    I've seen the videos on youtube and as far as I know it was only conceived as a tech demo and never a commercial game.

    But, did any of those demos got a release?

    Have it been released and can be tested on real hardware?

    never saw any release, but the demos were on a prototype devkit, Dreamcast Development Kit Set 2.1 - NEC ARC1A PowerVR.

    the demo was made by core design, so try to find someone who worked there, or the devkit.

    i wonder if there is a demo of daytona usa 2, it was meant to be released on dreamcast too.

    and images from saturn version of scud race.

    the page with the scud race videos

    If I remember correctly, the SET 2 pci card did not contain the equivalent of a full dreamcast, but only the graphics part... meaning that the CPU of the pc would do the work the SH-4 would do in later revisions...
    So to make it work on a SH-4 & a DC, a lot of rework would have to be done... and they didn't give the sources of the demo...

    i would love to find more tech demos for systems that will run on a real system,

    i remember one for DC called tower of babel that looked cool.

    I had the xda kit for my modded xbox. i liked playing with the demos on there like the shark, teddy bears, teapots etc...

    I got the sdk for ps3 hoping i could find some demos to play on my jb ps3 . did not find any :(

    i still get a kick out of the psx tech demo that was released with systems in the usa.

    I almost bet the farm the dino demo was prerendered video the 1st few sec i saw it.

    The 40% was the SET4, which contained an early version of the SH4 cpu.

    In SET2, you basically had a powervr card and the rest was emulated on the pc.

    SET5 introduced audio & midi output, punchthrough vertex format (improving translucency sorting by 4x), and contained the CLX2 graphics chip and an SH-4 CPU. SET5 was the first set to have the performance equivalent to a Dreamcast.

    I could swear this Scud Race tech/rolling demo was leaked some time ago.

    part of a cd with various system tests (memory tests, renders, etc)

    Hey! Sorry pato, I forgot this thread.

    I don't planned release it, at least at the moment.

    I want to take some screenshots and videos when I can.

    Could these be it?

    Katana SDK DREAMON Sample
    Katana SDK GINSU Sample
    Katana SDK SoakTest
    Katana SDK Web Browsers

    They were uploaded by Smith, but he got his panties in a wad with some members in the DC community, so he removed all his uploads. I am sure you could search for them over at Undergroundgamer and they should be there.

    it think it came from SDKs r9 and r10, in both you can find the Ginsu folder in samples folder, in r10 the dreamon and soaktest, i couldn´t run the soak test.

    looks like smith did make it because there was 1st_read bin in these samples, ginsu for example have one.

    so scud race tech demos would be found in set 2 sdk, possibly katana sdk r2.

    Ryo, are you using a Set 2 to run the demo? Is the one you found "scud.elf" (5,473,541 bytes) and if so, what year does it say (you'll have to open it as a text document or view it in a hex editor). I found one that says 07/07/1998. Going by the date, I think it may have been updated to work on a Set 4 unit, but it definitely doesn't work on a Set 5.24.

    Is Set 2 really difficult for find?
