Microsoft has announced software for developers that should speed the creation of Windows CE-based games.
The company said it is working on its Windows CE toolkit 2.0 – a suite of software programs designed to spur development of Dreamcast games and applications.
Of the 18 game titles unveiled at the recent Dreamcast launch, none used Windows CE software.
The toolkit is designed to simplify title development and conversions from other system platforms, Microsoft said. The toolkit also provides improved graphics performance and other multimedia effects.
Acclaim Entertainment, Infogrames Entertainment, Kalisto Entertainment, Konami, Majesco, and Sega are developing games for the Dreamcast using Windows CE, Microsoft said.
The toolkit will be available until early October, Microsoft said.
