    Genesis emulator
    [​IMG]

    The popular Genesis emulator by Lordus has received an update. Updates in this version include optimizations that should lead to speed boosts, the addition of sound, and hopefully higher compatibility. Download and full changelog below.

    [title:Changelog]- Custom Z80 ASM core implemented.
    - Custom YM2612 and PSG emulation, running on the ARM7. So there is sound now [​IMG]
    - Many parts rewritten. Speed without Z80 core should be quite a bit faster for most games.
    - Idle-loop detection completely rewritten. Shouldn't break any games anymore. Therefore the option to disable it was taken out.
    - Some changes to the HW renderer. Some glitches should be gone, others were probably introduced. Will be rewritten for the next version.
    - Tweaked H-Int auto detection, so less games should need the "ON" option to boot now.
    - Mode-Button added (L+R+Start)
    - Skipped option screen at startup, so you get directly into the game selection.

    Just as I managed to kick my Phantasy Star 4 habit (or move it to the xbox).

    It will have to wait though as I am falling asleep in my chair.

    All I'm saying is that I can play El Viento anywhere I want. Do I need another reason to live? [​IMG]

    Thanks, but I was making a joke about how you used to have to call a 900 number when the game came out so you could get the code... nevermind, I'm old! [​IMG]
