Re: Help Setting up KOS in Netbeans IDE

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.

Re: Wiki feedback

Sure, why not! I've dabbled with this as well -> https://github.com/dreamcastdevs/dreamcast_tutorial/wiki Also, I did this in one work session last weekend. I'm gonna work on this more, but first I want to complete some stuff on my game so I can release something soon ;) But it was suprisingly quick...

Re: KOS - static initialisation failure: __gnu_cxx::__concurrence_lock_error

I don't know if this would work on Win, but I recently compiled KOS quite easily.

I even made an updated guide on how I did it. https://github.com/dreamcastdevs/dreamc ... _toolchain

Re: Advice for making a menu with dbgio

I've tried your code and couldn't get anything to display on screen. Also the clear_screen(); function couldn't be found.

Re: Wiki feedback

Here's a quick start. I'm still thinking how exactly to go about making the examples but I've added some references.

Re: Wiki feedback

Yes. I'll try to tackle some of them this week.

Would it be good to even host all the exemple on a github? I'll toy with some stuff and send them your way this week for doublecheck.

Re: Wiki feedback

Now that I have a bit more experience with the DC, I'd love to be able to contribute more to the wiki. I've been looking at how its organized and I wonder if it would be a good idea to streamline it. What I mean is that if you're new to DC programming and you want to make a game, the few first thing...

Re: reading the content of /rd

FOUND THE ISSUE!

GZ compression is the culprit!!!!!
I'll update the git soon! I'm testing different .gzip compression to figure out if it's a compression issue.

Otherwise i'll drop the gz compression altogether.

Re: reading the content of /rd

Ok, so I did make a test Here's a github link https://github.com/lerabot/romdisk_test There's more info in the readme, but this basically confirm my theory. Everything in the original romdisk is fine. Longer names, everything. When you load a second romdisk, you get issues. You can find my result in...

I've just updated git and and commented that whole make_banner thing cause it still prevented the make completion. I haven't tested those modification but it's good to know that re-compiling kos doesn't seem to break my project :) I'll make a test project will a bunch of test case for the romdisk th...

Re: reading the content of /rd

I still have some wierd naming issue. I might just skip using romdisk entirely if I can't figure this one out. My project has a bunch of files now and I'm wondering if the sheer number of file make things problematic. I'm at around 1200ish files (assets, sound, code, etc) I've went around and tried ...

Re: reading the content of /rd

I haven't changed it because shortening the filename seem to work. But there's defenitly something strange with similar name. I have a romdisk with 9 button named b1.png to b9.png. I also happen to have 2 sound files called b1.wav and b2.wav. When I load my 9 buttons, b1.png and b2.png won't load. I...

Re: reading the content of /rd

I've double cheked all of it. I can read the content of /cd, /pc, and root. any romdisk that I mount doesn't work. I've checked /ram /rd and tried with different mount points. Also, there's something super strange going on with file naming or handles. Let's say I have a file called spritesheet.json ...

reading the content of /rd

I've been going a bit crazy over the last couple hour. First of all, I never realized the maximum file you could get out of a romdisk at once is 16! I've tried chanding the #define MAX_RD_FILES 16 flag. Do I need recompile kos for this to work? Also, I have a full working way to display the content ...

For some reason the heard is always wierd if I check it in hex view. Link to the file -> https://magnes.neocities.org/spritesheet.tex.png (This is actually a .tex file,...

Re: UV Coordinates Not Mapping to Object Correctly

It seems to me like the mapping is just incorrect. Your code does seem to work. Did you know that openGL coord start from the bottom left? Cause I feel like you got maybe like 1 axis wrong. Do you want to try this instead: Index - UV 0 - 0,0 1 - 1,0 2 - 0,1 2 - 0,1 1 - 1,0 3 - 1,1 Let me know. I use...
