VMU save/loading

I'm trying to get this tutorial from 2008 to work and I'm wondering if there's a more modern way to do this? Instead of trying to get a file on the VMU, I'm making a struct that contains all the data I need for a save. I'm trying to store that in pkg.data but I'm not sure if what I'm doing is right....

Re: GLdc - Call for testers!

Shoutouts to Kazade for working on this.
We've been chatting quite a bit about this project and I've been using it for Reaperi Cycle.

It's been working quite well so far. We've both been testing different stuff with, my project being in 2D and using glOrtho and kazade's test being 3D.

Re: 3d kgl pvr texture format

Hey, I don't know what libGL version you're using, but you might wanna toy with Kazade's version, as he's actively working on it.
Also, I think I remember reading that lighting is currently busted on some libGL build. That might be the slowdown?

Re: How to make a cdi file from my recent compiled KOS project?

This is what I usually use to make my CDI. Check that the paths are matching yours. This will build your .iso and.cdi files outside the current directory. This is to prevent re-adding your .cdi/.iso to your disk everytime. DIR=$PWD PROJECT_NAME="project" #elf transform?? sh-elf-objcopy -R .stack -O ...

Testing via SD card with Dreamshell

I've been debugging my game with a bunch of tool and I've had problem with Dreamshell. I want to make it as compatible with everything as I can (real CD, SD card, emulators, etc). The engine load fine, but I can't get any paths to works. Everything that inside the first romdisk is fine, bet everythi...

I feel like working on this sooo much. But I have so much thing to do for work! Shoot me a github link at some point. I'd love to make this compatible with the current openGL implementations.

I'll give you a proper answer tonight. I might have messed something in the exporter, I've never really tested it at the time ;)

Re: 3d kgl pvr texture format

I've also had a lot of trouble with .pvr files. I've been working with .png and .dtex lately.
I'd be interesting in seeing how other are converting files to .pvr.

Re: Playing multiple audio files.

Fine, I'll look into the source of the libogg stuff adn try to hack something together.
Do you think the DC can handle multiple ogg stream decoding?

Playing multiple audio files.

I'm currently using libogg to play some background music. I'm toying with the idea of adding audio dialogue but I can't get 2 files to play at once. I have a feeling this is related to thread or streaming 2 files at once. I did try to have the dialog in rom and the background music on CD, still no l...

Re: Someone edit this makefile to work properly?

hard to say, I the stuff I make rely on the latest KOS.
relying on old engine you don't really know about is always gonna be a bit messy.

Re: How make a CDI runnable on Reicast ?

What are you deving on? Here's a part of a script that I use to make reicast bootable .CDI you'll need a IP.BIN in your folder as well. I can't remember how I got that file tho. Maybe from one of the exemple? Also, this will create the .CDI and .ISO outside of you current folder. This is to prevent ...
