    Default Chanka Compatibility List

    There have been reports that legal software does not work with Chanka at all in this stage of development and since CD or DVD drives can't read GD ROMs it seems that there's no legal use for Chanka or a possiblity to help out with testing if you wanna help its evolution.[br][br]But that might not be correct: There are several releases that use CDs instead of GDs and that makes them testable with Chanka. [br][br]Feet of Fury[br]Bleem!cast for Metal Gear Solid, Gran Turismo 2, Tekken 3[br]Inhabitants[br]Maquipai[br]several apps like VCD and MP3 player[br][br]az_bont posted this statement some time ago:[br][br]"A quick scan of DCHomebrew.org reveals 69 original brews, 56 ported brews, 35 software brews, 3 brew loaders and 49 demo brews, totalling a massive 212 pieces of homebrew code available for download on that one site. And that's not even taking the countless KOS examples. [br][br]We've already heard examples of several pieces of homebrew running, and that's just from a few people checking a handful of stuff each. There are probably dozens of pieces of homebrew for the Dreamcast playable on this emulator."[br][br]One game that has been reported to work by Vorrtexx is Battery by Jimbo, but there might be a lot more... So let's collect some reports on those releases and reopen DCEmu's Chanka compatibility list.[br][br]The next release of Chanka hopefully will allow the developers that are working on software for our beloved Dreamcast to use Chanka as a development tool.[br][br]A full list with complete bug reports will help the authors of Chanka to improve this impressive emulator in the future.[br][br]

    Doesn't get past this loading screen.

    Some earlier reports:

    Well here's my Homebrew test list so far:

    Giana Return - Didn't work, will try again
    Revolver - Boots to Menu, when loading game just stops at loading screen. Loads fully with modifications.
    DCastle - Boots to menu, runs very smooth, stops after starting game.
    KOS Tsunami Banner Example - Works fine
    KOS PVR Plasma Example - Works Fine.
    KOS Parallax Bubbles Example - Works Fine.
    Melchoir - Didn't Work.
    Alice - Keeps Rebooting on Me, may of burned it wrong.
    Battery - Works Fine

    Even if the modem is not emulated, Dreamkey 3 runs fine.
    LinuxDC seems to hang up after the kernel loading

    @Wraggster: Thanx, let's hope it'll work...

    Stuff one could test would be homebrew games (Beats of Rage etc), ports (nxDoom, QuakeDC etc), emulators (NesterDC, DreamSNES etc), compilations (DCTonic etc) and apps (DCevolution DCEBook "Alice in Wonderland", VMUTool etc)

    That's nice!

    @MetaFox: Bad news, but they'll recognize our reports, I am sure with that!
    Some of our recent projects over at www.dcevo.com used single progs and apps such as the DCEBook project or GNUBoy GBSPlay
