Programming / Re: Extremely Confused on VRAM Issue

It does not log DMA transfers the way that Geiger's does, for example. However, you can set read / write breakpoints on vram in BSNES at which point it will break in the middle of the DMA transfer (continuing to "step into" I believe will remain in the dma transfer until all bytes have been written or read, then the S-CPU will resume stepping). Keep in mind I use a relatively old version of the BSNES debugger (v0.67 so the available features and dynamics might have changed).

I had a pretty vanilla experience, I guess. I had never heard of video games until I just randomly got an NES for my 6th birthday (I think) from my Aunt. And naturally it was packaged with Super Mario Bros. 1 / Duck Hunt. I royally sucked at SMB at first and would repeatedly just walk into pits and I found the game manual kind of forboding because it was all in black and white, iirc.

Couldn't you have just emailed him? It's listed in his profile. (Well, I can see it anyways)

It seems it would be convoluted & involved to have a bunch of patches just to alter a few variables in roms; to make it easier/harder

I think the best solution would be to create small trainers/intros that could be tacked onto the front of a rom, to give the user options at the beginning of a game

Emulators that can instantly patch .ips files could make this easier (associate a folder that can be turned on/off)

A whole project could be established, kind of like the No-intro project; but in reverse

While it might be more difficult to do, I would personally prefer to have those kinds options embedded into the game. I find the trainer intro types of screens rather off putting in that they don't look like a natural part of the game.

Yoko is actually 14, to make it even more fucked up.

Well, to be fair, the world of Gurren Lagann featured a human population that was massively depopulated and down and out. I think in that context people wouldn't even blink at 14 year olds getting married and / or procreating.

Hrm... can't say that I have. When I actually have dreamed about hacking (or hypothetical hacks / mods of games) they've all been pretty enjoyable. I have had nightmares about other silly bad stuff that can happen with computers or the internet though. One time I dreamt I was banned on all internet forums for some reason. That was when forums were more important to my daily life, though.
