Don't we already have a page for this?[edit]

Does the goal of this page differ in any way from the existing page: Errata? Maybe it would be better to merge or rename than start another page with duplicated and/or mysteriously slightly different information? - Rainwarrior (talk) 11:22, 29 October 2015 (MDT)

I didn't know Errata existed when I made it. It wasn't exactly easy to find until the creation of this page prompted its addition to NES reference guide. - Furrykef (talk) 10:46, 31 October 2015 (MDT)
Yeah! Link it from anywhere that it should be seen. A lot of good information on this wiki is a bit buried from not being cross-referenced enough. - Rainwarrior (talk) 11:17, 31 October 2015 (MDT)

Bit 6 of $2000 can damage the PPU???[edit]

  • Setting bit 6 of PPUCTRL ($2000) on a stock NES can potentially damage the PPU.

Can you explain how this can happen, or otherwise provide a source for this statement? - Rainwarrior (talk) 11:24, 29 October 2015 (MDT)

PPU registers#Master/slave mode and the EXT pins. Should put this into Errata. —Lidnariq (talk) 12:44, 29 October 2015 (MDT)
