The Metroid Ridley X hack looks like it may be worth it. I only played it for five minutes but so far it does seem quite different. Will try again and report back.

Say, does anyone know where the Super Mario World Vanilla Level Showcases 1-6 are? 7, 8 and 9 can be found here, but I couldn't find the other six even on the main Vanilla site.

My understanding is that they didn't start making VLDC compilation hacks until 7

On a similar note, I patched the rom, but... I can't play it on SNESX9. What gives?

You know, you could have just said "maybe your SNESX9 isn't up to date," or something. Maybe mine isn't. I'm kind of afraid to download a new emulator, though, since a while back we got shut off for downloading certain roms and music. ...I'm not even sure hacks are right, though from what I know, both hacks and emulators are perfectly legal to download, but I'm not 100% sure.

Did you even read the short paragraph I linked?

Your emulator not being up to date has absolutely nothing to do with it. You don't need to download a new emulator or any of that...

Please go back to the link I posted and read it.

Wrong. The readme in the actual hack-file told me that past versions of SNESX9 wouldn't work with the game, so in fact it COULD have something to do with it.

And yeah, I did read the link, which mentioned that either the rom I'm using doesn't have a/the correct header or it's corrupted, and that might be why it doesn't work, but again: the readme says that not all versions of SnesX9 are compatible. Please don't act like someone doesn't have their facts straight if you yourself do not.

I couldn't care any less about how that hack works, I said that a new version of the emulator had nothing to do with the link I had posted. (Because you had replied "you could have just said maybe your SNESX9 isn't up to date", as if my link was about that...)

Anyway... I'm glad you decided to read the hack's readme file and figured out what your problem was.

If at least one person learned how to read a FAQ or a readme file thanks to this, I'd say it was helpful. I never had any interest in being nice, though.

I wish I could post more useless, sarcastic comments without trying to help at all, like you do, but it would probably get me banned again...

You know, being a jerk isn't helping. Any point you could have made is made moot by the fact you had to be an ***hole about it.

Also, I'd like some clarification on the legality of hacks and emulators.

Hacks are largely a legal gray area (haven't really been legally challenged beyond things like C&D and DMCA which don't set legal precedents) and emulators are largely considered to be legal. You could dissect the finer points of it ad nauseam, but if you want to do that there are already other threads that better serve that purpose. If you want the most definitive, reliable advice, of course, consult a lawyer.
