Demul experiences?

by fastbilly1 Mon Jun 04, 2012 5:05 pm

Anyone else play with Demul? I always thought it was a straight Dreamcast emulator until Friday night when I discovered it plays Alien Front:

Being that Alien Front was a favorite of mine on the Dreamcast Online, I downloaded the game, obtained a Naomi rom, and after a bit of time configuring it spent several hours destroying the human menace. After Alien Front (which had some graphical bugs but worked well), I loaded up Monkey Ball and it had some weird slowdown issues. It was still playable, just not smooth like on the cube. After 20 levels of Monkey Ball (being a cube launch title I got really good at it), I loaded up a game that they said did not work at all - Outtrigger. Low and behold it was playable, but had some goofy issues.

I need to experiment with it more but it looks like it might be able to play multiplayer Alien Front, Daytona, SCUD racer, and Outtrigger. Which means, I need four cabs...Daytona and Alien Front are two of my favorite modernish arcade games.

Anyone else have experiences with it? Apparently it runs Atomiswave games.

The main problem with Naomi games is input emulation.. something which isn't being actively worked on.

What do you mean? Ive given a dozen or so Naomi games a run and havent had any terrible issues with it. Granted you have to set your controls in the emulator THEN see if they goofed up anything in the game settings - Alien Front is notorious for this in making your vehicles default to going right.

What I meant was that games with funky controls aren't supported.
