Just wanted to say a quick hi!
Former pixel artist that happened to get a little awakened interested due to spotting a Youtube video about Tanglewood. A couple of hours of googling around about new homebrew Megardive games and the scene and I am here.
A Megadrive game (COMBAT CARS) I did art for back in the days:
So what do you want? Apart from checking out and relax a bit.
Would be nice to do a Gunstar Heroes/Contra type of game demo. Maybe not a full game but get things up to try to push the hardware for some nice boss battles.
So I guess I will be checking around (very little spare time to probably just some hour here and there) to find:
- Setting up dev enironment: I guess it's ASM? saw something about C/C++ but can you push the hardware with that really=
- How/if to get the stuff up on a cart and into a real device
- Links to tips and demos / tuts / source of sprite multiplexing, scanline magic and such
