Yeah, I use Makaron too and NullDC right now, but I would definetely recommend this latest version of Demul. It works (unlike the last 2 for me) and it runs alot of things really well. I'm glad to see 3 healthy DC emulators out there. Keep up the good work!!

As far as I know all of the active DC emus have the head glitch fixed.

Anyway, great progress from the Demul guys. Keep it up. :D

I tried makaron T11/2 & nullDC 1.0.3, although not as visible as before its still there.. (though even with the head glitch nullDC probably is the best emu for this game, Demul may not have the head glitch but it suffers from other graphical glitches :lol: )

/!\ WARNING /!\

DEmul as of 5.2 is no longer compatible with Ecco (the screen goes black after the dreamcast logo, during the splashscreen, shortly before the "press start" message is suppose to appear) so that game should be taken off the compatibility list ! ;)
(yup I tried all the different options & settings in the emu)

it may also have lost compatibility with other games as well

btw previous versions may have been "compatible" with the game (and they were, sort of, since I tested them - up to and inc. 4.8 - the screen still went black but only for a moment, then the splashscreen reappeared & the game loaded fine) but since they didnt have an FPU-limit option the game ran WAY too fast to be playable

Wow, you really, really like Ecco. :wub: Between this and your excited thread in the NullDC, it looks like you should just get a dreamcast and the game. And please stop freaking out about Ecco everywhere, it's just one game...and its about a dolphin...never could get into that series.

"freakin out" ? lol...quote the specific part plz ? Im just pointing out bugs & glitches in the emulator & Ecco happens to be the 1 & only game I wanna play in the DC series atm, since it aint got a PC port
(and why buy a console just for 1 game when I have a PC and I know some1 who already has the disk ? ^_^)
besides I also said other games could be affected !

if this thread aint for reporting bugs in DEmul 0.5.2 then where should they be reported ?


btw my post wuz addressed to the developers :) figured they'd wanna be informed about this sort of thing cuz, u know, it kinda helps to know the bugs when debugging stuff..

Yes, "freaking out". I've never seen anyone put up a "WARNING" to report their game doesn't work properly, when it never did in this emu. That is freaking out....just like your thread in NullDC right now: "MAJOR graphics problem in Ecco the Dolphin!!!!!".

I understand this is the only game you want to play (which given the DC library and the game in question is very funny) but you have to just state the bug and not act as if there's an emergency somewhere. C'mon, even in the other thread everyone told you to calm down. You just need to relax a little bit. The game will be playable someday. :thumb:

tbh I hesitated between "MAJOR" and "EXTREME" (but hush dont tell anyone)
hey the end justifies the means, one of the developers responded within a day. so at least it got attention :innocent:

Ive played another similar game (Jaws Unleashed, very fun) but that one had a PC version
btw Ecco happens to be one of the very few DC games (maybe the only one ?) that has earned unanimously positive reviews across different websites, figure thats gotta mean something about the game itself

but you have to just state the bug and not act as if there's an emergency somewhere. C'mon, even in the other thread everyone told you to calm down. You just need to relax a little bit. The game will be playable someday. :thumb:
in the other thread "everyone" wuz just 1 person so far (tho it may be a very important person so his or her word may count for several ppl, I dunno since Im kinda new here :/)

Emulation isnt out there for supporting piracy, in the future keep some of your thoughts for yourself and refrain from such comments.

yeah man I read da rulez - so Ima ask ya, what the heck u talking about ? care to point the "piracy" part ?
(unless borrowing a legally owned game from a classmate constitute piracy in your book)

so um lets see :
"NGEmu takes a "no tolerance" stance against the trading/sharing/discussion of illegal software, also known as warez."
so Ecco is illegal software/warez ? or is it the emulator itself thats illegal ?

"Links to or requests for illegally-obtained commercial material, such as ROMs, ISOs, or BIOS images will not be tolerated."
where did I request such link ? and fyi I didnt break into his home & steal his game or something (otherwise Id have stolen his console too lol jk) so unless lending a game is illegal Ive no idea what your trying to say



me guess maybe u quoted the wrong post, if so no big deal :D

You need to own a console to use either nulldc/makaron or Demul :p

I aint accusing you of anything maybe you loaned the Dreamcast as well, its just that this kind of talks tend to reach piracy statements at one point :p.

if thats the truth then whats the point in havin an emulator? oO ppl could just use their console instead of their PC

this like saying that if someone lends you a music CD then you gotta have a CD player & u cant use your PC CD-rom drive to read it. lol

hey your the one who said the p word :p

his console, his bios, his disk, his game & he does what he wants with it (inc lend it :D)


tho come to think of it if none of those emus work I can try borrow the console too but prob is he still plays regularly (tho hes had it for like 9 years wtf) so Ima have to wait till hes no longer hooked :(
