I played a bit of Silent Hill (U) today. The game appears to play very well, but with a graphical glitch.




In another scene, the main character doesn't have the weird glitch box.

That looks quite similar to the moon glitch in Symphony of the Night (also a KCET developed game).

I vaguely recall having a problem like that in Mednafen with Silent Hill a long time ago, I think it had something to do with proper mask bit/bit15 handling(maybe in regards to blending?), but I may be wrong.

No, you're right. Rewriting the GPU has been on my todo list for a long while now, but I want to get the DMA model sorted first. Which has meant me taking on SCSI/IDE first (something the console emulators haven't had to worry about).

Leaving it broken is my way of retaining interest in the project, because at some point I'll have something visible to show for the work.

Sometimes I wish I had any clue on how to work on stuff like this smile

1. Learn how to program
2. Learn how computers work
3. Write a program that mimics how a computer works

Yeah, I know. But that probably won't work in MAX/MSP :p
(the only programming-environment I can still totally bend at my will)

I understand Programming-logic, and I did spent ages reading
http://mamedev.org/source/src/mame/drivers/enterrandomdriver.c.html
and when reading it, it makes sense. But how to build it from the ground up looks a bit overwhelming, leaving me with no idea where to even start.

Aaah, all in good time. First: Design Hard & Software for the pinball machine I Built laugh

Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee (PAL) is playable now. Not sure exactly when that happened, but it didn't work last time I tried.

Capcom games have the graphics corruption on the right side of the edge of the game screen. Just like that game have. smile
