Re: ROMHacking Thread

This is, admittedly, getting into dicey territory, but I'm wondering if there is any kind of ASM (or other) framework out there for assembling NES/Famicom multicarts as ROMs. As in: a script or application or framework which could assemble many 40k NROM NES ROMs into a single ROM. Or alternately cou...

Re: ROMHacking Thread

There are some unused CHR graphics banks in (Kemco NES) The Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle (and more in some hacks). It would be interesting to have the CHR used for character sprites change on every level, to allow for five or six or more sets of (four) enemies. This could even be random. Ideally it would...

Re: What's Happening In the World?

They talked about property damage, asked what was in her system, and said she'd be going to jail for a long time if she lived. Like she CHOSE to die in a car crash. I gather that it...

"It's best to understand that fascists see hypocrisy as a virtue. It's how they signal that the things they are doing to people were never meant to be equally applied.
