Insert Key

There is no reason for there to even be a numlock key, if you have a number pad on your keyboard, it should be on, no option needed.

I don't think it's 100% the paper either. It's very likely that an ink printer simply can not print good enough quality for this to work. I am not buying a new printer for this, no way.

Oh well, back to google and see if any printers will do*snip*

I just don't understand Nintendo. If there's something that pirates are doing and you want to prevent them doing it, the best practice is to remove their need to do it. Mario 64 can have a couple of cheat codes applied to make it widescreen, and Ni*snip*

Pre-ordered the disk version. My logic is ''you can't buy second hand downloads''. Plus if it's 100% backwards compatible, there's a pile of ps4 games there that I don't play :-)

With the recent source code re-compiles, the homebrew community have genuinely outdone Nintendo when it comes to Mario64.

Better idea, amazon has some 3rd party ink (*!APOUND!*4.02 including postage) for the printer that's been sat doing nothing for 10 years (because the ink was so expensive) which is still compatible with windows 10.

Another number to throw into the mix -- CD cover = 12cm^2

so...
50 lines per inch at 6 pixels per line = 300 pixels per inch ? x 4.75in = 1425x1425px image?

o/k, work printer prints at 600 or 1200 dpi, so on 1200 thats 24 dots per line? So I could do 6 frames with each slice being 4 dots high...?

1200/6 frames = 200 ?

50 lines = 5 frames at 10 lines...
The printer at work is a colour laser printer, so probably 600 or 1200 dpi or something like that, no problem there. It's just going to be a case of sizing the image.

I've seen a couple of blank sheets on ebay for about *!APOUND!*10. My guess would be that any modern printer would be such a high resolution that an image can be made to line up no problem.
