I've just read at RetroRGB that Metal Slug 6 from Sammy Atomiswave got a "port" for Dreamcast.

This seems was first announced at "Dreamcast Talk forum", and it's great news for all Dreamcast fans. Maybe we will see some more games coming.

Ive read that it gives you 14 lives per credit with no option to change it!? Hopefully the next step is making available a configuration menu for these ports but in the meantime we all would thank if they preserve the factory settings, specially when they already enabled free play.

Which were the differences between the Atomiswave game and the official PS2 port, anyway?

Aw, it's not a licensed release. Apparently someone cracked the code for "easily" porting Atomiswave to the Dreamcast, which is famously a very similar platform.

Would be cool to have an affordable port that's practically arcade perfect, but if it's a "bootleg" anyway, that means they are competing with existing bootleg Atomiswave carts. :)

This is pretty cool. Needs a real service menu though.
