I know if it and it tricks 80% of games or something.

I don't know where to download it however ;)

http://www.megagames...ls_bootcd.shtml has lots of boot discs but I'm not sure any of them do the VGA trick.

You can still buy DC-X from some places too. It is about $19-20 last time I checked.

Also Xploder does the same thing but it has the cheats function too.

I will keep an eye out for both of them.

DC-X to play Import* games

1) Switch off you DreamcastTM Console.
2) Insert the DC-X CD.
3) Switch on your DreamcastTM. After a few seconds you will
see the DC-X logo with the "Remove Disc" screen.
4) Remove the DC-X CD.
5) Insert the import game you wish to play and close the
CD cover.
6) The game will now run. If it does not then
you will need to see the Special Cases below.

Special Otions screen:

Selected game titles will not run using the above steps.
If the game does not run;

1. Repeat steps 1 to 4
2. Before inserting the Game CD, press any button
on your controller.
3. Insert your game CD you wish to play and close the
CD Cover - the Special Options screen will appear.

Cable Type:

VGA adaptor/RGB scart/AV Mono.
It is not important that you do not have the cable
speciefied - this is only to"switch" the console to the mode
the game needs to play in.

TV Mode:

NTSC/PAL.

*Note: The term Import Game refers to using a game not
originally designed for play on your console - i.e.
Japanese and American games on a Pal European Console,
European Games on a Japanese or American Console etc.

* SO THIZ RELEASE WILL NOT WORK WITH YOUR COPIED STUFF!!!


However I did find something that can play imports and I think it's what you want. Here is the info on it.. download the actual thing from the attachment. :)

Belokk Presents

Title: DC-IMPORT ENABLER
Platform: Dreamcast
Date: 03/29/2003
Format: DiscJuggler v.4

Summary:

here is a rare item i got from my firend at interact the other day.
this disc came out around the end of the dc systems life span and was
only sold on the interact website. i now can bring you this release of a
hard to find disc. i want to thank my friend at interact for bringing me this.
also thanks to interact for the pass 8 years of accessories that they made for the
gameing industry you guy's will be missed. i hope everyone enjoy's this release.


History/Notes:

ok this disc is pretty self-explantory.

1. Place the disc in the dc, close the lid and power on.
2. When its done loadingand see the dc-ie screen, take the disc and swap it for your import game
3. Wait a few mins than press the start button, and your done

i know people have the dc-x but this is alot smaller image and works the same way,
just without the extra options. enjoy !

I've read about that and it's true for some games, but not all. Some people who had PAL games, it didn't work.
