Re: Missing defines in libnds

Unfortunately Chris Double's tutorials are badly out of date now. Please use the examples supplied by the installer for reference.

http://patater.com/manual may also be useful. Patater usually keeps up to date with releases.

Re: buildscripts-20081212 problems

The PATH setting isn't actually necessary, the template makefiles are designed to work from the other variables and avoid potential conflicts by having several cross compilers in the path at the same time.

Thanks for adding the variables on the wiki though.

Re: buildscripts-20081212 problems

No idea, sorry. Possibly something odd with your setup. Unfortunately it's hugely difficult to debug buildscript failures blind. It's likely that some of your dev tools aren't new enough versions to compile the components. Do the binaries work? http://wiki.devkitpro.org/index.php/Getting_Started/dev...

Re: libnds 1.3.1 - FIFO Problem

Pretty much, yes. There are cheaper devices than the DS that do a much better job of video than the DS ever will.

Re: libnds 1.3.1 - FIFO Problem

Honestly I think you're really wasting your time with anything of this nature. As things stand the arm7 has a total of 96K for user code & data. If you start having the arm7 accessing main RAM frequently in order to use extra memory for other things then you will have a dramatic effect on the speed ...

Re: libnds 1.3.1 - FIFO Problem

well the march flag was the culprit, c double checked it even without irqinit. Checked & double checked here, the FIFO code works fine regardless of -marm or -mthumb in either makefile of a combined project. and yes, usually i would use the default arm7 core but i need my own code in arm7 for speci...

Re: Problems with latest devkitARM

So here are some of the examples, that work with recent libnds. Soon, these too will be outdated! But when they are, there will be examples included with libnds! So, once that happens again these will be useless! but for now, people still want them, so here they are: And soon was a few weeks ago at...

Re: Is recently version very slow??

removing -mthumb from ARCH in the Makefile seems to solve the problem here Solve what problem exactly? The OP's problem was that iDeaS doesn't run binaries created with the latest tools & libs. Compiling code as ARM will have zero effect on that. any idea what the side effects of that are? Larger c...

Re: Question on dmaCopy usage

Don't get confused between how the length is specified and how the data gets copied internally. We did it this way so that the user doesn't have to compensate for the copy size - memcpy works this way too, where source & dest are aligned properly then the copy will be in 4 byte chunks.
