I have been looking for this FOREVER ive been looking ever since i got my Dreamcast and guess what? I still havent found it...What is this im so depserate for?

Something that i can burn to a CD (along with the 800+ VMU Files i have) and then load into my Dreamcast and somehow get the files onto my VMU!!!

There is no program that does *exactly* what you want but I do have a solution :(

http://nextgl.ngemu....mu/VMITool.html download vmi tool

You must have both files for each save (the VMI and the VMS files)

VMItool will create an HTML file with links to all the corresponding saves. All you then need to do is burn all this onto a cd-r along with a web browser. this way you can "download" the saves onto your VMU while using the browser on your DC. You won't actually have to be online at all!

You can download the free webbrowser at http://homebrew.dcem...om/xdp/xdp.html

It sounds complicated but it is pretty straight forward, so give it a try.

yep it works, another way to do it is i put VMU saves on my website hosting and download from there

but this disc way is easier, sometimes the site generator is retarded and names them wrong and you have to fix them though
