Any info on Unofficial Dreamcast Broadband Adapter In Development?

Post#1 » Sat Oct 07, 2017 6:52 pm

I was wondering about if there was any new info on the development of the homemade bba? I heard about it on youtube in 2014 and never heard a word since. Is it still in the works?

For what reason would it be needed?

Cheaper option for those who don't have one, or have official bba go bad.

That wasn't really a homebrew Broadband Adapter, but rather something very much akin to DreamPi -- it still was basically just a way of rigging the Dreamcast modem up to use something else's ethernet connection.

I don't think the guy who was doing it ever was planning on selling any sort of pre-made kits or anything, but I could be wrong.

In the end, the DreamPi is probably an easier solution anyway...

There were things written up at various forums (probably assembler, but I'm not sure).

Yeah that's a safe bet, better off buying a real bba or better yet a DreamPi so you can play all the games that are currently online :)

It's the best thing ever! It bring's your Dreamcast alive again, you can play online again. 13 games are currently back online and 1 of them has there online features back "Sonic Adventure"



You can buy your own DreamPi kit here so you don't have to make it yourself, there are to models the standard kit has no wifi and the DreamPi kit 3 does that's why it cost more. http://www.dreamcastlive.net/shop.html
