Some welcome stuff...

Welcome to the first issue of unofficial ROM Hacking Newsletter!

This newsletter has to make some of you remember of ROM Hackers Weekly newsletter which used to be popular and issued HOTW/HOTM/1337/don't ALT+F4/etc. awards to hacks. I won't do this here, although such thing might be planned for future. I will summmarise events on this board, point out interesting hacks and post answer to questions you may ask me (aka Martin²) via PM. Anyone is free to join the team to help me expand the newsletter.

------------------------------

Important notices
READ CAREFULLY, please!

This thread was made to present hacks and summarise events and it is meant to be high quality. I would like to ask you for making thoughtful responses. If you are planning to make a response just to rise up your postcount, let your fingers take a break. Don't post then.

------------------------------

This week's events
What happened here...

CBM's anger
CBM has gotten mad about n00bs (http://pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=125815), and so he put up a nice bit of rant. Many people agree with his constructive criticsm, but some tried to insult and looked like they wanteda flame war. It is sure an interesting topic, so you should keep an eye on it. Of course, be careful and wear something that repels flames xD

Productive discussion in the ROM hacking board
It's pretty nice to see people talking nicely to others and many polls growing. I would recommend the Most hackable ROM (http://pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=124332) poll. It's quite interesting, indeed. And don't forget Diamond and Pearl hacking (http://pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=82080), where some guys are trying to make GBA obsolete ;).

GBC hackers and hacks reappearing
AntiRellik (most of you don't know him), a nice guy who even remembers golden era of Mew3, Enix-Zae, CBM and other legends of hacking, has been quite active on the board lately, and also put up some interesting opininons in CBM's thread, and he also started the poll I recommend. So why won't we say that he's poster of the day for today.

If you have any nomination for this positon, just PM me or reply.

And the hacks: Pokémon Plasma Red (http://pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=71216) and Secrets and Rumors (http://pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=125910) are back and better than ever. Seems like GBC hackers have gotten more courage after CBM's post. Wishing good luck to you guys, it will be hard over here with all those GBA hacks coming up.
------------------------------
RHN's system
How does it work?
As it is the first issue, let's talk about RHN's system. You will be able to see current events over here, then some pinned hacks and answers to your questions posted after previous issue. This RHN will be short, cause we had no people asking anything. Imporant thing to get people's attention will be "Pinned hacks" section. It will recommend maximally 3 hacks at the time, which are worth seeing or playing. It shouldn't be considered as an award, but it can be delightful to get some extra attention, right? So, for any nominations, PM me. Sorry to say, but ShinyGold isn't allowed. It's way too much popular, it doesn't need this thread.

------------------------------

Pinned hacks of RHN 1
So, here we go! No award, but a bit more attention over here. So, I say, it should go to three hacks. GBC hacks. They deserve it for hard work their authors have made. This time, I picked them, but from now on, you can choose, too. Not SG, as I said. And I will explain the reason why only GBC hacks were selected this time: To give them at least a bit more attention than before, to make some equality in ROM hacking between generations. But, from now on, it will be quality which will make the decision. Not equality. Although these hacks need equality, they are really well-made.

Pokémon Prism by Coolboyman (http://pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=85340)

Pokémon Prism is totally perfect hack of Gold, where you wouldn't recognize any part of old Gold xD It's full of new features. There's a beta available and I am sure as hell it is worth playing ;)
http://rijon.nintendo-net.com/sspage/title.PNG



Pokémon Plasma Red by Blazichu (http://pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=71216)

Really nice Gold hack full of new tiles. Beta isn't available, but the thread is worth checking out.

http://www.freewebs.com/pkmngoldhacker/0.WorldMap.PNG

Pokémon: Secrets and Rumors by Skeetendo, Inc. (http://pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=125910)

The hack you may remember is back and better than ever! There isn't a beta yet, but the screenshots and al those rumors are amazing and worth seeing.

http://skeetendo.net/images/ohboy.png
------------------------------
Let's finish!
Yes, even this post ends :P

Let's say this is a test issue to see if you want something like this. If yes, I would like to ask you for some feedback. So, have fun guys and girls, the golden era of ROM hacking returns!

Wow, this is great!
I like the ROM newsletter!
You have the right idea on how you did it.
HOTM/HOTW sounds like a great idea too!
I understand why SG shouldn't be nominated, its so popular that everyone will vote for it automatically.

