Pull requests would be fine for one-off / new people. After a commit or two I think it makes more sense to add someone to the project.

(also, Hello there!)

*edit*

How about we also get rid of that leaked apk?

Cool, I haven't looked at the code yet, but I was thinking some of the input stuff that Littleguy did such a great job on could benefit the reicast Android app.  I'll take a look at it when I have some time.

Looking good ;) well i played the only 2 games i own still and ripped (am planning to get another dreamcast again sometime) and MvC2 works amazingly well and sonic adventure 2 runs full speed but suffers with horrible graphics breaks every other second or so. But still to be able to bash around with the hulk on the old fighter is well worth it.

@skmp, @PsyMan - If you guys need any help with input devices, please don't hesitate to contact me.  I've become a bit of an expert on all the quirks of most controllers on the market today, and I have about a dozen different models to test on, including moga, ouya, and xperia play.  Start a thread, send me a PM, or contact me through my github account (littleguy77).  It would be my pleasure. :)

I would love to congratulate Psyman on getting the emulator out to the public, the interface is great and the speed is considerably good, I will be getting a new phone very soon and reliving my childhood :D

Good luck with reicast :)

Tested some games on LG G2, connected on TV with Sony Sixaxis BT Gamepad. All on alpha r5.

Giga Wings:

Sonic Adventure:

Shenmue (with graphic problems on r5)

Rayman II:

And at least some minutes of gameplay on Crazy Taxi:
On Ouya, the game has flickering and sometimes black polygons on background. On G2, it looks much better.

So, for now, I should better stop spamming this board with my stupid videos.  ;D

Cool, thx for uploadin.

Do you have the problem on shenmue where the app force closes as you walk outside? If not maybe a bad dump for me.

Sorry, as you can see, my device shows only graphic artifacts, so Shenmue is unplayable for me.
I never had a Dreamcast and no DC emulation experience since release of reicast.

Ok so I just finished testing around 200 games

Good news is I only have found 5 games that do not work which I know are good rips.

basic the gist of my post here is that 99% of all dreamcast games will at least boot and are somewhat playable in Reicast. From my exp if u dont make it past the Sega logo then it is most likely a bad rip or you are using a scene release.

I am not going to elaborate on specific gfx issues for each game but have some tips for people struggling to get their games to work.

1. CDI files do work but if the if cdi is in caps then reicast will not recgnize it...needs to be lower case ".cdi"

2. Scene releases by Echleon and others who replace some of the games binaries with little songs and name plates instead of the default Sega screen will not work. I only had a few of these for unreleased DC games such as Half Life. Presumably if you fix the binaries then the games should work. I found a Half Life Rip that is unaltered and am going to test it shortly. I would link but it is against the rules

3. Almost every game works most all will make it past the dreamcast logo and sega logos. If that occurs and you get a freeze at say the games loading screen or the start screen then it isn't a rip issue it is an emulation issue. For example Gauntlet Legends works for me on NullDC on my PC but in Reicast it freezes at the "Gauntlet Legends Loading screen". The rip is fine and I tested my rip 3 different ways in both CDI and GDI formats and it made no difference. On the other hand if anyone else can get Gauntlet legends to work please let me know so I can look at my rip again but I am confident it is correctly done.

4. There are a few games whose screens go black after the Sega Logo but are still working : Omikron the Nomad Soul being one of them. I know the rip is good cause it works on NullDc and cause the sound and button presess in Reicast are working. Just some gfx issue with that game makes everything black (again if anyone has had Omikron boot in reicast please share how you did the rip with me)

5. Finally here is a list of games I cannot get to boot in reicast: Culdcept II, Psyvariar 2, Slave Zero, Starlancer. I believe the rips are good but they freeze at the Sega Logo so it may just be my rip or a compatibility issue that just stops the emulation at that point.

If you have the games in .gdi format, you can reduce the image size with the tool chdman.

A short explanation here:

http://boards.openpandora.org/topic/15211-reicast-dreamcast-emulator/page-5#entry301676

for example:
Game: 18 Wheeler - American Pro Trucker v1.500 (2001)(Sega)(NTSC)(US)[!].gdi

was round about 1.2 GB

size reduced with chdman is only 241.1MB

The result on other games will differ, but it's a nice option to save space on your device.
If your computer runs OS X, you need to install the SDL framework.

Half-Life still crashes in r6. Interestingly with both the dynarec and interpreter, guess I don't know too much about how Dreamcast emulation works :P

Half Life uses the MMU. We don't support that. Not going to run for the next few years either.

That's it. :P
