Quotethose developers at the time who wanted to make their game had to reverse engineer the entire console just to replicate whatever they could
Quote from: MarioNESS45fan on February 16, 2023, 08:43:37 PMI had seen and heard of a lot of tools that were available online before, but now all of those tools have either been DMCAed by Nintendo, or just suddenly went missing.
Quotehowever after scanning the files using a free scanner known as virus total, some files detected trojans and other malware.
Quotehowever, even running ones that are "false positives", my pc still got messed up.
QuoteI am also unsure if asking for sources regarding of reverse engineering would break rule 2 of the forums, "No Piracy"
Quoteand I also wanted to try to learn how to create homebrew games as well.

Quote from: Jorpho on February 17, 2023, 11:03:41 AMNot really. Licensed Nintendo cartridges included a "lockout chip" which did indeed give Nintendo a lot of control over who could release games for the system. Developers who wanted to release unlicensed games found various means of circumventing the lockout chip. This is a popular subject for amateur historians and is very well-documented all across the Internet. But that's as far as it goes. If I'm not mistaken, there wasn't such a thing as a "dev kit" for the NES because the system is so primitive that programs can't afford any of the overhead that using a "dev kit" would involve.
Quote from: Jorpho on February 17, 2023, 11:03:41 AMYou're going to have to back that up with some documentation. I've never heard of official Nintendo NES tools in circulation, much less being DMCA'd. Even if there are such official tools, they've probably been supplanted by unofficial ones. (Besides, there are plenty of things that have been DMCA'd that are hardly impossible to find.)
Quote from: Jorpho on February 17, 2023, 11:03:41 AMYes, to a virus scanner, a lot of tools for deliberately modifying program code happen to look a lot like tools for maliciously modifying program code. I think you will find that usually VirusTotal only reports trojans for something like one out of dozens of different scanners.
Quote from: Jorpho on February 17, 2023, 11:03:41 AMI would be inclined to believe your PC getting "messed up" was just a coincidence. Again, you're going to have to provide some specific examples of programs you ran and how they "messed up" your PC.
Quote from: Jorpho on February 17, 2023, 11:03:41 AMThat is not piracy, no.
Quote from: Jorpho on February 17, 2023, 11:03:41 AMYou should expect this to be extraordinarily difficult.
Quote from: MarioNESS45fan on February 18, 2023, 12:22:29 PMI meant for when people wanted to make unlicensed Nintendo games, they needed to know how to program the games, however, all Nintendo dev kits are private (for obvious reasons).
QuoteI didn't really say anything about "official" NES tools, I was talking mostly about unofficial, which there had been a little more than what there is now.
QuoteA few months ago, I tried learning basic programming, and found a thing called VCCE, Tandy Color Computer emulator. I found it on github, and decided to download. After a while however, my PC started to overheat the CPU, disk usage was high, and suspiciously lags and screen flickering to black for a couple seconds, and refreshing the windows desktop. I had to do a fresh clean reinstall of this system because of that.
