I got my second MODE in this week for my Dreamcast, and ran into trouble with a couple of games. These are Gigawing (USA & JPN) and Gauntlet Legends (USA). I'm using a bin/cue Redump set, and I haven't been able to get either of these games to work. They both act like they are booting, and then boot back into the MODE every time after the Dreamcast boot sequence. If I fiddle with the settings such as turning off in game reset, game load speed as normal, and GD-ROM seek times: then they will both loop the bootup sequence but not actually load the game. I then tried GDI Redump images of all three games and had the same exact problems.
I then decided to try the Europe region GDI Redump images of both of these games, and to my surprise they work just fine. Gigawing even has a 60hz mode for us NTSC folks. But I thought this behavior was strange so I figured I'd post here about it in case anyone else has encountered this problem. I searched the forum but didn't see this mentioned, so I wanted to make sure this wasn't a problem just with my MODE. So far everything else I have thrown at it was worked just fine.
Thanks in advance!
