I would slap my self several times and say something like "DAMN YOU'RE SO GOOD".
I actually liked failing a couple of hacks, cause when I look back on some of them now they were pretty ridiculous and not to mention some of the features that I wanted were beyond my knowledge. I'm going to look at this post tomorrow or so and say the same thing but w/e. Well the bolder reason is because I got better as I gave up on the hopeless stuff. Oh, I'd also backup my hack thus saving me months of wasted time ;)

I'd tell myself to keep a few back-up copies and to not replace all of the back-ups -.-
The consequences... were depressing...

I'd tell myself to stop procrastinating and get down to hacking. At the end everything seems to be easier when u just stop thinking and dive into it. You figure things out on the way and u get that awesome feeling when u do manage to figure something out urself for example scripting. I spent too much time trying to find some1 to help me script and teach me how to script instead i shud of just tried an error it wasn't hard at all. Shout out to diegoisawesome he was the key that unlocked my scripting brain. but yeah stop wasting time and just get into it.

I would teach my confused self how to do scripting. So then I wouldn't be so confused with what to do all the time!

I would tell my past self to have more patience, that I/he wasn't gonna get everything in a weekend, that I/he shouldn't give up at the first mistake.

Sadly to this date I still haven't learned that lesson.

Disclaimer: English is not my native language.
I'd appreciate any corrections on my grammar. (;

If I could turn back time, I wouldn't teach the "past" me anything, because the past me had motivation. Motivation to do and to try, no matter how many times I failed. In my opinion, if you want to progress, you're going to have to stumble on a few pebbles. That guy was enthusiastic, he was.

Tips:
-Make a basic outline of the game's story
-Get a small testing group. Could be online people or people from school. It'll also help to make a FreeWebs website or even your own domain to organize your stuff better.
-Learn how to count in hex. You don't have to know how to translate, just know how to do very basic addition and subtraction with hex numbers.
ex. 10 - 1 = F
-Discover Diegoisawesome's XSE Tutorial and Seth's XSE Tutorial. Seth has a list of used flags that I refer to a lot. Diegoisawesome basically describes every single command. You don't need to memorize everything before making your game, just know how to start a script, compile a script, etc. Knowing how to use flags is great too.
-NEVER USE PERSON ID'S IN THE 2000'S RANGE. ONLY USE THEM IN THE 1000'S AND 4000'S RANGE. YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE TO IMAGINE THEY'RE IN HEX, JUST USE THEM LIKE NORMAL NUMBERS BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT GOING TO USE A THOUSAND FLAGS IN ONE GAME. (Sprites will reappear if you use flags in 2000's range if you setflag 0x[person id] after while)
-Know your limits when music hacking. For example, some tracks can't have music that's too long or have too many instruments.
