QuoteI thought I saw something about a SRAM option but I'm not sure.
Quote from: Bregalad on December 19, 2012, 05:30:09 PMIt is not easy but possible to have a timing loop that works even when DMC is enabled. For that you need to determine whether DMC is enabled by reading $4015, and kill some extra cycles if it's disabled, to compensate for this fact. However to get it right you'd probably need a lot of trial and error - just to say this is perfectly possible without a mapper IRQ.
QuoteThe only solution is to make sure that it never lags, that is the calculations are always finished before the frame.Of course you can only do the calculations during the "fifth piece", which makes it very challenging. You should probably just optimize the assembly code that does the logic, etc... to take minimal time. You could do it in the other pieces if the calculation time is constant, but then it will be incompatible with the DMC compensation.

Another good addition would be either to have a moving cursor, or be able to use the dpad to move the position and see where everything is at. Say moving left highlights the location to the left such as a town or forrest. Then it'd show the name and you'd know how to get there. You could move all over the map to see where something is and you wouldnt have to walk somewhere to know where a location is.
Quote from: MathUser2929 on December 19, 2012, 08:17:14 PMIf you have the available colors you should really turn those dots red or some other prominent color. The color you are using don't stand out at all. If you have the available tiles add a box around where the cursor is right then too. Also red.

Quote from: elbobelo on December 19, 2012, 09:34:01 PMSomething that struck me when playing. The signs in town read "Left" to here and "Right" to there. It would make more since if these read "West" and "East". Especially since the new map also follows these directions.

Quote from: optomon on December 20, 2012, 02:25:04 AMAs someone with multiple major products involving the CV2 engine, I could make use of these adjustments. I remember finding and debugging a glitch that made the game display the incorrect colors at times, but I lost my notes on it in a flash drive failure before I enacted on it, and started avoiding the glitch by avoiding certain palette patterns (which is apparently something the designers of the game did when making CV2).The game slows a lot while scrolling and a bunch of sprites are on screen, but this could be like any normal NES game's problem. But also likely, I'm adding a crap load of code that slows down the game.
Quote from: Bregalad on December 20, 2012, 06:35:44 AMI don't know if you got this working, but if you did it's really great. Keep in mind most emus will be inaccurate and will not simulate the DMC stealing cycles to the CPU. Only Nestopia and Nintendulator might emulate this correctly. I'm even pretty sure they only emulate NTSC correctly and have off-timings for PAL. I can always test whatever with my powerpak, as I have both a NTSC and PAL console, if this can be handy.
Quote from: keropi on December 20, 2012, 09:02:08 AMI just finished building a mmc-3 based test cart with sockets made a mistake on the prg pins 30-31-32 but I was too bored atm to fix it, for now I just burned 1.27 and got it working just fine with some quick'n'dirty soldering
