I came up with the thought that, why don't we do a site hack? I'm sure if we put all of our skills together we can come up with a impressive one, and get the site noticed as well. Now by hack we don't need to do a huge hack, maybe just a small Christmas (seems a little early for that :P) one or something. I'd like some input on this, so tell me what you think.

I like this Idea! I have a feeling the less-skilled hackers (like me) will want to wait for black magic though. I can't do anything with hyrule magic. Also, I might be able to help with publicity. Despite my crappy comp, I can successfully record ZSNES, so I might be able to get some publicity. (I only have about 10 subs though.)

We can talk on the IRC. And I am aware this is here I'm just waiting for some more feedback before I want to go all out on this.

Yes, I agree. Do a small hack together.

It doesn't have to take years or be huge, just something that is nice and sweet.

Have a small overworld and like 1 dungeon. Do something that is manageable. Have a goal that is reasonable and doable.

Do it!

That's a nice idea. I also think it would be smart to make an empty Zelda3 rom, which is not so easy to achieve. This could be a template for editing, making this site popular. For instance: the main reason why everyone fears Hyrule Magic is because it doesn't react well with Alttp, but with some modifications it performes a lot better. (Waiting for Black Magic is not a good idea, since it could be years before it is completed, but that program will be awesome to have).

If we can make all overworld areas loading normal green grass with no overlays, with the changed global overworld grid and some hex restructuring of the title and naming screen (so they don't always get bugged), people would see that HM can be very usefull. There should also be a debug method included (txt). Namely with a hex editor you can debug any bug, that HM makes (asuming the file has been modified like described). This kind of empty file can also have some new gfx already in, since inserting it can sometimes be a problem for a beginner.

I like.

Edit: And maybe all the dungeon rooms could be blank. (Other than links house. You move that bed one tile and the entire rom breaks. Sheesh.) Also, I recommend there still be a spot in the center with links house, because it's weird to put in manually. Also, the actual "X Button" map would be blank other than link's house.

Sounds like fun.

I'd love to help.

I have a working knowledge of Tiled, a tile editor, and have no problem drafting Overworld or dungeon areas. I have some stuff posted on DA just for show. They're just PNGs, nothing more.

If I can learn how to use the music editor in HM I'd love to add some music as well - I'm a Music Composition major, with a minor in Electrical/ Computer Engineering.

Hm... ok. Sounds like we should do it. I wonder if Seph would be interested?...

Also i'd like to know now who wants to hello and in which way. We can start planning after that.

I'd probably be the general "manager" over the hack and do any ASM stuff needed.

I totally agree to do a site hack. Again even if it is only 1 or 2 dungeons long and takes up a quarter of the original Zelda 3 overworld.

Everyone here can contribute something, ideas, graphics, ASM code, ect.

I will say this though, everything that is going to be made into the final game should be posted here and be available to give feedback on.

I'm not sure what I can do to help, since I have no skill with hyrule magic, or writing music, OR ASM. I have very minor graphic design skill, But I have a question. Do you have to make textures with YY-CHR? I can not make anything with YY-CHR. My only graphic design skill is in paint.net. If it requires YY-CHR, Then can I help you manage wiiqwerty? If not I'll just be an ideas guy. (And possible sketching, in the form of planning out how things will look and be designed in paint.net.)

We might be able to work something out with that Omen, you can copy and paste things from paint or something into YY-CHR, so it should work.

Yeah, are we doing this guys???

I say we make a small overworld then make one dungeon and that's it for our first hack. Short, but sweet. Something easy that we know that we can accomplish.
