food, covid 

mildly nsfw 

It'll definitely be prominent that it's a SNES game but I like the idea of doing something different from NES games that have Kickstarter campaigns where they're all like "wow!!! a brand new NES game!!!"

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Imagining like, a game trailer for Nova 2 that has logos for different platforms at the end, and it's just got "Super Nintendo Entertainment System" really casually next to Windows and Linux without otherwise making a big deal out of it haha.

Tried making Nova a little bit more neon, which is subtle but I think it helps her stand out better even against green backgrounds. May also try varying the dress color a bit, or try something else as the default.

Decided to play around with HDMA, and the gradient and parallax makes the simple background look cooler for sure. I found out I actually had a lot of the infrastructure already set up for per-background effects, so that was less work for me.

After trying and failing to get a 68000 core working on my FPGA board, I managed to get a 65c02 working and running a simple program.

I'm not sure what I want to do from here, but I could make a simple BASIC machine, and get some text displaying through VGA and hook up a PS/2 keyboard. The bigger goals will have to wait until I have enough figured out to make something bigger.

forums.nesdev.com/viewtopic.ph I've got my SNES simple game creation tool to the point where you can start to do actual game logic. It's definitely got a whole lot to go though and many features are missing.

I need to commit to some sort of exercise to replace what I got from biking to/from work every day.

Sometimes FPGA stuff is really intimidating due to just how much work goes into everything, and it's hard to share something you've made.

But I still wanna make cool things.

I got everything set up so I can compile and run FPGA projects, so I'm playing with generating VGA signals because it's a lot cooler than blinking an LED. Here I'm using dithering to bring it from 16 values per color channel up to 31.

I wish asking if someone roleplayed wasn't a socially unacceptable weird thing, because I honestly don't know how you're supposed to find people. I just know F-List isn't it.

I liked the Animal Crossing birthday event a lot and it touched my feelings even though it's all fake friendships

Today I learned that squirrels can survive falls from any height, so in giving Nova a lack of fall damage as part of her being a platformer character, I actually unintentionally made her more realistic to how squirrels actually are.

I went on a bike ride with some coworkers and it was really enjoyable to see them again. A bike ride is a good way to be involved in something while staying a safe distance away from each other.
