Or maybe I'll just use a flashcart that reads my microSD, instead of running burned discs.
But then you are not using the disc drive at all so who gives a fuck might as well just jack off to it.
Your reading comprehension fails you.

>But you're not using the disc drive at all
You sound like a cry baby. There's no need to use a disc drive if you run it off a modded Sega Saturn or simply just use Mednafen on your PC.
>reading comprehension
You said "risking" the drive by using CD-Rs on the real hardware is worse than emulation, what is he failing to comprehend?

Is there a self-booting cdi of codebreaker, or do I really have to burn 2 CDs?

Doing this to play jap imports on my pal dreamcast. I keep hearing codebreaker is the best choice.
13 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Somewhat unrelated.

When my brother was in college (and me in high school), his rate would often burn us copies of Dreamcast games.

How was this accomplished? We hadn't modified our Dreamcast in any way
The same way it's accomplished right now. MIL-CD compatibility on the console and CDI disk images.

AdamKoralik explained it pretty well, if you don't him waffling on a bit.

Basically, Sega's GDI technology was unironically unbreakable (or at least at the time it was). People couldn't understand how to crack it, but what they did find was the Dreamcast accepted another form of media called "MIL-CD" which was used for Karaoke games in Japan.

Because of the fact MIL-CD's were basically just CD's. It meant that you could put Dreamcast game data on a CD and the Dreamcast would recognize it as an actual game.

Sega did something about it because if you own a Dreamcast made after October 2000 I think, then they don't read CD's anymore. But Model 0's and 1's do.

These days I would try to avoid playing games on your Dreamcast with a CD since it can burn out the lasers pretty badly, mine died last year after 16 years of service, so I bought another and have been using Dreamshell w/SD Card reader to play games on it. Works pretty well, you can play Shenmue 2 in English perfectly.

Adam Koralik can scarcely describe where his arsehole is in relation to his elbow.

I refuse to watch his videos because they almost invariably just make me want to put my fist through the screen.
I used to watch Adam Koralik videos and thought they were quite informative.

What are the major lies that he has fed me?

Best retro baseball game and why is it this?
10 replies and 6 images omitted. Click here to view.
Because most retro baseball games were made by Japanese developers who focused on the fun factor rather than realism.

Western devs generally lack creative talent, and that is why they make realistic simulations.

In the arcade version of RBI baseball, Mark McGwire stats show him with 62 homeruns, one more than the record of 61 by Roger Maris The game was released in 1986, 12 years before he actually broke the single season record for homeruns.

The "Yeah, thought as much" comment, Anon, do you not pay attention to what you type?
By the way, covering your ears and going "LALALA I CAN'T HEAR YOU" over how a fucking comment is presented is proof enough you're just here to suck yourself off. What, can't handle that you were playing a game wrong so you decide to nitpick responses?
I think there is like 4 issues but I liked the more "adult" jokes and art.
I like the pokemon games and the digimon anime.

>PSX literally destroyed everyone

12 replies omitted. Click here to view.
I think they just changed their mind, aborted the post and changed it, but it was too late.

Also losing third party support was a big hit for Nintendo they STILL haven't fully recovered from 20 years later. They're SLOWLY rebuilding their partnerships with third party developers like Bethesda.
This is true
This is also true

People do forget sometimes how fucking crazy meteoric both the rise and fall of the Dreamcast was. The thing had 636 games despite being truly active only for about 2 1/2 years.
>Underage literally destroyed /vr/
Who can say why the writers of OPs magazine failed to account for this
PS2 wasn't even on the horizon yet, there was a brief window where the Dreamcast and other such tech like the M2 console (which never came out) were in the spotlights.
Its almost like you were not around for it...

Is it worthwhile to get into original hardware if I live in a PAL country that itself is already isolated from other countries (Australia?)

>buying used locally
small population means small used market, and things cost more than they should. Also 50Hz performance to worry about, but supposedly the N64 had some good PAL conversions?

>buying from USA
sounds like the ideal option, just need to get the correct power adapter right?

>buying from Japan
should be like USA but cheaper, but obviously limited to simple and not text heavy games.

Yuropoor here.
My TV supports PAL60 and NTSC. Also RGB over SCART. So it's really not a problem what region the console is.
Not that many good games suffer from slowdown but ideally you'll want American or Jap consoles. Jap may be a slight problem in that some games have both the English and Japanese text in the same rom and display it depending on the region of the console. Mostly 8-bit games do this and they are never text heavy. Easy enough to get a step down convertor online, maybe even ask about at Dick Smith's.

The exception is the Dreamcast. PAL DC's are great and almost all good games support 60hz. So just get an Aussie one on the cheap.
Well lah dee dah. I bet it's even color. Why do are you eurofags assume we're a second world country with all these newfangled high falutin things just because we use PAL?
there was a good game for a good price and p. reasonable shipping for being on the other end of our flat disc earth

>They're like American resellers, only ten times more insufferable and self-entitled.
see I didn't know this before. the one I talked to was a real salty cunt about the negative review. not very professional tbhfam
>second world
Why would we assume you were aligned to the soviet bloc during the cold war?

What are you, some sort of fucking Galah? And don't you dare come the fucking raw prawn with me again or I'll take you to the fucking cleaners.
