XENOCIDER KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN IS LIVE!!!!



Xenocider is a 3D arcade action game with retro-futuristic aesthetics for Dreamcast, Windows, Mac, Linux and 3DS!

An innovative approach to the on-rails shooter genre and the first 3D arcade game for the Dreamcast in over a decade, this is our personal 3D homage to the classic Space Harrier, with a little influence from Galaxy Force and Sin & Punishment thrown into the mix!

As we promised, we made our playable demo available for download. Visit the Kickstarter campaign and enjoy!

Help us write a new episode of the history of the Dreamcast. Pledge now!

Well it's one month late but it's worth to make a news about it !

Description
A good curse makes a good game (or so they say)! turned into a half-human, half-lizard monstrosity by the Meka-Dragon, a lonesome adventurer is facing the challenge of a lifetime! In search for a cure, our mutated anti-hero will explore the many traps of Monster Land... and defeat many stuff-throwing, curse-wielding dragons. How many more transformations can one hopeful body survive, as it turns into a Lizard, a Mouse, a Piranha, a Lion, and a Hawk... The six different forms of our shape-shifting hero make up the cast of this non-stop action-adventure platformer!

Featuring
  • A huge interconnected world!
  • 6 playable forms for our shape-shifting hero, with different abilities!
  • Dragons of all kinds! A Zombie Dragon! A Mummy Dragon! A Samurai Dragon!
  • An eye-patch wearing shop-keeper pig who may or may not provide a sense of warmth and direction!
  • Beautiful, hand-drawn animated graphics!
  • A memorable soundtrack, based on Shinichi Sakamoto's originals, re-imagined and recorded with classical instruments!
  • ...and more to be announced!

There appears to be an issue with the "login" link/area not appearing in the top right of the page under our default "Segaxtreme" style. All other styles currently appear to work correctly. I don't have time at the moment to look into what's causing this, but in the meantime either:

  • Go to the very bottom of any page, and click "Segaxtreme" on the bottom left. Choose a different style.
  • On the upper right under the forums there is an icon to show quick links. If you click this, you can get a link to a login page.
  • Visit https://segaxtreme.net/login/ directly.

WHAT'S NEW

Tessellation for better distorted sprite drawing.
If your device supports OpenGL ES AEP, you can use GPU Tessellation.

FIX Graphics problem:
* Three Dirty Dwarves is black screen.
* Doukou menu selection is not shown.
* Gale Racer does not draw any polygons.
* Battle Arena Toshinden Remix rotate screen
Fix Regression:
GUARDIANHEROES
Mesh rendering

The new Perspective correction using Tessellation option is amazing on 3d games.
The author of the uoYabause, an Android branch of Yabause on PC with support for the more advanced OpenGLes3x rendering, has shown a few demos of his new idea to enable perspective correction into Sega Saturn emulation with a hardware renderer.

"Sega Saturn draws polygons as quad.Thanks for this method, VDP1 can draw distorted image correctly. Modern GPUs draw polygons as triangles. They can't draw distorted quad image correctly.

To avoid this failure, Generally perspective correction method is used. Since Perspective correction uses z value in 3D space and VDP1 does not have z vale, VDP1 emulator needs to calculate z value. This method works fine, polygons are draw as if they are in 3D space. like this.


But in some games These polygon are draw as just distorted image. At this time this emulation method does not work.That's problem!"
