    Hi all !

    I thought I already had a account on this forum, as I'm going here to see news sometimes since some years, but I can't find it.
    Well, so, basically, a french TV I'm watching called "Nolife" decided to create a new program where they show some old archives they have. The program may be a little bit strange at first, this is some old footage with just a little bit of editing. But after watching it, it's like watching some old E3 footage on Youtube, but with way better quality, and chapters to find what you want to see. I really liked it.
    Well, anyway, this first episode is based on Japan Amusement Expo 2004, which is a arcade expo taking place in Japan (and the new edition is this week end !). The interesting thing is that they said that they found some footage from this Chicago 1929 game, which is, after a little bit of searching, a unreleased Atomiswave game.
    You can watch this here @ 9:24.

    But there is also another game that I didn't succeed to find on Internet :
    So, they said they also found a unnamed game on the "Amusement Business Communications" stand (@ 24:11 on the same link). The strange thing is that the ABC company no longer exists, apparently. And the game seems to be a online concept, as there is also a computer next to the arcade cabinet, playing the same game, at the same level. I tried to find things about this game, nothing for now. So I thought you guys may have some info about this. I also send a mail to Unseen64, as I'm also going on their website sometimes.

    Well, that's it. Thanks ! ;-)

    Cool! Kinda looks like if Spirit of Speed had a baby with crazy taxi or demolition racer. Would have been a cool dreamcast title.

    Is there any way to somebody to try to port Atomiswve games to DC? As i have learned, DC and Atomiswave sports the same architecture.

    don't think there is easy way for doing this, AW games often stream game data from cartridge, music/sounds almost constantly, and cartridge access is MUCH faster than reading from CD/GD. so significant game modification/rewrite (after a lot of reverse engineering) will be required.

    ^Makes me wonder about the read speed of the new plug-in GDrom emulator interfaces and whether emulation of the atomiswave's cartridge interface could be done that way.

    Yup, I also saw this video during the researches, it seems that the video from Nolife shows some different paths of the game.
    Personally, the games reminds me a little bit of Runabout, a crazy car game with a lot of destruction.

    About ABC, I think I succeed to find their (old ?) blog : http://abcinformation.blog37.fc2.com/
    So I don't really know if this means that the company is always in activity. Apparently there is no more posts since 2011, but I can't read Japanese so I'm not sure.
