This is the index article for the Homebrew subsection of the Tutorials part of the wiki. It will detail how to create a development environment for your SNES homebrew using Asar as well as initialize the SNES and show a flashing animation on the screen.
- First you will need a text editor such as Vim, Notepad++, and so on, so as to write the code.
- An emulator. For the purposes of accuracy, we will be using bsnes-plus by Revenant.
- An assembler. We will be using Asar.
- Documentation. A download to a mother-lode of docs is available in the snesbase archive.
Using Asar whenever
- Go on your System Properties in the Control Panel. Once there, click on Advanced System Settings and go on the advanced tab.
- Click on Environment Variables and add Asar's current location to the PATH variable by double clicking it and appending it on the end.
- This allows you to call Asar in a terminal regardless of its position.
