Re: Perlin & Pinpin - The Robin Tower (2 episodes available!)

Hi Lizarddrive, I finally had a chance to try your new demo. I messed around with the first puzzle for a while and realised I had no idea how to solve slider puzzles properly, so I watched a few tutorial videos and then practiced with some javascript based slider puzzles online until I was confident...

Re: Perlin & Pinpin - The Robin Tower (2 episodes available!)

Awesome, well done guys.
I haven't had time to work on my projects in a while but I've been thinking about your project and whether you have been able to work on it or not - I'm glad you have!
I look forward to trying it out soon.

Re: Current state of Genny dev carts?

I was in the same situation couchy, It was painful swapping out the SD card, copy, eject, insert into everdrive clone, then wait to flash, then play. I got an Everdrive X7 and haven't looked back. Yes it is expensive, but I justified it on account of wanting to make games well. The USB connection wo...

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...
