Ok, I have paint shop pro 7.04. Do you use the animation shop for anything?

Omg, I'm an idiot, lol. I had setup F12 hotkey for screenshot on FCEUX earlier in the day and forgot about it.

Thanks Maxim. I can get paint shop pro 7 and give that a try.
I want to try just adding two together to see how it works. Any tips on how to combine screenshots?

I finally figured out how to remove both the objects and background in FCEUX. For some reason when I use a hotkey to pause the game the display options wouldn't work. Hallelujah!!!

I also changed my fceux.cfg file "gNoBGFillColor" to "100" (pink).

So, I'm now moving on to trying to put the pictures together. I'm using Day Dreamin' Davey (NES) to begin with. I'm starting simple and just trying to do level 1 without transposing the knight or anything like that.

My question is what image editor do you recommend to work with for a basic splicing together of images?

Also, when I take a screenshot my taskbar and fceux titlebar get into the screenshot. Is that what you guys/gals normally have or do you eliminate those items?

P.s. thanks to the TerraEsperZ for helping me in the Robowarrior thread. For some reason it all clicked when I reread your post.

I agree that the thread has gotten off topic. This is my last post on this thread and from now on I'll post in the proper forum. I'm coming into some money in three weeks so perhaps I'll commission a broad guide to mapping.

It's not that complicated for you people because you've been doing it for a while. For others that happen to come across this site and want to contribute, it might not be.

Like I said it seems like common logic that if an in-depth tutorial was done more people would create maps and that would be more productive. Since there's 677 licensed NES games that were released in the U.S. I would think you'd welcome all the help you could get to expand the selection.

I would be more than happy to do maps for some games but I need the knowledge to do so.


I think the easiest map for me to start would be Day Dreamin' Davey. I don't know how everyone has learned to create maps. I would submit that if a detailed guide existed, with the use of FCEUX, that much more maps would be created. My topic has 1,100 views so imagine if just 5 of those people began helping.

Just wanted to update that it's pretty impossible to make maps of this game because the items generate in different places each time you play it. Oh well.

Quick question, how could I view the invisible fruit or secrets on Adventure Island I? I'm using the latest interim version of FCEUX currently.

Snesmaster,



I was just wondering how the markup was going?

Message Board Help / vgmaps URL Icon?

I can't believe that vgmaps doesn't have a URL icon. Any chance of creating one?

Map Gab / Other Websites with maps?

Are there any other websites that have NES maps?

I was just curious.

A visual tutorial and index of terms would be terrific. That could bring in some new people and that could only help, right?



I could see if all 677 licensed NES games were already mapped but they're not.

I'd like to request a tutorial using FCEUX for extreme beginners (people who don't know what a sprite is lets say)with very detailed direction.

Yeah, I think a in depth tutorial would be very helpful for noobs like me.



Idk how to do a screenshot even.
