Video: NES Programming #42 – Stronger, Better, Faster

Michael Chiaramonte goes on with his NES Programming tutorials.

NES Programming #42 – Stronger, Better, Faster

Watch this video on YouTube.

So, instead of working on collision today like I intended I ended up working on optimization of the code using Mesen’s awesome debugger and event viewer. I wasn’t feeling comfortable with the performance we were seeing in NMI and worked to get a better understanding of what was going on so that we can get our collision running in a later stream.

The Retro League Podcast – Episode 443 – Accidentally Religious

The Retro League Podcast features discussion about the latest retro gaming news, re-releases, community developments and reviews of our favorite games.

This week:

This week we are having trouble understanding any non-American sports and maybe some American sports too. We’ve found one of the best pinball arcades that happens to be in a laundromat, but the Atari name-holders have dropped to a new low. Our listeners have picked their favorite movies from 1998 and one of our games-of-the-week is a game released by a book publisher instead of the game publisher who usually releases games based on it’s TV series.

Video: NES Programming #41 – MMC3 Banks Fixed And World Collision Attempt #1

Michael Chiaramonte shows us more NES Programming.

NES Programming #41 – MMC3 banks fixed and world collision attempt #1

Watch this video on YouTube.

Quote:

In this episode, I got the MMC3 banks swapped properly to show our game sprites, but it’s still not 100% clear why. I’ll play around with this and then explain it once I have a better understanding (hopefully Monday). After that, I talked about how I wanted to make world collision work and started to implement it, but it was very inefficient and we’ll have to revisit on Monday after I’ve had some time to think about it. Thanks for watching and have a great weekend!

NES Programming #40 – Attributes work! Yay!

Watch this video on YouTube.

Okay, attributes are working finally! After I got that taken care of, I spent some time looking at MMC3 problems we’re having as revealed by Mesen. MESEN IS AMAZING. We will be using that as our emulator moving forward because: holy crap, it’s so good.

So, more attribute programming… I know. But, we made some really good progress! We have a better handle on loading the attributes and where we have performance issues that are impacting our NMI code and giving us a problem. To be continued on Thursday!
