Saw this posted on AA with talk of starting this as a project by a few others. I've already got a half complete version of this. Ill try to post up some video footage or a binary when i get a chance. The levels did have to be cut down quite a bit in certain areas to keep from crashing.
Also larger textures tend to give the jaguar a fit too.
Thought id share. Made this a few years ago. BTW i have one for sale and the other could be sold too im sure if i contacted the owner. I dont have a price in mind but make me a good offer.
For anyone that still wishes to play dreamcast games online and wants to see what has been brought back to life check here..
Ive been following progress here for a while and seems that DreamPi is the way to go if you dont have a broadband adapter.
If anyone is interesting in setting up a a few matches of something, i think it would be super fun!
So i started on this a while back with a video on youtube. Its been re-vamped a bit and is close to completion. Needs work still but now that carl forhan has released stable networking code i think this game obviously can benefit from it. The levels are the main thing left at this point and they take a good chunk of time obviously.
Ill try to post some updates here when i get time.
For now, here is the OLDER video taken a long while back.

A Cart release is in the cards once its done.
So the thought has crossed my mind to do another small run of Blackout! on cartridge. Ive seen a few looking for a copies over the past few months and years.
I'm not strapped for cash and i don't really need the money but i have been seeing a few want the game and honestly, i see people paying $130 on ebay for CD versions that originally sold for $40-45. Honestly i dont feel thats right but ebayers will do what they will. Our original intentions was never to make it a rare game to have.
As long as we have the ability to make them still id like to keep the option out there for a few to get a copy if they wish. If there is enough interest, we may go through the trouble to make a few more.
For those that have the game already, beat it on hard and you'll get an extra stage to play on the main menu.
also 3*#1 on the title screen gives you the sound test so you can play the music and sfx from the game at will.
If you DONT know what this game is check out the video below. Blackout is a variation on the game lights out with its own quirks. It was our first attempt at a jaguar game.

Soooo.... ive been wanting to do this for a while now and i had seen a few recent posts around on the internet about people making NES PC's and whatnot.
I had an old tiny pc sitting around and its literally PERFECT for the genesis model 1 console, and since the genesis was my favorite as a kid, i figured, what a perfect project.
So i got to work and in short time i was able to have a running prototype up and running. I apologize in advance for the crappy cell phone picture but its all ive got until i can find my camera charging cable.
Anyhow, the specs on the box are a 1.0 ghz processor, 512mb of ram, 1gb flash storage (no giant hd or heat). The most unique thing about it is that it has no fans for the processors, just giant heatsinks. The motherboard was designed this way as it was a fanless thin client pc originally (very compact and silent without the heat). This comes at an expense of speed but, you dont need much to run genesis/32x/sega cd games...
Anyhow, so far i've replaced the genesis controller ports with standard db9 connectors that wire into the motherboard usb ports with converter chips (retrousb.com). This means you can plug in any original genesis controller (minus the menacer). This so far is my only gripe with the project is that the ports are silver and i had to use screws to hold them in place through the casing which doesnt look horrible, but its definately not black and hidden like the oem genesis ports.
Currently working on implementing a menu system right now that windows XPE boots right into and allows you to select multiplayer netplay games or standard local play with the genesis controller. For internet games, the motherboard will have a thumb usb receiver for a wireless keyboard and mouse combo for chatting/setting up netgames.
Best part is when this box boots, you see ZERO windows logos and it boots lightning fast into the menu system.
Ive still got more work to do with the switches for power and whatnot but this is fairly easy on to do on this one. Also working on wiring up a breadboard with ethernet jack with traffic lights to put where the EXT port was on the back of the genesis.
Also need to add the VGA to HDMI converter inside the shell too.
When its done it should have a 12v dc power plug, ethernet, hdmi connections and thats all...
Oh yeah might add a hacked sonic cart in place in the cart slot for visual appeal or another title instead.
Didnt really introduce myself after signing up (forgot somewhat)
Anyhow just thought id say hello. I'm the programmer at Storm Works Interactive, and i guess im kinda weird because i like to develop software on the atari jaguar....
Anyhow, Looking forward to chatting about retro games with a few
