Truespace 3 released with PSX development support?

I was searching for truespace docs, and the playstation BBS pdf (ie Silas S. Warner ) came up, apparently there was a Sony PlayStation build of truespace v1 which supported PSXDEV formats (3D .RSD 2D .TIM), v2 retail versions didn't, as mentioned in the BBS. both version 3.2 and v3 SE have support f...

Re: NO$PSX V2.1 Released (20th Aug 2022)

I just tried 2.2 from the .de site, in winXP it crashes when launching via cmdline with a psx.exe as first param.
dragging and dropping seems to crash the same way.

Re: SIOCONS compatible USB Cable

Hey, I got one of those ultra common FTDI breakout boards for the FT232RL and of course it came with a fake chip. I found it easier, in my local context, to reuse the breakout board and install a legitimate FTDI FT232RL, and it seems to have worked pretty well as it committed the input inversion co...

Re: Tilemap best practices

For tilemap (and cell pixel art).... i've been getting into https://tilestudio.sourceforge.net/ It's really old and it gets really slow on big maps (> 64x64) but it does everything and it's opensouce! I think it's strengths are the script export (text or binary) and it's simplicity. https://www.yout...

Re: Recompile Yaroze Source

actually I forgot gcc gets compiled twice, so it needs to be compiled in windows, probably using wls windows linux subsystem or cygwin stuff.

neither which I use :/

Re: Recompile Yaroze Source

Might be a stupid question but what would be the steps to get this working natively on windows machine, eg the original yaroze was DJGPP and didnt require a linux/unix shell etc.. is there a way to get it cross compiled to work natively on a windows machine? there is, I've compiled it and used it a...

Re: Configuring C::B for Psy-Q

:cringe:
I used C::B for a while and went back to eclipse (CDT C/C++) via makefile, but whatever you feel best coding in, use that!
Beside, this stuff now is kinda old now, there's been alot of new tools working better then the OG NY DOS compiler or even homebrew stuff :D

Hi welcome! Your mentors are smart people! The problem with retro dev, 20+ years later is: 1. Hardware is going to get harder and more expensive to get 2. Experienced people forgetting the tech and less people with the right skills will be interested in learning. Which means, the communities will be...
