CDI collection of Katana SDK demos to play on your Dreamcast

Post#1 » Thu May 30, 2019 2:19 pm

Hey guys, as I am sure many of you know by now, AssemblerGames is closing down in 29 days. I was contacted there by a user named accel99 to spread his collection of SDK demos around on the net so they are easier to find. I have also uploaded them to Mega, so if his original Mediafire link goes down there is a backup of this. I will just copy and post verbatim what he said to me on Assembler below.

There quite a few cdi images here so ill explain some to save you time. Most of the demos while playing give an explanation of how the effects were made on a technical level ( very useful for programmers). Dont remember if its d-pad to access this explanations. I think you might some of these pretty cool. Let me know what you thought of it. file is pretty small btw.

Cheapbumpmapping - a demo of fast method bumpmapping
dracofly - a dragonfly with full screen motionblur applied
flare1 - lensflare demo that reacts to being obscured
Fortune - demo overlaying playing cards on top of each other as a way to show 1.1 gigapixel fill rate.

I wish there was a video of these Katana SDK demos on YouTube to watch. It would certainly help accel99 in his goal of popularizing these demos!

They aren't on a single cdi?

Can I recommend accell99 to check out the ginsu folder?

Unfortunately not, they are all single .cdi's.I agree that it would be great in this case if all were on 1 image.
