Very depressing. :( Now Portugal 'B' have to face England. I don't see them winning it without Deco.

Btw, the referee was absolutely horrible, I hope they send him home.

I think you need to do something like:

Code: Select all

poly_cxt.gen.culling = PVR_CULLING_CW; (or)
poly_cxt.gen.culling = PVR_CULLING_CCW;
CW means clockwise and CCW counterclockwise.

I don't think the PVR can render wireframes (maybe you could fake lines by drawing thin polygons). Drawing only backfaces should work though:

Code: Select all

glEnable(GL_CULL_FACE);
glCullFace(GL_FRONT);

I used to watch a show called "MTV's Most Wanted" on MTV Europe, hosted by a guy called Ray Cokes. This was in the early 90s. Anyone else old enough to remember that?

Thanks to those who voted for DreamChess. :)

I haven't had a lot of time to work on it recently as I've been working on FreeSCI for a university project. But hopefully the first official release of DreamChess will be some time this summer.

I've never been able to get the PVR to give me a 1:1 mapping. I assumed it would always filter even if the image happened to be the exact 'right' size. I guess I'll have to give that another shot.

The most logical explanation would be that whatever you're compiling doesn't actually use SDL_mixer (note that SDL_mixer is not a requirement for SDL sound support).

I editted my post so it probably wasn't there yet when you read it. ;)

Anyway, the patch problem is a major bug. Even a single-threaded program could deadlock in libc because of it, So even if it turns out that it's unrelated, it's still worth fixing.

Has it? The link I pasted above still seems to work. The repository moved a while ago from http://www.allusion.net to svn.allusion.net.

I experienced weird lockups once and tracked it down to a bug in the newlib patch (this took literally hours to track down). Ofcourse it doesn't have to be related to your problem, but just in case, make sure that you're not using the newlib patch with the bug. The version in KOS SVN has been fixed ...

I had a Live subscription in the past, mainly to play Top Spin and PGR2. It was fun in the beginning, but few people play those games on Live these days, so I cancelled my subscription. If I want to play a game against a friend now I just use Kai.

You have the online multiplayer aspect, for which the servers are either hosted on player's Xboxes, or by the game's developers. Microsoft does not host any servers (except for their own games, obviously). Microsoft simply supply the master server listings (I think), which is pretty much transparen...

It should be noted that the DSNES team is very skilled. It will most likely take a lot of time and effort to significantly improve upon DSNES.

check the bridges on the cpu, maybe you have a cpu that was hacked for overclocking and a connection burned after years of good work. It's not very likely that it was hacked.

My reasoning is the following: The CPU has a locked multiplier, If the motherboard would erroneously set the multiplier to 6.5 the PC would not boot because of that. As it does boot, the culprit must be the CPU itself. I tried to google for this problem but I found almost nothing. Most 'My CPU is ru...
