Ever since the dawn of civilization (Atari 2600), fighting game characters and fightoutg game characters alike have craved the elusive Featu-Ring, a magical portal that allows its user to guest star in a different franchise. Capcom didn't put it in Street Fighter, but finding the Featu-Ring was M. Bison's ultimate goal, same with Mortal Kombat's Shao Kahn. It is the most important artifact in fighting game history (although it will probably never get mentioned again after this game).  Six brave OC and two even braver guest characters will fight for the power to use the ring in this high-octane, low-IQ tournament! Who will claim the ultimate prize? I don't know either, I haven't finished the story yet, so let's find out in... Dream Fight! Dash! 23!

Thanks a lot for playing!

Install instructions


Extract the folder and open DreamFight23.exe.


Burn the .cdi file to a CD-R using Padus Discjuggler 6.0 (https://www.afterdawn.com/software/cd_dvd/burning/padus_disc_juggler.cfm).  CD-RWs will not work. Burn at slow speeds, if possible. Put the CD-R in your Dreamcast. If it shows -Dolmexica Infinite 1.5 executable- during the Sega logo screen, you did everything correctly.


Transfer the .vpk to a Vita  and install it from VitaShell. For info on how to jailbreak your Vita, refer to the information in this guide. In addition to that, libshacccg.suprx (a Vita shader compiler needed by vitaGL) needs to be extracted on your Vita. For information on how to extract libshacccg.suprx, please follow the information provided in this guide. The Vita emulator Vita3K is not supported currently.
