' where you play as Link in the Pokemon world :)
