Re: [SOLVED] My app keeps crashing/glitching

The heap grows upwards and you can use some basic math to have it dynamically adjusted using the compiler/linker variables. The code below is just an example. Change the variables to your compiler flags as needed. EnterCriticalSection(); InitHeap3(&bss_end, (((int)&sp - stacksize) - (int)&am...

Re: Does NO$PSX works on Windows 98 ?

NO$PSX runs on my Windows 98 SE machine. It's not able to run at full speed, but it does indeed run. If I upgraded my machine from a Pentium 3 at 400 MHz to something faster (perhaps 800 MHz) it should then be able to run at full speed. Though, I'd have to do research on my mainboard since the bottl...

Re: I have a question... a crazy question...

Surely the documentation explains the arguments. Try also running a search in the Sony samples to find an example :)

Re: A difference of opinion on NO$PSX....

Uhm, BLEEM! was last updated 22 years ago and lacks a lot of the correct PSX core emulation. It is not a better emulator than NO$PSX.

Try a PU-7 or PU-8 board with the analog servos and adjust the laser power slightly since CD-R's require more gain ;)

Re: psxdev.net slow loading and timeouts

I couldn't find anything in the database. The issue might be on your end because multiple test sites worked fine with a paint time of approximately 1.5 seconds. Here is a result from Germany: https://www.webpagetest.org/result/230816_BiDc71_35W/

Re: Batch STR Converter

Why go to all that trouble when you can just use FFMPEG. Run the batch below and then merge the WAV and AVI in MC32.EXE to produce the STR.

Code: Select all

@ECHO OFF
CLS
ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -vcodec rawvideo -s 320x256 -r 25 -an output.avi
ECHO.
ffmpeg -i input.mp3 -acodec pcm_s16le -vn output.wav
PAUSE

But please consider to use the correct spelling. It's called buildcd (like B-U-I-L-D), not bulidcd (B-U-L-I-D).
If you are having trouble using BUILDCD, then try the MKPSXISO tool.

Re: Few homebrew games on PlayStation

Davide_G wrote: July 4th, 2023, 4:24 pm In your opinion, why are there very few homebrew games for PlayStation compared to other consoles (such as the Sega Saturn), despite it being one of the most popular and easy-to-program consoles?
Maybe because it's too easy and the Saturn provides a greater challenge? :shrug

Re: Linker error: Symbol not defined

Don't include libmcrd.lib unless you need it as it'll just bloat your CPE/EXE. The same goes for any other libs if you're not using them. Not sure what's going on, but try replacing libsn.lib with the 4.6 version instead. It looks like mine is from Wednesday, 28 July 1999 compared to Friday, 18 Febr...

Re: TIM transparency

Colour multiply seems to have the most realistic effect, but don't use emulation when experimenting with 3D especially in the field of lighting. Always use real hardware for proper accurate results.
