Dreamcast advice?

Recommended Posts

Once I have my pc back up and running I want to give dreamcast emulation a go.

Reicast seems to be the go to?

Gdi is the preferred format?

 

Anything else to suggestion?

I used NullDC with Maximus arcade years ago if I remember correctly it worked ok.

Gdi = full untouched dump

Cdi = dump that may or may not have been downsampled to fit on a regular cd

They are extensions so just look inside the archives.

So is Gdi usually the preferred format for emulators than? 

Should one grab cdi copies as well just incase they run better in certain instances? 

Lastly do you know if there is gdi dumps out there of the majority of US realeases?

Demul is your best bet for Dreamcast.  Unlike NullDC, Demul has actually had development activity within the last 6 years.  And if you like Naomi or Atomiswave games (visually stunning in a MAME cab), Demul is the only way to go.

on pc for me the best is demul and for android reicast bat not the one from the store, the latest build fix a lot of problems, and always use gdi version converted to chd to save space

Use Demul as your first choice emu and Null DC as a second choice if the game has trouble with Demul. In general, Demul now has much better emulation of the Dreamcast.

Demul is what you need, as others have stated before me, it simply is a lot more compatible (except for games that run CE, which aren't really that good anyway).

Either Demul or the Reicast libretro core on RetroArch.
