of course i paid him, he was honest enough and sent me “Lakka-RPi2.arm-2.1.1.img.gz” as promised! i couldn’t find the redream core in there but it was my fault because i forgot to tell him i needed the 2.1.1 version with redream core, so he didn’t know beforehand and didn’t check for me.
yes i mistakenly assumed that all version of v2.1.1 have the redream core, but i have no way of asking about that first now do i? because you guys disabled my account from posting when i first registered on may 17, 2019, so i have no means to ask about it.
he was getting impatient because i contacted him yesterday and he said i was pulling his legs because i asked him over and over again and still haven’t paid him, as i mentioned in my earlier post he was losing his patience since he thought i was wasting his time, i didn’t want him to walk away all of the sudden and lose my one and only chance at getting the v2.1.1 build. so i had to choose between not getting any help here with a half disabled account where all my posts need to be manually approved, vesus a person like him who is ready with the file on hand and give it to me for 30 bucks… so i chose the obvious; because i wanted to play pia carrot 3 again so badly, and i want to try it on redream because reicast runs it with all garbled audio and lags like hell.
so he sent the file to me as agreed, and it was indeed v2.1.1 just like i asked for, but since the redream core is not in there, i’m guessing its probably an early build before you guys put the redream core in there, but in any case i have uploaded the v2.1.1 lakka build he sent me to a file hosting service, and posted it here for you guys to look in my earlier post, i was hoping you guys can help me figure out how to enable the redream core if its hidden in there, or atleast tell me if this is the early build where the redream core haven’t been slotted in there yet.
again he sent me the file, it is indeed a v2.1.1 as promised. so why would i want him banned when you guys were the ones who banned ME from posting back in may 17, 2019, i had to wait for 3 months before i could bump that old thread about redream on lakka v2.1.1 here. (ask the admin about it, the post has since been deleted after i started this thread)
besides i live in hong kong, the privacy laws here are very strict so i’m not sure if its even LEGAL for me to disclose his personal details like paypal account or reddit account online unless i want the cops to come knocking on my door. in any case, he still helped me in the end so i see no reason to betray him like this, especially when he gave me the correct file as agreed (he didn’t know i needed the redream core because i incorrectly assumed that all v2.1.1 build has it) not to mention that since i pay him with paypal, he likely has all my personal details as well, like full name/address just like any sellers would when they receive payment with their paypal account.
i thank you sincerely for the core that you have posted, hopefully i can get it to work with the v2.1.1 build, but if not, then its time to give up and i won’t bother you folks no more.
if i cant get redream to work on my v2.1.1 lakka, i probably will just get a UK dreamcast supporting 220v voltage, and which also supports mil-cd so i can use a utopia disc to boot my legit hard copy of pia carrot 3 from 2003 along with all my other dreamcast games. though with uk dreamcasts its very tricky to tell, and they have crappy GD rom drive and the seller could be lying about the drive working when it is not…so much hassle… that’s why i didn’t want to bother with real dreamcasts and i bought a raspberry pi 3 instead and i was hoping for Lakka and redream core to be able to do the job instead. i’m ready to give up if it doesn’t work, perhaps i really needed the real console afterall.
in any case i’ve already reuploaded the v2.1.1 build here, hopefully it will be of some use for others if they need it.
sorry for bothering you all and thanks for the core, i truly appreciate it.
