Currently there are only three dreamcast emus and none of them plays commercial games.
"Dreamer" was supposed to be best until recently and its said to play few demos and games ."Boobcast" is supposed to be the most advanced one and the third one "Dreamemu" has been updated recently with some screenshots.
I am really waiting for something big to happen on dreamcast emulation(I want to play Code veronica and Shenmue on my pc).

not dead yet, and not expensive (very cheap)...you can't go wrong with it, IMO.

And, btw, that's 'DreamPac', not Pacman for DC, or somesuch. It's a homedev'd project, not a commercial game.

yeah, but i just got a copy of it from....somewhere, so i was wondering if it was at least developed enough so as to play some games (like 50% compatibility or so). :p

50%? You've got to be kidding me.

At most, Dreamer is confirmed to run one commercial game, the wince-based Namco Museum Classics. Of course, the version that plays this is unreleased.

DreamEmu is supposed to be able to play one or two commercial games, or it is going to soon, again, unreleased.

boob!cast (hi CyRUS :)) plays pretty much all homedev stuff, but no commercial games (afaik, that is).

There you have it.

Helpful info Cdburnout.Anyway I think shiori may have been talking about sega saturn emulator (not dreamcast ones).Now sometimes when people go bit offtopic it can be confusing.

I hope and pray more commercial games are playable soon(have to keep an eye on all 3 emus and may be some new one).

Yeah, I've heard a long time ago that Dreamer plays Namco Museum only. So I've gotta ask: "Why only Namco Museum?" What makes a commercial game any different from another that only Namce Museum will work? Did the developers insert some kind of code (to this effect)?

/* ignore the code, I'm making this up...*/

if GD-ROM id == "Namco Museum"
then WORK!!!
else
DON'T WORK!!!
/* end of my foolish post*/
