Don't you mean Pit Fighter on ANY platform?

I'm only going to say this.

The scene I knew died two years ago.

Isn't that when you were banned from here? I don't recall the exact time though, so I'm only asking.

Bit: Nice to know your sense of optimism is as high as ever! And the thread title should be, "Decline of ROM hacking, part II" <img src=smilies/magbiggrin.gif>

Whatever happens to "the scene" as it has been so stupidly dubbed remains to be seen. The community just needs something to lift some spirits. Although that's only a short term fix. Personally (and it has been said by others) I don't think it'll ever completely die. Some die hards will remain, or a new generation of hackers will arrive, and the learning process begins all over again. Only time will tell.

Phhht. I still use mine.. that's the one console that really died (market wise) before it's time...and there are plenty of people developing games for it as we speak. *see dcemulation.com*.
But you're right about how the games become more difficult to hack as the system is more advanced. I'm happy just messing around with NES, SNES and Gameboy stuff.<img src=smilies/werd.gif>

You know I'm a hardcore pessimist, Leno. I always have a bleaker outlook on matters and take some things a little more seriously than they need to be. I still say what I stated is an accurate account of how matters stand.

Would it be better for you if I were to interpret these events as an evolution of rom hacking? You know I wouldn't, but I suppose it's accurate. We'll really just have to wait and see.

I think I was banned a year and a half ago. I've only been back for five months.

And my scene had nothing to do with ZD, at least not then. I started here, then left.

Psst. Dreamcast games are fucking easy to hack. There just aren't any text-heavy enough to merit a translation that have enough interest to actually get a translation.

Shit, as long as the game bothers to malloc() enough space for the script, they will generally just store everything in SJIS. Even if half-width ASCII is missing from the font, you at least get full width.



(a project that died because, at the time, I couldn't figure out how to allocate more memory--yes, the system had plenty more)

The lack of usable emulators hurts, too. I mean, yes, you can test the game on hardware, but having to burn a CD every time is a huge chore; and not everybody has access to a coder's cable, nor knows how to use it.

You know what else is killing it? No one seems to actually hack anymore, they just sit around talking about it. All the stupid Scene-Dramaâ„¢ is pointless, I haven't played a good hack in ages.
