Actually, yours was one I did get and overlooked- sorry about that. I recieved it along with like 4 other PMs at the time, and when that happens I sometimes forget to respond to some.
But, to me, your idea seems quite legit. Let me run it by colcolstyles and see his opinion on it- but I think it's pretty solid :) I'll get back to you soon (I won't forget to get back to you this time, haha :D)
Hmm, you've a good point there. Technically YOU would be making the game, and so it wouldn't really fall under copyright. At least I would assume it wouldn't- but, if you are planning to do the likes of this, I'd be checking with the Higher Staff just to be sure. I reckon it'd be okay, but to be honest I'm not too familiar with homebrew and stuff, and where it would lie in terms of rules/laws.
I see what you mean though, and by that logic it should be okay, but if you plan on doing it I recommend contacting a Higher Staff member about it first.
You know, I've pondered this question myself a couple of times. To be honest, I'm not entirely sure what the correct answer is. Because you're developing a game, it should belong in Game Development but because you play the game on an emulator, it also belongs in Emulation. It's a paradox, really. Seeing how each section has its own crowd of people, if I were you I would put the thread wherever you think the right crowd would see it.
edit: I just read giradialkia's VM to you and I'd like to point out that the rules prohibit linking to commercial ROMs. Posting a ROM that you, yourself, made is perfectly OK, in my mind.
edit2: I just read your response to giradialkia's VM and yes, it should be fine. :D
You didn't ask me this, but I wanted to give my input anyway:
hi there! how are you doing?
I was randomly wondering about something and have a doubt: if one were to make a Game Boy game from scratch (game development, not ROM hacking), do you think it would go in Emu/ROM Hacking section (where gameboy programming belongs) or in Game Development section (where games are developed "from scratch")?
So one would be making a game from scratch- thus, it'd fit in Games Development. BUT, it's technically be a ROM, and seeing as you'd be the only one who has the original ROM, you'd have a hard time distributing it here, as ROM linking is against the rules in every area of the forum, as I'm sure you're aware.
Btw, I already have a concept for my hack. Still ASM drive me crazy. I try editing the intro to make it load a trainer sprite instead of the marill sprite. I've found the offset of Oak ASM script, but somewhat could not find the marill one... Odd...
You know, IIMarckus going to rearrange the whole Skeetendo board?
I don't know what he think, but tutorial section would be useful if he make it. Megamap really make things more confusing with the map arrange by mapbank and the backward pointer in the connection data
