    Gouraud Shading doesn't work on palette modes "on paper", but works in practice (it alters the palette code instead of the color value). That's why I'm wondering - does 8-bit or hi-res mode...
  2. Saturn could do a bowtie quad, had less texture...

    Saturn could do a bowtie quad, had less texture distortion for square textures (but more for triangles), and hi-res screen resolution did not affect the amount of textures you could use (however it...
  3. Actually the X360 vs PS3 is not unlike the...

    Actually the X360 vs PS3 is not unlike the comparison of PS1 and Saturn, performance wise. PS3 has theoretically more cpu grunt but it is very hard to max it out and it is arguable if it really is...
  4. It's kind of a different situation for the...

    It's kind of a different situation for the Playstation 3, many devs could get around simply using middleware software to get their games running on all consoles, or even ignore the PS3 completely and...

    The Wii was definitely a factor early on, it sold extremely well extremely fast and people just didn't bother getting the expensive nextgen consoles. Also you could get a Xbox 360 and a Wii at the...

    Yeah but that happened because the Wii wasn't a factor anymore, Microsoft was too busy pissing away every advantage they had by forcing the Kinect down everyones throats, and after so many years the...

    I believe the support for certain features is different depending on card, I had better compatibility in general with the last (1998) cards. And by that I mean they could at least play the audio and...
  8. Yes, but that's something that the devkits...

    Yes, but that's something that the devkits improved upon greatly over time, and could have improved even further had the platform stayed alive longer. But navigating the VDP1/2 for the most optimal...
  9. The VDP1/2 was the same originally and they still...

    The VDP1/2 was the same originally and they still would've had to make development tools out of nothing, so no, it would have been exactly as difficult to develop for the Saturns "original design".

    You are right, I double checked and it seems that three-letter sports games are divided up between EA, Acclaim, and Sega.

    EA:
    FIFA Soccer 96
    FIFA Soccer 97
    FIFA Road to World Cup 98
    NBA Live...
  11. No, that was the Dreamcast, they wanted...

    No, that was the Dreamcast, they wanted exclusivity for all sports titles and Sega just brought that studio that made the DC sports games. For the Saturn you had a shitload of nba/nfl/nhl/madden...
  12. If the Saturn would've sold as much as the PS1,...

    If the Saturn would've sold as much as the PS1, Sega would've lost so much money on manufacturing that they would've gone bankrupt by 1998. There's that Hideki Sato interview where he explains that...

    Agreed, the problems so far seem more up to poor storage.

    Like people using those CD booklets that can store dozens of discs in a plastic holder. The plastic could end up stuck to the disc surface...

    Radiant Silvergun probably pushed the Saturn VDP2 through most effects it can normally do.
  15. You make a good point in that those may have had...

    You make a good point in that those may have had only one or two runs, and if the games in question have manufacturing defects, then the most if not all of the original discs are on the way to...
  16. If the issues are related to manufacturing...

    If the issues are related to manufacturing plants/runs, then it only affects certain print runs, and you'll only see it on those. If PD Saga wasn't made on a bad batch, then it won't have issues...
  17. Not true, they could cheapen out on disc...

    Not true, they could cheapen out on disc manufacturing at any point. Bronzing happened with discs made in the 90s.

    CDRs are, oddly enough, not that unreliable. Less reliable than factory pressed...
  18. There were some factories that made lower quality...

    There were some factories that made lower quality discs which had air bubbles between the plastic and the data layer, plus they used a type of metal on the data layer that was susceptible to...

    The forward+B and down+B air attacks all have 1 single "hit", and it's not quite clear when they trigger. After they get triggered, the attack does not connect any more. So normally, your flying kick...

    Impressive job!



    you may also consider using its PCM chip to further enhance the sound. Potential uses would be
    - higher quality samples
    - a really baller "soundfont" for the midi music. Load...

    I think it's a myth that comes from the late 90s when CD burners only became available at consumer prices. You don't even need to "burn properly" nowadays since modern blank discs have chemical...

    Phoebe needs 1 jumper soldered and only if you get one that doesn't match one of the three types of model 2 boards that exist. Also some model 1s also require Phoebe, since the model difference was...

    I'd go for a modchip, more reliable. But if you don't have the skill to install a Rhea / Phoebe (which requires only the skill to use a screwdriver) then installing a modchip would be nuclear physics...

    C64 multicolour games use 160x200 and don't look blurry at all, unless you use the built-in RF modulator.
