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: ROMHacking Thread

This is probably the most interesting Super Mario Bros hack I've seen - I think it's actually held back by trying to be true to the source material, but you do get a rare hammer powerup, barrels, fireballs, sidestepper crabs and fighter flies, as well as a unique ending and levels. https://www.youtu...

Re: Things I Say

It's always "we can't help you because we're booked, come back in two months," then "we can't help you because your medical insurance covers basically nothing," then "we can't help you because you're too far gone and we can't save it now"

Re: What's Happening In the World?

The local news here in LA had zero empathy for Anne Heche, from when she was blacklisted in 1997 right up til the end. 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...

Re: What's Happening In the World?

"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.

Re: Recommend one song.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4IFQZyxxyyM RIP to a real one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ajqbGlw2dFM Xanadu (1980) was a nod to the musicals of the 40s and the 70s, in the 80s. This is also an easy-mode track in the Dance Dance Revolution video games, drawing a line into the 90s and 00s as well...
