Trying to get custom JGR graffiti into a VMU

Post#1 » Thu Aug 22, 2019 8:22 pm

I made my own custom graffiti for Jet Grind Radio and would like to put them into a VMU. I tried to transfer the files using Dreamshell but it didn't work. I then bought a NEXUS VMU, thinking I could just connect it to my PC but it uses a parallel port. So what can I do? I can't go online with my Dreamcast as I did back in the day due to it having a 56k modem. Any help would be appreciated.

First, make or get a DreamPi. Then make sure your image follows this criteria:

To access the in game browser, go to the doghouse/internet and then drag mouse to very bottom of screen and you have to hold A and press start 9 times and then press Y (I mashed in frustration 2x and this is all I can say)

Then save the image by pressing X and A simultaneously.

Select "DL" from the list.
