SMEG

Post by Nico0020 » Sat Apr 13, 2002 11:20 am

I have beeen thinking about downloading SMEG. I have never played a sega master system much. I have one but it does not work anymore. I was wondering what good games there are that are really worth downloading.

It'll cost you 50 cents to burn and 10 minutes to setup.
So why did you waste 10 minutes thinking about it and 50cents of electricity writing this :o

Why would it be made if it wasn't THE GREATEST THING EVER!!

Ghostbusters is a neat game. Also Dracula.
If you think typing 'make' is hard, forget coding.
If you can't figure out the commands to DC-Tool, forget coding.
If you think coding is as easy as typing printf("Hello World\n"); , shoot yourself.

Smeg....hmmmm probably the best emu on the dc....hmmmmm!
The name 'smeg' comes from 'red dwarf' a sci-fi/comedy tv series...but what does smeg mean?
Smeg is in fact the scum that accumilates between the forskin and bellend of a penis if it is not washed regularly......Ack!!!
Good work heliophobe! Shame about the title! Especially when you say to your mates 'wanna see my smeg?'

Well, properly that's "Smegma". I think of "Smeg", in terms of Red Dwarf, as sort of a general purpose profanity, in the context of "Oh Sh*t" or "F**k that" - it isn't really meant to be taken literally in that sense, although the origins are obvious.

There is also "What the smeg is that?"
I wouldnt say its the best emulator on the DC, maybe because I dont think its emulating the best console, allthough the master sytem is damn good. What I can say though is dont get The Ninja, its hard and boring. Which makes it totally crap. But as pointed out, get Alex Kidd In Miracle World because that is excellent, but the series seemed to suffer after that...

I agree on the alex kidd series.....and the ninja does suck....I know some japanese guy who can complete it in one sitting.......strange!

The Ninja is only boring in the sense that getting killed all the time is boring. It's one of those games that is harder than it has any right to be, but if you're a masochist and really enjoy mastering a nigh-impossible game so you look like a pro, The Ninja is for you.

It's for the hardcore Japanese gamer.


Oh, by the way, favorite system notwithstanding, would you say NesterDC is better than Smeg now? It seems to have better features and does the fullscreen/fullspeed/no frameskipping thing, but I've only read the news updates, I haven't bothered burning it because I only have about four NES roms and it didn't seem worth it.

I would expect it to be better than Smeg, with all the work this guy puts into it.

Yeah, and one button always shoots toward the top of the screen, regardless of which way you are facing. This allows you to strafe and attack while retreating. I found the game extremely hard until I discovered this.


Don't forget Fantasy Zone 2 :wink:

Uh yeah but its not like the teleport was much help ^__^
Heliophobe...Both nester and frnes are pretty damn good.Cant compare it to smeg thats too difficult. I find smeg a simple straight forward emu that does its job and does it very well...Nester & frnes again are great peformers with a few extras here and there (some games with frnes require a tnker with frameskip)... I guess it depends if the nes is your thing!
That new gameboy emu is very surprising I was well impressed with it...
Shame that no-one has yet gave a good go at a PC-ENGINE/TG16 emu that was the greatest (in my own twisted opinion!).darc DC was a promising start..source code is available...Maybe I outta learn to program!

Now that we are rambling about the beloved SMEG here, how do you pronounce it? I always say: esmek. BTW I'm not especially waiting for save support, more for the great new sound. Have you heard that Alex Kid sound example on the official page? Ohh... the memories..

The same way they pronounce it on Red Dwarf, it's like the name "Meg" with an "s" in front of it, rhymes with "beg".
