    Every version I have wont let me play certain games. They just crash with a code-dump error. So I get a version that doesn't crash, finally. I'm guessing it's a new ver. 'cause it looks 10x better and spiffier. Then, I discover to my horror: It wont display all of my games. I open my HDD, and I see that it lists roms from #-M, but nothing else. (I have every Genesis rom.) So I'm wondering what the hell to do? So I revert to an old version, and it works, it lets me see all of my roms, BUT, a bunch of them crash. . . ?

    The normal genplus-gx versions have a 500 roms limit. You could try my version (second link in my signature), I have compiled it with 2000 roms limit!

    Yeah but to be honest Where do I get the new ver.? Everywhere I look, I get the super old one which wont even read my hard-drive.

    if it "pisses you off" so much, why don't you put your ROM files in subdirectories ? Seriously, how difficult this is, not even mentionning that it is way faster to load and way more efficient to find the ROM you want to play ?

    The lazyness of some users always surprise me...

    Well, people like to have the "full romset" installed, even if they are never going to play all these games and most of them are just the same version with a few differences. I think there isn't more than 2000 unique genesis and mega drive games anyway, and if you are gonna play them all, it's easier to make sub-directories rather than having to browse the WHOLE list everytime you want to pick one, seems a quite stupid move ...
