Re: How does Castlevania 3 render the character switch animation?

Thank you! I tried to find it myself by running the Mesen debugger 1 scan line at a time but no success.

What are other ways to render a sprite tile as something other than a standard 8x8 or 8x16 such as this?

How does Castlevania 3 render the character switch animation?

When the player switches character in Castlevania 3, character is drawn on alternate scan lines. How does the game do it? It doesn't seem to affect other sprites on same scan lines.

Re: Mesen - NES Emulator

A new experimental feature is added which allows additional tiles to be show on screen. Useful when the replacement requires more sprite tiles to fit. A demo pack for Megaman is included which shows an additional tile as a red box floating above Megaman. https://github.com/mkwong98/Mesen/releases/ta...

Re: Mesen - NES Emulator

@mkwong98, your penultimate (next to last) Mesen build says “0.9.9” in the lower right corner. Does this mean your version misses all of the fixes found in “DevWin-0.9.9.62”? Specifically, your copy resets Mesen every time I press the pause button; that doesn’t happen in DevWin-0.9.9.62. Obviously,...

Re: Mesen - NES Emulator

A question if I may, your binary is 6330 KB in size with this release whereas Novasquirrels binaries/artifacts is 5106 KB in size. Could it be that your "release" is optimized via PGO whereas regular builds that gets compiled automatically after a new commit is not optimized via PGO? Othe...

GBE+ Visual Studio fork

Hi, I created a fork of GBE+ which can compile to x86 exe using visual studio instead of CMake:
https://github.com/mkwong98/gbe-plus

Install QT5 and download SDL2. Then change the paths in the project to point to your files. I have no luck with x64 yet, so any help is much appreciated.

Thanks!

Re: Mesen - NES Emulator

I notice the Sprite Viewer is showing the Position Y using the value in the first of the 4 bytes in OAM instead of the actual position on screen (byte value + 1). Which one works better for you? I'm asking this because the "Copy All Sprites (HD Pack Format)" function is giving me the byte ...

Re: HD Pack's Mesen

Have you tried checking the links under the video's description (may need to click "more" first)? At least one of the pages contain a couple of descriptions (in Spanish, or whatever similar language that I am not able to read and too lazy to use Google Translate) and the download of the p...

Does anyone know more about this?

Best solution:
Change "ResourceHelper.ApplyResources" to also set the Form's font based on which language is selected. That will also change the font of all controls within the form.

Thank you for this solution!
