How many years?

Post by Hawke » Tue Dec 11, 2012 11:55 pm

I'm going by the seat of my pants, but I'd bet it was about 10 or so years ago since I first got a Dreamcast and joined the group of emulation which was bought on by simply sonic advenure (admit it, it was the selling point of the console!) that basically told me I needed to have that new Sega console! It was the mother-f'kin dreamcast! This thing was revoultionary!
The whole DC emultaion scene was triggerd by nothing more than a few google searches after reading somewhere (can't remember where exactly) that my beloved pc emulators (never had an snes) could become a reality on my very own tv!
Raptor, who at the time seemed like a welcome unit in the DC emulation scene, was porting shit left and right! You got a new emu? Lemme code the front end (idk how programming works) and make it work on DC! New game? I can port that too!
Then something happened and he went ape-shit and tried to down the site? Idk, I just tl;dr'd through most of it.

oh man. then there was whats-his-name and beats of rage! HELLS YEA that was amazing. Oh! the Tryne? (idk) went all quake with his beat em up/magic kick ass port/coding thing! oh! oh! then - oh man - Blue crab and his LJSDCDEVRPG or whatever it was, he was all OMG GET SHIT DOOOONE son! and I had to jump on board! But we all kinda had our heads bigger than an outcome of sorts. Kinda like when you order too much and you get full half way though.

Then darc was all "You suck!" and I got all "waahhh.. no one loves me" and then I realized I wasn't 8 and it was all cool.

Then I met Ace for a beer, and it was awesome and I realized the internet wasn't scary.

Anyhow, you've all set a great example and helped me do shit on tech and internets and stuff, so I'll always be thankfull for the dcemu scene with 007cheater and dem guys for introducing me to, well, the internet :)

tl;dr, im drunk and I rambled about my start in dcemu and internets.

Then siggler had is MMX redux or what have you, and BC (BlueCrab, obviously) had his YABSUE or something Saturn emu? Yet-Another-Basic-Saturn-Emu? idk, idr. Either way, there's more.

BC, in his awesome pragmatic (idk if I'm using that word right) ways decided to be all "Hey! You know what's NOT been done yet in the DCEMU scene? Guess! Comon! One guess... No? Okay!" then he went all awesome and came out with the first recoded digital Dreamcast Micophone upload ever!

I bet everyone was completely "Uh, so? Seaman used it. No one cares." Execpt you forget, seaman SUCKED and bluecrab wasn't out to get a quick buck. He was in it for SCIENCE!

TL;DR v2.0.
Still drunk. Still rambling about years past.

How you got that scramble of letters pretty much right (minus a space before RPG) while drunk is what I'm wondering right about now.

I guess I've worked with you long enough to memorize all your odd acronyms. I'm still wondering if I used the word pragmatic correctly myself - lol

Hi guys, I've been following this thread closely and have some questions:

- What is a Dreamcast?
- What is an emulation?

Also, BC obviously means BoneyCork.

You need to have some sort of surgery when excessive anal sex makes your asshole that loose.

Trust me, your mom made me pay for hers.
