You'd be surprised at how close the Game Boy Game Link protocol is to the NES controller protocol, but unfortunately, the NES can act only as a master, not as a slave. So they're working on RS232 with timed code instead.
I knew it was good practice to reuse code, but this is pretty wild. :P

:idea: Hmmmm.....that gives me an idea. Could you hook 2 NES systems up to a RAM via the controller port and have them both read it? That would be very interesting to have as a way of communication! :idea:

I remember a long time ago, the "Snakeyes Gaming Corp" board wordfiltered "Pokemon" into "Crapflap". So there were tons of people begging for a "Crapflap gold" translation. Man, I'm old.
I realize I'm jumping into this conversation ten years late, but I just want to say how happy I am that DWEdit remembered this running gag so fondly. Those were good times!
