Unfortunately the NES libraries included with cc65 don't work properly (unless they were fixed when I wasn't looking, I doubt it). I think it was a guy going by the name Petruza who was working on making some C libraries for NES. It was a little while back, I'm not sure how that progressed. I don't...

Static Disassembly: how could it be made?

I've seen that some people made a comprehensive disassembly of some Mario games and possibly others. I've no experience disassembling NES games, but I know it's possible that the 6502, as any other CPU, interpret any byte as an opcode, so for example, it could interpret some instruction on some addr...

Well in Spain, I believe, and other spanish speaking countries, they call them the "Tenis", which is basically the same as your example.

Here in Argentina it was popularized with the most bizarre name of all: "Family" I think that in the eighties a famiclone with the name "Family Game" was very popular around here and there's where the NES got it's popular name. So if you mention the "NES" in Argentina almost no one will know what yo...

Re: NES programming without Assembler actually possible?

Hi, I'm completely new to NES programming. I'm able to program with high level languages, but have never done anything Assembler-like. So, I'd really like to know: Is it actually possible to program an NES game in C and compile it with cc65 without having to use Assembler? Or is the NES support for...

Yesterday I finished a usable version of a disassembler inside my emu and caught such a stupid error as the branch instructions making the jump AND advancing the pc the lenght of the instruction ( 2 bytes ) I guess I can make a simple ROM that performs some examples of every instruction and go step ...

I'd like to master the IPA. Do you have an IPA keyboard configured or you copied and pasted it?

That leads me to another linguistic question:
What do you say? "ARM" or "a-ar-em"?
"NES" or "en-e-es"?
I've always heard "en-e-es" from english speakers, but I always called it the "nes" pretty much as the scottish, monster-inhabited lake.

Almost off-topic: Here in Argentina there is a famous US zipcode popularized by the series "Beverly Hills 90210" Back in the nineties I always heard and said "Ninety two ten" (Noventa dos diez) but always in spanish. Now, with the recent remake of the series, I think it's on cable channel Sony, alth...

Government interference in a market is called distortion ... I agree. But again, a distortion is a displacement from a normal state. It depends on what we see as normal or ideal. Imposing trading rates by the state is indeed a distortion from a free, unregulated market. That's a distortion if we co...

I think his reasoning goes something like this: - A NES ROM maker would be AWESOME, DUDE - An awesome thing gets plenty of donations - Money is the only thing you need to get things done, so someone will code this for all the money I'll get from donors - Voilà, I present you to the NES ROM maker!

Yeah, I say it that way too. The few times I discussed about the 6502 with someone, I remember saying and hearing the spanish for Sixty five oh two.
