DCEvolution.net releases bwwd's Battletoads DC

Post by Christuserloeser » Sat Sep 09, 2006 4:29 pm

DCEvolution.net proudly presents a ready-to-burn Special Dreamcast Edition of bWWd's fantastic Battletoads!

While the game itself is identical to the initial release, a lot of changes and optimizations have been made to technical structure so now it finally runs from start to end in all game modes - without the RAM saving enabled!

In addition all other reported bugs in the original version have been fixed - Namely all slowdowns and the transparency problems with the cutscenes in the 'Zombie Party' game mode.

The game itself took eight long months to create and it shows: Battletoads DC is based on an enhanced OpenBoR engine and uses many new and rarely used features.

More facts:
- Four playable characters: Rash, Pimple & Zitz plus Sketch Turner from Comix Zone
- Five entirely different game modes: T.Bird Rescue, Revenge & Rematch plus Zombie Party & Comix Zone.
- Loads of unique moves and stages - plus weapons!

>>I hope this will inspire someone to start his own mod or make his mod better. Have fun with it.<< - bWWd

Got to this page for the download. Printable covers will follow soon.

Big thanks to Samurai X for updating the Dreamcast port of OpenBoR.

The link to the download doesn't work. It takes us to a page that expains what HTTP is.

Nice release! Since it uses OpenBOR, does it have support for 4 players?
Also, what is the difference between the different game modes?

It already has NTSC support ;)

No, it doesn't support 4 players, since 4 player support isn't fully implemented in OpenBoR yet. There are still bugs but it's beeing worked on. :)

The different game modes contain different settings, stories, stages, enemies, bosses, etc.

im on dial up and while i dont mind waiting a few hours to download this game.. dcevolution.net doesnt like 56k. everytime i try to download something from there the download quits after a few minutes. most other sites i dont have that problem. could someone put up the battletoads game on another site or is there somewhere else i could get this game?

it kind of makes me mad that a lot of sites are not 56k friendly anymore.. im glad this one still is.

you don't need a account to download from yousendit, but you do have to download it within a set time limit, and i think 2 weeks is too long ;)

sorry it took so long for me to decide to download it but its a very big deal.. once i start downloading i pretty much cant use my computer for 5-7 hours.

dcevolution has a lot of great stuff on it but everytime i try to download from them the download is disconected i think that site has something against 56kers because most other sites i dont have a problem with..

so ... could someone post a link to a site with the download on it.

Hallo,
@impact135
have you tried a download manager (e.G.: http://www.freedownloadmanager.org/ ), so you can resume download after disconnection (if server is able to).

it should work in a dvd/cd burner (it works for me) as long as you use a cd ;)

what software are you using to burn it with?
