Golden Axe Remake DC: Special Edition [Revision 2019]

Post#1 » Sat Nov 23, 2019 6:20 pm

Golden Axe Remake is an enhanced version of the arcade original. This game was initially made for Windows by Chinese OpenBoR coder utunnels. utunnels also helped a great deal with the Dreamcast version. He vastly optimized the script language in OpenBoR and did many other engine related code optimizations to allow the game to run on the Dreamcast's 200Mhz CPU and 16Mbyte RAM. (In the future we will use the DC's 8Mbyte Video RAM and 2 Mbyte Sound RAM too! ) My part in this release were the RAM related optimizations to the mod itself. I also recorded the music.

Features:

- 13 different playable characters
- 4 hidden characters
- 3 game modes (Story, Original and The Duel).
- Story Mode with multiple routes
- A total of 21 stages
- The Duel with 20 missions and 15 exclusive arenas
- More than 20 different enemies
- Three beasts to ride
- Exclusive features for each character
- 1 to 4 players simultaneously
- Original Soundtrack
- Compatible with NTSC, PAL-60, VGA

Is there a way to have an option to turn off the smoothing? I much prefer to see the pixels in my 2D titles. Just a question, not a demand. :)

So... newbie type question, if I want to play this on my actual Dreamcast hardware what exactly do I need? I downloaded the Exe and extracted the CDI from it, but that CDI is 800+ megs. Do I need 800mb cds to burn this to or am I missing a key part here? I mean, the game can't be that large, right?

It's got a dummy file it will burn to a normal 700mb cdr with img burn.. but all theses using my openbor engine up date take to long to load from a cdr there really for a GDEMU still takes 1 to 4 mins. from a cdr can take 10 to 15 mins thats not useable really


So i would not advise using my update engine from a cdr.. till i fix this really gdemu only

Like Ian Michael said, you can just burn it. Games bigger than 800 MB will always still burn when they have dummies.

There are some obscure SEGA Dreamcast games that are too big for standard CD CD-Rs, and actually use 800MB or 900MB discs, or oversize CDIs like CH Segagaga, which is way too big to fit on a Cd.

The games from Ripfire, Ian Michael, etc., all fit on standard CD-Rs if the game is to be burned on a CD. I've burned some of them myself. If using ImgBurn, remember to download the Dreamcast extra files from the website.

Also, thanks to Ripfire for another Dreamcast game!
