Public Translation Submissions and Foreign Language Patch Support!
12 May 2006 10:13AM EST - Update by Nightcrawler
Once again ROMhacking.net brings you more site features and continues to put the power in your hands. We now provide the ability for public translation patch submissions as well as foreign (non-English) patch support due to popular demand!
We now support Chinese, English, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish patch submissions. If your language isn’t on that list and you have a patch to submit, Contact Us so we can add your language! We are encouraging bringing together the largest pool of talented ROM hackers in the world.
I’d like to clarify a few things. First, English is the default selection in the Translation section. You will NOT see any foreign patches unless you explicitly select a language or the ‘All’ option! Second, this announcement applies to files only. The actual site and forums will still remain in English. English will remain the ’standard’ communication language on this site.
So, let’s start submitting the foreign patches you’d like to see in the archive. Also, feel free to respond to this announcement in the Forums. We are always interested in community feedback!
ROMhacking.net is MOVING to a NEW SERVER!
21 April 2006 1:31PM EST - Update by Nightcrawler
This is some important news that is going to effect everyone. When this site was started, it was unknown if it would take off, so it was put on deadbeat-inc.com to tread the waters. We have since out grown our current subdomain and host and far exceeded our expectations of popularity. It is because of this we are moving to a new Virtual Private Server (VPS/Semi-dedicated), and officially moving to http://www.romhacking.net. How will this affect you? Read on to find out.
This move is going to happen very quickly. It is expected to go down late this Sunday April 23rd. UPDATE YOUR LINKS. Using http://www.romhacking.net will ensure the best service during the transition. When the move is started, the following will happen:
- http://romhacking.deadbeat-inc.com/ will NO LONGER BE THE SITE ADDRESS! However, there will be a ‘we’ve moved page’ up or limited copy of the site.
- The forum access and all submission related pages on the site will go offline at the old address while the database is synced at the new location. (10 minute process)
- Affective immediately after that, the new location site will be turned on, and forum and site activity will resume there.
- http://www.romhacking.net will start pointing to the new location between a few minutes to a few days after the move depending on your geographical location and DNS propagation time. During this time a frozen version of this page will exist at the old location (archives online, but no forum, news, or submissions).
While I have extensivley tested the site and operation at the new server, I do expect we may have some minor growing pains. Anyone experiencing any problems should report it to me on the forum (if possible) or via e-mail (ncrawlerNOFNSPAM@verizon.net).
I’d like to thank SonofMog for being supportive and aggressive in helping to launch this site as well as providing hosting services for the site thus far. I hope to see you all very soon on the new server at http://www.romhacking.net where we will have many new abilities.
Document and Utility Public Submission News and More!
13 April 2006 11:20AM EST - Update by Nightcrawler
The most active ROM hacking resource and news site on the net has been working hard to continue to meet it’s goal of putting the power in YOUR hands. It is with great pleasure that we announce the ability for public Documents and Utilities submissions!
Just like our Hacks section has already, you can now add entries directly into our database (subject to staff screening) for your favorite documents and utilities. This is YOUR database. If something isn’t there that you think should be, you can now add it yourself! We are continuing our mission to remove the staff bottleneck (visitors having to rely on staff to do everything). Ultimately, the staff’s purpose on this site is for maintenance, and screening. It’s up to YOU to add the content you think belongs here. It’s up to YOU to turn YOUR archive into the biggest and best it can be.
Add your Documents, Utilities, and Hacks here on the Submit Files Page.
Other New Additions to the Site:
- A ROMhacking.net Dictionary of ROMhacking Terms was added! Please submit any corrections or additions you’d like to see on the Forum.
- New Integrated Site Theme - A new theme entitled Metroid (made by p4ch3c0) was added.
- New Integrated Site Theme - A new theme entitled Transcorp (made by Nightcrawler) was added.
- Translation Scene History was added here on the site due to the deletion of the wiki page on Wikipedia. The history lives on at ROMhacking.net!
- Collapsable Sticky Posts - By popular demand, stickies are now collapsable! Go ahead and try it with this one! :P
Help Wanted Section + Shadowrun Mega CD translation developments
14 March 2006 6:58PM EST - Update by Neil
Hello all! We haven’t talked much about the Help Wanted Section of our site, so we thought we’d take this opportunity to point it out to you all and to pimp out a recent addition.
