Congratulations on the set Padre! I am very close to getting what you have. All I need is the yellow and black controllers.

I got myself a copy of Daytona Usa. Does anybody know how to upload pictures? This is my first time on Dreamcast-talk and I am not sure how to do it.

Those are the light up Madcatz (R.I.P.) rumble packs! I can't recommend them enough, intense rumble and having them light up when they vibrate is something modern controllers just can't do, lol. I bought a ton of them in bulk from a guy in Poland to outfit all my controllers and peripherals with. They do have some compatibly problems with the Performance Astropads however, so if you try to use it in an Astropad you may have some issues. They work with all the peripherals I have, totally worth picking up. :)

Finally got Sonic Adventure 2 in... that is, I got my second copy of it in.

For some odd reason, somebody in the shipping department got really careless and threw something on top of it or something, and as a result the game was totally shattered. Dead on arrival. I was able to get a refund though, and ordered yet another CIB copy. I would've just gotten a disc only copy (originally replaced the case, albeit the inlay being torn thanks to the damage), but it didn't even matter in the end... it all came down to a very similar price for any copies I could honest-to-god trust, and even then I was still absolutely terrified to order another copy. (I actually still have the wrecked disc, just for the sake of showing friends the nightmare that festered within the shattered case.)

Strangely, this is a game I've had particularly bad luck with when it came to physical copies. I've owned three copies of the Battle version on GameCube; first was dead on arrival (refused to load full stop), second worked well enough to play through (on my Wii, as it refused to load on my GameCube), and the third copy (which was originally a gift for my Dad) was perfectly fine.

Somebody somewhere really doesn't want me to play Sonic Adventure 2 very much.

I've actually just started my Dreamcast collection.

I've since picked up a Dreamcast (obviously), 2 official controllers (the white ones), an AV cable (as they gave me an RF adapter with my system, lol), A keyboard and mouse (dreamcast mouse and innovation keyboard, both of which I haven't quite figured out how to test), MSR, Hydro Thunder (which I got a refund for since it was scratched to hell and DOA), Dreamkey 2.0, PSO V2, Alien Front Online and Crazy Taxi (which were also both covered in scratches and DOA). Thankfully, AFO *did* come with the little mic adapter though.

I also picked up 2 after market controllers, as honestly, the official ones are a bit too small for my hands.

I have a blue "Performance" controller, which is *gigantic*. I find it's much like the (original) original XBOX controller, which my household lovingly refers to as the "hamburger controller", as it looks like a large, sloppy hamburger.

I've also grabbed 2 of the "High Frequency" controllers. They are by FAR my favorite controllers for the console, at least in my limited experience. However, they seem fraught with problems. The first one was perfect except for an X button that just didn't work. The second one has even weirder issues. Some buttons don't work at all, and others activate all kinds of buttons they shouldn't be. I've been using a controller test ROM I burned to see what the buttons do. For example, when I press right on the dpad, nothing happens. But when I press left on the dpad, left, down, right, A, B, X, Y, *and* the right trigger all light up on the diagram onscreen. I have none of the technical knowledge to fix it, and it's very distressing as I think it's the most comfortable controller I'll get for the Dreamcast.

Would anybody know where I could go to either get help in repairing it, or who I could send it to, to have it fixed?

There were four of those Midways game that had to be patched and rereleased dubbed "Hot New!" on the manual cover , and the discs have a color tint typically red tint on them now

Hydro Thunder Hot New has the VGA flag set (but for whatever stupid reason only that it won't do 720x480 like my Beharbros Toro box does it has to be 640x480 , only that title/homebrew)

The mic is awesome to have , welp I had to get AF sealed because I had to have that little foam ball .. w/e it do

You want Quake/Unreal to test your keyboard+mouse , sure I wish in BIOS could , and for whatever reason like my controllers too I thinks I can't plug all the way , has to be a pinch loose

I see those High Frequency controllers are MadCatz brand , not surprised , shoddy build quality
