Eh? What's wrong with modifying roms? If it improves the game in some way(s) then I don't see a problem at all. Granted it might be illegal in your country, but that doesn't make it morally wrong, and some illegal things shouldn't be illegal, just like some legal things shouldn't be legal.
Modifying roms was perfectly legal in England (where I live) in the 1980s, and lots of people used to hack the games for infinite lives or other cheats, plus looking through a rom was a great way to help learn how to write working and efficient code (back then, almost every good game was written in pure machine code, as anything else was too slow on an 8-bit machine). Now it might be illegal, but only because the government puts the desires of rich companies above the rights of the paying customer. Looking through a game's code is not morally wrong in any way, and if you improve or alter the code in some way, then as long as you don't resell the game, then you're not harming the company who wrote the game, so where is the harm in altering a rom's code?
And Goldeneye X is a great modification. Granted it won't appeal to many people, since to most gamers the N64 is too old to bother with, but a few of us still love and play on the N64, and regard Goldeneye and Perfect Dark as endlessly replayable classics, and for us Goldeneye is fantasic.
And if you do regard modded roms as bad, then I assume you're against fan-made translations of popular games? If so, why?
