Re: Dual D-Pad Controls (and a minor rant)

We talked about this more in the posts that followed but: Oh. Is that what all that jargon meant? I'll read it slowly and see if I can understand. So, to read more than one controller from a SNES multitap on an NES would require a custom adapter, sadly. Check lidnariq's suggestion on the previous p...

Re: Dual D-Pad Controls (and a minor rant)

You could potentially use a SNES multitap connected to an NES with an adapter, as long as the adapter wires both D0 and D1, and not just D0. Otherwise you might make your own adapter to connect 2 SNES controllers into 1 NES port via D0 and D1. The original Famicom could almost do this, if it didn't...

Re: Dual D-Pad Controls (and a minor rant)

There is no limit on the number of buttons that can be read by the game. Sounds promising. :) All existing 4 player adapters, however, do impose limitations on controllers. Damnit! :x I'm not sure why you would want to use a Fourscore though, there are already NES homebrew that supports the SNES co...

Which version of the Everdrive MD is it? Also, are you selling these in a set or individually?

Dual D-Pad Controls (and a minor rant)

So a minor limitation that some games go through when being converted for the NES (like from arcade) are the limited buttons of the NES. One particular control style I'm interested in is the twin stick of shooter games like Smash TV. I know this game was ported to NES. I've yet to play it. I read so...

Re: The 16-bit War. . . .

audio channels 6 Genesis has some tricks up its sleeves to go beyond the on-paper specs, such as using the legacy Master System sound chip alongside the Genesis sound channels for more sound channels than the SNES ultimately, although those extra channels sound even more limited and dated than the ...

Re: Utilizing Game Maker for 2D Online Multiplayer

How'd you get a perpetual license? I'm jealous. 4 years ago. They don't do that anymore, I'm afraid. I thought they stopped letting you get updates. You mean to the script files or the extension itself? I think you should just let Mick upload your example. I didn't edit the extension itself (dlls o...

Re: Utilizing Game Maker for 2D Online Multiplayer

I'm using the latest GMS2 (I have a perpetual desktop license). How'd you get a perpetual license? I'm jealous. What error are you getting? I wish you would have asked me this before I gave up on this asset and deleted my error text files. You may want to edit GME the same way I did. Look in the th...

Re: LaserEyes

I counted all the tiles I'm using so far: HUD / 'EXIT' text: 24 Lasers: 53 Stage Elements (bricks, pillars, boundary, bombs): 144! :shock: (the bomb explosion alone takes 48) This totals 221 and only leaves me with 35 tiles for the cracked/breaking brick walls. I suppose the laser tiles could be loa...

Re: LaserEyes

I really hate making these small updates, but I didn't like how the center pillars seemed wider than the angled ones. I found a fix which also helps make them appear taller: pillar_compare.png All 3 perspectives: pillars1.png Edit: Or I could just do this: pillars3.png Edit: another small update, I ...

This color scheme works great! :)

What do you think? It's the first subpalette, and it gives the block a pinkish tint. Here's how it would look:

Re: Utilizing Game Maker for 2D Online Multiplayer

I'm probably just going to use MP3s and limit the amount of SFX that plays at each stage then.

If I do go with audio, are there ideal compression/filters that replicate an NES using AV out? Hz?
