tepples, I hope this feedback isn't going to be taken the wrong way: I know what you're asking in terms of the help you want, but the package as it stands literally requires such incredibly high technical knowledge of both Linux and Microsoft Windows, as well as build systems and an awareness of what a make file is, and GNU indoctrination, that as it stands anyone that can interpret it would already be able to copy/paste/borrow from documentation and commercial games the necessary ingredients to initialize a system as simple as the SNES.
Please don't throw anything out, your readme just needs a lot more explanation on setting up the build environment you have created, what each external program piece is doing, what is what, where to get the pieces, what to type
, and things of that nature.
You're a funny person with some really dry humor. But most code comments I see contain quips that are not actually helpful.
This would actually bring me to tears of frustration on a bad day: "echo Files produced by build tools go here, but caulk goes where?"
"; 16x16 makes it a shitload easier to draw a player sprite" :facepalm:
Who is your intended audience. Maybe even state that in the text file?
Let's run this down as a typical n00b:
**I use Visual Studio in School to make programs, and now I wanna program a Mario game on SNES (or something)**
I downloaded the zip package.
I double click on readme.txt
it tells me in the text to use something other than notepad.
fine now i have to actually extract the zip package to a folder.
I now open readme.txt with notepad++
I reach the sentence "Building this demo requires cc65 for the PRG ROM, and Python and Python Imaging Library for the CHR ROM."
I am slightly puzzled.
I google "cc65 for the PRG ROM" as that is what it requires.
first google result takes me to "https://github.com/cc65/cc65/blob/maste ... nes/crt0.s
I am confused.
Go back to the readme file.
I read the sentence "You'll probably also need GNU Make and Coreutils, which Windows users can find in MSYS"
"MSys accepts high-end technology challenges and delivers quality solutions for our clients operating in numerous domains. Our commitment to the clients' success made the clients to get a superior-level of confidence and partner with MSys"
Do I think the package you have is a very good start? Yes. Absolutely. A lot of work went into it.
