    Huge Picross fan here, going to be trying this asap. Logged in and posted for the first time in a while just to throw my support your way :) Keep up the impressive work! Edit: Tested it, it's super impressive for a first release.

    Homebrew [Release] FBI - Open source CIA installer

    Just wanted to point out that software like Peerblock can cause Misaligned Error's in case it hasn't been documented.

    SoulCalibur V to Receive Title Update

    Casual fans. The competitive scene believes 5 is the best in the series next to 2.

    Wii #2788 - The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (USA)

    Sorry, guy. Scanlines are horizontal. The lines you were seeing were vertical lines related to the engine itself. They also appeared in Wind Waker (Check out Link's hat: http://img185.imageshack.us/img185/4752/gc2oq2.jpg), Galaxy, and a few other Nintendo games. They're really visible at times...

    Hacking Cute metroid NES freeze

    I just thought I would point out that, despite what you guys see in Youtube videos of this password, those are what happens with tiny emulator inaccuracies. On a real NES, or in a far more accurate emulator like Nestopia, the CPU jams and the console/emulator immediately freeze up. It's obvious...

    It's...a remake...

    Hacking Configurable USB Loader

    Yeah, the software both on the site and included on the hard drive has the option to turn it off.

    Hacking Configurable USB Loader

    So I just got a Seagate FreeAgent 320GB Go and according to compatibility lists, it should work fine and dandy (I even disabled the HDD sleep). However, using CFG + Ocarina codes + 222-mload + Brawl = oftentimes hangs at the initial Now Loading screen. Any idea what's wrong?

    Hacking Arc Rise Fantasia undub?

    I watch subbed anime only and I have a ton of Japanese language knowledge because of it. I know many common words and can figure out many a sentence just from listening because of it.

    ROM Hack ASH (archaic sealed heat) translation project

    Beta testing. Not finished product testing. Christ. There is still probably plenty to do, like write up instructions and make it a professional style release. They also may be doing finishing tweaks that don't have to be tested, such as script rewording and art edits.

    ROM Hack Undubing Megaman Zero Collection

    They're all in a midi-ish format, where they use instrument overlays over midi-like notes. So no.

    Hacking Revirginizing my Wii

    Thanks for the advice guys, it's all solid and I'm considering the brick. Guess when I find the time this week I'll take out the modchip, call Nintendo and see if they'll exchange it for free/cheap and then backup everything and brick it.

    Hacking Revirginizing my Wii

    So I was playing Brawl as I usually do when suddenly I noticed the ever so fun artifacting of an overheating Wii GPU. My back fan works, I tried putting the Wii on its side with the old USB fan I have for it. Nothing helped. I'm convinced it's toasting, and that sucks. WiiConnect24 hasn't been...

    Gaming Megaman Zero Collections

    Did anyone notice the stupid chunk loading the game is doing? I beat MMZ1 way back in the day and was going to beat it again, but I'm getting really irritated by a few small things. One of course is the missing oil, that was going to be my driving force to beat MMZ1 again, and the other thing is...

    Supercard DSONE(i) EOS SP3 released!

    No, the AP engine in the DSTwo uses the extra CPU to help. There is no such thing in the DSOne.

    it's better to learn on your own, it goes much faster than the snail pace they teach you at in school

  • Coto @ Coto:
    assembly is actually great, gets you to run everything about 80% faster than C massaged code
    Gift
  • Coto @ Coto:
    assembler syntax is dead easy, but "how to put pieces together" logic requires to have in mind the original idea, and the CPU layout, and that's like double the work of C stuff. It's best to write C first, add some unit tests, then go assembly, then run the unit tests
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    it can run faster than compiled code, but modern compilers are really good at optimization and you need to be even better at assembly to do a better job
    Gift
  • Coto @ Coto:
    with that all your assembler base will actually work
    Gift
  • Coto @ Coto:
    even on embedded systems, without a damned debugger
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    syntax is easy but the code is hard to read, you can't look at a piece of code and expect to understand it without looking at all the code around it to see how it all works together so it takes much longer to read the code, it takes longer to write it too because what might be 1 line of code in C might be 20 lines of assembly
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    the language is very simple to understand (because it's barely a language at all) understanding how all the instructions work together to form a whole is another matter, in general it's such a pain to work with that i would never recommend it unless you have a need for it. don't listen to this guy and learn assembly just because you want to make your code run faster, you are wasting your time, but if you run into a situation where your code isn't fast enough even after you enabled -Ofast and you NEED it to be faster, then you can consider assembly
