Hello Dreamcast enthusiasts

Post#1 » Tue Jan 03, 2023 6:20 pm

Hi,

New member here from the UK, and a Dreamcast owner since 1999. It's my favorite games console and I still play it today.

I've recently made the transition from original Dreamcast hardware to optical emulation with MODE after my GD-ROM drive needed replacing for the second time. As I am not technically proficient beyond swapping disc drives, I decided to have a custom built Dreamcast with all the common mods and DC Digital HDMI output.

Now, 23 years later, I still enjoy playing some Power Stone, Sega Rally 2, Soul Calibur and House of the Dead 2 as I did back in 1999, and hoping to share that enjoyment with fellow Dreamcast enthusiasts.

I'd love to see some pics of the modern setup you have! Welcome to the homepage of the Dreamcast!

I hope to take some pictures when I get the chance. My Dreamcast is connected to a Denon AVR for audio which then feeds video to a 65" LG OLED. I've been upgrading AV equipment over the years and the DC has always been part of my setup. Since having the HDMI mod, I think I now have a near perfect Dreamcast for the next decade or longer.

Thanks. My Dreamcast is not online but that's something I want to remedy at some point. How are you online, using the BBA or a Dream Pi?

I'm using a dreamPi setup via PC-DC server. Raspberry Pi units are tough to get right now, but I'll likely get one of those going eventually.
