Load games through BBA

Post by gumbyandpals » Wed Jun 09, 2010 10:43 pm

Rather than hacking binaries and compressing files etc. to burn a disc, is there a way to have the dreamcast read game data from a PC HDD through the BBA?

No, no such method exists.
Some people have looked into it without much success AFAIK.

The first one to achieve that will be declared a God by the DC community. :)

Not the answer I was hoping for, but at least after much frustrated searching I have a definitive answer.

The new SDIso module for dreamshell can play some commercial games now, so maybe there's hope on the horizon.

There is a GDLan Loader developed by jc, but it isn't released yet.

The new Dreamshell allows for loading games over LAN.
