• Hey, Guest!

    XenForo 2.2 is coming soon, it's bringing many new features such as a PWA app for OG etc. It also comes with the drawback of more costs to update themes/some addons. It'll also remove access to some older browsers which'll suck but these shouldn't be used as their security sucks.

    With the costs already looming we decided to improve OG's look with a new fancy theme that gives OG a more gamer feel. This has cost us only slightly more than it would have cost to renew the current theme and runs alot nicer.

    You can beta test it here: Linky. (Please note only dark is live, light will come once issues are ironed out.)

    If the current theme breaks on update we will end of life it, but we'll make something looking similar based on the default free theme so don't fret!

Hi everyone!

My name is Michiel and I joined Assembler Games many years ago because I was (always have been, and still am) interested in console games and technology. I joined Obscure Gamers last year when Assembler Games was closed.

My first console was a Super Nintendo, and I remember the games were very expensive. I had saved enough money for 1 game, Actraiser, which I played for about 6 months straight. Then I got a paper route to earn money to buy more games. That summer I ended up buying a Super Wild Card, a device with which I could play Super Nintendo games from floppy disks. This allowed me to play games that would otherwise have not been accessible to me, like Final Fantasy, and Macross: Scrambled Valkyrie.

Over the years I've owned many video game consoles, PlayStations, Dreamcast, Game Boy Advance, and even an imported NEC PC-FX. All are gone now, but I did get a Super Nintendo again, as well as a Super Wild Card. This time I'm discovering some of the great games I never played when I was young, like Super Metroid and Earthbound. I'm planning to play The Firemen next, because it looks like a fun game.

I am a professional software developer, and I did spend some time trying to understand how to program for the Super Nintendo. I managed to get some simple things working, and documented as much as I could. You can find the code and documentation here:

https://github.com/michielvoo/Super/wiki

Long story short: I am still interested in the Super Nintendo after all these years, and I joined to learn as much as I can about its history and the interesting hardware that was available for it.

// Gr. Michiel

welcome! the real hardware is really hard to use because most stuff is japan only depending on the sfc PC-98. But there is DOS software. If you interested to get software on the real hardware working contact me, im more hardware guy with some software/hardware. But i have also some software dev education but dont use in work day, I really love to get more SNES/SFC dev going on. I focused at sound dev atm

Hello Jackhead!

Thanks! Some years ago I managed to write some simple programs in assembly. All of them worked in bsnes, but not all of them worked on real hardware (I was using a Super Wild Card to test). I stopped working on the project then.

But last year I got the debugger and got that working. It was my intention to use the debugger to fix the programs so they would work on the real hardware. But my programs were written for the WLA assembler, so I will have to 'translate' them. I haven't done that yet because that work seems boring... :rolleyes:

Lately I find myself mostly interested in back-up devices, and I managed to find a few. Besides that I want to learn more about electronics, so I can understand the hardware side better. But I will return to the assembly code for sure, just maybe not this year. When I do I will let you know for sure!

Please let me know if you need help with the programming side.
