Howdy Folks!

Been curious about playing SoA for a while now. All the very nice work done by Kryslin and the screenshots show a very imaginative world.

I believe it was the flying battleships that really hooked me. lol

I suppose some of the blame can also be shared by my having sat down and watched Last Exile on DVD recently. Very Happy

My question is this...

Lacking a Dreamcast, how well does SoA play using an emulator on the PC?

I have looked around and seen Chankast is fairly popular, but is there a recommended emulator for SoA?

Chankast is probably your best bet really.

nullDC is pretty good, it works almost perfect with SoA on my pc.

I've been doing some looking around and I get the impression that Chankast is a bit outdated and not really under active development lately.

nullDC seems to be regarded as the best of the lot these days.

Thanks for your suggestions and help, Luigi and Chilly. Smile

I wonder if the day will ever come when somebody gets crazy or bored enough to emulate a Telestar Ranger?

It's funny how SoA and Last Exile go together like two peas in a pie...

I recall a certain anime with a flying battleship and another with a flying pirate ship that pre-date SoA by about 25 years and Last Exile by 30 years.

It does seem there are few original ideas left these days, but SoA and Last Exile are no less admirable for their imaginings. In fact, I do believe that having certain elements in common is what defines the word "genre".

Also, what kind of weird pies are you eating that have peas in them?

Yes, that is how the saying is supposed to go.

It's a rare delicacy served aboard the Delphinus by the ship's galley cook...

You ain't never heard of pea-pea pie? Razz

Apparently nobody has ever had a chicken pot pie. They contain peas.

A lot of pies actually contain peas, I have no idea where this lot are getting the idea that they don't...

The ones the leap to mind at the moment are Space Battleship Yamato (aka Star Blazers), Space Pirate Captain Harlock, and Queen Esmereldas. All three by the same creator, Matsumoto Leiji. Skies of Arcadia does appears to draw a lot from his style for the ships (look at Arcadia from Harlock...)

I do recall Tail Spin, and Don Carnage and his air pirates as well...

You are indeed correct, Kryslin. Smile

Of course, Jules Verne was the first time I came across a "ship of the skies" story which was made into a very entertaining movie with Vincent Price called "Master Of The World".

Leiji Matsumoto and, especially, the modern "Steam Punk" genre of sci-fi owes much to Monsieur Verne and H.G. Wells.

I don't know the source, but I noticed that too when I was searching Ebay for Skies stuff a while back and there was a model of that ship. The guy's outfit shown on the model kit box seemed pretty Vyse-ish, just in general, too, but maybe that was just me connecting "Arcadia" with "similar ship" and "there's a dude on the box, omg".
