How to use empty bank?
« on: January 20, 2014, 06:17:04 pm »
I just patched super mario bros and it gave me a free bank of space but I have no idea how to use it. I want to use it for 50% programing and 50% graphics but as I stated before I have no idea how to do that. If anybody knows that would be great :)

You use it like any other bank. You convince the bank switcher to load your data for that bank and then you tell the bank switcher to switch before you try and use the data. It is generally a good idea to switch back to which ever bank the game originally expected once you are done.

  Huh? I still don't understand at all. PS I've never used a bank in any other game before.

You probably are not ready yet. Sorry.
On the NES, it's pretty much a guarantee you need to know ASM to get any use out of ROM expansion.
