You almost have the PPU done? You should make a board that can be put in to an NES to replace the normal PPU and output multiple video formats. Like have one board with RGB and Component and another with S-Video and composite. The S-Video/composite board should have the color carrier rotate 180 degr...

TV snow actually is black and white only because for a field (half of an interlaced frame) to be rendered in color there has to be a burst of the color carrier (frequency which color is modulated on) at the beginning of each scanline. Since TV snow is just random noise, the likelihood of a continuou...

I wonder when this graph will reach its limit and copyright length will go off into infinity... Someone should do a logarithmic regression.

The speed rating shows how long it takes for the ROM to put the requested data on the data bus after the read signal is sent. Once it's there, it just sits there until another read. The 2A03 runs at 1.79 MHz and needs a ROM that it can read data from in one cycle. To find out how long a cycle is in ...

Depends on the game. Neotoxin? Yes. Another crappy, boring minigame? No.

Oh, and Not The Common Dose, the link doesn't work. I can't connect to smouch.net.

Yes, but 0-9 is, actually, $00 - $09. It makes using BCD for scores easier and faster. That, and I had to make the char set <= 85 tiles so I could fit all three versions in.

Thanks Blargg! File updated. And yes, Celius, scrolling on the NES is a pain. Whenever I write a tile to the name table, in order to scroll it in, I have to write the address of the OPPOSITE name table after I've done that. And I imagine trying to do 8-way scrolling with the NES is even worse. I was...

A generic text scroller! YAY!

Look, I finished something! For once. It scrolls text across the screen, and it comes with the source and a readme. Link

Celius, if The Game is that small, you might be able to enter it in an upcoming MiniGame Compo. Anyways, I nominate: NesSnake 2 Tetramino Mystic Pillars Siamond Sudoku 2007 As for demos, one of the PolyNESes would be nice, but the third one uses 128k of PRG-ROM and MMC1. I don't know what mapper you...

The tile-based parallax scrolling demo (choppy) doesn't have an .nes file. Since I don't have your compiler and don't want to download it, make one for us and put it up here.

You might want to read up on the MMC2 and MMC4 mappers. The MMC2 was used in Punch-Out!!, which uses many sprites for the boxers, and the MMC4 is a revision of the MMC2 with more PRG-ROM, larger bank areas, and PRG-RAM. All I could find peculiar about MMCs 2 and 4 was that: When the PPU reads from s...

1. Have you programmed in 6502 assembly before? If you haven't, go check out the main site (nesdev.com) and look at the stuff under "6502." Also check out 6502.org.
