Hey,
Ive just signed up to the site so not to sure how to go bout this kinda stuff. Im really into retro gaming and with payday coming up soon (Thank God!:) ) a new (or old :confused: ) console is on the agenda. The console being the Sega Dreamcast, my question is what connections are on the back of the console??

Did Sega take the N64 Route or the PS2 (Scart) route ??

Any help would be great cheers.

I'm pretty sure that the N64 cables work fine. (DC/N64 output to s-video, scart etc)

Into them...I've been in the business for 15 years...Built 2 and bought an original arcade M/C and a jamma super-gun with the mortal kombat series.
No room for a new project so i'm going the Mame route via PC and making a custom Arcade controller to suit.
Probably in the MK series mould with the run button included.

As cool as a cab with proper controls is I think having my pc hooked up to my projector and Dreamcast arcade stick is pretty much unbeatable.

I've got a Jamma cab that I currently run MAME on (but it's a JAMMA to PC conversion so it still plays JAMMA boards). I also have had a PS2, Dreamcast and a Megadrive running on it through building 'looms' to connect the consoles to the JAMMA connector.

Playing games like VF4 evo, Soul Calibur 1 & 2, Power Stone 1&2, Gauntlet 4, streets of rage, PES etc. through the consoles on the cab is great! I did seem to fry my sync splitter chip though through playing 60htz PS2 games on the cab though. I replaced the chip and stuck to 50htz games and it was ok after that. Not sure if it was the constant 50-60htz swapping or just a dofgy chip that was to blame though.
