4. FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

1) Q: What is the Nexus 4MB Card?

   A: The Nexus 4MB Card is a "revolutionary memory card that has a built-in
      connection port allowing direct connection to the PC. Upload and download
      saves between Nexus Memory Card and PC. Hundreds and thousands of
      game saves can easily be stored on the PC. E-mail the saves of the
      latest game conquered to anyone on the internet. Everyone can have your
      saves and you can have everyone else's saves!"
            -From the package



2) Q: Where can I get the Nexus 4MB Card?

   A: At any of your local Videogame retailers, or online at:

      http://www.hkems.com



3) Q: So it's basically like a Dex-Drive for my Dreamcast?

   A: In many ways, yes.



4) Q: What do I need to start storing and e-mailing my saves?

   A: Here's what you need: Your Dreamcast, your computer, your Nexus 4MB card,
                            the link cable (it comes with it), a power outlet
                            so you can power-up your Dreamcast, the Nexus
                            program, and a DC controller (with the Nexus 4MB
                            card plugged into it).


5) Q: Do I need my DC hooked up to my TV? Or do I just need the DC plugged in?

   A: No, you do not need your DC hooked up to a TV. All you need is it plugged
      in.



6) Q: What if I have a Japanese or Asian DC, can I still use the Nexus 4MB
      card?

   A: Yes, simply because the Nexus 4MB card is universal, and the only thing
      that seperates the territories is the type of program you use for it.


7) Q: What program is reccommended for the US?

   A: I use the DC LINKER V.2.02b, which can be found here:

     http://www.hkems.com/dolo.htm


8) Q: What sites accept DC saves for the Nexus 4MB Card?

   A: There are many on the net, but you have to search for them.
      GameFAQs.com is one of them.


9) Q: What do those little lights on the Memory Card mean?

   A: Those lights represent which bank of memory you are on. There are 4
      different banks:

      - Red Light
      - Green Light
      - Red and Green Light
      - No lights

      Just press the button on the left side of the Nexus 4MB card to switch
      banks.


10) Q: How much more memory can the Nexus 4MB Card hold than the Normal Sega
       VMU?

    A: It can hold 4 times as much memory, WITHOUT compression (i.e., it won't
       corrupt like other "large memory cards")

5. How to use the Nexus 4MB Card

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                           • Getting Started •
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

What you will need:
====================
• Your Dreamcast near your computer
• A Nexus 4MB Memory Card
• The link cable that comes with it (it plugs into your serial port)
• Your computer
• A DC controller
• The Nexus program (I use DC LINKER V.2.02b)


Now how to get started:
========================

1) First off, make sure your computer is off. Now plug your DC into a
   power outlet (oh, and make sure you format the Nexus 4MB Card first).

2) Now plug the link cable into the Nexus 4MB Card.

3) Plug the other end of the link cable into your serial port of your
   computer (make sure the computer is OFF).

4) Now plug your Nexus 4MB Memory Card into the first VMU Slot of your DC
   controller, and make sure the DC Controller is plugged into the DC.

5) Turn on the DC power switch.

6) Turn your computer on, and let it boot up.

7) Once your computer is done booting up, log onto the internet, and go to
   "http://www.hkems.com", click on the "Downloads" link, then Download
   one of the programs for your Nexus 4MB Card (I use DC LINKER V.2.02b).

8) When it is done downloading, un-zip it, then open up the program called
   "Wcpy1". This will bring you to a new program that should say "EMS
   DC LINKER V.2.02b for Nexus 4M", and a dragon logo below it. To the
   right should have two boxes: Slot 1 and Slot 2. Select a Slot.


9) Now hit the "Refresh" Button that is on the program, and the Program will
   read the Nexus 4MB Card for any save info. If you have anything saved on
   it, those save logos will show up.

10) From here you can now do several things when you right-click on the save
    logos, like:

    - Store your Saves to the Hard Drive
    - Import DCI Files
    - Load DCM Files
    - Delete your save


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                    • Storing Saves to your Hard Drive •
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

How to store saves to your Hard Drive:
=======================================

1) Find the save logo you wish to store to your hard drive.

2) Right click on the logo.

3) Now select "Save as .DCM file"

4) Browse your Hard Drive, and find the file folder you wish to save it in.

5) Now save it as a .DCM file. For example:

   I have a Marvel vs. Capcom 2 save. I would save it as "mvsc2.DCM".

6) Now wait for the program to finish saving the save info to your selected
   area on your Hard Drive.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                    • Downloading Saves to your Computer •
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

How to Download Saves to your Computer:
========================================

1) Find the save you wish to download.

2) Make sure it is a .DCM or a .DCI file extension.

3) Click on it to start the download.

4) When it asks you what you would like to do with the file, select "Save this
   file to a disk".

5) Browse your Hard Drive, and find the file folder you wish to save it in.

6) Wait for the program to finish downloading to your Hard Drive.

7) When it is finished, you will now have that save on your Hard Drive.


How to retrieve your save:
===========================

1) First, open your program for the Nexus 4MB Card

2) Now right click on the "Slot 1" area to the right.

3) Select "Import DCI File".

4) Browse your Hard Drive, and find the save you just downloaded, then double
   click on it.

5) The program will now take the save you downloaded, and place it onto your
   Nexus 4MB card, in which then you can use on your DC whenever you like.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                         • Sending Saves to others •
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

How to send a save(s) to others via e-mail:
============================================

1) Open up your Nexus program

2) Now store the save(s) you wish to send via e-mail to your Hard Drive as
   described above.

3) When this is done, enter your e-mail account.

4) Select "Attach File" from your e-mail account.

5) Browse your Hard Drive and locate the save you wish to send, the one(s)
   that you just saved.

6) When this is done, just attach all of the saves that you wish to send,
   then send them to someone!

6. Trouble-Shooting

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
1Q: I keep on getting this error message: "Link Error!"
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

1A: Probably because you did not plug in the link cable properly, you did
    not plug the DC in, you did not hook up your Nexus to the serial port
    of your computer properly, or you just plain didn't plug your DC
    controller into your DC.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
2Q: I keep on getting this error message: "Connection Failed!"
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

2A: Once again, Probably because you did not plug in the link cable properly,
    you did not plug the DC in, you did not hook up your Nexus to the serial
    port of your computer properly, or you just plain didn't plug your DC
    controller into your DC...or, you interrupted the Connection Process
    when the Nexus 4MB program was reading your Nexus 4MB Card. You either:

    A) Removed the Nexus 4MB Card from the DC Controller while it was reading
       it, or...

    B) Removed the DC controller from the DC while the Nexus 4MB was being
       read, or...

    C) You removed the Link Cable from the serial port of your computer during
       the reading-process.
