fashionably late to the party?

Post by blucco » April 10th, 2012, 9:58 am

yes indeed. i was bored this afternoon so i looked around my closet for junk that might spark my interest. i came across my old psx, a pro action replay, and a parallel-to-usb cable. a little googling around and i realized i had most (if not all) of the fixings for a playstation development kit. i'm going to be fine-tooth-combing the net for any resources that might still be available for my soon-to-be hobby and this site seemed like a good spot to share some of my findings, as well as hopefully meet some more experienced playstation developers who might be able to help me out at various junctures along the way.

it's been a while since i've had the chance to learn something completely new, so i'm more than excited but less than prepared (i'm sure) for what i'm getting myself into. my knowledge of C is iffy and will require some definite work, and i've never worked with a dedicated platform. so here i come!

i will upload some pics of my rig in the near future. :)

I think he means like this: http://jum.pdroms.de/PSX/psxdevstart.html
He wants to make games or experiment using the PS1, Action Replay (with CAETLA) and a Parallel Cable.
Should you need any files blucco, let me know :)
