And now two movies of Monopoly for the NES. I tried using FCEUX to make a 6-player movie for some subtitle goodness since Nestopia lacks that, but I can't find any subtitle options with it. So, f00 on that. Both movies require Nestopia v1.40.


Considering all of the Rockman 5 Endless we did, I never did a real attempt of Megaman 5, until now anyway. I don't make it all the way to the end, but I do come fairly close. Keep in mind I don't know any weaknesses for Darkman+, so my weapon choice will be...hilarious.

I also broke the weakness order of the 8 robot masters because I was a moron with Charge Man. :happy:

That's fairly easy. If you hit a pointer that looks beyond a bank, increment the bank pointer (assuming the dialogue is in the next bank).

Adding more spells naturally is fairly simple, though you will have to move the data (and then it won't work in FF3usME). Then you need to change CPX #$0020 to a number higher (0x0020 is 32 in hex, to check for 16 spells since each piece of that data is 2 bytes). Changing it to an odd number will cause an infinite loop and freeze the game.

To add more characters, you need to add more checks at the beginning of that code mess. After that, you'll need to add code for new characters to teach them new magic. There's no room here, so you'll have to go near the end of the bank. Note that any character added will not work with FF3usME. There's probably something else I'm forgetting, too. :isuck:

Gaming Discussion / Re: Square-Enix is going after ROM hackers now?
« on: June 02, 2009, 09:34:13 PM »
I've been reading a bit about what is going on, I didn't hear about this till just today but....why square-enix why?
As Michael Wilbon would say, "flex some muscle and protect the shield!" as he likes to say whenever an NFL team (or the company itself) does something questionable.

It was a badly faked and poorly explained publicity attempt. Still, it managed to fool most people.
I've certainly had enough of those...

I missed pretty much a lot of context here....  :blits:
Context? What is this beast you speak of? :tongue:

Penguins down o-2. I held back my vote until the series shifted cities, and now I'm certain that the Red Wings will repeat (same fashion, too).

General Discussion / Re: Leno's farewell
« on: May 31, 2009, 03:43:36 AM »
i saw it.  i thought it was good.  Jay thanked a *lot* of people, so he didn't have time to cover any in much detail.  but i didn't see Conan's last episode, so i can't compare them.
Conan's last episode literally went 10 minutes longer because of all the time he spent thanking everybody.

I am interested in hearing that John Lithgow is going to be in season 4 of Dexter. That's gonna be pretty cool! He signed on for 12 episodes so you know he's gonna be one of the bad guys. I loved him in 3rd rock from the sun.

I saw this topic and thought Lenophis was leaving us  :omg:
I thought the same thing. Ha ha ha.

He didn't go into much detail, but it's near the end of the first post.

Tonight I watched Jay Leno's final episode, and I gotta tell you that I think Conan's final ep for Late Night was much better. Conan went way way more into thanking everybody that helped launched him, and Jay just did a bunch of reminiscing. Did anybody else watch it?

I honestly have no idea who's going to win this year. Detroit's still really really good, and the Penguins are catching up. I just don't know if they have enough yet... The way they've been playing though, they could easily do it.

Any hex editor that isn't broken will work.

another question, if I edit all of these things will I still be able to use all final fantasy 6 editing programs such as FF3USME for example?
They'll work, but since the names will likely be moved, the editors won't show the updated (and expanded) names. It will rely on the old location with the old lengths.

Assembly. Learn it. There was a time when my knowledge was as much as yours. The thread to prove it. That thread was made about a week after the project was started, to put things in perspective.

The only thing not listed in that thread to my knowledge was what needed to be done to battle.

Code: [Select]
All of these follow the same format
00    = end
01    = line break/new line
02 xx = write a number, 2 tiles right-aligned
03 xx = draw tile xx, seems to be exactly like 20 - FF below; no known differences
04 xx = palette used for the tile
05 xx = draw xx empty spaces
06 xx = draw Magitek name
07 xx = draw character 1 xx, x being something related to that character (00 is name, 01 is current HP, 02 is max HP or gauge, 03 is current MP, 04 is max MP, 05 and 06 are unknown)
08 xx = draw character 2 xx, see above
09 xx = draw character 3 xx, see above
0A xx = draw character 4 xx, see above
0B xx = draw monster xx
0D xx = draw command xx
0E xx = draw Item name (icon too, if one exists)
0F xx = draw Spell name
12 xx = draw item type (US version only)
16 xx = write a number, 3 tiles right-aligned
17 xx = draw Dance name
18 xx = draw Rage name
19 xx = draw Lore name
1A xx = draw Esper name
20 - FF = write a letter (see battle's/FWF's table file)

A bunch of movies!

Bubble Bobble, Super Bubble Bobble (it's 2 parts), Darkwing Duck, and Guerrilla War.

All need Nestopia v1.40
