Is there a general palette that is considered the most accurate? (Yes, I know that there is really no such thing as an *accurate* palette, but is there one that is generally regarded as the most accepted as accurate?) I've been given a few different answers through this throughout the years. At this...

@Psycopathicteen: Hm - is shade of purple way off? I'll have to ask Josh what palette he used. Is there a better one? This would be a fairly easy fix as far as I know, and might even be able to be variable. @Geod: We polled the community more than a few times - those who were vocal about it were ver...

Hey everyone - yeah, I think this might be the same guy that hit me up about it. I haven't figured out exactly how to respond, because I don't want to discourage anyone from doing what they feel might help the scene. However, I do want to be sure that it is known there is no affiliation. We were def...

$36. For 3 years of my life building an engine and a tool that can do it. And 30% of that is to cover fees and taxes. Yes. It's as close to free as the team can make it and continue to support it. If this can leave the legacy of helping others get into this and give a resurgence for interest in deve...

@Erock - responded to Mystic Origins questions elsewhere for ya! :-) As for mapper 30 on everdrive...we don't have control of that. We had a successful test of hacking Troll Burner as a mapper2, and it played fine (minus mapper 30 features like tile anim from chr ram bankswitching) on an Everdrive. ...

Hey everyone - so...this is Joe, proprietor of this wacky concept. Even though I have met so many of you and done everything in my power to be a force for awareness for what everyone here is doing over the past three years and hoped I'd fostered good will, I dreaded coming here and finding this comm...

Sure - but for most episodes, the *being on the cart* with proper label and whatnot will be part of the experience for the people on hand. But again, not adverse to doing a *powerpak* episode with a bunch of homebrews that never got a physical release from devs. :-)

Hey dude - part of the schtick is to be playing it on real hardware, so we're really trying to keep it to cart released, but it's conceivable that we could do an episode that covers ROM-only releases as part of that episodes theme? Also, even if it's not officially cart released, if a one of is flas...

Hey all - we started a YouTube show in an attempt to highlight the awesome stuff you guys are doing. Here is the first episode, looking at Batlab's Super Russian Roulette. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=BhC1k5VxDR8 If you'd like us to check out what you're working on, hit me up at Joe@TheNew8bitHeroe...

It's funny, I feel this odd sense of deja vu like I've had this exactly problem before, and there is some weird lingering code right here that i found that is never referenced in my entire program. I wonder if I dropped this for the other method. I'll give this a try. Speed is not a problem with thi...

I have a few instances of this - it is very very very old code, so it's been a while since I dug in, and there are a few quirks I'm not sure the reasoning behind. That being one. Now as I go back through and optimize with greater understanding, I'm attempting to fix all those sorts of things (in any...

Alright - so I'm attempting to do some optimization. Using ASM6, and using CHR ram. Essentially, I have different *types* of tiles that can be loaded (background, screen object, paths), and the loading of each treated slightly differently...and indexes to each are buried in their own tables. It gets...

Annnnnd first step = a failure. You are correct. On hardware, I had the glitch that tells me timing was, indeed, off. Drat. Curses. Foiled. IMG_2910.JPG I'd imagine this would be a fairly obnoxious series of trial and erroring to get exactly right (changing values, flashing, testing...rinse, repeat)...

Yeah, my order of operations for tomorrow is: 1) flash this to cart, test it on my top loader. If it works... 2) Iterate the actual game in its current form and spend likely the whole day moving some memory around, cleaning up my NMI to make it a bit more economical, tracking down places that would ...
