Maybe I'm naive, but I'm convinced that somewhere there's a game that can easily have it's aspects edited through preexisting, user-friendly, utilities that work with no problems on modern operating systems (Vista/7). That means level layout, graphics, music, dialog, etc. I've been interested in hacking Mega Man, but I can't find any utilities. I've been interested in hacking Pokemon, but the utilities don't work in most cases. And I've of course been interested in hacking Sonic, but it's just overall too confusing for me. Maybe I'm dumb/lazy/blind. I dunno. But if anyone who has ever been in the same situation as me has had some success, please share your happy news and how you got to it here.
