ive seen the DCX import boot disc and the Cheats n Codes disc that enables you to play imports. are they the same? is one better than the other?

thanks!

I use the cheats n codes disc. Does the cheats n codes disc have any region locks on it? If so the DC-X import boot loader might be better for PAL users since it would boot on any Dreamcast. I think the cheats n codes discs might work for NTSC-U/C users only, but I could be wrong.

Hehe yea it is already known to be a boot loader, but does the cheats and codes disc boot natively on a PAL system?

Ohhh I was referring to the Green, brown/orange colored NTSC-U/C release by GameShark. I wasn't aware there was also a PAL disc called Cheats N Codes as well.

Sorry for confusing you Nikon - Im talking about the Xploder disc (blaze) --- thats one of those cheat'n codes discs, but from another company - I guess.

I use DC-X to boot all my imports on my PAL system. I do this in VGA, and haven't had any problems.

I like Utopia v1.1, it works fast and I haven't had a problem with it yet.

so i was bidding on Cheats n Codes disc and today i got this in the mail:



is it essentially the same thing? i was expecting something else but if this serves the same function i guess i'm good to go.

Wow cool, what kind of case is that in? It looks like some sort of snaplock plastic case? Is this thing brand new unopened?

yea i havent opened yet, so it should be new. inside is a thin, plastic, snaplock case. i was expecting a standard cd jewel cased item and i got this, so i was a little surprised and i'm guessing it's similar to or the same thing as cheats n codes (made by gameshark, right?). i bought this to boot imports, but i dont have any imports to test it with! i got this first so when i do get a game, i can play it. i just hope it works the same way. i dont need and wont use it for any kind of cheating or activating infinite health in game (bleh), etc.. its only purpose in life is to help me play some of those DC imports i've been looking at over the years.

..and it's the cheapest option of playing imports next to getting a modification or jpn dc.

Not to make rain on the parade but you could've downloaded the gameshark cd-x demo off of megagames. Thats what I did.
