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.

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

put all folders so ./genplus ./genplus/roms ./genplus/bios ./genplus/state ./genplus/sram on root of dev_usb000 so the first usb port on your right.

Is this still the case? Can I put these folders on the HDD?

I'm only asking cause I don't wanna use my USB stick everytime I want to use it.

It's not worth bothering with because of a terrible, terrible audio implementation. Really, it's been over months now and Mednafen PS3, coding-wise, is still pretty terrible.

One thing I must press with regards to the original author - release your source please, and set up a repo. There's no excuse not to have a source repo - Sony won't try to get you or sue you - we have three repos set up right now that all depend on the official SDK (VBA PS3, SNES9x PS3, FCEU PS3) and nothing ever happened to us.
