This site started April 26th 2003. The Dreamcast site in particular was built to save something that was crumbling around us. The summer was hard. In June-August most of the online Dreamcast games went offline. This site had just barely started. I didn't even really need to advertise it much, the Dreamcast gamers just started showing up out of nowhere(no more Field of Dreams puns...k tnx lol). We were left with a scattered version of Dreamcast online gaming, a shadow of SegaNet's former self. However over the past 8 months we have re-built Dreamcast online gaming. It has not been an easy task and has taken the self sacrifice of many people.

Some of the dreamcast's online capabilities were rediscovered. Countless game content downloads were salvaged. Special guides and game help files were put up. Community members pooled their time and researched many facets of dreamcast online gaming to see exactly what could accomplished now, after Sega cut off many of its servers. We soon started to find more functioning online abilities with the Dreamcast than we could have even guessed back in April. Honestly I thought by now Dreamcast Online Gaming would consist of surfing the internet, Sega Swirl and Quake 3 Arena. I thought by now thats all we would be left with. This however was not the case.

In the next 48 hours we will be nearing completion on all of the painstaking research we have done over the past 8 months. The Dreamcast OC site is nearing a content completion point where the bulk of the necessary Dreamcast Online content information is to be finished and filled in. I did start this website, however actually adding all this content and finding it was a community effort. I would like to thank the following people who specifically helped save Dreamcast Online gaming. If it wasn't for this community effort, DC online gaming would have vanished and most of the information and files lost forever.

HUGE thanx to everyone that took PSO snapshot pics during september of 2003 on DC PSO. We have the only recorded archive of images from US DC PSO's final days online. The overwhelming amount of fantastic shots the site features from those days was well worth it. Thanks to all who submitted a photo during that month.

-

Whats next up on the agenda you ask? Well isn't it obvious? Gaming of course. Now we can sit back and relax and concentrate on having fun. Tournaments, Contests, and game petitions are on the horizon.

Once again thanks to everyone who has helped make the best Dreamcast Online Gaming site ever.

The hard work and effort was worth it. This site has became a very, very well done and professinal site. And is the ONLY place (other then maybe if there is Japnanese sites) where a scheduler is actually active, and a ative message board, and tons of great info. Well done lordnikon and to everyone else who has helped out.

Dude, this site kicks ass and i love the fact that we're slowly piecing together an "army" somewhat of hardcore gamers who know what the DC can really handle. I'm keeping SegaNet because it's inexpensive and well worth it. Of course, I strongly think that games like Starlancer and Worms World Party should be made on the PC because it would attract more gamers and add more fun for ME!!!

Word, nikon. The community just keeps growing and growing. And everyone seems to be very deeply involved. *round of applause*. Because of websites like this one, the DC will never die. Lots of dedication here. Smile Once again, great job everyone. (Hopefully I'll be able to get another game guide up soon)

indeed, its really friendly and does not insult newbies, but instead welcomes them. Which is important if you want a scene to grow. Very Happy
