Raspberry Pi 3 Dreamcast Emulation – 12 Dreamcast Games Tested with RetroPie 3.6 (Reicast)



Raspberry Pi 3 Dreamcast Emulation – 12 Dreamcast Games Tested with RetroPie 3.6 on the Reicast Emulator.

Hey Guys, Raspberry Pi 3 is here with a faster 64bit processor running at 1.2GHz. I have overclocked mine to 1.35GHz to test out if it has the power to run Dreamcast games at a playable level. It is worth pointing out that this little guy does get hot compared to the Pi 2, so it is definitely worth investing in a heatsink if you decide to pick one up.. maybe you could overclock higher!

To overclock the Pi3 you need to do the following:

Manually edit the /boot/config.txt file and edit the following line:
arm_freq=1350
Also add these two:
over_voltage=6
sdram_freq=500
Careful though as the Pi3 gets hot!

Below is a list of the games I tested and timestamps to where the
emulaton begins. Hope you enjoy the vid!

(Whoops, there was 12 games but Street Fighter 3 Third Strike seems to have been cut out of the vid! Only 11 for now)

  1. Hi, normally the bios files should go into the bios folder, but the dreamcast emulator seems not to find them. I put the two files also to the emulator folder where the one file dc_flash already existed, but I am still getting put the bios files in the folder. What do I have to get to get it running?

  2. Does this mean we might be able to see a working dolphin port to the pi 3? I know there have been a lot of developments to get it running on android and I think it could be possible to run some simple gamecube games with it.

  3. damn! ikaruga would be the best game to play on a raspberry pi in my opinion. it's perfect for that sorta game, its a shame I wouldnt play a shoot em up that runs like that, there are plenty of other great shoot em ups out there.

  4. I guess your ugly with a stupid voice but still next time some commentary would be appreciated, or anything besides stright clips. Do I even know these games well enough to detect how close they're running to their original hardware alternatives? Waste of time.

  5. Please hook it up with a tutorial on how to get controls working in Dreamcast. I just cant get my 360 controller to get me past the time and date screen. Also have you been successful in getting PPSSPP, not lr-ppsspp, controls working. Glitches out on me everytime i try to change them. Thanks. Love your videos. Helped me out tremendously.

  6. Great video! Marvel vs. Capcom for me is running a little slow during fighting. How did you overclock your cpu from 1.2ghz to 1.4ghz? I went to "Raspberry Pi Software Configuration Tool" and went to option 8 "Configure overclocking for your Pi" and it gave me an error message saying this Pi cannot be overclocked.

  7. Nice video, thanks for your work and the testing :-)

    Is that you who added an entire column in the compatibility list for your specific configuration?

    Most people won't overclock the pi 3, even without overclocking and with a heatsink, it can heat up to 80°C and there is still no reaction or announcement from the Raspberry foundation. For the moment I think viewers will probably be more interested by the standard performance of the pi 3.

    Also can you try some Nintendo DS games please ? On the pi 2 the emulation work correctly (perfect image, no crash, no glitch) but it was very slow, it would be interesting to see if it would be playable with more processing power.
