    Can you run (Selfboot) CDI games on DC emulators?
    Do I "have to" burn anything to a cd? Because I just want to play on my computer with the emulator? No cd burning bs. What is a (Selfboot) CDI?
    Im new at all this.. Help me?

    Yes you can run Selfbootable CDI games on DC emulator (Chankast).
    CDI is a discjuggler file and the (Selfboot) means that it boots by itself.
    It dosen't need a program to make it selfbootable.

    Do I have to burn anything? or Is it just like arcade roms where you just launch the emu and load the game and play?

    just use daemon tools to make a virtual drive(fake drive) then mount the image on DT and choose the DT drive letter in chanka and start it up. then it should work.
    Ok, now I really don't have anything to put in here -.-

    Perphaps it's not selfboot, not every CDI file is: CDI only means it's a DiscJuggler format. Also the game might not be correctly emulated or it has a Echelon intro.

    To run non selfboot games, you need the Dreamcast BootCD aka Utopia Boot Disc: Run it first on Chankast with the Daemon Tools virtual drive, when it loads change the emulated image for your game. Make a google or forum search to find it, and use the 1.1 version if possible

    About the Echelon intro, check this thread

    1) Get the Utopia Boot Disc 1.1 and DC bios files (dc_bios.bin & dc_flash,bin), unzip both on the Chankast folder

    2) Load the Utopia Boot Disc first on Daemon Tools, start Chankast and emulation, then wait until this screen appears
    Spoiler »


    3) Swap the UBD with your CDI iso file, and wait some seconds. Hopefully it will work.
