  20. Dreamcast Resurrection - 2009 (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.

  34. The Ring: Terror's Realm (NTSC-U)
  35. ---------------------------------
  36. Ripped: Nothing.
  37. Downsampled: Videos (almost no quality loss, read below).
  38. Source: GD dump and Echelon's release (oRARs).
  39. Videos were encoded in a very high bitrate, so I have re-encoded them in a lower bitrate (although
  40. a still high bitrate) in VBR so I could get enough space. There is no significant difference
  41. between original and re-encoded videos. Additionally, audio of videos got untouched.
  42. This game was refusing to work with the common hacking techniques, probably because of some kind of
  43. protection, so I got Echelon's main binary, removed their intro and used it instead. As always,
  44. these guys made a great job.
  45. File order was optimized, but I still was hearing too much reader's movement. Then I found out that
  46. like other games, this one keeps checking second session start for some reason. I tried splitting
  47. files in both sessions moving second session ahead in the disc and things got much better. Loading
  48. times must be better now.
  49. Oh, about VGA-Box, the support was originally turned off. I tried enabling it and the game booted.
  50. However, there was no image output, so unfortunately you can't play this one using VGA-Box.
  51. Enjoy this strange but decent game.
  52. Features of my release:
  53. - Not corrupted files at all, it was made with GD dump files and Echelon's oRARs.
  54. - Dummied for 700mb CDs, it means faster loading times.
  55. - Used custom optimized file order. It means faster loadings and less Dreamcast reader noise.
  56. - Used another optimization technique. It also helps loading times and reader's movement.
  57. - Selfboot.
  58. About the game:
  59. - It does NOT have VGA Box support.
  60. Other comments:
  61. - "Extras" folder in the pack contains some useless stuff.
  62. - Release comes with covers.
