  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. Wacky Races (NTSC-U)
  35. --------------------
  36. Ripped: Nothing (read the notes below).
  37. Downsampled: Nothing.
  38. Source: Kalisto's release (oRARs) and PAL GD dump.
  39. ==========
  41. ==========
  42. This NTSC-U version of the game has three languages: English, French and Spanish, but there is no
  43. language selector inside the game. The language is selected according to the configuration of your
  44. Dreamcast BIOS. There are two images, use the correct one or your game will be unplayable:
  45. * Wacky Races (French, Spanish) - DCRES.cdi -> If your BIOS is configured as French or Spanish.
  46. * Wacky Races (English) - DCRES.cdi -> If your BIOS is configured to any other language.

  50. I was having some trouble optimizing this game because a lot of data is streamed at the same time.
  51. Loading times has music playing, and in the game both music and voices are streamed on-the-fly. It
  52. was causing a lot of laser movement. Additionally, there were 3 voices packs for each language of
  53. around 70mb each. Well, I have arranged file order to make streaming as easy as possible. The
  54. result got very acceptable (mainly if you compare with original Kalisto's disc), but reader noise
  55. was still bothering. So I decided splitting the files, and the result got great. English disc got
  56. great. The other disc got very nice. If you compare them to the original Kalisto's release, you'll
  57. notice a great change. If you have ever played this game, you'll definitely want to grab this
  58. release now!
  59. I tried making a PAL release of this game, but it only boots on 50hz (it does let you change
  60. frequency to 60hz, but only on options menu) so I had to use NTSC-U. As I couldn't find the NTSC-U
  61. GD dump of this game, I used Kalisto's release.
  62. Oh, and this game will work nice on PAL consoles and will already boot in 60hz.
  63. Have fun with another quality release.
  64. Features of my release:
  65. - Not corrupted files at all, it was made with Kalisto's oRARs.
  66. - Used custom DCRES optimization techniques. It means faster loadings and less Dreamcast reader
  67. noise.
  68. - Selfboot.
  69. About the game:
  70. - It has VGA Box support.
  71. Other comments:
  72. - "Extras" folder in the pack contains some useless stuff.
  73. - Release comes with covers.
