Default Help On Updating a Game

I'm Looking to make an update to Major League Baseball Featuring Ken Griffey Jr. for the N64. I was suggested here by tecmobuilders.com

Looking for someone to either be able to make an editor for me for this game, or help me edit it. I would be able to come up with all the rosters, and ratings, I just need someone to help me be able to put it onto the rom. Anyone be able to help me with this?

Well...I'm not gonna yell at you or something, but you do realize the ROM hacking part is the hard part, right? You might want to look into hacking yourself. If you're really lucky, the stats might be in the ROM in plain text...meaning you could change it with a hex editor fairly easily.

I was just saying that since it's the hard part you might not get anyone to help you out, so you ought to check it out yourself and learn more. Go to places like romhacking.net, or other hacking websites and you could find some info. Somebody help me out with the sites, I know there are a bunch of good ones.

Just download a hex editor such as Hex Workshop and then open the file and do a search for someone's name if it comes up your in luck, if no things will be harder...

Looks like its not in the ROM txt. So would paying someone to help me do this be illegal?

Well, I *seriously* doubt you have an N64 cart dumper and dumped the rom off of your own game cart. This means that your mere possession of the rom is already illegal.
