Re: VT02 sound

You get 3 channels extra by adding VRC6. ? I'm not sure how this is relevant to my post, maybe you misinterpreted? I'm not looking for options to extend the NES's sound capabilities for any music or homebrew, I am aware of and am familiar with all of the various options already. I was wondering if ...

VT02 sound

Does anyone know of any Famitracker forks or other trackers that have VT02/VT03 sound support? I know it can be easily approximated in Furnace with 2x2A03s + a generic DAC channel, but was wondering if any software supports it natively alongside the specific hardware quirks that come with it e.g. th...

Re: SNES Doom Source Released! Now What?

DOOM-FX is particularly bad at channel sharing. The chainsaw is an especially glaring example, as it cuts out regularly even when the music isn't using all 8 channels. And a sound effect will often outright kill the music channel it steals, nerfing the music for the rest of the loop. The sound effe...

Re: Mega Duck

Interesting. Wonder why they'd go through the effort when just making a normal Gameboy clone would seem more profitable.

Mega Duck

Could someone tell me more about the hardware of this system? Online research results in conflicting answers. Some sources say that the Mega Duck is literally just a clone of the Gameboy but with an incompatible cartridge port (I know that many games released for Mega Duck were also ported to Gamebo...

Re: Mesen - Emulator

Speaking of fonts, it might be worth adding back the option to change the font in the memory viewer, as the font it's trying to use is not present on non-Windows systems and therefore the memory viewer is difficult to use because the font that it substitutes it with is not a monospace one.

Re: PPU Garbage Graphics Problem

Geeze, I think I see the problem now. There is an errant call to cover the "Press A to Serve" text with floor tiles that I'd meant to replace with a flag set. How embarassing! That's alright, the tile drawing code needs some refactoring anyway. I really can't thank you enough for taking t...

Where is this? I can't seem to find it.

Re: Can't get my old famicom work

Just an FYI, generally we call Famicom/NES consoles not manufactured by Nintendo (clones) "famiclones", not Famicoms. Thought I'd just mention that to prevent any further confusion and so you don't get mixed up, as any instructions for repairing Nintendo consoles may not apply to clone con...

Re: SNES Doom Source Released! Now What?

Off-topic to the current conversation but of curiosity what ever happened to that one trick that Randy Linden mentioned, something involving HDMA, that would have allowed the game to reach double its current speed? Was that not feasible?

I'm not sure "very little work" really applies here as, although Ben Heck didn't decap the custom ASICs, he seemed to do a lot of work on it (even if a lot of it was figuring out what was wrong with it and make it work again). As I understood it, Nocash emulated it based on the info he go...

Re: new technologies for developing on NES

Like DALL-E 2, ChatGPT is yet another service that I don't see myself evaluating any time soon until people can show me why it's worth the money. OpenAI allows one account per mobile phone number and does not support landlines or VoIP . I once tried to sign up for OpenAI and failed because I am not...

Re: zsnes graphics save state

ZSNES is not a currently supported or recommended emulator. Are you using ZSNES for a specific reason or are you able to use other emulators?
