Re: Single, precompiled program for both Windows and Linux?

Just wanting to put in my own two cents. All this stuff sucks because creating stuff from scratch outside of languages which require toolkits and such to make a UI is a complete and utter bitch, and it sucks. And it's 10x more code and headache for what should be 5% of your time. I totally understan...

Re: Spike & killtile talk (collision vs representation)

That's the sorta idea I had. That way if you don't save all tile info in another huge table of RAM you can still decide if they're hurt without as much math, but more objects to process, which I think it cheaper I'd bet.

Re: Spike & killtile talk (collision vs representation)

Dumb optimization idea, spawn an object and handle the hit detection against it with it in object code, and then just put background tiles as graphics like normal and remember when moved to re-adjust object data.

Re: Code organization with bank switching

In early Arcade games, they would call a routine that was in RAM, and then jumped back in after switch to their PRG code from a table at the very beginning of the ROM for what subroutine they wanted to call. Also an okay way of doing it probably.

Re: systemd[erp]

If you bork moving from systemd to anything else, you have one shot, since it boots the entire system. (When installed) I think it's much more sane to just pick something that doesn't use it. On the BSD front, it's easy to have uptime when you don't support anything. They ever get uptime on a stock ...

Re: Copying a pointer of a pointer to a pointer

Increment Y instead. You're pulling a bad zeropage location by doing Pointer+1 because it then grabs the incorrect address because the location shouldn't change. With (ZP),Y, the location at $00ZP and $00ZP+1 is queried for the address, the value of Y is then added to that address pointer to by the ...

Re: Makefile, how to make it react to any content included?

I think Meson would be able to make it work, I don't see why it wouldn't. I moved my projects too it, MUCH less headache over all. You can list deps of an executable even if they're not a .c file, afaik.

Re: Networking, Threads, and Multiplayer

I have experience in writing full client/server code in C, and handling everything manually. My takeaways when I was done were: The server I wrote was authoritative, it made it much easier, albeit this will not work well for games. All clients "ask" for what they need to be done. The client then sit...

Re: HP laptop screen frame breaks in under two years...

I thought my OS was screwed up, but then when I switched GPU makers, it was the same result on a new install. That's when I learned myLG 37" TV identified itself as 7" and that was my issue. Could be that for you?

Re: HP laptop screen frame breaks in under two years...

Force the screen size in your display settings if you're under Windows. Make sure there's also no mirroring or anything.


Then uninstall and put Linux on that, heh.

Very interesting project, specially the one ROM part.
Any plans to implement NROM-256?
I should probably change the description, it handles NROM-256 as well.

Re: Nintendo's recent attempt at competitive gaming.

Nintendo has ever tried to be competitive? That's a joke. Plus, if it isn't CSGO or DOTA2, who cares about the scene for it? Melee and other games as a competitive thing barely exist compared to those juggernauts. Blizzard's games are in seconds and gaining a little bit, but it's a lot of the compan...

Re: ZappR ROM-hacking utility

True, didn't even think of that. But still, custom formats....the worst of all. Wasn't there something to do with git and large binaries of data? I see git lfs for binaries in bitbucket.
