Yeah Its a dreamcast running Nester ver. 6.0
Nester runs really good on the DC but it was missing the OG feel and look of the nes So I crammed a DC and 2 DC controllers in a NES Case.
Thanks for looking  :D

Nice job.  Why the 9 pin Atari / Genesis style plugs?

I have just gotten into the dreamcast and have the same emu up and running.
wanna share how you did it?
also like above. why the Atari plugs?
I happen to have a spare nes.
I need to play with my dramcast here in a few
I have been busy making Emu's and not playing with them. I thought all the buttons were needed in the menu. ( not sure I will go check)

I like what you did, way cool.

so you have to flip open the case to put a CD in, or is it not necessary to ever swap CDs?

You can fit every US rom and the emulator on one disk.  NES roms are friggin tiny!
If there's bees in the trap I'm catching em
By the thorax and abdomen
And sanding the stingers down to a rough quill
Then I dip em in ink, and I scribble a bit
But if it they wriggle then I tickle em until they hold still
Lemme say it again
In my land of pretend
I use bees as a motherf_kin' pen

Damn dude thats very impressive!  Looks like a normal NES.  I thought you were proud of the Blue LED on the front so I figured, wow, lame.  This is awesome!  Gets rid of all those damn black screens and fuzzy pictures from dusty cartridges.  I used to HATE that!

The real question is, though:  how does it perform?  Do the games play as well as they do on the real hardware?

I haven't tried the NES emu for DreamCast yet but have heard that it is one of the few emulators for DC that are actually supposed to run perfect.

yes version 7 is said to be able to I have it but not played with it yet
as far as version 6 (said to be the best) I have yet to find a game not to work well.
but I have only played about 12 games so far.

also the Sega master system works very well
I will have to check on the Master systems game pads I think they were 2 buttons also. not sure never really played it. I got into Sega with the genesis. Loved those Sega genesis commercial

you CAN in fact fit a cd drive in there. Get a laptop adapter and use a laptop cd-rom drive and a laptop hard drive.

Maybe I missed something but what does a laptop cd drive have to do with a DreamCast?

he is talking about a real pc in a Nintendo case. I have seen it, sweet, but the dreamcast is a lot cheep er and the game play is just as good.
all my PCs are going into Mame . maybe some day I will build a pc consolestation but i tossed that project out for the time being. I like this with the dreamcast.

Very interesting. I have seen the NES PCs, but not of NES Dreamcasts. My brother recently got his PS1 running NES quite well, I'm sure you could fit a PS1 into an NES just as easily as a Dreamcast.

The only thing that I think could be improved on is the disk tray. Surely there must be a way to modify the case to be able to easily swap the disks. Then you could put some controller ports on the back and have it play normal Dreamcast games as well.

Yeah, but then it's not an NES, it's a hybrid thingie.  I'd rather see a purely dedicated NES with alternate hardware than some hybrid console multipurpose ugly thing.

I agree 100%. This is one of the coolest projects I've seen in a long time, and defintely hands down the coolest console based project. I'm seriously considering making one myself.

You can save your NES games to the VMU.  It's the Dreamcast memory card.

I have an extra dreamcast and an extra NES... i lack the skillz though.

Is there a way to make the cd drive a tray opener? that would be bad ass because you could just open the NES Cartridge Door and put a new cd in whenever you want!

Hmm.....I've got a DC I don't use(lack of games.) and some NES parts, including an empty case or two.....


on the other hand, I also have my PS1.


On the other other hand, I could actually get it running sometime this millenium on the DC.


on the other other OTHER hand, my xbox already does NES games quite well.... speaking of which, I must update that mighty giant.

can you use CDRWs with the DC?
