Hey guys, I was looking at this game called "Girl Talk" by Kung Fu Factory and after watching the review and noticing that the game doesn't look as high end as most games today, and it looks like soul calibur/ doa2 graphic wise I decided to look for the developers and I didn't find an email address so I did the next best thing looked up their Facebook, I found their fan page and I just put my request to have them port it to the DC. I didn't expect to hear from them but 6 minutes later I got a response but they replied in a negative ALMOST saying it was a super idea an that they even have a dreamcast in the office but they don't have the dev kit anymore I don't know if they were referring to there dev kit or the dreamcast but I let them know that we (the dreamcast scene) have created alternative ways to develop for the dreamcast.

Give them more encouragement by going to their Facebook and liking a post by me Koku Jin or telling them they should port to dc. Just the fact they replied so fast shows that they listen, we did convince others to port content to the DC. We did it with bennuGD and CubicVR let's try one more time this time from someone that's getting more attention.

Here's a link to the GDC review



the game actually looks great. I hope it does come to the DC.

here's my Facebook post on their page.

Even if they were motivated enough to port this, how could they short of using the official development libraries?

There's no way this could be accomplished with any free, open source, homebrew dev environment. The question is whether they would be willing to forgo the legalities...

I'd love to know why you think that if it can be accomplished that it could only be accomplished with the official tools. What major advantage do you feel that the official tools would give that you can't get with KOS and other such things. If you're going to point to the lack of much 3D homebrew for the Dreamcast, realize that 3D is a whole lot more work to deal with than 2D. When you're doing something for fun, not getting paid, and generally aren't a 3D artist, you don't do 3D.

I'd be more apt to think that its entirely impossible on the Dreamcast, period (without significantly downgrading the graphics). Mind you, I'd love to be proven wrong on the graphics point. I really would. I just don't foresee it happening at all. Sorry to say, but the Dreamcast doesn't have nearly the horsepower that some people seem to think that it does...

Nah. If I chose to buy this game I think the lower-priced PSN option with HD graphics and the convenience of working on a current console I regularly play would be a better choice than a Dreamcast port. Sorry.

Also, XBLA and PSN games can't be pirated as easily. AFAIK, XBLA games have never been warezed before, and I've never heard of anyone being able to warez PSN games either.

This is never going to happen. Theirs no point in wasting money to port something (that would be a bitch to port first of all) that only a few people would even buy. Cork knows whats up. Hey guis, wanna play this game on the dreamcast? OR do you wanna play it on a ps3 with hd, wide screen, better graphics, no disc, online play, and with a lot wider range of controller options?

I've seen warez for both XBLA and PSN.
