Proper SEGA Dreamcast emulation

Ahh, yes, the SEGA Dreamcast mentioned one more time... Lovely. Only this time, it's PC owners with retro gaming tendencies that should be more appreciative of this humblest of posts, as it's not about any newly announced Dreamcast shmup, homebrew game or the latest version of ScummVM DC. No, not at all. It's about having the Dreamcast properly emulated on your PC. It's about the release of nullDC v.1.0.0, the best freeware Dreamcast emulator mankind has ever known.

You can freely download nullDC here and expect it to run many commercial games, but know that you will also need the Dreamcast bios and flash files (dc_bios.bin and dc_flash.bin). If you own an actual console, here's how to extract said files. Otherwise, a nice google search will definitely come in handy. Oh, and don't forget to rename dc_bios.bin to dc_boot.bin, for such are the whims of nullDC.
