Sega Smash Pack Volume 1 (Dreamcast)
|Sega Smash Pack Volume 1|
Sega Smash Pack Volume 1 is a compilation of several Genesis games, plus Sega Swirl and Virtua Cop 2. This was the only Sega Smash Pack released for the Dreamcast, and was released the same day Sega announced that they were resigning from the console market.
The programmer of the Genesis emulator, Gary Lake, included a file named ECHELON.TXT on the retail disc image which details the emulator used quite a bit:
To whomever releases this pack.. Let me give you a few bits of info: - I emulate a U.S. Genesis, including territory lock-out. - ".sga" files are standard Genesis/Megadrive ".bin" files renamed. - The emulator is looking for some parameters to be passed via Ginsu. If you don't know what that is, you'll figure it out: MDE_US.BIN ALTBEAST.SGA MODE2 SKIP0 SOUND0 MODE0 = standard, fastest video mode settings MODE1 = slower, supports some extra features MODE2 = slowest, includes window layers (used by some games) MODE4 = same as MODE0 with background skewing SKIP0 = no sprite skipping until maximum reached SKIP1 = moderate sprite skipping, used to prevent major slowdown SKIP2 = maximum sprites skipped SOUND0 = standard sound emulation SOUND1 = sound tempo increased And don't forget to pay your respects to Uncle Sonic. Sony just doesn't get it. - Gary
Echelon is a pirate group, and this was Gary's last game with Sega. Ostensibly, Gary had left instructions for Echelon to make a tool that allowed emulation of other Genesis games with a modified disc.
