Rules for adding arcade hacks?
« on: April 03, 2023, 07:39:53 AM »
What are the rules/guidelines for what kind of neogeo/pgm hacks are added to FBN?

The reason I'm asking is that HBMAME has a lot of old hacks for these systems and nobody knows what advantage they bring. Some are boss hacks, some are different button combos etc, but nobody really knows. I did receive some instructions in Chinese long ago but since I couldn't read them they were all deleted. Also, I seriously doubt anyone plays those games.

So I'm intending over the next few releases to rip out all this unknown stuff, and you guys are welcome to it if it fits your inclusion criteria. Otherwise it will be just gone.

I would be careful here, I've removed some hacks which seemed useless.. only to have to re-add them again. :)
