Tip: Test your levels as all forms of Mario that can access it (such as different powerups in your hack, or Yoshi).

Are you secretive about hacking, or do you tell everyone?

For me, I call it "programming", which, I mainly dissect file formats and do other minor stuff that requires writing programs, so that's partially true. Not much else to say other than that.

How about the rest of SMWCentral?
 
It's been a major hobby of mine for like 6 years so I'm not shy about it. I usually refrain from using the term "hacking" and call it "modding" instead when first talking to people about it, though.

Yes and no.
Half the reason I'm secretive is because I have nothing to show; I'm horrible for procrastinating, and as a result I have yet to have a project take of into a full blown hack.

<DeputyBS> I knew it

not really, but i'm not super proud and open about it either

besides i haven't really hacked in months lol
Not really. I used to do that before due to my family being strongly against it, but now they don't care as much as they did back then. Not to mention that it's been a hobby of mine for seven years straight, and I haven't done any specific levels as of lately though.
I say I hack and that i'm a hacker just to see the person's reaction, but then i tell them it's just romhacking and explain it.
Not really, tho it doesn't casually come up in conversation too often. AFAIK anyone IRL who knows about it hasn't come out to be strictly against it. I haven't seen any reason to go out of my way to keep it a secret.

I tell people that I hack, and I'm not shy to tell people.
I just tell them that i am hacking SMW, and eventually telling them what it is about, incase they are mistaking me with being a actual hacker.

--------------------
No not really. I love hacking so I'm okay if people know about it.

I don't hide it, but I don't really talk about it either since most of the people I know don't play or care about video-games, so I don't think they'd be interested in hearing me talking about it. I have a few gamer friends and I sometimes bring up the topic with them.
I tell most of my Mario fan friends about it. xD

It depends on what happens. If people ask me, then I'd probably be happy to tell them. If they don't ask, then I don't tell.

This.

Also, I could give seven fucks if people think negatively upon hearing the word, "hacker". It's not like people I know irl would put "actual hacking" past me anyway.

Because I have a double personality.... they always consider me to be a non-gaming people.

Because downloading a ROM is illegal?
Probably not. I've seen a few cases in which a user's family was against SMW hacking because they see it as a counterproductive means of using time.

Totally, that's why I don't tell it to anyone, except you guys #tb{:p}
But I don't think so, though... don't argue, please.
