...What?

Dreamcast doesnt automatically output VGA. Hence, the box.

Err, it does if you jump the right pins together. The VGA box is not doing transcoding or upscaling, it just puts the DC into the mode where it outputs VGA, with only minor circuitry to clean up the signal. See: http://www.instructables.com/id/Sega-Dreamcast-VGA-Mod/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; for a how to on doing a internal version.

No Point considering I already have the box.

The box allows me to output VGA and Composite.

Hey, I'm looking at building something similar (have a Dreamcast that's collecting dust) and I thought I would recommend the Japanese keyboard to you.

http://cgi.ebay.com/Sega-Dreamcast-Keyb ... 53ded0118e" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

That will solve the keyboard issue. I plan on picking one up later and I'm looking into the possibility of wiring up a finger pad (from an old laptop I have) as the mouse.

Nice design, by the way. :)
