This looks excellent. Any more details? What language/tools/team members/plot/features?

I need the person for closed testing alpha version on hardware Sega Genesis (Non-TMSS or TMSS Model) / Mega Drive (Non-TMSS or TMSS Model) + Flash cartridge). VDP bugs...

MD1 VA6 TMSS with all addons here, but not much time, so could run your (or anyone's) stuff once a week or so...
You may want to try sega-16 or everdrive forums to find someone more dedicated.

You can sign me up as well. I have a couple of EU MegaDrive Model 2 consoles and a Japanese WonderMega [by Sega, not Victor]. At the moment, I'm only able to test on the EU MD2, because I have no way of flashing to my MegaCart, and my Neo Myth doesn't work with WonderMega, but I'll be buying Mega Everdrive X7 next week.

Nice to see advances on this game, we are waiting for a video or a demo to watch it in motion.

Perhaps you are using too much dithering, it's very noticeable those pixels this days.
I'm a good decoder, don't worry about that. But more than that, I always find useful to know the
the whys and wherefores of things. To USA with love.

Same video, if I'm not mistaken.

Maybe, but it's the first time I've seen it, so it's new to me. :lol:

I was talking to SegaTim. Sorry about the confusion.

No problem. I figured you probably were and that the post was merely pointing out a video already existed, but it did make me aware of it as well, so it had some good side-effects.
