You are running Adblock...
We're really sorry for the inconvenience, but please would you disable your ad-blocker? Our adverts are relevant and non-intrusive, they appear only at the top and the sides, never in the content. They don't include auto-playing audio either, they really won't spoil your enjoyment of the site. Thank you in advance!
Want to see this appeal go away forever? Support us on Patreon and we'll make that happen! Click the button on the left to find out more.
"I'm not running an ad-blocker!" - Refresh/reload the page, if you still see the panda or have other problems then click here to contact us immediately, thanks.
"Why are you doing this?" - Frankly we're struggling to make ends meet here especially since the site got more popular. The only way we can think to cover our costs is to run ads, but if so many of you keep blocking them...
"But I never click ads!" - Doesn't matter, you should only click them if they interest you. We get paid based on the number of views AND the number of clicks.
"You ruined the site!!!1! I want to send you hate mail!!" - Sure, click here.
Another fact - We have the software and the power to completely block adblock users from our site, but we're not going to, at least for now. We figure most of you would like to support us and you only installed Adblock because of other sites that aren't so considerate with their ad placement. Please, don't punish us because of them, in the seven or so years I've been a blogger/webmaster I've ALWAYS considered the need to balance monetisation with reader experience. I want to build an audience not send them away.
So go on, whitelist us and any other site you love. If it wasn't for ads, the internet would lose a whole chunk of really great niche content like this, which would be a real shame in our opinion.
Now, go ahead and read the page if you want to, but wouldn't it be much more convenient if you just whitelisted us? :)
Fans of classic Sega games rejoice! Thanks to the awesome new WineD3D DirectX to OpenGL wrapper software from dosse91, we’ve been able to get classic rail-shooter Panzer Dragoon to work on Windows 8! Previously only compatible with Windows 7 and earlier, this title is now fully playable on the latest versions of Windows. This is the second game we’ve been able to fix or improve thanks to these new wrappers. WineD3D was originally developed to allow Windows games to run in Linux, but as Windows evolves too, we can take advantage of the work done getting games running in Linux to help them run in more recent versions of Windows too, that’s the great thing about open source software.
While we were at it, we also tested the game with the _inmm tool. This program fixes CD audio playback problems in many older games. We’re delighted to report that with a bit of coaxing, Panzer Dragoon is compatible with _inmm too, meaning the instances of music not looping correctly (particularly noticeable in boss fights) can now be fixed.
Head over to our updated Panzer Dragoon page to get your Panzer Dragoon on.
