Pandora's Box / Our Christmas present to you
« on: December 10, 2007, 02:21:55 AM »
Ok everybody. In the spirit of Christmas, we've decided to reveal something new to everybody. However, we were completely torn in what to reveal, so we leave the decision of what to reveal up to you. You have 6 choices, and the polls will be open until Christmas Eve, so don't slack off now.

For those that may not know assembly, I'll give you what I believe this is doing.

Code: [Select]

This is changing the Direct Page register to look at xx/4200. You might already see where this is going, but for those that don't... It gets funky.

Code: [Select]
$01/81F1 85 04       STA $04    [$00:4204]   A:0061 X:4200 Y:0007 D:4200 DB:7E S:02E1 P:envmxdIzCHC:0328 VC:115 00 FL:00

This, believe it or not, is storing to the hardware registers to do math, in this case I think division. I don't know if it's 97 divided by 100 or 100 divided by 97. In any event, the game is changing the DP register to do math. Completely unnecessary. :sad: Now I know why JCE thinks this game is a coding disaster. It is a coding disaster. :bah:

Let the fun continue...

Slick News / Minor overhaul complete
« on: December 04, 2007, 10:39:27 PM »
Beware, Lenophis (that's me!) has been ambitious lately. There's been a minor tweak to the news system. To honor the event, there's some slight news. bucky has sent in NSFE's, Asterix and Zombie Nation. Enjoy! :happy:

The old news is still accessible in the News Archive, so if you need it it's still there for ya.

General Discussion / Frank TV
« on: November 21, 2007, 01:13:10 AM »
I managed to catch the premiere tonight, and I must say I was impressed with it. It's a little gimmicky, but there's enough comedy to make up for that. Did anybody else catch it?

General Discussion / Soundtrack haxxing
« on: November 19, 2007, 02:12:35 PM »
I recently came upon the FF3DS soundtrack, and for reasons of legality, I will not disclose the location. However, there is one thing that has always irked me about soundtracks. Dammit people, make the songs play twice! :bah:

So, I decided to take it upon myself to do so for one song, and I dare you to guess which song it is! Yeah, you can just look at the URL, but come on, would ya do that? Ok, I guess you would.

In any event, this song is too good to not play twice. :happy:
