Re: I've been thinking, AND ... here's what happened (or not

When I'm debugging embedded situations, the order I do things, from "easier to figure out what's going on" to "more guaranteed to work", is: * Use a debugging simulator * Use a captive debugger * LED debugging * LED debugging and a logic analyzer The SNES does have a very small number of GPIO pins,...

Re: I've been thinking, AND ... here's what happened (or not

Thank you all (again, esp. koitsu). What you guys all don't seem to realize though (good on you though, as working my way through the hell of a mess of the original SNES PowerPak firmware's code has been, and still is, a PITA, as opposed to my little thread here) is that CardCheckError isn't just an...

Re: I've been thinking, AND ... here's what happened (or not

Thank you all, especially koitsu, for your invaluable feedback! :) But, according to the Furry saying™, "Sometimes an octopus sees more than a primate's visual field can cover," after days and days of reflecting the matter I still don't get what's happening, and why AND #1/CMP #1/BEQ SOMEWHERE in th...

I've been thinking, AND ... here's what happened (or not)

Okay, so this has been driving me nuts for days. :? Though I'm still convinced it's just me, myself and/or I (it always has, so it's got to be this time, too!), I thought I'd seek professional help before I involuntarily zero out, you know, the zero page. :mrgreen: Consider this bit of SNES-65816, n...

Re: Please help me identify this SMD component :-)

My guess would be unmarked diode... https://i.stack.imgur.com/seNT9.jpg Did you try measuring across the intact one on the diode setting on the multimeter? Yes, meter read 0.6 V on either polarity which I found was odd. :? (BTW, the components in your pic are all capacitors not diodes. :wink: ) The...

Pretty sure it was, before I wrecked it. :?

Well it's obviously not a zero-Ohm bridge either. :lol:

Seriously, could it possibly be an inductor?

Please help me identify this SMD component :-)

So while doing a recap on my PAL (Edit: top-loading ) front-loading NES, I accidentally knocked off and killed a tiny, unidentified SMD component from within the AV/RF/power box: http://www.manuloewe.de/other/mysterious_SMD_part.jpg There were two of those in my PAL Alps AV/RF/power box, but no exte...

Re: Up-to-date SNES assembler binaries

Haven't messed with snescom for a while, but after a quick test I can confirm that my Win binaries don't work on Win 10 at all either. Then again, I haven't used my Windows installation for ages, as there was no need to do so. Therefore, and because snescom is widely known to suck anyway, I hereby p...

Re: Finally on MSU1: Chrono Trigger with anime intro ;-)

Sorry again. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy to see other people, like yourself, picking up where I left off. After all, that's why I put the code up on GitHub etc. Maybe it's just the fact that for me personally, this project has yielded nothing but trouble and annoyance. I'm really sick of it. *unsu...

Re: Finally on MSU1: Chrono Trigger with anime intro ;-)

Combined with the animation sequences and no load delays, it's certainly the definitive version of the game. Uhm, yeah. I agree it is. Or that it would be, if (i.e., IF!) this project had the aim of implementing "animation sequences" (note the plural here). But it hasn't, and never has. Instead, it...

Re: SNES PowerPak

As of the latest build, you can jump to the next/previous SPC file with R/L (among other stuff). It's been tested thoroughly and is confirmed working well, so don't hesitate to download and install the update. :)

Re: SD2SNES, sending rom over USB?

I covered this in: I won't get into an explanation of how to change the file permissions on a device if you *really need* be able to do this as a non-root user (devfs or systemd on Linux is responsible for that). ...but now I'm apparently having to do exactly that. No. Again, check out ucon64. Ther...

Re: SD2SNES, sending rom over USB?

A better option than becoming root would be to either add yourself to the "dialout" group (at least that's what it's called on debian, you can look at the /dev/ttyACM* node to find out what group owns it), or to change the permissions on the /dev/ttyACM* node so that you can access it as an unprivi...
