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.

Re: [DOWNLOAD] PlayStation 1 BIOS Collection

I would like to do that, but I don't want to risk taking appart my PS1. The last one I took appart, the connector for the disc drive broke off the board. I've had that happen too. It's due to a lack of solder paste from the factory which Sony used to manufacture the PlayStation 1. All you gotta' do...

Re: Black & white image on SCPH-1002 and there is no pointer

The flux used by the factories Sony went with isn't water soluble. Alcohol will help dissolve it, but you'll need to use something like a toothbrush to help assist with breaking it down further into the solution.

There is no service manual for the PU-7 or PU-8.

If you don't know where it is, just probe with your scope until you come across the eye pattern on the test points near the CD-ROM ribbon header on the mainboard. Just be care...

Re: PS1 Menu+Trainer Tool v2.4

NO$PSX and DuckStation are far more close to real emulation than pSX Fin (this emulator has not been updated in many years). The closest however so far to real hardware would have to be Xebra.

Re: Black & white image on SCPH-1002 and there is no pointer

I'm certain they're just covered in old flux. It's difficult to tell without either cleaning them or testing them with a multimeter. As NO$CASH said, they're just inductors and they're cheap to replace anyway. Also check the RGB (colour) encoder chip which also looks like it's covered in the burnt f...

Re: Is it possible to debug PS1 code with an XPlorerFX ?

To debug, use NO$PSX with the Psy-Q symbols. However, for basic debugging just adding printf() will suffice.

Re: scph1000 ntsc-j mm3 modchip diagram

If we assume your soldering was done right and the code was flashed correctly to the PIC, it could be anything from incorrect install guide images to bad code on the chip. The most common being that the install image that told you where to solder doesn't align with the pinouts and logic on the PIC. ...

That's pretty impressive. It looks very difficult though. I'd suggest improving the textures, adding lighting and working on maintaining 60 FPS. The biggest problem to me seems to be the texture resolution. Also, paper aeroplanes are white (not sure why you picked grey) ;) For some reference to what...

The latest NO$PSX supports Psy-Q symbols as well so that means you'll be able to see your symbols in MIPS assembly. NO$PSX is the first one to handle that ;)

Re: Lubrication

The formula varies from each country: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WD-40 For the Australian formula, I find WD-40 tends to evaporate, dry out and leave a film of slime. Hence, it's not good for actual permanent lubrication of moving parts where you need the oil to remain the same viscosity. I find ...

Re: Lubrication

If you can't find clock oil, you can use sewing machine oil. Basically you want a very thin and light oil with no heavy detergents (IE: you wouldn't want to use WD-40 even if it's generally thin because it has detergents).
