Re: Tempest is possible

@Jubatian - Yes using your bootloader SD stuff to get start sector and Byte/Sector addressing flag. Then just fast streaming with the old routines. @d3thAdd3r - I have gone back to the post above and added how many bytes I think each feature will take if I have an idea. I started out this week with ...

Re: Tempest is possible

So I am doing a bit of an update/refresh to Tornado 2000. Now that Jubatians SD routines are in the bootloader and have CRC checking I can move some other data out of flash onto SD card and get some extra space back. The main movie and title screen stuff still has to run without CRC checking for spe...

What is the Uzebox DTV? It doesn't seem to get a mention in the usual places ie on the UB download page.

Re: Several newb questions

Regarding alternatives - I don't think there are any with as much support / following. It is fairly easy to make your own retro console. There are heaps of them on the net. It is hard to make one with a successful community that lasts more than a decade. I don't think anyone else apart from Alec has...

Re: Several newb questions

Danboid, You should be able to just run the Uzebox of the 5v from USB. The UzeDTV does this.

Do you have any plans for what game/games you would like to have a crack at?

Re: Several newb questions

HDMI would be possible as there are ICs that could replace the AD723 and output 480i. However all the ones I have looked at are wafer scale packages so not at all soldering at home friendly. I would recommend if you wanted to use an atari style joystick plug that you do a conversion to a serial prot...

Re: Tempest is possible

Warning to everyone.

Now that a few people are playing T2K a bit more a nasty bug has been confirmed.

The count of remaining enemies on the level get corrupted and you get stuck at the end of a level unable to complete it.

I am working on hunting down this bug and a few others at the moment.

Re: Tempest is possible

Got a few positive responses. So I went ahead and fixed up the code so it could support SD and SDHC at the same time.

Give it a try and tell me if its all good.

I'm going to go try finish super hexagon now.

Edit: Added a fix for cards that where too slow to load the title screen in V-Blank

Re: Tempest is possible

I've tried adding SDHC support to T2K. This hacked version can only support SDHC as I am not yet taking into account byte/sector addressing differences. I just want to see that other people can run it on their SDHC cards on real hardware. If I get majority thumbs up I will fix it up so it does SD/SD...
