Has anyone tried this new emu for the dc? I understand that there is a 4 meg game size limit, but that it runs acceptably. Anyone checked it out yet?

4 meg?

I've never actually played with Neo Geo emulation, but how big do games like Samurai Showdown get? Are there any semi-popular/popular games that are four meg?

about a third of the games were 4meg or under. Mostly the earlier games. Some of them really fun to play.
 
Yeah, it's a 4MB limit ZIPPED though


Anyways, it's slow, but IMO, playable... I was gonna post some news on the front page about it but my PC seems to be acting weird with all newspro scripts recently

Love this game. probably the best arcade style bowling game out there.

Hollywood,

Yeah I meant zipped. They also need to be mame romsets. Of course, you can use redump to convert them. Dcemulation.com has some info if you go into the forums. You can find info on how to burn a game disc and there is a posted link to an sbi version. Now if only Metal Slug were a smaller zipped file.
 
Yeah, I know about the DCEmu forums... if ya look closely, you'll see who gave the file to everyone on their DSL space


As for Metal Slug on the DC... the closest you can now get is Metal Slug on NeoPocoott (Or however you spell it) However on the XBox, Metal Slug X is already perfectly playbale

Metal Slug X was ok but I though it really easy gameplay. Metal Slug 3 was a better version I thought. I have version 4 but haven't had time to play it yet.

Yeah, there were too many power-ups in X.... the limit in MAME for XBox is 12mb zipped I think... and I havn't played a game that isn't full-speed yet

4 megs is like 5 or 6 games that'll run.

most games are around 25-35 megs, with the biggest being around 90 MB (zipped).

the xbox controller isn't all that bad, and the long way of the L/R triggers allows for very accurate control over acceleration/breaking.

it takes getting used to, but it's not all that horrible.

actually there are about 30 games that fall into that catagory.

Falstaff: Technically you're right, but I think Arakon's statement works quite well if you insert "worth playing" between "games" and "that'll run"...

edit: As it turns out, he's right about the Xbox controller too. I still need to play some kind of insane arcade game with it to determine its true worth, but it's really not awful for Xbox games once you get used to it.

If you've got big enough hands. Or at least not hands as small as mine. I'd like to be able to hold one of the S controllers, but I've yet to see one on a demo box in any store.

You are absolutely right. By the way, the full count of neogeo games that technically fall into the less than 4.5mgs catagory is 68. And most are earlier games, alot of them are japanese language only games, with several being puzzel and/or mahjong games. But most are not worth playing.

On the xbox controler issue, I have learned not to question Arakon too much on his knowledge of this console. He knows his shit!

Quadriflax: try to get hold a the controler that was released with the japanese xbox release. It is quite a bit smaller than the standard controller so might be more confortable to use.

I really like the xbox controller, except i wish the black and white buttons lined up with the other 4, and ive been spoiled by the saturn's D-pad. But, it works great for most games anyway.

also, anyone have examples of these under 5 meg games that are worth playing?
