I'll still bitch about this until it fully supports .gif files. Quality releases over quantity please.

I would like to announce that my next release will include a Deluxe version for $5.99. It will include a slip-on case and a laynard reading "I talked with BoneyCork".

I donated and got access to v0.012beta RC7. It's much better with MP3 playback at 34% playback speed because of an optimized Java rendering core and trilinear texture filtering on animated ID3 tags. The public alpha RC3.01 only has bilinear. Also has partial support for GIF images but it's still very buggy, which can cause a crash and erase all content on your VMU. Because of a buffer overflow in the latest version available to donators, it can load arbitrary code which can launch a C64 emulator which runs a program for the C64 which takes all the saves on your VMU and makes it so you only got half as far in every game. Because of these issues which affect the VMU I recommend not using a VMU or using a dedicated VMU.

Thanks for the bug report bizzle. I have hotfixed this issue by replacing the C64 emulator with another copy of my PS3 emulator, creating a never-ending circle of crashing and booting.

I believe you have that backwards. Your description sounds like you have made an emulator that allows the Dreamcast to play ps3 games.

More accurately;
"I have just released the source codes for my new SEGA DREAMCAST emulator for the PS3."

I have not heard of this project before.
I assume this is a port of nullDC or lxdream?

And btw the name is terrible...confusing to pronounce.
How about "DREAMSTATION 3" instead?

That is correct. Obviously playing PS3 games is a long way off, but I currently have several features emulated.

Oh snap my bad.

I was way off base, there were no links for the project posted in the thread, so I had no idea what this was.

Interesting work, man!

But, to say, emulating PS3 games is a long way off is a bit of an understatement.

I was able to get Netflix streaming running, but the framerate tops out at about 1 frame every five minutes. Should I call Netflix and complain?

Actually you'd be suprised. With the scene's work on overclocking the Dreamcast, and a series of basic PSN games allowing us to work on basic compatability without being hampered by huge graphics requirements - I think I'll be able to get something up and running by the end of September. Obviously nothing in HD.

Where can I find more info on this project?

And, can I access the source code without donations?

I've been having issues with the Dreamcast controller not having Six-Axis support. Are you going to implement this at some point Boney?

Also, I'd like .flv support for my vast collection of illegally obtained videos from PornHub.

I had a quick go of the emu, my biggest concern is the heat problem, the console has been turned off for several hours now but it's still too hot to touch, there's also a burn mark on the table where the machine was sitting, at the very least you should have mentioned this in the readme file.

I'm not accepting donations. This project is currently restricted to veteran members of this site and developers. Apologies for the lack of open-ness (is that a word?), but after this business with the PS3 Jailbreak I'd rather keep things low-key for now. If you're interested in contributing to the project, obviously you will get access. If you're capable of designing menus or testing PS3 games please let me know.

SIXAXIS is a hardware issue. Perhaps you could create something by welding the fishing controller to a standard DC pad?

I will not be adding .flv support as it conflicts with my vision of open web standards and drains the VMU battery life. Sorry.

It amazes me that there is any scene at all when people like you fart out such negative vibes about everything. I've busted my ass making this and all you can do is come in to moan. There are people in the world who would give everything they own to find a machine that can play games and cook eggs at the same time. You've got one, and you're not fucking happy. I thought maybe playing Uncharted on your Dreamcast in the dead of winter all cozied up next to your piping hot console would be nice. Sorry for being so wrong.

Could you ever get around to adding PSN support? I DREAM to CAST a Marvel vs. Capcom 2 match online through the Dreamcast's 56k modem.

I can donate stickers that say "PS3 on Dreamcats plz)", if that helps out at all.

I recently got this in my PM inbox
not just souLLy now wrote: Hi BoneyCock-in-my-mouth Gaylord,

I can't help but notice you bitching about me in your PS3 emulalor thread. This is amusing, considering your existance is so pitiful, it would be a disgrace to the English language and humanity to consider it an existance at all. A better word for you is Superfag, because your dick is covered in your father's shit as you ram him hard every night. Another word for you is waste - you're a waste of organs other people need to live, a waste of food other people want to eat, and a wast of time other people want to spend elsewhere. When people complain that Earth is overcrowded - they're complaining about you. You fucking fuck.

As for your "emulator" (I think it's quite hard to call it that considering it just does a few things the DC can do already, but in a shittier way) - NOBODY GIVES A SHIT. You can't code. You can't develop. I know this because you FUCKING FAIL at everything you do (apart from failing of course, you're the best person on the planet for that skill!). It wouldn't matter if you could anyway. Unless you can make something that let's us pretend we're in a world without you - nobody is going to enjoy it. We could just kill you, but you've already stained our memories and global history with your presence. It's amazing how much better things would be if you never happened.

Then you go and blame me for the failure of the Dreamcast scene. Let's have a look at some comments:

"When I realised people like BoneyCork were enjoying my work, I lost the will to continue updating DreamSNES"
"The main issue with Bleem! was the legality of letting BoneyCork use it"
"I reached a point where leaving DCEmu and setting up a UK version without BoneyCork posting was the only option"
"I made this site, of course I care about it. But then BoneyCork came along and I said fuck it"
"I'll make Shenmue 3 once I finish on my book of reasons BoneyCork sucks"

You are an ass fail cunt BoneyCork. Fuck you you gay nigger gay luriden.
In light of this negativity I have ceased work on my emulator. Sorry.
