The Dreamcast system supports region protection as set in flags in the IP.BIN. There are three region areas: Japan (J), North America (U), and PAL-based (E). Many games had additional region protection based on their own detection routines, but the only region protection supported by the system itself was the easily-circumvented IP.BIN flags. There are many boot discs available to help circumvent the region protection.
