You needed to allow more than one selection. I could pick more than one, but not the "all of the above" option, so I just picked homebrew... which also covers developing and media playing in any case.

I play Commercial and Homebrew games so I voted both, love them so much! You Dreamcast homebrew developers are keeping our favorite system alive, so just showing some very much needed support! :mrgreen:

The community is really kicking in 2011, much more than in years past! Love you 2, keep the games coming! :cartman:

Both of the Dreamcasts I have, have been sitting in a box with other old consoles for about 5 years now. Neither of the GD-ROM lasers read properly (even after tuning).

I emulated Shenmue once, which I thought would be the only game worth coming back to the DC for...but just got bored with it. I've very much moved on. :?
