As I said in my previous post, I don't have much time to work on game patches or the next version of my custom bios. That though does not necessarily mean I can't quickly talk about what I worked on few weeks ago! I have a couple of game patches ready or almost ready and today I'm releasing an easy one. As usual, it is a 60Hz/VGA patch that you need to apply to the boot file (1ST_READ.BIN). Snow Surfers is one of those games that which have a specific name for each region: Snow Surfers in Europe, Rippin' Riders Snowboarding in the US and Cool Boarders Burrrn! in Japan. Not particularly helpful but funny though. It was one of the Dreamcast launch titles, at least in Europe. It is a pretty good game and playable up to 4 players.
Next and last point: custom bios. In addition to small patches that ease the Dreamcast's use, the next version of my custom bios will also embed two new features. One can easily be guessed from the pic below. For the other one, I let you imagine or wait, depending on your mood. I know that it looks a bit shitty but I need really more time to understand how I can re-use the internal graphics. (Time that of course I don't have...)
