Re: 9/9/99 Ten Years After (by Peter Moore)

Sorry to burst YOUR bubble, but console online gaming doesn't come close to PC online gaming. You haven't burst my bubble at all, and please note that I said 'probably' in my reply that you have quoted. Please also note that I'm only judging by friends and family coming around to play online alongs...

Re: 9/9/99 Ten Years After (by Peter Moore)

Actually, PCs proved online gaming was possible, not the DC. Sorry to burst your bubble but the quotes above from Peter Moore about the Dreamcast are in reference to a game CONSOLE and NOT a PC, everyone knows PC's were first for online gaming but the DC opened the door for 'out of the box' online ...

Relatively few SNES games use accelerator chips, and there are maybe a dozen well-regarded games that use them.
I think it's more than you're thinking. :grin:

Re: 9/9/99 Ten Years After (by Peter Moore)

Actually, PCs proved online gaming was possible, not the DC. People had been playing online via PC for years before the DC even came out. The game that probably proved online gaming could be successful was Doom. It wasn't the first, or the best, but like the genre itself (3D), it proved it could be ...

Re: Maximum Resolution on Dreamcast

If someone can point me to any relevant info on the timing, I can play around with it. I've got a TIMM hooked to my DC via VGA box, and my DCDoom already supports 800x608... if it were available. I commented it out on the current code since what happens right now when you try to init 800x608 is it i...

Re: Happy 10th Birthday Dreamcast

I'm glad I finally got a Dreamcast. Back when they came out, I was more into Playstation. I had been burned by SEGA, so I was waiting for the PS2 instead of going with the DC... which is too bad since I would have been happier with the DC.

Re: I was Wondering when there will be a new Build Release

The DC just doesn't have enough power to run a full speed SNES emulator, even one without the special chips support. Get a hold of one of the very expensive programmable SNES carts, and you can play the roms on a real system. So with enough time it would have been able to emulate the ps1 but its no...

Re: Doom for Dreamcast v1.1.6

Nice, i'll be trying out this one. Jump pack support sounds nice. Networking? You think you can get anything working with it? I really need to setup a DC-to-PC connection to test networking on the DC. Without that, all I can do is hope the code works... that's no way to work on code. :| I've been k...

In case someone else runs into something similar, the problem was in the controller/keyboard/mouse code. if (!cont) cont = maple_enum_type(0, MAPLE_FUNC_CONTROLLER); if (!kbd) { kbd = maple_enum_type(0, MAPLE_FUNC_KEYBOARD); if (kbd) kbd_set_queue(0); // turn off keyboard queue } if (!mky) mky = map...

Doom for Dreamcast v1.1.6

Doom for Dreamcast v1.1.6. This has all the goodies - mouse, keyboard, and joypad controls, force-feedback (Jump Pack), stats on the VMU LCD, load/save options and games from/to VMU, allows up to four DEH and patch WAD files (Doom patches, not Boom), NTSC, PAL, and VGA support, music, and stereo sou...

Re: Doom for Dreamcast v1.1.5

This one is fine... as long as you make sure the Jump Pack is disabled in the options. The "wait for next version" comment was about force-feedback, not the game in general. :)

Doom for Dreamcast v1.1.5

New version 1.1.5... it's been awhile. My old computer I used to develop on developed a problem. I've finally got another system setup to develop on. This version fixes problems with the mouse and keyboard. It also has preliminary support for force-feedback. It's still a work in progress, so I don't...

Re: TV-out?

If you could tell us the model of the computer, that would help. Just knowing the chipset isn't enough since that doesn't tell us what outputs the motherboard provides.

Yes. It shows the Ammo, Health, and Armor so that you can play the game without the HUD.

Help with purupuru

I've been trying to add rumble support to my conversion of Doom and just can't get it to work. I can get it to rumble, but nearly every time I do, the next read of the controller returns bad data. Once you quit trying to do force feedback, the controller works fine again. The code I'm using for the ...

Doom for Dreamcast v1.1.4

Here's my own port of Doom for the Dreamcast. This version is based on Doom for the PSP (also made by yours truly) which was in turn based on ADoomPPC for the Amiga which I worked on long ago. I mainly did this as a learning exercise - I just got my DC less than a month ago and decided to try out th...
