I've got 5 PAL Dreamcasts, but one that has a busted motherboard from a failed mod that I had an "expert" do to be able to play Bakuretsu Muteki Bangai-o since I didn't think it would come to Europe.
This was way before those boot discs or any of that stuff.
It was "fixed" and cost me some more money, only to break down several months later.
So since there was a new pack out with Chu Chu Rocket and the game was supposed to only be available as a pack-in, and I couldn't spend more than a week or so without my Dreamcast, I bought a brand new one.
Always kept the other one for spare parts.
I have one Japanese Dreamcast as well, so I hope that the disc drives themselves are all region free and compatible in case this one dies as it's the system I use the most.
There are a couple of PAL games that never came out in Japan for some reason, like 4 Wheel Thunder and Metropolis Street Racer. So being able to play from various reasons is a must. Not to forget about the RPGs and such.

I got one of these as well: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/dreampsu-making-your-dream...
It's a replacement power board for the Dreamcast that accepts 12V from a standard plug adapter, so the insides don't become as hot anymore and the system has a longer life.
There's a Saturn version in the making as well, which is supposed to be ready pretty soon.

As for boot discs, I've got one that came with a Dreamcast magazine which was basically a demo of a cheat disc, but it could boot up import games, so I've used it for that. Also a downloaded Xploder CD which does the same thing.
Fussing around with a boot disc does become old rather quickly though, especially if you're switching between games often.

Sports Jam was one of the few games I only got later on, 2009 I think.
Because I'm not a big sports fan at all and didn't realise until later on that it was an actual arcade sports title, so that got me interested. Wish I could play it in multiplayer though.

Okami finally popped up on the Japanese eshop coming soon section.
There it states that the game will be in Japanese, English, French and German.
What this means is that it should be safe to import the Japanese only retail release of Okami as the game will be in English as well, unless that's an error in the listing or something, but I doubt it.

Psikyo Collection Vol 1 is coming soon.....to Korea. I'm not sure if this will be a Korean only release, but it has some of the eShop games included on one cartridge - Strikers 1945, Sol Divide, Samurai Aces and Gunbird.

@wasilewski It could be, but I'm hoping we'll at least see a Japanese one as well. Possibly a US one since it's Arc System Works?
The title reminded me of Toaplan Shooting Battle Vol.1 on PSone.
I really wish someone picks up the rights to all the Toaplan games and stars releasing all of them on Switch as well.
Sounds like the perfect job for ZedoDiv after they have worked their way through the Psikyo catalogue.
I would buy every single one!

edit:
Speaking of PSone. I took these a couple of weeks ago but never posted them.

@Lroy Yes, you're right, I think it's the one that remains of the last list they gave. I forgot.

I'm looking forward to see the names of the next batch.

I did find the time attack btw.
It's under Playtime, Race against the clock.
I thought playtime was only for creating and sharing tracks and such. It's only lap time though. No 3 lap races, which is weird. Gonna have to see if it's easier to do in PGR4. Can't remember.
Really like driving the Ferrari F50. Love the feeling of nearly losing control of such a powerful car, yet being able to keep it on the track if you get it right.
Couple of times with it in Tokyo:
Chinjuku Kabukicho Loop: 0.55.78
Bark to the Sun: 1.14.70
Shinjuku Speedway: 2.50.98

I can't believe it's been 4 months since we talked about this. Man, I guess I really have been busy lately.

Well, I had to go looking for this, but I finally got my 360 hooked up again tonight and gave it a few goes. I also downloaded Sega Rally Arcade and Bang Bang Racing as well.

Anyway, I was looking at my old times which were pretty bad and not even best among my friends. I've always loved racing games, but I never truly understood racing until watching and playing Formula 1. Since then I've been able to dominate my friends and have top times in all types of racing games. So, here's what I did on those three tracks:

Shinjuku Kabukicho Loop: 0.47.37
Bark to the Sun: 1.04.02
Shinjuku Speedway: 2.22.18

I used the Ferrari F50 as well for those runs. And speaking of Ferrari, I think I'll be playing some more OutRun as well now on the 360.

By the way, I still don't understand how the friends list works from XB1 to 360. But it looks like we need to add each other as friends on the 360 as well. I'll send an invite your way.

Hope all has been well!

It was my birthday this past weekend and my wife treated me to a surprise trip to San Francisco. While we were there we ran into a huge arcade museum, called Le Musee Mechanic, which had a ton of arcade games from every era imaginable. The highlight was seeing the old Gottlieb pinball machines as well as being able to play Deathrace, but a ton of other games were there and playable too. Below are some pics:

@Lroy

Ha, I figured you’d enjoy that one. The screen was in terrible shape, but I gave it a go. Also played the original Star Wars, Crusin USA, Alien vs Predator, Terminator, Street Fighter vs X-men and Death Race. It was a treat to see Death Race, as it’s legendary yet I had never seen one in person before. Many of the older tables, like the pinballs, were display only. Pretty cool museum to check out and it was free entry, just had to pay for the games.

@Agent721 I actually saw two Star Wars themed pinball machines out in the wild today. Alas, both display only. Wish I could have stumbled across an ALIENS vs. PREDATOR arcade cab.

It was awesome, I set the high score! Now that’s a game I’d love on the Switch.

I didn't get a notification again, so I didn't know you had replied...
It's been a while since I played on my Xbox One besides some Zombie Army Trilogy with a buddy online, as I've been drowning in Switch releases ever since I got my hands on Ys. Not quite sure how long it's been now since I booted my 360, all that I know is that it was a Dodonpachi game that hooked me.
Got a new 360 game in the meanwhile actually! Shikigami no Shiro III which I missed out on for some reason when it came out. But I haven't even opened it yet since, again, way too many Switch games right now.
Those times are certainly a ton better than mine! I really need to get back to PGR one day...
Still having a bunch of health issues and just had a terrible week actually, but it seems to be getting better again luckily. Got another 2 month extension, so that will make it a full year now that I've been home on sick leave. Hopefully it'll be the last one...
When I turn my 360 on, the first thing I'll look for is your invite.

I rarely follow the board here nowadays, but I spend a lot of time on the Adult Switch Gamers Discord: https://discord.gg/ufMFfdr

I've been skint lately after home improvements, but it looks like there are some decent arcade games out recently, it seems to be picking back up after a lull.

I bought Omega Fighter last week, next for me is either City Connection or Prehistoric Isle 2.

So I'm in an arcade streak lately and I've been purchasing arcade classics on my Switch in the past weeks. One of them is my first Johnny Turbo's Arcade title, Nitro Ball, and besides being fun, I have to say all my fears about this collection's emulation being worse than Hamster's were baseless.

I actually haven't noticed any problem, and video options are varied and interesting. No Hi-Score or Caravan Modes? OK, but in fact I rarely use them in my Hamster games. Maybe only on Xbox One (I bought some games for Xbox One because there some ACA Neo Geo games DO get on sale, at least last week) because of the achievements.

And dip switch options is something I don't usually mess with, because I like to keep the settings as they were originally.

So, what do I really miss about Johnny Turbo line? Well, if anything, maybe an option to limit your credits by coin inserting emulation (here you have unlimited credits, which should be an option, not the default and only way). Although I know it's silly, it recreates the feeling. And region switching as in Hamster's would be nice too.

Pleasantly surprised, maybe because I was expecting it to be worse than it is.
