o well, maybe it'll happen in the future(O LOOK! A FLYING PIG!)

i imagine the dreamcast could do a good bit to improve the graphics but i guess that if it ever gets ported it will b quite sum time

Nope, no ePSXe for DC. They are still busy perfecting it on the PC and they are doing a fantastic job of it as well. I don't think there are any plans, at all, to port ePSXe to the DC.

Yeah, but by then will anybody still care about dreamcast? Anyhow, I don't imagine it would be too hard, since the dreamcast's graphics hardware is available for pc(hercules 4000/kyro 2 I think), the main problems would be no hard drive, less memory, no windows 9x, and that is is running a 200 mhz superSH or whatever, which I'm pretty sure is a palm pilot cpu though I imagine it could hold up pretty well against a 400 mhz pentium 2.

Perhaps these emulators are being ported to the DC for the sake of thos who own one and enjoy it. The DC was quite a good system, I had one, myself, for a short time. If you can breath some new life into a dead system, I say, "Why not?"

Because the dreamcast has a pretty good and cheap graphics chip in it? Oh, and I think I remember reading something about sega releasing something that would let you play dreamcast games on your pc, like they did with the saturn.

I do remember a while back Sega was considering releasing something that allow you to play DC games on a PC but it was canceled like many other DC related items. Sega is however releasing a DC devkit for PC soemtime, but it will still cost 5000$ (USD) - Which is more then I'm gonna pay to MAKE a game for OTHERS to enjoy.

There was some saturn thing, basically it was the entire sega saturn, but on a pci board(I think) and it stock out in the back and had places to plug in saturn controllers. Basically, it was a saturn without the casing. The dreamcast thing was supposed to be the same. I would assume they could at least work with the rest of your computer though, or they would be kind of worthless.
