Nintendo...one of the most popular video game developers and franchises, did something, on the wii, all these years ago. it may seem fake, but nintendo and absolute video game giant, was selling the original super mario bros game from the NES, we all know this. most of us had this game on our wii console. but what you didnt know is that it was an illegal rom hack of the game they were selling for 1000 wii points?? what?? this is 100% true. digging around in the hex files of the game trying to find a certain music file some people including myself have found that in the hex files one of the files is tagged with iNES, an original emulator for the NES. according to technobuffalo " Nintendo denies that they're using a ROM downloaded from the internet. Marat Fayzullin, the creator of that iNES emulator, says however that both the version of the cartridge and the dumping method involved will often introduce some minute differences in the ROM's hex information. Again, this file is identical to much older ROMs of the same game.
Fayzullin suggested that it's possible there was a contractor-publisher miscommunication, with Nintendo outsourcing the emulation of the game to a third party, and the third party taking to the internet when the physical cartridge was unavailable." this article can be found Here. what didnt make sense to many is that, Nintendo...doesn't have a single original copy? well i was chatting with some people yesterday about this, and they said nintendo could not dump their own game. but most of the virtual console games on newer consoles aren't dumps ,or copys over, at all they are remade with better graphics and more features. but mario bros is a very simple game, but nintendo being nintendo, had to just cheap out, and sell a copy from the internet. even though they deny it all together. do you think they could have a normal copy on wii shop? or do you go with the facts and believe that they downloaded a copy from internet explorer? (that might be near impossible with internet explorer) vote on the poll.

A developer named Tomohiro Kawase worked on the iNES emulator, the origin of these headers, and was later hired by Nintendo for their own NES emulation efforts (eg. the original Animal Crossing). Nintendo didn't download the ROM, that style of header just made it in officially to their own efforts at some point.

At first I thought, "holy necrothread!" But then I realized that the OP didn't read the numerous articles dating to at least 2014 that pointed all this out. Ultimately it is their IP whether it is in an "illegal ROM" (which would not be illegal for Nintendo to have -- you get that, right?) or not. No story here, sorry.

"and [random teenagers you were chatting with prolly on Discord because, of course!] said nintendo could not dump their own game"

Clowns who wouldn't know how to write a "hello world" program in javascript dump cartridges on their superfluous Youtube channels, and you think N doesn't have the engineering prowess to dump their own ROMs?
Oh dear.

this thread is a click bait, was discused almost 5 years ago here on gbatemp and others sources, more than a click bait is a zombie click bait (halloween related?)

    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

  • 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

    @Coto have you tried -Ofast btw? ;)
