Sega Dreamcast (Redream)Link
redream is a work-in-progress SEGA Dreamcast emulator written in C for Mac, Linux and Windows.
This core requires OpenGL 3.3 or higher in order to work. RetroArch's video driver must be set to OpenGL. Go to Settings -> Driver. If the ‘video driver’ is set to something else or than 'gl', switch to ‘gl’, and then restart.
Note for macOS users: There is currently no ‘working’ macOS version available. This is because this core requires OpenGL core 3.3 context, and RetroArch on macOS currently does not support this. We will have to add support for this to a future version of RetroArch on macOS before this core will start to work on it.
