Question about Sega Dreamcast Console

Some Dreamcast games won't play

I have about 40 games on my PAL dreamcast, some of which are NTSC, I have the boot CD for the NTSC games and it all works fine. The problem i have is with some of the PAL games i have, there are 5 games which i am having trouble with, 2 of them won't load at all (the Dreamcast tries to load the game but it just goes back to the dreamcast load screen, like there is no cd in the drive). 1 game will only play when i put in the NTSC boot cd, despite it being a PAL cd. and the other 2 games load as far as the games title screen, but as soon as i try to play the first level, it stops the game and goes back to the dreamcast load screen. there are no scratches on the cds and the cds are clean. why is it just these 5 games i am having trouble with.

I NEED A SECRET CODE 4 KOF 2002 I REALLY VERY NEED IT


There aren't any codes for the game however there are gamesaves you can download and instructions for unlocking extras here: http://www.gamefaqs.com/dreamcast/916700-the-king-of-fighters-2002/saves
If the system you have is a US model and the game is an import and not working you may need to download a UTOPIA boot disc file like the one here: http://www.dcisozone.com/downloads/231/Utopia-Boot-Disk.html
Then burn it to a disc using nero or another good burning software and enjoy.
Happy Gaming!

Hi,

Looks like your Dreamcast can't read the game properly either due to damaged disc or the dreamcast GD rom is not working properly. try recalibrating the GD rom using this guide: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HTMSRfEqWAU

It will freeze in the middle of game play a some games not play


I believe your device is overheating, you need to make sure that the Dreamcast is well ventilated, don't set it on a carpet or enclosure. BLow any dust from the unit, pull the Dreamcast out of whatever nook it is sitting in, and set it on a flat surface like a hard cover book, etc. See if your issues resolve themselves.

Freezing problem with Games


The Dreamcast is no longer supported because it was to easy to copy the games, but there are still a loyal few who keep the scene alive. I have no idea how much you want to put into fixing the problem, but the only way to fix your problem is flashing the Dreamcast BIOS.

Modification 101:

The Dreamcast is basically a computer; with the right programming you can do anything; and having a Dreamcast Keyboard is nice.
