Default DS rom hacking

Anyone bothered with this except for me? I haven't seen any projects or anything like that, but I've dabbled in it a little. I took this hidden character portrait sequence test that I found on the Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin ROM and placed it where the intro dialog is supposed to be. It can be viewed <a href=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sotprpkP3gc>here</a>.

anyway, discuss

I'm sure Animal Crossing was ripped apart by hackers which put rest to a lot of rumours.

Hey, nice work. What did you change around exactly? (or do you just know how the game does scripting and such)

Thanks. All I did though was copy the sequence data and pasted it where the intro dialog was supposed to be. I originally transferred the "translated" table data, overwriting a lot more than it should have *kicks translhextion*, so there's a lot of junk data afterwards and the game hangs shortly afterward.

Oh yeah, it probably stores it's text in 'plain text' in the ROM like Dawn of Sorrow huh? That's cool though, nice find. Has anybody looked for dummied out weapons and such in Portrait of Ruin yet?
