Haunted: Halloween '85 is a native PC remake, with noticeably different physics when running down a hill. The Curse of Possum Hollow uses an emulator.

If I'm not mistaken, that's exactly what HH85/86 on the PC are, they're not being emulated. I think.

Except for a glitching game, I don't remember why I updated to 10 (maybe something with regarding vs too). The video card and dvd drive died but the rest "seems" fine but I think I need to take into consideration that a 10 years old computer ...

... some kind of middle ground where there is at least a digital option. To me, that's actually the least interesting option. I can't play it on my NES, but I also can't play it on the emulator of my choice. At that point, it's just (to me) another PC game that looks like a NES game.

... know if it's because of the latest patch (spectre, meltdown, swiss cheese whatever) it seems to be getting slower and slower by the day. I forgot why I went to 10, must have been an issue I had with 7 or something. I could go back to windows 7 (which I still prefer) but that would be quite time ...

You are right. I always have called it pad0, I dunno why I didn't get around changing it when I did the rewrite. Maybe 'cause it was gradual and never touched the "heart".

Haunted Halloween These both have Steam versions for download. Not quite a ROM release, but it's some kind of middle ground where there is at least a digital option. As for whether they were financially successful, I don't have any information about that. I could also list Mystery World Dizzy and D...

Just for the sake of argument, I think the two most financially successful modern NES releases are probably Cheetahmen II , and Super Russian Roulette . In both cases, the most important factor for success was (no surprise here) marketing . Anti-piracy doesn't seem ...

... kind of insane, so I won't go into it, but under normal circumstances this is considered "write only" memory. (This is also related to why we usually reserve a 256 byte page of CPU RAM as a buffer to be copied into OAM.) The OAM isn't even a clean 256-byte block, since the unused attribute ...

This. For me, making a game on the NES, is exactly that - a game that plays on the NES! Running it on a PC via an emulator is completely missing the point, and I might as well just have made a PC game, which would have been much easier. Don't ...

... have been. As far as what to do in your project, that's up to you. The vast majority of games lose money, with indie having it worse than AAA, and NES homebrew likely even worse. We don't have many data points to look at here, but almost all unsuccessful games get quietly buried, so the scraps ...
