Now I'm really going to derail this thread but because it is somewhat related, I'm going to spill the beans. That DLC file was lost back in 2000 so it's not like it is going to be recovered like ever. Now the thing was a save file which went onto the internal memory which was sadly copy protected so if if the battery ever dies then the DLC was lost. Now it was more like a firmware patch for the thing and because it was an optional file it's not like we lost very much.
Now Planet Web, just like the Dreamcast had 3 versions alongside with several revisions for the Saturn and at one point there was going to be a v4.0 which never came out due to Sega at the time retracting the console off store shelves back in 1998. However it was said that the rom was dumped back then too but to be lost after the dot com crash of 2001, but that urban legend was shot down like 5 years ago when someone found the thing on a backup tape (remember when that was a standard for data storage?) and reuploaded it onto the internet right around the time of the Megaupload seizure (which didn't affect this at all unlike most other things) for everyone to use. It was a unique iso file because it is the optional downloadable save file that was pre patched onto verson 3.0 while retaining the look of the last public release on the Saturn. The internal version number is like 4035b but it was no doubt the V4 that was shelved at the time. The only thing that wasn't complete is that the updated UI was never finished. I have the rom archived onto my PC so if anyone out there can swap trick the saturn or has a modified console can give it a spin they can. I don't mind sending it to you if you really want it, but you have to PM me okay?
Now I have honestly never really seen this done with Dreamcast here in the US but I have heard that it is real and it has been done before but having a patch file sent to you via Planet Web or Sega Net could have been possible

Second question I had was that games that have a Leaderboard hosted; I cannot pull it up in game. For instance, I tried SF Rush 2049 and Sonic Adv 2. Clicked Website on Rush, didn't load. Sonic Homepage is greyed out. I'm using the game discs on both and I know the DreamPi is functioning.
PS: Does PlanetWeb 4.0 actually exist?
