Behind the Scenes NSF Ripping

I don't ever recall posting this video here so I will do it today. It is different than the Level 20 document but still uses a lot of the same techniques but it is more freelance ripping of a easy NSF. This is how I rip some NSFs. It has a couple minor mistakes in the explanation but I didn't want t...

Re: NES playroutine identifier

I am definitely going to be messing with this program. I have skimmed through all the files and I'm about to fire it up soon.

Re: More NSF Requests

Thanks Karmic, much appreciated my friend.

It seems like we all do a metric ton of work and it's intellectually challenging as well.

Re: More NSF Requests

My website is also down and I need a new host which I need to figure out where and then I'm either going to transfer the entire site or design a new one that's a little more lighter because I was using quite a lot of web space.

Re: More NSF Requests

Totally impressive with all the activity going on lately. Right now I can kick back and listen to some awesome NSF rips for a change. lol I've been going through all my files and trying to organize a new NSF project folder on this PC. Seems like I'm getting interested in it again. Honestly, I ripped...

Re: Best debugger?

The very first fork of Nintendulator, by rveach has a lot of nice features for NES ROM hacking as well as for working on your homebrew games. Some of the features were implemented in the official version by Quietust. I have used Unofficial Nintendulator a lot and was helping to spot bugs and such. h...

Re: Getting started again!! Romhacker to NES Game Programmer

Controller reading in the NMI and game logic in the main thread could cause your game logic to miss presses, especially if the NMI handler also calculates the "pressed or released since last frame" flag. It sounds like I need to move the controller code out of the NMI then if it's going to be buggy...

Re: Getting started again!! Romhacker to NES Game Programmer

That's one thing I've been trying to figure out is how to layout my code between NMI or in the Reset code. In other demos I've put most of the code in reset. I've had problems doing that before. I'm trying a bulk of the code in NMI but I am setting up flags to enable and disable code routines. Not s...

Re: More NSF Requests

How did you fix the speed issues?

I know that you know this but always try to fix speed issues inside the NSF itself. Using the header bytes for those won't make them run right on the real NES in some cases. Some NSF players don't support using that header byte.

Re: Getting started again!! Romhacker to NES Game Programmer

That's good information to know about Famitracker. Although, I definitely need a sound driver that can use sound effects and be somewhat efficient memory and cycle wise to keep my options open with as much time as I can get. Although, it's not a big concern but the sound effects are. I've been worki...

Re: Getting started again!! Romhacker to NES Game Programmer

Well, I hope you consider updating the asm6 version when you have time and interest. That would be great. I have been working on a basic template for NROM. Nothing more than getting the header in place and defining the interrupt vectors. I'm going to fine tune it some more until I am happy with it a...

Re: Getting started again!! Romhacker to NES Game Programmer

I'll take a note of that for Famitone2, GG Sound and Pently. I hope I can use them. Thank you. I have some disassembled drivers for various games and Final Fantasy I being more complete than the others but mostly I kept notes in my head because it slows you down when you have to document everything....

Getting started again!! Romhacker to NES Game Programmer

I have made demos before but more to understand how the NES works rather than trying to make games. This was done to to increase my skills as a Romhacker. I am far better at reverse engineering games than I am making them which seems to require a new set of skills which I'm willing to learn. I have ...

Re: More NSF Requests

Hey, guys. Sorry that the navigation on my site is not to your liking but I have used frames because this site is very old. I have been thinking about updating it to W3C standards but I haven't really motivated myself enough to change my entire website. Yes, I have made redirects for pages outside m...

Re: More NSF Requests

Hey guys, I'm kind of back but I needed a very long break because I had been ripping for years and had a lot of requests and taking care of the archive, and many other things associated with NSFs. Long story short, I was already kind of burned out from the workload and then I was accepting donations...
