I still have faith in the Icarus project coming out at some point in the future with the promised ability to read original GD-ROMs.
I'd be just as happy if Chankast would support the ability to play normal rips of Dreamcast games which are larger than a CD. Right now if you throw anything larger than 700mb at it, it'll tell you to go fuck yourself. From what I've read, the author is busy as hell with real life right now (working on Commandos 4 or some such)...so yea.
TANGENT -> Any other emulator authors willing to admit to working for game companies?
