Reverse-Engineered Star Fox Running on Mega Drive

Friday, March 8th, 2013

SNES game Star Fox has been reverse-engineered to run on a Mega Drive by developer Stef at the forums.

It’s certainly very bare bones at this point, running at an incredibly low framerate with sound missing but it’s still an incredible acheivement. If you’d like to try it yourself you can download the work-in-progress rom here.

See below for some gameplay footage:

Can You Help Save DC Evolution?

Monday, July 23rd, 2012

DC Evolution is a fantastic site for those enthusiastic about homebrew on the Dreamcast. The site hosts freeware disc images of Dreamcast games and applications released into the public domain. It’s a wonderfully comprehensive website and it’s now being threatened with complete closure as their current host is suffering ‘extreme resource usage’.

Check out the full comment straight from DC Evo:

“Bad news. Our Web host has taken the DC Evo network sites offline because of extreme resource usage again, and we’re not sure there’s a way back from this. Our site is apparently using ~267 CPU minutes per day, and they want it under 15.

They’ve given us only 2 options; either take the sites offline permanently or upgrade to a much more robust hosting account (one that costs as much for one month as we pay per year). We simply don’t have the resources to try to upgrade the hosting account, so it’s looking like we’re going to have to take the sites offline.

We are working to backup all of the content and files again, so that we can potentially send them to someone else if they want to try to get the site going again; but I just don’t see any way for us to continue down this path at this time.

We are so sorry for never being able to get things restored to their former glory.”

If you think you can help save a fantastic website and one of the most important resources for Dreamcast homebrew then please contact DC Evo at their Facebook page or Twitter account.
