Which do you think is better?

I have both on my GP32 at the mo but need to remove one for some space, which should i keep.

I am leaning towards gigadrive as you can play Wiz n Liz on that and its not working on fgen yet.

i like fgen simply because of savestates
if fgen didn't have this i would stick with gigadrive as it seems to have higher compatibility

Fgen for me only because i can run 132mhz w/sound on frameskip 2 and everything plays great, frameskip 0 or 1 without sound on 132mhz and save battery power, I have to use the 156mhz gigadrive fxe to play the games with good speed.

You have a space problem, so zip all your Genesis ROMs except Wiz n Liz and keep both on Gigadrive and fGEN32 there - you'll cut the file size of each ROM roughly in half. I assume you haven't zipped them, since Gigadrive can't open zipped ROMs.

Animating savestates. Good sound, bar the Z80 stuff. Gotta be fGen. At least, for the moment. Though in the end, it'll possibly be whichever one runs Panorama Cotton (I love that game lol) with least glitches and a real background; atm the mode7 bit isn't emulated, though sprites are positioned correctly. Well, in the last beta as opposed to first public (which it doesn't load in) of fGen. Since its a Cyclone bug, I think, though, re the mode7 backgrounds looking non-existent, I doubt it works properly in Gigadrive...

Fgen has save states!!!

I'll say Fgen though the last update of Fgen was much more recently then gigadrive, who knows whats better if you take the gigadrive on Dave's computer.
