Yokosuka Photo Tour

Hey all, I've put together a little photo tour of Ryo's hometown Yokosuka. I spend a little too much time browsing google earth daily, and they have a really interesting feature which shows photos of an area displayed over the map. None of the pics here were taken by me, I've collected them from Panaramio, the website used in this feature, and arranged them in a similar way as presented in the game. The captions I use are my own interpretation of what it looks like and not necessarily what it actually is. Put on some music for the walk, & let's take it from the top.

Help induct Shenmue into The Library of Congress!

What is Shenmue?

Shenmue was a video game created by SEGA Programmer Yu Suzuki. It was developed during the production cycles of both the Sega Saturn and The Sega Dreamcast and it was released for the Sega Dreamcast in 2000.

Why is Shenmue Important?

It was notable for influencing many aspects of modern video games. It was influential in the use of Quick-Time Events, an aspect later seen in Resident Evil 4 and Heavy Rain. It was a game that preceeded Grand Theft Auto 3 in using full-3D free-roaming and real-life weather effects, and allows in-game interactions that weren't possible before. It was one of first true cinematic experiences in modern games, with an amazing story that attracts a huge fanbase in both Japan and The West during the time/

Despite the influence Shenmue had in modern gaming, the franchise remains dormant after the end of the Dreamcast and the lack of sales in Shenmue 2 in Xbox. It's been 14 years since the first Shenmue game and 12 years since Shenmue 2, and yet there has yet to be a re-release of the first 2 games in digital marketplaces (Steam/Playstation Network/XBox Live/GoG) nor has Shenmue 3 ever been announced by Sega or any developer/publisher in the last decade. And thus, we believe that Shenmue is in the risk of being forgotten and ignored by modern gaming culture.

And thus, we believe that Shenmue deserves to be preserved in order to remain remembered by the video game industry, and we believe that the best place for Shenmue to belong is in the Game Canon of United States The Library of Congress.

What is The Game Canon?

The Game Canon is a list of video games to be considered for preservation by the Library of Congress. The creation of this list is "an assertion that digital games have a cultural significance and a historical significance."

The current list of video games being preserved by the Library of Congress under The Game Canon is as followed:

-Star Raiders
-Super Mario Bros. 3
-Civilization I/II
-Warcraft series
-Sensible World of Soccer

And thus, we believe that Shenmue deserves to be on this list. Its influence on modern gaming makes it equal alonside Doom and Super Mario Brothers. And by having Shenmue on this list, it can finally bring back interest to the franchise by the gaming community, which will allow Sega to pick interest in remastering the game on modern digital marketplaces and allowing Yu Suzuki to continue production on Shenmue 3, where Ryo can finally face his revenge on Lan Di.....

White Tiger (Baihu Theme Remix)

Soooo, I've been working on this baby for a while on and off. I finally picked up on the project over the last few days and added the final touches. I can be a hell of a perfectionist, so I just needed to tell myself, "Just stop messing with it and release it as it is." I've worked on several Shenmue remixes in the past that my inner perfectionist never allowed to be finished. I plan to change that though and release more in the future, because Shenmue music deserves some professional sounding remixes.

Feedback, please!

Reliving the past with Shenmue and NullDC...

Finally I got nullDC working with my Trio Linker Plus II.
I couldn't believe how buttery smooth it was on PC.
Shenmue definitely plays better on the emulator.
When I was playing it on my DC the input of the controls were delayed and not a smooth. Man o man nullDC is great.
Here is a screenshot of it on 1080P on my PC.

Here's another picture of my Japanese DC region modded playing the Undubed version of Shenmue!

WIP: Ryo Hazuki mod for Sonic Generations (V1 released)

:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

It's been a long time since I wanted to try it. I never could make this 'cause I was always thinking this game is too much for my computer. But I was wrong. I have a good performance at 720p so I said "hey! Why not now?". I got all necesary tools todays and I supose I'll start the beta and 1st try this weekend or monday. Let's pray it works [-o<

Where the hell is Ryo travelling this time? \:D/

BONUS: I did not say anything about it but I make Ryo for GTA Vice City the other day. So if anybody want it, just ask.

PS: I still have to finish the sprites for Mushroom Kingdom but that fast to do and it makes me lazy.

Re: RELEASE: Shenmue Beta Disc 3 Exploration Mod V1

Woa I am enjoying it so far, I'll leave here some shoots I took.

Also I am the only one that preffers the "lower lod" textures of the Dojo instead of the normal ones?

Same happen to the beta maps, the textures unused are more colorful and diverse.

Thanks a lot for this shengoro86 =D>

Edit, If you want to acces ryos home, just go to sleep, use the debug menu to change the time, once Ryo wakes up, the house is accesible.

Re: RELEASE: Shenmue Beta Disc 3 Exploration Mod V1

Didn't think it deserves a new thread so I post it here.

