Re: Is there a limit on the storage of a Hu-card?

Gravis keep your thoughts to yourself, the only thing stupid is you calling my idea stupid. How can you even prove what I said wrong without even trying it yourself. The PCE is a micromachine, and in comparison to even "Modern" machines it is just as modern. The whole point of game programming to do...

Re: Is there a limit on the storage of a Hu-card?

Given the assumtion that TOUKO is corrrect. The CD-rom cannot read from more then two places at once. You just gave me another idea, However back to this. Loading data from the Hu-card as if was Cd data. Lets ignore the fact the PCE even has a CD-rom add-on. Lets imagine that everything that is the ...

Re: Is there a limit on the storage of a Hu-card?

Then where does the data ( not the wav ) go from the CD-rom? The PC-Engine ( regular Hu-card games ) data is reading directly from the Hu-card. Cd data ( if any ) will be feed to the Hu-card. The PC-egine alone cannot be used to create the graphical games that consumers admire it for without additio...

Re: Dragon lair on the PCE?

There is this sherlock holmes game for the PCE, that is FMV. It is small and kind of choppy but it gets the job done. There is also 3x3 eyes ( that is a retelling of the first episode ), which is a Saturn styled Comic Adventure ( like Da Ja Vu ). However you make choices that could lead to game over...

Re: Is there a limit on the storage of a Hu-card?

It is going to be a surprise. It is part of the reason why I am intrested in the PC-engine. Well yes part of the system card will be reserved for the memory usage of data from the cd. However that might be removed, since the Cd ( as you said would only be playing music ). About loading only music fr...

Re: Is there a limit on the storage of a Hu-card?

Lets go back to the original idea. We want to load a game from a Hu-Card like a CD, while at the same time we can load data from the cd itself. Lets say. Stage is loaded from Cd, but the sprites is stored in Hu-card. When game load, it loads the stage like normal into memory( lighting fast ), then l...

Re: Is there a limit on the storage of a Hu-card?

Then what would make it appear the MP3, WAV, etc Track is playing from the CD while at the same time the data is being worked to load new data. That it is not MOD samples or anytthing of the sort. I am not talking about loading from a seperate data track. Honestly i barely notice the load times, and...

Re: Is there a limit on the storage of a Hu-card?

The point of loading from HU-card( PCB/ROM/ flash ) Think of it like this. The HU-card will be the main game, while the CD-rom stores media data like sound, video, and imgs. Smiluar to the way Star Ocean on the SNES works. It is limited to 32mbits but there is extra storage that goes way beyond it's...

Re: HuCard Protoboard request

Well I was thinking about the same thing. Where to get the boards from. The first thing we need to do is crack open our own PC engine games. Right now I have a cart. I will see if I can break it open, with an Exacto Blade maybe. Also have you tried asking other PC devers, about where they got there ...
