The mode-7 thing was just seeing if it could be done. It might eventually warp into something.

I'll probably focus on a smaller game, to get something going.

I've spent too much time trying to find the ideal next project.

All my activities have pretty much slowed to a crawl. I'm hoping to get back into it over the next month or so. The Stanley Cup Playoffs (NHL) might slow things down quite a bit, though.

What prevents the 605 player from not using the shell, when extra memory is not enabled?

By playing with the pixel repeat counts and display line start addresses, you can get the video hardware to double the memory pixels both horizontally and vertically, effectively reducing the screen resolution by a factor of two for the area. Before I tried horiz. doubling the pixels, and it looked...

Will it be possible to eliminate the need for alternate scan lines or is that a necessary evil to make this work? [/url] It's an attempt to lighten the load on the cpu. It only has to do half of the work each time. It shouldn't be alternating though. it should be consistently only drawing every oth...

Can you tell something more about it? How you got on the idea, how long you've worked on it, is multiplayer possible? Do you use the DVC capabilities? I wanted to try something a 'little more challenging' for the CDi, so I came up with the idea of trying to do a Mode 7 style racing game. I've been ...

Would you play a Mode 7 style racer?

I'm attempting to get a Mode 7 (Similar to F-Zero) rendering engine working on the CDi. I've uploaded an early version: http://www.rastersoft.net/project/ This is not fast enough for a game, but futher optimizations may help. Another option would be a fighting game similar to Ballz. Currently I'm re...

I really enjoy Frog Feast and now have a new game to look forward to in 2008 - can't wait. I got a step closer last night, as I was able to verify that my sprite compiler was generating working data. This should make any additional games a lot faster, or I can draw more objects. I've got a few more...

I'm not sure at this point. Right now I'm focusing on the fighting stuff, as this seems to be the biggest part of the game.

Small, subtle but qualitative and good looking. I want more! I'll put up a video if I have a little more time... Yep, it was something quick to show that the game could possibly work on the CD-i.

I have most of the 3D resources for it, but nothing else has been done.
