This is an oldie from 2002. It presents everything with plenty of screenshots and a dose of humor which makes for a good read. However, time marches on. The best way to sum this document up is to list the tools it covers.

  • NESticle v X.XX (DOS)
  • NESticle v 0.42 (DOS & Windows)
  • Thingy v 0.98 (DOS)
  • Hexposure v 0.44b (DOS)
  • Tile Layer v 0.50b (DOS)
  • FCE Ultra v 0.77 (Windows)
  • SNES-Tool v 1.2 (DOS)

If you are looking for an intro, or some help using these tools, this document might be for you. Many of the concepts can be adapted to newer tools, but why not read a tutorial using those tools.
