Reicast the only Dreamcast emulator for Android. It is not perfect yet, but can already run many games.

No games or bios are included with this download, as this would be illegal. You have to dump the bios and games from your own dreamcast.

- "Photos/Media/Files" -> to read game images and bios
- "Camera/Microphone" -> for dreamcast microphone emulation
- "Device & app history" -> to read emulator crash logs. You can submit the logs via the included menu to help us solve issues.

- Create a folder named "reicast", and then a folder named "data" inside it. Put the bios (dc_boot.bin & dc_flash.bin) inside the data folder. Windows sometimes hides the file extention, so the filename might look like "dc_boot" on the windows explorer.

- Create a folder anywhere you want, and put the Dreamcast games in there. Reicast currently supports .gdi, .chd (v4), and .cdi disc formats, but .cdi is discouraged due to problematic compatibility.

- Open reicast and selet the "reicast" folder you created as system path.

- In order to save your game-play progress you will first need to format the memory cards. In order to do this you need to start the program, select the "boot bios" option, go to the "file" option, select the memory cards and then select the "delete all" option.

- Finally use the game navigator to locate your games. You can also setup a game path if you want to default to a specific folder.

- For further support & general questions, ask in

**Recommended specs**
- Cpu: Cortex-A9, Dualcore, 1.2ghz
- Gpu: Adreno, Tegra K1 or Mali400 gpus
- At least 512mb ram

    I like it but there's an issue with the memory card, I unlocked a couple of characters in soul calibur but when I went to play the game again it shows that I had no profile even though I made one.

    bios This is clearly highly unstable, configuring an xbox360 controller to it is a nightmare, it is not responding to any of the buttons, main reason I use/keep the app is because redream does not work on devices/computers with android x86 installed, all other emulators does work with this controller however, looks like development is calling it quits...

  3. Ognjen Milanovic-avatar

    games I used this for a long time when my phone couldn't run Redream. It runs perfectly normal. However, setting up the BIOS is kinda tricky. I putted in DC/data/BIOS then it tell me to put it in another folder with the same name. I do that and it tells me the same way like last time, but with another folder. Fix this.

    download It's very much worth learning to use. It makes Dreamcast games possible on older and or lower end Android devices. If the mainline version doesn't work for you try the ci builds. This is an app worth the small investment of time to learn.

  5. ツiLuvAllter-avatar



    roms Actually this app is perfect this runs on my old phone (actually is not very good but still runs perfectly) and on my now one and for sure is all ok but the only problem is when you open whatever game you have the inside have small problems like characters with a little bit bad resolution and the landscape too . That actually needs to be fixed as well. And the last problem is the versions os the reicast I used this one and it doesn't show the game but the last versions runs perfectly

  6. Andrew Nesterov-avatar

    windows It's good...provided you use an older version. This new update has actually resulted in less accuracy for games than older versions, on the Galaxy S8 anyway (such as Rayman 2 and Soul Calibre having flickering or broken textures and artifacts).

  7. Jono-avatar



    bios download Fantastic app! It's unreal that it's free to download. It's a little tricky to set up at first but if you take ten minutes to search for some instructions there are plenty online. You'll need a decent file manager app and something to unzip compressed files. It easy enough to find Dreamcast ROMs online for free download. Not all of them work perfectly but the majority of the ones I've tried do (still struggling with Shenmue II). I have this on my S8 and S4 tab and I play with an ipega 9021.

    apk This emulator is pretty good, but it has some bugs that affect my experience. # If I pause too much the emulation by bringing up the menu (the one with save states options, swap disc, etc), the app starts to get really slow, so i have to close and open it again to fix it. # If I load up a game, exit the game and load another one or try to enter the bios, the app freezes. It fixes by closing and opening it again. # with the .04 update, the vmu icon is glitchy (it didn't happen before that)

    pc Works well after you figure out the bios I downloaded this to play seaman and it works pretty well buttt you half to set the second option for contoller to microphone when you boot into seaman Considering i have a 30 dollar phone the proformace is pretty good I would put 5 stars but it has problems With applying game configs

    android Excellent accuracy and speed, however every time I either force exit the application or soft close and then close from recent applications, it clears all settings apart from BIOS location, so I have to set up games directory and video settings again. S9.

