Dreamcast reset issues resolved

Jim brought over his old Dreamcast so that we could check out the K-Project Beta. We then decided to play some old games such as: Daytona USA 2001, Marvel vs. Capcom, Space Channel 5, and Crazy Taxi.

Unfortunately, his Dreamcast kept randomly resetting. Irritated, we dug up my Dreamcast and gave that a go. Same problem! Ack! I know that this is a common issue and decided to check the Internet for a solution.

I came across various solutions involving different levels of screwdrivering and the like, but this solution stood out:

For those of you without the bandwidth to see the video; it basically indicates that you should give the Dreamcast a few quick smacks on the backside (“naughty console! stop resetting!”) to make it behave. It worked a treat!

Conclusion: Victory!

BTW: Crazy Taxi is still awesome!

Vice President, Australia

These days I only seem to post to this blog when I have something to tell my friends and family. Thankfully, it’s generally good news!

I’m now a Vice President at Interzone Games, in charge of Australian operations. This means that I’m responsible for operating the Perth Studio and managing the game development team here.

A year ago, I never thought that I would be so personally invested in the company. I was a programmer who wanted to work in games, but also adamant that I wanted to keep my work and personal life separate. I still do keep things separate to a degree, but my commitment to the success of Interzone and my responsiblities to employees are always on my mind.

On a more personal note, work and the people there are a huge part of my life. It’s been fantastic watching the company grow into what it is now, and I’m proud to have been (and continue to be) a part of that.
