Re: Kaite Tsukutte Asoberu: Dezaemon and Dezaemon Plus

I think I remember I've been looking for these before, but I don't seem to have them so I'm grateful to finally get them. Thanks!

Re: 3DS reverse engineering

MCU[18h-1Bh] - MCU Interrupt Mask, bit0-31 (0=Enable, 1=Disable) (R/W) ... 4 Wifi switch button ;uh, WHAT "switch button" ??? On the right edge of the old 3DS, but it's supposedly missing on the New 3DS (wifi can only be turned off in the home menu). It's the same type of momentary slide switch as ...

Re: God Mode No Holes No Timer No Damage SMB Hack

By just removing the timer, you make it possible to softlock the game in several places, including when jumping over the flag and running too far. It's tough being an immortal god. I remember once in a castle level where I jumped on the wired lifts and got up above the ceiling and ran all the way up...

I agree, videos explaining things that could be explained in text much faster, takes too much of your time.

Re: Differences of SPCPlayer and SPC7000

SPC player sounds like it's a player of SPC files and probably not needed.

Re: Poll: How would you prefer a first-person shooter on the NES to look like?

Although I would probably need to test a demo to make a good judgement, I spontaneously think that performance is important in this case, no matter if it's an action game or a dungeon crawler. More so in an action game, but also in a dungeon crawler it's important to not loose orientation which is e...

Re: Dungeon Crawler

Would a dungeon crawler style game (think Binding of Isaac) be possible on the NES. Obviously the style is in the same family as say a top down RPG, but I can't recall ever seeing a dungeon crawler on the NES or similar consoles. Random generation and the arcade-like ability to keep going for as lo...

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

Yes and I read somewhere that the earlier and biggest 3rd party developers like Hudson, Konami, Capcom, Namco and Sunsoft were allowed to produce their own Famicom cartridges even after Nintendo started to monopolize cartridge production (the Disk System was an exception). But this doesn't mean Nint...

Re: Metatile issues...

The PC Engine is a 65x system and not that different from NES and SNES hardware-wise (I think it's a good middle ground that fills in a gap between the two), but yeah working on both Mesen and Mesen-S is probably already a lot of work. I should say it like this: I wish the PC Engine had an emulator ...

Re: DSi unlaunch (bootcode exploit)

Well it would still be interesting to know if the stock firmware initializes it, if there is a good reason not to, and if rogue homebrew can initialize it by itself or not.

Re: Metatile issues...

I dl'd Mesen, and I like it already! Thanks! At least I don't have to worry about dl ing a certain version of an emulator (that's at YOU, Mr. FCE Ultra X). Also, I like how things are a LOT more visual! Can't wait to actually get proper use out of this! Going from Mednafen, which although is quite ...

Re: DSi unlaunch (bootcode exploit)

Yeah I just meant that the user should have control over the wifi like on the Old 3DS where there is a hardware (I think?) switch, to prevent accidental wifi access (by software or user error) whenever it's not wanted. But if the wifi switch is all software and the games have full access to it, that...

Re: Using Leaked Nintendo Source Code Poses Serious Legal Risk to Emulators [link]

I was talking about dumping software like GC/Wii DSP ROMs or the NAND memory in the Wii which Dolphin uses, not Verilog. That about Verilog was the Verilog for the GPU (which the leak didn't contain) for a hypothetical hardware clone that needs it. An emulator wouldn't even be written in Verilog in ...

Re: Metatile issues...

Mednafen is quite good for systems like PC Engine (the best emulator there is for it besides Mame) where it uses its own core, but its Nes core is based on FCE Ultra and is probably (correct me if I'm wrong) quite outdated compared to Mesen, Nintendulator and puNES. Both in terms of compatibility an...
