I need a emulator to run a game. I went on to google and found this site. I went on to the Dreamcast emulators and clicked on chankast alpha. The files are small, are these the right ones? I don't know how to set it up because after I have downloaded the files there isn't any installation files or anything.

I downloaded a game the file is called DC - Dreamcast - Capcom Vs SNK 2 (cdi selfboot) first thing is I don't know how this will work and the file is extracted from a rar file.

make sure you have the right bios files and plugins. You need those before you can run any games.

I can't post any link to the DC BIOS because it's not allowed. (http://forums.emulator-zone.com/rules.php?). Use Google (www.google.com).

The DC Bios are basically two files: dc_bios.bin and dc_flash.bin. Note that are region specific (USA, Euro, Japan), so might have other extension, just rename & use the one one you prefer, don't unzip the others.

The run your DC iso, you need to unzip/unrar it, then emulate it with a CD/DVD emulator such Daemon Tools (www.daemon-tools.cc). Now you can load run game, if it's self boot as you said

You can find very good guides on www.chanka.org

In the Chankast help file there many tips, also the Chankast site (chanka.org) have many excellent tutorials, as I told you before. I'd give a try.

Btw, can you tell us your PC specs? In particular, CPU, amount & RAM speed and graphics card matter. Operating System and DirectX version would be good to know too.
