Ecernosoft Posted December 5, 2022 Share Posted December 5, 2022 Hello! Before you say, "@Ecernosoft, there is LITERALLY something on the LZ4 depacker and other depackers right below" I know. But how good are those for video? I want ICT4 to come on a 128K cart, and with the lynx having 64K of RAM (And some of that needing to be used up by the frame buffer) I was wondering how fast I could render? But, of course, I'm probably going to have 48K of RAM left after the double buffer screen and some of that will be used by the music/decompressor, so I'm thinking ~40K of compressed video. If I need to, I'll do 512K but it's probably going to be a quick FMV like sonic CD (Only, higher quality than sonic CD). I'll probably use the speed shoes song from this video (Start at 1:45) (67) Sonic vs Sanic - YouTube(67) Sonic vs Sanic - YouTube (Origonally I intended to use Sonic warrior but that's way too long) (Also really good) and if that's not possible I'll make something myself. (and before you say it, yes, I know origonal is better, but then again, it's not going to be nearly as good. I am pretty good at composing music, I can upload some of my auxy music to you if you want a listen, but that's auxy.) I think ICT4 and ICT5 will be lynx games (I want ICT4 to have 2 player support) so having an FMV would be awesome. If I can't have that, I'll see if I can get some Sonic 2 sms like titlecards instead (And you'll get to see my laughable hi-res drawing skills ) I mean, just look at this: ; That actually turned out better than I thought. This is a 160*102 pixel screen so this would appear in the lynx but comeon, that's bloody awful!!! It's funny just how bad it is! If I took more time (This was made in 5 minutes) it would look much better, but I'm going to bed in 45 minutes (It's 9:41 at the time of writing this) so I don't have an hour to spare. So, what are my options? Should I go with 512K (But then again, if 384K is just the FMV then what's the point?? it's probably going to be a short FMV. ) So, some questions: 1. What's the best depacker to use? 2. How much storage for the FMV, Depacker, and Music? 3. How many frames can I get? 4. How fast is it? 5. Is this practical? Thanks guys. ICT3 is almost done so I am very excited to get to work with this, especially if you guys are willing to help me. Big thanks to @Igor for helping me understand this machine!
