dale_coop 144 Member · Posted November 8, 2019 Share Posted November 8, 2019 Hi guys, I am a fan of retro-gaming (in every sense of the word) and more particularly of the NES, the console of my childhood, for which I have a huge affection. I live in France, in the ouest side. A few years ago, I discovered the homebrew scene, a little by chance. And since then, I'm fond of every news, every demo, every new game announced... I know very little about the ASM language, I tried to get into the Nerdy Nights tutorials, but it was too difficult for me (and I quitted at that time). However, for the past 2 years, I started, so I am newbie... but I learned a lot in a few months, I was able to understand the basics of the language and I am now able to write some scripts, by myself. Hmmm... I know it's not very popular here, but... I owe this to NESmaker (by Joe Granato), who was, for me, the gateway/small-door to the Assembly language. I think it's a very good tool to begin with (even if it has his issues and lacks). It is visual and fun, you see the result of your modification immediately... Also, it can be used for educational purposes. My 6-year-old son has started creating NES games, developing his own universe( Kubo, the cowboy turtle). It is a father-son activity, which we practice together during some weekends, or school holidays. These moments are priceless Thanks for accepting me, humbly, in that community. Here are some screenshots of my creations: My son's games: PS: I might post more infos and ROM links about those small games, it I am allowed to... 9 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
