How to play Japanese Shenmue on PAL Dreamcast?

Postby timic83 » Thu Sep 01, 2016 11:16 pm

When I was in Japan recently I got a legitimate copy of Shenmue for the first time on proper GDI discs, however my Dreamcast will not run it. I sort of expected this, I play most of my games including the original Shenmue on self-boot discs, but the Utopia boot disk isn't working, it shows the Shenmue disc but then just goes to black forever. I have played Japanese self-boot games (Zero Gunner 2) so I don't know what the problem is here...

You can use cheat code discs to boot Shenmue.

There are a couple of guides on this on the internet.

You can also view a video I did here:
