Tutorial: How to make a Dreamcast game using the Titan IDE.

Post#1 » Wed May 10, 2017 9:24 am

Hello my friends, my name is Luiz I have always been a fan of Dreamcast-Talk. I've been reading the posts here for years but I wasn't brave enough to post because I didn't know how to speak english :lol:

But now after some years studying and almost one year writing for Sega Nerds I think I'm ready to come out of the shadows LoL.


Edit 0.4+ released:

So, today I'd like to share with you a very humble tool I've created to make 2D platform games for the Dreamcast. The tool comes with a Sonic, Mega Man and two ShumUp templates I've created and I'm always updating it:



For some of you I think it will be not useful, but if you are a beginner I think here is a good opportunity to get into Dreamcast development. I hope you enjoy the tutorial:

And thanks again, I hope I can add something to this amazing forum.

I saw this on reddit a couple days ago! I really wish i was able to access this, it looks awesome :) thank you
If you want it, come and take it from me. If you think you can, you still dont know me.

I said it, i meant it, and i will always have the right to defend it.

If you plan to make a game for the Dreamcast and also want a version of the same game for PC we have good news.

The Titan IDE now comes with a template for PC Windows.

Practically using the same code with 5% of changes it’s possible to make the same game run on the Dreamcast and Windows.

For this you will need to update the compiler, and take a look at our tutorial which has been updated with the instructions on how to export to PC.

I'm very pleased that this project exists, this'll help a lot of gaming fans develop their own games for the Dreamcast and PC. Can't wait to see what else you have in store for Titan IDE as well! Keep up the good work. :)

I'm currently busy with my own indie project, but once I find a bit of free time, I will glady give it a spin! So far it looks great, keep up the great work!

Thanks a lot, this is what I'm working right now and I want to publish next month:

- Option to change the drive where it is installed

- Change the sprites size using the interface (Editable)

- Editable Tile Size

- Scrolling for the background

- Change transparency color to magenta

- Export images directly to BMP

- Return to the Dreamcast menu when you open a CD door.

- improve the enemy's Intelligence to follow the character.

I also will improve the graphics of that template, so people will get more interested!
