For some years now, it has been possible to play all your old favorite games from systems like the NES, Master System, Super Nintendo, Gameboy etc. on the Dreamcast. The software used, as you probably already know, is called an Emulator, using Emulators on the Dreamcast is fun, unlike playing your old favorites on your PC, it feels more real sitting on your couch in front of your big screen TV.

There are several ways of burning your Dreamcast disc, but most of the time, and especially for newbies this is not easy. The easiest thing is to burn a premade CD Image.

Here is where DC Evolution comes in...

We make the CD Images and include all the freeware roms we can get our hands on. These freeware roms are mainly games and demos made by home coders, but commercial games that the gamestudio has released to the public for free are also included in our emulation collections. Most of the time, these freeware roms feature some very good playable games, the ideal start for you with emulation on the Dreamcast!

When you want to go a step further and use your own (commercial) roms, DC Evolution also makes it very easy for you. You already have the CD image, so the only thing you need to make is a romdisk. With every emulator where this is possible, we have included detailed instructions on how to make a romdisk. Our first emulation CD Images have been released under the name - Dream Emulation Project (DEP), only the best roms that are working with the emulator are featured in these CD Images. Check out the releases at the menu to the left, then see the individual CD Image pages for more info.