    They just make it worse every time. Every time I reinstall this emulator it looks completely different and gets less straight forward to set up each and every time. I'm sick of it. They need to stop redesigning this app >:( It runs games well though so if you don't care about the nightmarish set up then get it. If you want to play up dreamcast games quickly and simply then find something else

    Works great but im not sure if its just mvc2, but the audio is kinda slow. also when i exit the game and go back in to the game then it stops working so i have to close the app then open it up again works well tho.after using it for about a day went into settings and fixed the lag and audio but its still a little slow with the audio.and if i attack in mvc2 the frame rate drops a little bit the background also makes it slower but it works really good.Thanks (:

    Wow this thing is horrible, antiquated borderline unusable nonsensical GUI, overall very unfriendly, accurate and full speed emulation but FAR from an enjoyable or at least acceptable experience, scrollbars on touch screen devices? Come on guys!

    I like dreamcast games very much so i downloaded reicast emulator.I played many games by using it .But some problems really disapointed me. All games does not run very well.Also the touch controller is not like the exact same as the dreamcast's. And many people dont know how to put bios and run it. So fix these problems ASAP.

    I like the emulator alot. the audio is fine, it works perfectly, but the only thing that i didn't like is the size of the controls, whenever i play a light gun game like House of The Dead 2, I can't aim very properly and i take a hard time reloding and firing. just at least make the buttons fit in our thumbs. we're don't have small thumbs

    I tested re code Veronica on default settings and it ran at 25fps, I tried turning off some video settings but it didn't improve performance at all, so i am not sure if they work at all, I tried removing shadows and fog but the performance was exactly the same. Also I tried frame skipping but it seemed to make everything worse.

    I really like this app but when I was in the second level of Tails' story in Sonic Adventure The game just froze at one point and I tried going to the level again but the same thing happened. Please fix this bug.

  22. JesusLovesYou-avatar



    Why have you not fixed the graphical issues? This project should not be open source, people fix things and someone else removes the fixes!!! Terrible management is going to kill the app

    This is the worse emulator. When I'm playing resident evil code veronica, when I get two golden pistols key, I get error Softrend fatal error disabled, invalid code path In creat -> ./../../../libswirl/rend/gles/glestex.ccp and I checked your forums for a solution nothing found. There is no solution😡

    The virtual gamepad doesn't show up, and the external xbox controller doesn't seem to work either after being set up. A shame but hopefully those issues will be fixed. Content directory also seems to reset a launch.

    Like usual, no visual on virtual on screen keyboard. Even the dev himself redirect people to use redream which is much better in the current state (and you don't need bios too). Don't waste your time here.

  30. Anonymous Kirby-avatar

    Terrible. Just. TERRIBLE. Past versions of this emulator work perfectly fine with my phone. But this current version doesn't work in the slightest. For example, Sonic Adventure. That game works really well with the older versions (it runs at full speed). But it won't boot with this current version! In fact, it wouldn't even start the control editor. I setup everything perfectly (since I've used past versions) and yet it STILL didn't work. I thought Emulator updates were supposed to FIX problems, not CREATE them. NOTE: Before anyone says that my phone is weak, bear in mind that my phone can do Saturn emulation at full speed.

  31. Meme King-avatar

    This emulater is bad everytime I load sonic adventure it freezes and crashes and all so you should just need to download the app then download a rom like mupen64 (A n64 emu)

  32. Umario chan-avatar

    Umario chan


    It's good I guess. I mean it works, just that it may need a few tweaks here and there. An option to disable the vibrate would be nice. Action replay (both the full and demo version) crashes after the DC logo, codebreaker doesn't work and some weird textures during the actual game emulation (i.e. the forest and the map going outside the border for PSOv2 etc). If possible maybe integrate the cheat engine inside the game as with other emulators. More control customization would be cool too.

  33. Music Bomb-avatar

    Music Bomb


    This emulator is very fun no issues but a little lag can ruin the mood but other than that i played Sonic adventure and it was super smooth yes cutscenes were slow but the game works! And yes this emulator has a buildt in memory card so you dont need to save state just a tap and your off!

  34. Lo Bang-avatar

    Unfortunately Reicast doesnt work anymore on the Nvidia Shield portable so if you're using one, you are gonna have to pass on this one. When the emulator did work, it worked pretty good. Just rather unfortunate for me that once the emulator released it had never gotten an update after that, and once it did years later, it stopped working on my main device.

