DUAL BIOS SEGA DREAMCAST PLUG AND PLAY

Post#1 » Fri Mar 30, 2018 9:00 am

So far the way to have a modified BIOS was removing the original BIOS or soldering an EEPROM chip on the original chip, but now with DREAM BIOS REVOLUTION you will not have to solder anything just plug and play on the original chip.

I'm sorry if it's a dumb question, but what's the purpose of changing the BIOS? Region free is an obvious one, but I just want to see if I'm missing something.

stuff like this, he's supposed to eventually release an improved one with more added features. this bios alone imo justifies purchasing something like this

You need to change the bios to boot to DreamShell if you want to do an IDE mod.
Dreamcast: Blue Swirl, 60hz, White LED, Removable battery holder, Internal SD card reader, BBA, DreamPi, RGB Scart

Not been any news further about it yet. Reservations are still open for people wanting one. I suggest you sign up to let him know how many people want one. I am.

And holy crap @TuxTheWise, man is that a face and name I haven't seen or heard about for years! Nice to see more old faces around here from back in the day. Any more projects you got planned on Dreamcast or you pretty much done after DCRes?
