Boardness

Refactored a bit of the PSP demo code. Menus, the board, etc.

Eat some more bandwidth with this video of an effect applied to the entire game board.

Space Money

I got a little reprieve from parenting duties this weekend, so here's the latest build of the PSP demo. I'm using Visual Studio to code and build for testing on Win32, then compiling against the PSPSDK and uploading to the real hardware. So far no major problems have come up, although it would be easier to have display lists working for using the...

Homebrew you say? Yay!

My new job affords me a couple of interesting perks. One of which happens to be a decent library of games along with their respective console hardware. After talking to my cube neighbor, the local PSP aficionado, I became interested in the PSP homebrew scene.

I had scanned them to learn texturing/material application in 3DS Max, but somehow they got shuffled off into nested folder oblivion. So...

A foray into the less-than-well-known

So this weekend, after a bit of hacking, I've got an x86 machine running Max OSX. It's truly a weird thing to behold, having both a shiny aluminum G5 chassis and a semi-plain Dell Dimension case sitting next to each other running the same operating system.

Previous builds of my game framework using Universal Binaries on the G5 presented no problem,...