  35. Jv9-avatar



    Like all emulators there are some (a silver) games that force close at a certain point in game/random or not work at all. But don't get deterred by that as there are tons of games that run fine. The menu is simple enough to navigate and setting up the bio took a good min (<30 sec) if you know what to do along with setting up where to add them and the roms (google is your friend).

  36. Blu DJ-avatar

    Blu DJ


    I have to clear game data and then erase the memory file from the BIOS every time I switch games (or the app restarts) if I want to use the memory card slot(s). Games like S.A2 will run without the memory card so that's fine (but only the first time. If you go back to it, it will say you don't have a memory card and basically soft lock.) but games like Marvel vs Capcom 2 need the memory card from the beginnig or it won't move from the start up screen that says it is missing.

  37. Jordan Bouzeneris-avatar

    while I do appreciate the effort the Android port has gotten over the past few years (particularly the integrated ime), it's still not on par with even the linux port. multicore is broken on anything but whatewer they must be developing on. the physics floating point crunching on the dynamic recompiler breaks sonic adventure the second you get to an angled spring, or THE SEWER. Most importantly, it doesn't exit cleanly with no reset button in sight so get ready to set time date & framerate alot

    It isn't a particularly easy emulator to get going, but once you do get it to go, it works like a charm. Games are emulated excellently. Tested SA2 and it was wonderful. Got all the way through the third level, Prison Lane with 0 issues. There is an issue with the emulator the instructions neglected to go over regarding the buttons. You have to find a button layout from the internet(super easy btw) and drop the image file into the reicast folder otherwise the buttons are invisible. Great overall

    Great emulator, but the latest version completely broke it. Before, I loved playing games like Sonic Adventure on it, but now, I can't even get past the initial set up because it's completely mangled. You can even manually type in the directories or even follow the user guide on their website & it just keeps asking for you to set a home folder no matter how many times you set said directories. One star until its fixed, but it was definitely worth five stars in previous versions.

  40. Austin-avatar



    Used to be a great emulator. But with a recent update the UI completely changed for the worse. It seems like the UI want even made for a mobile device and is some poor port of the PC version. Also the virtual gamepad that used to work fine is now invisible and I can't make it visible again; thus making this emulator useless on a mobile device.

    several years ago i played Skies of Arcadia and Grandia 2 on Reicast on my shield portable. they ran amazing. now I can barely get skies of Arcadia to run. its full of graphical issues and sound issues that weren't there before. neither game with boot with the dynamic recompiler. i have to run with interpreter and then switch to dynamic once I'm in game. that only works to get it running, but it crashes again with scene changes. How is it that games that used to work flawlessly on here atleast 2 years ago now barely function on my shield portable (same device) after updating the emulator. very disappointing. I really wish I had kept the old version of the emulator, this just sucks, really wanted to play through these games again.

  42. ChainMan-avatar



    This emulator is great! I finally understood the instructions (really should work on those) and i was playing Jet Grind Radio and Rayman 2: the great escape with minor problems. One of them being that, in the last update, you changed how the lighting is proscessed, and it totaly ruins it. There are slowdowns everywhere and the games are freaking out when you walk into a shadow or to much comes on screen. You should add an option for prscessing power, if possible.Anyway, sorry for the long review

    A fair app! So far the pre-downloaded games (from the cloud) works fine. But I can't figure out how to add new games such as Shemnue. Since it comes in multiple disks I downloaded the main (all in one file) but they don't come in the GDI und or CDI file, thus it refuses to show up on the library list. I have attempted to change the file name to GDI/CDI but that doesn't seem to work either, mind helping? And keep up the good work!

  44. Alberto Echevarria-avatar

    Menu section is bad, missing virtual buttons, frame drops when you select fps on screen and horizontal stretch as well. Also, it won't save your settings on the main menu on reicast section. If you leave it by the default, It does runs 60 frames per second. In other words, don't touch the default settings of reicast menu.

  45. Patricia Bucog-avatar

    this emulator can be the best in other dreamcast emulator however it has a lot of problems in it like right now im playing Shenmue as i progress there's this kind of error and it forcely stops (inimp reached and failed) it's hard to get all over again, and dont know when that inimp is gonna show it just pops out, and put savestates not only in the game itself please i really want to finish this game, so hard to game over and over and over so to be fair 3 star please fix it and updated it!

