How playable is Shenmue on SD card?

Postby Snoopbob2006 » Sat Jul 11, 2015 7:14 am

Is it possible? I have one but when I bought it there wasn't much you could do with it.

Anyone else managed to get it working?

I tried playing Project Justice with a Serial SD Card reader, not worth my $30 and 2 month wait. lol

i got that pos sd reader to work in ds (finally) about six months ago.
above said it best.
my experiences, just way too choppy. (tried with an sdiso another person created, was warned in advance)
serial buffer can't hack a stream that wide and fast.
at least it's good for backing up retails, so there's JUST that, for now.
(if i don't see my dream machine first, but i can land a gdi emu/modem socket replacement for a harddisk and gdi playback, that sd card reader would be useful for copying to and from the hdd, wouldn't matter if it's too slow, no games are played off it.
mpeg based files seem to keep up with it. (a blind music player by sd card.)
sorry for the ramble, but no, not playing shenmue
one warning was absolutely fair, was over zealous on conviction on a response to a subject.
the other one for 'spam' (aka: it was me posting that qualified) which is bogus due to personality clash. why don't who this concerns pull the other guy for destroying my subject, accusing it of SPAM?
oh, i get it now, not one of your cliques, and i watched you stand by and and let him trash it, and you did NOTHING but was complicit in your silence, and totally one sided and agree with it by inactions. (you have the temerity to pull me for spam, and yet, you let your lackey cliquey friends shit on my subjects? double-standards, real fuckin professional dude.)
at least the other staffer explained where i was wrong, and backed it up clearly in writ. :roll:

The serial port on the DC is too slow to handle most retail games. The main purpose really is for Emulators and homebrew. It can also help out devs who dont have a BBA/coders cable. But if you want to play retail games I'd suggest one of the two GDrom replacement drives. There is a USB and SD card one that replace your disc drive entirely.

Thanks guys I was going to put some more effort into it but to be honest with the latest Demul I would rather just use that or my actual copies of Shenmue (Was going to try 99min eng on sd)
