I thought Pier Solar already ran fine on Picodrive?
It runs with glitches and save bugs. GenPlusGX run it perfectly.
All emulators have old school icons, except Genesis Plus GX.
PicoDrive -
GenPlus GX -
Will it possible to change in a future build to this - if it good?
Genesis 2 style
you could always use open package creator to replace the icon then repack the opk file: http://boards.dingoonity.org/gcw-releases/open-package-creator-1-1/

 :) for genplusgx i always use this:

I can't get saving to work for Sega CD games in this release though. I tried it in Popful with either internal ram or ramcart. It didn't make any save files in the save/cd folder; I wonder if something is off with my permissions. Anyone else try it?

Hey David, did you merge this commit with your code?

Yes, I had to before I could push my last few commits through.

EDIT PM sent, bug fixed, MCD saves will work properly in the next update.

Is there a benefit for using this versus Picodrive?

That depends. For SG1000, Game Gear and Master System you have the benefit of full screen emulation and correct colour rendering and optional FM sound on some Master System games. For MegaDrive/Genesis you have better sound emulation.
Overall Genesis is generally a more accurate emulator so will probably have less glitches than Picodrive.
However Picodrive is optimised for speed so is currently better for Virtual racing and fmv sequences in Mega CD games.

I am in touch with the Genesis Plus GX developer ekeeke who has suggested a way of improving MegaCD performance so hopefully this can be improved further.

And no music on the intro or title screen.

If you copy and paste this into your Popful Mail .cue file, it will hopefully fix that:

Code: [Select]
FILE "Popful Mail.bin" BINARY
    TRACK 01 MODE1/2352
      INDEX 01 00:00:00
    TRACK 02 AUDIO
      INDEX 00 39:47:27
      INDEX 01 39:49:27
    TRACK 03 AUDIO
      INDEX 00 42:09:57
      INDEX 01 42:11:57
    TRACK 04 AUDIO
      INDEX 00 44:35:29
      INDEX 01 44:37:29

Just make sure to change the filename to match your .bin file. Also I forgot to note that saving does work for MD, GG and SMS.

Thanks for your help. But the game works fine in PicoDrive. So I don't think there's an issue with the cue file.

Not sure what else it would be, since intro and title music work for me in GX. The intro and title music are CD audio, which needs to be correctly indexed in the .cue file to play properly. Maybe Picodrive has some kind of automatic detection that fixes the .cue on load. Or maybe you're not using a bin/cue and your audio files are in a format Picodrive supports but not GX.

Well I dunno what it could be either. I have the original disk and I made a bin/cue with IMGBurn. That same image works fine in Kega and Caanoo(PicoDrive) as well. But anyway I probably won't be playing games with FMV on this emulator anyway. I'm content with how the other systems work on this emulator.

Great to see that this has been officially released! I think that I will probably switch over from using picodrive now. also, just my two cents, but I agree that the two icons suggested in this tread are more appealing than the current one.

Here is another suggestion for the icon:



"G" stands for "Genplus"

Not keen on the G icon.
Does it have to be a megadrive icon, why not SEGA or a Mega CD icon
