Re: Tanglewood - now on Kickstarter!

Matt, your work is inspirational. I hope to be able to make Mega Drive games in the future, and your work is like a blueprint of what to do! I'm looking forward to seeing the finished, crafted product at the end!

Re: Xeno Crisis

Great work guys on getting your Kickstarter going and your progress with the project.
All work (code, art and music) look stellar so far. I'll be following this closely!

Re: XGM PCM

Thanks Stef,
I'm glad to know it's at least possible!
I'll continue to make my engine in the background. Thanks for everything you continue to do with SGDK. :)

XGM PCM

Hi Stef (and others!) Just a question, when I make multiple xgms for use with SGDK, which all use the same rhythm drum kit pcm sound effects, and I combine them as assets into my ROM, do the PCM sound effects only take up space once in the ROM, or does each song have it's own instance of the PCM dat...

Re: Make a wish / What if : Genesis

Hmm I seem to remember reading somewhere that if the Master System video mode was sacrificed, there would be enough CRAM available for more palettes, or something similar to that. Never mind! And I definitely wouldn't want to sacrifice 320px wide mode - that is one of the killer advantages the MD ha...

Re: Make a wish / What if : Genesis

I wish wish wish wish the Mega Drive had the things on Stef's list. My order would be: 1) 4 palettes for BG, 4 palettes for Sprites. 2) RGB444 3) 128KB VRAM 1 Is the most tragic, as it could theoretically be achieved for free, as ob1 mentioned. From what I understand, 2 could have been achieved by s...

Re: VN32X - A tool to make visual novels for the 32X

That looks awesome.
I am most of the way through writing a scripting engine in my Mega Drive engine in C and the designer for Windows in C#.
Yours looks far more elegant than mine! Great job.

Re: Where are all the games!

I've been working on my engine, tilemapper and management interface for the last year.
I've almost finished the text display part now, so its very slow (but enjoyable!) going.

Re: Compression and SGDK

Hi Stef, Thanks for your help with this. I have just upgraded the SDK to the latest version you have just released with the new GCC! The problem was indeed I was out of memory. I didn't think it could be possible at first, since my project is so simple. However I dug deeper, seeing that I was only a...

Re: Compression and SGDK

Hi Stef, Thanks for your reply and sorry for creating confusion, I am using a custom build process, which is calling rescomp from a c# level editor I am making. However since I didn't set the starting directory for the rescomp command window process, it was starting in C:\Windows\System32 and theref...

Re: Hellop Everyone!

Yeah, I'm excited about that too - people retiring and spending time making the best games they can for vintage consoles. Kinda like the vintage motorcycle crowd.

Re: Compression and SGDK

Ok testing manually, rescomp says it can't find jarfile lz4w.jar. It exists in the SGDK\BIN directory, but I was calling it from another directory. When I called rescomp from the bin directory, it compressed successfully. So, no compression = 40kb .s file Slow = 20kb .s file Fast = 29kb .s file. The...

Re: Compression and SGDK

Hi guys, thanks for your help so far. Hmmmm I should have Java installed. Is there a particular command it is using that I can test to see if my system is configured correctly? Or is it just Java.exe? Does it need to be 32bit Java vs 64bit? With the tileset, it is 264 tiles. So 264 x 32 bytes is 844...
