Possibly the dumbest SGDK question ever asked

Post by POLYGAMe » Wed Nov 20, 2019 9:32 pm

Just wondering, seeing as the Mega Drive technically has a Master System built in, is it possible to develop Master System games using SGDK?

I'm quite far through the development of my first Mega Drive game (everything I have done up until now has been mainly Unity or just messing about in C and tiny bits of Java and ASM) and I thought it would be cool to do a 'port' of sorts for the SMS but I don't know if this is even possible or even if the poor old Z80 would be fast enough for an action game written in C.

Feel free to abuse the hell out of me if this is indeed the dumbest question asked, lol.

Developing SMS game is a complete different beast, do you know you have some tools for that :

It allows you to develop SMS game in C, using a specific compiler and as far i can tell, it does work not that bad honestly :)

Oh wow, thanks Stef. I had no idea that existed.
