Ok I tested The replay function on Crazy Taxi 2.
I am recreating the Crazy Taxi 2 website for dreamcast.
And where Replay video’s and data to download.
My Idea for 2019 is upload enable for Replay video sharing in VMU format.
But also if they are uploaded make a video in A Emulator and upload
it to Youtube. 2019 😉
So I tested it on my Dreamcast:
And then I uploaded it to my computer and loaded in the VMU of Redream
But like you can see the video’s are not the same…
So emulation is not done correct under Redream.
The inputs are not played correctly back under redream
resulting in: one Replay winning and one losing….
And breaking the game because it expects a win 😀
Did’t expect this so need to try another Emulator.
How to upload a vmu to your PC using DreamPI and XDP.
– Dreamcast 😀
– DreamPi setup to go.
– XDP webbrowser
Setup your basic website using xamp check if it works (see google for more info)
Download the Needed for VMU upload Template VMU site .
I am also working on a landing page for my Dreamcast so
this is my custom upload page: Its a more organised page everything dreamcast related kept close and easy to find.
There are a lot of good pages but they are scattered across the internet. After its uploaded I can download it in my Private VMU upload section.
How to import your save in to Redream:
You need VMU Explorer for pc: Create a new VMU and import your VMI files you can find in the upload folder of your web server.
ore copy them (VMI and VMS). Save the VMU file as a BIN > VMU0.BIN you can create 4 vmu’s
(VMU0.BIN VMU1.BIN VMU2.BIN VMU3.BIN)
Copy the bin in to the folder of redream and your vmu will load if you boot redream.
Boot ReDream and check the bios > System > Boot to Bios (bios.bin is need)
Yeah there is one extra 😀 I already booted Crazy taxi 2 and saved my profile file on it that is why 😀
If you seen the second video you have seen that haha

Last night I attempted to find out more info about Daytona USA.
Because last week I also tried going online but it required the Daytona Key so it fail at first screen….
I know there is no server for now but that is also reason for this exploration.
Don’t think I can get a Server working myself but my best skill is information gathering
so lets explore
Maybe some else can use this information to recreate a Daytona Server.
So the first thing to do is look for the key!
found this info:
Well, I had to do some VMU file re-arranging today, and that included
deleting my Daytona Battle Key. Well, after re-downloading a new key, I
noticed that my old character name, GoodCow, was “already registered.” =(
So, I guess I just learnt that the server attaches user names, directly to
the key file ID number, which by the way, is generated on the fly by the
server. I had thought that it tied user names to the “Sega.com user name”
which was just in the battle key. But, I guess it doesn’t work that way.
Maybe the wins and losses are stored in the battle key file as well? So, a
word of “warning” is that if you ever delete your Daytona battle key, your
user names are gone. When you download a new key, since it’ll have a new
“key ID” (currently at 20,465), it won’t have your old user name data in it. http://daytona.web.dreamcast.com/key/vm_data/data/
Only 20,465 people have downloaded keys. That’s pretty sad. Also, the server
deletes old keys I believe every Saturday.:
http://daytona.web.dreamcast.com/key/vm … a/crontest
# cron daytona [1 record]
# server name : daytona.web.dreamcast.com
# for remove VMS and VMI files
# Sunday – Saturday, 00:37, EXECUTION FILE:removevm.sh
37 00 * * * /home/daytona/site/htdocs/key/vm_data/data/removevm.sh >>
Anything important in this post? Not really. But if anybody makes some
extremely comprehensive Dreamcast and/or Dreamcast online FAQ, this would
make for a nice tid-bit in the Daytona section.
*GoodCow who has saved his new generated on-the-fly battle key to his HD as
well for the future, in case I ever need to delete the key again*
And I think its GoodCows version because it also got the cron log and the SH for deleting the keys.
Also this info gives use some info on how the server is build. There is a username used for the server “daytona’
We can read this in the log. Because that is also the user that deleted the vms data in the cron job.
Some things to know I use this version of Daytona:
Uploaded the Key to my VMU.
So if I boot now in to battle Net i get a bit closer to the server login:
And Of course error because there is no server 😀
I tried to sniff some information using wireshark but din’t find anything usefull
Think I need to change the Server (184.108.40.206) in DreamPi to my IP where I am running WireShare.
Will this later. For some strange reason my DreamPi is working perfect now no lockups anymore…
But next reboot the DNS will be changed and I can inspect maybe the packets that are send.
This is for next post.
Its a shame that DreamPi is not showing any good information for me when it tries to connect to the server:
I gathered a lot of information in the last 2 days and I needed to write it down first.
That is the reason for this post.
There are 2 interesting bin files on the CD 2_DP.BIN and DAYNET.BIN
Opening up DAYNET.BIN will give a ton of information on the client side:
2_DP.BIN is the Homepage needed to create the KEY file more info bellow.
First DAYNET because it gives use the client information and bit Server info.
interesting names used:
SRVRCLNT I Think thing below are found in the KEY file or are files needed on VMU DAYTONA USA REPLAY DAYTONA USA GHOST DAYTONA__R DAYTONA__G DAYTONA__CNF DAYTONA USA DAYTONA__KEY

