Been working on a few things, like ways to do direct color display on the MD. It would make games like Wolf3D for SCD look better than trying to squish it into 15 colors.
Fantastic! Is the Sega CD port just for people with out Everdrives, just a technical challenge or is there any other reason for it?
I've always been wondering. Is it possible for a SCD to be emulated via the everdrive? Programing in some sort of delay for the CD drive (in general or game specific) can't be all that difficult. I'm just wondering if it is even able to play that way, or if the cart slot is literally unable to do that without tremendous amounts of work.
Duke Nukem 3D was on just the Genesis not Sega CD . However the Sega CD did see Battle Frenzy!Mainly as a challenge... the SCD should have been able to do a decent Wolf3D, but never got it. It got some similar games, like Duke Nukem 3D (which is more like Wolf3D than the real Duke3D), but not Wolf3D itself.
I know I'm replying to an old discussion, but I just got Gunlord for the Dreamcast. As far as I know all the unofficial Dreamcast games use a normal CD, so anyone can copy them. It obviously hasn't stopped them from making new Dreamcast games.
I once went through a list of non-US Sega games trying to figure out which ones were 1) not licensed games and 2) were from obscure companies, so might be willing to license for a US release like Beggar Prince. For the Sega CD I came up with the Psychic Detective series and Nostalgia 1907.

Another way of doing direct color on the MD is to DMA color data directly to the background color register, but that also isn't supported by emulators.
I'll be checking this out with the Everdrive as soon as the TV is free. Thanks Chilly!
Sur De Wave looks like a pretty obscure company and I'd have no idea where to begin if you were looking for rights holders.
