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!

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!

Video: NES Programming #38 – More Attributes, And Then Some

NES Programming #38 - More attributes, and then some
Watch this video on YouTube.

In this stream, I got the attribute loading working…er, mostly. It’s loading somewhat but there’s obviously something that’s not quite working out. After a decent amount of debugging and testing, I’m still not sure exactly what’s wrong but good progress was made and we needed to wrap it up. Monday we’ll finish up the attribute loading completely, I believe, and move on to the next topic: map collision.

In this episode we re-visit the level loading code and handle the simplest case of up to 4 palettes and loading the initial attributes for the first fully-loaded screen. In Thursday’s stream, I’ll tackle loading the attributes in real-time as we update the nametable rows. Thanks for watching! See you Thursday.
