Finally, after all this time, IberDC is proud to present you what most of you already knew. The revival of Planet Ring as a Dreamcast online game, what we call “The EarthCall Project” .

Re: dreamcast armc cpu uses?

What I mean is, it "seems" to use the sound memory, and perhaps it should be worth looking it they use the arm on all these.

Re: dreamcast armc cpu uses?

What about of the official SDK documentation? That could have something related... Did the official libraries made any use of it anyway? EDIT: It seems it did... GD-DA In this method, the AICA CPU decodes PCM from the GD-ROM to produce sound. PCM Stream In this method, Ring Buffer is secured in the ...

Re: Was the dreamcast pushed to its limits

Still if the dreamcast had been continued I think SEGA could have squeezed its potential a lot more in further sdk. Just look at some of the latest ps2 games and compare them to the ps2 games on the dreamcast era. Heck even some dc ports were better than the ps2 counterpart ( texture wise, controls,...

Re: Was the dreamcast pushed to its limits

Shenmue didn't froze for me even when the dc was cool.

Shenmue doesn't have mipmaps?

Re: Can a DVD player read GD's?

AFAIK they can't too, because of the way the data is sorted, dvds can't read it either.

But there's always a way to trick the players ( trap cds and such ) to be able to read the data...

Re: OpenGL - New Build in the works

It is indeed impressive, I guess your GL lib is being put to good use right now in some games isn't it :) Actually I'd like to know the difference of perfmrance you could get with benchmarks on KGL and GL. I guess your GL is faster, but how much? Also Shenmue 2 was said to have near 6 million poly c...
