  • Tutorials/Homebrew: this will cover how to create the setup environment for using asar and batch tools. Then initialize the SNES and display a simple flashing color animation on the screen. Then it will have an index for the other articles.
  • Tutorials/Homebrew/Graphics: how to convert some images to the SNES format and display a background using Mode 3 (8BPP).
  • Tutorials/Homebrew/Sprites: how to set up the OAM and display a few static sprites at random positions at bootup.
  • Tutorials/Homebrew/Controllers: how to read controllers using auto joypad and start moving the sprites from the previous part.
  • Tutorials/Homebrew/Top-Down View: creating a basic top-down view using a static 256x256 background, where you have a simple walkable tile and a solid tile.
  • Tutorials/Homebrew/Top-Down with Scrolling: expand to a 512x512 background and introduce the basic background scrolling principles. Together that, introduce the basic camera principles and make a system for sprites only appearing when they are on screen.
  • Tutorials/Homebrew/Multiple Scenes: let's create more block types. Now we have a teleport block where we can switch to another scene. That will teach how to load/unload scenes at real time and teach initial positioning of sprites.