A gentleman by the name of Hikaru has begun work translating Shadowrun for Sega’s Mega CD (see website), into English. Work began only very recently, and he is doing it from screengrabs taken during gameplay, since he lacks the technical skill to hack games and create a text dump. Perhaps someone from the ROMhacking community could lend their technical assistance to further the project? It’s a small start, but hopefully it snowballs and grows bigger. Check out his preliminary site for contact details, further info, and screens! First mention of this project was on GameFAQs’ Sega CD Shadowrun board, which also contains some further info, and is where Hikaru can currently be found.
Sounds promising! Not many translations have ever been attempted for the Sega CD. All the best to him. If any of you think you have the skills to help out with that project, or any of the other projects in the Help Wanted Section, get out there and get networked with other hackers!

New Features Added to the Site
07 February 2006 11:35AM EST - Update by Nightcrawler
This is an update to let you know that we’ve been busy behind the scenes lately at ROMhacking.net. Several new additions (mostly minor) have been added to the site. You may have already noticed some of them. Many of these features were suggested by members of the community, just like you!
Here are the latest site additions:
- News Archive- Don’t miss out on those news items that scrolled off the page since your last visit! The News Archive is searchable as well!
- Column Heading Ordering - You can now click on the column headings in all major sections of the site to order your search results and listings the way you want.
- News Submissions are now tracked in user accounts - Make sure you’re logged into your board account when submitting news and it will be tracked for future profile and community contribution statistical purposes. You DO NOT NEED an account to submit news though!
- Name and e-mail cookie remembering for News - If you are logged into your board account, the name and e-mail fields for news submissions will be automatically filled in. You do NOT have to use your board name for news submissions to be tracked and linked to your account.
- Quote, Bold, and Italic BB code support has been added to News Submissions to make your news submissions look even better. See the Submit News page for details.
- New Integrated Site Theme - A new theme entitled Bonsai (made by Aeris130) was added.
- Translation Language/Script Help Board Added - A new board devoted to discussing language translations and getting script translation help has been created in the forums. (Think MO’s board, but broader.)
ROM Hacks Section is Open!
26 January 2006 6:44PM EST - Update by Nightcrawler
I promised everybody a ROM Hacks section on launch day and it’s now time for me to deliver! The Hacks section introduces a few new features to the site as well as marks the next step toward giving all of you, the community, the power.
FIRST, You may be about to complain and say there are only a few hacks in this section. That’s where YOU come in. As I have stated in the past, this site is moving away from relying on staff to do everything. You can now use the ‘Submit Hack’ section to actually submit a hack to the database (via the same form we do!) and create the new page for it! As soon as your submission is approved, it will go directly into the database as is!
YOU have the power to put all the hacks you think should be preserved in the archive on the site. Don’t complain to us that your favorite hack isn’t there. Add it yourself! You don’t have to be a hack author to add a hack to the site.
In addition to that, the hacks section has now added column heading ordering capabilities to your search results. You can now click on a column heading and order your results the way you want! These capabilities will be added to the rest of the site once we’re sure all the bugs are worked out with the hacks section.
This is our first test case. If all goes well with this section, we will add these features to the rest of the sections, and pursue the next step of allowing you to edit database entries yourself(subject to staff approval)if you see a mistake or missing update etc.
So, let’s continue to band together and make this community Hacks section one of the most comprehensive and best around!
NOTE: You must have a board/site account and be logged in to submit a hack.
ROMhacking.net is Officially Open for Business!
23 December 2005 12:00AM EST - Update by Nightcrawler
Welcome everybody to ROMhacking.net! After many months of work, this site is officially open! However, the work is far from done. This is an ongoing effort to provide the best ROMhacking community site we can. Many additional features are on the way. We have continual open development discussions in our forums, so pop by if you’re interested in where the site is going and have something to say!
I’m going to spare you from a long speech. If you want to know what this site is all about and how it came to be, visit the ‘About this Site’ section. All you need to know is right there! We have much more material to offer than ROMhacking.com ever did. So, spread the word!
Our resident staff member Neil_ of former ROMhacking.org glory had this to say:
“Finally, the archive is back online. Hopefully the third time is the charm as we seem to be running out of major TLDs. This time I am only minimally involved, so hopefully it’ll last more than a year.”
With that said, enjoy the site and let’s bring back and revitalize the ROMhacking community!
NOTE: A HACKS SECTION IS IN PROGRESS AND WILL BE COMING IN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS!
