GetDeviceOpTab ?

Hello, there. I'm investigating a bug in my code that could be due to diropen() 's behaviour to have changed over the last few years. I used to provided it with a relative path, e.g. diropen(".") for reading the root directory of the default FAT device -- typically my microSD card in a R4 linker. I ...

Re: Pong for beginners

There's certainly options to have the same "data file" used for both screen's background. However, the two screens have their own video memory and cannot peek on each other's memory to retrieve the contents to be displayed, so at best, you'd have something like dmaCopyHalfWords(DMA_CHANNEL, fieldTop...

Re: defaultArm7 r4239 fails to support wifiInitDefault() ?

Thanks for taking the time to read & respond. Not so many people around me have an opinion on those subjects ^_^ How do you need to modify libnds for that? Hmm ... now that you ask ... I might have just copy-pasted the libnds gurumeditation function into myguru.C and then alter that. .. I'll think a...

Re: arm-eabi-gdb unable to disassemble thumb code ?

Thanks, yeah. I figured out yesterday that it affected not only thumb ARM, but all the code, and that there was a trivial patch on the Ubuntu launchpad.

Sorry for the trouble. Now, I'll have to find out how to avoid those stalls with desmume's GDB stub :P

arm-eabi-gdb unable to disassemble thumb code ?

I use ddd for debugging, a front-end to gdb that was previously capable of working quite well with arm-eabi-gdb. With devkitarm 32, however, it looks like it is no longer able to disassemble Thumb code. At last, it complains about "A syntax error in expression, near `<hex address>'. The hex address ...

Re: defaultArm7 r4239 fails to support wifiInitDefault() ?

I'm also disappointed to see that you're still labouring under the misapprehension that devkitPro has versions - we're a toolchain vendor, not a software package. That being said, the project could use some clearer presentation of the motivation, what we do / what we don't do, who could use what. E...

Re: [newbie] Have idea planned out, is it workable?

Unless I haven't fully understood your constraints, it looks like a regular tiled background, but scaled so that a 8x8 tile occupy 6x6 pixels could have worked as well.

Re: defaultArm7 r4239 fails to support wifiInitDefault() ?

What would the implication of an (accidental) extra call to irqInit() in that regards ? Iiuc, irqInit() is now part of the system initialisation code that is called before main(), right ? shouldn't it become a library-internal function to avoid chaos ? @wintermute: yes, clearly, trying to do ARM7 in...

Re: examples for consoleNew, consoleInit, etc?

But I also think there is another way. It depends on how you parse things. You could say that the documentation is less confusing if it confuses you less, right? And it would confuse you less if you ignored it (which you should do because documentation is out of date as soon as it is written). I th...
