    I've tried genplus from retroarch but the frame rate is still pretty terrible on o3ds, are there any alternatives?

    Picodrive has played just about every Genesis game I have tried perfectly on my 10.1 Orig 3ds.

    You're going to have a pretty bad time trying to use Gen Plus on O3DS; it's a lot more accurate (and hence slower). Stick with Picodrive as they suggested.

    What games are you planning on playing? I recommend Herzog Zwei (Is that how you spell it?) and Sonic 2. My 2 favorites for the genesis.

    Comix Zone
    Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine
    Earthworm Jim
    Flicky
    Megaman: The Wily Wars
    Pulseman
    Ristar
    Sonic 3 & Knuckles
    Sonic the Hedgehog 2
    Sonic the Hedgehog

    Toe Jam & Earl
    Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3

    EDIT: Not that I'm condoning piracy or anything...[​IMG]

    Its a shame Picodrive only works on the CIA build, Picodrive always crashes on the newer firmwares on 3dsx! :(

    I wonder if providing a secondary version without the dynarecs is an option. That'd be up to @aliaspider though.

    None of the emulators people have made for the 3DS are accurate whatsoever. They're all horrendously slow and only achieve a 60FPS frame counter by using frame skip/duplicating frames.

    If you say so. Gen Plus is extremely accurate (not quite cycle-accurate, I don't think, but still, unless the RetoArch team added in hacks, it's one of the most accurate Genesis emulators with good performance too). It also has a constant 60 FPS on N3DS with no frameskipping or duplicating.

    Accuracy and speed are two different things when it comes to emulation. Accuracy refers to how comparatively close the emulator runs to the original system. Speed is pretty self explanatory. Gen plus is sacrificing speed to have the emulator be as close to a 1:1 copy of the original system as possible.
     
    Pandaxclone2 and daxtsu like this.
