Description

Hi Marcus C, here is a report on how the 0.6.0 release
behaves on my Dreamcast.
I know it’s not a bug report – so feel free to delete it
when you want – I hope it’s useful.
Thanx for all the great work – and I hope all is well on
your side.

Thanks for the report, Torben.

I'm closing the ticket since it isn't a bug report, but it
will remain accessible in the system for future reference.

Great Marcus

By the way I forgot to say that there is an issue with the
Broken Sword Cutscene Packs they dont work with the
Dreamcast port, its the old problem with the media being
compressed with some format, which the Dreamcast port
doesnt support.
Any solution to the problem?
