Have you had any luck with Hack-o-matic II yet? If you scroll down the screen after opening a bin/rom file, you'll eventually find the game graphics that you can change. Play around with that first. When you're ready, search through the forums for tutorials. Nukey and others here are very helpful but make sure you do some reading first. When you're ready, you can try the assembly tutorials, but it doesn't happen overnight. Anyways, that's how I got started.
I've been fascinated with hacking for the longest time, but all the programs I've seen are far too complicated to use. Is there some kind of tutorial someone can point me to (or someone who'd be willing to assist me in learning?)

I followed the tutorial and learned how to hack the gun in Space Invaders into a smiley face (working on a few variations myself) but my biggest thing is learning how to figure out what each section represents. Is there an easy way to learn how to figure it out?

So basically using a little trial and error, eh? Is there a good emulator to use with it? I use Z26, but I wasn't sure if there was a preference among hackers. Also, would it be a good idea to keep paper and pen(cil) handy to take notes of different addresses?

You can eventually change just about anything with Hack-O-Matic alone. Using disassemblys is easier once you understand them.

Just curious can you change the colors of sprites with hack o matic? I've looked everywhere on how to do this without learning assembly code. I do know a bit of binary and hexidecimal and the basic colors in hex and such.
