Ok, I had to move the site again. Its now hosted
on my shell which I have purchased for a year so it shouldn't go
anywhere for a while. In moving, I decided to check all of the
links and I found a few dead ones and fixed them.
Also, many of you have been emailing me about where
to find various roms. Most rom sites are dead these days.
Digital Arcade still has all MAME
roms. You can go
directly to the Street Fighter II roms by clicking here.
I am also mirroring the latest callus versions
(0.42) here. Here is the Windows
DirectX version, the DOS version,
and the Windows DirectX Q-Sound Player.
Also, my email has changed. Its now email@example.com.
I would also like to point out
that while MAME supports many
more versions of Sf2 than Callus, it is possible to play most, if not
all versions of sf2 in callus with a little rom renaming. The
various sf2 sets (sf2a, sf2b, sf2e, etc) can be renamed to match the
callus sf2 set. The various hacks such as sf2red and sf2accp2 can
be played in Callus by renaming the roms to match the sf2ce set, not
sf2rb. I believe that the sf2rb support in callus was accomplished
through some kind of hack.
Tonczer sent me a movie
of Blanka doing the double roll then bite in SF2WW. Also, I would like people to
know that most of the SF2 games have been added to MAME
which is an actively updated emulator. All 4 versions of
SF2WW are implemented there, so you might want to check out the glitches on each
version. It should have SF2RB support soon too. As far as we all know, Callus
I would also like to point out this text based glitch guide written by Derek Daniels. Scroll down to the bottom and you
will see he thanks me. :-)
Also, if you yearn to contact me, you can
almost always find me on IRC on the Efnet network in the channels #retrogamers and
#classicemu. If I'm not there, just ask someone (or the bots) if they have seen
Yes, I know its been a long time since my last
update. There hadn't been anything new....until now. I received an email from
Mike Z about the scroller Guile glitch I said I discovered. It turns out this is a
very interesting glitch. There are specific moves you can do while in the glitch,
one of which kills your opponent. Head over to the Guile
page to check it out. And of course, we have new movies
and save states with this glitch.
I also updated the Street
Fighter Rainbow move guide slightly.
J_ROM released Street Fighter II Japanese to
the public. This works with current versions of Callus. I think you can pick
up a copy at Davesclassics.
We moved to a new server. My e-mail
address is now firstname.lastname@example.org.
I added the Street Fighter
II Rainbow Move guide as promised. I also added a standard move guide.
I wanted to talk a little about the Rainbow
edition. I received a bunch of mails from users about this version. First of
all, the name gets its title from the distorted logo (see below). After many emails
and my experimenting, I want to change what I said about it. I no longer believe
that the rainbow edition is the same as blackbelt. It is quite close, but not exact.
Blackbelt is supposed to be less "messed up" and have slower fireballs
and midair throws. I personally also remember something about Blanka turning into
Ryu when ducking, which is not present in this rainbow hack. I am also told that a
lot of the minor details of the hacks are acheived through messing with the dipswitches.
If anyone can do this on Callus, please email me.
I made a lot of cosmetic changes to almost all
of the site (as promised a while ago). If there are bad links, please tell me.
