    jEnesisDS 0.7.4
    Sound improvements & 30% speed increase
    [​IMG]

    A new version of the popular Sega Genesis/Megadrive emulator, jEnesisDS, has been released. The update brings with it improved sound support along with a massive speed increase of around 30 per cent.

    Changelog:
    ********
    v0.7.4 *
    ********
    - Changed scheduling of M68000 and Z80.
    - Some changes in M68000 internal memory handlers.
    - YM2612 FM core mostly rewritten in ASM.
    - Some bugs in FM core fixed (Operator 1 was sometimes not considered in certain cases).
    - Fixed reset bug for FM core resulting in unstable sound for every game loaded except the 1st one.
    - Raised sample rate for FM emulation from 16KHz to 28KHz (28, because a few games can't do 32KHz)
    - Sound is completely mixed in hardware now, meaning every FM channel, PSG and DAC have their own DS sound channels.

    Thanks to granville on the forums for sending in the news tip. As always you can download the file from GBAtemp below:

    The speed improvement is actually pretty good, Sonic 3 seems to run perfect speed now.

    Wow, I tried it with some Sonic hacks and Sonic 1.I think it is nearly perfect now...

    I really hope, that he could but the save-load-state to a button or two buttons. I don`t like to use TS, when it is not used in the game (obviously not used in emulators [​IMG])

    For lurkers; theres an essentials sticky for every console in the oldies forum, as well as each current gen forum.
    Personally I'd try Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master!

    There are actually 3 versions of the Genesis, that one pictured above is the oldest one. I have the 2nd version which had no volume control or headphone jack. There was a Genesis 3 which was a little different from the 2nd version, but nothing terribly awesome.

    I love this emulator. This and AppreticeDS are the two emus I play most often and NesDS.

    WI ApprenticeMinusDS be included in the next release of jEnesisDS?

    Oh... those games with the blue spiky thing that turns into a metroid-like morphball and has red shoes.
    They were apparently pretty good.