Due to the way Shenmue I "backfaces" geometry it has been really dificult , if not impossible, to make geometry rips from certain areas/angles, so thanks to your mod I've been able to do some renders from angles I've allways wanted to. :D

This game deserves an HD version asap. :cry:

Re: Shenmue special scenes and other videos

Here are the alternate breakout scenes during the part where Ryo and Ren are locked up by the Yellow Heads.
They may have been uploaded already but I've never seen the first scene with the stupid guy at the peephole until my last playthrough.

I wonder why they didn't include those two extra scenes for the first and second day into the normal story flow. They fit right in and greatly enhance the feeling of Ryo and Ren beeing stuck there for days... Instead of just jumping to the third day right away.

Re: WIP: Ryo Hazuki mod for Sonic Generations (V1 released)

Another video.

I have changed the anims. Ryo actually is not a chibi or deformed model like Sonic so running animations does not fit him at all. Now Ryo is able to FLY :mrgreen:

About the videos. I'm sorry for the bad quality but my computer can actually run the game at 30FPS. The problem is FRAPS. When I start it my frames goes to 7-15.

In the next video you'll see the riggin wich is actually poor. I'll fix it tomorrow. Another thing I noticed is that the game is not showing alpha mask on Ryo's hair but I know how to fix it too; I was trying to put opacity in the material's gallery of the game and the correct way is doing it directly on 3D Studio.

If anybody wants the mod I'll share it but actually it doesn't have the quality I wanted. I suggest you to wait a few more days.

Shenmue on Co-Optitude

I don't know if any of you watch Co-Optitude. But I've been begging for them to do Shenmue for months, probably a year by now. But they finally did it and it's hilarious.

Co-Optitude stars Felicia Day(Dr. Horrible, Dollhouse, Buffy, The Guild..) and her brother Ryon. Together they play retro games for the very first time. It's totally funny and I couldn't recommend the show enough. Especially this episode.

Re: Interview w/ NoconKid: creator of fanmade Shenmue HD pro

If you thought NoconKid's ongoing recreation of Yokosuka couldn't get any more impressive, just wait till you see his new video.

The promised November update demonstrates weather effects in the form of an ominous thunderstorm over Ryo's hometown, lighting up the night sky and drenching the streets and their HD fittings with a downpour that would call a halt to all but the most dedicated training sessions.

It's every bit as beautiful as you'd expect from the hand of the South Korean super-fan with a full Shenmue remake in his sights. Let's just hope Sega doesn't rain on his parade.

Re: BlueMue's Shenmue videos

I'm on a roll here...... Today I've got three new videos, all about nightfalls.

The one from Shenmue was a really easy job thanks to the Debug Beta and the ability to speed up the time.
One of my saves is on December 24th and so I was able to easily get snow. So I made a snowy edition aswell.

The one from Shenmue II took a lot more time. There are a lot more areas then I thought, there are 27 different nightfall scene! I recorded these from the Xbox version because I felt that the bloom enhances the mood.

3) Other than all that, did anyone else think the "Between Shu Ferns" crack about wanting a game called " Shamwow 4 " from Gio Corsi's #BuildingTheList was another nod towards Shenmue (and not just a random gag about the shamwow cleaning sponge)? Nevertheless, even Sony's own PR continues to entice us to contribute to their #BuildingTheList campaign. With all our continued effort, let's hope the Shenmue series becomes one of the campaign's triumphs.

I'll put this in here as it's kinda related to modding and such. Not strictly Shenmue but hey, that's the main reason we're here for right?

For those who don't know what the GDEMU is:

Dialogue from unused scene (From LanDC)

Interesting tidbit time. Did you know there was an unused scene in Shenmue II in which Lan Di finds Yuanda Zhu? I found this a long time ago but most of you probably haven't heard of it. Oddly, I only found all this data in the Xbox version. In the voice/sub data AFS for the scene where Ryo is looking for the elevator keys in the Yellow Head Bldg 18th floor, and you only have six minutes to do so before the guards make their rounds, Lan Di has an unused line of dialogue. "So you are Yuanda Zhu." There's no audio clip, but as you can see in the attached image, there's subtitles for it. SRY is Lan Di's abbreviated model name in Shenmue II.

My guess is that originally, if Ryo failed to find those keys in the six minute limit, a scene would be triggered where Lan Di gets to Zhu before Ryo does. Unfortunately, full sequence data is not available, however I did notice something interesting in the motion data for these scenes. There's a motion for TGY (Dou Niu) that reads "TGY_0266A_MANEKU_KOK_0459" Maneku meaning "invite", KOK being Lan Di's abbreviated model name in Shenmue I. So apparently in this scene, Dou Niu would be leading Lan Di into the room where Zhu is being held.

So yeah, there you have it. Only fragments scattered about, but very cool nonetheless. Why was it taken out? Your guess is as good as mine.

Short preview of Shenmue II from the end credits of Shenmue: The Movie. It appears Lan Di is standing on a platform.
