    Here is another release for all you die-hard Saturn fans :)

    This is a port of REminiscence by cyx, an engine to play Flashback (see Mobygames) by Delphine software.

    The engine requires you to have the datafiles from the pc version of the game.


    You can grab binaries and sources here.


    Some notes taken from the readme:

    Code:
    
    FEATURES OF THE PORT:
    
    * Controls via normal Saturn pad:
    
    	- CROSS: movement
    
    	- START: enter function/use inventory item
    
    	- A:     run/jump/action
    
    	- B:	 extract/holster gun
    
    	- X:	 inventory
    
    	- Z:	 escape/in-game menu
    
    * Saving/Loading on internal saturn memory (savegames are compressed to 
    
      to take up less space)
    
    * Added Saturn specific entries to in-game menu (free blocks, sram clean,
    
      mute/enable speech)
    
    * Sound is mixed on the slave SH cpu to speed up the game (afaik it has
    
      same speed AS the PC version).
    
    * Game uses a level selector instead of a password based system.
    
    * Read-ahead caching to speedup loading from cd
    
    * Modified some code to avoid caching too much game data into ram, this
    
      way the game can be played on an unexpanded Sega Saturn.
    
    

    For other informations, refer to the readme files included in the archive.


    Enjoy!

    I finally got the time to test it on my Saturn yesterday, and the only thing I can say is : WOW !

    You made a hell of a job on this port, congratulations :rock:

    Now I have to test it on my latest Saturnin build to see how it behaves ;)

    I'm slowly going through the pile of stuff I have to do, so I tried to test the iso with Saturnin 0.40 : it works surprisingly well, albeit a bit slow.
