Re: How can i make a ROM file?/Can i play it with retro pi?

The program exports a .nes file, that's the rom file. You will need the FCEUmm core on RetroPie to be able to run it.

Re: HUD using monster pallet?

HUD is always BG palette #4. It's probably going to be easier to just work around that rather than try to change it in the engine. Taking a palette from monsters or player graphics will likely be even more frustrating.

Re: Enemies *not* on tile 0?

I haven't seen this for monsters, but it does the same for BG tiles if you place a tileset 1 graphic then switch tilesets without repositioning the graphic on screen. I'd double check the Monster, the Monster group, and the screen info page to see if tileset 0 wasn't accidently selected, or even lef...

Re: Is there a way to use BeepBox sounds on NesMaker?

Beepbox looks way more complicated to me. Check out Joe's music tutorial on the main Nesmaker page. He shows how to get a song and SFX going in famitracker right quick.

Re: Persistent Background (on room switch)

This might not be what you want because it will remove every "tree" tile on the screen, not just one, but maybe it's a start for you: I don't have Nesmaker on my current computer to say which specific scripts, so please forgive my general wording for now, but in project settings>script settings, the...

Re: MIDI Keyboards

I had so much fun with famitracker that I bought a tiny m-audio usb keyboard to use with it, in hopes of getting some familiarity with an actual instrument. I can't say whether or not it was worth it because bashing on a computer keyboard works fine too.

Stop a monster from falling off edge of platform

What's the trick to getting a monster to patrol a platform without falling off the edge? Is a tile type to change monster state the best method? If so, how do I make it so that only the monster changes state and not the player?

Re: Looking for a NESmaker maker...

Sounds like you can just use the adventure module as it is. You should give it a shot yourself: follow the adventure tutorial up till you have a character running around, build your maze with solid tiles (there are maze builders on google that can design them quickly), turn back to the tutorial for ...

Re: Win Screen issues

Have you given your screens unique screen type numbers in the screen info menu?

That's usually the reason why monsters don't appear and doors are automatically unlocked. Once you get the sword it triggers all screens with the same screen type number.
