Re: Questforge mapper info

Yes, remove the offending hardware from the equation and you obviously don’t have it’s concerns. Extracting the NROM game from the Chinese multicart design and playing on another cart isn’t going to be straight forward. Thanks! I wasn't clear on your answer but my question was ambiguously stated. I...

Re: Questforge mapper info

My recommendation would be to simply play them on a cheap clone as it will likely be running at 3v itself. The fact that clones typically run near 3v may be part of the reason the Chinese designs don't bother with 5v tolerance. Would it be safe (safer?) to just dump the ROM with Kazzo and then play...

Re: The Legends of Owlia passwords

Owlia's password reminds me of tepples's suggestion for an RPG password with its "chapter" and "event flags for chapter" bits. Yeah, that looks like good advice to me too. I think the really great thing about this is that a lot of different programmers have independently approached this problem ove...

I did recently put together a piece about the password system used by the homebrew game The Legends of Owlia (recently re-released as a free ROM) which...
