Myself and Tuinj are working on Star Fox. If anyone would also like to help were collaborating on a google doc and we are open for other devs or just suggestions. We'll also take a look at anything posted here.

You can examine our WIP here, and this link allows comments. If you like to contribute personally, I'll give we'll bring you in and give you write access.

Been so long since I've played this or any other N64 game. So far, it seems you've got a lot covered, so kudos!

I've been trying for the life of me to finding address with some kind of specific indication of collecting silver rings (not gold), for a couple of achievements I have planned. Have not found anything yet.

Would love help from anyone who feels like they want help out. SamuraiGorah maybe? Also if you ARE able to find a good address will you also reveal your process so I can learn from my mistakes?

Gold rings (Shield rings) have the purpose of increasing your health bar (and also to give a life). Silver rings (Supply rings) only heal you, so I don't think they are tracked.

If I were to make an achievement out of them, I would probably had to rely on the sound they make when you grab them (or the sprite, but considering this is a N64 game, I'd say that's not doable).

What I do for finding addresses in general is:

- First thing, I investigate if there are codes I can convert to RAW addresses (normally use for this, but also searching on the Internet may lay good results). Even if they are addresses I wouldn't likely end up using here, I prefer to keep them (at least for a while).
- Next, look around those addresses to see if there are more similar ones. By this I mean, you corrupt the adjacent addresses in hopes to see a change of something related. (I repeat this with new found addresses too)
- Then I make searches of addresses which values I expect them to be. For example, searching for list options which usually go from 1 to n (or 0 to n-1) and similar.
- At last, I make guess searches for things I'm not exactly sure how they behave, like maps ID & such.

If I cannot find what I'm looking for, then I jump to Bizhawk & use their search tools, as it has plenty more options

Thanks much

It would be cool to have bizhawk supported... at least for developers (without overlay implemented)

Posted: 05 Jun, 2017 21:10
yeah that's an awesome idea

I've updated all the starfox game page images.

I resized the box art to a width of 297 (tested that's the largest size) so that it won't crop the right side.

I've changed the icon from


I've changed the game title from:


I've changed the game image from:


The last two I changed due to brightness and contrast.