I hope for more of these in the future :)

Great Idea!
but I think it should be possible to nominate shinygold..
cuz, u could make it only possible to make a hack only win once in a month? or something like that..
It just wouldn't be right to not be possible to nominate sg..

Im excited to see whats nextweek ;P

Well, it doesn't matter if people cant nominate SG, but... I hope that all the hacks get a good chance of showing up ;P

Good idea, I support it as long as you take this seriously.

By the way, I wished this would get pinned at the Hacks Showcase section, it'd be easier to get it noticed around there (I guess more people wander around there), don't you think, people (mainly Christos and Jake), it's a good idea, think about moving it :)

Thank you, itman. I just wanted to return this board a bit of its former glory xD. Now really. If we ad something like this before, more people could get visible over here.

I think this is another great idea to help get other hacks noticed, and to learn more about the authors.

Thanks :) It was originally you who inspired me to step out of the row and do something ;)

Awesome idea Martin ;3

This should be made into a website, rather than a thread

( Or at least a blog hosted on a server )

Thank you. I would happily move it onto a website, but I am not sure if RHN was that popular over there. Look, I just left for 8 hours of sleep and 9 replies. I doubt that people would visit a website that often.

Excellent idea, PC has needed this for a long time now.

EDIT: Well done on the layout, it looks very professional.

Thanks ^^ The layout is my own work, just pure CSS and BBCode :)

That looks great Martin², but what about Pokemon Diamon, the dude's hack? I guess there's always next week/month. How often do you plan on releasing a new newsletter?

I decied to get a system into pinning hacks. There can be only three per issue. And I would like to issue RHN every week, but there's a little problem. I will be absent from Feb. 16 to Mar. 1 and I won't be able to access PC. So I would like to ask all of you for posting feedback until I am back. I will make RHN2 sooner this time, hope on Thursday. Maybe it will be a bit longer.

Great Idea!

Edit:
@Thethethethe: here's your answer I guess

I don't want to be unfair to SG, but it's just way too much popular to need its popularity to be boosted. There are too many hacks shaded by t so they need to come out a bit.

Very nice job!

Wow nice to see Secrets and Rumors mentioned XD

Great idea and nice layout. If you are looking to host a little website/blog like VC said, I'll be more than happy to offer up some space on Skeetendo.

So, if you really want to have this on a website, I can try. You would really give me some webspace? I would be grateful for that :)

Great idea! This is great man. It has all the important things that have happened, all in one convenient place.

Thanks for support, nice to see you like it.

I would love to have this pinned cause it would be more noticed, but I am not a mod or staff member, so I shouldn't issue awards or ask this to be pinned. Maybe I will issue some awards which won't be PC wide, just RHN award for ...insert award here. ...Of course I am taking it seriously, it was way too much of work for this to be a joke. And sorry for SG, but we both know that it's popular even without this. But I don't say you cannot get some award later ;)


And please, people who want SG to be voted for, stop that. I won't chnge my mind. And don't forget, pinning hacks and issuing awards isn't same. Hack can be pinned and don't need to get an award, or hack isn't pinned and gets 1337 for example.

Cheers!

This is a great idea! I remember R.H.W (which surely wasn't weekly :P), I hope you keep this up, I will defiantly be staying tuned.

The awards are a good idea, keeping Shiny Gold seems good too. Let's face it, it has far too many fans and it would be unfair to every other hack out there. :D

Good luck, I think you may need it. :P

Yes, I will need it, mainly because I will need nerves made of iron to bear the pressure from SG lovers cause of my decision. So, I will try to make up another RHN around Thursday, then I am leaving for to weeks so I will have a break then I continue again.

Yay. I missed the original RHW, and I thought it should have been redone. Great work on the layout.

Thank you, it's a product of quite big amount of effort put into it.

I am happy you like it, and thanks for your support.


I would like to ask you all for giving some nominations for pinned hacks of RHN. Think about three hacks you like the most and I will decide then. Don't forget that SG isn't allowed for nomination. I might decide if I give it some award, but there's way too much of craziness around it :x I am hell sure it's good, but we all know that it doesn't need any popularity boost with RHN. And there will be new thing in pinned hacks section next time: RATING SYSTEM!

Hey, I had a few ideas to tell you about before I run away from PC for a while.

