The Future...

Post  BlueCrab on Thu Mar 31, 2011 10:05 pm

Just figured I'd repost this from the main Sylverant site, in case you all don't check there... I'm too lazy to change the text any, so just go with it:

So, I guess I can make the monthly post of no value now, right? Anyway, you probably noticed that not much changed around here this past month. While I can sit around and make excuses for it (busy with real life, classes, work, etc) its all just been a huge sham. Really, the reason is that Iíve been pursuing my true love in programming: programming for the Sony Playstation 2. In fact, Iíve decided to drop working on anything related to Dreamcast or PSO entirely. Why? It interferes with my true ambitions in programming. Iíd rather have the time to devote to what I love than continuing this sham that Iíve been putting on.

The site will be repurposed in the coming days as an anime blog. Why? Because I have this great logo to use for it, all ready to go:



Isnít it lovely? Anyway, thatís all I have to say for now, in this last of the monthly updates.

It's March 31 here, so it must be true.

I hope you're developing PS2 PSO now. Very Happy

Of course. I mean... really, could anyone ever see me going into PS2 programming? That community seems to be even less active than the Dreamcast community.

Well it would be cool to see a psu pserver >_>...

Then again you have to put in mind that ps2 producing was relatively cheap, even back then. Edit: or i could be wrong.

Never played it, so I don't have much of an interest. Also, random note, but there is an open-source PSU server out there already (granted, its written in Erlang).

awww... too bad... I hoped you try to programm a anime style, round-based PSO-RPG *g* Saw once a flash made "fake" of a game called pso wars if i remember correct. (in fact wasnt a game, just pretending doing some animations)

btw... the first private psu server i have seen started only a few months atfer releasing psu, so it had not to be difficult to make. Only the official patches were delayed, so only a little group used it. But now were psu is completely dead who even cares.

This thread is such lol!

Isn't the PS2 much harder to program than the Dreamcast, though? I thought the Dreamcast was one of the (if not the) easiest console to program for... ??? (Unless of course, it's the Xbox, being Windows-based and all, but, then again, the Dreamcast has Windows CE compatibility...)

From what I've heard, it is a bit of a pain to program for, yes.

I thought the Dreamcast was one of the (if not the) easiest console to program for... ??? (Unless of course, it's the Xbox, being Windows-based and all, but, then again, the Dreamcast has Windows CE compatibility...)
Ah, the old Windows CE argument. People seem to misunderstand what that meant in the end. Basically, Microsoft provided an SDK based on Windows CE (and DirectX) for the Dreamcast. Its not built-in, and most things didn't use it. It was slower than using the native SDK (for obvious reasons), and there were really no good compelling reasons to do so. Also, using it without a license would be illegal (much like with the official SDK), so very few homebrew programmers use/used it.

KallistiOS on the other hand, the homebrew "SDK" for the Dreamcast, is fairly easy to program. Its simple and clean, and makes homebrew programming quite easy, in my opinion (then again, I may be a bit biased here). That's really why I have stuck with the Dreamcast in the way that I have: there are legal tools that are easy to use and they are still maintained (even if I'm the main person maintaining them).

Well from a 3d modeler, Programming for the ps2 isn't hard, that is if you have a full development team working with you. The way I see people saying it's "Hard" is most likely because they most likely try to learn it and program things by themselves. I mean if BlueCrab had a full team on his side, they could have probably gotten to a near perfect state of cross compatibility between v2/v3

really. Although I could be wrong, since I always seen game development by a team and never really thought there was any, to no one person team.

Dealing with that is still on the table, but it's such a massive project that it has to wait until a summer when there's lots of time to work on it.

Indeed, though I was just giving an example. rawr.
