  "All I can tell you is if you get to this screen while trying to configure the BBA, you are screwed."
 
Dream Passport 3 is the Japanese web browser for DC that finally came along with broadband support. I know this because I had to use a hacked version of it to get my DC BBA configured so I could go online with PSO.
 
Now that I have the actual DP3 disc, I can't do anything with it. This is primarily because it is all in Japanese (the condition mainly rectified by the hacked version, you see) and if you think setting up your BB connection is hard normally, try doing it when you have to wade through crazy pastel-colored animating menus with full Japanese voiceovers and apparently default values that try to get you to use a dialup modem on Sega's old Japanese dialup service. Whee!
 
So I'm not going to bother. But it's funny to see all the multimedia that pops up in the menus for this thing, when the hacked version makes it look completely drab, grey, and static.

I think I did manage to format the DC's dialup memory thingy using this thing, but it's just as well since it changed anyway since I last used the BBA several years ago.
