Re: What is too politically toxic?

Swahili has eighteen noun classes: two numbers times nine genders.

Re: MMC3 ROM Disassembly?

Are you looking for something that is to the NES with MMC3 as mgbdis is to the Game Boy with MBC1 or MBC5?

Re: Tools and Code Repository

I myself use GitHub to host little things, which appears similar to what the OP wants to do.

Or you could try GitLab if you don't like GitHub's parent company or its apparent reliance on proprietary JavaScript.

Re: Simultaneous DPCM and IRQ

As described in "APU DMC" on the wiki , $4010 bit 7 controls whether or not the channel fires an IRQ after all the data is read. Were you using this IRQ for something in your program, such as playing several samples in succession? If not, you can just disable the IRQ. Once you have disabled DMC IRQ,...

When even toxicity itself proves toxic, I don't know what to say.

Just from the description, it sounds a lot like Apple PackBits.

Re: Encrypted NES roms?

Complicating this is the existence of a handheld gaming computer called "Pandora" by OpenPandora, an older attempt at crowdfunding an open platform.

Re: Encrypted NES roms?

I looked at the supposed Pandora website (in Canada) and they insist that you're only buying the hardware and must add your own ROMs. They want to have it both ways, what a crock. Would it be worthwhile to approach the maintainer of the website asking how the publisher of an NES game can add a ROM?

Re: What happened to the Nesdev phpBB theme?!?!

I considered changing the template to use standard emoji, but Unicode doesn't have a gavel emoji yet, and the gavel (representing the moderation menu) is one of the icons I most often click with all the spam about.

Re: E-mail notifications and previously "subscribed" topics

Apparently "Allow subscribing" in General > Board features in the previous version of phpBB would also stop mails to existing subscribers. I'm guessing that the upgrade may have allowed existing subs to continue but hidden the UI to add or (importantly) delete them. So I'm turning subs back on.

Re: What happened to the Nesdev phpBB theme?!?!

The other issue with the popup menus only happens when javascript is disabled, otherwise, it requires a click. The only fallback there is to pop the menu up on hover, which is better than no menu at all. :P In theory, it should be possible to make a menu show and hide itself with a click using eith...

Re: What is too politically toxic?

this forum is a strange place. it's the only one i've ever seen where people are allowed to push around the moderators and get away with it. my advice to you, tepples, is to have confidence in your own abilities to figure this stuff out and not to let people push you around.

Re: Spam edits

I've seen other wikis that delegate authentication to phpBB. Our wiki could be changed to operate the same way, but that would require shell access in order to edit the wiki configuration, and I haven't yet seen evidence that WhoaMan plans to stick around to maintain things despite the recent activi...

Re: What happened to the Nesdev phpBB theme?!?!

A CSS container with a 1200px or equivalently 75rem width occupies half the width of the 2560x1440 pixel display of a 27" iMac. (Yes, that's 16 Game Boy displays wide by 10 tall.) If maximized, it leaves the left fourth and right fourth of the window as margin.

Re: NESMaker reviews?

Was I wrong to take a job at Retrotainment Games? I have no idea what you're talking about, so I can't tell wether your're "right" or "wrong". Just do what you feel like, and don't profit off other people's free time, and that should be OK. I was lead programmer on the games Haunted: Halloween '85 ...
