Is there any knowledge of the Sega CD myth?

Postby matmico399 » January 8th, 2016, 12:12 am

I recently got a Dreamcast console. There are people online that say a Dreamcast or Sega Saturn can play Sega CD games. 9/10 people say no. But there are a few out there who insist it is true if you work with it, messing with some stuff. I miss my Sega CD games I played in my early 20's. There is even a Youtube video about it. Any truth to it fellow gamers?

There are a lot of emulators for the Dreamcast but I can't seem to Google up a Sega CD one. I did however stumble upon a freakin' Saturn emulator for the DC. I would never have thought such a thing was possible but it exists(games are not remotely playable tho)

Apparently there is a functional Playstation emulator for the Dreamcast, but the Saturn is more complex and trickier to emulate.

That one is actually not that surprising. There was PS1 emulation on the Dreamcast while both systems were still alive. A pity Sony buried bleem with lawsuits.

I can remember buying bleemcast for Gran Turismo 2 when it came out. I was very proud of playing GT2 in hi rez! Pretty lame in hindsight now that we can emulate all these games for free. From memory though it emulated GT2 pretty flawlessly. Just to bad it could only emulate 1 game per specialised copy of bleem while PC bleem worked with hundreds of titles with varying degrees of succes.
