We here at Data Crystal are all about hacking ROMs. If you're unfamiliar with the subject, take a look at our Introduction to Hacking.
Prior to the founding of Data Crystal, the ROM hacking community was largely decentralized. Information on any one game would be buried in nested folders on forgotten websites. Hackers toying with games lacking sufficient fanbase would have nowhere to put their findings, and as such, the ROM hacking community as a whole could not grow. Data Crystal is now available to all hackers as a community to share information. If you have the greatest or the smallest finding about whatever game you like to hack, add it to the site. As the community grows, Data Crystal will become the repository of all known hacking information.
Because the wiki is still in its infancy, decisions are being made regarding conventions and the direction of the site. These discussions have been categorized as Community Discussions, and your input is welcome.
|July has been declared Sega Mega Drive Month! The Sega Genesis/Mega Drive is a powerful system that's gotten little love in the ROM hacking community. Help make Sega Mega Drive (GEN) the Mega category it should be!|
