Re: HP ditches the hardware business

Web 2.0 was supposed to make free and easy the facilities of content creation and publishing to all users, and to a large part it did. This new appified 'garden fence' computing environment that is emerging does exactly the opposite, forcing users (for the most part) back into being purely content c...

Re: The Dreamcast Real Power [pics and videos inside] [+update]

well, i've read that there's a misinterpretation of the word "caralho" (or carajo in spanish). This word in fact references at the top part of a navy (some kind of tiny place in the highest place possible where a sailor could see far away). Also there's a lot of translations, i think that every cou...

Re: Dreamcast Media Center

Great, but wouldn't it be better ( and obviously more diff and take more time ) to use the emulator core ( and not load the emu bin ) to load the rom directly from dcmc? Two cons of this are the rom recognision, either using a different file extension for each rom type would work or maybe the heade...

Backup system in batch script

I've been working on a backup script for a web ticketing system called Kayako SupportSuite. It's fairly iron-clad and works by performing a mysql dump of the database, compressing it, then making a copy of that to a hot-redundant system along with a copy of the attachments uploaded to the site (whic...

Re: Compiling SNES4ALL

I remember there was large discussion of this problem after Chui first started releasing his sources. That they were not usable because of custom libraries used. He did however release his forks of SDL at a later point. Not sure if those would be the same ones used for this though, as this is newer ...

Re: Thread-Safe CD-Rom Access????

I've been in and out of the CD-ROM driver, and from that level there should be no problem (there is no point where the hardware will receive two simultaneous requests or such). I can imagine though that further up into the FS layers there is a problem. Most threading stuff is greatly untested on the...

Re: A serious question for our intelligent members.

There are a number of programs that take controller inputs and remap them to virtual KB/Mouse devices to solve the problem you're having mel. Sorry, I can't provide any names as I've never used any, but I've seen them mentioned in many emulator discussions.

Re: State of the Wii - Graphics, Sound, Controls.

I really enjoyed (and found nothing wrong with the graphics of) Murasama, Epic Mickey, and Dokapon Kingdom. Those I think were the last three games I played for the system (aside from Mario Galaxy 2, which enough has been said about), over the course of the last year. I've never found myself having ...

Re: bitmaster's IDE/G2 interface aka DREAMCAST HARD DRIVE>!!!

The only thing that gets written to memory are the syscalls IIRC. This is what allows them to be hooked into (I believe that's how dcload does it's iso emulation).

Re: bitmaster's IDE/G2 interface aka DREAMCAST HARD DRIVE>!!!

I'm not sure why you would think the flash chip would have anything to do with it. I'm basing my notion off Dan's work with NAVI where he did the same thing and left the ability to switch back to the 'stock' firmware: Look at step 4. http://cadcdev.sourceforge.net/hdwrprj/navi/ Replacing/piggybackin...

Re: bitmaster's IDE/G2 interface aka DREAMCAST HARD DRIVE>!!!

It is more difficult to develop, but easier to use for the end user. These gadgets could be mass produced, changing the bios is a mess anytime. Someone could easily develop a packaging for a replacement bios chip that simply piggybacks onto the current one. I believe only one leg need be cut from t...

Re: bitmaster's IDE/G2 interface aka DREAMCAST HARD DRIVE>!!!

The thing that could work without changing the bios, is like the sd adapter for the gamecube, the one that replaces the lens... Creating some sort of pcb which translates sega's SPI to IDE ( for hard drives ) or something like SD's or USB storage media... So the dreamcast would still "think" there'...

Re: Dreamcast Media Center

But, what did you end up deciding about sending multi-channel streams to the SPU? Would it be possible to send 6-ch wave to the SPU, and let the hardware do the mixing? Or is data transfer too slow to send 6-ch wave to the SPU in real-time? Don't know. I have tested 44k/16bit stereo wav and it's fa...

How many? Enough to be significantly remembered in 5-10 years?

In the past 5 or so years though, I've noticed that eve...

Hmm - we've pretty thoroughly hijacked this thread. Perhaps one of the mods could split this into its own thread? It's just hard to believe that a 22.5 MHz ARM7DI would get less than 3 MIPS. Just look at the charts... even the early architectures got better MIPS at much lower clock rates. http://en...
