Yes, actually. I first joined because some of my tiles in a hack weren't changing no matter how I did in A-Map. That, or I was trying to get rid of the part where Bill takes you to the Sevii Islands and didn't know how to work map scripts.

I decided to stick around for ROM hacking too, because there's no other place where I can talk about ROM hacking to this extent.

A mix of reasons, but yes, ROM hacking did play a part.

I actually struggled with the idea of registering. I already had everything I needed for Rom hacking from Wah, and I usally like to figure things out on my own. But after a while of searching the forum I released there were so many hackers that were better then me, that it would probably be beneficial if I joined, that way I could learn from a couple of them.

I created my account because I love Pokemon! :D I did end up finding the ROM hacking section, and it did become the sole reason I kept coming here for quite a while!

It seems like a lot of people made their accounts for this reason, as did I. I am a big fan of Pokemon, but I guess the hacking is the only part I am into at the moment. Although I love nostalgia, I fell like this community has sucked me in to Pokemon to a whole new level - even if I am not too vocal about it

Like most people that come here, the reason I joined up in the first place... was indeed to begin ROM hacking. But just think, when I first joined... I never even posted a thread anywhere on the forum... it was so long ago... waaaaay back to January 2008. My only purpose of joining at that time was to download ROM hacking tools, when I first noticed those tools... I noticed that this was the same forum that Carlos (aka Zel) showcased his ROM hack of FireRed called "Pokémon ShinyGold", it was a remake of Pokémon Gold.

You may have thought that I would've introduced myself and created my first thread upon joining, right? Wrong! I never even posted anywhere on the forum until April 1st, 2008, 'cause I wasn't open at that stage. It was only later in the year that I gradually opened up, 'cause I made new friends here on the forum.

So yeah, I might actually be working on a ROM hack, but it's very early... and I've only just inserted a few tiles. xD

I did indeed create my account only for the purpose of ROM hacking, so the answer to that is "yes". xD

Researching the NDS ROMs...

sure does feel like a brand new adventure!

I'm really looking forward to learning how to understand what the hex values mean and how to create programs using Microsoft Visual Studio!

Always focus on the present, best thing to do! Never look back into the past and never worry about anything bad of the future!

When I first joined, it was to download romhacks like Pokémon ShinyGold. I joined in 2009, didn't make any active efforts until 2011 and now I'll make a rom hack.

For the most part I definitely joined mainly for the hacking part of the community, however I still enjoy the franchise (well only the games and the old TCG) so discussion on the franchise interests me as well. You'll probably see most of my posts here though since I love hacking. <3

Yes, I absolutely love ROM hacking, in fact I'm working on one, although i need some help with making battle sprites, as i suck at pixel editing. If anyone would like to partner with me i will give them credit.

I joined after mooching off the forum's tutorials for a while, and still not finding the little simple answers I needed. The Simple answers thread has been a huge help.

Yes and no, when I was on youtube I looked at pokemon games I never seen, like Chaos Black. And I decided to play pokemon hacks,so I joined here to download stuff, I was twelve back then and I asked my parents for me to join, my dad thought it costed money so he said no, then I asked my mom and she said yes (I was very sneaky xD). Anyway, I played some hacks and then I decided to make one (which is still a work in progress).

TL/DR (Well not that long but still...): Yes and no. No because I first joined to play hacks then to make one and yes because playing hacks does have three sections (where all of them are showcased) which is in the rom hacking area.

I just joined recently for the sole purpose of hacking and playing other people's hacks, I've recently started hacking fire red which I'm sure almost everyone starts with and I'm having a blast

Yes, I did. 100% solely because of it. When I first came to PC, it was to see the Ruby Destiny Triology and Shiny Gold, and then I did some loitering around in the Showcase section and saw that half the hacks have download links in attachments. So I made an account to download the latest versions of RD and SG and tried others as well. 2 months after I came back because I was directed here for tuts on how to ROM hack and ROM Hacking tools. I didn't visit many bright tuts till later on unfortunately, so I learnt everything the hard way. Then I was an upcoming GBA ROM Hacker then suddenly it started moving out of the scene, an year after the release of Black and White. DS hacking became more prominent, not to mention RMXP games. So I lost interest mostly and only peeped in when I was bored. I went through a few more hacks one day and saw awesome graphics and thought, hey, why don't I become a spriter? So I found many tuts over the internet and soon started my Sprite Shop. Now that I'm Spriter Supreme, I thought I'd get back to Hacking and that was just yesterday.
