The version of Sega Swirl I have is the DreamOn Volume 18 version, Sega Swirl was first distributed on DreamOn Volume 8 but trying to get it as a separate disc & case is proving hard for me seeing as other sellers are bundling the disc with other releases...

EDIT: I've seen a YouTube video showcasing the game on Volume 8 and that version doesn't have Email Challenge either... Looks like Email Challenge was exclusive to the US...

I keep getting authentication errors. Where exactly do I enter the information? Do I need to enter the Gmail account or address? Just wondering. I am using Wi-Fi so maybe that's the issue? (even though I am using the latest version)

You need a dc web browser disc to setup email. You enter the gmail address and pass there and you should be good to go. Make sure you can send/receive emails

I know, and I've been using Planetweb 2.0 as my browser. But everytime it saves, I get an authentication error. I guess I just enter the address in that space, the password in that space, and where it says to enter the POP3 and SMTP server info I just enter the IP address the Pi gave me. Is that correct?

Have you tried inserting your SDcard int your PC directly? Then drag and drop the .sh file into the boot drive. Just tried it myself and it copied :)

Same for me, it got all wacky after I did the login. This was unusable.
