Is there a reason you need one?

I never really understood the point of a Dreamcast modchip; it plays CD-Rs out of the box, and there are free boot discs you can download and burn to run import games. When I had my Dreamcast, I had at least half a dozen imports, and always just used an import loader that I downloaded. It's a lot cheaper, and doesn't require doing anything to your system.

The primary reason this community exists is because the Dreamcast doesn't need a modchip.

Simply to get rid off the boot disk.

I would like to pop in a Pal Disk or an NTSC disk on my Pal system without worrying about finding/making a boot disk, it is just convenient.

fatheadpi (whatever happened to him?) used to sell modchips for saturn and dreamcast. i bought a dreamcast one off of him cheap for the same purpose, to not have to use a boot disk.

Also most people don't realize that Utopia Boot Disk isn't that good, a game with a few scratches may run perfectly however a game with a few scratches may not boot with it.

reason i would use a mod chip is that the boot disk (at least the one I have) is not VGA compatible. So it was usually a real bitch of unhooking cables to get it to boot my imports.

If your reason is to not use a disc I think you can now flash your bios for it to be region free.