There is more info in the 2dp.bin mostly java and html code.
Unfiltered information because it think this is the homepage (last option in Daytona Menu)
And this will not help us getting online in Net Battle:

My understanding the information:
The client uses auth01.dricas.com for authentication and uses /cgi-bin/auth.cgi commodity:%s user:%s pass:%s To authenticate it self on the server. If everything is correct it will continue to the

The game uses these Domain daytona.web.dreamcast.com and auth01.dricas.com
found out that F355 challenge got the same host and PSO also
That is all i could find in the DAYNET.BIN.
I think DAYNET is the way to explore if we want to login.
The Key files where located in this folder:
But I think tcp is the way to check because traffic needs to report <=> and tcp is
more reliable then UDP so: For TCP i got this IP only
22.214.171.124 also used 9500 Registered by ARIN
Source Port: 37126
tried 3 captures and the TCP ip is only consistent so I Am quite sure its was on that IP and port. 126.96.36.199:37126 on 9500
also dig into auth01.dricas.com:
More detailed mail exchanger (MX) records
Just a reminder for me 😀
Dreampi DNS config: home/pi/dreampi/etc/dnsmasq.conf
Things to know:
Dreamcast.online > dcnow-2016.appspot.com
dreamcast.online is 188.8.131.52 ipv6> 2001:4860:4802:34::15
DNS that DreamPi Uses > x1 using nameserver 184.108.40.206#53
I made this tutorial because there are some issues for pal users even Kazade could get it working 😀 His tutorial “Quote Kazade’s”
But for PAL, it gets even more complicated. Generally PAL modems are classed as Model B modems – they require a line voltage. However, I found that not many PAL users had had much luck getting connected, and when I tried, it didn’t work for me either, even with a line voltage inducer!
Here is a quick Tutorial to flash DreamPi on OSX
Get (DreamPi 1.7 Image) from the Kazade’s page: Or Download here!
Extract .7z using unarchiver or any extractor that can extract 7Z
Open Etcher: Load DreamPi-1.7.img If you inserted your SD check if it selected and press flash!: Wait until Flashed and Validating are done!
After write and check insert into Raspberry PI and give your PI power. (Don’t connect the modem!!)
DreamPi will start up on boot.
This is all you need todo if you want to boot in you Pi you can do it like this:
Once you booted your will be prompt a Login screen.
you can change the password: passwd
Extra info for Pal users:
I found that there is a strict boot sequence I need to follow.
If I do every thing in sequence it works every time.
I recommend to login SSH or via HDMI composted what ever monitor the log after boot!
using this command:
sudo tail -f /var/log/syslog
This is how you can follow the activity of your DreamPi: At this point the Pi is resolving domains. Good point to connect the modem: Reason for not connecting modem not at boot is because modem would not get found in DreamPI script.
If you wait until boot it works every time.
Now you wait until you see that DreamPi is ready for a connect from your Dreamcast:
At this point Dreampi is starting up:
Here is it starting Up your modem. Keep on waiting….
Here you can find your Dreamcast IP : default 192.168.x.98 if free (replace x with your mine 1)
And the OK gives you the signal to connect the Line Inducer for the extra 18V. Other wise you will get Line buzzy error
At this point your done on your Pi takes like 2 – 5 min I guess at the most.
After that I found out I could reconnect change games etc without any problems.
