Re: Blastem 0.5.0 - Many accuracy improvements, basic SMS support, runs OD2

Screen centering in interlace mode seems to be correct in 60Hz but in 50Hz there's a big downwards shift. You can test it with this thing I made a while ago : http://www.tmeeco.eu/BitShit/XMAS2K9.BIN Ah, it seems this only happens with the SDL2 renderer which might explain why I hadn't noticed it b...

Re: Griel's Quest: looking for translators

You might want to reconsider the name of "Pussy Beach". In American English at least, pussy is slang for a part of the female anatomy. If you intended to suggest "cat", I might suggest "Kitty Beach" as an alternative. I can suggest some other improvements to the English translation to improve gramma...

Re: HDD (or flash) instead of a CD, questions...

Yeah, I don't get that clock either. Even after CIRC, EFM and all that you only end up with 588 bits per channel-data frame. There are 98 channel data frames per timecode frame and there are 75 timecode frames per second. That gives you a bit clock of 4.321800 MHz and that's only if we're talking ab...

Re: Atari ST/AMIGA mouse on SEGA?

The Amiga mouse interface is very low level and depends on there being some hardware to do pulse counting. The Amiga counters can count pulses in a range of -128 to 127 and the hardware reference manual warns that "Fast-action games may need to read the mouse register twice per frame to prevent coun...

Re: Cart to test CDC commands

My reasons : 2/ some commands won't work from disc (open/close tray ?) 3/ I need to test result (status) when no disc is loaded or wrong CD format or .... Strictly speaking you can do this when booting from a CD. For instance, multi-disc games will issue an eject command so the next disc can be ins...

Re: Cart to test CDC commands

Mode 1 boot should work for any kind of CD hardware access, not just playing audio tracks. Out of curiousity, why can't you use a disc? Busted drive?

Re: Subcodes only for CD+G ?

Are you asking about whether the BIOS itself uses subcode data or if the subcode data is used by the Mega CD in general? For the latter, the answer is trivially yes because it's the only place to get the TOC. It's encoded repeatedly in the subcode data inside the lead-in area. What I can't personall...

Re: Blastem 0.5.0 - Many accuracy improvements, basic SMS support, runs OD2

Otherwise my Logitech Cordless RumblePad 2 works fine in BlastEm. It looks like that controller lacks a guide button. You will probably want to just remove the guide button mapping in default.cfg. Additionally, you might want to map ui.exit to a different button if you don't want to use the keyboar...

Since Bourricot made me ask if the hack I planned was the right one, I thought about the BIOS hack. We already talked about it on this thread but it was about modding the BIOS, hack nterface, etc.... What about the all-in-a-cart way ? since we know (look at Everdrive) it's possible to load a bios f...

Re: Blastem 0.5.0 - Many accuracy improvements, basic SMS support, runs OD2

Edit: Ok i finally found a way to correctly load the rom.out file (and so the symbol), Code::blocks is a bitch to setup GDB... Unfortunately, I have no experience on the Code::blocks side of things. But still meet the same error : << [debug]> target remote localhost:1234 [debug]Remote debugging usi...

Re: Blastem 0.5.0 - Many accuracy improvements, basic SMS support, runs OD2

Then i got these log messages : [debug]>>>>>>cb_gdb: [debug]> target remote localhost:1234 [debug]determining executable automatically. Try using the "file" command. When you invoked gdb, did you pass it the name of the ELF file? The above snippet from the log seems to suggest that you didn't and i...

Re: Blastem 0.5.0 - Many accuracy improvements, basic SMS support, runs OD2

The menu ROM seems to display the image with an offset (slightly to right, a lot towards bottom, OS mouse cursor shows the extend of the offsetting) : It seems I neglected to update the "absolute" mouse mode to take into account the configurable overscan. Thanks for reporting this. And when I run a...

Re: Blastem 0.5.0 - Many accuracy improvements, basic SMS support, runs OD2

Ah, seems like I have missed this. Personally I would save some settings file or something in registry on programs I make, to be smart about the last folder you used. Many programs do this but arent too smart about it generally. It would be good to see this implemented some day! Hmm, maybe I can fi...

Re: Blastem 0.5.0 - Many accuracy improvements, basic SMS support, runs OD2

It seems like you cant just drop in ROMs, Do you mean drag and drop? Should be easy enough to add support for. Especially because it doesnt remember the last place I was at, and it defaults to a folder that I need to navigate out of, to go to another drive. It should remember the folder within a si...
