  1. im trying to romhack a game. i own it legit, but im still using a sub for this just in case and will not say what game it is

    making the thread so i might stick with the project cause if i dont i know ill dick around for a while and then forget about it

    setting goals for the same reason. easy ones first cause i dont know what im doing and then harder ones
    1. get most of the data unencrypted so i can look at it
    2. change lines of dialogue
    3. edit a sprite
    4. add a new line of dialogue somewhere
    5. edit an animation
    will get more ambitious if i figure out how to do those

    i'm partway through goal 1 and looking through the data files for stuff that got dummied out
     
  2. found a bunch of debugging flags hidden in the script saying to tell someone if you see them. am telling this thread that i saw them

  4. havent found a line at the start of the game thats good for testing yet but i can make a character i hate say 'punch me in the face'

    this is too much power for one fan to wield

  5. can change lines. tried copying how the game does multiline dialogue to add a second line to something but it didn't show. probably need to change event scripting somewhere
     
  6. never mind it was easy

    my power grows

  10. found some dialogue with the word 'vicisitudes' in it dummied out

    why would you bother typing vicissitude if you were just gonna dummy it out

    you do realize that romhacking a game you own is legal so long as you don't distribute the roms to people who don't already own the game?
