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?

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.
