Retroguru wants to give their games away for free, so they're handling out free copies of the game on exhibitions and selling it for a small fee via my shop.

So we both don't make any loss :)


Will you release any of their other releases in a boxed format? I don't have a printer, of a decent quality, and the value you offered for this was great. Love to have even just the covers for some of the other stuff. I could source my own cases then :)

My copy is not loading past the logo screen. It loads and then goes to a black screen. However my dreamcast may be falling prey to the hardware reseting problem. If the hardware reseting problem is gradually occurring could this effect the readibility of certain cdr's? Or could it effect other aspects of the dreamcasts hardware. Some cdr's have stopped working for me recently which is why I ask. Two games simply reset on an infinite loop at the sega logo title screen.

Looks like I'm gonna have to take a look at my dc. Anyone got any ideas? ever experienced something like this before? It's kind of odd.

If your DC laser is dying then yes, CDr's as well as factory pressed CD's can be harder to read for the poor baby... :cry:

I see. Now my dc is resetting with most or all games. I believe it's the hardware resetting problem for sure. I know there is a tutorial on youtube and it's an easy fix.
But I'm thinking my laser could be screwy too. Is there any easy way to clean it without having to buy something to clean it?
I hope its not dying.

I ordered my copy a couple days ago, I guess it'll arrive next week.

I really don't know. I'm not exactly a technical expert. But there's lots of tutorials and articles about it so it shouldn't be hard to fix... or to check if you just need a new DC, which fortunately is not an expensive machine.

I was gonna purchase this game but concerns that people are having some technical issues.

As the game is only €3.28 but then it has a €27.70 price tag for postage (to the UK),so may have to give it a miss until there is a promo code that is valid for dragonbox as promo codes don't seem to be active at the moment.

Maybe I'll get to play it one day

It says the shipping for signed mail to the UK is 6.50.

Same as to the US actually.

I know I saw that but when you create an account and add your postal address it bumps up the shipping costs big time!

I can only speak for myself, but I've had no problems here, it simply boots
