Chu Chu Rocket back Online

Posted by cube_b3 on Jun 09, 2016 at 10:16pm - 1 Comments


The hardcore Dreamcast players will know that it’s still possible to play some Dreamcast games online, thanks to the efforts of the folks over at Dreamcast Live. If you want to figure out how to get your own Dreamcast to go online, check out this video right here. A number of Dreamcast games are playable online through this method, including Phantasy Star Online, Quake III Arena, Starlancer, and 4×4 Evolution.

Dreamcast Live recently announced that ChuChu Rocket! has been brought back online, thanks to the efforts of Jonas Karlsson.

Thanks to the efforts of Jonas Karlsson (the same guy behind the Dreamarena server which allows you to play Toy Racer via dial-up), the server software has been reverse engineered. Jonas is hosting his own server which anyone can connect to by simply setting your DNS server to 46.101.91.123. This is the default DNS server for DreamPi users, so if that’s your connection method of choice, you don’t have to change anything. . When asked for a username and password, enter anything (they aren’t saved in the current implementation of the server). The server software and source code will be released to the public at some point so that it can be hosted by anyone and preserved.

According to Karlsson and Dreamcast Live, the server is still a “proof-of-concept” , so expect bugs while playing online. The server is currently experiencing some issues too, so you might have to wait a bit before they fix it. This is an amazing feat and I commend everyone who helped bring ChuChu Rocket! back online!

Cool Herders Full Playthrough

Posted by cube_b3 on Apr 23, 2016 at 9:39pm - 0 Comments


The legendary Tursi from Harmless Lion and lead developer of Cool Herders discovered that the indie Dreamcast game works flawlessly with a PC Emulator. So he decided to play the whole game from start to finish and offer us, his commentary.

The video contains spoilers, so it is recommended for those who have beaten the game. If you haven't, might want to finish the game first.

Nonetheless, it is nice to find a nice high res video of a Goat classic on the internet.

New Dreamcast Game

Posted by PH3NOM on Mar 25, 2016 at 9:20pm - 30 Comments

Whats up guys!

For those who are not familiar, myself(PH3NOM)(programmer) and Wilson(juguefre)(artist) have been working on a new game for the Dreamcast.

Initially, the engine was using the Quake III BSP for the level format.

However, due to inherent limitations in the Quake .map format, I have pushed the engine forward and created a new MAP format for the Dreamcast using QuadTree partitioning for the collision, with fast render meshes optimized for the Dreamcast hardware.

Everything you see here are assets created by juguefre and is our own copyright :-)

This is no small feat; this model is some ~3.5k tris:

We are still hard at work to create a final product, so please stay tuned!

DreamShell 4.0.0 RC4 released

Posted by |darc| on Feb 06, 2016 at 8:42am - 1 Comments
After a year and a half since the DreamShell 4.0.0 RC3 release, SWAT has released DreamShell 4.0.0 RC4. The source code has also been uploaded to GitHub.

DC-SWAT wrote:
The long-awaited update to DreamShell 4.0. This release should have taken place years ago, but unfortunately was postponed due to lack of time to fix all the issues. At least, I have brought it to working condition. The main issues have been fixed, but unfortunately there are still bugs. This release has been tested very little, so there may be some bugs I have not seen. Please report issues on the forum.

Site Moved to a New Host

Posted by |darc| on Jan 25, 2016 at 4:00am - 3 Comments

Yesterday, as many may have noticed, we had some maintenance downtime last night. Over the weekend I was busy migrating everyone from this site and its various subdomains over to a new host. This should give us faster speeds and allow us greater flexibility with the forums, the database for which being difficult to manage under our previous hosting.

At the moment, anyone with FTP access to parts of the site or any of its subdomains will find that their access does not work. I have a list of those who previously had access, and I'll be reaching out in the coming week to get that working again.

In addition, several of the subdomain sites (most of which have long been abandoned and are still up for historical reasons) have some old, broken code (e.g. using deprecated PHP functions that throw error messages, or have broken links due to being moved around a few times over the years), so I will be doing a review of these subdomains and their content over the coming week or two. Some of the content on these subdomains is still valuable, and some of them have files tucked away in their subdirectories that may be files of value.

The main site should be working fine, however; if you notice any weirdness, please reach out and let us know so that it can be fixed.
