W- well, it was only months this time, I'm sorry ;_;

This is really cool, thanks! I have no experience with making SD isos, but I'll try making one for the new demo.

So yeah, there's a smol new demo:

Still has the stuttering, much to my chagrin, but alas. The problem is the realtime compression applied to textures that are being moved between main memory and texture memory. So the plan is to try out some other compression libraries and/or techniques. There are some better techniques for small files, which should improve performance.

Something I didn't talk about in the last post are the display errors. The most apparent one is the lower bit depth in Dolmexica, which results in some noticeably ugly textures, especially visible in the backgrounds. The second problem lies in one of the blending modes. While additive and alpha blending were easy enough to use with KallistiOS, subtractive blending is less straightforward. In the demo, this is visible at the title screen. If you compare the Dreamcast and Windows versions, you'll notice there are some differences. That's because subtractive blending does not work on the Dreamcast yet. Those graphical errors aren't high on the priority list while the game still runs like a garbage fire, but I thought I'd at least talk about them like I did with the other ones.

Overall, progress felt slow these last two months. My goal for the next demo (early may) is to eliminate the runtime errors and implement all state controllers/triggers, so adding custom characters - the whole thing a moddable engine is for - finally works reliably. I'll expect there'll still be some grave issues, so it'll probably be another demo and not a proper release.
For Great Justice!

I'll be rooting for you! I'd love to see our beloved Dreamcast get a fully working Mugen port. Take your time and continue to keep us posted on your work. :)

Omg, this is an awesome project. Many memories come to my mind when I played with MUGEN engine. it's time to prove it on my Dreamcast!

Only two question.

- Why the sound on Dreamcast not work?
- Exists any list of compatible characters/stages for download it?

Many thanks for publish this project

The engine is unstable and Captain Dreamcast said he was going to work on porting mugen or making a mugen on the DC. I was right on board for making a game in this engine aswell. I been looking towards using the Quake engine to do my bidding.
