How do you get Dreamcast to play in HD? Do you have to get some kind of VGA cable or something? I'll probably just pick up scart cable next month (going to try finish off Blue Stinger) but come 2012 I may attempt to make my DC look sharper.

Unless you use an emulator I don't think you can.

With VGA you get a stunningly crisp picture though, all games play at 60hz too (the 50/60hz menu disappears from the games and even 50hz games play in 60hz).

People mod their dreamcasts so they can use VGA.

I just bought an adaptor, it's not a mod, they used to sell them in all the shops.

I've seen a mod where you make your own VGA port and put it where the internet adaptor is.

You don't have to put it where the modem was. Also, it's relatively straightforward and cheap. Parts look like they'd cost under a fiver. Although it does require some soldering skills. Dreamcasts themselves can be picked up for a pittance. I'll be having a go when I have some time.

(I know this post is quite old but ehh) Wow I didn't know that! That'd be great for games like Skies of Arcadia which is 50Hz only.

Seriously thinking of shifting my whole Dreamcast collection. It doesn't get played and probably never will ever again.
Anyone interested? It includes the following, plus more:

Original Dreamcast Console Boxed
2 X Controllers
3 X VMU's
1 Vibration Pack
Shenmue
Shenmue 2
Sonic Adventure
Crazy Taxi
Crazy Taxi 2
Sega Rally 2
Daytona USA 2001
GAME VGA Adaptor
Sega GT
Jet Set Radio

Sorry, have reposted this in the Trade-In section.
