I'm still having some random problems with it. Sometimes it takes a while to "start working" but once it does, all the GEMS functions work. Patch edit, play sequences, virtual MIDI piano etc. But it might not work for a while after starting, and sometimes doing the Re-Sync Genesis helps (this crashe...

Alright, I think I have it working. When I first start it though GEMS (in emulator) it seems slow to respond to messages but once I send a program change through the MIDI piano this fixes it. I will make a video soon showing Renoise -> GEMS midi -> GEMS in emulator :D

Oh, by the way, I was trying to get your sockets code to work with a TCP connection using a 'socat' line in the lpt1 section of dosemu's config. Was there a reason a FIFO works and socat (network 'cat') didn't? Not that I really care, as long as it works. edit: I got everything built and dosemu set ...

EDIT : Got everything working This is hilarious, I got exactly to where you did, ported your sockets code to linux, and the MIDI wouldn't work and I got caught up in something else the last two days. Your original code I ported must have been working fine; it's everything else I didn't dive into. I...

You'll have to go dive into the Sonic hack scene to learn much about it. I don't think there is anything really special about the driver other than it was used for Sonic and lots of Japanese productions. As far as I know, the 68k/68k+z80/z80 versions are an evolution of the driver, the 68k only bein...

I think I might have some success using netcat to send Dosemu's output to a TCP port, and then use a TCP socket on the emulator end (in this case, dgen-sdl). This or unix domain sockets is probably the best bet but I'm going to try TCP to see if I can also make it work over a local network.

Here's a way around it that that I've used before, for a % b: c = a - b; while(c >= b) { c = c - b; } modulo is C It's because in order to be C compliant the 68000 needs some support code for 32 bit divide, modulo, etc. I haven't used SGDK in a while but I think the multiply/divide support code is i...

Those are really nice pictures, thanks It's starting to become increasingly apparent to me that I wouldn't be the person to ask about what method of IPC should be used here. :) For my own uses it's going to need to be something I can get out of Dosemu, at least for now. I'm already using it in a way...

It was research of connection format, there is now troubles to send MIDI into DOSBox :D. This was the problem that got me using Dosemu in the first place... DOSBox was made for games, and games don't use MIDI input... If you wanna try it in Windows then I can send builds to you. It's vast of time t...

A lot of us old-timers are more comfortable with the tried and true tracker style editors, but there's more out there. Perhaps you prefer a midi sequencer like MusE or RoseGarden. Maybe you prefer editing a score with standard musical notation, like Denemo. There's plenty of editors to check out, b...

I don't need to suggest. I can check in code. :D BTW, we forgot about this is YouTube thread!!! http://youtu.be/2s5Oa_rqMTM Thanks to powerofrecall , without you, I didn't even start to look at it closer. :lol: Excellent work! I will have to try this out on one of my windows machines but for now I'...

Oh no, that belongs to TmEE. I wish I could snag one but I'm sure it'd be pricy if I could even track one down.

http://i.imgur.com/U5JUEpA.jpg I think the board in the top right must be this "Sega Loader Board" GEMS.DOC mentions. Looks as if it is just an adapter of some sort. The top part of the ROM/RAM boards looks like normal 28 pin SRAMs. I would assume they're just part of the regular cartridge address ...

ValleyBell's converter is in this post You're doing it wrong, reread my posts about MD and DOS side. keyword is "high level". No, this is "high level:" I don't have to know anything about the data. :) I am using a named pipe (FIFO) on Linux. Dosemu outputs parallel data to pipe, it is picked up by e...

The answer to both is "how well documented is the GEMS format?" If it is fully documented, said doc can be used to make an export plugin for something like OpenMPT. It could also be used to make a list of anything missing that are available in editors like OpenMPT. Making changes to support those w...
