Re: 32MB RAM Expansion

I now have a 32MB RAM Dreamcast! :D I actually got around to getting this done before pulling out for vacation. I had to take a risk in doing a piggyback BIOS install instead of a triple BIOS since my PCBs haven't been made yet -- if any of the BIOS images with 32MB patches didn't work, the DC would...

Re: 32MB RAM Expansion

For those attempting to do this, I have uploaded an updated DreamShell CDI image with nearly 50 different BIOS images in a variety of flavors: DreamShell 32MB Flasher Includes stock BIOS images, Link83, japanese-cake, DreamBoot, DreamShell, etc. A list of BIOS images included here ! This image also ...

Re: I'M BACK

That's a good perspective, I suppose. He messaged me before he left and kind of like me, he wasn't happy. I think it has been many years and we have attained some level of maturity, maybe reaching out could bring happiness. See, we have a lot of history and we are obviously no longer as free as we ...

@Darc: Yup.
Not really. I mean, I am not saying I have anything against him or that I don't want him around if he comes around. But he apparently left intentionally, so I'll respect that.

Re: Request: GDROM extract / Future City Demo

Just cleared out the attic and amongst about 80 Dreamcast games (I got given preview copies), system disk, a broken Dreamcast (black screen when on), is a GDROM entitled Future City Demo. I've no idea whether this GDROM still works - but does anyone have the equipment/know-how to try and extract it...

Re: Can't bring up DCHDMI OSD menu

Hmm, pretty weird. Your controller is working fine in games otherwise, and you're attempting to bring the menu up at a time where the console is accepting input (e.g. the console won't let you bring up the DCHDMI menu when at the boot logo/Sega copyright screen, but will let you do so when the conso...

Re: 3D printed serial connector.

This is a really cool idea! In in the past I've avoided making my own serial connectors (from AGP slots/HDMI connectors and whatnot) and I use a Neo-Geo Pocket Color cable's official connector for various tasks instead. This looks like a much better way to come up with your own connectors. Side note...

Re: SHENMUE III CONFIRMED

Xbox/Sony consoles are just inferior devices trying to be PCs. I have no interest in messing around with an inferior device for gaming when so many great franchises that were originally console-based are now available on PC I can just never have this mindset. I'd always prefer to take the inferior ...

Re: Internalized DreamPi Adapter

That’s pretty awesome, I saw it on reddit earlier and didn’t spot the username. I’ve been thinking of getting a new DC for a while and I’ve been looking at all the modern modding options, so this is definitely one for the shortlist. Currently to keep it low cost I’m just starting with an unofficial...

Re: SHENMUE III CONFIRMED

@Darc: Why didn't you just go for PS4? Given that this is a console website. I assumed you were a console gamer. I am honestly surprised that so many PC gamers cared for Shenmue given it was never released on PC. I play retro consoles (on the real consoles, not emulators), and I haven't really care...

Internalized DreamPi Adapter

Just a little something I've been working on. I used a Dreamcast kiosk's blank modem shell to create a WiFi adapter for Dreamcast (DreamPi based, of course).

Hey there! Looks like those images only work if you are signed into a SegaXtreme.net account. Perhaps you could upload them to the attachments system on this board? Looking forward to trying this!

Re: SHENMUE III CONFIRMED

I haven't even gotten a chance to play it yet besides firing it up and seeing the beginning. Last year I played through Shenmue I and most of II and intended to finish it before playing this.

But yeah... it's Shenmue all right, warts and all.