    I understand why so many people give this app a low's not "easy" to get working. However, one you get it working the performance is very impressive. If they could get the controller/interface bugs ironed out I would GLADLY give it a 5 star. I mean, when you think about's Dreamcast on a phone! Plus, it's the ONLY DC emu. Plus, IT'S FREE! I guess it SHOULD get a 5, considering those points, but it' just so godam buggy. Can't wait to change my rating though. I'll keep an eye out for dem updates boi! Most importantly, THANKS REICAST DEVS!!!

    Nice update. Somewhat buggy and confusing but otherwise it is good so far. Kudos to the developer for adding support for NBA 2K2. Please, please, pretty please fix the NFL 2K2 support. That particular rom does not load. Controller settings need to be reset each time and instructions for set-up aren't quite clear but I figured it out. Looking forward to future development. Also, there is inconsistency. Works on Samsung but not Motorola. Won't load bios.

  48. IrrelevantYTP-avatar



    I Love this emulator. There is a major problem, though. When I first installed this emulator, it was great. I loaded the BIOS, a couple of ROMs, and it was working just fine. But then the next day, it wasn't letting me load the games, BIOS, and the application was crashing. So as much as I love this emulator, I had to reduce my rating due to the fact that it was crashing. (And still is).

  49. Michael Strick-avatar

    Michael Strick


    It's a good emulator, does what it's suppose to, the reason for 4 star is because there is no options to lower quality or make it better, there just just no video settings is what I'm trying to say, I get a steady 30 FPS at all times, but sometimes I spike from 60 to 30 to 40 to 50 to 30... And also the frame counter is inaccurate, it doesn't update ... If you guys can come out with an update where I can change video settings to I don't spike as much, I'll change to 5 star..

  50. Jeffrey Robertson-avatar

    Jeffrey Robertson


    just not good, they need to include a bios or make it so it's not needed like most emulators. another thing setting up a file derectory is almost in possible. I can't say much about any other fetures as this is the only emulator that I couldn't get to work on my device. I would love for reicast to fix these problems, then I might get to try out a Dreamcast game!

    Works great with the games that work with it. There are a few that don't seem to run, but being able to play most of the games from my favourite console on my phone is great. Not a huge fan of the new UI, nowhere near as intuitive as the previous one, but still plays brilliantly. Sadly the latest update has ruined everything. It's just crashes, won't let me chose any games, and just starts on a random game on launch. Hopefully this can be sorted soon.

    Ok so I only installed this to play Shenmue. It works moderately well, with some minor glitches most of which is because my my device isn't up to date I think. My only problem is that when I connect it with a controller the joystick control isn't working. Which renders many game unplayable with a controller. My other biggest complain is that it doesn't have a save feature or if it does have it I couldn't find it.

    Reicast ist one of the best emulators on my smart phone but i don't like this update. Because reicast will not work any more after updating, either not regconize bios file or won't load game. If anyone has the same problem , then you should replace the current version of reicast by older version , e.x r.7 ver, second step : put two bios files "dc_boot.bin ", "dc_flash.bin" inside folder dc/data or reicast/data, third step is turn off auto-update feature of goole play or third-party app store.

    I have found a bug that makes this unplayable. I started a game (Sonic Adventure 2) and I couldn't see any of my onscreen buttons. It worked, as in I could still press them, just couldn't see them. I checked the settings to see that I had no selectable on-screen button themes. I checked my Android System folder and there was no reicast folder whatsoever. As soon as you fix this, I shall update my rating accordingly.

    I have tried every new version of this emulator, hoping that they will fix all the bugs in it, but so far this app is useless. The virtual keyboard is invisible and no amount of tinkering with the settings will change that. I have almost every other emulator out there, including the PS1 & PS2 and they run just fine with on-screen virtual controls. I don't see why it is so difficult to fix this problem. All other emulators have virtual controls by default. Everyone complains about this

    I love this app. I don't really know what is Sega Dreamcast at first but this app let me play some awesome games from the console that once conpetes PS2. Since there's no stable emulator for PS2 so this one is a great alternative to that. But the problem is that this app can't emulate the titles made by SNK properly (the on screen controls isn't working properly). Please fix this. Thanks.

