Re: ice climber (fds) strange emu behavior in later bonus st

I can't get your example to work Dwedit. Perhaps it's because it's beginning to get late here in Sweden and I'm tired. :) Anyway, my current code looks like this ("inserted" at $6667) but obviously it needs work assuming someone reaches a really high difficultlevel (not sure that's possible, I think...

Re: ice climber (fds) strange emu behavior in later bonus st

Ah thanks Dwedit, I'll fix this!

EDIT:
Hm, what would the expected behaviour be for "bonusfruits" assuming address $56>=$14? Should they start over from $00?

Re: ice climber (fds) strange emu behavior in later bonus st

Address $56 also seems to set the difficultylevel. At $13 it's pretty stressful. :) "Ice Climber" however will always have a special place in my heart, it was the first NES game I played back in the 80's.

Testers wanted for new patchingtool

Any ROM-hackers here that are interested in trying out my new patchingtool I've developed (running on Windows)? I'm looking for creative ideas to improve it and user feedback if it's useful for anyone else but me. :) The main point of my patchtool is to make it easier to develop ROM-hacks. Instead o...

Re: ice climber (fds) strange emu behavior in later bonus st

Tried doing a fix for this, but FCEUX seems to ignore my breakpoints with FDS-games. :/ What fix did you have in mind oRBIT? Also great work on all the patches you have done thus far! I hope a solution presents itself. :beer: Was wondering exactly what kind of fix you had in mind? The .fds could pr...

Re: ice climber (fds) strange emu behavior in later bonus st

Perhaps I'm doing something wrong but I've played alot with the FCEUX debugger earlier..
I set a breakpoint at $6667 but it is never triggered.

What's this cable for?

I was browsing a few photos I shot a few years ago when I visited the swedish Nintendo-distributor Bergsala and I noticed this cable in front of their NES. Looks like a joypad->Parallelport-connector or something? I am not aware of any hardware addon using such a cable, or do you guys know better?

Re: Bad Famicom Disk System audio

Just checked your recordings, they sound pretty much perfect in my ears anyway. My audio sounds like a radiostation that isn't properly adjusted (background noise/static). I'll try to get a recording soon..

Bad Famicom Disk System audio

I got myself an FDS unit to connect to my Famicom AV. It works fine but I think the audio that comes from the FDS (afaik it has some additional channels?) sounds really crappy. Alot of noise. Is it a common problem? I have no audioissues with the Famicom itself, I just noticed this when trying to pl...

Re: Poll: Adding Nametable-to-ROM Address Detection

My old "NESExplorer" tool can detect certain Nintendo-compressed nametable-data in PRG-ROM's (well, titlescreens/cutscenes mostly). Works pretty good in many cases:

Re: MadNESs

I actually googled a bit before choosing "MadNESs" but couldn't find any existing emulator that used it.. But I use an additional "s" anyway so.. :)
