Eke-Eke has released a new version of Genesis Plus the Sega Genesis/Megadrive emulator for the Nintendo Wii/GameCube.


– corrected TeamPlayer support: fix multiplayer in Gauntlet 4 (Sept. version), Pengo and a lot of others
– added J-Cart support: enable multiplayer in Codemasters games (Pete Sampras, Micromachines games, Super Skidmarks)
– added serial EEPROM autodetection: fix games with bad SRAM informations in header (NBA Jam TE)
– added SVP faking: display 2D graphics in Virtua Racing (the game is however still unplayable)
– added support for more internal IO registers: fixe some unlicensed games (Wisdom Tree games…)
– added preliminary support for unmapped protection device: fix some unlicensed games with special built-in hardware (Squirell King, Lion King 2…)
– added “Soft Reset” combo (in game, use L+Z triggers): this should be like pressing the RESET button on a real Genesis and this is required
in some games to enable special features or even complete the game (ex: X-Men).

– added separate configuration for PortA/PortB inputs (GAMEPAD, MULTITAP or NONE, see Joypad Config): this let you setting PORTB as unplugged, which is needed in some games to access special modes or enable cheat codes (Alien Storm, X-Men…)

– added new font: now use original IPL font, extracted from Bootrom

. use B button to go up one directory
. use Z button to quit the file selection menu
. use L/R triggers to go down/up one full page
. use Left/Right buttons or Analog stick to scroll the selected entry’s filename when it can’t be full displayed
