Re: [Game] PSXPONG - A small pong to test PSY-Q stuff

For now I'm more in a "learning" stage, and I don't take PS1 dev really seriously.
Also, Orion's SDK (I would say shortcuts) are Psy-Q compatible, since I did it with Psy-Q I guess.

Re: Is it worth it to make programs in full assembly ?

Interesting ! Well, I think, for ps1 only, that it can be worth it to try making a simple program in full MIPS assembly, something that already exists. Of course, since we can handle C on PS1, why ignore it ? That is way easier than assembly. It's just that I thought about snes/genesis games made in...

Is it worth it to make programs in full assembly ?

Sorry if the question is already asked, but I want to know if it is worth it (or have some kind of benefits) to make programs and games 100% in MIPS assembly, and how to do it.

Thanks for taking the time of reading a stupid question lol :)

Re: [Game] PSXPONG - A small pong to test PSY-Q stuff

Thanks !
I used sprites to practice how to use them, so might be overkill but make me learn the good stuff.
For now I don't have much time to work on ps1 dev, but I'll post anything new ;)

Re: [SOLVED] RGB LED CD activity mod

Yes that's the 7. I didn't make the MM3, I bought it from ebay, so maybe there's different things. The most important thing is that it's working now.

Re: [SOLVED] RGB LED CD activity mod

So I tested the mod with a screen to see if the game boots, and yes, it does. And when the CD is accessed, the LED changes color. So absolutely working.

Re: RGB LED CD activity mod

My led has the "+" on the middle leg. The other 2 are probably "-". This is a red/blue led. I tried your thing and it didn't work. The red is wired at the place of the power LED.

What can I do now ?

Re: RGB LED CD activity mod

And for the voltage drop, I don't have ANYTHING about the led, that's an led that I salvaged from an old pc mouse. How can I "sink" the current ?

Re: RGB LED CD activity mod

I don't think you need any resistor for that, just put the 3rd LED leg and it's done, I've seen a video doing it, but not on my model.
