Good day everyone i thought id write about "some news" about a feature in the original Sa 1 & 2 that few people had the chance to experience.
Anyone who has played the Dreamcast versions of these games will have noticed an "Internet" option in the bottom of the main menu, this would lead to a website with a whole bunch of things to do.
My background is from the Dreamcast online community and one of the projects iv been "involved" is in the revival of these websites so everyone can enjoy them!
But your thinking "wait the Sonic Adventure games only supported the modem and not the broadband adapter, i don't have dial up!" fret not the Dc community has a solution which i will talk about at the bottom.
Huge props to Dan and Jial on Dreampipe.net for being the key components on bringing back these sites as they did almost all the work
