Does anyone here not have a DreamPi but is thinking of getting one?


Ok sure, like I say I have 5 people wanting to get their Dreamcasts back online (I’m sure I still class as an EU person being from the UK, we’ve not left the EU yet) lol. Let me know when your good to go


Ok DCUK.

Ill be back home soon and update you then.

I am an electrical engineer, the build quality will be to a high standard. All components will be epoxy glued to the board but will not be inside a housing.

At the moment I am wanting to know if there is anyone interested in this as I will need to order the required parts before hand. I am currently abroad and will be returning home October 16. I only have a week to do this before I leave again so I only plan on making 5 or less.

If anyone is interested please reply to this topic.

EDIT: I will be prioritizing for people who dont already have one. My aim is to get new players online.

I would be very interested. How much will it probably cost and what will I need for this to work? I've never owned one and would love to get my dreamcasts back online. Might even order more than 1 for my multiple dreamcasts to play with people online in my home if that is possible.

Research DreamPi on google/youtube. Essentially you need:

-Raspberry Pi 3
-LVI (£10 + postage)
-4GB micro SD card
- Lenovo/Dell modem

The LVI is the only part that needs to be made from separate electronic components and is that part that puts some potential users off.
