CartCollector updated his “Generic Text Scroller” for NES.
UPDATE: The Generic Text Scroller is now version 0.2! It now comes with a program that allows you to convert text files into the .bin files that the program uses. Tedious hex editing is no longer necessary to change the .bin file.

smkd is working on a “Thrust Inspired Game” for the NES. However here are the latest news along with a new binary:

As far as names go, I am thinking a cheap acronym; STING:
I’ll just call it that if I don’t think of anything else.
Rob Bryant sent his Minigame Compo 2008 entry Clik over to the organizers.
