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.

The official IRC chat room of Data Crystal is #datacrystal on irc.dynastynet.net.

June has been declared ROM Hackers' Month!!! Please give your love to the ROM hackers who created your favorite ROM hacks by providing extra information either about them or the games that they have designed over the years.

For legal reasons, we do not host roms or emulators on Data Crystal, nor do we provide links to ROMs.
