| ||3D graphical MUD Client||The client uses TCP/IP to connect to a server, which will provide strategic and tactical information regarding the game. Operational decisions are made by the client. The client supports audio using /dev/dsp, graphics using SPS2 (code by Jonathan "Kazan" Hobson), and uses both the pads and the keyboard as interfaces. It will allow people to talk to each other, fight each other and the monsters that are in the MUD, and solve any available quests (two so far).
Models are stored in Milkshape 3D format, textures in swizzled tm2 format and audio is currently in 11025 mono 8-bit format, though this could change later.
Players can move around with the directional buttons and the left stick, control the camera with the right stick, interact with the environment using the square button, fight using the cross button. Many other options (spells, option screens, mail boxes, et cetera) are available. See the file "CONTROLS" for details.
The project is currently looking for people that want to help coding and testing. Please contact me! (Contact me if you download the code, want to use the server, or for any other reason).||None|
| ||adam||As graphics hardware becomes faster, real time applications are starting to use high end production techniques, such as higher order surfaces, and procedural shading. Simlarlary users of production renderers are looking to use graphics acceleration, withouth compromising quality.
Adam is an attempt to produce a renderer which explores these converging areas of interest. It is based on the angel renderer (www.dctsystems.freeserve.co.uk), but is severely optimised to make use of the PS2 hardware.
It is RenderMan compatable.
| ||Advanced SPS2 Demos||This project contains various demos, effects and everything that may cross our minds and it's cool.
| ||Aidoru AI engine||Initially the project will consist of a vector unit accelerated AI engine for PS2 Linux. I hope to provide functionality for a few Neural Net architectures, A* and other pathfinding routines, various tree search methods, Prolog-style (but faster) logic, and various other useful AI game algorithms. Please view the README file for details and coding standards. If someone can donate some code/time, I would like to eventually add graphics and networking support to the engine.||None|
| ||DJ Revolution||DJ Revolution is a real time DJ simulation that uses the analog controller DualShock2 (for Playstation 2) to scratch, switch records and tracks, adjust pitch, volume, and effects, and generally just remix stuff on the fly. It supports customizable records with user defined tracks, reversable crossfaders with different tapers, and customizable textures for the turntables, mixers, and record labels. Scripts will be included for creating new records and converting tracks to the 48k stereo 16 bit signed audio format that must be used.
Eventually, I'd like to add in a bemani-style music game where you can battle your friends in 2 player mode||None|
| ||EffecTV for PS2||"EffecTV" is a real-time video effect processor.
You can enjoy movies, TV programs and any other video stream through the many amazing effects.
"EffecTV for PS2" is a specialized version for PlayStation2 Linux.
It uses the power of graphics processing of PlayStation2 to create
more amazing effect.||None|
| ||Elite Black Edition||Based on the tutorials provided by Dr H S Fortuna a remake of the 1980's classic 'Elite' for the SONY PlayStation 2 Linux Development Kit. In the initial release only the original game will be available, ie trading/combat, however future addtions include the ability to play 'online', more ships, features (ability to fly around the planet surface for example, co-operation between players, fleet management and control, planetary system control.
Work in progress, currently will render all objects, and basic trading is being worked in at the moment.
The new home for this project is located here.

| ||KISS Renderer||The KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid) renderer is a basic Path 1 rendering library built on top of SPS2 and intmdloader. It supports backface culling, trivial clipping and a simple parallel/ambient lighting model. A set of functions are supplied for uploading VU1 microcode, geometry and texture data. The library could be used as the basis for a game engine, or as sample code when developing your own renderer.||None|

| ||Old School Games with SPS2.||I will be rewriting some old games like Pong, Pacman, Breakout and Space Invaders for example.
The purpose is to create a few more examples of using the SPS2 library.
The code needs to be well commented so beginners can understand it.
This is more a tutorial than a rewrite of games, some files might even just be examples in stead of games.
All code, graphics and sound needs to be created from scratch so the games will not be identical to their originals.
The examples does require sps2 0.4.0 or later.
Please E-mail me with questions or suggestions.
Thanks to Steven "Sauce" Osman for writing the SPS2.
Thanks to Henry S Fortuna for the excellent Tutorial.
| ||Playstation 2 Linux System Documentation||The P2LSD Project provides documentation for setting up, using and programming for the Playstation 2 Linux system. Items included in the project are FAQs, HOW-TOs and Handbooks about very specific PS2 Linux topics such as "How to use the IPU" and "The Memory Card FAQ".||None|
| ||Project Landscape||Project Landscape is a project to develop a 3D commercial standard videogame for the Playstation 2 Linux format.
This project is NOT open-source and is only developed by authorised contributors.
The only reason this project is not open for development by public contributors is to keep project management simple.
Project Landscape will not use any non-PS2L specific 3D APIs such as OpenGL. This project is for PS2L and as such should run independently of a window manager and X-Windows.
The Project Landscape page also hosts several other projects including Bang for Quake2 and PS2LQuake.||None|
| ||PS2 Game Engine||ps2engine comes from our school project. Our team, Delusional Studios,
are taking the Electronic Game Design course at NBCC Miramichi. For our
final product for next year, we are doing a ps2 game called Demonic
Psychosis. In order to be able to make the game in time next year, I am
starting the coding for the game engine now.
The game engine so far supports a DMA memory manager, a DMA packet
engine that supports automatic packet stitching with 32, 64 and 128 bit
support, a DMA packet scheduler that allows you to flag packets to be
sent or not and build a call list and send the call list for each DMA
channel independent of each other. The game engine will eventually
support quake 3 level support for interiors, quad trees for the outside
areas, key-frame and skeletal animation with quake 2 models, light-wave
models and custom file formats for optimized models. The custom model
support allows user's to enter openGL like commands to enter vertexes,
normals, colors. The matrix manager also is openGL like and contains all
off the commands from openGL including scaling, translation, rotation
and also a view matrix, projection matrix, camera matrix and model
matrix. Plus two other matrixes used for lighting. There will be many
more additions to the game engine as time goes by.||None|
| ||PS2 Neural Network Simulator||PS2Neural is low-level framework to support running neural networks, optimized for the PS2's hardware (Hebbian-like and error-corrector/backprop). Some ps2neural developers are also interested in developing visualization plugins using the GS.||None|
| ||Pulsar||A 3d space ship shoot-em-up. Will run under native mode (not linux) using the psal library. The psal library is being developed along side Pulsar.||None|
| ||Sauce's Visual VU Debugger||Sauce's Visual VU Debugger (svvudb for short) is a graphical debugger for the vector units. It has an interface that you view on your PC while you execute code on the PS2. This is an X-Windows interface for the PS2, for a PC running linux, as well as a native Windows interface for a PC running Windows. If you're developing VU code that's not targetted towards graphics, you could also run X on your PS2 and use this to debug the code.
The debugger supports both VU0 and VU1.
Some of the debugger's features:
- It allows you to debug UNMODIFIED applications as they run.
- It allows you to, from the command prompt, load up code and data and debug it.
- It allows you to browse all the VU registers and modify most of them when the program is suspended.
- It allows you to view and modify the contents of the VU memory.
- It allows you to single-step through the code or set specific breakpoints.
- With very simple changes to your code, the debugger can be triggered at the developer's will. This is useful when debugging a specific bit of code that may not necessarily be loaded when the debugger is started up.
- When the debugger is not running, applications run at full speed. With the debugger running, applications run at full speed except when suspended by breakpoints.
Future features for this project are top secret.
