Want to play Panzer Dragoon Saga on the bus?

Not the most elegant solution, but it works. Posted on this forum for the Panzer Dragoon reference. :wink:

If only it looked a bit less ugly, I’d probably buy it.

Well, I have my own version of a portable Sega Saturn: this with SSF and all Saturn Panzer Dragoon games. Looks much better, is far more portable, needs no batteries… and is shock-resistant and water-proof! :anjou_happy:

ha- that thing saturn is ugly- too bad sega doesn’t just make a saturn device that had like 30 of the best games (including all Panzers)

it is funny that a super slim netbook could probably run panzer better …

You think so? Doesn’t SSF require like, a decent processor?

Awesome. I hope the guy who made it actually carries it around with him.

Oh, wow, that’s awesome. I’d sport it in a heartbeat. I used to use my CDX as a CD player until I stole my dad’s Discman.

It does. I have a friend whose Toshiba ( a Satellite A300 i think ) cannot run SSF without major slowdowns.

Theres no way a netbook could run SSF.

I bet the battery life is longer than both the Game Gear and Nomad combined!

I think its beautiful… :anjou_love:

I was playing giri-giri at full speed like 7-8 years ago- I would imagine most netbooks are better than that machine I played it on.

A couple days ago I purchased an Acer 1810tz laptop (Pentium dual core 1.3Ghz, 4GB RAM, 4500MHD gpu). It’ll be interesting to see if it’ll run SSF. It runs Halo PC fine.

Yeah don’t think I’ll get one doesn’t look user friendly

There are netbook foorprint sized laptops that would more than run SSF.

The latest x201 from Lenovo, is packing a 2.7Ghz i7 :slight_smile: and weighs in at a cute little 12 inches with tablet functionality (Wacom pen technology and multi touch) although the price is a little heafty you are getting what you pay for in terms of build quality even if the GFX chip is slightly sub-standard.

My 4 year old LG machine with 1.8Ghz Core Duo 1 can run SSF at about 20-30fps and is pretty playable.

For reference, a netbook CAN run SSF but even with overclock and frameskip disabled you are getting 60-70% speed on most games. Which is far too slow for most people although I did brave Panzer dragoon at this speed for a few minutes before tiring of it D: Enable frameskip on a netbook presents you with a slideshow of uh… slides.

I did overclock my netbook to see if it boosted the performance and I managed to get SSF running at a solid 70-75% speed but the heat generated by the overclock caused a BSOD after a few minutes.

With the overclock enabled I can comfortable emulate Dreamcast on my netbook between 90 and 100% speed :slight_smile:

Maybe someone will get a Saturn emulator working on Android? Playing Panzer Dragoon Saga on the upcoming Google tablet (or another Android device of your choice) would be the next best thing to a DS/PSP rerelease.

Pretty neat.

I like the Treamcast a lot better though, :P.

#$%@ yeah, it would!
