QuoteWhat I tried to do was create an IRQ at $20, then create a seperate IRQ at $C0, but that ended up making the screen blink back and forth every frame to each IRQ.
LDA $22 ;Checks if you're inCMP #$7 ;SkullMan's stage, and ifBNE RETURN ;you aren't, skip this routine.LDA $95AND #$1CLC ;I'm actually quite proud of this code... I made it myself. Code grows up so fast... *sniff*ROR A ;What I wanted to do was make a routine that activates each IRQ every other frame. Well,ROR A ;$95 is a Frame Counter built into MegaMan 4's engine. I had the idea of comparing the numbers in binaryROR A ;when I realized all ODD binary numbers ALWAYS end with 1. But... you can't JUST compare the last bit of each number...ROR A ; So what this code does, is it AND's $95 with #$1, which either makes the number "0000 0000" if even, ROR A ;or, "0000 0001" if odd. The CLC and all seven ROR A's are to shift the right most "0" or "1" to the left without carry, ROR A ;so it becomes #$80, if odd, or #$0, if even. It then branches to IRQ2 if it is an even frame.ROR A ;Cool isn't it?CMP #$80BNE IRQ2IRQ1: LDA #$1 ;Loads and stores #$1 into $F0, which STA $F0 ;controls the IRQ handler.

QuoteI apologize if this reply got long and... "cringe" worthy with my notes. I tend to naturally explain things as if the people I'm talking to don't know what I'm talking about. So I apologize for that.

QuoteAs I said, Megaman 4 already has an IRQ handler, and it already includes the code that you posted dougeff. Here's what it looks like;
QuoteSO! I modified the first IRQ code to look like this;
QuoteI send it to the second "Entrance Point" of the IRQ handler, and activating our second IRQ code that Disch posted in his response before.
QuoteIt then jumps to $C30E where it disables the IRQ effect, pulls all the status from the stack, and returns from the interrupt.

QuoteAnd finally, at the end of our second IRQ code, we jump to $C30E which writes #$0 into $E000 at Scanline 32.
