It can't read official US GD rom games.

Boot discs like AR, GS, and DC-X do not work (crashes) so you can't bypass region lock to boot games mentioned above... !?

Some indie Games (NG Dev games for example) work fine. Only indie game tested that doesn't work at the moment is Sturmwind. It crashes in the Memory card screen... !?

Backups work. Capcom Fighting Collection tested and plays fine.

Official JPN GD software has yet to be tested. But I'm willing to bet it'll work ;)

Hang in there folks ;)

Seems like the Dreamcast motherboard serial port connects to a PC Serial adapter. Like a built in Coder Cable, or connect 2 together with a female serial cable for VS games :shock:

More pics and details please?

What can it do that a regular dreamcast doesn't?

Did it come with any kind of manual?

Running CFC. Controller port is difficult to reach because the MoBo is placed upside down. Mobo dated 1998.
