Re: [demo] SNES Sonic

Thanks! I'm actually a multi-system fan! (from 8bit to psx/saturn). I still want to try something on the PC-Engine, It's really cool to see somebody with this kind of mind, then i suppose those demos are your "hello world" :wink: As a pcengine/supergrafx coder,i suggest you to aim the supergrafx, i...

Re: [demo] SNES Sonic

Fantastic work! :) As was said above, super speed scrolling doesn't need ''blast processing" marketing blah-blah-blah. It could be done even on NES - and "Bio Force Ape" is real example of it. However some time ago I met some holywar-inducing interview with Treasure game company (authors of Gunstar...

Re: Making "Good" Assembly Code

Are examples of valid sentences, my point being you need to add these aditional words or rearange the structure to make it valid, while "Move to B from A" in it self is not a valid sentence. No you do not. "Move to B" is a command. No different than "Sit down". Not only is it grammatically correct,...

Re: Math vs Language in programming

I wouldn't necessarily consider something like "r0 = r1 & $1ff" to be closer to math syntax, simply because "=" is a glaring difference. The "=" symbol is assignment here, not equality or true equivalence like in math. I think "r1 & $1ff => r0" or "r0 := r1 & $1fff" would be closer to math syntax. A...

Re: Making "Good" Assembly Code

I would have thought that "money" was an uncountable noun (like "water") and that if you wanted to refer to multiple forms of money you would just rewrite it using another noun like "currency". But looking it up, both "moneys" and "monies" are correct plural forms according to dictionaries. I've on...

Re: Making "Good" Assembly Code

Math is not a word. Canadian here; yes it is. You are suppose to be of the Commonwealth and know better. Wooow. That's not insulting at all :lol: "Maths" just sounds like something a 4 year old would say though. It's like saying "stuffs", or "monies" (yes I know people use the last one, but why??? ...

Re: Making "Beautiful" Assembly Code

Mov is an Intel thing Someone hasn't coded for other processors haha. MOV/MOVE is used for more than just intel assembly syntax. I'm not particularly a fan of LD, ST, and the different variations of it, but it's better than LDA/LDX/LDY, etc. Those really should have been LD #$10, A... ST A, var2.. ...

Re: NES Low-Pass Filter?

No. The signal wasn't any better. CRTs are brighter, and smaller. Up close, the pixels are pretty fuzzy, but at the size of a typical CRT it's not as noticeable. That's small part of it, but definitely not all of it. The issue is still with how the newer non CRT TVs capture the signal, filter/prep/...

Re: We need a better name for "Adventure Games."

Edit: Now that I think about it even more, you probably wouldn't call Zelda a metroidvania, but you'd probably call Zelda, Metroid, and SoTN all exploration games. I would call Zelda "action-adventure". Adventure already implies it to be non-linearity other wise anything is an adventure haha. "Acti...

Re: Hello, I'm back, still need assistences

There's also absolute, indexed, indexed indirect, indirect indexed Honestly, the documentation should read indexed->indirect, and indirect->indexed to show the order of the procedure more clearly IMO.

Re: KickC Optimizing C-Compiler now supports NES

I myself would advise against using this parameter because I think that compiler flags shouldn't change the meaning of the code. If I want local static variables, I declare them as such, I don't let the compiler do this. This has nothing to do with optimization, that's basically redefining the lang...

Re: Hello, I'm back, still need assistences

There's a reason why I'm asking so many questions here. I can't understand well with explanations on books, on Easy6502, and famously Nerdy Nights. It's been two years since I learn what A X and Y Register is for, and I understand fully on those stuff. I'm not like anyone or you who could understan...

Re: Does this song remind you of a song in an NES game?

There is a self-created song that someone gave me. What NES tracks did they train it on? I think he is asking if it was generated by a neural network, or something to that degree? Was the song generated by an algorithm or composed by a person? I was under the impression it was composed by a person....

The Zero Flag: It turns on if the A, X, Y, or S Register has zero? It turns on if ONLY The A Register is turned on? Or if the destination of Address is holding zero right now?
