dreamsnes, eh? If you've still got your dc you should check some of the emulators out. NESter is near perfect nes emulation, NEOGEO4ALL has surprisingly good NEOGEO (duh!) emulation.. Frodo can run at a reasonable rate and the speccy, coleco, atari 8 bit, vcs, megadrive and master system emus are al...

DCaSTaway with games

Hi, I have a dreamcast. I also have an ST. The ST is packed away in the attic for the time being and the dreamcast is not. So to alleviate my ST loss woes, Some kind person wrote an ST emulator, just for me*. How nice! Anyway, here's my compilation (an older version of DCaSTaway (no sampled sound) w...

There is a chap over on the yakyak forums (interestingly enough the same guy who did Starball on the ST) that is (or may no longer be) working on a Jag emulator. It currently runs T2K (and at reasonable frame-rate even on my 1.7Ghz Athlon!) and VLM only. Here's the link : http://www.yakyak.org/viewt...

It seems that a chap/ess by the name of zeusgb has put quite a few ST demos on (and thanks to him/her for that!).. Found that whilst facebooking for 'Atari ST', which shows facebook comes in useful sometimes..

Wings of death for me. It's be ages since I played it so it'd be interesting to see how I do now as opposed to back then (which wasn't very good. At all). Esp using a keyboard (so, should need arise, I can grab a screen shot and not because my ste's up in the attic).

A chap with 16 bit issues.. Which brings up the question; If there were one, would he love the Sinclair QL version of dizzy?


Interesting that he finds dizzy poo after so many plays (and then awards it 5 out of 10). I realised that with the first demo I played on the old speccy.

Indeed, shadow of the beast didn't play like enchanted lands (which, er, did have slanted floors). I think even most amiga owners will admit that sotb as a game wasn't very good. It just looked nice.

But what do I know?

My memory is a little hazy, but I thought you could play it on an STe if you pressed fire as soon as it loaded up. The 'bum copy' part came up after the first screen. I could be wrong, though.

Yeah sorry megaupload seems awkward Leonard but as PaulB says, it's pretty straight forward and (apart from a casino ad) it's a good way to upload/download files.. I discovered it from a massive (and on going) dreamcast download session! It does the job :D

Jeff Minter's Llamatron is definitely worth a bash and I also loved Gridrunner. St Dragon wasn't a bad conversion. Goldrunner is a nice smooth vertical blaster.
