Re: What does everyone do for work?

Between the last time I visited here and today I did just about every job under the sun.

But for the past 5 years I've worked for a video game company in the US and enjoy it quite a bit. Even found a few DreamCast enthusiasts among my colleagues <3

Re: COVID 19 Thread

I haven't been on this forum in years and years but recently unboxed my DreamCast collection to finally finish making custom pro-level DVD sleeve inserts to replace all the jewel cases that broke in transit during one move and finally get around to replacing a broken controller board I recently trac...

That sucks. This could have been a great addition to the life support of the Dreamcast...

Re: Value of my DC stuff?

I wish I had found a good "lump" auction at ebay when I was first getting into the Dreamcast. Going over my purchases I have spent well over $1200 filling out my collection with DC stuff. Shipping and handling for all those different auction wins is a bitch. If I had spent maybe $800 on a good set I...

Re: Problem after celibrating my DC's lens..

You probably did what I did when I first attempted this. I moved the potentiometer too far. However, this is not the end. People will say you can break it by moving it too far (probably if you really pushed it) but it has safety guides in both directions. Just keep turning the potentiometer one smal...

Re: What do i need to get the Ultimate DC?

The ultimate DC?!?!?! That would be: A Dreamcast made before October 2000 so it can play backups (it was disabled after this date). A modchip to play imports. Yes you can play them with a boot disc but every boot disc doesn't work with every game. (I always had trouble with Rez before modchip). Plus...

Yeah it is sketchy. However they never overcharged me and sent my stuff right away and in the way I asked for it. The import prices are high, it's to be expected and their customer service is very hard to deal with. They don't speak english all that well. The reason their process is like that is (af...

Actually you can easily get a pair of 3rd party maracas from any one of various Hong Kong suppliers... amongst other Dreamcast hardwares.

Goldenshop is a good source.


There are also a few UK suppliers that still have the maracas in stock.
