    How far along are they with the project? Is there anything testable out there now? Sorry if these are obvious questions. I'd just like to give the thread a little context and background.

    DreamShell has been updated since 2004! It allows you to run games from a HDD or a SD Card in the serial port. The O.S is great and it's open source. You can find more information in the DC-Swat website.

    It just doesn't feel right to see that loading screen without hearing the massive GD-Rom seeking.

    Do you think the Space channel 5 song added to the emotion of Shenmue? ;)

    Also from CF memory card (with IDE adapter), SD, SDHC, SDXC with SD adapters. Note that every method besides serial port adapter may force you to modify the motherboard and its case (optionally). Maybe Dreamshell isn't the best method to mess with Dreamcast, but the most customizable and basically totally free. It has purpose of improving the usability of your console and comes with extra functions.

    The first time I ever used a Dreamcast, I freaked the fuck out when it started making those crazy grinding seek noises, and turned the console off immediately.

    It's not about money, it's about time. I've been working a lot lately. And I can not get away from work and do DS. If I had free time, I would have done this as before - for free.
    There is only one way for now - to quit my job and work hard on DS, but who will feed my family? On DC it will not turn out to earn money regularly and in sufficient quantity... This is a hobby for me and nothing more.

    so DreamShell need more builders

    I read this, I think they should open a patreon! It would be easier for everyone.
