    Been playing this alittle yesterday - surprised at just how well it runs and looks pretty decent!

    another half decent game the ill fated Dreamcast didn't get back in the day...


    Thanks to all involved with this release!

    I have been playing it too very good fun and plays very well so at a guess must have been pretty close to the last version that was worked on, it works with VGA too which makes it look nice and crisp. Shame about a few little bugs (floating points, presents landing inside the mail boxes etc) but to be honest I have seen some worse glitches in released games! The biggest drawback is no saves though. I will have to dig out the XBOX version and have a play on that one too.

    Just to mention: 2 Player does work! You start together and share the screen until you get too far apart and then it goes horizontal split screen excellent stuff I don't actually have any friends so can't really test a proper session!

    To access two player just make sure player 2 selects their character and presses A then player one selects their character presses A and then presses start. (obvious I know but hey)

    I don't have my DC keyboard here but someone should plug it in just in case it accesses some kind of de-bug menu like in Geist Force

    Now if someone can find Gun Valkyrie....

    Nothing official. You can see the "NTSC" from the XBOX cover (top right corner).

    And I really don't like the new logo of the game. It should be more like this one:

    Is there a way to convert this .cdi into a .gdi or even a .chd format?

    Im just wondering because I'd like to play it through the Reicast emulator for Android and it currently only supports .cdi and .gdi formats..

    Just think it would be awesome to play TJ&E3 on mobile.

    Thanks

    If it supports CDI why would you need to convert it?

    Nevermind, I just noticed it supports .cdi and is bugged still being in Alpha build (Probably just my phone). You can disregard my question.

    I think the current build is bugged on my Droid X2 but other games such as Sonic Adventure run flawlessly. I contacted the devs and let them know system specs and rom specs (CM10 ect) to help further development.

    When I try to load up TJ&E3 on it I get a black screen but just think its a bug for now.

    Thanks for the reply though =)


    Also sorry to sidetrack anything related to what this thread is intended for. Much respect

    Oh, yeah.. Didn't notice the NTSC bit.. ^^
    Agree with you on the logo, the one in the video is way better.
    Do you know if that logo is used in this build?

    I've tried it on my Galaxy S2 Skyrocket and I get the same black screen as you. As you said it's an alpha build and this game is an obscure prototype which probably doesn't even follow all the dreamcast software rules and regulations.

    The game just starts with the character select screen but no game title or intro. There are no cut scenes or graphical interludes of any type during the game that I have seen.

    Maybe ZakhooiTM can tell us if there were any other items on the Dev kit in terms of images etc that are not part of the game build?

    I'm having a lot of fun with this so far. Thanks again ZakhooiTM.

    I am working on a cover set in my spare time and will upload once it's finished.

    As usual BrAzE a nice looking cover. If you get chance could you make a PAL version?

    Also do you still sell the Propeller Arena USA mic box set?

    That looks great! I imagine the game would've shipped with a cover much like this, so it's very faithful in that regard. Looking forward to seeing how the rest of it turns out.
