ROM Hacking - Getting stumped by my own old code.

Submitted by kmeisthax on Fri, 05/13/2016 - 00:38 in ROM Hacking

This is a bit of an experiment into a new format of programming videos. I am disassembling a partial fan translation modification of Keitai Denjuu Telefang, aka "That Bootleg Game Twitch Plays Pokemon Uses After A Season Ends". Due to inexperience and lack of proper assembler support we never actually created source code for our work, instead hand-assembling it into the ROM and passing IPS patches around. This would have been acceptable except for the fact that this game comes in two versions and we only have a patch for one of them.

So this is a video I've been trying to make for a while but have had trouble with due to screen recorder issues. I've finally found a solution that works, albeit at lower quality, so please excuse any artifacts you might see here.

So I've been working on an RPG Maker game for a few months now and I've probably spent more time extending the game engine than actually building content for it. It's based on web technologies, which is good, but it lacks support for a few features I really wanted from this. So I added them.

The entire system is designed to make established rightsholders' lives easier when "protecting" their work.

The only legal thing one can do within fandom is to consume. Reacts To Fine Brothers ReactWorld Licensing Program

The biggest faux pas one can make when licensing copyrights and trademarks is to do it very publicly, especially now with stuff like YouTube, where your audience and your fans are directly connected. You cannot just go out and start doing things that sound like you're asking for money, unless you're specifically setting up something like a Patreon, where it's specifically stated that the money you're asking for will go back into the production of the content that people came for. And I don't think the Fine Brothers really understood this.
