  1. Nice. It’s pretty cool that Crazy Viking didn’t make this port, but let some really talented fans of their game have at it and do it right. Now all I need to to is see if one of the DC’s here buried in a bin is still functioning. They’re all older models and should run this just fine.

    • YEAH! Why am I not surprised that you’ve got lots of love for CRT’s? 😀

      I recently got myself a cap kit for my Neo Geo Wells Gardner k7000 CRT. I still have to find a new flyback as well. I want it running 100% and looking like it’s brand new!

      I also have a beautiful 32″ SONY Trinitron XBR CRT for my retro consoles. Got it for $50 on Kijiji and it’s like new.

      • Those XBR’s are great CRT’s….when they work. Ive had a lot of bad luck with Sony HD CRT’s but its probably just my luck. I know there are very high quality when they work.

      • I can’t get it to work. I use BootDreams and burn the Volgarr CDi into a disc but it just won’t work. Maybe I have one of those later mae models that won’t boot CDR?

        • Yes, it’s possible that your Dreamcast might not be able to play CD-Rs but here are a few things to try.

          1) Make sure to use a CD-R and not a re-writable CD (CD-RW)
          2) Download the free software IMGBurn to write the image. http://www.imgburn.com. I believe this is the software they tested with. But I’ve read that BootDreams should be OK too.
          3) Download the full .cdi image which includes the dummy file (padding) from here http://dreamcast-talk.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=83933#p83898. When unzipped this volgarrbig.cdi file should ~771.9 MB.

          Hopefully that will work!

          • Ah, that might be the problem! The file was too small in size, it must’ve lacked the dummy file. I downloaded the one from the “official” DC Volgarr page. I’ll try this out! Thanks!

          • I’m not getting it to work with BootDreams and that file with the dummy file (700 megs). I’m trying to use Imgburn but every time I try to use it AVG Antivirus warns me for a threat… And that’s no matter where I download it from.
