Rooooooooooling Staaaaaaaaaart!

As requested - here's my gameplay video of Daytona USA for the Sega Saturn.

This arcade classic of 1994 was ported over to the Saturn in 1995. The Saturn being the wonderful console for arcade machine ports makes no exception in the case of Daytona USA.

The controls are a bit stiff and the emulation caused me to have to do several takes before one that was good, I had a lot of control problems, unfortunately. But after some practice I got used to them - no doubt because I am also using the keyboard.

A hint for anyone wanting to play this: Use a BIOS and to get sound effects to work you must run this game in the highest compatibility setting in SSF. If your computer can't handle it, you'll be disappointed ...

I ran this with SSF in the highest compatibility setting, recorded in FRAPS at it's native resolution.

I also enabled "V-sync Wait" so the framerate would remain as constant as possible (60 FPS/60Hz)

Additionally I enabled Direct3D and bilinear filtering to take some of the pixelation off - doesn't skip a beat!

I'm not the best player in the world, it would have helped if I wasn't using the keyboard and the emulator did screw up a few times on me causing me to go flying off into space...

Computer specifications:

Intel Core 2 Duo E8500, 3.16 GHz

6 GB of RAM

ATI Radeon HD 4650 1 GB version

An additional note to the fans of this game: I am also looking into Model 2 emulation to emulate the arcade system itself - look out for this in the future...

To anyone interested, my Sonic CD gameplay series will be starting back up again really soon: Look out for that!


When autoplay is enabled, a suggested video will automatically play next.
