Re: Which IDE to use?

I might try Eclipse too. Just out of interest, can games be made with SGDK that rival the performance of games made with assembly? I'm making a simple puzzler and have a basic working knowledge of C so I'll stick with SGDK but is it worth learning 68k assembly? I've yet to find a "one stop shop" tu...

Re: Which IDE to use?

Late to the party: I use Visual Studio Community Edition. You can use the "makefile" project type. That's what I've been using lately. Set it up to point to your build/clean scripts.

Re: Source dir organization

Hello! You'll have to modify the makefile. You'll need to add those extra foldres to the SRC_C variable. For example, here's what I have in the PingouinRose makefile. SRC_C= $(wildcard source/*.c) SRC_C+= $(wildcard source/exported/GGAnimations/*.c) SRC_C+= $(wildcard source/exported/maps/*.c) SRC_C...

Re: Couldn't Allocate Heap, win32 error ...

I got scared off by the instructions on how to compile GCC, so I tried something else :) Setting the compatibility mode properties for make.exe and to Windows XP (Service Pack 3) seems to fix the problem. Before setting it, I get the error every second time I compile. After I set it, I compiled over...

Re:

SGDK uses a mingw32 version of GCC, so not the cygwin distribution... When i spoke about recompilation, i meant recompiling the compiler and so GCC and binutils on windows 7. I probably compiled them on a XP platform back in time but t should not make any difference. I was thinking about looking in...

Re: SCUMMVM mega drive port

Taking a look at https://github.com/scummvm/scummvm will give you the best idea. I just pretty much skimmed it and saw that there's a lot of stuff there. I imagine the interpreters are relatively straightforward. It's everything else around it (graphics, sound, input, ui, os) that'll take the bulk o...

Re: SCUMMVM mega drive port

There shouldn't be any problem if you decide to reverse engineer the interpreter from scratch. I wonder if there's a ScummVM virtual machine spec somewhere to start from. (EDIT: here we go: http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/SCUMM/Technical_Reference ) I was curious so I downloaded the ScummVM source...

Don't have to support every game at first. Start with your favourite one :)

Re: Locking directions issue

Considering that physically on a dpad you can't press both left and right, I'm not sure what the system will give you.

You could also check for button presses instead of button state. A press being a button up state on the previous frame and a button down state on the current frame.

Re: Scroll map region corruption

You can try commenting out section by section to narrow down which part is causing the problem.

By corruption, what gets affected? sprites, backgrounds or both? Are the graphics random garbage or just the wrong tiles?

Can you provide a screenshot?

Nothing finished. Just the demos I worked on (Goplanes, the Pingouin series, Propeller).

Re: Testing on real hardware.

I've used an earlier model Everdrive for Genesis and I was very happy with it. I did all my game testing on it.

Re: Per Tile Collision

Simplest way is to take the tile map you've used to fill the background plane and check the position of your character against it. To find the corresponding tile of a pixel XY position, divide the x and y by the width and height of the tile. The tiles are most likely 8x8 so to check an object positi...
