Skies of Arcadia ntsc/u(rip other than HYKAN and Talon)
« on: July 08, 2009, 01:51:12 AM »
Hi all!
I have a one, simple request. I searching for Skies Of Arcadia, but not ripped by HYKAN or Talon. Is there any other rip?? TuxTheWise - maybe you can made a fine rip of that game?? HYKAN rip is 4 99min cds, Talon is 6cd(sic!) - and it's not working. PAL echlon rip is fine but it doesn't support VGA. They could get it on 2 normal disks so you can do this too :D It's a big fail that there is no normal rip for one of the best dreamcast game.
Please, i'm begging you  ;)

Welcome to Segahub. :)

Give this a go, you probably need the original Echelon images though (not a repack).

Hi again!
I've checked that thing few days ago and this is a patch for ntsc-u version that allow to play this game on pal console with scart cable.
Only ntsc version is working on vga cable(pal it's not patchable). And there is no echelon-like ntsc rip(they made it on 2 cds).
That game is a masterpiece. 5th best dreamcast game on Metacritic.

Hmmm... lame.

Depending on funds you could always buy the original, I suspect it will retain its value but I don't know of any other rips... which isn't to say they don't exist.

I,ve tried to rip it myself. But it's not working very well... Ok, it's not working at all :) Tried making split release same as hykan, but for 700MB discs. I couldn't find any good tutorial about ripping dc game(only about ripping gd via BBA, but i have a GD dump so i don't need it). Is there anyone could provide tutorial or even a small hint??

I no longer have it. My friend borrow  me version of skies of arcadia that he had. It was on 6 discs. He didn't know what rip is it. I've found info that talon rip was 6 cd. But my freind version isn't selfboot, so i really don't know what it is(it could be some earl russian rip, they didn't made games self boot because they were selling Utopia(sic!) - that is how dreamcast piracy look in my country :) ). Maybe i will borrow it again so i could provide it to you. And from what i know this rip is unplayable(it,s freezing in particular moments).

Is the NTSC-U version? I can't seem to find a rip of this one anywhere except for the 99minute CD-r version. If I can't find a good rip or no one is willing to. I'll probably just end up buying a copy. I've heard good things about it so I'm sure it's worth the $25-%30 on eBay when it pops up. :D

*Edit* Looks like there are missing rars :(

It's a fantastic game, surprisingly still holds up very well against modern consoles, except for the gratuitous random battles. I haven't checked, but the gamecube port might be cheaper if your interested in that.

Yeah, I've heard great things about it! I'm more interested in the Dreamcast version since I'm a huge Dreamcast fan!
