Hello from ps80

Post by ps80 » December 31st, 2019, 5:57 am

I joined a while ago and didn't get round to posting. I thought I'd post here and say hello, so my account doesn't get deleted for having no posts.
I found this site years ago and had never got round to joining as I thought progamming on the Playstaion looked too complicated, but I've followed some of the guides and look at the source codes people have posted and I've managed to get some basic tests working.

Hiya ps80, i'm learning how to make games on the ps as well, I thought i would go down the Net Yaroze path first. There is a copy of the Official Net Yaroze site archived with lots of example code. I bought a Net Yaroze Playstation, but after some research I found out you can turn any grey playstation into a Net Yaroze, if it has a parallel port you can flash a cheat cartridge so you can boot burned games or a patched copy of the Net Yaroze Boot Disc and send code over via serial cable. (need to make the cable yourself)

I followed the hello world example in the help section tonight but there is a few errors in the guide. I managed to get a sprite example code for the Net Yaroze into an ps.exe and burn it to disc that booted fine.

I'm using Windows 10 64bit i have Virtualbox set up with windows xp and PSY-Q SDK set up.

whats is your setup?

I have a PC running Windows XP for coding on. I've not looked at using Yarose, I went straight to psyq. I'll probably have a look at Lameguy64's SDK soon, as I followed the excellent tutorial on Lameguy64's site and it really helped me with getting Tim files loaded and working, which lead to animated sprites and starting on a 2D tile based platform game. I really never thought I would get as far as I have, but this site has really helped. I'm still at a very basic level of understanding C, working in 2D, but at least I can now get something loading on my PlayStation.

I use MCLaunch 1.1 to copy the exe to memory card and test games on my PlayStation or burn a disc. I really need to make a cable a some point and get that way of loading to console working.

What is LameGuy64's site? The one on his profile lameguy.tk isn't working for me. I think you're way more advanced then me. I haven't wrote any code yet or modified any example code. I'm just getting used to sending code to the playstation, and converting the code, contents and files to a PS-Yaroze.exe but it wont work on a standard PS so it has to be converted to a standard PS.exe

MCLaunch 1.1 wow didn't know there was something like this on the ps1 just thought it was free mc boot on the ps2. MCLaunch supports EXEs up to 112 KB

If you do ever want to build a cable check out this post :- viewtopic.php?f=62&t=1071

Thanks for the link. The login caught me out, I tried to dive straight in and was greeted with a login page.

I thought I'd have a go at doing some 3D code. It took me a week or two to work out how to get clipping and near division to work with my code, but I've managed to put together a very basic First Person Shooter demo. It's small enough to fit on a memory card so I can use MCLaunch 1.1 to test it on real hardware. It's tile based, with collision detection, very basic enemy movement, with the ability to shoot and pickup items (health and ammo). I've borrowed some sprites from spriters-resource.com for now but at some point I'll try to replace them with my own.

I wasn't sure how to attach an image, I hope this works and is OK to do like this?

Thanks. I'd like to share the exe so others can have a go. What would be the best section to start a thread in? It's under 112kb at the moment as it fits on a memory card, so can I attach the file in a thread like I did my image above?
