Introducing the Dreamcast Live DLC Archive!

Post#1 » Mon Mar 27, 2017 1:46 pm

Dreamcast Live is now home to the internet's largest collection of Dreamcast DLC! This is still a work in progress with the ultimate goal of archiving every bit of Dreamcast DLC ever released. I managed to find all the DLC that was hosted by the now defunct dcdlc.com plus a lot more. If you know of any DLC that's missing and know where to find it, please let me know.

Gootjob PC! Really like how DC live is shaping up.

One thing that I think is really important to mention though, the region of the DLC. For example the US version of Samba de Amigo DLC doesn't work on the EU version and visa versa. Thus it's important to mention the region compatibility of each DLC file. Idealistically make a toggle switch to filter DLC on the requested region.

From what I've seen, the majority of DLC is region-free. Are you sure about Samba de Amigo? I haven't seen any mention of PAL variants of the DLC. It may just be a different file name, as is the case with Street Fighter Alpha 3. I just needed to modify the VMI file to make it work on the US version of the game. For any of the files that I know won't work on specific versions of the game, I've noted it in the DLC's description.

Alright so judging by the file name designated in the VMI files, it looks like the Samba de Amigo DLC is specifically for the US version. I made a modification to the file name which I think might work (I'm just guessing since I can't find any of the PAL DLC). Can someone test the PAL version of After Burner and let me know if it works?

Update: Figured it out! I now have both US and PAL variants of the downloads available on the site. :D

Does anyone know what the "Character File" for Zombie Revenge does? I tried loading it in the game but I can't figure it out. I'm now thinking it might just be a user save file and not official DLC.

Good work PC, sorry for not replying sooner. Thanks for uploading my MSR and the Crazy Taxi 2 DLC. Re the Crazy Taxi 2 DLC, you may wish to let players know they can't have both the Around Apple or Small Apple files on the same VMU; they just overwrite each other! It's also no good changing the internal file names either as that just makes the customers disappear!

Just to let you know, there's an unofficial Ferrari F355 Ranking at http://f355challenge.freehostia.com/. If you visit using your DC, you can download some of the ghost cars. I also managed to grab some F355 ghosts from dcarena.de before it closed down; I'll see if I can dig those out.