Leaving it connect for longer than a day I never got this to work. I have a feeling DreamPi crashes at one point.
Need to consult te logs for that….
OK lets continue with the tutorial.
Open the ports for your dreamcast so login to your router.
The easy way out is just open your Dreamcast ip 192.168.x.98 in your router using DMZ: Otherwise you need to port forward all ports needed for the different games
After this your done boot up your dreamcast and Quake 3 or Web browser to config your modem:
I used Quake this is my setup:
The requirement to dial that specific number was removed pre version 1.0 and now it will answer any number that’s dialed. DreamPi doesn’t require a specific username or password either. But you need to fill it in so go crazy!
Just a log entry when i connect to Quake 3 servers.
Today I finished the install of Xlink Kai on Raspberry Pi.
There were a few things that made the install not that easy.
First of my user name was not ready did’t use the account that much so the email address was not correct.
Apparently it was linkt to my first email address that i own around 1998 till 2003 forgot that I got that 😀
After sorting that out with CrunchBite I could start on this project.
I installed it on my last available Raspberry a first gen. (Raspberry pi 1 B) 😀
So I Downloaded the newest and greatest version.
From the Xlink website.
Or ssh in to your Pi and use curl to download direct to the Pi
Then extract it: tar -zxvf kaiEngine-7.4.33-rev767.headless.ARM.tar.gz
Then a sudo ./kaiengine_arm to test it:
Open a browser and load the ip of your pi + port (http://192.168.1.xxx:34522/)
Then check > Metrics
Remember de Public port (44492) you will need it later.
If everything is working like it should you can make it auto boot edit sudo nano /etc/rc.local
and added sudo screen -DmS kaiengine /home/pi/launchkai.sh above the exit line
After this your almost ready, because there needs to be some port forwarding (for me I did and have upnp on) :
When you join a room and nobody got a connection, this is mostly because the port that is need is not open.
the UI is on port 34522 but we don’t need this outside our house.
I did enabled Pat because I have 1 public ip and more xbox’s
but the public port in my case is 44492 (Remember Metrics) so after changing this in my router:
I get everybody connected and see also ping status. 😀
So after that, boot up Halo 2.
And after selecting System Link a got a lot of games to join:
No lets get my ass kick by some PRO halo players 😀
Outcome: Dcnigma 1 other player 20 😛 😛 Omg I need to practice <
Xlink Kai works perfect and is nice add-on for my xbox’s need to test other consoles later.
Also i found a little bug:
if your password is contains a = symbol this will break auto login.
When you save your password in the config it will cut your password.
Dra600n of AirWalk Studios released his make of Fix it Felix jr. on genesis to the public a couple months ago.
It works on the Mega Everdrive. However some times some of the sprites are missing and you have to reset the game to make them show. Download link to the Rom
It works perfect on RetroPie.

Wow just wow! The official Website for Avalaunch is still up in 2019.
Remember that I enter a competition for them for a logo design.
I made a modded version of avalaunch for personal use 😀
Features where auto login in to Xbins irc and added auto login to there FTP.
That way I could direct download my new goodies from Xbins. Good times.
Xbox is maybe my favorite console, Dreamcast come’s very close…
If I ever find this custom xbe I will upload for the future!
