    Default Atomiswave to Dreamcast Conversions

    Over the last couple of weeks, Megavolt85 & YZB have been doing some amazing work with converting Atomiswave games over to the Dreamcast.

    Currently, the releases are:

    Demolish Fist

    Dirty Pigskin Football

    Dolphin Blue

    Faster Than Speed

    Fist of the North Star

    Guilty Gear Isuka

    Guilty Gear X

    Kenju

    King Of Fighters XI

    Knights of Valour: The Seven Spirits

    Maximum Speed

    Metal Slug 6

    NeoGeo Battle Coliseum

    Neowave: The King of Fighters

    Ranger Mission

    Rumble Fish

    Rumble Fish 2

    Samurai Shodown VI (Samurai Spirits Tenkaichi Kenkakuden)

    Sports Shooting USA

    The conversions can be found here: Atomiswave to DC Conversions

    Some have burnable CDI files that can be played on a stock Dreamcast. Others will need an ODE or emulation in order to be played.

    I was excited at first about Atomiswave, though I eventually found out the reality is most of the games were made by Sammy which were very inexperienced developers.

    maybe it is worth measuring the polygonal count in some games. Dolphin Blue, Faster Than Speed

    I have to admit that 2d games have made the Dreamcast survive.

    They did a amazing job! With the later patches the games I tried work fine with USB-GDROM.

    I wonder if it was confirmed that the issue with Dolphin Blue's stage 3 bug was due in part to some copy protection the game has programmed into it? It certainly was acting that way and the way they essentially patched out most of the level 3 so it just jumps straight to stage 4 would seem to indicate that as well.

    But yeah many of these have been a lot of fun to play through MODE. No real interest in the light gun games however but still really cool they managed to bring them all over.

    Do the light gun games work with the Dreamcast light guns?

    Yes, but they have to be plugged into ports 3 & 4. You will also need a CRT.

    He should approach Sega and SNK to officialize these.

    I would definitely buy some of these on games disc officially.

    It's unbelievable the interest and talent involved in making these Atomiswave ports possible. My sincerest thanks here.

    Dolphin Blue and KOF XI alone make me giddy.

    But. If the day ever comes that a reliable conversion is made for Rumble Fish 1 or 2 to .CDI... that will be the day that clinches it for me as to why I never need to own a PS2.

    Dreamcast is the system that never dies!!
