Re: Hello, new here, and need best recommandations.

Welcome back DocW, maybe this has already been discussed in this thread, but regardless: 2KB INTERNAL RAM is memory that can be written to while the program (nes game) is running (i.e. variables). PPU I/O PORTS are addresses that allow access to the PPU Picture Processing Unit APU/CONTROLLER I/O PO...

Re: Hello, new here, and need best recommandations.

I'm back again. Thankfully, I still remember the Register and the some other part. I would be really depressed if I didn't understand this on today. So, here's what I'm gonna do. I'm going to write Psudocodes to get idea of what I want for NES ROM making and others, and try to understand the address...

Re: Hello, new here, and need best recommandations.

As a relatively new nesdever I'd recommend not worrying too much about tools in the beginning. You will gain a better understanding of how things are put together the longer you keep things basic. Following a simple tutorial with whatever tools used there will be enough to get you started. It's gon...

Re: Hello, new here, and need best recommandations.

I remember feeling that way too... but, I said a prayer and my heart was enveloped in peace. :) Hopefully, you'll be able to do this too.

Re: Hello, new here, and need best recommandations.

If I can't make up names for codes, there's chances for me [or anyone] to forget connective mnemonics for me [or anyone] to understand or recognize the opcodes or other words. I would've struggle more with ,x / ,y / ,a if I never made up the name, "Charter Comma". Would "index comma" have worked? N...

Re: Hello, new here, and need best recommandations.

If I use a template, I will literally be missing out on everything on starting to make the base for .NES ASM stuff. Quite the contrary! It's better to study/dissect/break a known good template to figure it out than start from nothing without knowing what to do. You need quite a bit of knowledge abo...

Re: Hello, new here, and need best recommandations.

Ok, so let's see if we can get asm6 to work. in a plain text editor such as Windows Notepad enter and save the following as "test.asm" .db "hello world", $0d, $0a, "Second line", $0d, $0a In a round about way, this will basically instruct asm6 to make a file that is just 2 lines of plain text (not ...

Re: Hello, new here, and need best recommandations.

When the default gray color shows, that's when the the graphics chip has warmed up. All you'll need is a valid .nes file . Frankly it's kind of odd you specifically don't want a template for this part as that is basically all you need to succeed in generating such a file. It's like saying we need a...

Re: Hello, new here, and need best recommandations.

The first test I need is to make NES turn on 100% without using any already-created templates. There are many beginning steps in a running NES game/program, each of which can be considered "turned on at 100%" by various people. The cartage is in and the CPU loads bytes $fffc and $fffd into the Prog...
