Re: We need a better name for "Adventure Games."

As someone who came from a certain community I'd rather nothing would change. It's just too late. Come to think of this, if we're always serious about all this we are going nowhere. RPG is an even more egregious genre. In how many games (computer games, at least) are you not assuming a role of someo...

Re: Hello, I'm back, still need assistences

In either case, they're copy, not move. Example 1: The code: LDA #5 STA mem1 where mem1 is a label corresponding to a certain memory location, is equivalent to, in higher level language terms: A = 5 mem1 = A Which after storing the value of A (5) into mem1, A still carries the value 5, so STA just c...

Re: Terminator, MOS 6502 and Ion Maiden

I don't know whether there are assemblers that accept an ! like this.
Maybe it was an intentional troll move (or a Genius Bonus) to offer the code listing with something off, that people couldn't get it to work directly unless they figured out they need to fix something first?

Re: Hello, I'm back, still need assistences

My advice is to read some of the tutorials about programming in 6502 assembly to improve your understanding on the subject, such as those available from 6502.org. Also, have a reference to the instructions ready at all time (such as this one linked to by the NESDEV wiki) so you may look up the detai...

I don't know. Maybe this is ripped from a 65816 programme listing instead?

Re: Hello, I'm back, still need assistences

Re-read the previous post from 2 years ago. I'm guessing "CLC" is used to "Erase all the number the Register A, X, and Y is carrying."? No. The CLC (Clear Carry) clears the Carry flag . The "Carry" here means the number carried to the next place when doing arithmetic operations such as addition and...

Re: Music Playback Very Slow

Haven't checked the ROM, but maybe somehow your game is run in 50Hz PAL mode (like because of header settings) so the music are slower?

Edit:
Hmmm Nestopia reported that it's NTSC. Don't know about it then.

Re: Has anyone tried to obtain an "Official Seal" from Nintendo for their game?

When Hudson asked Nintendo to accept them as a 3rd party developer (Hudson grew interest in the system after being contracted to produce the 1st party Family Basic) Nintendo had no plan for allowing 3rd party published games (actually they didn't even think of that). The system wasn't fully establis...

Re: Alternatives to warp pipes

The Famicom NES version of Strider used pipes (or whatever name you'd call them) too.

The image was working for me if I just paste the url in a new browser tab though.

Or, try PMing the author of the game yourself, though he wasn't active here for a year now.

...some Chinese hobbits... I know it's just an innocent typo (should be hobbyists I guess) but I couldn't help laughing while reading this. Sorry about that. :oops: I am Chinese, so maybe I am also a hobbit. Maybe not. :roll: This is quite interesting. I never knew people made Famicom/NES based clo...

Re: Designing a homebrew directory

I remember the PSP emulator PPSSPP has the feature in downloading homebrew directly, which can be handy for honest people who don't pirate games people using a mobile phone to play the games. Maybe we can take that as a reference.
