Well, which Utopia boot disc do you have? The
raindeer or the dog? or, a different one? o.O
But,yes, you have to use the boot disc...

You will always have to use a boot disc to play the game unless you mod the Dreamcast.

You can play any import game on an NTSC-U DC, as long as you have a boot disc.

I bought mine, instead of using the Utopia one.
