    Hi,

    I just found out about the "Genesis Plus GX" emulator which emulates Genesis / Mega Drive, Sega/Mega CD, Master System, Game Gear & SG-1000.

    I was wondering if someone might want to take a look into this and maybe port it for the Pandora.

    The "GX" part of the name mean gamecube and wii. it would be a huge pain to port as one would need to rebuilt the complete rendering pipeline and the UI. that's not even counting that this emulator have been tuned for gamecube...

    Alright then never mind. I just saw a video of it running on the gcw and thought I was an easy one to port.

    edit.: here is the video if anybody is interested: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ILIuAmgsCYY

    PicoDrive should emulate most of the systems anyways.

    This is also available as a core in some retroarch builds.

    That's right, I just thought that the gui on the website looked pretty cool.

    Sorry, I can't tell you that. I subscribed to the guy on youtube, that's how I found out about this. I don't own a gcw

    Looks as if sebt3 missed the end as it was initially ported for Wii / GameCube but is now cross platform friendly.

    I can't fault Picodrive at all though.

    See here for the source code. Feel free to port to the Pandora, let me know if you need any help, it only requires SDL1.2 so it should be quite easy to port to the pandora.
