Dreamcast Tutorial?

Is there a tutorial that describes how exactly I can get my LucasArts games working on my dreamcast?

This site should pretty much sort you out.

Or, if you want to do it the easy way, download the nero image and burn it using Nero Burning Rom (Shame on you if you don't have it, you'll find a 30 day trial here).

Once you've burned the image to disc, simply stick it in your Dreamcast, let it load up and then either swap the disc for the game of your choice, or mess about with the demos that are included.

Be warned, though - It's a little stuttery on the Dreamcast, and some games may refuse to work.

Yeah thats what I thought, but nero gives me an "unexpected exception" error when I try to burn the image

Okay, I almost give up. Neither of the .nrg files will run and I have no idea what the hell I'm supposed to do. I'd be very grateful if someone could offer some advice since I'm really curious to see what LEC games look like on the DC.

I just checked, and the image burned and worked fine for me. Maybe you need to upgrade nero, or perhaps there's a fault with your writer? You should be using the "Disc-At-Once" method.

If you like, I'll send you some bins & cues or a clone cd image file.

I've just tried for a half hour to get it working, and I cannot for the life of me get nero to burn the .nrg. If you could send some bins/cues/clone cd (whatevers best!) I'd be more than grateful, thanks!

Thanks, the clone cd works like a charm! On Sam & Max the vox cut out a bit, kinda like the old DMA problem, but fate was fine.

Thanks ever so much!

No problem. You can also replace the ScummVM disc with a game CD once it's loaded, you know.
