Post by Maturion » Tue Apr 08, 2008 11:15 am

I just found "boob!play" on DCEmu UK. I can't download it from there so I can't ty it out myself. What is boob!play? is it a fake? I searched on boob.co.uk for it but I didn't find anything about it, not even a download.

What's boob!play?

You can download boob!play here: http://www.boob.co.uk/files/boobplay.zip

It's an early, early version of a media player, based on WinCE, to which GypPlay is a sequel.

See these two boob! news archives for more:
http://www.boob.co.uk/arc6-2000.html
http://www.boob.co.uk/arc7-2000.html

(read from the bottom of those pages up, as the news is in that order)

I played around with it at one time. Quality was pretty decent if I remember, but it lacked controls.

Yeah, playback quality is pretty similar to Gypplay. :)

You need to copy those files from a dump of a WinCE-based Midway game. I'm not sure which games work and which don't.

Is that true ? I am asking because I have my doubts in regards to the connection between a random Midway game and WinCE. All the WinCE based homebrew I've seen, including Titanium's QuakeDC (id) and Defense Commander (MS) ports, use that "midway_1.exe".



@ Basil: Welcome to DCEmulation :)

You can find a complete distribution of Boob!Play here: http://dcevolution.net/downloads/hosted/Age.rar

Just burn / mount the .cdi file and take whatever files you need.

Hrm, so we're allowed to post files ripped from commercial games now? I'll get right on uploading my whole collection!

Boob!Play = Game Hack:

The player is not a hack of the midway game. The reason you need the midway disc is that it was the first dc game running under winCE and the bootdisk, meaning the first oppertunity to do any winCE coding and testing. In fact you can delete all files except the 1st_read.bin, midway_1.exe (our player), \wince folder and likely ip.bin as well (not sure, but likely)
