Re: Creating a Widescreen (16:9) NES-like Music Video

Macbee has made some demos using the full NES resolution, but made it so graphics optimized for widescreen, so it will look good on wide displays, but will appear stretched if viewed on 4:3 screens. I believe his new PC game Skatemasta Tcheco follows this rule. https://twitter.com/tchecoforevis/stat...

Re: looking for a coder[paid]

I agree with knight0fdragon. For changes like that, it might end up cheaper to rewrite the entire game. Compared to tracking down and fixing a bug in a rom??! I can't think of any situation where that might be true. When the bug is the game's engine itself, reverse engineering the engine from byte ...

Infamy of a game is another way to get someone interested in tearing it apart to mod out its faults. Infamy led to a quality-of-life patch for E.T. for Atari 2600 in early 2013.
Yeah, you tell me :lol:

Money is another way, but it may be expensive for exactly the reasons you've listed.

Re: NESMaker reviews?

It all depends on how the text is delivered. A transcript is only part of the message. I want to watch it before coming to a conclusion. And this is only a small part of the whole ordeal. I want to know why suddenly it's become okay to overpromise and underdeliver. Just because it's done that's no r...

Re: NESMaker reviews?

Was I wrong to take a job at Retrotainment Games? I don't think so, they are very nice people. About the movie, I didn't think the transcript was too insulting, but it did imply a few things for example when he explained what new nerds are now and that you are not one of those. I'm curious to see i...

Re: NESMaker reviews?

I really like Bananmos analysis. Maybe I'm being too harsh. But maybe I'm exagerating a little just to get people to notice it isn't all flowers and rainbows. @Skrotebag: wow, now you got me interested to watch it. That sounds bad. Especially with the free advertising in the front page of nesdev.com...

Re: E-mail notifications and previously "subscribed" topics

This happened to me with only one post. An "anonimous" user replied to the topic, which wasn't true, but I got the e-mail anyway. It coincided with the theme incompatibility upgrade. I'm almost certain I'm subscribed to some other topic too, but I only got one notification. And it was only once on t...

Re: reading ppu address from the second screen while scrolling (via sprite position)

Since noone replied, I'm going to try. I may be wrong! Here goes: Okay, first off, what exactly are you trying to achieve here? You can't read the ppu memory, you can only read some register statuses. It seems that you simply want to calculate the ppu address that each screen-space coordinate is dis...

Re: Can anyone help me figure out what game this is?

I imagined as much. Weird that my answer was exactly the same as the first answer there, down to the capitalization and punctuation.
