I'm going to say something that I've said before (I think). If you want to hack a game, then hack it, no one's stopping you. D/P is wide open, not even a checksum. Instead of wondering WHY it's not hacked, go for it and hack it.
I've never said that I wanted to do it. I don't hack anymore. I just don't understand the lack of progress.
The topic is about people's thougths on why this is not happening and THE FUTURE OF HACKING as the title says.
