Video Game Emulation Wiki

The Dreamcast console

The Dreamcast is a 6th generation console released by Sega in November 1998 in Japan and later in 1999 in other territories. Naomi is an arcade system board, which is very similar to the Dreamcast. Some Dreamcast emulators have support for it as well. Atomiswave is an arcade system board that is based upon Naomi.

Dreamcast emulation is okay, but nothing great. Some games work well, but many have problems and glitches.
