Do you have a bakcup of your rom? i mean the modified one. the editor is becoming more stable in the recent few months but we are still unsure if the editor will corrupt the rom or crash by itself during the editing. Send me your rom patch file in the discord (PM) and i can try to see what's wrong with the data in the rom and what need to be fixed in the editor. and tell me which version you were using when editing the level. You really should use the latest unofficial build i made in the discord server, they are more stable.Thanks! But, Something VERY Weird Happened In The Editor. I Had Just Finished Up The Hall Of Crecent Moons 3rd Room,
But Now When I Open My Rom And Go Into The Level, There Is Just A Black Screen. Do You Know Whats Up With That?
ROM hacks aren't controversial, but ROMs are.I'm not really into stuff like this, but can someone explain why ROM hacks are so controversial?
Ah, I get it now. I already knew it had something to do with the distribution of copyrighted material, but that's about all I knew of it.ROM hacks aren't controversial, but ROMs are.
People don't distribute the fulll ROM as one file because it contains copyrighted content (read, the entire original game + edits). Meanwhile patch files (which most ROM hackers distribute) merely contain the changes they made to said game, not the original copyrighted content.
It's like distributing a Mystery Science Theatre 3000 style commentary; if you distribute it along with the film, you'll need express permission from the studio who owns the film, whereas if you distribute the script separately, you don't.
Hence why full ROMs aren't posted here, but patch files are.
