i got a few questions maybe you guys can answer them.

can i compile a *.bin full of map's pal's cel's

with a main.c to include them all

and rename it mpc.bin

and compile all the 3d c files in another bin

and rename it to sgl3d.bin

and my main bin is 0a.bin

so----

in my main.c from 0a.bin can i do:

load the file mpc.bin

and call the arrays from the compiled maps and cels and pals offa this mpc?

is this all possible? did i explain this correctly?

also!

if i load a bin, thats all? or will it show automaticly?

also, if you guys dont know....please at least reply with 'i dont know' but if you do know, help

thanks guys...........

also, what program for 2d exporting should i use for sprites?

i use toss for map,cel,pal

what about the ones that does *.c and on top it says

// something .raw

unsigned short afsd[]={..............};

unsigned long int afsdsize=1024;

????

i need it to make my enemies on my demo

SSCONV from C.Doty

For the others questions, I don't know ... but wasn't it the last projet of VBT ?
 
Should be possible ... I don't know

But why do you want to make .bin for your 3d and sprites ? Bin is for binary executable. These files could be simple data files that you explicitly read from the cd at runtime in order to load them at a fixed memory address, so they don't need to be compiled.

I'm note sure I understand what you eventually want to do.

also have you guys ever loaded more than 24-bits BMP?

I don't use this one ...

Not yet ...

Still lot of things to try

If I remember right, the saturn can handle 5 planes scrolling ... I'd like to code a little something with this idea in mind (shadow of the beast ?)

No, because the Saturn doesn't handle more than 24 bit pictures.

Look at CyberWarriorX Bitmap test #2 here

That will show you how to use 24 bit pictures, but not any with more than that. You should be aware that pictures with a depth of 24bit will be large, and you might run into trouble making your program fit if there are many.
