    jEnesisDS v0.4 released

    New Genesis/Mega Drive emulator for DS








    [​IMG]
    Lordus has released a new Genesis/Mega Drive emulator for the Nintendo DS. Apparently compatibility and speed in this version is very impressive, but just like PicoDrive DS, there is no sound emulation yet.

    A third megadrive emu and with an impressive feature list, fantastic. If z80 emulation does appear even better.

    I've personally found it faster than PicodriveDS, tried Streets of Rage 1, 2, 3, Alien Storm, Contra Corps, Castlevania Bloodlines and Gunstar Heroes all worked perfectly, I had slowdown on PicoDriveDS on those games.

    Just gonna try some more and some 32X games. Will post again saying what I've got to work.

    I am getting excited now just sound needs to be figured out. But the gameplay is very impressive, im dreaming here but maybe oneday wi fi multiplayer support by tricking the rom into thinking the 2nd ds is another gamepad. Like Kfusion does.

    Keep up the good work Lordus!

    The DS isn't anywhere near fast enough to emulate the 32X's two 23MHZ SH-2 CPUs, much less that plus the Genesis CPU and all of the Genesis and 32X graphics and sound hardware at once.

    I'm sure Picodrive isn't that glitchy? Things like Toejam and Earl are fine if I remember rightly.

    Picodrive just ran quite slowly for me perhaps its just my M3 or whatever but it just did, anyway it is an early version so it is very impressive.

    This works better for me than picodrive, but I can't get sonic 3 + s&k to work with this. So far all the games I've tried run at pretty good speed. Hopefully sound is emulated, it's kinda boring without sound, but with the hardware I wouldn't be suprised if it isn't integrated till the next gen of nintendo's handheld. Is there savestates in this emu btw? I couldn't figure out if there were or not.

    The best Genesis/Megadrive emulator for PC is HAZE's HazeMD with source found HERE.. If nobody has heard of him before, then you haven't played MAME either! The MAME project emulates hardware 100% so there are no short cuts and therefore compatibility is 100% once the emulation is complete.

    If Lordus can find any of the source code helpful to him to increase compatibility and add sound etc to his DS emu, then point him in that direction.

    I really want a Genesis/Megadrive emulator really badly!

    I really like kega fusion Ad_Enuff, accuracy is nice but often needs a beast to play it for these multichip things.
