All right, I've fallen into /vr/ memes and bought the ultimate gaming system (guess which).
Should I get Ethernet adapter?
Your favorite games?
Also, thread.

Cool, it's almost like an upgrade so your Dreamcast can play DVDs

Just don't buy Shenmue. That game is insufferable shit garbage for degenerate dumpster people. Get Jet Set Radio.

>Just don't buy Shenmue
It's too late, I bought the console with backuped Shenmue.

Shut yor mauth, Shenmue (and escpecially 2) are better games than Jet Set Radio

Literally no point.

>> No.3412819

Lol Shenmue is marginally better than being kicked in the face by a horse.

>> No.3412824

An ethernet adapter will cost you more than a phone line emulator, which will let you use all of your analog modems on your modern network. Get a VGA adapter if you haven't yet. Also, comparing Jet Set Radio to Shenmue is dumb.

Elaborate please
I don't know what's that.

>> No.3413220

A phone line emulator is a piece of hardware that can trick analog modems into thinking they're connected to an analog phone line when they're really just connected to each other.

>Jet Set Radio

Archaic piece of trash. Future is superior.

>> No.3414224

Oh I agree wholeheartedly! I'd take Future any day! It's exponentially better! But we're recommending Dreamcast games here.

>> No.3414232

Future has shit level design. See the entire pyramid chapter.

It's weird how you can have an opinion that's objectively wrong.

Im confused

Don't buy bad games.

Buy good games.

It's literally that simple.

>> No.3414296

Agree with you with everything except the graphics.

>> No.3414583

So, a regular modem will work?
By the way, does anybody ever play Dreamcast over Internet?

>> No.3414636

Not OP, but is Skies of Arcadia actually worthwhile for the asking price? I'm kinda iffy on most longform RPG's these days, is the plot cohesive at least?

>> No.3414664

You can do that with normal modems dipshit, how old are you, 16?

>> No.3414685

No need for namecalling buddy, he probably was only suggesting an easy method.

as for >>3413091
you can also just hook it straight into your computer without an intermediary by following this guide: http://www.dreamcast-scene.com/guides/pc-dc-server-guide-win7/

There a few other ones floating around for older OS's, I personally have mine set up on a win98 machine.

>> No.3416420

I burned a disc from an image, and it failed to be verified. What do?

>> No.3416478

Kill yourself nigger, you already have the Shenmue thread to shitpost in.

>> No.3416563

why can't he just play it on the PC? the PC port is good, and it's much, much more confortable to play on it.

>> No.3416723

16 year olds don't know what a dial tone or ring voltage are and neither do you. Just because a Dreamcast can be tricked into connecting without them doesn't mean other devices can.

>> No.3416736

What can you do with an internet connected DC in 2016?

>> No.3416743

Play Phantasy Star Online which tbqh is better on GC or PC. My characters from back in the day are long gone from my shitty multi-page memory card.

There are Quake 3 servers as well but again probably better on PC. I must say even though I love my DC, I've been gaming on my retro gaming PC a lot more. Probably just because I missed out on so many of those games back in the day.

>> No.3416750

Get Shenmue 1 undubbed and Shenmue 2 PAL. Best voices, english subs.

Don't get the BBA, only a limited number of games are compatible with it.

Get El Bucanero's VMU backup CD.

>> No.3417206

Memory card seems to work but it doesn't appear in memcard menu. What do?

>> No.3417232

It's worth it. Then again, not like there's much to choose from with DC's JRPG library. And yes, the story is the game's strongest point.

>> No.3419073

Remember that there is a better GC version.

>> No.3419130

GC has worse audio and DC will look way better provided he has a VGA box. Plus the DC version's DLC is easily obtainable these days if you have a blank CD-R lying around. The only matter left is the encounter rates, but I never found them to be that bad.

>> No.3419335

>DC will look way better provided he has a VGA box
What if he plays the GC version in 480p in a Wii?

Stop undermining his self-validation.

Turns your computer into a ISP to bridge your cable/DSL or whatever to a modem.

There are some no effort solutions people have been doing with the raspberry pi.

A broadband adapter is mad cool though. But overall online isn't going to exactly be that exciting for the most part.

>> No.3419608


I have a hacked Xbox and can't fucking find a iso of this game. Literally the only reason I bought this Xbox.....

What happened to Xbox piracy? Is it really only on private trackers now?

>> No.3419735

How can I find a ISO for Metal Wolf Chaos but you can't find one for JSRF?

>> No.3419978

If your GDROM optical drive goes, replace it with the USB emulator.

You can load your isos onto a usb stick and play them on the dreamcast

>> No.3420025


Where did you find it?

I'm amazed I haven't found a working torrent or link.

>> No.3420028

I have a Dreamcast with the stand. Jealous?

Got a guide? My DC's optical drive is in rough shape

I was only asking about the dreamcast version, I don't own a nintendo home console past the SNES.
