NSMB2 hacking has become quite popular in the past week. I was looking through the forums of kuribo64 and found multiple projects already in development. Most of these projects are asking for help from people. Commonly a C++ programmer. I have been learning C++ for a while now and I know how to use pointers, classes, functions/methods, etc. I really want to help out with these projects in development but two things stand in my way. I don't think I am at the skill level yet to professionally program in C++ and even if I was what would I need to know in order to help out. What I mean is API's and libraries. So as always I come with a question. As a C++ programmer on a team that is developing an NSMB2 hack, what would I need to know about C++? As in tools I would have to be familiar with to help develop.

know how it actually works, first. using c++ skills with no information how the game works is bleh.

think about sprite / class constructors, vtables, inheritance, and virtual functions.

What do you mean? Understanding memory management or something like that?

You couldn't just write in c++ right away. You'd need to reverse the game in assembly first and make some sort of template. You also need to be able to patch the code somehow.

NSMB DS would be a good reference. See how that game handles things (look through the header files and code examples).

Sounds cool. Were can I find those code examples and header files?
