Over a whole year on and not much has happened, The availability of these discs is so few and far between and they are proving really difficult to track down some 10+ years on. I did have one slice of luck finding what I've found to be the hardest DC hibaihin to track down, The illusive 1999 Tokyo M...

The tech info is at the bottom of the page, Some people have made internal/external sd card readers and there is a fair bit of info on the various English language DC Dev sites too.

There is a solution of sorts and assuming you could boot strap them to even start on the DC then potentially you might be able to utilise the recent SD card adapter as some kind of solid state solution. I did think about this a few years back but it would be an interesting project to see the Atomisw...

No, You have to wear a cardboard box and run around Sega's Joypolis Naked without being caught while taking pictures of the games on loke test.

It was given out just after D-Direct had transitioned into Sega Direct, I'm not sure what the requirement was to have one sent out though.

And it was probably a software problem, You shouldn't have any trouble with that hardware setup.

Got very lucky recently and managed to find the D-Direct Shenmue 2 demo sealed for a measly $10.

I'm close to the 230 mark now but I've just discovered another 20+ that I didn't know existed so realising theres another subsection of very scarce discs is quite harsh.

My latest demo haul arrived. A total mystery... the Bangai-O disc is identical to that of the retail release. Same disc in every way. The insert is a single card, with controller instructions on the back. Was that controller instructions on the rear cd case insert or on the rear of the single sheet...

If I remember rightly you only get to play a few levels then it pops up with a coming soon graphic. Here's my latest pickup...

There are two release types of the Bangaio trial. I've got the same one with the single sheet front cover, There is also on that came sealed without the front or rear and has the same model number as the final retail version with no marking to indicate its a trial. http://img143.imageshack.us/img143...

Has anyone definately seen trial versions of Ready 2 Rumble and SFIII: 3rd Strike?

There seems to be alot of bad information about these two on various Japanese websites.

That early Beta of DC Rez (K-Project/Vibez) was made available last year and has the underworld tracks on the bosses.

Yeah it was a Yahoo pickup, No insert and sealed disc only just like the first one. I think it was something like 2400yen. I was genuinely surprised to see it as well. I can't remember where I saw the SH4 disc but I'm sure I remember seeing it with some documents or another disc which I had never se...

I've been picking up DC hibaihin items over the last 10 years and even I'm still surprised by what new items turn up that I've never heard of. Sega had this ability to push forward concepts years before anyone else and the DC was home to its fair share: CSK Health Insurance Union Edition with the No...
