History

Early concept designs for the Super NES. The one above was referred to as the "Nintendo Entertainment System 2".
.To compete with the popular NES/Famicom, NEC launched the TurboGrafx-16/PC-Engine in 1987, and Sega followed suit with the Genesis/Mega Drive in 1988. Both systems were built on 16-bit architectures and offered improved graphics and sound over the 8-bit NES. However, the NES would continue to dominate the gaming market for several years before Sega's system finally became successful.^ In 1988, Sega released the follow-up to their moderately successful Master System , the Mega Drive .

Changes in policy

.During the NES era, Nintendo maintained exclusive control over titles released for the system—the company had to approve every game, each third-party developer could only release up to five games per year, those games could not be released on another console within two years, and Nintendo was the exclusive manufacturer and supplier of NES cartridges.^ Nintendo Entertainment System, Controllers + 961.

Vertical resolutions of 224 or 239 are usually output in progressive scan, while 448 and 478 resolutions are interlaced. Colors are chosen from the 15-bit RGB color space, for a total of 32,768 possible colors. .Graphics consist of up to 128 sprites and up to 4 background layers, all made up of combinations of 8x8 pixel tiles.^ This 16-bit processor was augmented with a 16-bit video chip supporting 128 sprite s up to 64x64 in size, three background layers for parallax scrolling , and the impressive pseudo-3D Mode 7 .

Most graphics use palettes stored in CGRAM, with color 0 of any palette representing transparency.[63]
Sprites can be 8x8, 16x16, 32x32, or 64x64 pixels, each using one of eight 16-color palettes and tiles from one of two blocks of 256 in VRAM. Sprites may be flipped horizontally and vertically as a whole. Up to 32 sprites and 34 8x8 sprite tiles may appear on any one line; exceeding these limits causes excess sprites or tiles to be dropped. Each sprite lies on one of 4 planes, however a lower-numbered sprite will always cover a higher-numbered sprite even if the latter is on a higher priority plane. This quirk is often used for complex clipping effects.[63]
.Background layers in most modes range from 32x32 to 128x128 tiles, with each tile on one of two planes ("foreground" and "background") and using one of 8 palettes.^ To play as the same character in two player mode, just get the password from the beginning of a one player game for the character of your choice.

Tiles are taken from a per-layer set of up to 1024 (as VRAM permits) and can be flipped horizontally and vertically. Each layer may be scrolled both horizontally and vertically. The number of background layers and the size of the palettes depends on the mode:[63]
  • Mode 0: 4 layers, all using 4-color palettes. .Each BG uses its own section of the SNES palette.
  • Mode 1: 3 layers, two using 16-color palettes and one using 4-color palettes.
  • Mode 2: 2 layers, both using 16-color palettes.^ Of course, the DKC series pushed the SNES' color abilities to the limit and made one hell of a trilogy.

Effects
  • ADSR envelope control
  • Frequency scaling and modulation using Gaussian interpolation
  • Echo: 8-tap FIR filter, with up to .24s delay
  • Noise generation
The audio subsystem consists of an 8-bit Sony SPC700, a 16-bit DSP, 64 kB[cn 6] of SRAM shared by the two chips, and a 64 byte boot ROM. The audio subsystem is almost completely independent from the rest of the system: it is clocked at a nominal 24.576 MHz in both NTSC and PAL systems, and can only communicate with the CPU via 4 registers on Bus B.[64][65]
RAM is accessed at 3.072 MHz, with accesses multiplexed between the SPC700 (13) and the DSP (23). .This RAM is used to store the SPC700 program and stack, the audio sample data and pointer table, and the DSP's echo buffer.^ The Z80 allows for quicker processing of sound data without burdening the main CPU, for more rapid and complex music and audio sampling.

