Re: Pausing during NMI execution.

Let me answer before someone who really knows what they are talking about does. Maybe I'll get something right, but I want to try and see! :) The ppu does not stop for you, in fact, it is always doing its thing in a loop, about 60 times per second, as you mentioned. By "pause" I imagine you mean loc...

Re: Retro Game Builder (make your own snes games)

I just have to say, NESMaker was created by a basically nobody in the scene, and it promised a lot based on nothing to show, and it still got funded. It seems to me that the most important thing today is marketing.

Re: Retro Game Builder (make your own snes games)

It was canceled. Andy West saw the writing on the wall too. Why was it cancelled? (I don't know what the writing on the wall expression means) edit: okay I found his announcement and I researched the expression (it means to foresee a bad outcome).

Re: Testing proximity

Objects must be "snapped" to the grid, no? And only one object can be at a cell in the grid at any given time? Then have a grid in memory that tells you what is on each grid cell. Then when you push up you only check if there's a box on the cell directly above the player.

Re: struggling with understanding pallets

Are you increasing the address as you write? Sound like you're writing all bytes to the same byte address.

I'll look into this. What size of metatiles do you happen to be using?
2x2. The same happens if I edit a palette, the metatiles will only be updated with that palette once I click on the map in the list of maps.

Re: Question on background tiles(and how to put them into the PPU)

Shorterest version: write twice to 2006 to write the NAM address (in the range of $2000-$2400 for NAM 0), then write as many bytes as you want to $2007 (these are the tiles you want to see on screen). This will work, it will write to the nametable. After you've done that, you will notice there can b...

Re: Incandescent

I'm not sure why splitting the title screen is necessary. I tested here and NES Screen Tool seems to have generated a full nam of it in one CHR just fine?

Re: Tool: MapEd Pro

Thanks, done :) There's a minor one that I noticed: when leaving the metatile editor and going back to the map editor, the new metatiles aren't shown in the metatile picker. Only when I click the map on the maps list does it refresh. One can get used to that, but I was puzzled for a while hehe. Anyw...

[...] if I try to edit the MCF I get "Run-time error '76' Path not found" and it crashes.
Been getting this error with 0.30 too, nothing I can do will get past this problem. Even if the path is simple like E:\mapedproj it will throw the error.

Thanks guys. I have just found this page on the wiki. https://wiki.nesdev.com/w/index.php/Programming_guide It seems to have basic info I should read.
