But it was released - just on the Dreamcast, not the Saturn. I for one am greatful this decision was made, because I don't think the Saturn would have been up to the task.Originally posted by SeGa4life@June 05 2002,17:15
WOW.......All I can say is Thank You...You Da Man...
Man I got choked u watching that.....I can't beleave it NEVER made it..!
Do you have a reputable source for this? As far as I know, there's no way to add just a texture processor to the Saturn...Also the additional texture processor it was claimed to have probably wasn't a cheap add on. If it came with the game I'd think it'd be a bit expensive, and if it didn't, many people really wouldn't go out and buy the accessory by itself just for one game (on the other hand, i'm pretty sure many japanese would've bought it for VF3 which would've used the same add on).
Not really. That might be used to add a complete VDP, but unless the VDP1 exposes some of its internal architecture on that bus (which seems unlikely), you can't add just a texturing unit, because there'd be nothing to handle the rest of the drawing process.The slot on the back (where the MPEG card goes) has direct access to the framebuffer, so that might be a possible way to do it.
