Dreamcast Development related Links

This is a collection of websites of which we think they could be interesting for you amateur programmers out there. If you think your site should be listed here as well or know of any other site that we might have forgotten, drop me a mail

Hard- and Software Vendors

makers of... hum, what do you think...?!

http://www.cric.co.jp/ (archive.org) CRI
They have created the MPEG/Sofdec and CRI/ADX sound compression used in many DC games.
quote: "The big difference between using QSound on the Dreamcast vs the Saturn, for developers (1st and 3rd party) is that Sega isn’t charging a sublicense fee this time around. The use of QSound on the Dreamcast is absolutely free to developers - it’s there for you to use."

Third Party Products