    Just updated this, I couldn't play before as the touch screen controls (mainly for the analog control) made this unplayable. After realising that Bluetooth controllers can connect to android, I tried using a switch joycon to connect. The stick seems to want to stay assigned to the D-pad function, and can't be used to play the game. After updating to this new version, it's not very user friendly, and seems to crash or buttons don't do anything, even after lighting up

    im sorry to bother you but im having an issue, i have the bios set up correctly, except when i start a game it just shows a black screen for a few seconds and then crashes, if you could please fix this problem id greatly appreciate it, ill rate higher when its fixed, never had this problem until the previous update

    This Dreamcast emulator is great! It takes me back alot. The only complain I can give it though is when I'm playing some games where it plays any cutscenes the audio mostly keeps making a lot of cracking sounds other then that it's still very playable with many games I have overall minus some graphical glitches if anyone is having screen glitch problem with RE Code Veronica in the submarine just use the map to navigate where your players heading to get to the door to the next room hope it helps.

    Not perfect, but if you're dying to play PSO, Sonic, HOTD 2, etc, it DOES WORK. It has some issues with framerate at the moment. I've tried turning off the limiter (WARP SPEED!), and adjusting the frame skip (makes it worse), but overall, a decent emulator that allows me to play games from my favorite console ever. Thank you!!!

    The new build crashes a lot on Shenmue I. That didn't happen on the r6 version before. I was looking for improvements on the latest build but its a mess. And also, Ryo's face is still glitiching on Shenmue I. If you can fix the UI and the Bugs within the emulator, that would be awesome. Thanks for the update though!

    Works fine gameplay wise there's a few bugs here and there on some games like code veronica when you go down underground near submarine stage when entering the hallway you will get a full glitch room where you can't see squat to get thru it you memorize that map where to go. Also the luger room the monitors pov is glitched. Bluestinger freezes in mid stage, berserker the controls aren't functioning in Bluetooth and every cgi scenes in every game the scuffed audio and lag always happens.

    Unlike Redream, this dreamcast emulator is very complicated. It's a challenge to even EMULATE the game. Not to mention the shity controls. If you want a GOOD dreamcast emulator, I suggest you get redream.

    It doesn't work on my Coolpad Legacy. I made the "reicast" folder and put "data" inside of it, then I put dc_boot.bin and dc_flash.bin inside the "data" folder, but Everytime I try to run the bios, it says it isn't there! Maybe it's because I have another folder called data, but I really don't know. Fix this, and I'll leave an actual review. But for now, this is all I have to say.

    Save state freezes games. Particularly sonic adventure. Many games freeze during gameplay. I would like to use save state data. Developer needs to fix this buggy update.

  72. Duane Price-avatar

    Great App. Love it can't wait for more improvements. What would be great if this app had cloud storage where if you ever switched to different devices your save files would come along with it. Also quick save within the app just in case you weren't able to save in the game. Then this would be a excellent app.

  73. Cragetzimmer-avatar



    After a recent update, my save states are no longer recognised and now crash the emulator. I've had to opt out of beta and reinstall the stable version. Obviously I now have to mess around with memory cards from backup. For me, it's the saves that are most annoying. Hours spent on games which are possibly now lost. Ridiculous.

    Runs fine on the shield and plays nice with DIG. Runs better than the retroarch core. Make sure you follow the instructions. But I have to agree with others that, once the game is loaded, it appears a bit too dark, would be cool if that could be fixed.

  75. Karma-avatar



    I revised my old comment. Overall the app is great & it's the best Dreamcast emulator on the market and the Devs really care about the public and openly reply back to concerns. I give it 5/5! Edit: New bug. After using the Save State feature up to four times or more the games begin to glitch and frame rate drops to insane levels and become unplayable.

