Re: How would development work.

I want to know if there was a guide to how to develop on Pokemon Mini or if there is an engine that can be easy to develop with. I am thinking of buying a Pokemon Mini with a DITTO Mini.

Re: Multiboot for DITTO mini

I think you always need to remember the last started game to solve those powering on issues. As some games will keep their state when you power off and on again. Unfortunately that is probably not possible. The reason for this is that the power to the cart is cut once the power button is pressed, t...

Re: Multiboot for DITTO mini

Initial issues with freezing were solved for most part...

Many other features could be added too. Those that I'd like are: remembering the last started game and restart it by pressing "B", backup and restore saves, dumping the BIOS, transferring games between two consoled over IrDA...

Re: BIOS dumper for DITTO mini

A side note - it is an example how to calculate CRC32. It could be useful for other checks - consistency of a save data for instance. Second side note - too much writing to either Pokemon mini saves or flash cart itself is deteriorating their life. It is not so small - the flash specs say at least 1...

The BIOS will be in the first 4K of that file. Cutting the first 4K can be...
