This is my entry into the PSXDEV Codeblast '14 competition.

I turned up here less than a month ago; I've yet to finish sorting myself out with real hardware for testing and therefore have no idea whether this works outside of an emulator. I am therefore aware that I may be disqualified. It's the simple, most preparatory stuff towards writing a game — there's a few 3d objects and, separately, a player-navigated camera. The next steps would be to add intelligent objects and collision detection. However the deadline for this competition approaches, my time is very occasional and no other entries seem yet to have materialised so I thought I'd post something rather than nothing. If I can find time to improve it then I will.

It's supposed to run in PAL interlaced mode, 640x480, at 50fps. All appropriate work is performed by the GTE. You'll notice that the model is not original.

I don't really know what I'm doing with the tools yet so here's a plain, unsigned ISO and a .EXE.

Please try my little program by running it under the emulator of your choice. It was tested under No$PSX (under WINE) and PCSXR.

Thank you :)

Should I reply to myself? I've no idea of the etiquette.

Anyway, I managed to produce a video on real hardware; I'm tortuously burning discs right now* so the fact that I'd left some debug info on screen wasn't enough to dissuade me from uploading.

* a serial cable is en route.

Right. Here's a bootable ISO and the latest EXE. This project has now been tested on real hardware and a screenshot from there, in glorious composite, is attached.

I also threw in a few more ships, as I continue barely to tax the hardware despite hugely inefficient code. That second bit is why I haven't included it yet and probably won't get it up in time for the competition. I'm certain it'll be a lot better in the near future.

Suffice to say, with that particular property being well defended and with a new release due this year, this is very much placeholder art. Even if I ended up writing more or less exactly that game...

Who cares :)
I would actually like to see your code. As long as notepad can open it up and i can compile it (or at least try to...) that's all that matters, right :)

In that case I've gone one step further and started a repository on GitHub. That solves the problem of showing code now and ensuring any improvements I find time to make are always published.

Also it's a very convenient backup...
