    Im in the process of building a games room. Ive noticed just how cheap a second hand dreamcast can be picked up for and was concidering picking up 4 to set up a LAN with a tv screen in each corner of the room does anyone know how you would do it?

    there's no point mate, no games would recognise the 4 consoles for games to share. Them console also uses non-standard link leads and getting a hub with these would be impossible.
    However if you are looking at using more than 2 players then you'll need to use the online options of the dreamcast (dreamcast.onlineconsoles.com for help), however you'll need to use a dial-up connection or buy broadband connections (at about £100 a go).
