So, the past few days on #serioushax @ Caffienet on IRC, I’ve been talking to Seru-kun for a bit. He was interested in making a Satellaview homebrew app, and was asking me for help. Typical of me, I had to have an obvious blank spot in my research somewhere, so I wasn’t as helpful as I could’ve been… but eventually he got something out!
This app is most notable for, besides the fact that it’s the first homebrew Satellaview app I’ve seen, filling in info on a blank spot in the Satellaview Header Data that I didn’t know of before. Check the section on “Pointers”. Yes, I kinda didn’t know that before. Seru-kun eventually figured it out on his own. Rather embarrassing. D:
The ROM boots on BSNES. Kinda doubt there’s a way to test it on a actual BS-X cartridge at the moment, and there may not be as long as the only methods would involve destroying old packs… but hey, a man can dream, yes?
In the meantime, Seru-kun and I are talking about the potential benefits and limitations of working homebrew on Satellaview. He may soon release yet another homebrew app that uses the Satellaview-specific registers to some degree. And maybe this time I won’t be missing important information…. nah, I probably will. pft.
