Possibility of a SM64 DC port?

Post by WhiteFatAlbert » Thu Aug 20, 2020 10:42 pm

Hey all, how are you?

I'm curious. Would it be possible for a Dreamcast port of Super Mario 64 using the source code for the PC port? And should it be possible by using Windows CE that's built into the console?

Would love to hear some feedback from this idea of mine, thanks!

Some people asked the same thing over here https://www.dreamcast-talk.com/forum/vi ... =5&t=13223

tl;dr Its probably possible, but the code needs major modifications. (Also Windows CE isn't an OS like normal Windows, theres no point making homebrew with WinCE)
