Before we go any further, I must clarify that I am not making this up.
I recently received an interesting message on Myspace from one Cory Holtz, a male actor and model. His question dealt with Legendary Wings. Specifically, he's looking for someone to hack the game for him:
I am so happy to see that hacking is at it's best with you guy. I am looking to hire someone for a freelance gig to hack and edit one of my favorite childhood NES games "Legendary Wings". It's a vertical shooting game and should be fairly easy to program. I'm just a pro at the game and would love a more difficult version, more guns, and extra levels. Please let me know if you would be interested with this freelance gig.
Can't wait to hear from you!
Not being a ROM hacker of any sort (although I do write about them), I asked him if I could post his message on VC&G. In a typical Holtzian manner, he replied:
Yes Please put the notice up! It would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for the help. Cant wait to play with you!
So there you have it. If anyone out there is up for it, feel free to post a comment below or send me an email. Cory will probably be checking the comments, but if you email me, I'll pass on the message.
Update: 02/11/2009 — Cory just emailed me today and said that he found someone to hack Legendary Wings for him. He told me that he'd send me the result, so we'll see what happens.
