Re: New to Dreamcast homebrew, question about engines

DreamSDK just helps you get setup with DC development. You're still stuck with the same options that Protofall posted.

Re: fopen fails to open files on CD sometimes

Solution from the discord:

Max files you can open from CD is 8
kos/kernel/arch/dreamcast/include/dc/fs_iso9660.h : #define MAX_ISO_FILES 8

Hey BlueCrab maybe we can bump up this value up to 16?

Re: [SOLVED] Cheap Shadows rendering issue

I see that nobody has discussed this and it is not included in the current KOS. BUMP

NOTE: I have not tested this and have no knowledge of modifier volumes.

Re: Wiki feedback

I also noticed a lot of the tutorials have the following comment at the top when they don't have any GL stuff:

This uses Kazade's GLdc and some part of his NeHe example.

Re: Want a coder's cable (DC serial to DB9) ?

I think BlueCrab means that solder the board internally and not actually create a plug for the serial port. Man... I wish I could solder and know its ins and outs.

Re: Mac OSX dc serial not detecting

For some reason the output gets to "Console Enabled" when I try and change the baudrate. It's fine though.

This is what I ran in the terminal:

dc-tool -t /dev/cu.usbserial -b 115200 -e -x dcp.bin

The only dc development I have done in the past is on Windows. Now I want to develop on my Mac. After pulling out the old coder's cable and recompiling dc-serial(host and client) from here: https://sourceforge.net/p/cadcdev/dcload-serial/ci/master/tree/ I reached a block.
