Re: new to snes environment, have some questions.

Got the .pal values converted. A little darker than what i'm used to, but I still like it! :-)

Now to further expand my learning of the system. :-)

Re: new to snes environment, have some questions.

Thank you again koitsu, I have a .pal file, but I cant seem to view the colors R,G,B values within any emulator? It just (which I already know) shows the 8-bit value used for it, from #$00-#$3F. I don't know what i'm supposed to use exactly to view the file properly? EDIT, oooh I think I got it figu...

Re: new to snes environment, have some questions.

Thanks koitsu! I haven't had a chance to get back to my test rom, I work 55/60 hours a week, so my free time is extremely limited, but tonight I should he able to get back to toying around. :-) I've been thinking about getting back to it alot this week. It's very exciting stuff! And from all he pale...

Re: new to snes environment, have some questions.

I'd like to do exact nes colors on the snes. Also the palette viewer in bsnes displays incorrect colors when creating the colors. If I try designing a color by watching the main game screen, I'll get an incorrect color block in the viewer. If I try creating a color within the palette viewer, then th...

Re: new to snes environment, have some questions.

Is there a program that can take an NES palette id, and concert it to snes bits? I've wasted hours trying to mimic the colors from the nes. Idk if there's already a conversion table on the Internet? Thanks!

Re: new to snes environment, have some questions.

Excellent! I changed it to 2bpp GameBoy, saved the gfx, and when I loaded up bsnes, 2bpp displayed correctly. :-)

Re: new to snes environment, have some questions.

I know I've seen a window in yy-chr, where you are able to change the bpp view.

So am I correct with this thinking...

Open snes rom, change the view to 2bpp, paste the tiles I want into the snes rom, and while the view is still set at 2bpp, I then save the rom?

Thanks! :-)

Re: new to snes environment, have some questions.

Ok, I'm away from my laptop till tonight, but I'm making progress. I redid the snes initialization routine, then after that (using DMA) I was able to load and store palettes into the CGRAM. After that, again using DMA, I was able to load and store my tileset at address $0000 in VRAM. Then, I started...

Re: new to snes environment, have some questions.

A is 8-bit. I'm not sure regarding vblank, this is still new to me. Is the routine at least correct looking? And with me loading $2000 bytes, what snes registers do I need to set correctly for vblank? Thanks!

Re: new to snes environment, have some questions.

Hmm, I'm having an issue getting data to be stored within the VRAM. Using bsnes, when I view the Memory Viewer to see the VRAM, nothing is getting stored to it, yet the bytes I want to be read, are read? I'm obviously missing a step or doing something wrong. :-/ LDA #$80 STA $2115 ;increase VRAM add...

Re: new to snes environment, have some questions.

Thanks for those tips! Much appreciated! :-) I'm so impressed from a coding perspective, with how much more can be done with the snes. I've worked with the nes since 2005, and I'm just at the point where I feel comfortable now to tackle the snes, since I've had success with nes romhacks, and coded 2...

Re: new to snes environment, have some questions.

OK I see now what's happening. In bsnes when I view the CGRAM, using the addresses $000 & $001, the address showing me only .421|8421 is $001. So when I write the 2nd byte to $2122, then that's the one with the leftmost bit unused. And I was also able to direct $2121 wherever I wanted it to start wi...

Re: new to snes environment, have some questions.

Thanks for that info! :-) I have 2 questions with CGRAM. 1: Are you able to set the desired CGRAM address via $2121, by writing to it twice like you would on the NES for $2006? 2: I've written 2 bytes to $00-$01 of CGRAM. The first byte is fine, but no matter what I put for a 2nd byte, it's always i...

Re: new to snes environment, have some questions.

Thank you everyone for all the info! I was doing some testing with the JML & JSL, very cool! I learned how to correctly set the desired address, and the bank number, and was able to return properly with the RTL, again that's so cool how that works! And also a first, I wanted to clear all of the $000...

new to snes environment, have some questions.

I'm now getting the desire to get serious with learning to write for the snes. But I have a few questions as to understanding how the RAM/ROM works. I know 6502, I've hacked many games which a lot of people know, and I've now written 2 games from scratch for the NES. Just wanted to give that brief b...
