  1. Decent Dreamcast emulator wanted

    11 April 2010 - 01:55 PM

    Basically, my lovely, precious, shiny, smooth white Dreamcast has been slowly deteriorating over the last few years, and has finally gone bang. It's not under warranty any more, and I don't want to have to hunt for yet another one.

    So I've been looking at Dreamcast emulators, and have found a few with varying results:

    NullDC: I've heard this is the best one, but I just can't get it to work. At all. I have working Dreamcast BIOSes, but they're apparently "too large". Some other files are not found, and apparently don't exist anywhere.

    Makaron: I can't get this one to work either. It causes an "Open error" when trying to open the BIOS. Since the filename and path are correct, it leads me to assume that there's something wrong with the BIOS. However, the same file works fine in

    Demul: I can get this one working just fine. The problem is, it's slow. Painfully slow. And it has a few problems when it comes to deciding which polygons should be in front of which. I've tried following various sites on the internet, but all it seems to do is make it look worse without affecting the speed at all.

    I understand that Shenmue and Sonic Adventure are fairly hard to emulate accurately, but these are practically a must.

    Anyway, onto my system:
    Operating system: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
    Processor: Intel Celeron CPU 900 @ 2.2GHz
    RAM: 2GB

    If there's any more information you need, I'll happily provide. I'm basically just looking for either ways to make the above emulators work, or another emulator. I may have to up/downgrade my computer, or I may have to wait until the emulation quality steps up, in which case I'll probably buy another Dreamcast.

    I just want my Chu Chu Rocket.

    EDIT: Shit, I thought this was General Gaming. Please move if it's more appropriate there.
  2. Anyone know where I can find a TAS?

    Don't get me wrong, I love watching Upthorn & co. glitch the hell out of the Sonic MD games and achieving crazy speeds, but I'd also like to see how fast the games can be completed in a way the designers intended. Anyone know where/if I can find these?

    Also, sorry if this is in the wrong forum.
  3. Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog

    06 September 2008 - 07:28 AM

    The first episode of Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog was first aired this day fifteen years ago. I was wondering, what's your favourite episode?

    I'd have to go with Sno Problem, especially with Scratch and Grounder throwing themselves out of a window to prove their loyalty to Dr. Robotnik.
  4. No Regrets?

    Ever released a hack/code you wish you hadn't?

    Almost a year ago, I posted a YouTube video showing a PAR code for S3 that changes Sonic's palette into one that resembles Ashura (here). The following day, I posted another YouTube video showing some of the other variations I'd developed along the way. One of these was a Red Sonic.

    Before posting the video, a search on both Google and 7metasearch for "00380A:E006" gave no results. Now it seems to be all over the Internet. As most people in this community will know (or can easily find out), this isn't the code for the "actual" Red Sonic. However, lots of websites now claim it is.

    While pleased that the code has been recognised, I'm annoyed that it has been associated with the real Red Sonic code, which makes the game think you're Knuckles for certain objects and bosses.

    If I could remove the code, I probably would. I was just wondering if anyone else had any similar feelings.
