  1. Part of the reason Apple was so big in schools was the recognition by Apple that students were future customers. Apple donated a LOT of computers for that reason. We're not going to get that kind of market saturation because our purposes are different.

  3. That is a possible interpretation. It does, however, refer to them as distinct items controlled by distinct circuits, so the two 7bit registers / extra address bit reading fits the language most closely. So I did a search, and found this in the VOPM Unofficial User Guide: So it's an extra address bit.

  4. This is describing the YM2151's Low Frequency Oscillator (LFO). Rather than directly producing sound, the LFO uses these waveforms to change the frequency and volume of the audible channels. This can be used to produce vibrato, tremolo, and other effects without requiring extra writes to the chip. There is only one LFO in the YM2151.

  5. Wow, that was fast international shipping! I ordered it Monday night, and it arrived about an hour ago. Some videos. Not professional in any way shape or form. If you'd like to see something like that, you can check out my messing with scammers videos which come closer. This is self explanatory .This is just me going through it from first power up. You might hear some minor background chatter as I'm talking to my youngest child about it. The funniest observation when I showed what a C= 64 looked like when turned on: "It looks like a blue screen of death."

  6. Well, Ken's ending in Street Fighter 2's has him getting married. The central plot point of the laserdisc game "Cliff Hanger" (made from the Anime series, Lupin) is that you need to stop the princess from being forced to marry the villain. ("a man she cannot stand")

  7. Indeed! It's one of those "the villain is trying to marry the heroine" weddings, and the player character is supposed to break it up. Of course, in this case, it was actually part of the heroine's plan all along and the player never should have interfered; that's part of the humor. That was too easy, it seems. Monkey Island came out in 1990. Most of the wedding scenes I could think of off the top of my head came from the '90s. Final Fantasy VI (1994) for the SNES had a wedding scene infiltrated by one of the main characters, but this in turn was only part of an opera and not an actual wedding. WildARMs (1996), a JRPG for the PlayStation, also had a wedding on a boat in which one of the playable characters participates as part of a sneaky tactic. Later still (2000) but still for the PlayStation, Final Fantasy IX had a ridiculous wedding scene involving several pairs of main characters, again with ulterior motives. There are also a number of games where the main characters have a wedding in the ending scene (including Chrono Trigger, depending on the ending the player goes for), but these aren't as fun as the ones you get to play through. If anyone can think of any 8-bit-era or 1980s games with a wedding scene, please let me know!
