About this app

Play your Dreamcast games on the go & in HD.

Reicast the only Dreamcast emulator for Android. It is not perfect yet, but can already run many games.

No games or bios are included with this download, as this would be illegal. You have to dump the bios and games from your own dreamcast.


**Permissions**
- "Photos/Media/Files" -> to read game images and bios
- "Camera/Microphone" -> for dreamcast microphone emulation
- "Device & app history" -> to read emulator crash logs. You can submit the logs via the included menu to help us solve issues.


**Setup**
- Create a folder named "reicast", and then a folder named "data" inside it. Put the bios (dc_boot.bin & dc_flash.bin) inside the data folder. Windows sometimes hides the file extention, so the filename might look like "dc_boot" on the windows explorer.

- Create a folder anywhere you want, and put the Dreamcast games in there. Reicast currently supports .gdi, .chd (v4), and .cdi disc formats, but .cdi is discouraged due to problematic compatibility.

- Open reicast and selet the "reicast" folder you created as system path.

- In order to save your game-play progress you will first need to format the memory cards. In order to do this you need to start the program, select the "boot bios" option, go to the "file" option, select the memory cards and then select the "delete all" option.

- Finally use the game navigator to locate your games. You can also setup a game path if you want to default to a specific folder.

- For further support & general questions, ask in http://forums.reicast.com/index.php?board=1.0

**Recommended specs**
- Cpu: Cortex-A9, Dualcore, 1.2ghz
- Gpu: Adreno, Tegra K1 or Mali400 gpus
- At least 512mb ram

Terrible. Just. TERRIBLE. Past versions of this emulator work perfectly fine with my phone. But this current version doesn't work in the slightest. For example, Sonic Adventure. That game works really well with the older versions (it runs at full speed). But it won't boot with this current version! In fact, it wouldn't even start the control editor. I setup everything perfectly (since I've used past versions) and yet it STILL didn't work. I thought Emulator updates were supposed to FIX problems, not CREATE them. NOTE: Before anyone says that my phone is weak, bear in mind that my phone can do Saturn emulation at full speed.

It's a good emulator, does what it's suppose to, the reason for 4 star is because there is no options to lower quality or make it better, there just just no video settings is what I'm trying to say, I get a steady 30 FPS at all times, but sometimes I spike from 60 to 30 to 40 to 50 to 30... And also the frame counter is inaccurate, it doesn't update ... If you guys can come out with an update where I can change video settings to I don't spike as much, I'll change to 5 star..

I understand why so many people give this app a low rating....it's not "easy" to get working. However, one you get it working the performance is very impressive. If they could get the controller/interface bugs ironed out I would GLADLY give it a 5 star. I mean, when you think about it....it's Dreamcast on a phone! Plus, it's the ONLY DC emu. Plus, IT'S FREE! I guess it SHOULD get a 5, considering those points, but it' just so godam buggy. Can't wait to change my rating though. I'll keep an eye out for dem updates boi! Most importantly, THANKS REICAST DEVS!!!
