I can design and build some Dreamcast serial cables if you guys need them. Like has been mentioned, you don't really make money from these small projects. It's really to help the retro community. And I enjoy making things that aren't available or hard to get. Especially when people are being gouged on eBay for them.
Don't really want to duplicate efforts if someone is already building them, which I see above. However want to make sure they're really coming.
Let me know what people think. Would take me about 2-3 days to design the connectors. Then about 2 weeks for an initial print and probably some updates. Could have initial cables probably in about 1-2 months. I would need to buy 2 Dreamcast consoles and 2 player games for testing. Takes me 65 minutes to build a VB cable and the Dreamcast one looks about the same.
Hey Kevin! Welcome to dctalk boards! I have received a prototype build from Pcwiz on here. However Id be willing to buy one of yours as well due to your amazing build quality. I'm not fully sure where PC is on making his version "mainstream" but I for one would appreciate the extra options out there for such a rare cable. I hope others agree
