Action Replay help for newbies

OK, so I am going to attempt to play my PS1 game I'm making on my unmodded PS1. I can use Action Replay to do this. I'm wondering which version of Action Replay I should buy. For example, will this one on eBay work (auction #201312929220)? Or would I need a different one? Also, how do I go about "sw...

Re: Loading screens?

OK, so if the Playstation is loading info the screen goes blank then. I've always wondered why no N64 games had a loading screen while PSX games did. I assume it is faster when it is cartridge based as opposed to disc based.

Loading screens?

I got to thinking about loading screens. Every PS1 game has one. I was just wondering when you would need to put one in, or if my Jack and the Beanstalk game needs any at all.

Re: VAG Example (VAG DEMO)

I must have something missing, like some file I need to make a program with sound. I compiled Fly Little Bat, and it doesn't have any sound in it.

Re: Newbie wanting help

Nothing real exciting going on right now, just Jack walking among the trees. I tested this in PS7 and everything works fine, so I wonder what is going on with PSIO.

Re: Newbie wanting help

So I was going to ask for help with collision detection when I thought it out and I think this works OK. Took me at least a couple of hours, though. Link to the latest version is in my signature.

I didn't know you would need the .h file. I've added it on the website.

Re: Newbie wanting help

What nobody told me is I had to define each tree copy as its own sprite. If I do this, then why bother with the array and just define each tree with the treea.x and treea.y variables? I guess I could see where an array would come in handy for each screen, but I just did what I did for now. So I gues...

Re: Newbie wanting help

I've tried a lot of stuff and nothing seems to do anything. The best I could do was get five trees flashing, but I don't want them to do that, I want them to be all on the screen at once. Or is there a limit to how many sprites can be on the screen at one time? Link to my code is here: http://www.at...

Re: Newbie wanting help

So I tried doing this: for(treea.x=-10;treea.x<200;treea.x=treea.x+40) { // if the tree is off the screen, update the position if (treea.x == 30) { treea.x = treesxscreen1[0]; treea.y = treesxscreen1[0]; } if (treea.x == 70) { treea.x = treesxscreen1[1]; treea.y = treesxscreen1[1]; } if (treea.x == ...

If I try to do any for statement beginning with for(;;) the game freezes.

Re: Newbie wanting help

Well, even if I do this, it still displays one tree: treea.x = treesxscreen1[0]; // draw at x coord 0 treea.y = treesxscreen1[0]; // draw at y coord 0 treea.x = treesxscreen1[1]; // draw at x coord 0 treea.y = treesxscreen1[1]; treea.x = treesxscreen1[2]; // draw at x coord 0 treea.y = treesxscreen1...

Re: Newbie wanting help

I learned about arrays, I think I learned how to understand them, but what I don't understand is how to make multiple copies(in this case, trees), out of the same image. As a test, I did an array from 0-4 and I only got one tree to display at the last array point. What do I do? int treesxscreen1 [5]...

Re: Newbie wanting help

I fixed that problem I was having. Seems like I was calling something when I wasn't supposed to be. About arrays, then, I have been using the sample code for displaying a picture. Would I be able to shorten the code a lot when I put it in one? Here's the code I am using to display one tree: RECT rec...

Re: Newbie wanting help

But before I attempt to do that, a new problem popped up. It seems that moving Jack left or up glitches up all the sprites until he gets to near the top. I don't know what's causing this.

Re: Newbie wanting help

Well, I would want the trees in specific various places, not randomly, like to create a maze of trees that the player must navigate through.

Re: Newbie wanting help

I have a tree sprite. I want multiple copies of the tree sprite scattered various places, like a pattern. How would I do this? The pattern of the trees would change once you clear the screen.
