Re: DCLoad blue screen flash issue

Thanks! I'll try the -c option and see if it works. It could be that my old makefile took care of this. As far as my network goes, I have the Dreamcast hooked up to a router that's set to give it the same IP address each time it connects. My computer is attached to the same router, so it's on the sa...

DCLoad blue screen flash issue

So, I've just gone through the process of setting up my shiny new BBA. I'm trying to use DCLoad-IP to send a simple program to the Dreamcast. When I attempt the upload, the Dreamcast's screen flashes blue with a bunch of white hexcodes on it, then returns to the green idle screen. DCtool is still ru...

Untextured quads in libparallax?

I've been looking through the forum here for examples of how to draw an untextured quad, and I've found BlackAura's stuff, but it doesn't seem to apply to my situation. I prefer to use the PVR via libparallax, so that I can easily use the DR for rendering and matrix math for transformations, and I d...

Performing basic VMU file I/O operations?

I've been digging through the KOS headers and I can't quite figure out how to access the VMU's filesystem. I'm trying to find out how to read a file, create and write to a file, and check the VMU for the existence of a file or files matching a given pattern. There aren't any tutorials as far as I ca...

Re: DC Dev ISO R4

Hmm...so I wasn't just imagining it, there really are two DCEmulations now. In any case, I have a couple of questions about the new release. 1. The download link for R4 doesn't seem to be working, either here or at the other board. Both links redirect me to the front page of their respective sites. ...

I've got it working now! Thanks, c99, this really helps tremendously. I had to make a couple changes, but it works beautifully! In case anybody else finds this thread later, here's the code: Make sure you #include <plx/matrix.h> Also you need to call plx_mat3d_init(); before you use any of the mat3d...

Thanks! I can't believe I missed that typo. It compiles now, at least. I'll try using audacity to encode the .ogg and try it again. EDIT: Now I'm having makefile trouble as well! I didn't change the makefile, not a single character, but now Make is acting strange. Exiting and restarting cygwin doesn...

Not sure how to use sfxmgr.h, and libtremor troubles

Sorry for starting another topic, but I've searched and I can't find the answer to a new set of problems I'm having. I've tried to follow the hello-ogg example and I wrote a quick little test program that plays an Ogg Vorbis file, but it keeps crashing at the same point in the music (about 20 second...

Sprite rotation and camera movement in libparallax?

I've been looking for a way to do sprite rotation, but I can't seem to find out how to do it through libparallax. The plx/matrix.h headers are less than helpful, and what I've found on the boards here seems to only be useful if I were using the PVR API directly. So, how would I rotate a sprite using...

I tried that. It didn't work. BootDreams sits there, doing nothing except locking up my computer.

Can't read multisession CDs in DCHakker

I'm having trouble correctly reading multisession CDs in DCHakker. A disc with only one session reads perfectly. A CD with two or more sessions will cause my Dreamcast's drive to start chirping as it takes 45-60 seconds to read the disc. When it's done, only the files burned during the first two ses...

After making another coaster, I decided I'd put the demomenu plain files on a disc and use DCHakker to load them. Success! Unfortunately, DemoMenu isn't any better at reading past the second session than DCHakker. Maybe it's my Dreamcast? Maybe only the first two tracks are DC-readable? I have no id...

Major problems with DemoMenu and DCHakker

I'm having trouble getting DCHakker to read any more than two sessions on any disc. I'll burn the disc as multisession, then continue it when I add another test build, then continue it again, and so on. I'm using Nero 5.5.10.something, and when it asks which track to continue from, I always select t...

Thanks a million, guys! After switching to Dchakker + a multisession disc as my new method of testing, I edited out the lines you and OneThirty8 suggested.

For now, I've decided to forget about SDL_TTF and just comment out all the stuff that uses it in my code. It finally compiles, and the makefile gives me a nice ready-to-go scrambled binary. I use sezious's IP.BIN maker to create an IP.BIN for my disc, (this was after several hours of cdi2nero not gi...

Thank you so much! Linking stdc++ works, but when I try adding -lfreetype, the linker gives me a "cannot find -lfreetype" error. I assume this is because I need to compile the freetype library, but when I go into kos-ports/freetype and type make, the makefile stops with the following error: make: **...
