    with sound support that emu would really be outstanding... even though the sound chip on the genesis wasn't that great...

    Has anyone got this working on a supercard (miniSD)?

    If I run the GBA version it won't load, and the NDS one just gives me white screens.

    Do I have to patch it or anything

    At this point sound support is a secondary concern. It needs to run faster first, it's not nearly fast enough to run Genesis games at 100% speed, but it has been a good effort so far.

    Great work by Ryan FB! This is a great emulator for the DS, I hope he continues to work on it.

    Sonic The Hedgehog 2 is completely playable [​IMG] What more could you want?

    The genesis had a fine sound chip. One of the best of it's time IMHO. In fact it had two sound chips which makes it so hard to program into emulators without an extreme slowdown.
