    Yeah, the most used format for Genesis/Megadrive is .smd, I haven't seen any .bin's yet though.

    I've seen .gen, .bin and .smd (I have a full rom set, and all of the files are named .gen). I have no idea if there are any differences in the actual files, or if it's just the filenames that are different.

    What are actually good genesis games? I suppose I could play them on my ds but I've never considered using it. Am I missing out?

    I can't find where the discussion was, but somewhere I read that it's better to convert from SMD to BIN or GEN to make them load faster in jEnesisDS.

    Ahh, I didn't even realize there was an essentials list for genesis around here. Thanks for the headsup. [​IMG]
