You know that custom DreamPi case I gave away exactly one month ago? Well I've decided to turn that into a monthly thing! While I won't be giving away a DreamPi case every month, I will be giving away something cool; whether that be a game, an accessory, a t-shirt, or a number of other possibilities. This month's "something" is a copy of Maximum Pool! Possibly the most underrated online Dreamcast game, Maximum Pool is a ton of fun! I mean, it has a mode with rocket-propelled balls! If that isn't a formula for awesomeness then I don't know what is!

When it comes to getting your Dreamcast online (and playing games online), there are a lot of common myths and misinformation out there. Much of this misinformation originated in old, outdated forum posts and may not apply today. In addition, certain information may only apply to certain connection methods or games. In this article I want to cover some of these myths and clear up any misinformation that you may read online.

I need a broadband adapter to play online.

Not true! While the broadband adapter is one way to get online, it's not the only way and certainly not the best way. Due to the broadband adapter being released late in the Dreamcast's life, it isn't supported by many games. This makes it an inferior connection method to using di...

Do you like free stuff? Do you like things that you don't have to pay for? Do you like receiving things for no charge whatsoever? If you've answered yes to any of those redundant questions then you've come to the right place! Recently I acquired a fantastic piece of modern technology called a "3D Printer" and utilizing this machine I've made a custom (read: modified an existing :-P) case for your Raspberry Pi B+/2/3. It's a nice slim case with the DreamPi logo embossed on the top and comes in either black or white (your choice if you happen to win it). If you'd like to be the owner of this beautiful looking designer case, simply leave a comment below (making sure you enter a valid email address in the "Email Id" box) and...

The Dreamcast is well known for being the first video game console to be internet-ready out-of-the-box thanks to its built-in modem. This was a huge part of Sega's strategy for their little gray box. They wanted to connect gamers all around the world and allow them to play Dreamcast together, regardless of whether they were in the same room or on opposite sides of the planet. While the Dreamcast was first and foremost a gaming machine, Sega wanted it to be even more than that. For many families the Dreamcast provided their first portal to the world wide web. Sega made connecting to the internet a breeze with easy-to-use web browsing software and keyboard and mouse peripherals to make navigation as natural as it would be on a desktop PC.

Shuouma has released the source code for all the servers he's coded to date; this includes the server software for Planet Ring, ChuChu Rocket!, PBA Tour Bowling 2001, Starlancer, The Next Tetris, and Maximum Pool (master server). This software has been released as open source under the MIT license and can be freely used, copied, modified, or distributed. This is a huge step in making sure all the games revived so far will be online for as long as the internet still exists. Long live Dreamcast!


All the source code can be found on the new Server Software page in addition to any other Dreamcast server software and/or source code that has been released to date.

The amount of games that can be played online on our precious Dreamcasts has increased significantly over the last few years. This is due in large part to a man known as Jonas Karlsson, better known as Shuouma around most parts of the internet. Some may call him a magician but I think that may be selling him short. Shuouma is responsible for reviving four online games in just the last year; these games include ChuChu Rocket!, The Next Tetris, PBA Tour Bowling 2001, and Worms World Party. Not only that but he played a huge part in helping Petter3k with Alien Front Online and released improved and more stable servers for Planet Ring and Starlancer. I think it's safe to say that Dreamcast fans owe this man a huge thanks!


So who is Jonas Karlss...
