Re: Basic newbie questions

You will want to get a US copy to make your life easier if you're using that setup. The serial number/access key pairs are region-locked, so you'd have to use the Japanese game if you want to use a Japanese serial number. As for finding people to play with, when you go online, you'll be put into a l...

Re: Basic newbie questions

1. If you want to be able to register your serial/access key on the website, you will need to have a non-shared one. If you're planning on playing with the official GD-ROM and the Sylverant PSO Patcher disc (which you'll need for the US or Japanese versions anyway), then it doesn't matter what regio...

Re: Unsure how to make VMU saves

Your post ended up in the Programming forum because I moved it here. It belongs here, not in the top forum, as it is a programming related question. ;-) The errors you've posted there imply that whatever lxdream is doing with the VMU isn't working, as KOS cannot read it. Those should not happen on r...

Re: Unsure how to make VMU saves

First off, moved to the right forum. ;-) Second, when you call fs_open() with a mode of O_WRONLY, it will create a new file if the file doesn't exist -- just like doing an 'fopen(filename, "wb");' would (which also brings up the point that you can just use the normal fopen(), fread(), and fwrite() f...

Re: Updates to bfont

I'm pretty sure that most of the world knew about all the extra symbols in the font for a really long time, considering that Marcus' documentation on the system calls (including the font stuff) has been around for more than 17 years at this point. That, and quzar actually did a good portion of his c...

Re: Trying a gcc 7 toolchain

Sure, Clang would be nice, but it requires someone to port LLVM over to the SuperH, which... well isn't exactly the simplest of tasks to undertake.

Re: Having trouble with registering GameCube

Are you putting in the number with no dashes, as the registration page says? That is the most common problem that people have with the registration page.

If you are sure you're doing that correctly, what error is it giving you?

Re: Does vmu_draw_lcd block? How fast can you call it?

Basically, because of how the maple code is set up (and how it uses DMA), you can only do a maximum of one frame per vblank. The function does indeed block until the VMU accepts the frame, so you probably do want to use a thread for it if you don't want it blocking your main thread. It used to be po...

You have to complete the levels offline in order to have it save your progress. Completing levels online does not save your progress.

Re: My contribution to the KallistiOS project

Contributions are always good, but it's going to take me a long time to review such a large contribution (especially since there are already merge conflicts). I know it's probably not easily doable based on how everything's interleaved in the pull request, but any chance you'd consider breaking it i...

Re: Project Works on Emulators; Black Screen on Hardware

Memory on real hardware (outside of your .text, .data, .rodata, and .bss sections) isn't initialized when the program starts. Emulators usually do start with memory completely zeroed out, which is why that would work out fine on an emulator but not on the real hardware.

Re: Help Setting up KOS in Netbeans IDE

You need to source the environment script (usually called "environ.sh") to set up the various variables that the shell needs (including the aforementioned KOS_BASE). The easiest thing to do is to do so in your shell's startup file (which if you're using bash as your shell (I'm not sure what MSYS2 us...

Re: PSO Questions & Answers

Drop rates are determined by the client unless you enable server-side drops (by way of a special command you have to run before creating the team). However, it is currently not possible to enable server-side drops on PSOGC due to a bug in the Sylverant code. So, all the drops in PSOGC are completely...

Re: Help Setting up KOS in Netbeans IDE

Your next step would be to put together a simple Makefile that builds your code. Most people just take one of the ones from the KOS examples and just modify it to suit their needs. Then you'd build your program by going into its directory with MSYS2 and running the make program.

If you switch to Ubuntu you could get VS Studio? I've just looked at NetBeans and it looks kinda like it.
I use Atom personnaly but I see that it might be a bit barebone for you.
Assuming you're talking about VS Code, that's available on Windows too.
