Please stop pulling assumptions out of your ass. Or, if you must, keep them out of my topic, please.
I did own one once, but it died on me. A small pop was heard from the machine while I was playing this rabdom Peter Pan game. Never worked since. >_>
Therein lies the problem.
Protip: Picodrive runs the game perfectly fine on PSP, as Tweaker, myself, and quite a few others have tested out. Also, the guy complaining about the DS not being able to play it is because the DS doesn't have a Sega CD emulator that I know of. Picodrive is on DS, but isn't very good. JenesisDS is the best one for the system and that one still has problems.
Just wanted to contribute that.
I wasn't really trying to cause trouble. JenesisDS does plays about 90% of all Genesis games (including previous versions of Megamix) just fine with full speed and nearly perfect sound. It getting better too. I'm not trying to cause a fight, but it is a very good emulator. However, I can play this on PC just fine. It's not a problem.
And no Tweaker, I'm not trying to whine. Porting this to Sega CD makes it better at getting it on real hardware. That's the coolest thing you can do for a home-made game!
And I do know that JenesisDS has no CD emulation. That would likely blow the DS up!
Team Megamix, even through this hack never will be completed, the soundtrack is completed. In my heart.
Goddamn, this is the one of the best videogame-soundtracks I've ever heard, and I think it deserves more love then it currently seems to have. MM Act 2, DF Act 1 and CO Act 4 is the highlights in my opinion, and the whole package is as good as Smash Bros. Brawls, maybe even better.
Yeah, I love DF Act 1 too, it's a conversion from Moon / Mars ~ Sukarabe Fight BGM 3 from The Hybrid Front, a game where Naofumi wrote the music. I think I prefer the Megamix conversion over the original actually. Better drums.
It's a shame to hear this project has been discontinued.
Mad props to Team Megamix nonetheless; this truely was a brilliant project.
Will give it a whirl on my Mega CD later in order to experience the game as it should be played
Shit, I ALONE have like 5 or 6 MegaCD units.
I can throw in one myself.
Give me one of them, PMSL
By the way, is megamix supposd to freeze after DFZ act 3 has been complete?
Random useless factoids: the release of "Megamix CD" made me get my lazy ass up and have my MCD2 fixed for good. Gotta cost me something, though, as I can't solder at all (small game shop in the area, once talked to the owner about the MD extensions, said he'd fix my MCD if I'd bring it over and tell him what to do). Which in turn made me consider learning how to solder myself, because I'm certainly not going to shell out another 10€ per unit or something to have 50/60Hz and language switches installed into my MDs.
And to post something on-topic: As many said before, it's sad to see Megamix being cancelled, but it's the decision of its team and I respect that. And despite bugs and whatnot, this last release is one damn great hack and I'm looking forward to being able to play it on real hardware soon! :D
Heh, when ever I get my lappy back I'll be able to burn it and put it on my Xbox, I might want to try finding a SegaCD as well so I can play it on that as well. :P
My unkle might give me one, but it's hard to get him arsed to dig for it.
Hi guys, just so you know, when I played this hack a few months ago as Shadow... I gained some Shadow liking points. That's how great this hack is. Now it's even better and even though you say it'll never be completed, I love it the way it is.
This one will go down in history. Good job all of you ^_^
I don't have a SegaCD, but this gives me more of a reason to buy a USB controller for my laptop. I just have to get used to controlling the directional with my left hand again.
For those who use macs. I could run Kega Fusion through Parallels, but it's slow as hell.
I would try and find the leaked version, but Tweaker has clearly stated that it's off limits now (which is fine; I'm not complaining about it).
Kega Fusion runs full speed for me under VMWare Fusion. Perhaps download the free trial of that and see if it works better for you than Parallels?
A native Sega CD emulator is on it's way, just not soon...
Have you tried Kega Fusion under WINE? I've been using that for the past couple months and other than a few quirks (I've got a text file with a list of what they are) it works just about perfect for Sega CD and 32X games, including Megamix.
If anyone wants to try Kega Fusion under WINE, PM me so I can give you the list of quirks that you need to know about before running.
