Automap Without The Map

I’ve been asked if there was a version of the Automap Plus patch without the automap. In other words, just the partial heart pieces in the HUD and faster life refilling with potions and fairies. Easy enough: just chop all of the map-related stuffs from the code, and viola. Download the IPS patch with source […]

Editroid 3.6

Since it seems like this project is never going to get finished, I’m going to release what I have so far. Maybe input from others will help me focus and get things done. Worst case, if I never finish the project, at least I’ll have released something. So, here’s a quick guide to Suite-NES.

FCEUX Debug File Format

Just in case anybody else ever needs to know the format for FCEUX’s debugger’s config files (.deb), here it is, based on the source code for version 2.1.5 (found in \src\drivers\win\pref.cpp) and the contents of actual .deb files.
