But yet again, that 16-frame system might work. You just need the value of the angle of the camera, and you’re pretty much good to go.

What's better, dithering, or over-transparency? In my opinion, I would choose something that is real vdp1 transparency, and not the same screen door method that's been used since the genesis. The designers never had the intention of the output being precise, but with s-video, I would rather stick to real transparency, simply because it gives the Saturn a chance of having transparency. Oh, yeah, and I think the n64 can only do 50% transparency because mario in sm64 uses dithering when using a secret warp, so we shouldn't get too ahead of ourselves.

But now we have more efficient compilers, letting all of these great ideas become more possible, and worth the while, to break the rumor that the SS can't do transparency. ;) Now that we know that transparent shading is possible, let's sit back and wait a couple of weeks for sonic z-treme to be released, to get the movement of hombrews for the saturn. Oh, what a time to be alive!

What if we just ask an sh-2 to make a distorted version of the shadow to be displayed as a sprite with affine transformation?

Another thing to do would be to make the shadow out of rows of squares, like the fm towns marty’s “3d” sphere, and let the further sprites be smaller to make a rough resemablance of perspective distortion.

I know, I’ve seen perspective corrected sprites have a kind of moire pattern, but maybe that is a desirable result for some things, like for dust.

But a shadow’s just one color, so it shouldn’t matter that much

So, to prevent someone from finding out that you're using mix ratios for metal sonic, can you use NBG2 as a mirrored version of NBG1, and set the mix ratio to that?

Wait, if the ps1 used affine texture mapping for everything 3d, and if the shadow looks the same even with the warping, why didn't any developers program shadow polygons to turn off perspective correction (calculating q value, tessellation, etc.) on the Saturn?

How do I emulate the sound board? I know it's possible because a person made interaction between GEMS in DOSbox and Gens before. Can we do the same with Yabause and Basilisk II?

I don’t understand how a barrel shifter takes up a lot of space on a die, but I guess it’s enough to even make the dsp for the n64 have no barrel shifter for the new instructions. Comparisons aside, is the RAM for the dsp slower than the RAM for the sh-2’s?

Why are dsp’s so hard to grasp, demonstrated especially by the infamous difficulty of programming the dsp’s on the Jaguar?

What’s stopping us from obtaining the source code from him?

Would this become a full game after sage?

Does that include the loop-de-loop physics?
