Modded Dreamcast?
« on: August 20, 2020, 02:55:31 PM »
I thought I saw somewhere recently where someone was selling a modded Dreamcast that would basically play every DC game ever without having to maintain or swap the CD in the drive.

Anyone here have one of these or know where I can obtain one?

Yep, its a GD EMU you replace the drive with an SD Card Reader.. There is also a mod that you can install a CF Card and use a boot loader.

I think I have this figured out.

Just ordered the GD Emu product from Amazon.

I will re-post when I get it working.
