View Full Version : Will there ever be a Dreamcast emulator
August 7th, 2001, 07:40
this is gonna sound very funny, but when bleem! released bleemcast i first thought it was a dreamcast emulator! :emb: but it was just a way to play GT2 and MGS in dreamcast......
so i was wondering, will there ever be a working dreamcast emulator?

Sure.... but don't expect it anytime soon, and you'd probably need some pretty serious hardware to run it on....
maybe... a K9-5.5Ghz + GeForce 5.... :D

There are Dreamcast emulation projects already.. Dreamer (which runs one commercial game in the current private builds), Dreamemu (runs a bunch of demos), and boob!cast (runs a bunch of demos).
The last one is being written by an old acquaintence of mine, so I'm especially interested in it's progress.
I doubt we'll see anything highly usable for at least another year..

how about this "Nightmare" emulator, which can be found in
has anyone tried this out? i dont have the hardware for this emulator, so i haven't really tried.

Sorry to disappoint you....
Plus, there's no way someone could create a near-perfect DC emulation in the year 1999.... heck, it even took us THIS long to get a near perfect PSX emulation. :D
PS: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

well i wasnt really pinning my hopes on it. :) 2004, perhaps? or maybe never. :( but that's unlikely.....
