Redream

competition

Redream is a closed-sourced Dreamcast emulator, enabling you to play your Dreamcast games in high-definition on Windows, Mac and Linux. There are 2 versions; lite and premium (small fee). The only significant difference is that the premium version lets you scale to Ultra-HD resolutions. With an excellent streamlined experience, it will eventually be the best, as accuracy continues to improve (passed 80%). That said, it's not the most accurate nor does it support Dreamcast peripherals. 

Note: BIOS file not required, but may improve compatibility in certain cases.
