Re: COVID 19 Thread

I teach college classes which have been moved completely online... So work wise, things are a bit awkward (it's really different lecturing to a computer screen and webcam than it is standing in front of a lecture hall), but otherwise work is still there. I'm spending a lot less on gas and food becau...

Re: PSO Questions & Answers

The /sdrops command currently uses the same drop rates (including by ID) that the game itself uses.

Re: Getting kicked out after the first few minutes every time..

The patcher disc only overwrites the address that the game tries to connect to in RAM. That’s the only network related change it makes — it doesn’t change any of your other settings at all. If you are able to connect at all, likely the problem lies with your router and not the Dreamcast’s settings. ...

Re: What does everyone do for work?

For the past few years, I've been teaching at the university I'm attending while I finish up with my Ph.D. in Computer Science, specifically I've been teaching the required upper-level CS undergraduate course on Operating Systems. One of these days I'll finish with my Ph.D. and get a real job, but ...

Re: Getting kicked out after the first few minutes every time..

That definitely seems like an issue with something on your network, either your router or something with the network settings on your DC.

Re: PSO Questions & Answers

As long as he has two serial number and access keys, then yes, he can play both at the same time. He would have to register both copies on the Sylverant website (they can be on the same account), and do all the other setup needed to get PSO to work on a Wii -- but yes, it will work.

Re: Cross-platform DC and GC

The commands were somewhat recently made GM only because there were far too many people "testing" them and ending up crashing either themselves or others because of it. I'll fix the documentation to move them to the GM-only list.

I didn't know /sdrops actually worked to make rares drop in quest. News to me. I always thought that for a potential new droptable to fix Segas garbage/broken droprates?
It could very well be used to do that too, just nobody's made up a different set of drop tables for it to do so yet.

Re: KallistiOS IPv4 DHCP Issues

Interesting... I'm not sure why it would have ever worked at all if that's how it's broken. Weird... Well, thanks for figuring it out. :)

I'll rig up a better fix for it than just commenting that out the next time I get a chance to work on things.

Re: Is there a reason KOS only has one controller callback?

If you're looking to set up a exit to menu callback for all controllers like commercial games do, just set the addr parameter to 0. I'd like to be able to set unique chords for each controller, though. Example, I have made some changes to controller.h so that each controller has its own unique call...

Re: KallistiOS IPv4 DHCP Issues

Well, that's certainly strange and not behavior that I've seen before with regard to DHCP -- I've seen my router completely ignore the requests when testing (because I sent them too often), but I've never seen the system not send them out.

Re: Developing for Dreamcast and PC simultaneously

It could possibly be good enough, depending on how you write your code. That said, as I said before, SDL is pretty bad on the Dreamcast (there are multiple different ports of it by different people, each with their own unique and possibly not well documented set of problems). Although it might end u...
