    What a smooth console! Soul calibur looks as good as any of my ps2 games imo. Crazy taxi 2 rocks as does all the emulators you can play on it! If the gp32 was a console then this would be it. :)

    I'll say it first, but there's probably others here who'll agree : Dreamcast rules!

    100% conversion of Marvel vs Capcom is my main reason for owning a DreamCast.

    I even have 2 dreamcasts!
    I got mine for shenmue 1 & 2, Crazy Taxi, Soul Calibur & of course Dead Or Alive!
    A new c64 emulator came out not soon after the successfull frodo on the gp32 came out. Virtual keyboard for emulators is something that I saw first on the GP32 and later on other plaforms.
    Cheers, Mark

    Has anyone checked out the DIVX player on the DC yet? I have to say it's quite impressive, exceeds VHS quality anyway when watching a ripped AVI or something.

    I think a while ago, someone figured out a way of jumping the copy protection in software, WinCE and the fairly simple architecture of the machine then allowed coders to start creating bootable discs for just about anything.

    Check out www.dcemulation.com for more info.

    Hey, congratulations!

    I have one too, it's actually the ONLY console I have that plays 3D games, and it's great!

    I'm getting a lot of fun out of the racing games right now, Wacky Wheels and Hydro Thunder, although the RPG Grandia II was AMAZING while I was still playing it.

    Unfortunately most of the VG stores in Toronto don't have a lot of used DC games anymore... either they're not accepting them for some reason, or DC users are keeping them to themselves. :(

    P.S. Stay AWAY from D2! (Unless you are Japanese because apparently the Japanese like that kind of thing... :unsure: )
    There is a cut scene after EVERY tiny action you take! Grrr.... :angry:

    RIGHT BEHIND YOU! Scary, huh?
    I have and love my dreamcast. I used to play it as much as my ps2, but then I finally started getting some decent games for my ps2. I love the dreamcast for its beautiful genesis emulation. There's also a great ZDoom port for it, it works great and looks awesome. It just feels so cool to play a game like that on the DC.

    Yeah i watched a ripped bruce almighty last night. i cant figure out how to centre the screen tho :S.

    Edit: Also, if you want you can use your gp encoded movies if they are divx 4.12 with mp3 sound. Of course the dreamcast can handle 24 fps with much higher bitrate (had no probs with 550kbs so far).
