Re: "The Question" ported to 32X

Well it works fine with Mega Everdrive X7 and US model 1 with US 32X on top so either its a minor issue or Mega Everdrive is magic

Re: handle multi vs single press

There is no one way to handle this I believe, but it depends on the game. The way I would do it, is check for A+B+C, and if its pressed, have some code to cancel the current attack or whatever is happening. It would help if the kick animation starts a little slower and finishes fast, so its not near...

Re: Blastem 0.5.0 - Many accuracy improvements, basic SMS support, runs OD2

The tiles from PlaneW are appearing on PlaneA, instead of PlaneA repeating the tiles in a glitchy way. I have taken a screenshot from hardware illustrating how it should look like;

Re: Blastem 0.5.0 - Many accuracy improvements, basic SMS support, runs OD2

It looks like it runs hacks now much better, but I did find another bug:

PlaneA seems to fetch wrong tiles here. On hardware that second line of monitor art is not there, its just PlaneA bugging out instead. (and to clarify, the monitor tiles are PlaneW)

Re: Sonic 3 stuck sound under waterfall

I am guessing you mean you are making a custom emulator and having this issue? No, I've never seen this happen, not on hardware nor any emulators. It is probably a timing related issue, like h-ints which are stopping Z80 for a few scanlines, which could cause issues... I would definitely see what ha...

Re: Console freezes when reset

Also something that is at the very least possible, is trying to wait for Z80 to stop when its not in a correct state, I remember getting this issue frequently when ROMs do not properly reset/initialize

Re: What I got so far, and HELP! :)

What Stef explained is what generally ALL games did and do still. But to explain in closer detail, your camera is basically the "virtual" position for everything. Sprites, planes, scrolling, everything is based on this camera, or sometimes some calculation that takes the camera as input. In your cod...

Re: SPRITES

You probably can't really do really fancy effects and complex games such as Sonic or Aladdin, but definitely simpler games could be done. In fact, Sonic Spinball was written completely in C, and I assume its very old compiler, not sure of GCC or something else, but probably not even nearly as good a...

Re: Atari ST/AMIGA mouse on SEGA?

Also gaming mice with way more than 4 buttons are actually fairly cheap nowadays. Sure, you are getting a shit mouse, but its not like you can use it to its full potential on a system thats almost 30 years old... :P

Re: Blastem 0.5.0 - Many accuracy improvements, basic SMS support, runs OD2

I think its more about how small the menu items are combined at the faster speed which makes it difficult, as well as the next/prev buttons, those are kinda awkward honestly
