Re: Stuck potentiometer?

Slight necro, but this is important:

Exercise caution turning that potentiometer- I managed to bust the screw head off the thing after I had to tweak it a lot of times over the years. I wound up buying a new Dreamcast from a friend of mine because the old one refuses to read discs.

Re: What do you use your Dreamcast for nowadays?

I've been getting games for the system off Amazon and playing em through for a while now. Plus, where else could I play "The Typing of the Dead?"

Re: Goddamnit, George Lucas

Poor bastard he is, that Lucas. Got tons of money from the first trilogy, set up a film devhouse that revolutionized cinema sound and picture quality, and then he just goes into a tailspin because he wants to edit the crap out of his old work. I heard somewhere that the reason he did this whole "Gre...

Rainbow Six Dreamcast Port

I just snapped up a copy on Amazon but strangely enough the game supports the keyboard but not the mouse. At present I could potentially use the dreamcast controller as a trackball for movement and firing but it's a bit disconcerting that I can't use my dreamcast mouse with the game. I do have a cop...

Dreamcast + HDTV?

I'm in the market for an HDTV. I've been browsing around for a setup that works for what I plan to plug into it (everything from the Sega Genesis to PS3). I remember hearing somewhere that Dreamcasts have issues playing on HDTVs. Is there any veracity to this statement? Obviously, it won't be in HD ...

Re: Dreamcast question

Did you check the model on your Dreamcast? If it's made on or after October, 2000 with firmware 2, then there's significantly less chance of being able to run homebrew. I would know because I happen to own an October 2000 dreamcast with Firmware 2. So I can't run any homebrew most likely. I've tried...

Re: Please join our IRC chat room!

I visited the chat room for a moment, then made myself look like an incompetent hack by comparing an operating system and a programming language. Then I left.

Re: Post everytime that you buy a new game...

Well, good thing I didn't port my lv19 RAmar. I ported a lv3 HUmar. I've got two characters going. Might try a RAcast or a Force if I'm feeling masochistic- generally forces don't lend well to single player. Main reason to do anything with PSO ver 2 is that you have recovery items that can revive yo...

Re: I herd you liek half life...and Dreamcast:D

Has anyone tried running this version of Paranoia? I played the original version of the mod for the Steam HL, very fun and amazingly good visuals for the engine.

I just got that one myself. Also, managed to snag PSO Ver. 2 for Dreamcast on Amazon through QuickBuys. The disc is pretty much new looking, and the product key works so that's cool. Should I port my main PSO character into Ver 2?
