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.

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.

Thanks David, and sorry for my mistake :-[

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

Using copyrighted trademarks disqualifies it from the inclusion into repo.gcw-zero.com
Nevermind, I thought you mean logos, while you probably meant console images.

I little update, I'm slowly optimising.

My current target is Virtua Racing. I've got it playable at 50fps now fullscreen (no horizontal bands). There's still slight sound skipping when music is playing and due to the throttle being turned off there are menu speedup issues right now.

I also tested Pier Solar and music now doesn't skip.

Aiming for 60fps and smooth sound...

Love it!
yes :) it reminds me of kega fusion!  in that sense it'd be better to use instead of some mega drive [insert console] icon

wouldn't a "SEGA" icon pretty much be a logo?  unless spaceman meant something else

Just tested some FMV scenes in Mega CD with optimisations enabled. Much better now  ;D

How would one transition from Picodrive: savestates, etc.?

I don't think the save states are compatible but the saves should be.

I downloaded and transferred the OPK in the first thread to my "apps" folder, but whenever I run Genesis Plus Gx I get a black screen. Sound seems to be working normally but I get no video signal whatsoever. What seems to be the problem?

By the way...
I copy BIOS files for SEGA CD and "Pier Solar" doesn't start anymore!
After I select ROM and press "A" button emulator return to qmenu. If I delete BIOS files all work perfectly...
