Help getting started
The Getting Started section of our F.A.Q. contains general information about SMW hacking, ROMs and emulation. In order to play a hack from our hacks section, you will need to know how to use BPS patches. If you ever want to create your own hack, be sure to read all the F.A.Q. sections. They contain lots of helpful information! You should also check out our tutorials section where you will find tutorials to help you with many different aspects of SMW hacking.
