The Sega Dreamcast is a video game system that was released in 1998. It used many new technologies never before seen in video game consoles. These include an internal hard drive and Internet connectivity. The Dreamcast was discontinued only three years later in 2001. This left many Dreamcast owners in the dark as far as system repair and warranty information are concerned. If you have a few leftover Dreamcast games sitting around your house, but no Dreamcast system, you can actually play those games on your computer using a Dreamcast computer emulator known as NullDC.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Download and install NullDC from the NullDC developer's website. NullDC is the only Sega Dreamcast emulator that is still in development as of 2011.

  2. 2

    Open NullDC on the computer and click the "File" button on the topline menu of the NullDC emulator program's main window. Click "Normal Boot" from the context menu that comes up.

  3. 3

    Click the "Option" button on the topline menu of the main NullDC. Click the "Maple" option on the menu that comes up. Click "Port A." Click "Config keys for Player 1." A list of controls will be displayed.

  4. 4

    Click each control once and press the key on the keyboard that you want to use to activate it. This will be your gamepad when playing the Dreamcast game. Complete the entire list of controls with a unique key for each one. Click "OK" to return to the NullDC main menu.

  5. 5

    Click the button next to the directory dialogue to open a new window. Find the Dreamcast game file that you would like to run using NullDC, and click "OK" to open it using the Dreamcast emulator. Use the keys you configured previously to play the game with NullDC.
