Hack Your ROMs for better experience and gameplay on PC

Edited by Raj, Nate Pepperell, Eng, Anonymous and 1 other

We all know you can turn your home PC into a game arcade with the use of emulators and ROMs. Here are some tips on how you can hack the ROM for better game play and user experience.


Hacking a ROM

Sure, you can use emulators to play non-native games on your PC, but did you know you can go beyond that? Hacking a game's ROM allows you to fiddle with all sorts of settings, including graphics and music, levels of the game, and all the little calculations that go into balancing characters. Those all require very different alterations from each other, but picking up the basics isn't as complicated as you might think. That said, it's helpful to figure out what you want to do before getting into modding territory.
