    Ooh, please post some rips of the videos !! I'm sure Obelisk was released here in Japan by Sunsoft. I'm sure I've seen it. The Dezeamon 2 mouse pack was also released I'm sure of it. I actually have a special game made using Dezeamon 2 on the Saturn. I'll have to grab a few screen shots of it for this section.

    Yeah I would but because PAL VCR's have compatibility for NTSC tapes but output a PAL 60 signal, which isn't the same as a true NTSC signal my capture card doesn't pick it up right. (capture card with PAL 60 signal compatibility are VERY hard to come by..they told me).

    I'm looking into the possibilities of creating a DVD with roughly 10 SEGA VHS tapes on it.
    There's some great footage on these things..

    Pretty sure my BT848 based card works with pal 60 fine over composite - have played gamecube in 60Hz mode (true pal-60 or NTSC?) on it. That and Dscaler make a perfect combination - you can choose pretty much any format from around the world and it works with it

    I recal that was the 'chip series' that worked. You have SVIDEO in I presume?

    Sounds to me like Mass Destruction.

    I went into CEX all the time, and I can definately say they have NEVER had Return Fire on Saturn. Nor has any other shop.

    It would most likely have had a cover similar to the PSX version, or the original.

    Mine doesn't, but I'm sure there is one based on that chip that does

    Well not too much news but I'll pick up a chipped Saturn to run DD2 on within a month. Hopefully it'll run so I'll be able to do some media.

    Anyone else got some other interesting stuff?

    looking forward to seeing that version of DD2. DD1 on the Saturn is a bloody awful conversion of a bloody awful game if you ask me. The floors on it seem to be made from some poor effort mode 7 effect.

    Yeah it was rather dissapointing. Especially the lack of the link-up mode, because that was great fun in the PSX version.

    From memory, there were some early work-in-progress screenshots of the first Destruction Derby printed in the UK official Saturn magazine that lacked floor textures in the Bowl arena, so it's possible these were indeed a Mode 7-style effect "thrown in" at the very last minute (there's no doubting this game in its Saturn guise was clearly a rush job). However, like most other later PS-to-Saturn conversions, it seems as if the sequel would have been a lot more faithful to the original. Let's hope somebody can get that prototype working so that we can all find out for certain...

    Hmm DD2 seems to need the PSY-Q to proceed beyond the placeholder frontend. It's possible that it will work on a real Saturn but I doubt it. That means I'll have the dive deep into the contents of the discs...

    For now, enjoy some shots of 'The Tick'. A cancelled 1996 release.

    Wow, I remember playing the Tick on the SNES. It was crap on that and looks crap on the Saturn. Still, great to see shots of something I've never seen before. How does it play SegaFreak_NL?

    Even in the early stages it was looking good. Virtua Cop 1 was the first thing that really showed the Saturn could do good 3D without and PSX warping textures :lol: It's a realy shame the quality never stayed that high through out it's life :(
