Re: DC-chain / Kos 2.0 Installation Errors

Where can I download dc-chain?

What I don't understand with DC development is how there is no real SDK for it, I mean like KOS but only 1 kit packed together with everything needes to make a DC game + a Manual (How to make a code a DC game)

It would make DC dev'ing way more handy.

Re: Hucast is looking for a coder to build a KOS based Frame

the pc-opengl renderer was replaced by KOS-pvr-api, sound and input are direct KOS without SDL. All the png-textures can be used as they are or converted to the native pvr-format. I didn't use the new OpenGL-api for dc, because it wasn't released at the time. And I wanted to try native PVR. Looking...

Re: Hucast is looking for a coder to build a KOS based Frame

Yes DUX was made by using KOS but it was made by KTX Software and they won't do the Ghost Blade Port. Also DUX was made in 2008, some of the tools in the chain probably wont exist anymore or will be dated. I'm in touch with some DC coders now and they all say an port to DC will be easy if they have ...

Re: Hucast is looking for a coder to build a KOS based Frame

Well. Maybe Framework was a bit misleading. At least we need the whole Toolchain compiled for windows to port the game. A Framework with sample demo would be more helpfully though.

Re: Hucast is looking for a coder to build a KOS based Frame

What we would need is a simple demo program: With a simple game loop with 1 alpha channel sprite that can be moved with the joypad plus a background. The sprite/bg needs to be drawn with polygons. Examples with using alpha blending / normal, texture compression. Sprite animation via changing the tex...

Is there a Streaming engine?

Well, Ikaruga seems to stream the graphics into the vram if that is true. But did aynone ever made such a engine too? Is KOS actually able to use Streaming for graphics?

It seems that it will only work with CD Audio disabled but with MOD based music.

Re: 2D graphics / KOS tutorials

Is the new KOS also available for Windows or is it Linux only?

I'd love to use it for Ghost Blade.
