Draker Quest--A Double Edged Sword?

Posted by frankodragon, 29 October 2014 · 70 views

For games like Legend of Zelda or Midnight Mutants, its rom size is 128k.  I've been using the standard 48k in 7800basic.  But it's getting used up fast and I've been trying to avoid bankswitching because I've been having problems with compiling errors.  I don't know if it's something in my coding, if I'm leaving something out, or I'm just...


Another Update for Draker Quest

Atari 7800
Coding with the use of banks have been a bitch.  I've been getting errors ever since I had to change from 48k to a size higher like 128 or 256k.  It's possibly my coding, but as I added more graphics, that's when I had to choose a higher rom size and then all the errors started happening.  But there's one thing that saved my butt: a backup...

Nothing is more frustrating when you're making a game and you have to "find" the error when the compiler gives an "error" message.  I used notepad to write code and now I wish I knew about other text editors which have number lines as references.  So I downloaded an application called Notepad ++ which is free and has reference line numbers....

My Experience Making an Original Xbox Eeprom Reader

Posted by frankodragon, 26 August 2014 · 217 views

There are many tutorials describing on how to make an eeprom reader for the original Xbox console and then there are readers you can buy.  So thinking after all the projects I've fried over the years, maybe it was better to buy one.  Problem is I could get one overseas and pay $20+ for one and maybe use it a few times.   So I went ahea...
