Been meaning to post about this one for a while now. Some of you may remember all of that game footage that was floating around out there of that Wii emulator that was running games in HD resolutions. I may be a little bit late to the party, but there's a Dreamcast emulator that can do the same thing - except it has a nifty feature that can actually display Dreamcast games in wide screen, even if they did not support it originally.
If for some reason the video gets cut off, hit up this link to watch it at Youtube.
To be honest, I made this video because I want to scare up support for the emulator. For some bizarre reason, it doesn't support gamepads at all; the best you can do is run something like Xpadder (which translates pushing a button on a gamepad into a keyboard key press), but that completely eliminates the ability to use analog sticks. Obviously, this becomes a huge problem, because a good 80-90% of the Dreamcast library is played using an analog stick. I was hoping that, somehow, this video would get some people to light a fire under somebody's ass to get it done. Though NullDC supports quite a large number of games, most of them are very difficult to play because there's no analog stick support. A few of them, like Jet Set Radio (can't tag anything) and the original Sonic Adventure (get stuck in the sewers), are outright unplayable because of the lack of analog.
So hit up their forums and pester somebody about it. Link your friends to my video. Spread the word! A really good Dreamcast emulator is almost in our grasp; we just need to show our support so they're motivated to work on it again.
