Look who's back
Azuco sent out this nice picture
to show that he is still working on A-saturn, and that he has made a lot of
progress, and who knows, maybe he'll be up to Hyperions standards soon. Hopefully
A-saturn will be released soon, and maybe some idiot will say it's a "gay emulator"
Here are some more news on STG. They see their first project as an indication of
things to come, like RPG's. They also think that translating saturn games will
be harder than SNES games. Most of the developers have coded a lot of saturn stuff.
There will probably not be anything similar to the .ips files that SNES translations
usually have, instead you will have to download the whole game.
There are two new links, not emulation related, but some people like the sites......
A saturn translation group have started on
themselves 'the Saturn Translation Group' they will translate some jap game into
Scarrow have fixed a some problems that Hyperion had, and he's showing them to the world on his site (is this the most public emulation project ever?) and if you don't have anything better to do before he releas the first public version, why don't you go and check it out.
First, more reports on the second beta of Hyperion have come in. It is actually much faster than the first one (se the false report below) and Scarrow said that he would need a computer 20 times faster than his development machine to emulate a saturn in real-time (if he don't do things to improve the speed). Guess we'll need some new computers........
Second, if the lightning strikes, it sometimes would be wise to pull out the modem from the wall jack. That would prevent at least one site from being late at updating......
Third, Dave posted on his site that he's made a lot of progress on the VDP2. Wonder how PowerSEmu will stack up against Hyperion........
And finally, Alucard's adobe has changed its name to EmuSaturn. You can still find it on the usual site (links section has all the sites listed in this update). There's also a guestbook on it now.
The second beta of Hyperion is out, and is available to all beta-testers. Scarrow
has been working hard trying to work out how to emulate the cd-drive, but that
isn't incorporated yet. But here are some features that are:
And both PC-saturn and SSF seem to be worked on, but there is nothing exciting to report.
To almost quote Al Green : "I can't belive that it's real, the way Hyperion make me
TITAN IS BACK!!!!
Tunek now seem to have a lot less to do (it seems no one else understand the concept of free socialism, at least not in fucking shit Kalmar län) so TITAN will be regulary updated again. First is a recap of what has happened in the time TITAN's been gone. And if you don't check Alucard's and Emulad's site you'll need this.
The most sad news since Konami cancelled an english Policenauts, über-cool Azuco
announced that he quit developing A-saturn. All the ten people
in the saturn emulation community fell into deep shock, but suddenly became very
interested in the 'secret room' on Azuco's site. And with all right..............
And on the joint Azuco/TITAN messageboard everything was idiotic as always. Why does emulation seem to bring out the best in some people and the worst in other? Answer whereever you can.
