How to install and play the nullDC emulator
I will show you how to Install NullDC, use a controller and play Rayman 2
Part 1/3: Setting up the Emulator

Step one: Downloading The Emulator Itself.

Go to the nullDC homepage at https://code.google.com/p/nulldc/ and press the
download button. Drag the .zip file to your desktop and extract the files into a folder.


Step two: Installing The BIOS

Download your Dreamcast BIOS and drag your dc_boot.bin and dc_flash.bin into
the data folder in your nullDC folder. If you choose to skip this step, you will get an Error saying; Unable to find bios in C:\Users\Name\Desktop\nullDC_104_r136\data Exiting...
Making you unable to proceed. At this point you are finished downloading the NullDC Emulator.


Part 2/3: Playing Rayman 2:The great escape

I have noticed that alot of people have had a lot of trouble finding a working ROM version of Rayman 2, but thanks to user atrey187 he have made it easy for us. So it is so easy as going to this link http://theisozone.com/downloads/dreamcast/dreamcast-isos/rayman-2-dcres-repack/ and downloading his file. Then when you have finished downloading, just hit the unpack program in the downloaded file. Then you just follow the simple instructions. Then you open up Nulldc and click the normal boot button. From there you locate to the Rayman 2 (Repack) - DCRES.cdi that was created after hitting the unpack program. Now you have a working Dreamcast Emulator on your computer playing Rayman 2: The great escape.


Part 3/3: How to use a controller on NullDC
You have to options;
1. Using a Dualshock 3 which you have to install a whole other program to use or 2. Using a wired xbox 360 controller which is just plug and play.
But for each option, you still have to set up the controller in nullDC

DS3

Install MotionInJoy from http://motioninjoy.en.uptodown.com/ plug in the controller trought usb, install the drivers at the Driver Manager in to DS3 Tools program.

Setting up the controller in NullDC

Okay, now you have to controller set up and ready to use. Open up the NullDC Emulator and click options, First you want to click Select Plugins. And from there at the Maple section, switch from NullDC Controller to PuruPuru Dreamcast Controller.
Then exit out of the Select Plugins Window on go back into Options. You then go into Maple, Port A and Config keys for Player 1. And then you set up the controller according to the image.


So now you have a working emulation of Rayman 2 on your computer. But there could easily be some minor missing textures, as dreamcas emulation is far from perfect.
