    Well, here are the pics, as promised.

    Woot! Here's what we saw upon booting the Dreamcast. So far so good.

    Ah, I see this game is approved by SEGA ;)


    Then you get this clever menu

    Loading, dudes, SHHH

    Could it be? COULD IT BE???!

    Uh, dude? *point* We burned it with 6.6.1.4, and as you can see by my massive screenshot post, it justworks (tm). A fresh install of Nero, default settings.

    VGA Support - At the Start Up Menu press A I think (Red Button), it sets up the game in auto detect... so it should theoretically work, did it screw the monitor before or after the menu?

    EDIT: it's an image problem... it only works on certain versions of nero (not sure why) so I'm uploading the CDI image file

    so, if you've burnt a coaster, don't try again until the other file is uploaded


    EDIT 2:
    Ok, I've managed to create a new Nero Image file which can be mounted in Daemon tools (the old one couldn't) so I have a feeling this image file will work for everyone with Nero

    TAxman: Pressing A didn't work, the screen just goes black and nothing happens.

    Crap.

    My DC always worked, but now it's broken. HOW CAN THIS HAPPEN TO ME!? Some sort of problem with the video, all I get is half a screen of black lines.

    ;_;


    Oh well.

    k, I burnt the new image with Nero 6.6.0.13

    Now, I get the Dreamcast bios screen, and it makes that obserdly loud disk reading sound, but when it fades out as if it were to run the game, It just brings me to the menu screen. Now here's the wierd part. When I select play, it doesn't tell me "Insert a game disk" or anything. It brings me back to the bios screen and just repeats the whole scenario.

    Possibly an error in the new image, that wasn't in the old one?

    Hmm, tried running this in Chankast, but the game froze the emu right when the Sega creen came up. Don't know if it's a problem with the game or with my system config. Can someone else check chankast for me, or will I be forced to purchase a Dreamcast :P

    That was cool, but it wasn't worth six CD-Rs. D:

    It worked very well on my DC. It?s a fantastic job, Taxman. I?m only sad Egg Garden isn?t on the demo... but was awesome to play this game on my Dreamcast.

    *now waiting fo RS PC and RSDK* =P
