I haven't been around at all but wow GuyPerfect, that's quite a nice initiative to start a Patreon! I'll try to spread the word around as well. :)

I've been learning more about the VB's sound capabilities, as well as making samples that would be possible on the VB, and then using them in a sample-based tracker similar to MilkyTracker. So it's more or less like what you're talking about, DogP.

But there is a limit to this, and that is: you'll just be making music that *sounds* (almost) exactly like what you can get on the VB. You won't be able to actually get it on the VB unless you went through the effort of coding a player for every intricacy a complex sample-based tracker provides. Something like Deflemask or Famitracker would definitely be closer to what I'd say everyone wants, because it provides everything you need to both make the music and get it exported into something you can put into your homebrew.

And the video L__E__T posted is exactly that... It'd be VERY exciting if something like that were freely available. :)

You're quite good at pixel art, and it really shows in this game. Really looking forward to it. :)

Yes, but you'd have to compile Mednafen yourself. Luckily, Mednafen's emulation cores are also available for RetroArch, for which there is a Mac OSX version here.

I don't have a Mac, but the instruction should be:
- Install the DMG package
- Run RetroArch
- Load Content > Select File and Detect Core > navigate to your VB ROMs and select the one you want to play.

Enjoy. :) You might have to set up RetroArch a bit to your likings first.

This is very neat! It definitely looks like it would work well in 3D, too. :)

Hiya. I know I'm kind of detached from the community and stuff and mostly lurk, but I've been reading your posts on your plans and progress occasionally, and have some comments of my own!

First off, it is really a pity that you lost such useful work. I personally was looking forward to especially the audio composer. But I am also confident that even with this setback, you will succeed. :)

Quote:
The vote quickly went to git for this one, but actually setting up a git repository isn't one of those things I've experienced, so I had to look into making it happen. There's a few options out there, but I'm okay waiting on KR155E to install git-hosting software like he wants to do eventually.

Meaning yeah, for now, no git repository of any kind. And that's just fine, since it's me working on the project alone. (-:

If I were you, I'd start setting up a local Git repository as early as you can anyway. Like, right now. The nice thing about Git is that repositories can live individually on peoples' computers until the changes are pushed to the main online repository.

The thing is, if you start committing your changes to your local repo sooner rather than later, then you will be able to push not just your code, but every single revision with all of its log comments. That would be very beneficial for other interested developers to see more quickly what you've done, how and where you've done it, and what still needs to be done. It also makes it easier for yourself to revert/branch off any experiments you might be trying out. Although you probably have a system for yourself in place for that anyway. :)

(As for Git hosting: Github is a great place to host this on too, just so you know! An amazing amount of projects is hosted on there, including heavyweights like the Linux kernel, for example.)

Edit: I found this page on why using Git sooner rather than later is probably a good idea, too.

This is amazing. Really, there's nothing about this thing that I don't love.

Morintari notified me of this a few days ago. And holy moly. This looks, in one word, amazing.

Can't wait to get my hands dirty on it once I get the opportunity.

This is freakin' sweet. Never would have expected to see this on VB (no, I don't lurk enough to have known about the last attempt. :P).

Really, great job on this. :)

It's not likely Nike doing anything; they have a proper marketing model and little need to advertise through spambots. My guess it's just spambots being spambots and trying to misguide you into going to a site that looks related to Nike.

That said, I've never seen the spam. I guess they are deleted before I arrive...
