Re: What code editor do you use?

@drag Notepad++ is in no way an IDE but is a nice text editor with syntax highlighting, which make it more useful than using notepad. Once you get to use a proper ide (and VSCode is technically not an ide but some editor with a lot of functionality to it, well, now almost an ide), notepad++ is less ...

Re: What code editor do you use?

What advantages does VS code have over Notepad++ ? Well, it depends on your need. With VSCode, one advantage is that it can be used on multiple platform (win/mac/linux) with exactly the same plugin. This was a huge thing for me. You have a lot of plugin that allow syntax highlighting for multiple l...

Why would coding in C only be for very small games?
I think the reason he said but he can correct me later is if you use only C and something like neslib you will be limited after a while compared to someone who can add some code in asm to improve performance. Seen that way, it make sense.

Re: Mega Man 9 remade into an NES ROM

What's the poitn of making a port/demo if it skips the problematic areas ? In my opinion the "problamatic areas" are the only part who are interesting to port on the NES... the rest would basically just be copy/past work and would be totally ininteresting. Because my goal as never been to port the ...

Re: Mega Man 9 remade into an NES ROM

Like Nesrock said (and you are aware of it too), I have been working on it until last year but due to some personal events, I'm not able to put as much time as before and had to put it on hold. This doesn't mean the project is dropped, just that I cannot work on it as much as I did. The intro is fin...

Re: What happened to the Nesdev phpBB theme?!?!

I miss the old color style. For me, after all those years, this doesn't look like the nesdev site anymore and I have a hard time with that. Links,I can adjust to location but the colors is what gave it charms. Now it's like if I'm reading some random forum and my interest in dwindling. That's how mu...

Re: Spam edits

@Rainwarrior There is nothing wrong for the wiki to be "private", in the sense that only regular members of nesdev can make post on it. Why is it so difficult to understand... I don't know :lol: It's not like it takes forever with a small community to know if a member is really here for contributing...

Re: Spam edits

@Begalad It may have been "better" before (for me, any spam is not ok but that's just me and my OCD :lol:) but I knew that it was heading that way with how the internet evolve with time so the right way was to make it simper for people to make accounts on it, not allow random post to be done since n...

Re: Spam edits

Like I mentioned in, hmmm, ~2009 when I first moved the wiki and forced non anonymous edit (and no post for new users but forgot about that one).... Nesdev is a niche community that the chance an anonymous edit will bring the "holy grail" of new information is close to none. If you still think other...

Hmmm....

Re: Not using center screw for nes cartridge is fine?

Thanks for everyone comments! I will let him no about everyone's opinion. Hopefully it won't be necessary to do it that way but that is a last resort to get a few nes cart released.
