Duane's Great Adventure (A Pong Clone)

I finally finished my first Dreamcast title: https://king-crazy.itch.io/duanes-great-adventure https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/483748485745606656/625740564620509184/duanes-great-adventure-coverart.png There's not much to it. It's a pretty simple 2-player pong clone inspired by an old meme. It...

Re: LibTsunami Displaying JPEG Incorrectly

With image type, the process is this: 1. Load the texture into memory (If its a png/jpeg it will generally load slightly faster than a dtex file since most dtex files aren't compressed) 2. If its not a native Dreamcast format, convert it to the native format (Takes some time, but only done once) 3....

Re: LibTsunami Displaying JPEG Incorrectly

I've never used jpeg source files, so I can't comment on that. However I personally recommend not using jpegs or pngs because the Dreamcast has to convert them to its native texture format at runtime, That's only the case when loading the texture, right? Once it's loaded in memory it shouldn't real...

Re: LibTsunami Displaying JPEG Incorrectly

I was working with GLdc for a bit! But it started getting to be a bit too advanced for me. Writing my own model loader was a bit of a stretch for me at the time, and I'd like to ease myself into working with the Dreamcast before I overwhelm myself. Jumping straight into GLdc gave me a ton of headach...

LibTsunami Displaying JPEG Incorrectly

Hello! I decided to try my hand at working with some 2D stuff, to contrast my earlier jumping into the deep end with OpenGL! I was reading some people highly suggest Parallax and subsequently Tsunami over the Dreamcast port of SDL, so I figured when I'd get some free time I'd learn how to use Tsunam...

Re: DreamSDK R2 is now available

Hmm, yes those all seem to be the case. I created a new project and made sure that "Use embedded resources (romdisk)" was selected. I checked the linker settings and the romdisk.o was listed there. The Pre-build steps were missing, but after adding those it still seems to give me the same error. It ...

Re: Load ELF/BIN NullDC 1.04 For Debug / Testing

I was never able to get .elf files to load into NullDC, personally. I always just compiled my .elf, converted it to a .bin (much like the first half of the code that Protofall suggested), and then used Bootdreams to make it into a CDI file.

Hello! First off, let me just say thank you so much for the work you put into setting up this SDK! It's really nice to see a lot of these tools and utilities centralized in one place! I decided to give this a shot, since I was getting a bit tired of taking a break and coming back to a mess of folder...

Re: USB FTDI Coders Cable

I was actually privately asked about this a few months back (and forgot to check my PMs, oops!). I saw this and figured I might as well throw my work out there! A couple months ago I set out to make a Coder's cable with little hardware knowledge. I didn't want to internally mod my Dreamcast, but ins...

Re: Just wanted to say hi!

Welcome to the forums!~ It's super exciting to see more people taking an interest in the Dreamcast homebrew scene! Dreamcast development is certainly a big leap from working with other engines like Unreal Engine, or Unity, but it's also a great learning experience, and can be super rewarding! Gettin...

What 3D model format do you use?

Helloo This isn't an issue, so much as just a question for you more experienced Dreamcast programmers. I'm aware that MD2 is a pretty simple 3D file format to use, and that file formats like OBJ aren't ideal for a multitude of reasons, but I was curious: what do you all tend to use? And why do you p...

Re: Project Works on Emulators; Black Screen on Hardware

Memory on real hardware (outside of your .text, .data, .rodata, and .bss sections) isn't initialized when the program starts. Emulators usually do start with memory completely zeroed out, which is why that would work out fine on an emulator but not on the real hardware. Ohh, gotchya! That makes a l...

No problem! Hope it works out. Just to follow up, I tried installing KOS on my own Macbook this morning and ran into some errors, myself. I seem to remember this happening when I tried before on Mac. The KOS toolchain installs for a good 30~40 minutes and then returns some error, even when you have ...
