I just checked your sources. Your code is really well written, i do like :) Thank. I need to get the Genesis version of the source up shortly. They contain better DMA routines, since the Sega CD has a problem with DMA timing. Does anyone know how to correctly use DMA on the Sega CD? I was told it h...

Just a supposition as i don't know when i'll be back on that but : can i use your sources to add your functions to the mini dev kit's libraries ? can i also modify them a bit if needed (to keep a sort of "standard" in name and call) ? Of course, i'll mention your name somewhere (i say somewhere bec...

I found it funny that two of us are from the Houston area.

Houston is now officially the center of the Genesis dev world! :)

I mean, look at sega.s included with SGCC and GenesisDev01, we're both credited in that file.

Are you double buffering the screen?

Do you DMA transfer the screen over multiple frames?

My Frog Feast source code (http://frogfeast.rastersoft.net/SegaCDSrc.html) has some routines that might be useful, and they're already in gcc/as format.

* Graphisme : - Tile Editing : - Sprite Editing : Pro Motion or GraphicsGale seem pretty good. Pro Motion is a bit expensive. - TileMap Editing : Mappy is good, and cheap (or free). * Sound : - Sample editing : - FM instrument editing : - FM tracker : - PSG "tracker" : Here's MVSTracker converted t...

I just purchased Pro Motion, and it should make sprite/tile work a lot easier. It supports a lot of features for system with a limited palette. The format of the graphics are quite easy to understand and parse. This should be a nice tool for tile work, combined with Mappy. I've started the tools to ...

GraphicsGale works just fine without registering.

Mappy is a really good tool, can't wait to see the script.

Now, if there was a tool for sprites, GraphicsGale is pretty decent.
