I got MAME running, but I wanted more.. So I tried loading Demul.
This didn’t go like I wanted at first needed to edit the script use a hidden command in pin popper to load the playfield “bezel”
But before I did that I needed to fit it on the screen, I don’t know if I want to play on the playfield like I do now. For now its ok but maybe I will change it in the future. To make it work I needed to install windows app. Found a good one that works, but after running it I found out that I lost focus so I wrote a Autokey script to keep it ontop and press f3 to remove the menu bar in window view.. Script and hidden command for keeping playfield running below. Here is a video how it resizes:
Here are some pictures of the 2 games I have running for now:
Made some backglasses for them and DMD images.. Wanted to use video, but found nothing fitting…
After some tweaking I was able to install it and get it running on my Cab.
Here is video of the update.
– You can find PinUP popper frontend. if you follow the link.
Suggest you read the wiki a few times…- I made me some custom DMD overlays because of my 2 screensetup.
Been using DMDoverlay but need to change the size here and there.
So we made some custom overlays download link below.
– I wanted to add some Mame games.
Looked up some TATE games and now I have about 124 games.
Here is my game list ( Pastbin). PinUP popper got a nice search feature for pinball tables.
But for MAME games it will not work so i made my Wheels, DMD, etc myself.
Used the autorecorder for the playfield recording.
Here are someimages of my Mame wheel images:
– I also needed custom DMD’s for my Mame games: You can find my Custom Mame DMDS in my mega.co.nz folder.
And of course I needed backglasses our Marquee but because of most
of the marquee images would be on the DMD I wanted to add Video’s.
Searched on youtube and (p)ornhub to find some useable video clips
Yes (p)ornhub apparently lots of TATE games are hot girls games 😀 So little warning for the videos not all are Safe for under 18 😉
Did a little editing on them but not enough to call it ready.
But i will share them and update them if i have time. You can find my Custom Mame videos in my mega.co.nz folder.
Install my images and videos in your default mame popvideo folder.
They are already named correct, if you use the same romset.
Didn’t use a rom organiser, so there can be errors.
See my game list at pastbin for the names I used.
Most of the homebrew on switch uses + to exit I modded FTPD to do that too.
My first button press was always + so I fixed that for my self.
If you want to use it your self you can grab a copy form the download link below.
I din’t expect to write homebrew for my Switch this early but it happen quite fast.
Have set a goal for my self to make some homebrew for al my modded consoles.
So I found my self installing DevKitPro on my OSX 10.14.6 Mac.
The installation was not that easy, but in the end I got the example files compiled.
Look at that nice build log:
What would borat say?
Just need to install everything by pacman -Sy ….
Check this pastbin to check what i have installed:
So after that, it was time for some “hello world” testing.
is it not a beauty 😀
Real “Hello World” screenshot (made in Vakantie park Aqua Delta I was bored)
After a few hours of copy and past work.
I made a hello world combining audio sdl and time example:
Used some of my ownmusicBartclub: music for the mind (freak sounds)
“Music for the Mind aka Helloween”
Now after some more googling and searching and I found a few homebrew sources to compile.
But sadly there where some broken Makefiles and because
I just started my journey into Switch develpement these things made my progress halt.
But in the end i made a nice small demo in SDL 2 to get me started.
I wanted graphics in my demo so i guessed I needed to learn some SDL2
Made a Icon 😀 for it
Here is a 30 second preview captured by the Switch of the Demo:
Like i said it’s just a few examples thrown together.
Audio SDL2 and SDL2 PNG example (not include in switch example pack link below)
And my own music again Electragazan sounds a bit 8 bit (a bit) 🙂
Binary Download build version for your Switch.
(Place .nro in new folder on you SD:/Switch/ folder)
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.
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.
[Marathon Mode]: Down Right A C Up Left A
[Blood Code]: A B A C A B B
[Extra Time]: A C C Right Up A Left
I Did some Rom Modding.. (again) 😀
Found this Rom made by Kaze Emanuar (Download)
Like the concept of it, but it was laking some extra textures..
So I added some more 2 make it more Bowsette like…
Still work in progress no release plannend for now.
So there is now Download link for now.
Here are some screenshot of the textures, I changed so far:
Some in game screenshots:
I use N64Rip to change the in game graphics: Good link for information on those textures, you will need a Hex Calculator to count the hex values together.
Did also some text editing changed Mario in to Bowsette.
Just started N64 Rom modding so still checking out the tools and most of them don’t work on OSX. (10.14.5)
Found a few that run well under playonmac.
Got bored and made a nice box art for it:
Credits for the nice background Pixiltales..
Needed for my Retropie 😀
