Well, there is a Saturn emu: BlueCrab's Yabause-DC.

Out of the current systems, the DC is the platform for a SAT emulator. The DC's main CPU, the SH4, is somewhat backward compatible to the Saturn SH2 CPUs. They share the same instruction set. Still it's a bit more complicated than it sounds because they use a different byte order (little endian / big endian) but BlueCrab wrote somewhere on these forums that he works on a real-time byte swapper to make full use of the possibilities.

Based on Yabause v0.0.7 which as of then only emulated the Saturn BIOS, Yabause-DC v0.0.7 emulated the BIOS too. Slow, but it did. It was a plain test port without PVR acceleration or the dynarec-like byte swapping implemented. Blue Crab is still working on Yabause-DC. As with most of us, he just doesn't have as much free time as he'd wish so it will take some time until we see a new release.

Yabause Website:
http://yabause.sourceforge.net/compatibility.php

v0.0.7 Release:
http://www.dcemulation.org/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=60693


There's no SEGA CD emu yet. It needs more work than e.g. a NeoGeo emulator as the SCD is more powerful than a NeoGeo. Emulating the complete MD/G hardware and the even stronger SCD on DC might be possible to a degree but needs an incredible amount of work and would implement a lot of compromises like underclocking, frameskip, probably even disabled FM music or soundFX, etc. - most-likely resulting in limited compatibility.
Could be that we'll see a working SCD emu some day, but I assume it won't ever be perfect.

Hey Quzar, I thought your TG played the hue cards rather well from what you told me before. By the way, where can I DL that anyway?

Since it sucks in general, even though it is the best we have, it is not listed here. For anything ever done by me, just go to http://www.screamcast.net

PVR Preview 3 has sound. V1 does not.

Hm, I am sure you know, but it does not suck in general. All I was asking for would be a better GUI, full screen support and the option to get back to the ROM browser once playing a game. If these features would be implemented I'd love to add it to the list :wink:
