Re: Official DC Overclocking thread

I'm happy to see that so many of you have been able to overclock your dreamcasts successfully. Aside from the usual revision incompatibilities, it seems to be luck of the draw as to which systems will be stable, and which ones will not. You just have to try it for yourself to find out! FYI, you can ...

Hi there don't know much about overclocking a dc, so how do you know if you have successfully overclocked a dc apart from the game speed and is it true that you can't use your vmu once your dc has been overclocked?

Official DC Overclocking thread

Hello! I'm sure most of you have seen the overclocking tutorial I wrote a few years ago featured on Devcast. I get all kinds of questions about the procedure, results, etc... My time has become increasingly limited, so I wanted to post this thread to allow people to ask me questions relating to this...
