  20. Dreamcast Resurrection - 2010 (since 2008)
  21. ===================================================================================================
  22. Check for more releases at these forums (search for user "TuxTheWise"):
  23. snesorama.us (all releases, see my signature)
  24. segahub.org (recent releases)
  25. dreamcast-talk.com (recent releases)
  26. ===================================================================================================
  27. NOTE: I've seen some people uploading my releases in other servers. I recommend you always getting
  28. my releases of my uploads in the forums above, because sometimes I release fixes or re-launch some
  29. games that have problems. If you get my uploads you'll be sure of having the latest releases.
  30. Additionally, you'll get the original package, not images made from discs, so you'll be sure that
  31. nothing is corrupted.
  32. ===================================================================================================

  34. Sonic Adventure International *Repack* (NTSC-J)
  35. -----------------------------------------------
  36. Ripped: Webbrowser.
  37. Downsampled: Audio 44khz -> 32khz; videos.
  38. Source: GD dump.
  39. === ATTENTION: ===
  40. You need to execute the "unpack.bat" before burning, it will unpack the .ecm file and create your
  41. .cdi images.
  42. If you need to apply any patch, do it in the unpacked .cdi file, not in the .ecm file.
  43. ==================
  44. === ATTENTION: ===
  45. Two images will be created by the "unpack.bat":
  46. Sonic Adventure International (Repack) (English Speech) - DCRES.cdi
  47. Sonic Adventure International (Repack) (Japanese Speech) - DCRES.cdi
  48. Record the one with the speech you want, and select the proper option in the Options menu of the
  49. game, else you won't hear any voice.
  50. ==================
  51. Finally I was able to release a single disc release of Sonic Adventure with stereo sound. There
  52. was a price to pay though: japanese and english voices had to be separated in different discs and
  53. videos quality suffered considerably. They are slighty better in the English voices disc (I had
  54. extra ~5mb), but they got fine in both discs, and won't be a problem at all. I'm very proud of my
  55. trade-off choices in this game, and I'm pretty sure you'll like it too. Dude, sound is stereo!
  56. File order also has been more optimized.
  57. Oh, and people who keep bothering about japanese voices: they're clearly not exactly the same of
  58. english voices, so subtitles aren't the real translation. Blame the developers. So if you're not
  59. sure what to use, I recommend the English version (even being the adapted japanese content, voices
  60. and subtitles match), but it's your choice at the end.
  61. Even being a NTSC-J region game, it will work in any region console as usual and it will have 5
  62. languages for subtitles.
  63. PAL users, the game will show 50/60hz selector when booting on your consoles.
  64. Enjoy another nice DCRES work.
  65. Features of my release:
  66. - Not corrupted files at all, it was made with GD dump files.
  67. - Used custom DCRES optimization techniques. It means faster loadings and less Dreamcast reader
  68. noise.
  69. - Selfboot.
  70. About the game:
  71. - It has VGA Box support.
  72. Other comments:
  73. - "Extras" folder in the pack contains some useless stuff. It also contains some wallpapers that
  74. were in the CD part of GD.
  75. - Release comes with manual (of original Sonic Adventure) and covers (low quality).

  106. Sonic Adventure International (NTSC-J)
  107. --------------------------------------
  108. Ripped: Internet feature; 2 not used music tracks (read more below).
  109. Downsampled: Music and sound of videos monoized; videos downsampled (great quality, read more
  110. below).
  111. Source: GD dump.
  112. This is the final version of Sonic Adventure for Dreamcast. I read that Sonic Adventure was
  113. released under pressure to make it quick, so it came with a lot of glitches. This is a revised
  114. version that correct them, and changed some other things. As far as I played, I noticed changes in
  115. behaviour of first boss (Chaos 0), so there must be more changes in the game. Play it, find the
  116. changes and tell me later :)
  117. Note that although this is a japanese game, it has english voices and multi-language texts
  118. included. It even has 50/60hz selector for PAL users. Primary language is selected according to
  119. your bios configuration, but it can be changed in menu if you want.
  120. This release has high quality media. Starting with the music. It was monoized using a high quality
  121. decoder, so you hardly will notice any difference between this release and the original GD. I had
  122. some problems working with loop tracks, but fortunately I had the same problem with Sonic Adventure
  123. 2 so I used the same program I made before and everything is working right now.
  124. After that, I decided to keep the japanese voices, so I had very few space for videos. I deleted
  125. web browser files, and ripped two tracks that are not played in the game (except in Sound Test).
  126. They'reincluded in "Extras" folder in the pack, so check them if you want. I was almost finishing
  127. thevideos when I got Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut for PC. I checked the files and found high
  128. quality videos, so I decided using them as source, what would make quality of my videos much
  129. higher. The only difference between this version videos and Dreamcast ones was logo in the
  130. introduction video, then I edited it and merged the logo of Dreamcast video with the Sonic
  131. Adventure DX, and it got perfect. You can't notice that the video was edited, even now that I told
  132. you. Note that all resizing process were made with high quality filters, and videos were stored
  133. using lossless codec. After having everything ready, I encoded them using VBR, what have a much
  134. better quality/size ratio. The results? High quality videos. I could say they got better than the
  135. original videos of Sonic Adventure, but instead, I will just challenge you to watch the videos and
  136. say if you think they were downsampled or not.
  137. Additionally, file order is the same of the original game (some optimizations were made later).
  138. High quality music, better quality videos, better loadings... enjoy one more fantastic release by
  139. DCRES!
  140. Features of my release:
  141. - Not corrupted files at all, it was made with GD dump files.
  142. - Music monoized with high quality.
  143. - Videos are better than in the original GD! Check them.
  144. - Used GD file order, it means faster loadings and less Dreamcast reader noise.
  145. - Selfboot.
  146. About the game:
  147. - It has VGA Box support.
  148. Other comments:
  149. - "Extras" folder in the pack contains some extra (duh!) stuff, including the two tracks that were
  150. ripped and converted to MP3 and wallpapers included in the CD part of GD.
  151. - Release comes with manual (of american version).
