For sure I will contact anyone with experience in the topic. But I'm holding my horses for now :D

Re: Releasing on Steam (and similar platforms)

And how about using my own CRT filter? I would have no problem releasing the filter with the same license as the emulator, but I think it would not affect the game either, right?

Re: Releasing on Steam (and similar platforms)

Of course, I wasn't really hurt, just being playful :D I've been a hobbyist for ten years, I estimate. And having an intense case of ADHD means finishing any project is a herculean project, and games are notoriously difficult projects. My projects usually stop at the level design and story developme...

Re: Releasing on Steam (and similar platforms)

Read the license. GPL allows selling, you just have to distribute the source to the emulator including any modifications you did to it. edit: GPLv3 would prevent some of the more evil DRM, but I think you can choose the DRM level when sending something to steam. That would work! Does that include t...

Releasing on Steam (and similar platforms)

I am interested in commercializing my game when/if it's done. But I often wonder how to do that. I don't even care about widescreen or trophies and that kind of stuff, but just having a portable emulator where the user can just run and play would be great! There are tons of emulators out there but t...

Re: Aseprite Mega Drive Digitizer

This is aweseome! Well, not particularly useful for me since I don't have a setup with a megadrive and a CRT next to my workstation. But I am working on a MD game and it's cool to see other people going through the same issues I'm having. We can all trade tricks and scripts. My main problem right no...

Workflow to import extra data into the project

Hi all A while ago I made a python script that takes as input Tiled json files and outputs a sequence of C lines of code I can paste in a header of my project, for example: const ROMEntity ALLENTITIES [2] ={ {3, 0, 0, 0, 0, TRUE, 2, 1, 4, 1}, {5, 2, 1, 0, 0, TRUE, 2, 1, 15, 1} }; const Room ALLROOMS...

Re: RESCOMP and individual nametable entries?

Do you have more details how to set priority bit with aseprite? Just choose the colors from the palette! they are ordered. You want to repeat the first 16 colors at 128th position. I wrote an Aseprite script that makes my life easier a little. I work in two layers, one is background the other is fo...

Re: RESCOMP and individual nametable entries?

In retro dev "not an easy way of doing it" is the norm. SGDK is the one spoiling us with convenience :lol: Anyway, my first instinct was to immediately try to index the colors in aseprite (pixel editor). But rescomp did not appreciate that "pixel at [56,0] reference a different priority." EDIT: oops...

Re: RESCOMP and individual nametable entries?

No unfortunately you can't encode priority inside the image so rescomp can decode it. The way to do is to have 2 images, one for low priority and one for high priority then you combine both images map. You generate a new map out of it by using : if (*mapHigh) *map = *mapHigh | TILE_ATTR_PRIORITY_MA...

Re: The small-questions-not-worth-dedicated-topics topic

Here is my first one. I understand we use const to save data to the rom. But if I need to have a writable version of it in runtime, is there a proper way of doing things or do I just create a new variable and copy the values from a to b? Don't do that, you're making it worst. Use "const" for data t...

Oh shoot! I didn't get a notification and just assumed no one replied. Thank you for taking the time to explain these things to me.

Gendev getting started help

Hi all Every now and then I like to play around with SGDK, as it's the perfect light weight kind of project that my laptop can handle. I would, however, like to move completely to linux. My laptop has dual boot but I would prefer to stay on linux. However, setting up gendev is proving to be harder t...
