now free to download and burn to a CD-R for playing in a Dreamcast. Naturally, that's exactly what I did...
TI-Nspire graphic calculators. I downloaded the CDI file, burnt it to a disc and popped it in my Dreamcast, and then spent a good half hour messing about in this wonderful homage to Mojang's world builder.
Controls take a little getting used to, but once sussed Crafti is about as close to the real Minecraft as you're likely to get on a Dreamcast. Movement is handled through the d-pad, looking on the analogue and the face buttons allow you to place or erase blocks in the world. You can also jump and there's an action button for opening doors and pressing switches. Pressing start brings up a block menu and you can assign different materials to your inventory at the bottom of the screen.
Creeper), but as a proof of concept this is pretty impressive work. I have to admit that I'm not the biggest fan of Minecraft and my experience with the genuine article doesn't really extend beyond the one time I played the Xbox 360 version for about an hour back in around 2013. That said, even with this limited experience I knew what kinds of things I should be able to do, so after 10 minutes playing with Crafti I had already built myself a nice little house, complete with a fireplace and a bookshelf full of leather-bound books. The smell of rich mahogany also wafted through the structure. Apologies for the pixellated screenshots here - the game wouldn't work properly on my Elgato so I was forced to use an S-Video capture thing and the image quality isn't the best.
Below you'll find a short and sweet video of some gameplay recorded from my Dreamcast, using perhaps the shortest capture device in the known galaxy. My Elgato wouldn't work so I had to rely on the August USB capture dongle once again. Still, it's better than nothing and gives you an idea of how Crafti runs.
For further info and to grab the CDI file yourself, head over to the DCEmulation forum here. Also, thanks to bogglez himself for giving me the heads up on this.
