    Talking Snes!

    I was just wondering. What language - eh, whatever it is - were Super Nintendo games programmed in? You know, like Lufia II, Chrono Trigger, and Tales of Phantasia (You might know it as Tales of Destiny). I was just wondering, and since this is about programming games, I posted it here.

    Great graphics, sounds, algorithms, AI, pathfinding, visual effects, cutscenes, etc., etc. do NOT make a good game.

    i think 99% of them were made in asm.

    (correct me if i'm wrong)

    Probably a mix of C and ASM.

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Well we had to write a Color Gameboy game at school and that was 100% assembly. I have heard from the instruction that SNES was very similar but not sure.

    Weeell chaps! That would depend on yer compiler wouldn't it?!? I meen: a pc program doesn't run in c code or even asm code, its run i machine code. Same things would apply to any console, handheld or not. With the right compiler you could write code for anything, in any language you like.

    Nuf said.

    Did you read his post? You could create a game in Java, if someone were willing to spend the long hours making a Java to SNES machine code compiler.
    Do not make direct eye contact with me.
