Is that true that you don't need a modchip to play backup.
How to soft mod it?
Quite simply: You don't need to to my understanding.
The loader does not check any authentication so you just need to burn a game to a CD-R
You don't need to do anything all you need is some backups that self boot put them in your Dreamcast then just turn it on.
No modchip, as the system can read CD-R's just fine, if not there is a pot I believe you can tweak.
There are two main ways
older way: Utopia Bootloader games. You put in the Boot loader disc, wait a few seconds till it says put your game in. Then put in the burned game you want to play. Usually images that are .nrg (nero), .cue/.bin (Alcohol 120%/IMGburn). These are non self booting disc hence the use of a bootloader.
Newer way, Selfboot games, just burn'em and play'em. Usually a .cdi format that can be burned by discjuggler or bootdreams (I prefer bootdreams in CDRecord mode).
Why do you think the system never did as well as it could have?
A ton of people, upon hearing this, never bought games again.
Sega did eventually release a DC that could not read CD-Rs but it was too little too late.
No it blocked the mil-cd format but if u use bin2boot and create a backup that is data/data
instead of audio/data it would work.....
If your planning to get a dreamcast make sure the the Manufacturing date isn't between Oct. 2000 - Dec. 2000 those are supposedly the DCs which block MIL-CDs
sorry, my mistake
either way, as was said, avoid a DC from those dates.
What about cheats. Is there a gameshark or action reply disk for it?
HOW ABOUT A FRIGGING QUESTION MARK IN THE TITLE OR EVEN THE PROVIDED SPACE FOR THE SUB-TITLE SO THAT PEOPLE WILL UNDERSTAND THAT YOU SEEK AN ANSWER AND ARE NOT PROVIDING SOME NEW WAY TO HACK A DREAMCAST ?
ALL IT TAKES IT'S A QUESTION MARK, AND I WILL DECIDE IF TO HELP OR STAY AWAY FROM THE TOPIC. HOW DIFFICULT IT IS ?
Sorry for the rant, but lately I've been tricked several times onto topics with misleading titles, and I'm getting sick of it.
What a waste of a post.
The thread contains the needed information to hack (if you can call it that) a Dreamcast.
So it doesn't matter and yes what a waste of a post.
Yeah there's a gameshark but you need to input codes.
Yup, sure is. I still have my AR disc actually
Phantasy Star Online was incredible if you had an action replay. Ahhhhh, memories.
If you really want to get into Dreamcast hacking you should look into the SD card reader for it it can now play ISO at a decent speed
