Re: Iridon Introduction

To test your game on cart, most people use an Everdrive, or a Krikzz Flash Kit (both at http://www.krikzz.com/ ). Neither currently offer debugging support, though. Hi, I just freshly began learning Assembly. Hard task but I enjoy. I could display tonight the 512 colors of the Megadrive one by one ...

Re: SPRITES tutorial on SGDK : need to understand

Hi, I'm back ! I didn't continue to try programming with SGDK until now... shame on me. So, because it's very difficult for me to understand thing (abstract things), I started from the begining and used again the SPRITE sample from sgdk134. I began to remove everything I didn't want to study to get ...

Re: MEGADRIVE : questions about colors

Hi, Thank you. I'm now making a background image (actually adapting a background from Metal Slug). Can we mix in a single palette some Normal / Highlight and Shadow colors ? Can we use different palette for a single background plane ? In a PLANE B of a background we usually don't need transparency :...

MEGADRIVE : questions about colors

Hello, I'm struggling with Megadrive colors. So, information I gathered and questions : - colors are in 9 bits - we write it in the order B + G + R => in Binary it should be written 000 000 000 (9 bits), right ? - for the Megadrive, the different Decimal values for each R, G and B can be : 000, 032,...

Stef,
You told me we can program in both C and Assembly.
Can I do Assembly with CodeBlocks ?

Can I create a program that is calling another one ?
If yes, can a C program call an Assembly one ? An reverse too ?

I just tried with 3 cygwin1.dll files randomly downloaded from the web :
I got the same message for one of them and some other errors for the others

Ah... but I saved the files in a folder on the desktop but as you said it can be problematic.
Going to saved them in USB Key.

What if another software uses cygwin1.dll from another folder ?
It means it really has to be SGDK exclusive ?
What about that information for example : http://www.dll-downloader.net/c/cygwin1-dll/

Hi,
I did a search yesterday on my C: and D: folders and deleted what I found.
If there is a cygwin1.dll in some compressed folders (ZIP, RAR, etc), do I need also to delete those folders ?
