Re: In The Line Of Fire Early Access Beta Released To Public

I'm glad to hear you're doing better in your life. I understand what you mean about using internet spaces to feel validated. I've certainly been guilty of that myself in darker times in years past. I still stand by what I said in my last post: "You are always welcome back here. I won't hold anything...

Every once in a while I'll peak at the moderator team and if someone hasn't logged in for over a year, I typically give 'em the boot. ;)

Re: Dreamcast Classic

I don't see it happening. There's no hardware they could use to accurately emulate the DC that would also be cheap enough.

Re: Elysian Shadows Kickstarter Live NOW!

Countdown to 2019.... Countdown to 2020! At this point Falco, why not release what you have to the community and call it a day? That wouldn't stop you from working on your game in your spare time as a hobby, but at least the backers who wanted your toolkit would get it and could make their own proj...

Re: I call it... KOStana

Damn dude. This is quite impressive. I thought about doing something like this; that is, using retail Dreamcast hardware put into a custom case with dials and switches hacked up to do the same thing as they do on the real dev.kit, but with additional selectable options like multibank BIOS, selectabl...

Re: SHENMUE III CONFIRMED

the Kickstarter backers are now receiving their copies for PS4, and the "exclusive Kickstarter case" is just a piece of cardboard paper that goes around the regular normal cheap version case. What a load of shit lol
One last "look how big of suckers you all were" punch from this debacle.

Re: Unused Racing/Rally Wheel Expansion Port

Could it be the same as those used on 3rd party wheels? I have an InterAct Concept 4 Racing Wheel and it has pedals. They connect through a 6-pin mini DIN though.

Re: SHENMUE III CONFIRMED

I ended up taking the refund. After telling us we could get a refund or choose to wait a year for a Steam key, they announced that that might not even happen. So they basically gave us a barely tolerable option as an apology, waited weeks for the anger to settle down, and then said basically "psyche...

Re: DC SD Card Reader - what can it do

You can back up/dump GD-ROMs with it (use jj1odm SD Ripper, not the ripper included with Dreamshell, it's unreliable) Backup all your VMU saves easily (Dreamshell) Load homebrew apps with Dreamshell. You can load some official games off of it, but for most games the transfer is too slow and it plays...

Re: Shenmue emulated

It was pretty awful in the original Dreamcast game to be honest haha

Keep in mind it wasn't really meant to be the same kind of camera control as in modern games. It was more of a "stop and look at your surroundings" kind of thing.

Re: Are you getting a Genesis Mini?

Once Lik-Sang went under however long ago, nothing came to fill the void. There's some guy in Venezuela who has a large stock of them, and he posts them on eBay individually for high prices (around $100 iirc). No idea where he got them from, perhaps he bought all of them up from some Chinese wareho...

Re: Are you getting a Genesis Mini?

I've had this want to make injection mold tooling for a Dreamcast shell because I know a place where I could take it and have cases molded in a wide variety of colors (inc. skeleton ...

Re: Are you getting a Genesis Mini?

"Collector's syndrome" seems to be a common thing for anyone that goes in deep enough. The fun of collecting topples the fun of playing games. I knew a few old vets from AG who ended up reaching that same place. Compared to most, the direction you took turned out to be a vastly superior way to spen...

Re: Are you getting a Genesis Mini?

Sometime in the earlier part of this decade, I hit a wall with collecting. Idk if you remember when I used to hang out in the IRC a lot 10 years ago and I'd go on about how I lost around 95% of my collection in a fire. After that, I decided to rebuild. By 2012, I had a mountain of consoles and game...

Re: Are you getting a Genesis Mini?

I think these are really good deals for casual gamers, and it's cool that the companies are finally caring enough to put work into making quality throwback consoles, but... I don't have a use for these things as a more serious gamer, and I don't see why serious gamers bother to collect them, so...
