Re: Porting Cyberdogs to Super Nintendo

Why not use one of the modernized SDL ports, instead of the original ancient source?

Re: Need advice buying a NES-101 and a flash cart

Now you've confused wedNESday again :P

When the above two posts say flashcart, they mean Everdrive. Retrostage's boards are *not* flashcarts, they are flashable repro boards.

Re: Need advice buying a NES-101 and a flash cart

Retrostage's programmer only flashes the carts he sells. If there's no famicom discrete cart for sale, it's easy enough to get a famicom-nes adapter. Using an adapter with a NROM game doesn't matter.

Re: Need advice buying a NES-101 and a flash cart

Folks, stop telling the can't-solder-person how to manually build a cart the hard way :lol:

With products like I linked before, you put it in the programmer and press a button on your computer. For discrete carts like NROM there are no downsides, no different behavior.

Stop putting everything in one file. It's ugly.

Re: Difficulty logging in while using 4G

I haven't had any issues and I'm on a 4G connection, but it's a home connection where the IP does not change often.

Re: MMC5 extended RAM and fill mode

Presumably connecting it to the PPU means it can only be accessed during vblank.

Re: Record video from Mesen successfully?

Tepples, direct encoding to h.264 at a high quality would use far too much cpu while still being bad quality due to single pass. It simply doesn't make sense, it's the right path to record to a low-overhead format and transcode later.

Re: N64 game jam 2021
