Wherein one of the developers of Dance Dance Revolution offers to release a baremetal c graphics library he developed for the game and ported to the pi
Wherein said developer drops the code
(big bonus for bitbank's bitchen forum sig)
@djsundog dance dance revolution? for windows CE?!
@slipstream they were very heady days, money was everywhere
@slipstream (or it matched the target arcade hardware close enough to be useful?)
@djsundog according to wikipedia, the arcade hardware was based on the PSX (later, the PS2, and later still, PC hardware)
@slipstream huh, dunno then, but I bet it'd be an interesting tale
@slipstream perhaps a dreamcast tale even
@djsundog i don't think many devs used win CE for dreamcast.
@slipstream @djsundog I would guess it made more sense for an arcade game since they could probably put more CPU and memory in it, making the ease of development/resource overheard tradeoff work.
@slipstream looking at his linkedin looks like he's an image processing optimization (and optimization overall) monster - motorola, ibm, microsoft, private consulting
