Re: dcload-ip with DHCP support!

No arguing there. Although because I explicitly compiled with enable-languages=c, I don't have g++ to test, let alone any Dreamcast-related projects that make use of C++ to any real capacity. I don't see offhand why it wouldn't work, but in this situation I can't really test it... In other news, I c...

Re: Sonic Adventure New Year's 1998 "Kadomatsu" DLC

Hmm... Looks like it's here: https://www.dreamcastlive.net/sonic-adventure-dlc.html The VMI file isn't the one I made, though. Maybe they've had it this whole time and no one knew? More interestingly, is it the "bug fixed" version? Whatever bug(s) got fixed I have no idea, but the version I uploaded...

Re: dcload-ip with DHCP support!

No clue, sorry; I don't really use C++. They've actually upgraded the warning system in GCC 9. I wasn't expecting it since I've been using GCC 7 & 8 for other things, but it's a really nice change. A cool unrelated thing about GCC is that on x86-64 it can even regularly beat Intel's C compiler, alth...

Re: Maple device questions

It's probably something to do with this: mkisofs -G $IP_PATH -C 0,11702 -J -l -r -o $PROG.iso . cdi4dc $PROG.iso $PROG.cdi Although apparently that's the same set of arguments bootmake_cdi4dc uses. Maybe someone made some changes in the code of one of the programs that broke something? In any case, ...

Re: dcload-ip with DHCP support!

Just a quick update: I've managed to build GCC-9.2.0 SH4 and it works! :) Let me tell you, it's soooo much nicer than GCC 4.7.3, since you can use modern compiler options and directives, plus the warning display is much better. Attaching a rather minimal and hastily written text file of the command ...

Twin Stick is "Twin Stick" Fishing rod is "Dreamcast Fishing Controller" I think your latest program has some kind of bug when displaying Thumbstick 2, as shaking the fishing controller around shows "Left Trigger act-" appended to Thumbstick 2's text display whenever thumbstick 2 shows up (Left Trig...

Alright, so the "pause" button is actually mapped to the "D" button. Start is Start. Right stick is dpad2 Right stick trigger is A Right stick button is B Left stick is dpad1 Left stick trigger is X Left stick button is Y Also, I wasn't sure how to burn your CDI and it didn't work for me, so I repac...

Re: dcload-ip with DHCP support!

I did; it's a couple posts up. PMCR_R1.zip has one in it. I wrote up instructions inside the commands.c file about usage, as well. It's right above the definition of the cmd_pmcr() function: // The 6 perfctr functions are: /* void init_pmctr(int which, unsigned short mode); // Clear existing counter...

Re: Maple device questions

No, the Saturn sticks just appear to the system as a standard Saturn controller.

The Dreamcast sticks appear to the dreamcast as a controller that has 2-pads and no analog stick. So I think pause might be mapped to something specific. I have twin sticks if you have something you want to test.

Re: Maple device questions

Don't know about the first question, but the DC's twin sticks use 2 d-pads. The triggers and buttons on top are mapped to ABXY, and the Pause button is somehow different from the Start button (which is just normal Start, I think? It doesn't pause in VO:OT, I guess because it detects a Twin Stick and...

Re: dcload-ip with DHCP support!

Sorry for the shorthand confusion with dctool/dctool-ip. I'm getting this all setup on my end to test. I'm familiar with x86 perf counters, so I'm pretty excited to try this out. Only bummer is that it would seem this would be impossible to use with dctool-serial. Or... hm... EDIT: wait, I'm dumb l...

Well, oh boy do I have some interesting news. I was trying to figure out what I could do to solve #2 today, and I discovered something very interesting. Using the -fno-strict-aliasing flag SLOWS DOWN THE PERF COUNTERS BY 11-12x!!!!!!!!!! Evidently GCC turns on strict-aliasing by default or something...

I'm loving this topic, please keep posting as you find more information, this is pretty great!

Re: dcload-ip with DHCP support!

I finally figured out how to send commands to DCLOAD! It requires netcat/ncat and a raw payload file. Use this on Windows ( requires downloading ncat, which is part of the nmap package here ): ncat -4 -u [Dreamcast's IP] < [path to payload] Using a tool like Wireshark to view the response packets, t...

Just a note--you might be able to use that CDI as it is in its current state.

Ok, so I did it. It's working. Need to buy more CD-Rs to finish beating up some bugs that are mainly due to memory size constraints. DCLOAD-IP will have DHCP soon, as well as some other neat things I put in. I went a little crazy and implemented the ENTIRE IPv4 DHCP PROCESS into it. Yes, that includ...
