Iceberg Ahead

Just a small update to tell you that I’ve messed up and ordered wrong pegs for GDEMU. More specifically I’ve ordered Rhea pegs twice instead and only realized that a few days ago when I run out. And now the ones I need are out of stock and earliest I can get them is March…

Well, I found a replacement that should be good enough although not a perfect match (~0.5mm difference in height) so I’m going to use that until I have the ones I prefer – there won’t be a huge delay. That however also means I won’t start taking more GDEMU orders until I have the correct pegs on my desk as I want to be sure I have all the parts.

Since I now have a bag of pegs I probably won’t ever use I’m thinking about adding one of those to each GDEMUs shipped with the substitute. If any of you are unhappy with the different peg you can cut that Rhea one down to size (12mm) on your own if you wish.

  1. I don´t understand you. What are you saying? You send me a functional GDEMU or not? it haven´t arrived and i don´t know if it will work.

  2. I assume my order that already shipped about 10 days ago is the regular, normal one. Frankly, as long as everything lines up properly and works, I don’t care what pegs are used. I’m just looking forward to modding one of my Dreamcasts into using this wonderful device (whenever it arrives). 🙂


  3. The peg that he refers to is just a stand off that supports the GDEMU. I figured someone would panic. LOL

    • You don’t want GDEMU without pegs. I mean the earliest V4 didn’t have them as I used stacked felt pads back then – it works but pegs are easier and nicer.

  4. A while back you mentioned potentially checking into the compatibility issues with the retail versions of Bleemcast if you had the time. Did you ever get a chance to look into it?

    It would be pretty awesome to be able to play Gran Turismo 2 on the DC with shorter loadtimes.

      • Makes sense. It’s weird that the beta/hacked versions seem to work, but the retail ones do not.

        Hopefully if you can get to it it ends up being something simple, but considering the multiple layers of emulation involved between both the GDEMU and Bleemcast itself who knows.

      • Beta works, yes, but hacks of the retail version don’t. Beta disc isn’t nearly as protected though.

      • I have Gran Tourismo 2 and the Bleemcast! disc for it. Much better experience than even playing it on the PS2. I didn’t even think about trying it out with the GDEMU. I assume it would need to have both images (Bleemcast and GT2) on the SD card? I don’t want to sidetrack the discussion too much as I’m sure I could try to search for this on some forum. But if it’s just that simple, that’s awesome. I’m still anxiously awaiting my GDEMU’s arrival.

  5. Still waiting for my payment request, so whichever pegs.. I don’t care so long as I eventually get my GDEMU and haven’t been forgotten about😀

    • Ignore that request as i have a 21 pin Saturn so it’s the Phoebe I’m interested in…

      • I agree, if there’s no news soon regarding the Phoebe I’ll go the modchip route too.

  6. Hello everyone.

    I’ve been having trouble with one particular game, others run fine, not sure where to ask the questions.

    Its Power Stone, it just freezes after a while. Seems audio related as sometimes there is no music and a couple times it came back sans music after a few of minutes, only to hang for good about a minute later

    I’m using a 32Gb Sandisk card.

    Deunan warns against using images captured using the swap method, so I’m wondering if that may be the issue. Is it possible to identify those?
