Capcom (back) Online

The Dreamcast Junkyard recently suffered from 'technical difficulties' on a scale not seen since the UNSC Pillar of Autumn (left) went down under fire from Covenant forces. Similarly, the 'Yard took heavy losses on the personnel front, but under my supreme guidance full operational ability has been restored. Thankfully, I wasn't abducted like that blithering idiot Capt Keys and subjected to a full cavity search and around the clock anal probage.

The problem was due to my 'template' - the bit with all the HTML for the blog - simply deleting half of itself for no apparent reason. According to Blogger's help forums, it's quite a common occurance, so I recommend that other blogger users copy and paste their current 'template' into a Microsoft Word document so that if it ever happens agin, you can just paste it back into the HTML window.

In other, more important news you can now read my review of crusty shoot 'em up Charge 'N Blast here.

Oh yeah, forgot about this - a few posts ago I mentioned that I was in the process of downloading what promised to be a Sega Saturn emulator for the Dreamcast. I don't even know why I bothered giving it the time of day because I know there isn't a fully functioning Saturn emulator avilible as yet, let alone one that will play commercial games. It took me 3 days (on and off) to download this 'Saturn Boot Disk' off limewire and when I burnt it onto a CD and tried to run it, the DC just went to the dreaded CD Player screen. Not one to be defeated easily, I tried to start it using the RadQuake booter to no avail, and also tried the Utopia disk. Strangely, the Utopia disk started to load something, but then the floating Reindeer (you'll know what I'm talking about if you've used Utopia before) went a bit wired and a picture of what appeared to be two semi-naked men in a bathroom appeared...I'm not making this up! Alas, the 'Saturn' disk didn't do anything else, but I'm very intrigued as to what it is I have actually downloaded. The case will remain open (for now) pending further investigation...

To round off this info burst, go have a look at the newest entrant into the world of Sega related blogs, Sega Freaks. It's compiled by The Gagaman, a regular commentor on the 'Yard and all round Sega nut (according to unconfirmed reports, The Gagaman has leased a black hole from the Imperial Galactic Council of Cleethorpes in order to store his Sega Collection in). Check it out, Y'all - it's the shiz-nay. Cough.

Yep, after every few new posts I copy paste mine back onto word. Maybe a back-up blog woulden't be a bad idea either, in case something unexpected happens...

The Utopia disc, when itloads a disc, always pops up with the image of which the Dreamcast's CD player will show (try it with some games), and if I remember rightly, there was a pirate games disturbor that uses that sem-naked man picture for all their releases. The image is actually from an advery for Virtua Striker 2, which involved the 'game' of whipping mates with towels. Yeah..the British ads sucked.

Also, thanks for the plug =D
