The return of Craig.

Since my copy of Hamburgers En Route To Switzerland for the Virtual Boy came in the mail yesterday, I decided to work on Craig the Cranberry some more. Since the graphics for the title screen and level 1 were about the same, I decided to try to make the level 1 graphics displaying code match the title screen. This took a couple of hours, but I finally got success. I also added a mountainy background since there was room in the level 1 graphics left. The mountains scroll at a slower ra

More options

I decided to add an option where the nosehair starts really fast. If you start it when it's slow, it still will gradually get faster. This will be the last option I will do because: a.) the game number must be 1 digit due to the way the score is drawn, b.) I have 0 bytes left, and c.) I can't think of any other option. I wonder if I could make a second number below the first one so the score can be 6 digits instead of just four.

Uncle Hairy returns again.

I got bored, so I decided to work on Uncle Hairy's Nosehair again. Just to see if I could (and I did), I took out the code pertaining to the difficulty switches and turned the options into game numbers, much like the old Atari 2600 games. To select a game, use the select switch. Much ado happened when I tried to do this. In fact, much of my programming this early morning was ado, mainly because I wanted to get 2k or below, which I eventually did. Also, trying to make the screen not jump around o

One-letter book titles: The return.

So I wondered whether that webpage that had a list of one letter book titles was still around once I was looking through various crap stored on my website. To my amazement, it still is there, and what's more, has grown considerably since my last visit a long time ago. Also there is a "close but no cigar" section. (I wonder if I should tell him about the Joel Goldsmith book "The Mystical I.") Anyway, I looked through eBay since the fake disease COVID has made it nearly impossible to go to a huge

Disclaimer I'm not responsible for possible data loss neither i'm responsible for how you will use what i post here. Feel free to use it for your own pleasure, the hacks aren't meant to be unsporting - vice versa it is. There is a good reason why i don't hack recent games they might be still further developed, thus you will find here only games from the era 1978 to 1990. Sure the main reason is to add an extra life or two and some altering to the border color to mark the hack

Fixed burgers.

I had another bout with insomnia. This time I forced myself to lay in bed until I went to sleep after a half an hour instead of getting up and doing stuff. Three hours later, I decided it was enough, so I went in the kitchen and fixed myself popcorn. After I ate the popcorn, I went to my computer to see if I could fix my Hamburgers game that was broken. Two hours later (it was now about 6 a.m.), I hit success. The game was fixed! We had done it. So then I went to sleep. I woke up a half-hour ago
 

Dumping NES games with CopyNES!

It only took me 30+ years of playing Nintendo games to finally make my own backups. Of course this kind of technology probably wasn't available to consumers in the late 1980's and early 90's... or was it? I don't remember playing ROM dumps on NESticle until college, and even then I didn't know anybody who made their own. We all just found them online.

Forget that other one.

I found the most unwanted song whilst surfing YouTube. And it occured to me that I can do weirder stuff. So I am starting one of my weirdest projects ever. It is called "Wisteria Worms." With my eye hurting, I composed the first of what I expect to be many more odd minutes of music. Like if John Cage took LSD. I eventually recorded the first minute, with this in mind:   "1. beautiful man voice says "The Ballad of Earl." Then he starts singing "lumps in my oatmeal,"
