Re: Unnamed "ninja" game (Dev Diary thread)

Retrostage.net is a great supplier. edit: Krikzz FlashKit works too of course, for that one you don't need to solder anything.

Re: Example of point'n'click adventure engine (SecondBASIC).

Please use some other service than Yandex Disk... After opening that link, it caused my browser to use 100% cpu and RAM was climbing above 4GB when I killed it. Probably a JS miner.

Re: handle multi vs single press

Most commercial games use lag, and maybe 30-40% revert the action.

Re: 3D printed cart....new paths ?

Resin printers produce high quality, and when properly handled the product isn't easy to break. Cost for a printer is a couple hundred.

If you need bigger runs, hire a professional 3d printer company like shapeways with your files.

Re: Tectoy's weird VDP behavior

As in wide piracy? Sure, but it doesn't tend to spread, and more sales are more sales. I don't count piracy as a loss for someone who wouldn't have bought in the first place either, that'd be free advertising.

Distribution on the Brazilian market, since they are more common there.

Re: Horizontal interrupts to stretch image?

It is an advanced technique, there can't really be an example for every such thing, especially with the small community.

Re: Tectoy's weird VDP behavior

the DMA'd data is transferred immediately, but not the data written manually
Exactly.

The program is not stuck, since the fade happened, and the program flow continued.

Re: Horizontal interrupts to stretch image?

I guess you mean stretch vertically? Add a horizontal interrupt callback that sets the line scroll accordingly, and you can double every scanline, or do other such things.

Re: Tectoy's weird VDP behavior

Looking into "why then", there is a DMA update exactly 30 frames after the fade in (partial frame for animation, so it does not update everything). So it appears their clone buffers all cpu vram writes made during blanking, and only syncs them upon a sync point. I'd like to find out what things it c...

Tectoy's weird VDP behavior

Someone sent a video of a rom misbehaving on Tectoy's (latest) clone. It looks like DMA writes to VRAM apply correctly, but those done via the fifo/cpu interface have a massive delay. I can't find anything on this in google. Have any of you hit this? // fade out // disable rendering // dma new tiles...

Re: Papi Commando RELOAD !! *SgdK* - Megadrive

The new demo is pretty fun.

Two issues:
- the C button is sometimes unresponsive
- the enemies can sometimes shoot through stones/sandbags even though you can't (at the same distance)

Re: SND_startPlay_4PCM_ENV bug, starting a new song, both play

And I see this is the guilty source in sound.c: void SND_startPlay_4PCM_ENV(const u8 *sample, const u32 len, const u16 channel, const u8 loop) ... // auto channel ? if (channel == SOUND_PCM_CH_AUTO) { // scan for first free channel ch = 0; while ((ch < 4) && (status & (Z80_DRV_STAT_PLAYING << ch))) ...
