    I have the Innovation Converter which came with the European Shenmue II. They work just fine. I'd just go ahead and get the DC-X/Innovation Converter, cause their easy to use and no installation.

    I agree, Modding can only decrease the life of you mahine, and the Dreamcast will be hard to replace due to it's limited run. :( And it has several games that are still worth playing. :D

    Thats the reason why I'm asking this cuz I'm ordering the European Shenmue 2. I just happened to see that DC-X on ebgames.com. I'm gonna have to change my order with NCSX and drop the mod chip now. Thanks for the help guys.

    My friend was having some school problems and his parents were making him get rid of some of his consoles (he got to keep the games, i dont know why). and i bought that off of him, and a sega sturn too, really cheap.

    Gameshark works as a boot disc also. I used it to play my import copy of Sega GT. Which reminds me...I still need to get Headhunter. It's supposed to be one of the best
    Dreamcast games ever.

    for my dreamcast I used a boot disk called utopia in order to play my (pirate) games and import games to play eventually the pirate games came with self booting mods which made eventually even made the boot disk usless (unless you wanted to play import or orlder pirate games) this is what happens when a consoles operating system is made by microsoft which is easy to hack and pirate ultimatly destroying the dreamcast

    Headhunter is coming out on the PS2 pretty soon. And in all honesty it's not that good. :(

    thats if you conpare it to something like mgs2 which will thrash it in everyway on the otherhand I think that headhunter is on the same level as syphon filter which for me in my opinion makes them both very good games

    Actually I didn't like MGS2 all that much, in fact I didn't even bother to finish it. :(

    Yeah, but you need to connect to the internet with your Dreamcast, you have to convert the file to a pal save:D

    Here's the exact method:shenmue_us_uk_save.txt

    Just click on the save convert FAQ

    The memory car that lets you connect to the internet

    Also, One of the free ISP's (Juno, Netzero, Bluelight, etc..) Can get you online with the Dreamcast. juyst run a search for it on google

    Yes, to get send yourself the save, to convert it.

    You *might* be able to do it with one of the pc>dc cords, dunno if it would work though.

    You can also skip the file converting, and just download a PAL shenmue 2 save, but unless its perfect(I mean perfect, all toys, mveds mastered, scrolls etc...) just convert your save.

    Be warned, there is a "perfect save" floating around out there. Its not perfect, doesnt have very many toys, not all the moves are mastered (it does have a lot though) etc.

    Anyways, if you can do it, just convert your own save:D