Each voice can play its PCM sample at a variable rate, with Gaussian interpolation, stereo panning, and ADSR, linear, non-linear, or direct volume envelope adjustment. The voice and FIR filter outputs are mixed both for direct output and for future input into the FIR filter. All audio samples are ADPCM compressed using Bit Rate Reduction.[64]

Regional lockout

Nintendo employed several types of regional lockout, including both physical and hardware incompatibilities.
A cartridge shape comparison
Top: Japanese and PAL design
Bottom: North American design

The top image also illustrates the optional pins used by enhancement chips.
On a physical level, the cartridges are shaped differently for different regions. North American cartridges have a rectangular bottom with inset grooves matching protruding tabs in the console, while other regions' cartridges are narrower with a smooth curve on the front and no grooves. The physical incompatibility can be overcome with use of various adapters, or through modification of the console.[67]
.Internally, a regional lockout chip (CIC) within the console and in each cartridge prevents PAL region games from being played on Japanese or North American consoles and vice versa.^ US and Japanese games do come into stock from time to time and will be clearly marked as US or JAP. Import SNES games will not work in UK/PAL Super Nintendo consoles without the use of an import adapter.

The Japanese and North American machines have the same region chip. The console CIC releases the reset signal to the rest of the system only after completing a handshake with the chip in the cartridge.[67] This can be overcome through the use of adapters, typically by inserting the imported cartridge in one slot and a cartridge with the correct region chip in a second slot. .Alternatively, disconnecting one pin of the console's lockout chip will prevent it from locking the console; hardware in later games can detect this situation, so it later became common to install a switch to reconnect the lockout chip as needed.^ Health and Well Being How to Put a Super Nintendo SNES Emulator on an iPhone The Super Nintendo is still one of the most beloved gaming consoles of all times.

Content notes

  1. ^ a b According to Stephen Kent's The Ultimate History of Video Games, the official launch date was September 9.[17] Various publications from late 1991 report a release in "August",[18][19] with some indicating that units were available in-store on August 23[20] while others indicate that the console was not available until a later date.[21] Many modern online sources report August 13.[22][23]
  2. ^ The acronym SNES can be pronounced by English speakers as a single word (compare "NATO") with various pronunciations, an initialism (compare "IBM"), or as a hybrid (compare "JPEG"); some even claim SNES should be pronounced "Super Nintendo" or "Super NES". In written English, the choice of indefinite article can be problematic due to these differences in pronunciation.[6][7]
  3. ^ While some contend that Nintendo orchestrated the Congressional hearings of 1993, Senator Lieberman and NOA's Senior Vice President (later Chairman) Howard Lincoln both refute these allegations.[35]
  4. ^ As opposed to emulation "good enough" for most purposes, exact emulation facilitates the use of the emulator for homebrew game development and documents the operation of the hardware against such time as all existing consoles cease functioning.
  5. ^ This quantity uses the standard decimal meaning of megabyte: 1000000 bytes.
  6. ^ a b c d e f Unless otherwise specified, kilobyte (kB), megabyte (MB), and megabit (Mbit) are used in the binary sense in this article, referring to quantities of 1024 or 1048576.

The gun body is a bazooka-shaped device, just under 2 ½ feet long. In the middle on either side are two clips for attaching the sight. On the end is the infrared transmitter and the lens, which picks up the light from a TV. The sight is designed so that the aim will be correct at a distance of 3 metres (10 ft). On the front of the receiver is an oval-shaped black area, receding back from the two sides to a red sensor about the size of a dime. .The Super Scope ignores red light, as do many guns of this type, because red phosphors have a much slower rate of decay than green or blue phosphors.^ Eselred's Dragon / Under Seige Summer Strategy - "Red" (v2.0) Tactics Theme 2 Winter Strategy - "Snow" (v2.0) Super Scope 6 .

The Super Nintendo Entertainment System (often shortened to SNES or Super NES) is a 16-bit video game console created by Nintendo. It was called the Super Famicom in Japan, and the Super Comboy in South Korea. The console can display 2D graphics. Super NES games are loaded from a cartridge. Sony asked Nintendo to create a peripheral CD-ROM reader for the Super NES, but the project, named "Play station", was abandoned and Sony decided to create their own video game console, and they named it the PlayStation.
