Genesis Plus GX PS3 v1.3 (FW 1.92+/FW 3.15/FW 3.41/CFW 3.55)

Build 1.3 (12-04-2011)

  • Custom Soundtrack support - select a song/album/playlist from the XMB
    Music category - music can be played both in-game and from within the menu.

  • Added USB/Bluetooth headset support - sound gets output through the headset.

  • Added 'Custom Scaling / Dual Shader' options from SNES9x PS3 - all the same features as SNES9x PS3 now - shader presets, custom scaling, dual shaders, triple buffering, etc, throttle mode.

  • Upgraded to Genesis Plus GX 1.5.0.

  • Added Genesis FM/PSG volume level settings.

  • Added Sega Master System mode - it's now possible to play Sega Master System games - this makes use of the Mega Drive add-on 'Power Base Converter', which was recently added to Genesis Plus GX.

  • Fix: Two-players should work now

  • Fix: Virtua Racing works now

  • Fix: Truxton works now

  • Fix: SRAM loading/saving should work properly now

  • Fix: some filebrowser fixes and some additions - press Start to return to the root of the filesystem

I can't seem to upload anything with the File Upload Manager - keeps reporting 'Invalid file' - so I'l just drop in the CHANGELOG here and wait for some mod to update it instead - this is really a major inconvenience that I 1) can't use the File Upload Manager like this, and 2) can't post external links. Hopefully one of the two gets sorted out.

I had hoped to get a releasable version out sooner, but looks like it will still take a while (perhaps before new year's eve) before I've updated Genesis Plus GX PS3 to the point where it has all the features that SNES9x PS3 now has in the latest trunk.

So for those who have no problems compiling for themselves, here is the current trunk on Github: github.com/squarepusher/genesis-plus-gx-ps3

BTW, Mr. Anonymous knows of our 'fork' (if you can call it that) and fully approves of it - for all intents and purposes this is a joint effort now.

I didn't know that, good to know. I don't like having to use my USB HDD either.

On a side note, I hope the author is just as busy working on PS3SX.

At least you can run the ROMs from your HDD0.

That is what I see in the latest ReadMe File, so it appears unchanged since the previous release.
