    I was thinking about trying to run computer games on a Dreamcast. Particularily ES3: Morrowind. I was thinking about using a VGA box to connect the DC and the computer and running games off the computers harddrive. I was wondering if this would be possible, and why do consoles run so fast with slow hardware? Plz help. Any imput would be appreciated. The DC specs are:
    Arm 200MHz processor
    16 MBs of ram
    800+ M\sec. bandwith

    haha doesnt work like that, the console bios is specifically used for running games and such, you pc is hardwired to do everything, and it does everything, which slows it down. the dc would have to emulate the game, which..with its specs, and not running it natively, would slow the game down even more. it wouldnt work. and even if it did, it'd be really really slow

    Lol :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    Technically it could be possible. However you wouldn't be able to run barely anything. Lol check out this 1337 UT2K3 on my 1337 Dreamcastz0rs. A whole .0232323446 frames per second... AHAHAHAAHAHAHAAH... Lol I am like ****ting myself right now, 200 mhz processor w/ no modern optimizations... 16 megabytes of ram, you wouldn't even be able to run windows, let alone emulate it, or run a 'wine'like application from an alternative OS. Lol this is probably the funniest thing I have hear in a while. Sorry I am laughing @ you expense, but you should really use the thing in your noggin before you post this senseless :spam:

    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.
