i need people who can do the following or information on where i can find stuff out about how to:

a) completely hack a rom, change graphics, game structure etc (think strange mario brothers with new characters)

b) compose nsf files to be used in a rom

c) transfer a rom to a memory card to be used in an N.E.S. cartridge

all help is appreciated

I will half help you, and half criticize you. Be more specific! You just don't ask how to completely hack a rom, if you want to hack graphics, tell whether you want to edit pallettes or tiles. For what system, there's a big difference. Oh, and there's something called a flash cart, one just dosen't put a single rom on one! Go to http://www.romhacking.com look for faqs on how to hack. Don't look for help here, there's too many emos! If you prove that you're good enough I may join, so hit the books!

Well yes, actually, you can if you want. And NES flash carts are odd...that's why there isn't any (to my knowledge anyway) commercially available one...because of all the mapper hardware etc, the flash cart would not be able to work with a game that it doesn't have the mapper for, unless I suppose it worked in a 'lock-on'ish kind of way like the N64 backup units do.

At least on a gba flash card there is "NO" point to put only one rom unless it's a huge compilation, like snes advance, or pocketnes. Props to loopy and flubba for their hard work, and dedication in making these. Oh, and check out goomba, also made by flubba; an emulator for monochrome gb roms.

Everybody who first steps into ROM hacking wants to make the latest and greatest hack. What they don't realize is it's a lot of work and it actually takes a good deal of knowledge on the subject... and experience. The only way to get experience is to try stuff out -- but don't expect your first attempts to be anything decent. You have to learn how to crawl before you can try to walk -- or you'll fall flat on your face.

Before solisciting for others, make it clear you can stand on your own two feet. Nobody is going to join you if they're going to have to do all the work -- or hold your hand through the entire process. Do some work on your own -- then show off what you've got so that people can see how serious you are and/or what you can do -- then people will consider teaming up with you.

This is the whole idea, i was sort of trying to keep it a secret but fuck it:

I'm working on an album of 8bit music with massively edited breaks/beats over it, called The Adventures of Saskrotch & 14/F (an alias of mine), the idea is pretty simple, an album of videogame music with titles that suggest a story line. The follow up idea is to create a rom to go along with it, probably Mario 3 with different graphics, levels, and music. I want to compose nsf files based on the album, this is probably something i will end up doing myself on one of my friends computers (the main reason i need people to "do everything" is because i have a mac and there's little to no rom hacking software for it.) i'm also planning on doing the graphics by myself on an old os9 prog called TileEater.

I guess what i need is someone who can edit the levels (i'm also planning on writing "blueprints" for the layout of each level), and more info on where to get stuff for transfering the Rom to a cartridge (i only want the one game on there, hopefully to sell copies along with the album), i looked up info on the eprom burner, didnt find out much.

anyways i hope i answered any questions asked

Ah, I thought I'd seen your name somewhere, I guess it was on one of your mixes. I can't help you other than to wish you luck.

It looks like you forgot the > after the " between the link and the title of the link. So the board posted it as blank, since it's still there in the source.

I'm not too sure where you could find ASM stuff, but try googling up "65816 Documentation" or "SNES ASM tutorials/documentation".

Hex is easy to understand, just visit the tutorial at Parodius Translations:

http://pt.parodius.com

Click on Lesson 1. Real easy to grasp Hex, learning from there.

For the SNES, graphics editing may be easy (If it can be considered that at all), but you can change Fonts 2 ways:

1) Use TileLayer/Naga/whatever to do it graphically, or

2) Change them through Hex.

I was learning about the second method on the Parodius site too. It seems to be explained improperly, since you need to know Hex and a little bit of basic knowledge first, but it also seems to be effective. On the SNES, since font's can use more than 1 tile at a time, you might wanna read up on that.

Prime Example: Bakumatsu Korinden ONI 2. I gave up after failing to translate the Name Selection screen to English.

But for the rest, just read the tutorials that are floating around carefully. http://www.romhacking.com has tons of them, as well as programs.

There are. But I can't remember it that well, since I was probably....Maybe 7 when I first played one.

That was 11 years ago. I had no idea thats what it was, but looking back, that must have been a flash cart for NES.
