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 ea...

Re: OFFICIAL 5.0 SUGGESTION THREAD!

Super NES controller support. If wired to the NES, you can read the X Y L and R buttons by continuing to interpret controller bits. On an NES controller these will be 0 0 0 0. Technically you could also read byte 3 and 4 as [XXXX YYYY] with X and Y being -7 to 7, byte 3 is left analogue stick, byte ...

If I understand Mapper 30 right, it has a large amount of unused mapped space. According to [url=https://wiki.nesdev.com/w/index.php/CPU_memory_map]NESDev[/url], PRG RAM, PRG ROM, and mapper registers start at $4020 and continue to $FFFF. Can we extend VRC6 audio into Mapper 30 by simply putting the...
