Anyone got some electrodog modded games?
https://web.archive.org/web/20180816231227/http://www.theisozone.com/downloads/dreamcast/dreamcast-isos/crazy-taxi-elektrodog-version/
Been trying to find some modded versions but think those things are lost after the closing of TIZ :cry:
Need to check my HDD's maybe I have a few of those modded games.
But most of the time when I burn them to cd I remove the image.
Could rip it back, but tried looking for it first.
Don't think those are preserved I can only guess that Anthony817 would have a few of his own releases.
Or is this something I am only interested in :roll:

You are not the only one, I would also be interested in those as well. Unfortunately a lot of those great soundtrack modded games are completely lost. I am for sure looking for the Trickstyle modded soundtrack version which had The Prodigy's Omen amongst a lot of other songs. The MVC2 Michael Jackson remix I uploaded years ago I would like to have as well. A lot of my older collection of burnt games was put into a shed in our back yard which is on the edge of our fence facing a field. And field mice got into it and messed up the CD wallet pissing on and destroying a lot of discs causing disc rot.

I was able to save some stuff and re-ripped the discs of the good ones with Discjuggler, and I verified all sectors were good 2 times before I ripped any, but what I saved were only some Bleem selfbooting games, and some other homebrew stuff. Next time I put anything like that in deep storage, I will use a sealed container to put them in first.

EDIT I finally found the motherlode of Dreamcast magic. However you'll need something like uTorrent to get it. But it has everything including CDI's...

Hey, do you guys have a Zombie Revenge (JAP) .GDI for download?

I am only finding USA and PAL versions, I need the JAP version in bin/raw format.

The one in "https://archive.org/details/almstcmpltdrmcst" is not working with GDEMU

Oh man that sounds great! Right now what my HDD collection consists of basically is mostly TOSEC .gdi rips for my GDEMU, and various homebrew collections like the mirrored google drive upload of the TIZ homebrew collections, and every Bleem release I could find. I really need to use Google sync to download all of the emulators from that recent archive I shared here. While it doesn't have all of the stuff from TIZ, it seems to have most of the Dreamcast specific emulator collections, such as th4e ones with full sets and stuff.

I got a 1tb HDD dedicated to backing up my Dreamcast stuff, so still got some like 200+gb free or so to continue backing up. Since archivers like Atreyu187 have left the DC community I am trying too fill that void in some capacity. I know I will never compare to him and all he has done for our community preserving every single piece of media for the system, but I will try to share hard to find stuff here and there where I can.

If you can help out wherever you think you might be able to, then that would be great. Mistamontiel helped me out a ton by re-ripping his burnt selfbooting bleemed PSX games for DC. between he and myself we were able to recover some 30+ Bleemed games lost from TIZ. So you would be a huge help to what we have tried to do if you can check out if you have any hard to find modded soundtrack games, or anything rare at all it would help us out.

Yes remember Atreyu187 2 got some top notch releases....

I have been in de scene for many years.
Never downloaded the bleem games, I think at the most maybe one or two.
Gonna try to hook up some drives this weekend and check what I have.

My biggest achievement in the DC scene is been covered on the game page of http://boob.co.uk/games.html
Scroll way down haha to find this:

Did a few dreamcast covers back in the day.
https://web.archive.org/web/20021017023627/http://dc-nigma.tripod.com/
I Tried saving my old website but only indexed the first page...

After the Dreamcast scene got silent I went to the Xbox scene and change my nick to DCNigma ;)
Or Xbox got better emulators don't remember it that good haha.

Over the years I followed all the big consoles and I there mods/hacks. Been on break after the ps3 scene died.
I came too late to the Switch party, If I search I could find A exploitable console i guess. (i have Jig already)
But retro scene is more fun.

Also have a PS4 that apparently I turned off just at the right (last year) firmware .2 months ago I turned it on and it was on 5.05 :mrgreen:
But don't know the games on ps4 or xboxone don't appeal to me only retro... but then again switch got some good retro ports
Virtua Racing looks f*ck*ng great...

Dc was my first console where I got complete hooked on.
At That time did't know a lot about programming etc only design so I did what I could and that was make custom covers:
