DCHQ(Dreamcast High Quality)



Story

A sequel featuring improved graphics and more complex gameplay, Railroad Tycoon II, was published by Gathering of Developers in 1998 after PopTop Software acquired rights to the name from Microprose, Sid Meier's original company which he himself left a year earlier to form Firaxis.
Some features of the first version are missing in this sequel, such as the ability to build tunnels and signal towers, but many new possibilities were added, such as the ability to have unlimited money, trains, and train routes, much better control of routes, dozens of new maps, and the ability to create and modify scenarios and maps.
The Dreamcast version was in full 3D.
There are dozens of new scenarios to play including ones in Africa, North America, Germany, the Swiss Alps, the jungles of South America, and even several places around the world in a possible future where Earth's oceans have risen. Most of the ones in Railroad Tycoon 1 are in Railroad Tycoon 2. There are also many more first and second century campaigns to choose from than in Railroad Tycoon 1.

About It:
Source: GD dump files
Downsampled: Nothing
Ripped: Nothing
Selfboot: Yes
VGA Box: Yes

What is new?
-New optimazation mode, improve faster loadings and less Dreamcast reader noise.

Optimization
-A lot of people talk about optimization, is necessary to know the game files for perfect optimization, was the lesson I learned when I made the repacked version of the D2.
I lose many CDs learning about files and reading order, but I got an excellent result.

Notes:
-The game has videos of low quality, this is normal.
-in the version made by Kalisto, the first track(in the center of the cd) is the game and the other are cdda tracks, this is bad! I put the tracks in correct order, the game is the last track.
Game has been dummied with a CDDA track (Track01),It pushes all the data (including the CDDA tracks) to end of the disc, so reader's movement has been reduced a lot.Of course all the CDDA tracks are working.
-I put the files in the same order of GD.

Features of my releases:
-Dummy file added and the files were optimized the best possible, It means faster loadings and less Dreamcast reader noise.
-Selfboot.
-VGA Box support.
-Comes with covers, manual and extras.

Compare with the version of Kalisto and note a great difference.Enjoy!

I've never actually used nulldc.... oddly enough I use an actual dreamcast to run games.   Thanks again for the upload.

P.S. Tested and works great!!
