Flycast is a SEGA Dreamcast, NAOMI and AtomisWave emulator, forked from reicast, and made by flyinghead. It can emulate the standard Dreamcast controllers, Keyboard, Mouse, Light-Gun (with your mouse), Twin Sticks, and even the ASCII Mission Stick Emulating two expansion sockets per controller. Also has widescreen (Rendering outside of screen), texture upscaling, frame skipping dump textures and load custom textures.
