On one of my modded systems I strait up replaced the port with the plug from a vmu, only need 10 lines, vmu plug has 14. Looks awesome, hacked SD card reader inside a vmu plunged in the back of he system = awesome.

Nice, finally found decent schematics for the DC to PC cable on this Russian site. All the other ones I found didn't mention what the connections were on the Dreamcast serial port's side. Which made those schematics quite useless...

Still, those schematics are made with a MAX3222CPN chip, and not with a MAX3232CPE as in the original cables. Anybody know where I can find the schematics with the MAX3232CPE chip?...
Come, bow before your King!... Bow ya shits!...
