Re: FPGA Recreation of the GPU/GTE/MDEC

What you are doing sounds quite inefficient - it really would make more sense for you to pick up some psxdev. There are plenty of resources for getting started on here. And a console/xplorer cartridge or serial cable is much cheaper than an FPGA.

Re: Recompile Yaroze Source

Could this work as a replacement for the official PSYQ SDK compiler? I heard that psymake can be replaced with an old version of wmake. Perhaps CC can be replaced with this too?

Re: PSn00bSDK - My very own PS1 SDK project

The compiler is GCC so unless you can some how transpile some C# to C it ain't gonna work.

Re: project help.

You'd either have to implement a new engine for PS1 that reads whatever RPG maker spits out or just create a new engine/formats from scratch. Or perhaps someone already has a similar engine you could use. Having this just work in a couple of clicks on PS1 isn't going to work I'm afraid :).

Re: [DEV] - Flash Boot Rom PS1

Can't you just use a bigger flash rom? E.g have room for 2 in your flash and a way to set the "active" one. Then when flashing only allow flashing the non active/loaded bios?

Re: objdump

Would there happen to be any 32bit versions of these? Seems the only ones I can find are 16bit apps :(

objdump

I've been setting up a compiler explorer instance for PSYQ. However to get it fully working I need objdump to work.

Of course PSYQ hasn't got an objdump so does anyone know of a tool that would produce similar output? Or maybe PSYQ comes with another tool that is similar?

Re: Abe's Exoddus (decompile)

Haha yeah - its just logic bugs from me mis-decompiling some functions. Usually stuff just crashes or out right fails, and sometimes you get funny results like this.

Re: PSn00bSDK - My very own PS1 SDK project

Nice work - even if it takes years to complete it will be pretty nice to have a modern api level PSYQ replacement!

Re: n00bDEMO - Demo made using my own SDK

I would like to know more about the compiler issues. I.e are they actually compiler issues or is it just UB in the codebase. Modern GCC has a lot of tools to help detect this kind of thing so its probably worth investigating if its a thing thats likely to make you quit the project.

Re: Homebrew AR/PSX blaster like project

Can you share some info about that breakout board(more specifically where you found it/how you built it)? I've been searching for a PSX parallel port male connector for a while with pretty much your same goal in mind, but to no avail :shrug Brutalizing an existing cartridge is out of the question, ...

Thanks - here are some "interesting" bugs from various points in time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pEaYNU0 ... 4-1c7cNln9

Re: Homebrew AR/PSX blaster like project

Is there a way with PSYQ to create an expansion rom header? or must it be hacked in manually/with a custom tool?

Homebrew AR/PSX blaster like project

I've been trying to learn basic hardware stuff. For this project I am trying to create something like the PSX blaster. At the moment I have a breakout board and have been trying to attempt to bread board an EEPROM to it. Not much luck so far as the retail AR carts seem to do some strange obfuscation...

Re: PSn00bSDK - My very own PS1 SDK project

My only issue with these projects is that many open SDK projects just never get finished because its such a huge task. I think using the same API as PSYQ is a very good idea as people can just recompile with your SDK to use fully open code.

I wish you luck!

Abe's Exoddus (decompile)

Very similar to the Tomb Raider chronicles decompiliation project but for Abe's Exoddus. However this project uses the PC source as the base but its actually the same as the PSX version with PSYQ API level emulation. If GhostBlade didn't already steal your for his project and you'd like to contribut...
