Re: KGL - create texture from buffer

I think there is a glTexImage2D(), but there is also this:

Code: Select all

/* KOS shortcut function (if you loaded your own texture) */
	void glKosTex2D(GLint internal_fmt, GLsizei width, GLsizei height,
	                pvr_ptr_t txr_address);

Re: SDL Dreamcast Question

In all honesty, I'd halfway be willing to blame it on a SDL bug. I haven't worked with SDL in ages, but it hasn't changed all that much either. Granted, I don't see anything in particular in your code there that would cause any issues (then again, I dunno how well the YUV stuff works in SDL, and it...

Re: Getting started with programming again/

Assuming you're talking about development of Dreamcast games... Best languages are C and C++. Best compiler is GCC 3.4.x (I believe I use 3.4.1). You'll also want KOS and some of the other add-on libraries for it. If you're a Windows user, check out the DCDev ISO. Otherwise, check out http://gamedev...

Re: Most Helpful Books?

I tried a few books and didn't really learn much. Also, I found C a bit easier to pick up, and that's generally the language I choose to use. I actually started with SDL tutorials. SDL isn't the best choice for something designed specifically for the Dreamcast (using the KOS API is going to give you...

Re: Highest resolution video application for dreamcast????

The last version of VC/DC can play VCD quality video pretty well, but not with any subtitles/onscreen text. Use TMPGenc with the default VCD template, with maybe upping the B-Frame count by one as the only exception. I never bothered with subtitles because the VCD standard doesn't allow for them, a...

Anyone know the best video application for the dreamcast that supports the highest resolution? I know there is VC/DC 0.2 released, but that only supports SVCD which is only 480x480. There is also uDCDivX, but I do not know what the highest resolution that can go up to. I know that the official DCDi...

Re: Video encoding help?

I know there's one to allow MPEG-2 input, and another for Quicktime. The free version of TMPGEnc has a trial period where it opens MPEG-2, so I'd have to demux, or frameserve the vob first. If I'm only resizing the VOB video that I ripped from my dvds to 352x240, or 320x240, what should be an accep...

Thanks for all the help. :grin: While I did read the VC/DC readme seeing the TMPGEnc recommendation, I found out it only accepted certain video types.

Re: Video encoding help?

With VC/DC, I would use a standard VCD resolution (352x240 for NTSC or 352x288 for PAL). The optimum bitrate is a bit subjective. Full-quality VCD movies should play and keep sync acceptably, but the player will be more likely to skip B-frames, which can make the video look jerky. Using a lower bitr...
