Actually, I seem to remember the TQ source being released. Don't ask me where or how, though.

Check the CD-R compatibility page - the model number and manufacture date is what matters, not the packaging. There are Sports Pack DC's that do and Sports Pack DC's that do not work with the CD-R booting procedure.

One thing to bear in mind is that unlike Quake , whose modifications ran using a non-platform specific bytecode file (progs.dat), Quake II 's modifications were platform specific (i.e., .DLL's for Windows, .SO files for Linux, etc.) so even if a port of Quake II does get pulled off you won't be able...

The one thing I've learned in my job is that anything is possible, given enough power and programming. Ergo, "emulating a PlayStation game" is possible on the Dreamcast - we witnessed this with the three Bleem entries. However, "emulating a PlayStation" is still questionable. It's true that Bleem ch...

It would be easier to take the source code of your favorite DOS program and port it instead (witness: DOOM, Wolfenstein, etc.) DOS was more a matter of a command line and a designation of drive letters. Windows is more like an all-encompassing system. With DOS you had to write to the hardware (the s...

Well if you think about it, the emu usually runs full speed with sound off and doesn't when you have sound off. 0.95 has an assembly graphics core so it makes sense that the sound core isn't assembly. Perhaps when the sound core is assembly then 100% speed will be attained.

I think it's because of the new compressed save format. Perhaps someone will figure out a new way to convert old saves.

I seem to recall hearing that, as part of their new platform agnostic staregy, Sega was planning on releasing certian classic old Saturn games on the PlayStation, and "Panzer Dragoon" was specifically mentioned. I've heard nothing of it since then and given that the PSX is pretty much a dead system ...
