Flasher Folder Update

Some of you prior to April 16th may experience issues with your slimline flashers from Infinite NES Lives. Paul from INL made some significant improvements and patches to a few things which required a bit of tweaking to automatically launch from NESmaker's front end. We were unaware of these changes...

Re: OFFICIAL 5.0 SUGGESTION THREAD!

Noting every suggestion. As explained in previous responses...all great ideas. Some trickier than others. Some, already in motion. Some, simply impossible within the thing that we're doing. But we are hearing all of you :-)

Re: OFFICIAL 5.0 SUGGESTION THREAD!

The other part of it, though, is bit space to provide references for the loader to know what to load where. Every screen needs bytes that populate variables at screen load time to know exactly what to load where. This takes up space. So then, we start to get into the tug of war...”well, I want to ha...

Re: OFFICIAL 5.0 SUGGESTION THREAD!

Lots of good ideas! :-) I'll address some of them. Anything that you guys might be tossing up as ENGINE improvements (different scrolling! parallaxing! Four player support! Fix this engine feature that is buggy! More modules!) are a whole other conversation. The default underlying engine ostensibly ...

Re: OFFICIAL 5.0 SUGGESTION THREAD!

All not bad ideas, though it still seems like even with those warnings, understanding of what sprite 0 is and how it works would be necessary to understand the warning or know how to fix it. I think, though, that there absolutely could be a warning if sprite 0 has no tile under it. Maybe if that war...

Re: OFFICIAL 5.0 SUGGESTION THREAD!

@Kasumi - right...you're seeing some of the catch 22s here. Sure, you could resize the hud, and move sprite zero. But what if they don't have a corner graphic for their hud, and want to use a different background graphic (like Mario, with the coin in the middle-center)? Resizing the hud won't automa...

Re: OFFICIAL 5.0 SUGGESTION THREAD!

@CodingKing - those are engine issues. Not likely to see us create a diagonal scrolling (8 way scrolling) solution...we'd have to rip apart to much of the code to get it to work (massive memory hog), though a lot of infrastructure is there for someone else to do that very thing. Scrolling on the NES...

Re: OFFICIAL 5.0 SUGGESTION THREAD!

@ Kasumi - good ideas, as expected :-) I think I intentionally forced people into sprite 0 learning because of that exact reason...so when they resized the HUD, and it broke THEN, or didn't have any graphics loaded, they'd have to learn why. But I do see the point. And maybe the solution for startin...

Re: OFFICIAL 5.0 SUGGESTION THREAD!

Wow! Great suggestions here! The GOOD news is, about 75% of them are already on the list. Another handful will likely not be possible, but are great ideas. And still another few, I think should be possible, but will have to check with Josh about logistics. We have a LOT to do beyond all these change...

Re: OFFICIAL 5.0 SUGGESTION THREAD!

@Convoy_Avenger - good suggestion, but that memory space is regimented for a reason. What would end up happening is if you started to change those things, the regimented memory space would break down. That would lead to constant compilation issues. That's one thing we did to make NES development eas...