    I dont know if this latest update needs to be updated more or my oppo f3 plus phone is a bit slow for this emulator. My phone can run the latest ppsspp very well in vulkan or open gl mode. Tekkens 5 and 6 run 60 fps, gran turismo, ridge racer, soul calibur, moto gp all run at their full fps. Why not update this using opengl/vulkan support. This emu seems buggy as hell. Ive tested dolphin and demonsp2 pro sure games are in slow mo but tekken tag on damon ps2 pro or mario sunshine, windwaker or what not in dolphin dont seem to have any bugs. Maybe its just this emulator. Devs please add resolution configuration in the settings menu. Also, other emulators have 4 x 3 aspect ratio without the flickering. Maybe I'll add 2 more stars if the emulator has the same features like the ppsspp, yabause, dolphin, epsxe, or damon ps2 pro.

    the update has significantly improved my reicast experience. thank you x99999 for putting your time and effort back in this project. every single one of you is incredibly appreciated! some games work even better now. for the longest time SA2 would not recognize my left analog stick input on my gamepad (xb1 Controller) even after mapping the inputs successfully. keep up the good work!😃

    This is by far the best emulator for anyone missing Virtua Fighter 3, Space Channel 5, the list goes on and on. Some games are unplayable, like Ecco has distance issues, but Soul Reaver and Skies of Arcadia work beautifully. Can't wait to see how this evolves.

  79. Brock Boyle-avatar

    I really like your emulator, but I am having issues with the controls. The on-screen controls don't show but their touch-boxes are still there so I get confused where to press, and when I try to hook up my Gamepad I set up the controls and then it doesn't work. Sadly I can only give 2 stars. If you can fix this, please. If this is of any help, I'm using a Huawei MediaTab.

    Wow. I was really impressed when i got Sonic Adventure working amazingly on my galaxy S4. I love the adventure games. Now i can play it anywhere. Although it takes time to get it working,its all worth it. This is the only dreamcast emulator out there. Congrats reicast team.✌

    This app from a development standpoint- not even talking about emulation ability or performance, but the APP itself- is a serious mess. I honestly don't think I've ever used an app on Android, let alone an emulator on any platform, with this many bugs. The UI is simply problematic. I'll stick to Demul on PC for now.

    After seeing so many negative reviews I was hesitant, but Shenmue 1 runs like a dream. A few graphical issues, but that's to be expected of emulation. Anyone who can't get this working - it's most likely an issue on your end. And for the price of totally free with no ads, I couldn't ask for better.

  86. CloudChaser-avatar



    HEY developer, will there ever be a fix for L2/R2 on HiD controllers? Also beta still crashes on Moto E4 (7.1.1) (if the app isn't working right try deleting the cache/data and restart, trust me when it works it WORKS) It's a bit complicated to set up, however it's SO worth it. I have Sonic Adventure 2 running at 60fps widescreen HD on my Moto E4, occasional sound issues but nothing that ruins the experience! Two player however gets screwed up when using two controllers.

    Works for some games, doesn't for others. Some of the games i used to play on DC certainly aren't mainstream, and thise are the ones I'm looking to play here cos they haven't been released. For example, UEFA striker works fine, but wwf attitude doesn't at all.

    I will Test the dreamcast web browser 2.0, it has no keyboard, I will use the controller, but my recommendations is in-app keyboard and mouse, I'm so disappointed without keyboard and mouse, Can You Add DSL Emulation pretty please?.

    Current version does not load CDI images. It goes straight to BIOS instead, making the emulator useless! Previous version loaded games, albeit with lag (on a OnePlus 5, no-less). The UI is also buggy as hell. You can't even choose a specific directory for games meant for the emulator! Reicast worked great before Android Nougat arrived. WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED?! Uninstalled.

  91. Edward-avatar



    Edit: Uninstalled to use redream Dreamcast emulator instead. Review: Works, but audio crackles very badly. More audio settings are needed. Also, some games run too fast and have graphical glitches. As mentioned in another review, virtual controls work, but are hidden. Please test your app and fix these issues.

  92. JaZon Zantos-avatar

    The app works great, the only issue i have is with two external controllers assigned. For example, if I play MVC2 with two players, characters won't jump at the same amount or a character would be jumping even though no buttons were pressed.

  93. Caleb Joe Harmon-avatar

    Caleb Joe Harmon


    Frameskipping is too choppy even when its set to 1, but it runs code Veronica kinda good on my LG tribute HD with frameskip off, so It's still an impressive app. P.s. if you can have the app just open with a default directory already set, that would be cool because on my tablet the screen is damaged and it won't let me select a directory with my keyboard when i first start the app.

