• PCE and PCE CD support
• Neo-Geo pocket, Atari Lynx and Wonder Swan support
• Better user interface
• Other features

To quote: When you first boot mednafen, press R3 to open the settings menu. Go down and select "Sega Saturn (Yabause)" with X. Make sure that "yabause.enable" is set to "ON" Select "yabause.bios" with Square and browse to your Saturn Bios and select it with X. (Google will help here ) Then press circle twice to return to the file browser.
