Discord for NES (Requires TAS Replay Device)
NES game that is also a Discord chat client
This NES ROM has yet to be tested with a TAS replay device. This notice will be removed once it has been successfully tested with a TAS replay device
This is an NROM NES ROM that is also a Discord chat client that connects to Discord using a TAS replay device like TASBot.
- asm6 (You'll probably have to build asm6 from source. Make sure the asm6 binary is named asm and that the binary is executable and accessible in your PATH. The source code can be found at http://3dscapture.com/NES/asm6.zip)
Build NES ROM:
From a terminal, go to the the main directory of this project (the directory this README.md file exists in), you can then build the NES ROM with the following command.
The resulting NES ROM will be located at bin/discord-nes.nes
Cleaning Build Environment:
If you used
make to build the payload binary, you can run the following command to clean up the build environment.
$ make clean
Controller Input Documentation
Included in this repository is a file called DOCUMENTATION.txt, which will explain what is expected from a controller input replay device system like TASBot for printing messages on the screen.
NES-ZIP Polyglot File
After building the NES ROM, you may notice that it is also a functioning ZIP file. Unzipping the NES ROM will extract the source code for the NES ROM. This allows the NES ROM to be a Quine of sorts, where everything required to create the NES ROM from scratch is self contained in the NES ROM. You can unzip the NES ROM with the following command.
$ unzip discord-nes.nes
Unzipping the NES ROM will result in a directory called discord-nes, which will include all of the source code for the NES ROM.
