I know MetalSlime warned against watching his "video diary", but I took a quick look. Definitely something wrong with him. He laughed after every sentence. Reminds me of the Joker. Very weird guy right there.

ASM is really fun though, you will not regret learning it. You will have freedom like you never had in any other language, and will be able to make optimizations that are impossible with anything else. And you will learn a lot about computer architecture. This is very true. One of the pitfalls of 6...

For the true NES development experience, you'll need to learn 6502 assembly. There are various assemblers to choose from. They are listed on the nesdev main page. I suggest you pickup a good 6502 assembly book and start reading. You can find them pretty cheap on amazon. Also, read the "Nintendo Ente...

This site's been here since '97? Holy crap, I guess I had no idea. I suppose I thought it started around 2004. Is that just when the forum started? September 19th 2004 is the earliest join date in the memberlist. There was a completely different forum system before this one. They can be found here .

I used the Win32 client (Q's) and assigned parallel Port to LPT1 and Address to DC80(in client->options). Worked like a charm.

The only way I was able to get my copynes to work (for windows xp) was to buy a PCI parallel card. A NetMos 9805, I believe. None of my machines on board parallel ports work with copynes.

Tokumaru, you should definitely learn to be confident to yourself. There is nothing hard in cutting 8 traces and soldering 8 resistors, nor there is any reason to do it wrong. It's just that this is not what I do! I'm a software guy, not very used to fixing/modding hardware! =) And the PowerPak is ...

So is this resistor a 100% fix or is the gfx bug still visible but less frequent? Is there any side issues with the resistor fix, i.e. some other issues might appear? Just want to know if it's worth doing this fix on my cart :) I installed the resistors myself and haven't had any graphical issues s...

I, like most people on the forum, will use the powerpak for both gaming and my own code. As Tokumaru said, it will be so much faster for development testing. Plus, no more worrying about some of those less than reliable prom burners :) The thought of having hundreds of NES games on 1 carts is just e...

Actually, I'm looking forward to seeing what you put in the manual. Didn't I read somewhere that you went to the NWC??

I haven't heard anything from bunnyboy since last week. Hopefully everything is going OK. I wonder what is holding up the release of the CF based PowerPak. Maybe he is building a game compatibility chart? Maybe there was a design bug? Bunnyboy said he is waiting on the manuals (the artist is sick)....

I agree. The red is very appealing! Perhaps, at some point, we will see a gold Zelda style shell for the pak. :D

No problem there. I already have the money set aside :wink:

Well if this has become the official "waiting list", sign me up too! ... assuming Samus Parker doesn't chew on any of the parts :D
