Re: Releasing on Steam (and similar platforms)

That's an emulator-side change, so you'd have to include your CRT filter in the emulator sources.

Re: Releasing on Steam (and similar platforms)

That would work! Does that include the source of my own game though? Only if your game is a derivative of the emulator. This would happen e.g. if you create some super-genesis mode with a higher resolution, more colors etc, and communicate this between the rom and the emulator. Then it's obviously ...

Re: VDP Status Register

Does vcounter continue? Thinking about timing frames during a black screen. And if vcounter continues during disabled display, is it affected by also disabling ints (via SYS_disableInts, so vint still fires I believe, it's just ignored).

Re: VDP Status Register

Is the VBLANK flag valid when display is disabled? I couldn't find anything in google or checking vblank/blank/vcounter keywords here.

Retrotink.

Absolute cheapest would be Chinese hdmi adapters, but at crap quality.

Re: Questions on emulating the 32X

Uh, Near, have you considered actually finishing one emulator before starting 2058 new ones? It's like every month there's a notification you've started a new emulator.

The image is premade like that - the lower lines are wider. There is nothing happening runtime horizontally.

Re: InDev Space flies attack for Sega Genesis / MD

It's fine to do whatever you're interested in if it's for fun. If you want to sell the game like some other games before, then you should consider what helps it sell.

Re: InDev Space flies attack for Sega Genesis / MD

IMHO prettier art would be a better target to spend resources instead of shadow/hilight. Players don't care how many colors are visible.

Re: Best tool for password reverse engineering?

Next thing up you'll be creating IPS patches or your own Game Genie codes to replicate your changes on cart/everdrive, and before you know it you won't be able to play anymore, hacking being more fun :D
