Virtua Striker 2 v.2000.1 [NTSC-U] [DCHQ] [CDI]
« on: September 03, 2010, 04:18:57 AM »
DCHQ(Dreamcast High Quality)


Story

Virtua Striker 2 is as simple as a soccer game can get, and it's a soccer game that, against all reason,
is incredibly popular in Japanese arcades. Practically as popular as Virtua Fighter and Virtual On in its
country of origin, Virtua Striker has somehow managed to forge itself a devoted following, making this one
of the more highly anticipated titles to come to the Dreamcast. While Sega would probably like to think of
Virtua Striker 2 in the same breath as games like NFL Blitz or NBA Showtime, due to their extreme playability,
this is absolutely not the case. Virtua Striker 2 was designed to provide a stadium-like sensation, along with
all that implies. Not since Namco's Libero Grande have you ever had the sensation of being on the field as much
as you do in VS 2. What's significant is that a game like this was only recently made possible due to the
Dreamcast's powerful hardware. However, that doesn't save this game from being a clunker. The game is incredibly
beautiful, but in the gameplay, where it counts, the game falls miserably short.

-I did download DCRES version  and has not worked in my dreamcast, then I did this release.

About It:
Source: GD dump files
Downsampled: Nothing
Ripped: Nothing

-Dummy file added and the files were optimized the best possible, It means faster loadings and less Dreamcast reader
noise.
-Selfboot.

It recognizes the disc, shows S*GA screen and then reboots? Or it doesn't recognize the disc? What region is your console of?

Hey thux  I extract data from a file P04(used in Maken x), there is PSB files inside, what is this? maybe pinacle sound back?Echelon downsample it.

Extract P04? Usually .P04 files are some ADPCM format (the P04 indicates it has 4 bits per sample). Usually it's raw Yam*ha ADPCM, but if it's stereo the block size of each channel varies from game to game.

it doesn't recognize the disc, my console is NTSC-U (american).
I used extract25.exe to extract P04 file and I obtained 2 files PSB and many txt files, 1 file has ~260 MB and the other has ~60 MB.

If it doesn't recognize the disc, it means that something went wrong during the recording. I'm pretty sure the releases are alright, it's the first complaining I receive so far about them.

About these P04, if they're pack files, I've never heard about this format.

Some kalisto releases don't work too, must be some incompatibility with my console.Evolution recognize but stay in black screen after boot, I tried recording many times with different configurations.I have heard say that the best model is that with the number of review 2, my console is number 1 HKT - 3020.
DCRES releases is my favorite, I have all your releases, is a pretty work.

You don't know how downsample this file(P04)?
