Is DreamPi and Dreamcast Online America only?

Post#1 » Wed Dec 04, 2019 3:45 pm

Hey all,

Just wondering, from what I've read online and seen on YouTube, getting the Dreamcast up and running online only seems to work in the states, or at least only on NTSC Dreamcasts, but is it possible to get online in the UK where I am? Would anyone be able to send me a link to a tutorial? I'm new to this community and modding as a whole, so I'm not 100% sure on what I'm doing, so I thought I'd ask before I bought into anything and have it not work.

Thanks in advance :D

Using DC in the UK too, no issues. You need a different modem adapter with a PAL specific voltage line inducer. A USA voltage line inducer won't give the right voltage, but outside of that it's pretty much a universal fix.
