    DC Dreamcast Info topic

    Since NesterDC is an application that runs on a Dreamcast, I think it would be good to add a Dreamcast info topic. Maybe someone pins this.

    About NesterDC SE

    As you may have noticed, NesterDC is no longer being updated. Scherzo, a very well known Dreamcast developer has released NesterDC-SE, an optimized version of NesterDC.
    NesterDC SE is better than NesterDC.

    Other emulators for Dreamcast

    If you are looking for other emulators for your Dreamcast, you should check out sites like DCEmulation or Dreamcast-Scene. They contain informations about emulators for many different systems and other applications that run on the Dreamcast. They also serve a nice and big community. Most of the Dreamcast developers release their applications on DCEmulation.org.

    That looks cool , I'll give it a try. I like PC emulators and snazzy front ends it's just a lot of set up.

    The reason I think Nester DC :SE is the best NES emulator is simplicity of use. Some times I just want to play a game with a friend and the Dreamcast could be off in a closet (not that mine ever is!) and it's still easier to get a NES game going with out any hassle.

    Just hook up the system, plug in two controllers , pop the disk in and your off; playing a console game the way it was meant to be played on a TV with two controllers in hand. It just works. To top the experience off is very adequate visual candy that help you appreciate your collection.

    If I wanted to do that on a PC I'd have to crawl around to the back of the system to plug in two controllers (I have USB but love the old Microsoft sidewinder six button for any thing pre-analog stick) set up the controls for player two, set the TV as my primary monitor, then start the emulator. If I want to change games I have to get up go back to the computer. Not to mention getting all the visual files and setting them up.

    The Dreamcast may lack filters but the Wii doesn't use them either for emulated games or ak spray pattern. It can run them full speed, and have key combinations for quick load and quick save.

    TLR It gets the job done and allows you to play NES on the TV with little hassle and easy game switching. Very nice presentation with out set up needed.
