Net Yaroze

Post by Utini » Wed Sep 20, 2006 2:18 pm

I'd quite like to get into a bit of old PS programming, and Net Yaroze looks like an ideal candidate. Any idea how much these dev kits go for nowadays?

Thankfully PAL Yaroze is probably the most common of the three regions. Having said that, a fully complete kit (unit, cables, memory card, controller, software, manuals etc) will probably still set you back £150-200.

Around the 200 pound mark on Ebay . Sometimes more , sometimes less . Like with all retro stuff , depends on condition , boxed or otherwise , and whether it`s complete .

It's (semi) surprising that Sony don't still sell them - afterall, although the PS is old, it's still current...

No its not. They stopped making them a couple of months ago.

And stopped making the old shaped one, which the yaroze is, about 4 years ago.

The Net Yaroze system was a pretty good low level developement tool for the PSX but there are a lot of alternatives which cost next to nothing.

(Here comes the plug!!)

On my website (on the PSX Games page) theres a PSX CD full of Net Yaroze made games to give you an idea of what the machine was capable of. Theres also numerous other PSX homebrew games that were developed without using the net yaroze system (I recommend PSX Manic Miner!). They're all in CD image format so if you have a chipped PSX or PS2 use CDRWin to burn them off and take a look.

Theres also some links on the LINKS page to some sites that have homebrew developement tools for the PSX but if you type in psx homebrew into google theres lots of sites for help as well as a few decent forums with experienced people to help out.

An alternative developement platform for sony machines is the Linux platform for the PS2 which has an excellent web support community.


EDIT: Scratch that, My website appears to have vanished from the face of the earth (well the face of NTLWorld actually). Need to upload it to new webspace.

They may have ceased manufacture, but I'm willing to bet that there're warehouses full of them back east.
