    thanks, but this looks like a bad dump. in the middle of game executable parts is missing (0-filled area(s) instead of code), in result game goes crazy and hangs. high probable the cause is disc read errors (sadly disc was dumped as 2048 sectors, so we have no checksums for data verification)

    try to clean disc and dump it several times, until you'll get stable reads (i.e. 2x identical dumps). preferable as raw-2352 sectors, so it will be possible to check and identify if there was bad sectors, using ECC/EDC data.

    quite strange this game wont boot on dev kit, make sure you set it to Europe region..

    I'd recommend not dumping with DreamShell anymore. Try Dreamcast SD Rip instead:
    http://hiddenpalace.org/Dreamcast_SD_Rip

    This will dump the GD-R with the ECC/EDC data intact. Unfortunately it will error out if it encounters a read error on the GD-R, in which case try to clean it as best you can and redump it. If it still fails, then make a note of it and just stick with the DreamShell dump.

    Other than that though, the build date predates the European build by about a month. :)

    Can also dump with some pc drives using redumps tools.

    I have one of the drives if you would like me to dump it.

    Can you dump GD-Rs with DiscImageCreator + a Plextor Drive? I've read that you can't yet, only retail GD-ROMs. :(
