Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    The GC version really cut the random battle rates

    and if you had the White Map it doesn't even matter

    I was able to get the GC version for $20 off e-bay. Afterwords, I checked out the local Gamestop and found out they had it for the same price.

    Street Fighter III: Third Strike is sweet

    and Tech Romancer

    and Psychic Force 2012

    Dreamcast still has the best fighting games.

    Also, Skies of Arcadia was so good and if you didn't like all the random battles you could just open and close the disc tray whenever it started thinking about a random battle and it would skip the battle

    What would I have done with all that extra time? Learn a valuable skill?

    The only really memorable thing about the regular combat is that all the characters would keep swinging their weapons even when it wasn't their turn. It was purely aesthetic but it was a nice touch

    oh hey i have dreamcast.

    1. Are these things supposed to be this noisy? I mean it sounds like it's stonewashing jeans inside that tray.

    2. It worked fine for a while, but now the fucker keeps resetting itself for no apparent reason. The intervals at which it does so keep getting shorter and shorter. What gives?

    Yeah it started doing that a few months ago so i put it away. I busted it out recently to finish SOA and it worked fine for a week or so. Then it started doing it again.

    Does it always reset itself, or only when certain games are in there?

    What is the frequency in which it resets?

    edit: I don't think that matters though on how frequently it happens, it is probably the screws pressing down on the wires for the power button. this happens a lot with DC's, so open yours up an loosen the screws, that should do the trick, if it does not, then it is most likely demons.

    man i'll give that a try, but which screws are we talking about, the ones that hold the casing together or screws on the inside?

    You are going to have to open up your dreamcast, then find the wire that leads to the power button, then loosen the two screws that are holding that.

    edit :The screws are probably causing the power to cut off, so just loosen them, and then see if that fixes it.

    As an addendum to that, I totally understand, mine would freeze all the time when playing Skies, usually when I was moving toward a save point, hours of tedious bullshit in tow
