    Old Sega Dreamcast

    I just pulled my old Sega Dreamcast out of the closet. This box went through hell and back. I did so many projects and mods with this box its not funny.

    My question: Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should do to put this box to use? Any sites with Dreamcast Hacks, Mods, and Projects?

    If not, is there any more sources for Dreamcast ISO's?

    I'm going to put mine to use. I have the instructions for the linux router/firewall and a few other mods. If anyone else pulls out their Dreamcast and decides not to turn it into something else and just wants to play games on it. There are a lot of chats on IRC with Dreamcast back ups. There are some really nice Emu's that play on Dreamcast also. I also have the Dreamcast image if anyone needs to bring their system back to a operating dreamcast.

    Man I forgot all about my DC, it sucked so bad except for Quake 3, but I guess I leanred all the levels like the back of my hand and now I kick ass in college at it.

    Here's a cool page that has a few links to sites about modding your DC. Good luck!

    Now, that was what I was looking for. Some great information and a selection of projects. Keep up the good submissions.

    Sega stopped making consoles, was it because they bet the farm on the Dreamcast project?
