Welcome to the VES wiki! Here you can find out user-donated information on all sorts of programming info for the Channel F.


The VESWiki was set up as a repository for information related to the VES and VES programming. Some of the many things we'd like to make available are disassemblies, console or technical information, tutorials and guides for both software and hardware, code snippets, and complete games. We encourage you to add any information you have, or to make a page promoting your own game (which you can host here, if you like).

Getting Started

If you'd like to get started programming games for the Channel F, try downloading the
Development Pack (.zip, 4.34 MB).
It includes the DASM assembler, the MESS emulator, and two sample games (Lights Out and Pac-Man) that you can test. Read up on the guides on the left and have fun!
