When posting a new ROM hack, it is required that you follow the guidelines outlined here.

RULES:

All threads must abide by the following restrictions:

Content Requirements
*When posting in the ROM Hacks section we ask that you include at least 4 screenshots showing progress on your project. Alternatively, 4 completed maps may be posted.

*1 video showing significant gameplay features and additions may be used instead of the 4 screenshots. The video alternative can also be used if your hack is a sound-only hack and does not show any graphical changes. If you are unable to produce this, your project belongs in the Drawing Board.

  • No links to forums, unless they are affiliates of Silph Co., owned by yourself, or you have acquired permission by a moderator
  • No insulting other members or their hacks
  • Must have an introduction
  • Must have at least 4 screenshots showing significant progress on your hack
  • If you would like to create a mature hack, such as Koolboyman's Fukemon, please make sure to make a clearly visible warning (such as "Mature") in both your hack's title and in its thread
  • No fake hacks or fake screenshots, no images from Google, you know
  • No fan games! This forum is for hacks- You should check out Relic Castle Forums for fangames!
  • If you used tiles, maps, logos, programs, etc. to create your hack, GIVE CREDIT!

For thread commenters:

  • No SPAM (Stupid Pointless Annoying Messages)
  • Again, no insulting other members or their hacks
  • Don't bother others to become a beta tester or badger them for release dates- they will release it on their own time
  • If you have questions about the hack, don't fret to send a VM/PM or leave a comment on the thread
  • No insulting other members or hacks- be a fair critic
  • Comments must be constructive and relate to specific points of the hack- posts like "Nice hack" will be deleted
  • Please do not revive threads if the creator of the featured ROM hack has not been active for one year or longer (unless you are the creator) as the hacks that are possibly dead are starting to mix with newer ones, making the site look cluttered. (If you want to see how long it has been since the creator was active, go to their profile page by clicking on their username and selecting "View Public Profile").

Lastly, here are a few features for the ROM hacks sections that you may have questions about:

Single & Double Prefixes
The primary selectable prefixes are for the platform your base ROM is using. We have the common ones listed for use, and if your base is not listed, then use the Other prefix. If there is high demand for more platforms, we will add them.
