I tested some of the online games using DreamShell + SD Card, here is what I found:

Phantasy Star Online ver 2 - Works really well online but there is an issue where you can't revive other players.
Monaco Grand Prix 2 Online - Works great online, without CDDA.
Quake 3 Arena - Works great online, without CDDA.
Planet Ring - Connects but you can't find other players, the games are always full.
Toy Racer - Connects, you can chat but It freezes when you start a game.
Chu Chu Rocket - Connects, you can chat but when you start a game you go back to the lobby.

Windows CE games don't work on the SD Card, I have to test the online ones on ide.

Just to add, Alien Front Online works flawlessly when played online from SD (at least for me!)

Hi, may I ask you how did you managed to do this? I tried three SD releases of Alien Front Online and every of them makes my Dreamcast go to menu when connecting to server.

Best regards :D

I'm really not sure to be honest! I just used an ISO from theisozone and it seems to work fine for me, but I've heard other people say it doesn't work for them.

It's really strange. I tried two Dreamshell version, two different cards and two different game releases - all of them freeze after getting connected. Problem isn't laying in network configuration, because I used PlanetWeb and have normal lenght phone number. Moreover, disc version works perfectly.

Maybe some special settings in Iso Loader?

Hmmm, let me check - I'm on holiday for 3 weeks but when I'm back I'll try it again and see about connecting online. I also have the GD so maybe I'm getting confused and perhaps I've used the GD for online play. I'll get back to you :)
