Re: Hi there!

Toy Story 2 used a custom compression scheme I believe and they used a widescreen mode to make the total filesize considerably smaller.

Re: Memory card alternate sectors?

Didn't they use this sector for the 'un-delete' function? If not, you're right and they used it for flagging bad sectors and using the spares as fail-safes.

Re: Compiling X-Flash

We'll have to definitely make an official release with all the needed fixes and adjustments in place sometime. Good to see it being able to be compiled though. That's always a good sign :)

Re: Tomb Raider: Chronicles (Decompile)

Bloody hell, that's going to be a mission to reverse. Why Tomb Raider though. Why not do something more popular like Gran Turismo or Crash Team Racing. It would be awesome to add in Link-Cable support to Crash Team Racing or Gran Turismo ;)

Re: Optimization question floating point

You could also use a pre-compiled or pre-calculated table so all the math is already processed to your application needs.

Re: PSX Blaster (USB Comms Link)

This PCB does nothing. It's won't work. It was just some idea we had years ago. It needs a lot of programming to get it to work as intended, and that is so long as the PCB was designed correctly. It's not even tested. We threw it together in 2-3 days based off of a concept in OrCad.

Re: Sony DTL-H2000 Troubleshooting, Info, Setup, Parts & Help

I'm actually not sure if you can debug from the CD-ROM. I've never tried it (I'm missing the cable for my DTL-H2010 drive and I need to build one).

Re: BS Image Loader Example

...this is how that video screen in one of the Tony Hawk games was achieved. The way Neversoft managed to pull that off was quite amazing and quite mind blowing. They managed to render the framebuffer inside of itself (almost like a camera-in-camera perspective). They also played music videos on it...

Re: Lubrication

What can be used to lubricate spindle and sled motor? You don't lucubrate the spindle but the motor can be lubricated with WD-40 as mentioned in this topic (though I'd personally recommend a light clock oil instead since WD-40 had additives), but 'White Lithium Grease' can be used on all the plasti...

Hello ! There is a way or it's possible to use debbuger with a program running from the CD drive ? You can debug your code running from the CD-ROM drive on the DTL-H2000, but you'll need to compile with the -g flag to make sure you've included the debugging symbol data. It's a bit silly to do it th...

Re: Questions about my motherboard

Fuses are there for a reason. You'd have to clean all the bridging and crusty flux off, check for shorts, find what component you just fried and then swap it out. It's fixable, but he question is though, why.

An object file is not a library file so you don't need to use -l.

Re: PSOne development kit

The cracked disc or the AR codes to patch it have been around since 1998, the details were on a site that was hosted on Geocities back in the day. The site had the rest of the tools on there, as well as a patched iso. Only problem was that the licence info was missing from it so it rarely booted co...

After having received a new fuse, I brought it to the local repair shop.
I can say with great pleasure, that my board works again, after replacing the fuse.
Phew, thank God, that would have been a real big shame.
Ah, that's good. Very lucky :)

Re: Sony DTL-H2000 Troubleshooting, Info, Setup, Parts & Help

A blown fuse will have no resistance value whatsoever. If you lifted the card whilst it was powered on, you probably crossed the 5V or 12V rail with the ground and fried it. From your meters reading of '1' though that sounds as if it is blown. What I would do is use the diode mode instead to make su...
