Yeah I play most game on a monitor and the Dreamcast looks the best.
I've downloaded Utopia boot disc. What do I burn onto CD-R? The .nrg or the .cdi

These questions might sound daft but I have NO idea how to do this kind of thing. I am relying on the help of you fine people

It took me longer than most people to learn how to do this. Did you download the game yet? Is it in .cdi, .nrg, or .mdf.....? Or something else?

you just burn the cdi with discjuggler, or if you use nero, you convert it to nrg first, with cdi2nero (just drag & drop your cdi on the exe)

Do you know if Toast will burn it ok? Its Macs burning app.
Ive been playing Aerowings. It is awesome. I thought it would be impossible to have a better flying game than Pilotwings 64 but Aerowing comes really close
