The Dreamcast ended up being the only sixth-generation console with a disc based on CD technology rather than DVD technology; even the Nintendo GameCube's smaller 8 cm discs held 50% more data due to being based on DVD technology. In addition, GD-ROM proved to be an ineffective anti-piracy measure when it was discovered the Dreamcast's forgotten MIL-CD functionality could be exploited to boot games burned to CD albeit with some content removed.
After the discontinuation of the Dreamcast worldwide on March 31, 2001, Sega continued to use the GD-ROM format in arcades with the Sega NAOMI 2, Triforce and Sega Chihiro. With the release of the Sega Lindbergh in 2005, Sega moved on to DVD discs and continued to use satellite and internet technology in the arcade. The last disc-based Naomi 2 and Triforce games were released in 2006 which marked the final releases using the GD-ROM format.
The format was developed for Sega by Yamaha, and first commercially appeared with the Dreamcast's Japanese launch in November 1998. GD-ROM was created because the standard CD-ROM was prone to piracy and reaching the limits of its storage capacity, while implementing the then brand-new DVD-ROM technology would have made console production too costly. However, the Dreamcast did retain the ability to read standard CD-ROM discs, and thus still suffered from software piracy as bootleggers managed to fit certain games on CDs and exploit the Dreamcast console's compatibility with the MIL-CD format. As the GD-ROM format can hold about 1 GB of data, illegally copying Dreamcast games onto a 650 MB CD-ROM sometimes required the removal of certain game features, although this did not prevent piracy. The main difference between GD-ROM and MIL-CD is that MIL-CD can boot on an unmodified Dreamcast like original SEGA's disk, making piracy extremely easy. At the end of 1999 Sega released a new revision of the Dreamcast hardware which was not able to boot MIL-CDs, therefore preventing piracy.
PAL region discs contain the message, "This is a Dreamcast disc, and is for use only on a Dreamcast unit. Playing this disc on a hi-fi or other audio equipment can cause serious damage to its speakers. Please stop this disc now." The message is also repeated in French, German, Spanish and Italian. Some PAL region games, however, use the NTSC messages.
Owing to the discontinuation of the Dreamcast console, developers have created the ROM technique, which enables players to play old Dreamcast game titles. These ROMs rip and save file formats of original and actual Dreamcast games. Basically, they are copies of the games. To enjoy your gameplay, you must first download the ROM files and then install a compatible emulator for your PC.

The Dreamcast was the first major console to include a modem as standard for online play, it introduced the intriguing, but never-really-properly-used VM memory units, microphone attachments for voice-controlled games and even high definition visuals via a special VGA box.
Despite all of this, the Dreamcast managed to provide us with some truly excellent games during its relatively short tenure, some even considered by many to be definitive versions. Some of these titles were Dreamcast exclusives, whilst others were superb ports of games also found on other platforms.
The second outing was a corker on the Dreamcast, and along with an excellent game engine, which provided a fast and fluid game of tennis, there was a sprawling world tour career mode and a large selection of mini games, not to mention a in-game currency system that let you buy items for your player, as well as front entry fees for tennis tournaments.
As one of several cab drivers your goal was to race around the city, picking up fares and dropping them off as quickly as possible before your time ran out. Various mini games were also included in the Crazy Box mode, such as a taxi ski jump and bowling, The second game added more complex maps, a jump ability and group fare pick ups, but remained pretty much identical to the original, which many still consider superior.
Crazy Taxi was the epitome of classic time, and score attack gaming. It was one of those games you kept coming back to just to see if you could do better, and the unlockables and mini games only served to add even more to the addictive gameplay.
The first Sonic Adventure may have been a little rough around the edges, but the second game managed to refine the formula greatly. It featured multiple characters, various game styles and some impressive presentation. It was a slick, 3D affair that was one of the few such Sonic games to recapture the feel of the originals whilst injecting something new.
Run NAOMI GD-ROM format games stored in MAME zip + chd format by running the zip file through RetroArch. The zip file should be stored in your roms folder with the chd file in a subdirectory of the roms folder named after the mame ID.

The 'VMU A1' setting creates a unique VMU 'A1' file in RetroArch's save directory for each game that is launched. The 'All VMUs' setting creates 4 unique VMU files (A1, B1, C1, D1) for each game that is launched.
Warning of an "epidemic" of violence in video games, an industry watchdog on Thursday blasted some of the biggest titles of the year for treating women as sex objects and rewarding violence against them.
The National Institute on Media and the Family released its seventh annual report card on the video game industry at the Washington offices of Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman, a long-time advocate of restrictions on violent games.
But at the same time, the Democratic senator, who is weighing a bid for president in 2004, admonished parents to take responsibility for their children`s access to violent games. "Remember, you are your child`s first -- and last -- line of defence," he said.
The report also singled out Acclaim Entertainment, which features semi-naked strippers, saying it and games like it "degrade women and reinforce dangerous stereotypes by treating them as sexual objects." An Acclaim spokesman said the game was rated appropriately and that the game was never meant for or marketed toward children.
"The industry has made important steps in the last few years to accurately rate all games," the report said. "However, it is disturbing to see that some of the most popular games with adult themes are inappropriately deemed suitable for younger audiences." 2b1af7f3a8
