Latest News: R.I.P. Near (1983-2021)
We are heartbroken to join the thousands of people who are mourning the loss of Near.

Beyond their foundational work on bsnes and contributions to the world of emulation and classic gaming, we were fortunate to have Near as a member of the site offering both technical and personal advice to users interested in learning about ASM and classic console programming. Thanks to their efforts, we have the BPS patch format, xkas, and all of the tools built upon those foundations that they laid.

More than that, their personal contributions and willingness to help others inspired many of us to grow and thrive as programmers, designers and enthusiasts. Whether you were a professional developer or someone brand new to ASM, Near offered their extensive expertise to all they could, even it it meant digging into something new or unknown. Their loss is immense, not just because of the legacy of their work, but because of their legacy as a member of our community.

If you are having self-harmful thoughts, or are close to someone who is, The National Suicide Prevention Hotline in the U.S. is available 24 hours a day at 1-800-273-8255. A list of international suicide hotlines can be found at
