Kazade has released version 1.7 of the DreamPi software which includes several fixes, improvements, and updates. This release adds support for the Raspberry Pi Zero W and the recently released 3 B+. Additionally, 1.7 includes support for the upcoming NFL 2K and NBA 2K series (No they're not online yet! Stay tuned!). You can snag the new release from the Downloads page.


P.S. Huge thanks to Shuouma for finding a fix for the Wi-Fi issue that was plaguing 1.7 for the longest time!

A mere month after the revival of Ooga Booga, another online multiplayer game has been brought back to life thanks to Shuouma! This time it’s World Series Baseball 2K2. If you’re a fan of "America's Favorite Pastime", this is definitely one you’re going to want to try out. The game plays great online, although there is a delay when it comes to batting but you’ll adjust to it fairly quickly. Overall it’s a really fun experience and should really please sports fans. Shu and I played an epic first game on the new server. I didn't include the entire game in the announcement video but if you wish to watch the entire hour-long game, check out the video below. Without spoiling anything, there were some really exciting moments and a great...

Today is a momentous occasion and one I've been waiting for for a long time now! Wait for it.... Ooga Booga has been brought back online thanks to the one and only Shuouma! Speaking as someone who is probably the world's #1 Ooga Booga fan (I even have what is likely the only signed copy of the game by the original development team), this makes me extremely happy. Even though the game is fully playable offline, it's still amazing to be able to play it with Dreamcast fans across the globe. The frantic, boar-riding, shrunken-head-throwing, spell-casting, ridiculousness that is Ooga Booga is a treat to play online and can be absolute mayhem with 4 players. If your Dreamcast is online (as it should be), this is an absolute must-play game. Althou...

The great Shuouma has done it again! POD SpeedZone (or POD II if you're in PAL territories) has been resurrected from the online multiplayer graveyard! Having the online functionality restored for this game is fantastic as it was designed from the ground up with online multiplayer in mind. In fact, POD has little in the way of offline content. The single player "Arcade" mode is essentially nothing more than single practice races with no real objective. Going online is where the game really shines. Not only do you have access to more gameplay modes, but you also have an additional track and extra vehicles unlocked after jumping online for the first time. I guess you could say we can once again play POD SpeedZone in the way that Ubi...

Shuouma has launched an updated version of the Monaco Grand Prix Online server which adds Classification (rankings) in addition to several bug fixes and improvements. Here's the full list of changes:


  • Host Switching - If the host quits or gets disconnected, another player will be chosen as host and the game will continue.
  • Classification - The in-game rankings now work. Classification only for now. Hall of Fame is still being worked on.
  • Championship Points - Points from Championship races will now be recorded.
  • Record Database - Lap and track records will be recorded to a database from now on. These records will show up in the Hall of Fame once implemented.
  • Player Timeout Removed - Players will no longer be kicked if the server doesn't re...

Shuouma is back with another online game resurrected! This time it's Monaco Grand Prix Online (or Monaco Grand Prix: Racing Simulation 2: Online if you want the ridiculously long official title). This is a version of Monaco Grand Prix that was released exclusively in Europe and added online multiplayer. It's actually a very rare game so you may need to break out the CD-R spindle if you want to give this one a go.


The game features 17 tracks, two modes, and supports up to six players. The modes include both single race and championship. The latter will likely appeal most to hardcore fans of the game as it can take up to an hour to complete. The game also has online leaderboards so if competing for the fastest time on any given track is your t...

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...

Is there a better way to start off the new year than another online Dreamcast game being resurrected? Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, Worms World Party is online once again thanks to the amazing Mr. Karlsson! Efforts to try and get this game back online have been going on for a long time now. Just getting to the game lobby proved to be fairly simple but actually being able to start a game was something else entirely. Fortunately we have a genius in out midst in the form of Shuouma who managed to finally track down the final piece of the puzzle. The game is now fully playable online and it's awesome! I must once again give a huge thanks to Jonas for reviving yet another piece of online gaming history! Who knows what the rest of 2017 wi...
