Game techniques

I'm alway interested to read how people accomplish things in games. Many of the techniques can be applied to any game system, including the Genesis. I'll start the list with a link to information about The Apprentice for the CD-I: http://cdidev.tripod.com/apprent.htm Please post any relevant game pr...

From my sources, the flash cart they are selling are made in a china factory and sold localy (to chinese ppl) for 15usd... So its definitively not from neoflash, they are just resellers. I would be glad to cutout megacart price to 50usd then ^^, but it is already 60 for this board members :'(, I do...

It would be interesting to see the GDS mentioned in the programming FAQ. I wonder if any companies ever bought it?

There's a version on Devster's site that runs fine on WinXP (and probably Win2k).

Another option is GNU 'as'. The only changes are comments and hex numbers.

NEO MD flash cart lite first impressions

Kaneda had posted about this flash cartridge in another thread on this forum. I was suprised to find that it was $50 including shipping. The cartridge is very light, and probably made out of cheaper plastic, but the construction looks very professional. The supplied cable includes a parallel port co...

A lot of them transfer sprite lists to VRAM and read the joysticks.

Here, in Russia, also beginner-level home-computer based on SMD is available ('Magistr-16'). This computer uses usual SMD hardware with RAM upgrade, RTC, keyboard/mouse and FDD controller. Unlicensed, of course (I don't know where it was developed and produced). Some screenshots of specific softwar...

Test your code under Fusion, it's fairly accurate. I've only had one problem that Fusion didn't emulate correctly. Reading a long from the HBlank Position locks up the Genesis/SegaCD.

Re: My second cart board

FYI, I made the Atari 7800 boards which recently got used for the Missing in Action release: http://atari7800.net/mini-ultra/ http://www.atariage.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=107756 Ironically, I was going to ask if your initials were B.T. Then I saw it on the board. I met you at the CGE in Dallas.

I was one of the programmers behind Revenant (http://www.mobygames.com/game/windows/revenant), so I do understand the 3D character over a 2D background engine concept. This game seems isometric, in this case we have less problems to integrate 3D models and 2D BG (no need for walkmesh and Z-sort pla...

Are these boards you intend to produce, similar to the Pixel Past (http://www.pixelspast.com/) boards?

I've thought about the possibility of a Genesis OS before. The only real problem is the lack of writable media. Someone should hack up a combination RAM cart/IDE cart with a PS/2 keyboard controller and a little BIOS ROM to load an OS off an attached hard drive =) I wonder if SD media is sensitive ...

I often had this with others assembler or C compiler
Yeah, a lot of tools probably process a file using gets() or something similar. They probably error out without finding an EOF. I think SNASM68k or the GCC assembler displays a warning about this.
