GitHub - MitchellSternke/SuperMarioBros-C: An attempt to translate the original Super Mario Bros. for the NES to readable C/C++
"An attempt to translate the original Super Mario Bros. for the NES to readable C/C++.

I've taken the smbdis.asm disassembly of Super Mario Bros. and successfully converted it to C++ using an automated codegen program I wrote (which you can be found in the codegen/ subdirectory of the repo). Right now, it looks very similar to the original disassembly and is fairly dense code, but it works! Check out source/SMB/SMB.cpp if you're curious."

GitHub - historicalsource/zork1: Zork I (Microcomputer Version) by Infocom
"The source code was contributed anonymously and represents a snapshot of the Infocom development system at time of shutdown - there is no remaining way to compare it against any official version as of this writing, and so it should be considered canonical, but not necessarily the exact source code arrangement for production."

NES Emulator Debugging
"This post is not about making an emulator.

It is about the nightmarish, overwhelmingly complex, and at times seemingly hopeless task of hunting down the parts of your emulator that don’t behave exactly like the real hardware."

Tutorial series for simulating NES Graphics – BIT INK STUDIOS
"On my twitter page (follow me if you haven’t yet!) I’ve been creating a few very quick tutorials to help people understand what NES graphics mean. I see a lot of people doing pixel art and just calling it “8-bit” or “NES style”, but a lot of the time it misses the target by a fair margin. Hopefully these will help clarify why. You can click on any image to see the original tweet."

Games Console -
"A fun and popular coming-of-age project for microcontrollers is to make a game that plays on an oscilloscope. Partly because I couldn't decide which game to make, and partly because I wanted to make something special, I decided to build a games console, with a handful of different games on little cartridges. I built the prototype and wrote all of the games in 2014 over a period of about two months. At some point in 2015 I went back and built the neat little enclosure for it."

Sega-16 – Sega Legends: Michael Jackson and Sonic 3
"Among the many myths and urban legends surrounding gaming, few are as notorious as those which surround the soundtrack to Sonic The Hedgehog 3. Rumors have abounded for years that Michael Jackson (yes, that Michael Jackson) was contracted by Sega to compose the music for the third installment of Sega’s flagship series. The extent of his involvement – if he was even involved at all – has been a bone of contention with Sonic fans for well over a decade now, and there is now much evidence that suggests he was actually working on… something."

PICO-8: Checking for Overlap by MBoffin
"Notes: This method of checking for overlap actually checks to see if the two boxes are not overlapping. The example above is simplified into using x1,y1 and x2,y2 of each box. But in practice, you would usually just have an x,y and a w,h (width and height) to work with. In that case, x1,y1 would the same as x,y and x2,y2 would be x+w,y+h."

Understanding Component-Entity-Systems - General and Gameplay Programming -
"To wrap up, OOP-based entity hierarchies need to be left behind in favour of Component-Entity-Systems. Entities are your game objects, which are implicitly defined by a collection of components. These components are pure data and are operated on in functional groups by the systems. I hope I've managed to help you to understand how Component-Entity-Systems work, and to convince you that they are better than traditional OOP. If you have any questions about the article, I'd appreciate a comment or message. A follow-up article has been posted, which provides a sample C implementation and solves some design problems.

"Without a doubt, King's Quest: Quest for the Crown is one of the best adventure games ever created. Every element in this game is a breakthrough for its time. It is here that gamers are introduced to the notion of a graphic adventure, a third person mode of play, and a new method of character control on screen. The graphics may be old-fashioned compared to today's titles, but if you want to experience the origin of the graphic adventure genre, then you owe yourself an obligation to try out this title. I think every devoted adventure fan should experience the joy of playing this game, since it is this game that heralds the next golden age of adventure gaming."

"The first known mention of the backwards long jump was in the November 2000 issue of Club Nintendo, the official Nintendo magazine in Mexico and Latin America, which described how to use the backwards long jump to get to the top of the endless stairs with 50 stars. The first known mention on the Internet was by gera2000 on March 16, 2003, when he posted the trick (along with a video) on the GameFAQs Super Mario 64 board, where it was discovered you could use the backwards long jump to get through the 50 star door as well."

Engineering CSYNC - Part 1: Setting the Stage — HD Retrovision
"Instead of drawing 262.5 lines in between each VSYNC edge to achieve interlacing, the idea is to have an integer number of lines which is needed for progressive scanning (the ‘p’ in 240p). There are two main ways of accomplishing this. Game consoles, retro computers, and various other devices are known to implement either one of these two types. You can either get rid of a half-line resulting in 262 lines, or add an additional half-line bumping you up to 263 lines."

"Little Magic was released in Japan by Altron. This game is a simple puzzle game where you must move a magic stone to a goal in order to open up the exit door. A prototype of the English version of the game, intended for release in Europe was purchased by Digital Press user "MattyXB" in 2005. He bought it off a seller in Switzerland. MattyXB dumped and released the game, while d4s edited the ROM image so that it was in a proper ROM format. Before the prototype was found, Aeon Genesis released an English translation patch of the Japanese game."
