    "I've finally got Quake2 properly running on the DS and I thought I'd post a quick (and crappy) YouTube video. I am still getting Q1 pre2 ready, it's just that I wanted to take a break!

    Anyway, linky: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tu4VczrZBdQ (will be up in a few mins)

    In case you're worried, this is exactly the same kind of performance that I had when I first had Q1's software renderer running on the DS. However, I'm still not confident that similar performance can be obtained with this game - there's just too much strain on the system this time.
    This is more of a proof-of-concept, showing that a full-blown game can be run of the extended RAM provided by slot-2 solutions. Yeah, I know all about the 8-bit write problem :-)

    Kinda worried about properly working on this game though"

    Video looks a bit crappy, makes the game look really slow but its great that someones giving it a go! I hope he succeeds.

    That looks nice, he propably has put a lot of work into it. I hope the framerate goes up in the next versions though.