"Tip of the Issue" - Yes, it would be some little hacking trick that, to make things fair, it'd be one for GBC at one issue, one for GBA at the next one and so on. Something to help out the upcoming hackers.

"An Interesting Idea" - Basically, some idea that seems good at the Scrapbox, because they also deserve some attention.

And the rest I think it was already implemented, the news system I'd like that it'd cover all the sections in the rom hacking sections. Tutorials/Toolbox/Scrapbox/Hacks Showcase/etc (anything that seems interesting, like a tool being released, a tutorial getting posted), anything that serves as people's effort getting noticed.

I would like to ask you all for giving some nominations for pinned hacks of RHN. Think about three hacks you like the most and I will decide then.

Sure thing, I suggest Ruby Destiny, Marble and Omega (I'd suggest Diamond, but I'd wait till a new update is done)

Good luck on the next issue! Good thing the interviews are making a return too >.< (that helps to know more about the hackers :D)

Okay, thank you, Went :) You can contact Virtual Chatot by PM and tell him you have my permission to work on issue 3. There will be three of you, so I think you will get that done easily. I am gonna do the issue 2 and I will send you all PM to infrom you when I come back... but since it's quicker way to tell you here, I will return on March 1st.

I would love to help too (if needed)!

This is a great idea, and i would like to take part in it!

You can think about any suggestions if you want, and post them here, I will be glad to read them.

Guys, I am terribly sorry, I am leaving PC. Maybe I will return someday, but till then ,I cannot be here. The reasons are personal and I don't want you to contact me to talk about it. From now on, I hope that Virtual Chatot will continue with RHN (he should create new thread) and others will help him. I am sad to do this, really.

If I contact anyone of you by IM, be happy ;)

Don't send me IMs or PMs unless I tell you that it's okay.

Till my comeback, if any, farewell.

I'm writing up issue two guys, no worries.

Not that much news going on around here though, so don't expect it to be quite as big as last weeks

Ok what about Tool of the Issue?
Have a vote for the best tool out there.
That's a great Idea though A-Map would obviously win, Elitemap is good too, but let's face it... Without A-Map hacking would be about 10x more difficult than it is now, EliteMap has a few bugs and is more likely to crash the ROM.

Anyway... my point is, A-Map will win, but it is a great idea. :D

A-map is simpler also but elitemap comes in a whole package of other hacking goodies which was mostly replaced by you and hackmew's tool factory darthatron.
Elitemap is too complex for me.
So i think a_map won..big time.

Suggestion: Try to make it as an e-mail newsletter as well. People who want to sign up for the e-mail newsletter could PM you with their e-mail address.

And it seems that I've came just in time.

I will write p issue two this week. Sorry for delay. I was away for two weeks so I couldn't do much. Hope my absense wasn't very painful for you all and from now on I am gonna try to release issues of RHN periodically each week.

Cheers!

It's not like it was painful, but, we really need this thing of the newsletter to be more often (or, at least, to be told that it would be monthly, which I always recommend it to be, just in case stuff happens in the middle, just like what happened)

Anyway, we have a lot of new hacks to talk about for the next issue, so it's not like there aren't any news (specially with the release of AMap 1.9, you can make a whole issue with that >o<)

What I liked about the old hack newsletter, was the "reviews and interviews" where they interviewed a new hacker, or old hacker, than gave their hack a rating and a link to their thread.
I always read that part and skipped most of the rest.

Dont forgot the beta of XSE, it's awsome :P.
Hopefully all the newsletters will be as organised as this one :P.

EDIT: 4.5 days lost, let's summarize.

The issue 2 will be out within 2 weeks.

Some people from the creative team just ignored my requests, but I already forgave them and it's pretty old news. You will soon be able to experience better RHN!


Cheers!

So, what has been decided, Martin? It'll be a monthly release? I dont remember...

Well, keep it up, even if it's a solo work. I guess I'm more interested in reading it than helping... Blame my lazyness -_-

Just dropping by to say that I like how the first one looks.., and I'm excited to see the upcoming one...

Anywho, I hope you can get things according to your flavor, even if you do things solo...

It will be a monthly thing, I stated that before my posts were deleted due to that old database restore. And thank you, I will try to make things look and sound good.

If you want it, do it yourself and it will be in. You will be credited for it.

EDIT: Someone close this thread. From issue 2 higher, I want to keep things cleaner. Thank you ^^
