Hello fellow members. I am new to this site and i must say i like it. I am a current member of the neo-geo.com forums for the last 2 years. I recently purchased my first dreamcast and i love they system, however, i need someone willing to do me a favor and take me under their wing so to speak and explain to me how i can get an emulator on my dreamcast in lame mans terms...Im looking for every emulator available, starting with nes. Any info would be obliged. Please pm me as i may have other questions or monetary offers for other items undiscussed in these forum posts.

First of all - go to http://www.dcstuff.thefreeserver.net/ and check out some of the tutorials found there. The one that should be the biggest help to you is "How To Use Selfboot Inducer v4". That should help you get most everything working on your Dreamcast. As long as you read the tutorial thoroughly, everything should work out for you.

we can't provide u with the roms (games), just the emu and how to use use your own roms. sbi is easiest way for a newbie.

www.pdroms.de has some free ROMs. Wraggster uses to upload his ROMs packages to his xbox site. Check the link(s) at Wraggsters newsposts at the main site.

Also check out:


Yes, there must be thousand apps & tutorials available to burn Dreamcast discs, but believe us, SBInducer v4 has the most options and is the easiest to use. You can put several emulators and games on one disc or just use the SBI2Boot feature to create a single emu/game/apps disc without using the DreamInducer menus.
