[Hardware Mod Info for Dreamcast]

Post by pisuke » Wed May 16, 2018 1:23 pm

Hi to everyone.. i am new about dreamcast modding but i have some doubt because in these days i've looked ad many video ... but i am confused.

Excluding a serial mod because it's too slow and have problem with lot of game i am reading about modding with a sd /sata HDD..

I HAVE SOME QUESTIONS...

1) when i mod my dreamcst it's a "must have" the chip X29LV160 modify? if i correctly understand i have to flash the new bios on this chip and if i buy a hardware switch ... having the possibility to switch between the original / hacked bios... correct?

2) if i decide to leave the gdrom and solder the new ide cable .. may i use a ide to CF adaper or i will have problem with games?

thanks for all replyes
