✅ An online FOSS smash-like for the NES!

There is a Wi-Fi chip in the cart, because "why not?"

It is rollback netcode, because everything is possible!

First running concept of the online menu. Lacks tons of details, but hey! There is a big earth!

evolves fast, breaking compat every now and then.

As I regularily compile a big project, I may reference such changes (and how to adapt your build) in a thread.

First entry, right now!

Emscripten 2.0.7: emcc no more link in C++ mode.

Symptoms: lots of c++ symbols not found at link time.

Solution: link with em++ if you have some c++ in your project.

Here is some crossplay between a NES and a PC

It is exciting to see it coming to life! If porting modern games concepts to a 8bits CPU and 2 KB of RAM is not an easy task, it is a very rewarding one!

(If you don't know it already: it is an online smash-like, for the NES)

Homebrew sailing game on the NES thoughts:

Perhaps a split screen, the top part showing the bow from the crew’s perspective, the bottom an overhead scrolling ocean topography map?

Sprites could be used to indicate change of direction for the top. The listing of the bow indicates trim.

Player 1 would man the helm and main sail, player 2 would man the jib (front sail) and crew weight.

Getting the feel of it right would be key!

Got interviewed for fanbyte, about what is special in developping demakes in regard to original games, and adapting modern gameplay to constraints from 1980's

🤦‍♂️ Ok, found it. Add "memory" to the clobber list to tell the compiler that the asm block may access memory.

That was clearly stated at the bottom of the documentation... Next time I should RTFM to the end. (spoiler: I will not)

Is there some guru out there? About optimization?

In the following code, gcc allows itself to prune the "*buffer = 1;" from "extend_asm()". I marked the asm block volatile, as per my understanding the compiler should be aware that this block may have side effect (like reading global data). Also, with a basic asm block it works as expected. What did I miss?

Bricoleurs du soir, bonsoir !
Ce soir, c’est réparation du viseur/support micro de la caméra DV Canon XL1 qu’on m’a filé il y a quelques temps
Un des précédents utilisateurs avaient tenté de le réparer courageusement avec du scotch et de la patafix !

🔴️ Je suis en LIVE sur la chaine #Twitch de Studio Renegade ce midi :

Avec Pierre Segalen, on poursuit le développement de notre jeu #GameBoy ! 😀️

Once again, I completely failed at writing a good letter to Santa.

Should have asked for electric tools, and a workbench 🤦‍♂️

I have a new shelf!

Exactly 1x1: one macbook deep for one old plank long. Take it metric system!

Je compte vendre quelques consoles : intellivision, zx spectrum , Nintendo TV game 15.
Des intéressés avant que ça aille sur eBay ? #vente #jeuxvideo

Hi, I am Roger Bidon, and just migrated from a little instance to the big city!

You may remember me from photos of NES development, like the one below. I am actually making an online game for the NES, with a Wi-Fi chip in the cart.
