Counter-Strike DC Final 1.0

(borrowed your cover, gagaman, hope you don't mind :P)

Looks like Counter-Strike DC has finally reached its final stage of development. Here's what the guys behind it have to say:

This project has finally reached its final v.1.0 release.
You will find hours of Counter-Strike gameplay, now on Sega Dreamast.
This final release is now very stable, and is fully playable with a standard controller.

And for the record, this project was intended from the begining to be
a great single-player experience. So to answer with certainty,
online/multiplayer will never be possible on Dreamcast.

Standard half-life dc codes work from the menu, for example:
"Otis Loves Dreamcast" --> God mode
"Dreamcast Gives Firepower" --> Infinate ammo

Also, huge credit goes to original authors of the content that has
been borrowed with or without permission for this release

Looks good to me. You can download it here, and here's a gameplay video:

I made that cover for my copy that I recently burned. It's an amazingly slick port that almost feels like it could be a retail release (with the obvious exception of no multiplayer)and loads rather fast too.

Wow. I can't believe they actually finished this!

I can't wait to check this out.

I can only hope that that one person finishes "They Hunger" someday.

I have a noob question:
Why is there .r00, .r01, etc all containing seemingly the same file?

Animated AF said...

It's one file split up into a bunch of rars. You need them all to extract the full file.

That cover is cool but the game is much cooler!

Counter strike is a awesome FPS and is one of my best FPS shooters online.

Erm, I downloaded it but I'm not sure what to do next. What is the process for putting it only a disk that my DC will read? Do you just dump it onlt a cd and burn? or do you have to use a certain program? Yep, I'm a noob too...!

Tom Charnock said...

I tried pasting the files onto a CD-R in windows and then burning but my DC won't read it - just goes to the music screen. Fuck knows why there are so many random spelling mistakes in my last comment, btw!

Grab a program called Bootdreams, which is made specially for burning Dreamcast games and does all the work for you. Slap a CD in your drive, select the cdi, hit record and done!

C'mon, even I know how to do that.

Tom Charnock said...

Well, moomintroll, I bow to your superior knowledge. All I get, no matter which icon I try to burn with (discjuggler, nero, alcohol etc) is a message saying that it 'cannot find the main binary' and then displays a list of the contents of the Counterstrike folder. No matter which one I select, it just says 'filename is 4 characters too long.' Ah well, at least I got Neverball to work.

Animated AF said...

What's the counterstrike file you got like? You did extract the cdi from the first of all of those rar files right? If you e-mail I could help you out with it if you like.

Tom Charnock said...

Cheers GM - The thing I downloaded is the one with the covers in one file and then a list of files ending in .r00 etc. There didn't appear to be a .cdi file in there. No worries, I'll have another look and see if I can sort it out. These comments make me look like an incompetent imbecile, I'm sure!

I love the look of this, it's great to see something so impressive looking coming from the homebrew/mod/emu community. I need a copy of this game with the custom cover. Great post Nebacha! Great cover Gagaman(n)!

I got the DC to work with it, but at the starter console menu, it says to insert a controller when one already is in. Anyone know what's up with it?

None of these links work. Where can you get CS for DC?
