Thanks for the updates.

I rebuilt my little project with the latest releases and have unfotunately lost my sound.

Sound worked with (binaries from SF):
- devkitARM r31
- libnds 1.4.3
- default arm7 0.5.12
- etc..

Sound not working with (binaries from SF):
- devkitARM r31
- libnds 1.4.5
- default arm7 0.5.13
- etc..

After digging around a bit, I discovered that the new default arm7 was the culprit. I took a look at default_arm7-src-0.5.13.tar.bz2 and found this line:

Code: Select all

*(vu16*)(0x04004700) = (1<<14) | 0x08;
The interesting part is that this line isn't in SVN. I couldn't really figure out what that address is either. My guess is that this is what's breaking the sound for me.

P.S. I didn't submit a bug report for this because it's not in SVN and I'm not sure if it's supposed to be there or not.

according to gbatek, the 04000000h range is for I/O ports.

according to sourceforge, there has been a new default arm7 binary released 2 hours ago. so try updating and see if that fixes it.

if that doesn't work, you could try building the default arm7 binary from svn and see if that works. that should tell us if it already has been fixed in svn or not.

btw, are you using maxmod for sound or something else.

and WinterMute, my nickname is vuurrobin. double 'u', double 'r' and preferebly all lowercase.

edit: you also might want to update the docs at http://libnds.devkitpro.org/

0x04004700 is a DSi register, something I was testing and apparently didn't create the dist tarballs before reverting to svn code, sorry. Fixed with latest release.

libnds online docs were updated on Monday, clear your browser cache. I should probably look at preventing the online docs from being cached since it looks like the filenames change when things are updated.

Nick fixed, sorry.

libnds was also updated for that stupid console issue :/

Haave the "time" and "gmtime" functions been removed from this version of the library?

My code that previously compiled now says "warning implicit declaration of function " for both time and gmtime

I look in the sys folder for libnds and there is no time.h file.

they work for me.

check if you call the functions right, time takes an parameter.


and time.h is part of the c standard library, not libnds. is it is somewhere in the devkitARM directory.

Thanks

I inclkuded time.h and all fixed now.
Seems one of the include files from the library must have previously included time.h so no errors previously.
