Release of Time Stalkers Dreamcast Prototype (August 21, 2000)

This Pal version is one month before the final build. However, it contains an extremely advanced debug menu.

It is possible to create items and monsters of your choice, to teleport to the place of your choice, to play NPCs and much more.

This is not a release but I will put it here:

Two Unreleased, Flame Busters for #Xbox Classic and One Online on #PC, by the Swiss studio Komodo.
This was my first search for Unreleased. I was able to discuss with the former director of the star tup.
Like what, there is not only the Dreamcast !

Added a section "Bad dump, disc rot, bad burn" with the following prototype:

-Crazy taxi 2 (version 0.142)
-Gundam (version 0.800)
-Quake 3
-Pen Pen

several dumps by GD-R

If you want to try to repair them, please try crazy taxi 2 !!!

There should be nothing to do to fix them but you never know.

Release and reverse engineering of Mortal Kombat 4 prototype for Dreamcast

VincentNL was able to work on a mysterious Mortal Kombat 4 Dreamcast build in my possession which couldn’t boot up. The only way to learn more about this release, to make it talk, was to reverse engineer data .

I thought it was an Unreleased game. We had to make sure.

You can download it and read a remarkable reverse engineering work on this build below

On May 1st 1998 Sega presented for the first time the Dreamcast by showing the technical demo Tower of Babel created by Yu Suzuki.

You can download the demo in GDI or CDI to burn your own disc. A homemade cover is also available (front, back and the label on the GD-Rom).

The technical demo was found in a Dreamcast development kit. You can also download the image of its hard disk.

You can finally play it on a real Dreamcast. This new version contains music.

Happy New Year !

Release of a Dreamcast prototype "SPACE CHANNEL 5 (Apr 20, 2000)"

It corresponds to one of my old release (to be confirmed). If so, it should be considered as a redump done this time with the BBA method.

To be found here with a NEW next to it :

This looks like a bad dump which is the reason why a lot of the files are broken. What did you use to dump this? Can you redump it with something else?
