PaRappa the Rapper HuCard Edition
« on: January 22, 2020, 01:27:11 PM »
Hi,

I just joined a few days ago and I am starting to learn about the system. Arkhan on Discord suggested I create PaRappa the Rapper for HuCard. He had this to say:

You left out
KICK PUNCH CHOP I GOT THE FUNKY FLOW M I X THE FLOUR INTO THE BOWL
and yeah OldMan had jokingly-ish said he'd like to do karaoke or CD+G rhythm game stuff and Parappa came up, but that was awhileeeee ago, and I don't think he really has any intention of digging that up and running with it.

I'd support any homebrew, but I don't much care for any rhythm games and I think hucards are a bad choice compared to cheap and simple CDs.

For those who are wondering what game we're talking about, it's this one:

I would make a CD-ROM2 game, but I just joined a day ago, so I really want to start simple. How difficult is it to make a CD-ROM2/Super CD/Arcade CD game?

Easier than a HuCard game kind of, because you have way more storage and don't have to worry about that as much. lol

Wouldn't you have to learn how to program for the CD-ROM2 as well as the system itself? It's not like you have premade subroutines and could just do:
Code: [Select]
    jsr ReadGfxDisk
    jsr ShowGfxDisk
    jsr ReadPCMDisk
    jsr PlayPCMDisk
    etc...
You would have to learn how stuff works and write the subroutines myself/yourself.

I'm not a programmer (I'm lucky if can get my microwave to stop blinking 12:00), but I doubt CDs are much more difficult to program.  There's maybe a dozen 'full' homebrew games released so far, and 3/4 are CDs; there's also several smaller demos and utilities that were released as ISOs or both ROMs and ISOs.

Anything with commented source code or at least a library with premade subroutines for the CD-ROM2?

There's a bios rom with those sorts of routines, so it's close to as simple as that haha. But yeah, you need to know how the base system works before attempting CD stuff.
