Just got my Dc and want a few questions answering.

Where can I get the arcade stick and other smart bits of kit from without having to pay loads of postage?

How can I access the online gaming mode?

Do I just needa boot disk to play back-ups not a chip or anything?

Please e-mail me or post here.

For playing backup you only need a Boot disc for older games. Newer games are selfboot. When you download a game and its in Bin/Cue then you need a Boot disc which can be downloaded from here . If its in .cdi format then its selfboot. You can also make the non selfboot games into selfboot with either bin2boot or Echelons selfboot tutorial which is all found at . Discjuggler CDrwin

Only certain games have online options.

If you have the case, look on the back or in the manual and it will tell.

If you're playing a backup, you can usually find online options (if any) on the main menus.

If the game does support online play, it is usually fairly straighforward
