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.

Well they both emulate the same games, since the Sega Mega Drive and Genesis are the same thing.
