WLA DX v9.4a (08-04-2008) (NES misc)

WLA DX has stagnated a lot recently but there has been progress since the last time (November 2006). WLA DX is a Macro Assembler Package for GB-Z80/Z80/6502/65C02/6510/65816/HUC6280/SPC-700 and was written by Ville Helin.


– data filtering macros (looks useful for non-standard string encoding)
– Mersenne Twister random numbers (not that you’d use them much at compile-time)
– Label and line number bugfixes

Mom my ears are bleeding (NES Musicdisk)

Here comes a musicdisk for NES by mic_

Release notes:

This is a collection of covers/remixes I’ve put together for the NES using ppmck. There’s only a PAL version right now, but perhaps I’ll add an NTSC version later with adjusted song tempos. I’m using a PowerPak and a real NES, but you can use Nintendulator, FCE Ultra or any decent emulator that has a PAL emulation mode.
The reason the ROM is so bloated is that a couple of the tracks were a bit tricky to fit inside 16kB, so I decided to use 32kB for all of them. 5*32 rounded up to the nearest power of two becomes 256kB, so there you go..
Use up/down to select a song and button A or B to start playing it. Happy listening.
