(As of August 26, Reicast is available for Windows. Since the NullDCe leaked alpha is completely irrelevant, I merged the PC and Mobile tables.)
(Emulators: Replaced Dreamcast column with WinCE column, and mentioned reicast in Comparisons because it's a fork of nullDC)

The Sega Dreamcast and controller

The Dreamcast is a 6th generation console released by Sega in November 1998 in Japan and later in 1999 in other territories. Naomi is an arcade system board, which is very similar to the Dreamcast. Some Dreamcast emulators have support for it as well. Atomiswave is an arcade system board that is based upon Naomi.

Emulators

Name Operating System(s) Latest Version Naomi Atomiswave Windows CE Recommended
DEmul Windows 0.582
reicast Android, Linux, Windows Dev builds ? ?
nullDC Windows 1.0.4 r150
Makaron Windows T12/5
Chankast Windows 0.25
Lxdream Linux, OS X 0.9.1
nullDCe Android Leaked Alpha

Comparisons

  • DEmul has the highest compatibility and is the most accurate Dreamcast emulator, but there may be some games that work better on NullDC or reicast, so it's a good idea to try them all.
  • Makaron is the only Dreamcast emulator that can properly play games which use Windows CE.

Emulation issues

Dreamcast emulation is okay, but nothing great. Some games work well, but many have problems and glitches.
