Glad to hear it!. You might run into some small problems as I'm using /proc to find some files relative to the executable. I'll try to improve this in the next release. There are no problems, actually, because NetBSD has had support for the Linux-style /proc filesystem and mounts it by default sinc...

I like this emulator, well done; it works great on NetBSD amd64.
I wish you good luck with this!

ok, so why not contributing to existing library such as blade libs ? why starting over a new lib ? and as I said, I'm sorry but I don't have low level psx knowledge to contribute to those libs. Blade Libs simply wasn't what I wanted a free SDK to be. Very small featureset, buggy on real hardware, o...

If you get the official sony sdk, you can do everything for the psx, there are C library for that. I really love the psx and the genesis, but it seems that the homebrew community is way bigger for the genesis. I think the psx is much more powerful once you get how the system works (and if you are n...

I have found this topic too late, but yes, there is still a PlayStation homebrew community and there are free and open source tools you can develop your game with. Actually, I am one of the main people in that "scene" - I am the author of the open source SDK PSXSDK. For more information, visit http:...

Some of the things which you say have a bit of truth - like the fact that some projects have had their sources released or that there are some talented developer and artists. But I wouldn't say Retro is generally like that. When people (and one of the admins, especially) go to the length of making i...

I like the idea of an "open source" hack, now if there were a Sonic engine in C which is open source and comparable to the original games (open sonic doesn't count - it feels "off")... Sonic Retro actually has interesting information, but the site has an elitist attitude which most probably won't to...

I think that the core is usable, but the video subsystem will have to be redone from scratch, by using the Megadrive's capabilities directly (like tiles and sprites, which are not supported by the Ti89, which, as someone already pointed out, uses a framebuffer). Just like when I did my "NES emulator...

I have compiled it on NetBSD/amd64 but it gives me a segfault. I haven't investigated that much, however. Anyway, in the Makefile instead of calling bin2head directly you could make perl execute bin2head: perl ./bin2head <etc. etc.> On other operating systems, very often perl isn't at /usr/bin/perl....

My old and very buggy, incomplete and slow NES emulator

This my old, very buggy, incomplete and slow NES emulator. But hey, it works on a Megadrive! It was written last year in March by using Stef's devkit, in C. But unluckily I've lost the source code to it. Only mapper 0 ROMS are supported, and to change the NES ROM you simply have to replace it at the...

I heard somewhere that Super Mario 2 1998 was actually protected by the knock-off Chinese pirates who made it.

Also, here is some nice information about Sonic Jam 6, which I found last year.
It shouldn't be too different for Super Mario 2 1998, except that stuff is located at different addresses.

According to the docs, the Pico doesn't manage the addresses of the joystick like a normal megadrive would. For the matter, I tried booting some megadrive roms with a changed header in the Pico-enabled picodrive emulator, and they wouldn't get any input. I don't know if this also applies to the real...

It's nice that you're writing an emulator. How far are you?
Does the CPU core already work?

Heh, once I tried the first Windows 95 version on my 386, clicky . I used my Macronix MXIC 86010 ISA video card, that can do at most 256 colors, at 1024x768 resolution. I had to use 800x600 because my monitor didn't accept the signal it made for 1024x768. I could even use 7zip, even if it was very s...
