Re: Why don't we have a SNES Game Jam?

Someone should make some sort of announcement in the SNES Discord. Which one? I'm in Kaydus' SNESDev Discord. We should also do it after March 1, as that's the deadline for the current NES comp. We don't want to overlap the dates, as some of the participants may be the same. Yeah, though some of th...

Re: Why don't we have a SNES Game Jam?

I would probably take part, and it probably would pull random folks from elsewhere too. It's just a matter of someone organizing, for which there hasn't been much volunteering. I would happily want to collaborate with you or Dash8m8 for the jam. When I said this, I meant collaborating with the orga...

Re: Why don't we have a SNES Game Jam?

lfg.jpg Regarding limitations, I feel that maybe, for a first event, it would be better to avoid any technical limitations / restrictions. Simply coming up a with "theme" so all the entries are somewhat linked together feels better to me (but this is only my personal opinion of course). What do you...

Re: Why don't we have a SNES Game Jam?

Is this a dream? Or is it WarioWare ? You see, in WarioWare, each segment is at best a few seconds long. In this game, these entire sections can last up to half an hour. WarioWare is a minigame game. I was just demonstrating that the JRPG concept would probably end up like a minigame game anyway du...

Re: problemkaputt.de is gone

I use Neocities.

Its free plan is limited, but for static websites like yours, it's pretty fine.

Re: Why don't we have a SNES Game Jam?

I think Olddb meant nametable data (SC data), not the actual pattern data. Each SC entry is 16-bit in most (all? I forgot) modes, and this could affect level map data in ROM I guess. This is what I meant. Oh lol. Guess at that point, you're going to have to make algorithms to generate tilemaps from...

Re: Why don't we have a SNES Game Jam?

HiROM and LoROM can both do 4MB. We will have to decide which to use, though. I know. I was just saying the minimum size the ROM of an Action 53 compilation of 32768 bytes games can be. Keep in mind SNES games tile data is 16bits and there are 3 possible planes to fill. Also, graphics take more rom...

Re: Why don't we have a SNES Game Jam?

We could do something like the nes dev comp but for the SNES. Make a collection of mini-games. Each entry could have a size restriction, let's say 256k or 512k. How about 64k (HiROM) or 32k(LoROM)? That'd be a big challenge, but it means an Action 53 for SNES would be possible. 32768*53 = 1736704, ...

Re: Why don't we have a SNES Game Jam?

I've been thinking about this since the N64 game jam a month ago or so. The n64 is extremely niche in terms of homebrew, yet it got a fair amount of applicants anyways. Why don't we do something similar? It would both bring the community together and invite new people into the SNES homebrew scene. ...

Re: Good PS1 Homebrew

I remember there was the Roll Boss Rush homebrew game, but that's about it. It seems our definitions of 'good' are not congruent with each other. uwu Saw a video of the gameplay. Didn't like it. Not really into boss rush games, and I'm definitely not into half the game's fullscreen animations. Well...

Re: Good PS1 Homebrew

There isn't much. OrionSoft sells a couple, those aren't freely available. The older Net Yaroze games aren't exactly homebrew, but close enough. A pain to develop for, and an inability to distribute games that run on unmodified consoles -> not much interest. Don't those Net Yaroze games require a N...

Good PS1 Homebrew

I have just installed UniROM v8.0.d and flashed it to my PS1 GameShark cartridge. I've looked in the PSX-Place and I could find very little PS1 homebrew. Can anyone point me to some more cool PS1 homebrew games that I can burn (to a CD-R)? I am not looking for emulators, as I prefer to play games on...

Re: Super Mario Bros.: Why all the floating money?

Some scenes in some games use floating coins as a design tool to lead players to an intended path Why a coin, though? Why not a sack of money? Why not a safe? Why not gold bars? Some games use the latter 3, like Aimusori using gold bars . Heck, what about using a credit/debit/ATM card? Earthbound u...
