Re: KLog with mega-usb (Mega Everdrive X7) is possible?

There is an example released by Krikzz that may help you - it does exactly what you are looking for, sending strings of text from the MD to the computer via USB and the other way, strings of text from computer to the MD. It is on his network with the source code provided. It's the basis of what I us...

Re: Aseprite Mega Drive Digitizer

Hi Troudki, Sadly with other projects for work that I am doing outside work hours I have had little time to work on my MD stuff for the last year :( The application I have made is very simple and should be compatible with most drawing programs as all it does is send over indexed PNG images through t...

Re: KLog with mega-usb (Mega Everdrive X7) is possible?

Hi cloudstrifer, I'm not sure about the code you have posted sorry, but I have had success sending and receiving data from the MegaEverdrive x7 via USB by following the example code released by Krikzz. I don't have my codebase here with me at work but I had to modify the ROM header to be like the ex...

Re: Aseprite Mega Drive Digitizer

Also I should note, any graphics you need to send to the MD needs to be in indexed format in Aseprite. If you try to send something in RGB format it doesn't warn you and will error on the MD. For the next version I will get it to error out if the correct mode is not set. To recover from an error on ...

Re: Aseprite Mega Drive Digitizer

Ah ok I worked it out. Sorry I should have mentioned, you need to rename the files to end with .zip.001 and .zip.002. Then 7zip (and hopefully other archiving programs) will successfully open the archive.

Re: Aseprite Mega Drive Digitizer

Hmmm I'll try uploading it again when I get home. It was hard to get it uploaded in the first place due to file size limits I think.

Re: Perlin & Pinpin - The Robin Tower (demo available)

I finally had a chance to try this yesterday on a real MD and CRT. I was genuinely impressed with your results guys. I loved the care given to the animation of all the characters, and the talking sounds using the PSG, just like Landstalker did. Truly terrific job and I hope you guys keep working on ...

Tilemap Compression

Hello gentlemen, Up until now I have been compressing my tilesets and sprite tilesets but not my tilemap (plane mappings). Lately I have been thinking about how much ROM space my plane mappings will be if I leave them uncompressed, and realised that I need to implement some sort of compression other...

Re: Aseprite Mega Drive Digitizer

Hey fellas, My original plan was to show what you were drawing on the MD itself in realtime as you drew in Aseprite - as in it would send over your mouse position and colour, etc to the MD and you could see what you are doing on the CRT screen. But sadly Aseprite offers nothing in the scripting runt...

Re: Aseprite Mega Drive Digitizer

Yeah exactly, thanks fellas, I thought the same - why not use the exact output of a Mega Drive to confirm it looks like what you want, rather than any alternative?
I don't have easy access to a computer that can output composite natively anymore. So the MD was ironically the best solution for me.

Re: Aseprite Mega Drive Digitizer

Hi Chilly,
Thanks and that's my plan - when my map builder is further along I want it connect directly to see what maps will look like on a CRT. Art just looks so different on a CRT. The map builder will connect in the same fashion as the socket app.

Aseprite Mega Drive Digitizer

Hi everyone, While thinking of what kind of art to make for a possible project with my business partner, we faced the problem of easily evaluating art on a CRT. I thought of a few possible solutions to getting images from my computer to my CRT, from old graphics cards that can be set to 240p modes, ...
