I think Wetrix for the dreamcast was a true underdog. Once I figured out a strategy that worked well, it became very addicting.

Priceless

One Radio Shack Y-Adapter (with an intermittent short) = $5.00
Two 40GB Maxtors = $300

Corrupt data and bad sectors = Priceless.

I cant figure out why it didnt just fry them. I accidently unplugged a powered IDE drive once, and it died immediatly.

You can put as many roms as you want on a single cd, however nester is limited to 1024 roms for any single directory. So split your roms into sub directories like A-M and N-Z, or split them by region. Example: /1stread.bin /games/USA/Super Mario.nes /games/JAPAN/Mother.nes /games/EUROPE/New Zealand ...

All dreamcasts can play audio cds. Some newer dreamcasts do not boot audio/data cds, but should boot data/data cds (which I beleive is the format DCFactory creates).

Come now 404, I think you and I both know that this is completely irrelevant to the discussion at hand. :lol:
Ummmm ok but i don't think that an online store would let you hand them the money.
What about a credit card transaction? :wink:

I didnt realize they were that cheap now. I paid $20 for my dc keyboard and $25 for the mouse. On the other hand, I bought a LAN adapter when they were $59, and I could probably sell it on ebay for 3x that, but I dont think I'm gonna anytime soon. :lol:

Did you convert it to an ISO to burn with EZCD? I'm not sure it can even burn self boots properly. In my experience, EZCD has to be one of the most limited and useless burning packages out there. Just download the free (fully functional) 30 day NERO demo and burn it with that.
