I hear Memu is the hotness these days.  I jut wish I could reliably remember its name.

Bluestacks is still pretty widespread, but my Bluestacks experience has been quite poor.  Nothing worked quite right.

How is imgbb ?  I've seen that come up once or twice.  It looks pretty cool.

I don't believe I've heard of this before.
Some people think, with some justification, that romhacks are mostly about seeing how many dongs someone can fit into a single game. But the best ones are far from that. Sometimes they add major features to beloved games to make them playable for a new generation. Sometimes they greatly improve game graphics, or present new worlds to explore. Sometimes they correct terrible design decisions. And sometimes they translate game into other languages, allowing them to be read and appreciated by new audiences.

This book is a collection of good romhacks, small and large, simple and incredible. And without a single dong to be found.

I'm not quite inclined to plop down money for this as I have far too many books sitting around already.

One of many things good ol' Irfanview can do.  (Is it not common in other image manipulation programs?)

As discussed in , the Game & Watch used a 4-bit CPU.

Programming / Re: Unable to Open SNES Translation Tools

If you insist on running those tools, the easiest thing to do would be to run Windows XP in a virtual machine like VMware.  (You can probably find pre-configured packages for that wherever you typically find illegal downloads, but of course you use those at your own risk.)

Alternatively, DOS programs like SNEStool will run easily in DOSBox (though DOSBox is really only intended for running old DOS games).

But indeed, as suggested above, there are probably other newer tools that should run in Windows 10 that will do everything you need.

What an odd question.

How about Front Mission: Gun Hazard?

A little bit of Googling turns up , which looks informative.

And where in the code does it prompt a Game Over for racking 129 lives or more, which occurs when losing a life from that point? I want to fix that, too.
If I'm not mistaken, that happens because the number of lives is stored as a signed 8-bit integer – when you add 1 to 127, the game decides that you have negative 128 lives.  The game checks if your number of lives is positive when you die (dec NumberofLives, bpl StillInGame) to decide if you have a Game Over.

So, I guess you would need to add extra code somewhere – probably a check to see if the number of lives is negative after you gain an extra life, which then sets the number of lives back to 128.  Makes sense?

Because it shows you where the brick will drop.
There are many, many other variants with that feature, though off the top of my head I could not tell you which ones they are.

And my favorite Tetris on the NES is Tetris Bombliss:
Squishing the bugs in the Game Boy version was quite satisfying.

Lol I don't know what games will be on it, but I know what game most likely won't be on it- E.T.

The game that they single-handedly held responsible for the crash of the videogame market in the '80s.
Since the game is that famous, I expect they would sell more units if they could include it.  But such titles are often produced under a limited license and I doubt they could easily negotiate for its re-release.

Wasn't there an Acekard or something for the original DS that included an extra CPU and provided entirely adequate SNES emulation?  And don't those still work on an unmodified 3DS?  (I'm slightly tempted to pick one of those up.)

Indie games like Shovel Knight or Steamworld Dig have surely been much cheaper on Steam than they have ever been on consoles, haven't they?

If you bought physical, you could sell the game later and recoup some of the initial cost or make a profit (under unusual circumstances).
EB Games/Gamestop will give you a pittance, and trying to work something out on eBay/Kijiji/Craigslist is often more trouble than it's worth, even if you're lucky enough never to have to deal with a crazy person.

I doubt it.

You should be able to edit the sprites with any old tile editor, though.

It's a nice-looking box, I'll give it that.  But considering the dismal failure of the Ouya or even of "Steam Machines", it seems unlikely there is much room in the market for something like this.

People have also been able to extract the character models, with amusing results.

Newcomer's Board / Re: Best base ROM for a Pokemon hack
« on: July 12, 2017, 11:25:45 pm »
It depends on what exactly you want to do.  Many of the Pokemon games have game-specific utilities that can be used to modify them, but experience with game-specific utilities will probably not help you if you want to do more extensive hacking later.

3DS homebrew has come a long way, I'd say chances of bricks and bans are minimal as long as you follow instructions and respect online play.
There was a huge, sweeping ban just a couple of weeks ago.