    I use this on shield tv, love the new widescreen support that actually looks great!, Everything still works only issue ive noticed is i tried crazy taxi and the screen when in gameplay is dark as hell. Dissapointing cause makes it unplayable it looks like its night time in the city lol

    The app crashes when idisable the onscreen gamepad. I have an USB C to HDMI adapter & an Dualshock 4 controller, so would love to be able to play on my tv, or simply play via the controller. i can't recommend this emulator until this is fixed. im able to use my preferred set-up with other emulators for other systems.

    Despite a few bugs, and a few dreamcast games not working on it, this is a really good dreamcast emulator. And it works really well, on my samsung galaxy android tablet. I recommend to all dreamcast fans, to check it out.

    it works perfectly! It runs smoothly ! I have only two big problems with this emulator (hence only 4 stars) 1. No save states... why? 2. No cheats... RECVX has a bug at the tiger statue so it is impossible to complete the game without cheating...

  100. Nathaniel Marion-avatar

    Is there no way to change the button layout? The layout is too small and too far apart, though I will say this app has HUGELY improved over the years, and even recently compared to last year. Power Stone 2 is much easier to play and the fog effect works now which is great.

    It keeps crashing on me now. I'll sit here for like one match in Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 and then it'll crash. It now crashes when I try to load Resident Evil Code Veronica, which of course it didn't before. It's just now that every game I load up, it crashes.

    As of writing this on 7th April 2020, under release 20.02, using the 'gles' renderer causes polygon sorting artifacts, while 'gl41' which has per pixel sorting would crash the app... The changelog for 20.04 mentions that the initialization for 'gl41' has been fixed in that release, I hope that the Android port gets updated soon

    Sonic adventure 2 runs at 60 fps on my Galaxy A10e but sonic adventure 1 seems to crash and not able to be played lost potential for those not knowing how to set up the bios Make a folder that says dc make sure it's in your internal storage not external or else it won't work next make a folder within DC and name it data once you do that you must look up the bios dc_boot.bin and dc_flash.bin set them both in that order within the "data "folder that set location in the root folder to dc

  105. WarpStar-avatar



    Easily the most frustrating emulator. First it was finding a bios which is pretty standard. Then the roms wouldnt show up. Then the virtual controller doesnt show up. That's about when I gave up. One of the worst experiences with an emulator I've ever had

    Couldn't manage to get it to work. Games wouldn't play, just freeze on a black screen as soon as you click onto a Rom you downloaded. Tried: sonic, ill bleed, resident evil, house of the dead, carriers, crazy taxi. Nothing would work

    Once you get this started it works like a charm. I was finally able to play a game I couldn't play for years! It could be a bit more user friendly but if you know a thing or two about electronics you should be able to get around fine.

  109. LazyLasagna-avatar



    Set up everything correctly. Put in the BIOS in the data folder and tried to play Jet Set Radio.gdi . All it does is force close. Doesn't work.

    It is the only 32 bit dreamcast emulator for android. As for glitches, unless your android device is 64 bit and supports per-pixel rendering....not even Redream can help you play any game without any graphics bug. Go play them on your pc or laptop instead.

    So insanely broken. The speed is kinda back, but if you mess with any serious setting like the number of threads etc, you get stuck permanently crashing after the dreamcast logo, where even uninstalling wont fix it. So, im basically screwed now. Great.

    Well, from what I've seen from others, it looks great, but, whenever I try to play Sonic Adventure, the app crashes all together, I'd give a higher rate if you could fix this issue

  114. Skylancer727-avatar



    Works fantastic, even has a functional wide screen hack that seems as functional as the better adventure mod for Sonic Adventure so culling occurs outside the borders. Only wish is that touch controls were better but I'm sure that's a limitation of touch screens and not this specific control scheme.

  115. Crystal Shepperd-avatar

    i have a Verizon Elipsis 8 tablet and downloaded Reicast from the app store on google android. Got everything going, the bios and downloaded some games. Unfortunately the games need to be in cdi format which sucks. Once i get them in cdi, the games don't all work. Then i have an external controller that's bluetooth that doesn't connect completely. The dpad or joystick doesn't function at all so that sucked. Then it crashed. Ugggh!!!! Please fix these issues. i'm all excited to play these games.

    Needs an improvement to the controls (mainly the l thunbstick since it is a sqaure and makes some games highly difficult to play) and the controller option needs a fix to make it work. Other than that it works fine once you install the bios correctly
