• Save and load save ram and save states
• File browser, place your games on a USB drive, or FTP them to the internal drive
• Fast forward

The first time you load a game for a system, you will be asked to configure the controls, you can reconfigure them later by pressing L3 + R3.








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

Use:
• File Menu
• Up and Down to Scroll the list by 1
• Left and Right to scroll the list by a page
• Cross: Select File or directory
• Circle: Go to previous directory

In Game:
• Tilt the right stick to the right for fast forward
• R3 to open settings menu
• Hold L3 + L2 to save state
• Hold L3 + R2 to load state
• Hold L3 + R3 to redefine controls

Settings Menu:
• Up and down to choose setting

Another brief update and changelog:
r60 Update readme concerning available features (IPS patch, more PCE CD format info)

Hopefully fix remaining endian issues in Megadrive (status windows in various
games being garbled)

Add option to store save games and states in same directory as game file, and to disable compression for sharing saves with other emulators (press r3 in file browser)

Here is the latest Mednafen revision 59 and recent changelogs:
r59 Get Megadrive working after some endian fixes (note: please 'make clean' any existing build trees to apply pre-processor change)
r58 Start local two-player support for consoles (SMS, NES, PCE). Currently all players share the same button map as player 1.
r57 Whoops, broke game loading in last commit
r56 Fixed hang when opening emulator select menu
r55 Copy libz.a to mednafen-wip directory.
r54 Update documents
r53 Re-enable PCE CD support Compile built-in PCE Fast module, but disable access due to bugs. (All bg tiles are inverted, I don't think the new mednafen drivers support Big-endian yet)
r52 mednafen-wip: Support save states in nestopia
r51 Save and load battery in vba-m Load files unpacked by mednafen's core in nestopia gambatte and vba-m
r50 Fix vba-m sample rate Add emulator selector, press R3 during file select
r49 mednafen-wip: Merge in VBA-M
r48 mednafen-wip update (fix pce image size, save load and reset in gambatte and nestopia)
r47 Begin integrating gambatte into mednafen-wip (still not useful)
r46 Nestopia merged into mednafen-wip (mednafen-wip still isn't useful)
r45 Mednafen-wip test - not worth using right now, just here for clean copies
r44 Edited wiki page Bugs through web user interface.
r43 Add simple sdl version of system code, for better testing
r42 More maintenance

Wow, revision 23 already? I just tried rev7 so we have GBA and PCE support already? That's great.

This is turning into a real nice multi-emulator. I wonder if there is pre 3.41 support. I've been running into problems getting stuff to work right on a PS3 with FW 3.15.. quite a few things have asked me to update to 3.41.

Anyways, great work on this emulator.
