Today I would like to bring to your attention a major issue facing our world today... the crazy number of people that haven't set their Dreamcast Now username! Are you one of these people? If you are, let me ask you one question: Do you want to continue being a nobody? Just some schmoe that plays Dreamcast games online and doesn't have the courage to shout their name out to the world? I implore you, don't be a nobody! Be a somebody! Be anybody! I don't care! It's time to tell the world who you are!


Alright, so with that inspirational speech out of the way, let's get down to the brass tacks. How do you set your Dreamcast Now username? Well it's rather simple. The first thing you need to do is find out your DreamPi's IP address. To do this, simply plug your Pi into a monitor or TV, wait for it to boot up, and look for the line that says "My IP address is XXX.XXX.X.XXX".

Once you have the IP address, head on over to the Dreamcast Now Configuration page, enter the IP address, and hit the 'Detect' button. Now you can enter your username and set an avatar. For the avatar you'll need to sign up for a free Gravatar account, upload an avatar, and enter the email address you used to sign up. Once you've entered your username and Gravatar email, hit the 'Update Profile' button.


Congratulations! You're now a somebody! Now go and spread the word! Tell everybody to be somebody!

@Stw101 I already have a DreamPi video tutorial. Just go to the Connection Guide and click on the video tutorial link next to DreamPi.

@Austin I hope so too! There are over 100 players on Dreamcast Now that don't have a name. Kazade is going to remedy this slightly by hiding players that haven't been online in a long time. I'm sure most of the unnamed players aren't that active.

I hope this helps people make an username, I don't like seeing all the no names
