Re: Disch has passed away

Very unfortunate news. I don't remember if I ever really talked with Disch personally, but it was always apparent that he was one of the foundational people in the scene even back when I was first dipping my toes into the world of ROM hacking and homebrew back in the early 2000s. My condolences to h...

Re: bsnes-plus and xkas-plus (new debugger and assembler)

Here's the issue in question, if anybody's curious: https://github.com/devinacker/bsnes-plus/issues/252 Turns out it's not an emulation bug, but rather a fairly obscure caveat. It's pretty well known that you can't use $211b for multiplication during mode 7, but as it turns out, multiplications can ...

Re: Keeping your eyes on the size

I made another small demo for the Demosplash 2019 party held over the weekend. This time it's a 345-byte implementation of the Atari XL demo "Mona" originally created by Ilmenit. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uDIGPATH7mM https://demozoo.org/productions/270100/ It's a bit bigger than the original (...

Re: BS-X Satellaview Datapak's

https://github.com/devinacker/BSFlashManager/releases/tag/0.2.0 Built a new release - now if you have the INL-Retro programmer you can use it to quickly dump/inspect physical memory packs over USB. I may add support for other tool options (e.g. Roswell , my own homebrew dumping solution), but right ...

Re: Using VS Code as an IDE for debugging assembly with sour

Apologies for taking so long to get back to this, but I'm definitely interested in helping it move forward now that I've been able to have the time for serious work on the emulator again. Incidentally, I did end up reworking the breakpoint editor in an unrelated effort just because I wasn't particul...

Believe it or not, Nintendo did it already!

Re: Nintendo "Game Processor" info thread

The mouse interaction is described rather thoroughly in the patent that I linked in the OP, along with drawings of the unit itself and mockups of the system software. (Throughout the body of the patent, the words "mouse" and "click" appear 38 and 46 times, respectively). I didn't really want to quot...

Nintendo "Game Processor" info thread

I want to start a general info thread about this thing just because I picked up one of the RAM cartridges for it recently, but the whole thing isn't very well-known or documented at this point. Basically, the "Game Processor" was some kind of system developed by Nintendo to allow people to develop s...

Re: Snes cc65

running the SNES in E mode at 3.58 mhz Running at 3.58 mHz requires running out of bank 80 or higher, which isn't possible in emulation mode unless you plan on literally never using interrupts (otherwise PBR will be destroyed as soon as an interrupt occurs). Also, while it still doesn't involve C, ...

Re: BS-X Satellaview Datapak's

This took longer to get around to doing than I meant it to, but I managed to successfully read a CF card through the Satellaview EXT port: images here In doing this, I designed a passive adapter using a CF breakout board connected to my own small custom board ordered from OSHPark. The KiCAD files an...
