Thanks for helping us decide on how to plan (avoid) semi-public beta testing
fyi, that build is nearly useless. This one would have made a much better leak -- youtube.com/watch?v=hJymbl690yU
*and damn, that captcha thing, its getting hard to read.
Seems like he plans to avoid semi public beta as in there will be more builds to come.
He posted this on Aug 8 in regard to the leak in a different thread

So, wait a bit longer, its gonna be worth it, okay ?
(fyi, I built that apk)
have a nice day~
Think he just busy in real life and wants to release a non broken emulator time be damned. Good for him getting this far obviously its very far along. The leaked app was nice to see run on my xperia faster then I thought, lots of of work went into it and obviously cant be for nothing. Maybe he patiently waiting on better tech like the a15 processor.(30% faster then a9 in GsIII)
Theoretically he wouldn't need much faster tech though, right? The S2 is quite a bit better than our Play but was seen running Shenmue at 102% speed a year or two ago albeit with some graphical glitches. I sincerely hope that this extra time spent will lead to an emulator that is workable on our Play even if it does suffer a bit of slowdown. All I'm getting at is faster tech wouldn't be a legitimate reason for the long development cycle considering the emulator worked quite well on a device that most current hardware attempts to mimic due to its success. I could certainly see real life getting in the way as you mention along with the incredible difficulty of doing what he is doing to make this emulator work.
Anyways, hate to be a buzz kill but besides Shenmue 1+2 I can't see myself using a DC emulator much unless it worked flawlessly on the Play. I love the DC for its excellent shmups and fighters and those games would completely blow with any slowdown. On my T-Mobile Dash 3g I could emulate SNES quite well but would stick to RPG's since the slight slowdown would ruin any action oriented game but (and the couple guys I know on here who are big SoA fans will kill me for this ) I don't think the Dreamcast has any truly great RPG's. SoA has the worst random battle mechanics I've ever seen in an RPG since most battles despite being incredibly frequent and relatively cumbersome deal with enemies who are not challenging and give nearly no experience points. Evolution is a fun game but really is nothing more than a big old grindfest; at least it is upfront about that and has a pretty entertaining battle system. Grandia 2 has one of the best battle mechanics I've ever seen put in to some of the worst dungeons I've ever seen and I also never felt challenged by the game's difficulty.
There are lots of great games on DC. Taxi, Jet Set Radio, best of the best wrestling gamr ever - Fire Pro Wrestling, best game about Spawn, Senmue 1&2, great sports games from 2K and many more!
Hmm... Is anybody on this forum that have contact with authors of this emu? Real authors? Mayby some donations will help?

Ohh I couldn't agree more. The Dreamcast is my favorite system of all time and I have one on my desk right next to my keyboard along with 4 more in the closet (someone once scared the **** out of me by saying all the old consoles will eventually die out within our lifetimes) . I just don't feel that RPG's (generally the only genre playable on a non-perfect emulator) are anywhere near its strong suit. Btw, just because I'm talking about my DC love, I have a Panther flight/fps stick, an official arcade stick, 5 light guns, a vga adapter, PAL shenmue 2, and a bunch of other neat goodies.
I won't be taking lessons of what to post or not to post from you, thanks As I said, if you don't like it, move along...
it says nonsense, if you know nothing ...
I have an alpha of Sega Dreamcast emulator on my Xperia Play:
Overclock to 2 GHz. (Super stable and very low temperature after playing hours)
Governor (Smartass v2 & SIO Scheduler)
Undervolting (-100 mv)
With NXT Rom v1.3 (Light Edition)
Lupus Gingerbread Kernel v4.
And punctuation in AnTuTu Benchmark 5200.
And I walk emulator apk great.
The only thing that is still no sound ..
Hey Crazy Taxy and also tested and are 80% SoulCalibur So playable. I do not understand your negative comment.
My point of view is that the leak is actually greatly benefiting the public perception of the emulator and its developers. It has given people a taste of what is to come. The build is good enough to get everyone hooked and excited/spreading the word for the official release, but not good enough for people to be content with the alpha. It is very addicting! I have not touched any other emulators since the leak...
Before the leak, many people (myself included) thought the few youtube videos of it were a big hoax and that it was vaporware! Boy was I proven wrong...and now that nulldce will shortly be in the android community limelight (just wait until the news spreads), it is the developer's opportunity to open a blog posting progress updates and more test videos, making announcements, etc that will lead up to a successful google play/slideme launch. And a lot of well-deserved, hard-earned money.
All of my friends I have showed this alpha build to were amazed that dreamcast emulation on a phone was even possible in the first place. They looked right through the bits of lag and graphical glitches and told me it runs better than they expected it to. It is a leaked alpha build after all...It should in no way hurt the public's perception of those making the app because it is a work in progress. It should be treated as teaser, and anyone who does otherwise is just stupid.
