Re: Aditional audio on a NES clone

If it is possible to add something between the cartridge and the console, and pass the audio through that, maybe.

Re: Is any input device for Famiom/Famiclon that uses /IRQ l

I don't know of any, although I have once suggested a use for it in imitating mapper 99 (I have seen the schematic for RF Famicom, and it is just wired directly to the cartridge /IRQ line), but only if the game does not use IRQ. Other uses are also possible, including actually using IRQ.

Re: I got obsessed with thinking about hex to decimal algori

LDA lo_table,X ADC hi_table,Y CMP #10 What's in lo_table , hi_table , X and Y? In X is the low byte, Y is the high byte, lo_table and hi_table are tables of digits. Different tables are used for each digit position. For example the ones digit (rightmost digit) will have lo_table repeating 0 to 9, w...

Re: I got obsessed with thinking about hex to decimal algori

There is also my method (which is used for 16-bit numbers). You need the first twenty patterns in the pattern table to be numbers 0 to 9 twice, and you also need lookup tables. And then, each digit (from right to left) will do like: LDA lo_table,X ADC hi_table,Y CMP #10 The ADC of each digit is then...

Re: Strategy for managing register values

My idea is to mention in the comments what registers are being used, so that you can remember. In the case of macros, you can also require the registers to use as arguments to the macro. (I have done both of these things.)

Re: Writing my own assembler

I use Node.js for command-line programs too (it doesn't need to be used for servers or GUI; as mentioned before, it is just another programming language and you could also use Python, Perl, or PHP). I think that Windows Script Host does not implement many ES6 features though? If you are writing a as...

Re: Assembler advice

As far as I know the assemblers commonly used are NESASM, ASM6, and ca65. (There is also my enhanced version of NESASM, although it is probably more confusing than the original and other assemblers when doing advanced stuff, but it is believed to be compatible with NESASM.)

Re: Thoughts about adding YMF262 to Famicom cart

You can just mention, "require audio jumper pack to play music in NES" (expecting the customer to provide their own audio jumper pack or Famicom)

Re: IRC vs. Skype/Slack/Discord vs. forums

IRC also does not require any special software to use; this was part of the design of IRC, to work without needing to install any special software (although it still helps to have special software for IRC, it is not strictly required). All of the others do need software.

I used to use Windows XP on my old computer, but since I got a new computer, I use Linux instead, and it is just a much better design than Microsoft Windows.

Re: Best Version of Windows?

Maybe you can get rid of some stuff by programming a separate computer (perhaps with Linux or BSD) to tamper with the data that it transmits/receives by internet. You can filter out Windows Update, Windows Store, etc You can also dual boot if necessary. There is also Wine, although you will have to ...

This is not the case with iCE40 FPGAs, although I don't know if the number of gates and the voltage and so on is suitable.
