New Location and Updates!

Fellow Sprites Minders, due to the upcoming closure of Google Code, I've finally gotten around to moving the Linux Genesis Dev Environment to Github: https://github.com/kubilus1/gendev I've also attempted to cleanup the project a bit and have configured the base build to be just enough to build SGDK...

Yeah, especially if you are doing a lot of sound effects the XGM driver is better. Uses smaller file sizes since straight VGMs can cometimes be on the large size. This isn't always such a concern though if you use the newer VGM formats. I wrote the VGM driver a while back and the one advantage is th...

Good questions but I'm probably not the best to answer all of them. Color palette management. You can slice this up a few different ways. I've heard of using one palette for background plane A, on for background plane B, and then two for sprites. Then stuff like the status bar may share with one of ...

Fantastic work. It's great to have other build options for other operating systems. That should help keep interest in our hobby.

I like GENESology, not just because I'm from the US, but I think it sounds better. Perhaps SEGAology to make everyone happy?

Updated obj2mech to support multiple input files. The user can now do something like:

Code: Select all

python obj2mesh.py -f obj1.obj -f obj2.obj > meshs.h
.mtl files are automatically looked for with the same path/name as the .obj file.

I haven't tested on real hardware yet since I don't have a flash cart (waiting on UMDK). I may try burning on sega CD of my test program, but on any emulator I have tried, the bitmap stuff doesn't seem to work correctly so I haven't bothered probably wasting a CDR yet. Anyways, gens and Kega both ha...

3D flashing tiles.

When using the BMP polygon routines in SGDK, I've noticed that the top and bottom couple of rows of tiles will flash. This can be seen by zooming in with the cube example with flat shading on.

If I try to put any kind of background or text, etc it looks pretty awful. How can I get around this?

On that old laptop, hours and hours for the first make. However, you should rarely ever have to run that again once you get this set up. Almost all my other updates will be in the sgdk directory and that compiles quickly. (Note: I did include a .deb of the build environment awhile back but it is pre...

Stef, when using VDP_setMapEx, does this reload all visible tiles, or just the new ones? For instance if the map is scrolling to the right then just one column on the left side would need to be loaded, right? I've got an 8 way unlimited scrolling demo that maybe I'll try to clean up and post at some...

You will need to do a 'make clean' and then a 'make'. I think it is attempting to rebuild already built stuff.

It ought to be pretty straightforward getting this toolchain to work mac OSX since I've already done some work for this on FreeBSD in the past. Unfortunately, I know absolutely nothing about iOS, so can't say if this is feasible or not. From doing a bit of work on Android, I would expect this would ...
