We Truly Are In The Prime Of This Series!

History Is Important. Real Knowledge Is Also Important. So Is Archiving Which Is Also Very Important!


Way way way back around beginning off 2010, there was a certain Dead or Alive 2 mod available for the Dreamcast. Little did I know about modding myself. I'd read up on who was behind this golden treasure who was behind "Ultimate Edition"? His name was Mr. Green Ranger. After tracking him down on his YouTube channel. I questioned everything I could about this game. What we all should get playable for the next big mod update! Okay he was kind enough to answer me back to all my burning questions.


We got something going too, my request for a Dreamcast T-Shirt paid off much later on! I've found out he was posting on a now long forgotten totally lost Dreamcast forum room.

At that time there was another name Dee4doa, yep the same member here.

Over those old times, Mr. Green Ranger & Dee4doa were both together posting every week with something brand new! I was overlooking whole progress personally. Any new news on the next release date.


Years went by nothing wasn't happening! Can we bring over the Hard*Core levels?!?!?! That Light Was Burning Away.

Well that was until September 2015, the Final release from Mr. Green Ranger came out with no real fanfare.

Now was my time to finally start learning the trade, the modding business! I went on that forum room, took nearly all the key information.

Then I got myself a Hex Editor just dived in forwards.......Okay this was struggle a mile here.

The website was long gone sadly, the Wayback Machine didn't save the website.

Thankfully I did save what was needed with all important Hex Address's.


Lets Skip too end off 2020, The Atomiswave craze was taken upon a storm.

This was a big key thing as learned more about the SD Serial Adapter. This Device plugs in the back off your Dreamcast basically acts as a GDI readable playing thingy!

That good Device alone has helped me out with this entire mod series! Building up the GDI's by myself after knowing full well DoA2 was playable by using the SD Serial Adaptor.

Everything was gelling up rewiring everything my mindset was set on.

Part One, Final 2021/Tengu Edition came out October 2021.

Now Today? Thirty-One Chapters Worth Now.


You get THREE Builds worth off content with full off New Costumes, Music, Dialogue & Stages. My Main Goal was the overall Presentation itself.

I may not be the top talent of this Mod Community. Oh boy have I done my Absolutely Best to Overhaul this Legendary Game from top to bottom!

Alot more to do & discover though.


Yeah I still have certain Dream List. Like seeing those unused Cut Scenes, fixable DoA3 Stances, those Hard*Core Exclusive Features, PS2 Stages like restoring that Dojo stage, Tengu's Holding Staff, Bayman CPU, more C1 updates, a New Tag Team Stage, Raidou & India models restored ingame use and add more weather effects for the White Storm like the PS2 did! Fixing Background Wallpapers For Widescreen Play. PS2 Hard*Core English Dub Available On The Dreamcast Too ,Why Not Eh?!

Okay I know this is all possible but that's out off my range.

Checkout the Screenshots & Videos too please!


For All The CDI's & GDI's, U Need. Back Up The Newest Releases If You Want Too.

This Works On Real Dreamcast Hardware & Emulators!

Where to read up everything that's been posted by Mr. Green Ranger & myself overhypely.

Page 7, 8 & 19 for those Hex Address's!

The Dreamcast Junkyard Blog, they did a nice enough writeup for this long time ago now.

I Love Dead or Alive 2 on the Dreamcast just as much as Shenmue 1 & 2.

Since 2000, I've been thinking about this everyday. I think about why couldn't we have Dead or Alive: Hard*Core on the Dreamcast?!

The Dreamcast can do what the PlayStation 2 can do!

So Yeah That's Been My Main Goal, My Reality My Today For Everyone To Play.

I've Done All I Can. Yes Hopefully Can Keep On Moving Forwards So Please Enjoy.

Five By Five!

Backtrack on the Redream issue! Okay over on the Dreamcast-Talk you can grab this Boot.bin Zip thanks to MoeFoh, very top post. The Original Bio file was needed to play Dead or Alive 2, now you can play my mods thats the CDI builds. Kinda been a major issue with the Emulator not playing any DoA2 CDI at all. I've added the Zip on the Cursed Danger CDI page too.

Only 1mb Download, add the file to where it needs to go. Place it in Redream's working directory as for Android users place it in /mnt/sdcard/Android/data/io.recompiled.redream/files/boot.bin

Chapter 17 the beginning to the Final Crisis arc. Lots random plot threads throw in together!

Very busy I see! Let us know when the Free Step Dodge edition comes out. :p
Thanks, I went from being a Total Fan for this Legendary 3D Fighter to doing something about it. As you already know safe to say this Mod Project definitely finished.

Completely understand theirs whole lot more can be done. Content Wise, this was the most important depth that our Dreamcast needed on Day One release. Matching up to Hard*Core levels that was my quest. The PS2 Stages continue forever be nasty draw distance fog. Those stages should have all been included on the September 2000 release date.

Playing the last three newest releases, True Heart of The New 42 Experience. Two years off my life gone into making this all happen today. So please plug this forwards get more gamers aware that this truly exists. Hopefully get couple more playing Not So Premium.

Sorry For The First Burners! The Soundtrack sounded good enough but when Within Toluca played on his Channel wasn't good at all.

So I reissued CDI & GDI links again above with the previous Soundtrack. IA gave me so many Network Errors today well I'm not playing that game at all. So be long time for the next Chapter sadly.

Written up a fun script including a light celebration on the Dreamcast Anniversary for this weekend.

So yeah enjoy Chapter 31 again properly!
