New DCJ Video: VMU Wonders


There really hasn't been too many interesting videos of note popping up on Youtube recently, so I skipped Fideo Friday again this week. To make up for it, I've put together a new video of my own for the Dreamcast Junkyard Youtube. Remember that VMU Wonders article I wrote a while back? This is very much a compliment to that, featuring clips of dozens of VMU games, including instructions on how to get your hands on them all.

Absolutely excellent! Slickly and professionally produced video. Enlightening!

I have a VMU Tool disc... Is the Michale Jackson dancing on that?

Fuckin Hell, that's a great vid GM - I never knew the VM was capable of so much - some of it looks like monochrome FMV! Your vids do tend to be of pretty high quality - even down to the chromakey-style backgrounds. Maybe a career in film post production is something you should look at as well as animation. Top stuff!

I did no chroma keying in that...I just recorded footage of a VMU emulator on the Dream Explorer disc XD

I meant the 'cloudy' background in the vid.

Amazing video! I never knew there were so many games for the VMU.

Wow, so the VMU has a better game library than the PS3?


Kick ass.

I think the "buffy the vampire slayer" game looked the best.

Btw use a white stroke when using black letters like that.

A white outline on the letters at 1 pt will really make them stand out more.

This is assuming you are using a video editor that lets you outline your letters though.

Caleb: I'm not. It's crappy old Movie Maker. I have Premiere Pro, but that gobbles up my ram like no tomorrow.

Tom: I didn't do the clouds either. It's ALL the emulator.

Caleb said...

When I work rough like that I always use a large white type, dump it down and then do a slightly smaller black type so you still get the white outline.

WOW!!! I've just watched this again and frankly I'm stunned...

What an amazing montage of the potential of the VMU! Sony clearly were running scared when they brought out the frankly inferior "Pocket Station" PAH!

Amazing post...
