not that good. There is no sound, and it is slow on full frameskip. The auto-frameskip is no good. Look out for crtO's Genesis emulator when that comes out.

It is pretty good for being such an early stage. The graphics are nice and full speed and Sonic 1 (an awesome game) plays alright.

Speaking purely hypothetically

Post by ColGraff » Sat May 25, 2002 2:32 pm

Let us say - strictly for the sake of argument - that there were a Genesis emulator of questionable legality. Let's further suppose that, if such an emulator existed, it would be mentioned in the rules for this forum - by name - as an emulator that is not to be discussed. If one were interested in obtaining such an emulator - and of course, the very idea is laughably absurd - then a google search might, concievably, find a copy. And if one were to find the imaginary emulator, one might discover it plays the vast majority of genesis games at full speed, and is far superiour to dcgen.

And I must apologize - it is not my habit to waste the time of my fellow dcemulation forum visitors with theoretical ramblings.

yes, crt0 is great, but DCGen will probably move along a lot faster. Many games are playable (I believe) right now. Either 1) support DCGen, and hope more thing progress, or 2) Expect crt0 to release a genesis emu FROM SCRATCH before dcgen can run most games.


Not doubting ya crt0, just saying it might take a lot longer then people expect.
