Re: Hello, new here, and need best recommandations.

Yes it's is a "hello world" of sorts, but with the intention that we know that we can use asm6. Like many command line programs, asm6 reads input, does some processing, and writes some output. The input and output are files. In this case should contain what the first and last code boxes have. The se...

Re: Hello, new here, and need best recommandations.

Ok, so let's see if we can get asm6 to work. in a plain text editor such as Windows Notepad enter and save the following as "test.asm" .db "hello world", $0d, $0a, "Second line", $0d, $0a In a round about way, this will basically instruct asm6 to make a file that is just 2 lines of plain text (not a...

Re: Hello, new here, and need best recommandations.

When the default gray color shows, that's when the the graphics chip has warmed up. All you'll need is a valid .nes file . Frankly it's kind of odd you specifically don't want a template for this part as that is basically all you need to succeed in generating such a file. It's like saying we need a ...

Re: Hello, new here, and need best recommandations.

The first test I need is to make NES turn on 100% without using any already-created templates. There are many beginning steps in a running NES game/program, each of which can be considered "turned on at 100%" by various people. The cartage is in and the CPU loads bytes $fffc and $fffd into the Prog...

Re: Action 53 volume 4

That awesome, I remembered seeing this while searching youtube a year or 2 ago, then now I forget about it. Thanks again for reaching out and contacting people. RetroSouls seemed hard to contact in the past, and I was hoping to reach out to them about Alter Ego for the NES later next year, but we'll...

Re: Action 53 volume 4

Ahh sorry about that, I just got the time today to begin typing up my own email, but I guess I'll hold that. The only thing extra I would say is that I'll be willing to replace the sfx myself if no one else is able to. I assume the engine is famitone2 which define sfx as a sequence of register write...

Easy enough to do (until I have another idea for the button).

Re: Action 53 volume 4

Attached is an up to date build.

Screenshot improvements, description corrections, bug reports and fixes, incorrect version (md5sums in the last page), more things to include (it's only 3/4 full), or any other suggestion would be appreciated.

Re: Action 53 Master Version Work-thread

I think I fixed up those screenshot a bit from your critique. Thanks. After some investigation about adding Award Icons . The suggestion from NovaSquirrel to simply just use the unused palette won't work, as bits of black dots from previous lines will show up. It could work if the light gray color w...

Re: Action 53 Master Version Work-thread

Today I hit a big milestone which is "generating color screenshots", expect I did all 82 of them by hand in GIMP. It took awhile but I'm very pleased with the results, an I hope you all are as well. Attached is today's build is demonstrating all those screenshots, with descriptions as I currently ha...

Re: Action 53 volume 4

Would anyone be up to composing a short 4 bar piece of music for the splash screen of volume 4?

There's doubts that we should continue to use the music loop that was present for the previous volumes.
