Here is the idea for menu.
"Lock on" goes to "Lock on (MD)" or "Lock on (Genesis)" or something else. Because it work with that system only.

Good point.

One more issue with test build.
When I start Tom Clown with "Lock On" = GG I have "Illegal copy...", but if "Lock on" = off - it's starts normally.
And I'm glad to see a new icon =) Thanks!

Fixed, thanks for spotting, I have auto-disabled game-genie if the rom has copy protection.

No, Pier Solar still plays fine with GG.

Re: Genesis Plus GX UPDATE 2015/06/07
« Reply #66 on: June 07, 2015, 10:55:51 pm »
UPDATED 2015/06/07
The OPK

Changes:
Update to most recent source code (2015/06/06):
Quote
-[Core/CD] improved PCM chip & Gate-Array area mirroring
-[Core/CD] improved CDC emulation (fixes random freezes during Jeopardy & ESPN Sunday Night NFL intro)
-[Core/CD] added CD-AUDIO & CD+G support
-[Core/CD] fixed OGG file seeking when using with CUE file
-[Core/MD] added support for Tom Clown (Realtec/Unlicensed)
-[Core/MD] fixed Game Genie / Pro Action Replay lock-on support when Mega CD hardware is enabled
-[Core/VDP] optimized tile caching
Changed icon by popular demand.
Added speedup option with balanced and performance settings.
Added analog "deadzone" configuration.
Lots of code optimisation
Disabled Lock-on for a few games with copy protection which fail to load if Lock-on enabled
Fixed random occasional black screen of death on startup
Mega CD saves now working
Automatic screen adjustment to remove coloured bar in SMS games
Fixed screenshot corruption in save/load menu
(and probably a few other fixes I've forgotten about :P)

The main addition is the various speed hacks available from the graphics menu. These are only used on Mega CD games and Virtua Racing which really need some speed improvements. The "performance" setting is particularly aggressive but is quite useful for some demanding titles (Pier Solar, Virtua Racing, etc).

Please let me know if there are any further improvement requests (or bugs) here or by PM.
Thanks to care16la20 for very kindly offering to test the many, many test releases :)

Not counting 32X, which I know isn't really feasible, I think you might be running out of ways to improve this emu anymore David! ;D Thanks for all the work you've put into this.

Nope, still plenty of ideas, just not enough time. I did try porting it to SDL2 but the results were slower than the current version.

I'd like to request adding the power slider as a menu button. Every other emulator I have uses the power slider to bring up the menu, so I tend to reach over there.

Great job on the emulator so far, David! The only thing I haven't gotten to work is Sega CD, because it crashes back to gmenu2x.

I'm wary of using the power slider as it seems more fragile than the other buttons. However it's not a problem to do this.

Mega CD games work fine. Have you correctly named and installed the bios as instructed in the manual?

Mine doesn't seem fragile at all. I'd hope the power slider isn't fragile... that's used for many things on the console. Haha.

Yeah. I only have the US BIOS. I don't need the Europe and Japan BIOS as well, do I?

You will for EU/J versions of games. They also need to be correctly named. e.g. the USA bios needs to placed in "$HOME/.genplus/bios/bios_CD_U.bin". See the manual for further info.

Very nice !!! Thankss!

The only I dont like too much is power switch to go the menu; This switch seems to be a little bit fragile so I avoid using it as much as possible..... Would prefer the select + start for that

Regards

Both work, I added the power switch option at the request of xXFrostXx.

I prefer START + SELECT too but choice is good :)
