Re: Wanting to start a new project, and a few questions.

-A system for texture animations/CLUT animations: Since you can't just scroll textures like the Nintendo64 does, Water, fire and other animations need to be animated manually in the VRAM. Not true. Look at game Small Soldiers, it uses texture window command for such scrolling. Also look at Armorine...

The best debugger I've found so far is NO$PSX
I find it rather clunky and typing breakpoints manually is very inconvenient. Also NO$PSX loves to crash a lot without apparent reason.

Re: How to debug with XERBA by Dr. Hell

Most probably it is disabled in the release. Unfortunately to this day we don't have adequate debugger for PS1, some of the existent either buggy or incomplete and this is very sad. I wish there was something similar to that one in PCSX2, which can even import symbols if they were left in ELF by dev...

Such a weird gimmick, but hey, even Famicom had its own network contraption.

Re: NO$PSX V2.0 Released (12th Aug 2017)

I've found some new bugs. Some games from Eidos have boot menu where you can try demos and watch trailers, so far I tested two such discs: Akuji The Heartless and Fighting Force. Both of them fail to boot demos from that menu, screen goes black, music continues to play and nothing happens but when y...

Re: What is the best PS1 model to have?

SCPH-10x has better quality CD drive but otherwise it's not great model at all. My first PS1 was SCPH-7502 and it had pretty weak CD holder-spindle, over time plastic in it just crumbled and those metallic balls which keep CD in place just fell of. It was possible to put them back but it wasn't for ...

Oh, I remember this game, it has very poor controls and not fun to play because of lackluster game design. Frogger 2 was a lot better and very enjoyable, but it was made by another developer studio.

You surely don't know what you're doing there. You didn't isolated that resistor's wire so it touches exposed copper on the PCB.

This is not a myth but reality. 90's are in the past and modern compilers really evolved pretty good. You can see it in action here:

I've seen lots of SYM files on "PsyQ DevKit Samples Addon CD" and as far as I know there were different versions of their format during PS1 lifespan.

Wow, that's quite an achievement. If back in the day somebody has told me that PS1 can do it, I would never believe in it.

Re: Writing an assembler for the PS1

For all needed info check nocash's site, he did comprehensive PS1 research and documented it very well, he also made very advanced PS1 emulator with debugger, though it's not perfect. Also you can use IDApro for disassembling PS1 games if you need reference source for your own work, though I doubt t...
