Nintendo and Midway are pure evil: They make Sony look like it has a soul.

Yes, Your Dreamcast is able to do that.

To wrap it up.

Sorry, I just don't like sbiffy. I never have and I never will: It always struck me as reinventing the wheel. At least, I am told, It opened up dc homebrew to many more people: On the whole, a good thing. But I do not like it. And my not liking it does not impune the esteemed persons, nor their cont...

Re: Smash Pack programmer wanted Echelon to release ROM Loader

Why has no one pirated this stuff? Besides the obsidian-lemec loader, Why has absolutely no one played with this stuff? Strictly for educational purposes. Ginsu=Sega's official menu system for swapping programs (take that SBIffy shit) Manifest is the actual program. I cannot make heads or tails of w...

Re: Smash Pack programmer wanted Echelon to release ROM Loader

So, strictly for educational purposes, Has anyone figured out how it works? Well, Echelon and Obsidian did. Echelon and Obsidian: What weird names. I would feel real, real stupid if there were to be hidden in the Smash Pack the basic rudiments of Segacd or Saturn emulation. I mean the "vol. 1" and "...

Why'd DSNES stop?

Re: Smash Pack programmer wanted Echelon to release ROM Loader

I hate to post, myself, twice in a row; But to clarify what I had tried to say, Echelon = Bottom Rung Echelon = The Next Step Echelon = Step Up Welcome to the Next Generation. Btw, Anyone notice, while rewatching the Sega Saturn commercials, The very first one demonstrated the swap trick? If Sega wo...

Re: Smash Pack programmer wanted Echelon to release ROM Loader

Echelon means a ladder, literally. Echelon is a funny, French word: To me this is a snotty way for Sega to say to the, "Here you go pip-squeeks, We can afford to do this and we quit. It is just such a shame ya'll will never really learn to do this. And yeah, it probably only took us five minutes of ...

Taboo Faq

I was just over at game fags, browsing the only Taboo Faq there. At the very beggining was this long spiel about copyrights and a bunch of BS. For those who do not know, Taboo is not a game, It is a Celtic Cross Tarot Card Reading on the NES. It is on the whole limited and inacurate, but to some deg...

I Have an Idea!

And I am probablly totally wrong. In the nester 7.1 readme, it is noted MMC5 save states could take up to 240 blocks. A Standard VMU ought to only have 200 blocks. NesterDC SE emulates most of the MMC5 Koei games flawlessly, but the player should be prepared for one long-sitting game because the SRA...

Most Koei Games Work

It is amazing. Scherzo, Thank you. You made most of the illusive (and often expensive) Koei games work with an emulator. Amazing. Everyone shoud sit down and play the Koei games: (Fully Working) Gengis Khan, Nobunaga's Ambition and Romance of the 3 Kingdoms. (Working but not saving) Bandit Kings of ...

Bleem! Copyrights

To avoid conflict, let me be blunt and please do not mix my words: 1.) Who owns the copyright to Bleem!? Rand? Sony? A corporation of Bleem!? Others? 2.) After the death of that juristic person (the owner) how long will the materials be copyrighted, under current (American) Law, and in who? 3.) Is t...

Schezro, First and most importantly, thanks. You know we all appreciate this. Second, and just as important, I cannot even begin to tell you how important proper and efficient ex-graphic emulation is to me. I know this has been and is an ellusive task, to everyone who tries. Nonetheless, I am lookin...

Out of Curiousity: Any efforts been put towards implementings ex graphics? Getting those Mapper 5 games working would be great. Hint, hint.

check out a few koei games. most of the mapper 5 games run, but the graphics are not usually emulated properly (bandit kings of ancient china is a good example, the game plays but i think it is just using the regular nes stuff and the graphics won't work right.). only time and takayama fumihiko will...
