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...

oo0 like the G icon ;)
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

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...

In general if the app is working for everyone except you, you probably just need to update your firmware ;)

You can check your firmware version by going to the Settings menu and running "About". The first line should state:

Quote
Build date: Aug 20 2014

If it doesn't then you need to update your firmware. See here for instructions on how to do this.

If it's still not working, enable Output logs from the GMenu (press START, third option) then run the program. Quit by pushing the power-slider up and pressing SELECT at the same time, then read the output log by running Log Viewer from the Settings menu. Post the Logfile.

I need a little more info. What are your bios files called and which directory are you putting them in?

btw a new version will be landing soon.

It was a firmware update issue, I thought my GCW was up to date, I found out that I downloaded the update but never installed it! Anyway forgive my ignorance and keep up the great work.

My Bios files are: bios_CD_E.bin, bios_CD_J.bin, bios_CD_U.bin
~/.genplus/bios
Sega CD starts perfectly, game genie is on, other smd Roms starts perfectly too. Pier Solar not. It's very big, not enought memory?

Personally, .cue files weren't showing up at all until I added "application/x-cue;" to the default.gcw0.desktop file.  After that, sweet sweet ogg music.  Although it does skip a bit sometimes.
