Re: How to make a menu

no problem, there's easier ways to do a menu actually. Just generate the list in an image and displaying it would be easier then using a font (but font's are need in games! :) ) Then just move something (another image or a coloured RECT etc) on screen. But the basics are rendering and moving somethi...

Re: How to make a menu

Yup ! I need some help ! I need to know how to make a menu. Something basic, with a choice (like 1 player/2player), but I don't know how to make a cursor for highlighting the choice. Can someone help me out ? :) Sounds easy to do, a good exercise for a beginner. Get text rendering on screen first, ...

Re: SIOCONS compatible USB Cable

That will do the job perfectly :-). It has all the pins needed broken out and more, and seems very cheap too. Also, it mentions the eeprom which is the bit the fakes don't copy.. which we need for the above. I"m still looking for my cable and don't have the SparkFun FTDI board yet. But just thought...

Re: How to call another application

Might help if you post code, but I would look at what the exe needs in RAM and where and obliviously where you're loading the exe.

Re: SIOCONS compatible USB Cable

Adafruit should be genuine, but that is missing DTR/DSR signals broken out to pins so wouldnt work - unless you dont mind soldering directly to the pins on the IC itself which I wouldn't recommend. With that pin layout they are mainly designed for programming Arduino Pro Micro and that kind of thin...

Re: SIOCONS compatible USB Cable

Basically, avoid eBay and anything that is cheap. Amazon have a few - see attached picture (depends on your location, not sure about Australia) - this model says that it is genuine. To check if you have a genuine, try changing some of the values in FTprog, you will find that the changes are always ...

Re: Hi folks!

Honestly, I'm trying to learn much more about programming. I have a very basic grip of C at the moment and I'm trying to learn more, so I wanted to take a shot at PSX homebrew, specifically demos; I like new challenges and I love working with older platforms :) Cool, there's a big learning curve, a...

I didn't want to spam that PSXERIAL USB cable thread, so replying here. no problem. I did write a guide on here. If you struggle following it let me know I will help you build one then edit the guide. The hardest part of the whole build is just working out which pin in the connector belongs to which...

Re: PSXSERIAL USB Cables

Thanks for the info!
That's fare enough, and not a bad price.
I might give it a try as a DIY project.

the old Yaroze tools - shame really as I actually learnt C on the Yaroze SDK back in in '98.
Yeah, it's a great little system to understand C, 2D and basic 3D for sure!

Re: Custom Image/Texture Format?

Oh you mean converting binary to C code? Linux has a program called od or google bin2c, which does that, but I wouldn't recommend it, it's a waste of RAM, unless you plan on reusing that space again. "For example, the Nintendo 64 uses arrays of colors for the textures. There is a function where you ...
