Question It's been 19 years now...

...is your Dreamcast still thinking?

I still have it somewhere. Not hooked up, though.

Such an amazing system and the reason why I'm posting here.

Many of my retro consoles are still hooked up to a 27" CRT at my parents' house. I play them when I visit for holidays. My nephews always ask to play the PS2 but when by myself I always fire up the DC.

I still remember the all-night PSO marathons with Game Rogue, Raist, DS, Mord, Packrat, Ratpack, Driver-X, etc.

The sheer volume of loot strewn across the lobby floor was hilarious.

Does anyone have a modded DC?

They have mods for HDMI input, SD card readers, better fans, overclocked, etc.

Pretty expensive, though. Would be cool to hook a DC up to my monitor via HDMI.

Someday I would like to own a Dreamcast with an SD card reader or some other way to play games without the disk. I think USB and IDE HDD are options too.

A wireless controller would be nice. Right now the cheapest option that I found is $170 + $15 shipping but within the past year I saw a couple announcements of bluetooth controllers with a dongle that were in development. I'll wait for those.

I would like to try DreamPi. It lets you connect your Dreamcast to a Raspberry Pi to play games online. I figured there would just be a bunch of empty games but their online community seems active and they plan certain games for certain nights in advance. I hear that PSO is the most active game.

There's also an updated model of the VGA>HDMI cable coming out soon which is supposed to fix issues with the current one.

After looking up some cool mods like DCHDMI, GDEMU, DreamPSU, upgraded Noctua fan, broadband adapter, etc. I realized it's too expensive to get all this packaged with one console. I checked an ebay listing that just had the DCHDMI and a nice 3D printed SD card holder with GDEMU installed and it sold for $400! The fan is cheap but the broadband adapter is hard to find and would run another $100+ and only works on a few games anyway.

Yup, it's kinda crazy how many games they have working:

The broadband adapter is not really worth it for the asking price of $100+ online because only Phantasy Star Online, Quake III Arena, and Toy Racer are compatible with it which is a shame.

But man, it would be really cool to play some of my old favorites again. PSO, 4x4 Evo, Alien Front Online, NFL 2K2, NBA 2K2, WSB 2K2, Worms World Party. Such good times playing those games and competing on the ladders for Dricas. lol

We have two Dreamcasts in our house, although only one of them is actually hooked up at the moment. I bought one two days after the system launched, and my wife (girlfriend at the time) played mine and went out and bought her own a couple months later... to this day it's the one and only console she's ever purchased.
