Re: Nebula X Worklog

Here is the test sprite sheet. 256x256 image with 36 frames on a 30x30 grid. The left over room can be used for explosion animations, bullets, weapons, etc. http://i.imgur.com/iClWnsu.png Perhaps you mean a 10x10 grid or did I miss something? However, good idea of putting as many sprites as possibl...

Re: FreeWare/OpenSource PC Tools.

Hi Matej, thank you very much for the links, I was just wondering about a sprite editor lately. Concerning the Allegro library, I'm afraid that linking external libraries into the official devkit is not possible as the Psy-Q SDK is closely tight to the hardware. In theory you would need a middle lay...

Re: line-by-line debugging possibility

Just out of curiosity (didn't check myself yet).

scee_dev.pdf, page 13 and following: "3.1.2b DBUGPSX".

They talk about this debugger for PC-based development but don't get into details. Could it be a useful tool?

Collision detection is working and logic seems to be working pretty well.
I also added a 256 undo moves which are stored on a LIFO stack which diches the oldest data if it's full.
it's cute. Thumbs up! :-)

Re: Sokoban for PS1

Hm, never heard about it until now. Nice game I must say. Though it doesn't seem to contain 50 original levels which is what I'm aiming for. I used to play a Sokoban clone on my Palm Tungsten. If my memory serves, that clone touted the feature of being able to automatically import levels complying ...

Scrollable background: how?

Hello, I'm trying to make a simple scrollable background. I'm quite confused on how to accomplish this. There seems to be two ways to manage a background: 1) Load a single TIM file representing the whole "world" and generate a GsSPRITE from the resulting GsIMAGE. I should manually manage the number ...

Ok, that's the correct way as I suspected. I have to control this behaviour programmatically instead of forcing a slower frame rate with longer Vsync() iterations.

thanks

Question about timings

Hello, I've put up a basic thing that mimics the behaviour of an arcade "enter your name" type screen (I've borrowed the alphabet ribbon sprite from the 'abetro' demo found around here in the homebrew section). I've followed the PAL guidelines in the scee_dev.pdf document and this thread but the inp...

I would like to be able to "pierce" and discard the white background and keep the black as main color of the sprite: is it possible? How? I tried vari...

Re: Error compiling against PSXLIB

There's nothing "awkward" in what he said, C89 forces variables to be declared before instructions. Interesting. So ccpsx adheres to the C89 standard (at least in this respect). I dind't know that nor I've found any mention in the docs about a C89 compliancy (I've never met a compiler with that con...
