    I choked on my cereal while reading this, since I have knwon Hyperhacker very well for years. What it means is you have to open the ROM in a hex editor and change the address it is talking about. If you are a ROM hacker like us, it's not a problem at all.

    It looks like he described it as editing the active ASM while running, but it can be translated to be a hex edit modification.

    Edit: I'll give it a shot.

    Edit2: Couldn't get my Renegade working with my PJ64, so no dice.

    Hyperhacker was refering to ROM hacks to improve a game's speed, no urgent need for Mario 64 ,since currently it is running full speed with sound at frameskip 2, though you may experience a few slight slowdowns throughout the game.

    @sonicandtails: Do you have any knowledge about speedhacks for the N64? Because Daedalus coders are looking into the possibility of implementing speedhacks into daedalus, and any help would be much appreciated.

    P.S: If you could get Hyperhacker to go deeper into the subject he posted in Strmnnrmn' blog, please tell him to post any additional info in: www.daedalux64.com .Again thanks for your time.

    Yeah I saw his thread, it has some good information, and a nice tutorial, I still want to learn more about speedhacks though, but it still has some good information nonetheless.

    I'm assuming it's refering to altering the instructions that the ROM is bound to follow in order to make it go faster, so I'd say it's refering to ROM, but I'm not too sure so don't quote me on that.
