I love corrupting NES Roms

If it doesn't fit elsewhere, it should go here

So, I decided to corrupt a few bytes of data in some NES Roms and I got some pretty interesting results.

Who cares. And I can upload the corrupted roms if you want. I can also make corrupt other games if you want to see what happens to those. But you'll have to give me names and I can find them myself.

That's pretty f'd up, but some parts were pretty cool. It almost sounded like the music was supposed to sound like that in the first one.

There is no risk, nobody gives a shit about roms anymore. Well on older consoles.

This reminds me of when the batteries where close to running out on my NES clone, weird stuff like that would happen.

Why do you want me to upload these so badly?

Also I take requests so if you want to see a NES Rom corrupted of your choice, I'll corrupt and record and upload it.

Would you try to do my favorite NES game: Blaster Master? I would like to see how that gets screwed up :p

This gave me a crazy idea (unfortunatly i don't think i know enough to be able to make it realy myself). Using those javascript or whetever NES emulators that run inside a web page, you would show players randomly corrupted versions of the Mario ROM, and ask the players to rate the corrupted ROM when they're done playing; then when enough ROMs in a generation have received enough votes you pick the ones that got more positive votes and breed them (exchange bits between the versions) randomly and then randomly corrupt them again to make the new generation; who knows, maybe in a few generations we might have a brand new game that evolved out of corrupt ROMs!!!

You can't make a game out of corruption, only break it.

Radiation, among other things, has been playing a similar role in the evolution of life, it corrupts DNA; more often than not the result doesn't even get born, but given enough time one of those random corruptions will actually be beneficial.

It's the NES adaptation of an arcade game called "Kung Fu Master"

I corrupt them by getting the .nes file on my laptop then editing it in a hex editor, where the hex numbers show up, scroll down (do not edit the first 12 lines or the make wont run) and change some number so "00" and then see how you crapped up the game :D
