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

Use:
• File Menu

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.

Is it possible to tell the author to include an option to read from the SD Card slots for us 60/80gb owners?

I got most of my roms on my psp memory stick and I don't want to re-transfer everything. For now I've been running it from a Hub, but it would be more efficient if the card readers can just pick it up.

This is made with PSL1GHT? if so will it run on a non JB console? or does it need to be jailbroken before hand?
