Virtua Fighter 2 emulator? - August 05,2000 by JoseQ
atila posted earlier a link to an image apparently coming from a "Virtua Fighter 2" emulator. It is interesting to note that this image comes from the "Emulation Technical Centre, a site maintained by Richard Mitton, whom you might know from "The New Zealand Story" emulator (TNZS) or Raze, a Z80 emulator used in software you most likely have used before. It is even more interesting to read from his "About Me" page where you might find this sentence: "1999 - Experimented with various emulators (Z80 stuff, Sega Model 2, etc).". Could this be his next project? We can only wait and see what happens, but it is definitely interesting. And coming from Richard Mitton, one can only expect good things.

From:

you all a fool to believe the screen shot is from a real working emu. the site owner simply post the pc game to remind himself of his favorite game.
and some hacker just accidently typed down the location ulr by...er mistake.
a fking setup to me.

From:
The only copy of VF2 for PC I found was at www.cdaccess.com in the US and I wanted the box so it cost megadosh ($50)!

Oh yeah, I got all the Sega PC Arcade conversions, watch out for a website on them sometime.

You can get Virtual Fighter in England for 2 from a chain of discount bookshops (Bookstack I think). I saw loads of copies in Bath at the weekend.

Hey, it's been 6 years since VF2, that's enough for me ;-)

Plus, it's not like you can't download the warez PC version, so I don't see why a warez arcade version is any different.

can't you just buy the copy of VF2 for computer, it is the closest to the arcade version, and will run better.

I remember an interview with Richard Mitton. In it he also stated his future plans in emulation, including writing an Sega Model 3 emulator. Check it: http://www.emugaming.com/emulation/interviews/fixo/rmitton.shtml

From:
Sega? Care about a Model 2 emulator? When utopia and kalisto are enabling thousands of people to download & play Dreamcast games? Frankly, there's not too much more money to be made on these games . . . . DC has VF3tb, Sega could (and should) easily release a "model 2" collection for the DC, and if they don't, then I say more power to Model 2 emulation. 10 years is WAYYYY too long, as well, and unrealistic in the extreme.

Bottom line? I don't think a model 2 emu would affect Sega's pocketbook at all, I don't think they care too much give their other problems, and I think it would be an impressive achievement for emulation.

Subject: Code of honor
From:
The emulation community ought to
draw up a code of honor or something
like that which includes that no
game will be emulated until ten
years after it goes out of
production. Then when something like
this comes up we can always point to
the rules and shun people who break
them. We can say to companies and
corporations that the community at
large agrees not to threaten their
shipping products, just a few rotten
people outside the community or on
the fringe of the community. Let the
person who has stepped over the line
take the heat, instead of everyone.

Subject: Good/Bad?
From:
Christ, ultraHLE and impact was bad enough, this'll be total mayhem if it happens, apart from the fact that even if you've got a monster machine I imagine it'd be slow, and it wont just be VF2, it'll be daytona et all, and I get the impression that sega wont look fondly on it at all, could blow up the way ultraHLE did when it first came about.
Could just be me but I get a bit worried everytime something like this happens, most arcade companys are getting heavy enough as it is, and the last thing any of us wants is the emulation community getting Napster'd.
Only my thoughts, hell of an acheivement if they do it though,

Slow??? What about impact? It runs fine. Would Model 2 really be slower than Impact? I really don't think so...

Virtua Fighter 2 is kind of old, so I don't think
Sega would really care. Besides, it would take more than a p4 to handle a decent speed. I just don't see the prospect of it being actually emulated. Hence, I don't think most of the people would have a capable machine to handle it. It's still years away.

It's kinda old to run off a 3d card, so it's gonna take as much power as they say it will, that is, if this thing's actually being made.
