what type of connector is it? I have several standard coax TV cables, but if its a different, annoyingly specific one like the Mega Drive 2 then you're out of luck :)

They won't work. The Dreamcast has a bespoke connection.

It's a fantastic machine,far better than PS1 and N64
Arguably better than PS2
By the way,what games did you get?

id already got...had em ages

cos i found em for about £1.99 each in charity shops
very good condition :)

Chu chu rocket
ECW hardcore revolution
MSR (Metropolis street racer)
Resident evil:code veronica
WF attitude

not amazing but a good start
and only a tenner for all five :)
a tenner for the console plus whatever koops wants for the lead.....not much i hope :)

a neighbour has a keyboard..............what can you still use the keyboard for? i presume the online access is long dead?

Typing of the dead? (import)

Some games allow you to type in your name,you can use it for that
(also I assume if you're going to use emulators,a keyboard may be needed?)

Can't comment on the rest, but this one is class stuff... Check your local Gamestation too, last one i visited had stuff up for five quid and down depending on the title.
