Genesis cartridge

Does anything like this exist for the Genesis? http://www.infiniteneslives.com/products.php It would be nice, for development, to have a cartridge designed to run one game that could be flashed using USB. I did find this, but I don't think it's been released: http://www.batslyadams.com/2013/12/genny...

No kidding. I can't think of too many other things you could want to do in an editor.

Nice job!

Isn't the AT Games stuff emulation on a 32 bit chip of some sort? "Firecore" or whatever? I'm not sure if it's an emulator or a genesis on a chip. But, It appears to be similar in concept to the VT 03 NES system on a chip. It supports the normal VDP registers and seems to offer additional...

OK, which one of you hacked into the Sega Genesis?

Hehe!

I think one of you stole my Earthworm Jim sram data.

Here's something that sounds like it could be useful:

It's for the SNES, but converting it to the Genesis probably wouldn't be too hard.

Ahh, that explains some other software that seemed to work for random reasons.

GrafX2

I know GrafX2 has been discussed before, but I wasn't aware of the ability to script plugins in lua. http://code.google.com/p/grafx2/ As an example, here's a script to reduce the palette in 8x1 cells (for the MSX): http://karoshi.auic.es/index.php?topic=1901.0 This doesn't look that difficult to exp...

Here's a collision detection article:

The example routine is written in Z80 asm, but would be easy to adapt to the 68000, or use directly on the Master System.

The only thing I saw is to use some (PC) software to calibrate the 'gun' but it'll mean to connect the gun to the PC, aiming/firing at the TV and keep this position/distance from the TV to play....not really Plug'n' Play ;) One of the PC light guns had a calibration tool built into the gun.

Since the light gun is hooked to the external interrupt, you can use any hardware solution you want, you just need to rewrite the external interrupt handler to use the solution. Once you have the position on the screen (from the WiiMote/PC, etc.), you can pass the position into the Genesis as button...

It already works. Put a 32x cart in, and it will run, same for Genesis. Remove cart, and it will boot the CD. Bypassing the cart would require a hardware solution.

Tile/map editor

Here's a decent looking tile and map editor, originally designed for the GBA:

It supports tile flipping and palette bits.

Interesting article on VRAM (and memory) management

Here's an excellent article about treating VRAM as managed memory: http://www.gamasutra.com/features/20010509/baptista_01.htm It also talks about a system to swap tiles/sprites in and out of VRAM, and managing a sprite list. I've contacted the author to get a copy of the source code mentioned in the...
