New installer

I have released a new build of my installer, which features a much improved UI and a new self-update system that allows you to update the mods before installing them!

Web version

Offline version (December 1 update)

I hope you like the new installer, and I would love to hear your feedback! Please leave your comments on the main page, on the installer's GitHub issue or on my Twitter. And don't forget to vote for Dreamcast Conversion on ModDB if you like Dreamcast stuff!

Here's a list of new features for this build:

Profile system

The installer has been redesigned around profiles that require minimum user input for a very easy install process, and a Custom profile for advanced users who want to set things up manually.

  • Dreamcast mods: full experience with Dreamcast mods and various enhancements
  • SADX with enhancements: for people who like to play the game without Dreamcast mods
  • Minimal/Vanilla: only the most essential/speedrun friendly mods are installed
  • Custom: allows to select which mods to install and configure Mod Loader settings

Install types

New mods

  • Camera Code Error Fix (CCEF) by VeritalDL and SonicFreak94 - Minimal/Vanilla profile only
  • Idle Chatter by SonicFreak94
  • Egg Carrier Garden Ocean Fix by PkR - SADX profile only
  • Mystic Ruins Base Fix by PkR - SADX profile only
  • Egg Carrier Ocean Music by MainMemory

Update system

  • The installer can check if updates are available for the mods, the Mod Loader and the installer itself
  • New UI for the update check: the installer will tell you which mods will be updated
  • The installer can now update itself and relaunch automatically

User experience

  • Various UI improvements
  • A new "Reset graphics settings" checkbox has been added to help troubleshoot startup crashes
  • The Mod Loader settings page is now displayed only when the Custom profile is selected
  • An option to clean up the mods folder (Custom profile only)
