So I pulled this old thing out of the closet...

Post#1 » Tue Jan 31, 2017 4:43 pm

... and forgot how much I enjoyed it. My bedroom just got a hand-me-down TV from the living room and I didn't have a second AppleTV to try it out, but I had my old Dreamcast, and it works just as well as it did when I packed it up years ago. It's like I got a new toy 15 years after I boxed it up.

I forgot how cool these games were, and I got into playing them and lost track of time. I hooked it up about 4pm. 5 hours later I was starved! So, I went online, and found out that people are still making games for it, and now I want those shooters from Germany from a Neo Geo group.

This last weekend I went to a retro game store and picked up and extra controller, Jet Grind Radio and Ready 2 Rumble. JGR didn't have it's manual, it was a home printed CD label, but I found a PDF and read the instructions.

Yeah. I'm new here. :D

Hey man, welcome

It's cool to see all the newer people vouch for online, a few years ago it was mostly fans/offline people

But as others said also, you should look into getting a Dreampi setup

Hehe. Well, I rarely go online with XBox Live now. I'm more of a personal player and am not much of a fan of FPS's. I just can't survive more than a few seconds when these kids pot shot me as soon as I respawn. I also don't think I have any games that play online right now as it is.

So I'll have to think about that Dreampi thing. I haven't heard of it until now anyway. Can anybody tell me about it? Does the DC even have wifi capabilities?

The dream pi replaces the dc broadband adaptor. Its much cheaper. Im not an online guy either.

Raspberry Pi 3s have wi-fi . You run that with a micro-SD with the DreamPi image written on it , plug a USB fax modem , solder up a USB-powered line voltage inducer plug that into fax modem finally run the dial-up cable that to Dreamcast

er commission TacT for one of those LVIs built-into the fax modem =} His thread be somewhere here

Only one current online DC game is a FPS. The rest are mainly fun arcade style games. Chu chu rocket and Alien front online are great games to chill out and just have fun online.
