ROM Hacking

Making Changes

The third tutorial in the series and the first one where we actually do some hacking!

In this tutorial we have a look at using the information provided on this site's hacking section. We only look at using the savestate information to start with which is a lot easier than hacking the actual ROM when you are first starting out, especially when it comes to the task of finding the offsets you want to change.

The down side to this technique is that savestate changes aren't permanent like they are with ROM hacks, but this doesn't stop them being a lot of fun and a good way to get started!
