Re: [C] Sprite examples for 32X ?

Well, the 32x does not have hardware sprites (unless you use the Genesis' ones, of course), but you can do it via software; maybe you could take a look at Olivier's SuperVDP or, if you want a 32768 color example with software sprites, maybe you could take a look at my slow, unoptimized and still a w...

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

This is my new project; once done, it should allow anyone to make visual novels for the 32X. For now, it's just a graphics test, testing image rendering, translucency and antialiased font rendering. Later, I intend to make a library to actually make a graphical novel, but the user, at this point, wi...

Re: Is it possible to 'scale' sprites?

Yes, scaling everything at real time simply wouldn't be feasible. It's mostly a matter of choosing what needs to be cut down. One possibility would be to scale/rotate everything lazily: - An algoritm would pick which sprites should have their rotation/scaling updated; the sprites whose last updated ...

Well, if you want to use the new CPU just for Homebrews, one alternative would be to put them on a cartridge; you won't be able to overclock existing games that way, but it could become more popular that way, since it won't require modification of the actual console. The main challenge, regardless i...

Maybe you could try porting Contiki? It doesn't seem to have a 68000 port yet, but considering it's already able to run on various kinds of 8 bit processors with a few KB of RAM, porting it to a 16 bit platform shouldn't be that difficult. http://www.contiki-os.org/ http://hitmen.c02.at/html/tools_c...

Pretty cool idea, but it would require at least keyboard support to be "not painful" to use. :D
