I tried out Elektrodog's rip of Crazy Taxi 2 and my Dreamcast just couldn't handle it. It plays everything else I throw at it but this it doesn't seem to like. It boots, but the Dreamcast sounds like it's having holes drilled into it while it loads and plays; the laser just goes nuts with movement. It got me questioning if it was the rip or my Dreamcast...
When the game plays it cannot stream the data from the disk quick enough, and the backgrounds fail to load in time rendering it unplayable. Even if it would play, I would fear for the lifespan of the system, and I can see now why some folks think playing burned backups can shorten the life of Dreamcasts!
Slipped in the (non backup) version of Crazy Taxi 1 after and it was whisper quiet in comparison!
Has anyone had the same issues? Are there any better versions out there that anyone knows of? I noticed there was sadly no atreyu187 or noBS versions.
Does anyone know if the 9 year old(!) hooliganz alternative works better? Don't fancy risking burning another coaster.
