the base i did indeed code myself obviously (init, IRQ, HDMA, whatever else is in there)
the video streaming routine is just LZ2 decompression on-the-fly (decompression may
take up to 4 frames. on frame 0 i start it, frame 2 i upload the first half [i assume it's been decompressed already], and frame 3 i upload the second half). the decompression routine is the optimized one included in LM (aka this
), so i cannot take credit for it.
processing the individual frames through a myriad of python scripts (my own) and converters was pretty annoying though
the audio streaming routine, however, i had to code myself. definitely the hardest part since i have zero experience with the SPC. i did use a base SPC code by wiiq, but it was very barebones and obviously did not handle streaming (and i also had to nab a code to upload said SPC code to ARAM. for that i think i just copied SMW's)
funny story: the only reason i finished this was because i needed audio streaming for my homebrew (i actually used said homebrew as a base; i mightve left remnants of it in the source). so i am definitely reusing that. the video streaming isnt very practical so i probably wont reuse it
and thanks for the feedback everyone
