Thanks for your info, i got a new strange problem: the buttons work, but they are also still mapped to their phone functions. i.e. if i press the phone contacts button (mapped to "b" button) the action mapped to b happens in the game, but also my phone contacts are opened. Z80: maybe you want to look @ picodrive n for uiq where z80 is emulated ?

Do you mean the function key still activate the assciated program on a Pocket PC? Actually I have not test it yet. I will check it out later.

Yeah, the source code of picodrive for symbian or uiq will be of help with improving sound compatibility. But I can't find any.

The Symbian Uiq Version with Z80 Support can be found here:http://my-symbian.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=24550 (you have to register first to acess the forum). Maybe the author will give you the source.

About my problem: I have five buttons (Phone green, Phone red, Calender, Contacts and one center button). When I press "Calender" i.e. the action mapped to this button happens in the emu, but also my calender got opened. This wont happen with the original Picodrive which supports no sound. The second strange thing, when pressing a direction button, it´s like i´m pressing it a few times at once (i.e. not one time up but the character jumps 5 times like i pressed the button 5 times very quick).

Version 0.043

It seems this version (560.640) is newer as the version 0.0.43 (551.424*) from chinese board.

Some games like Sonic 1 doesn´t work with new version. With older version*

it works.

Really! Well, it has some small fix such as the battery-baced ram reading fix and add support for gzip format rom. What you exact mean for doesn't work? Is black screen appeared when loading the rom?

When you get problem with keys try to use 3-button instead of 6-button. The 6-button compatibility is not very good yet.

Version 0.43 doesn't work for me at all. PicoDrive just freezes after any rom is opened on my C500. Previous version opens all of them without any problem.

Try to zip the rom and load again.

Thanks. This helped ;)

I found another problem. I'm playing Flashback and load/save state works quite strange in this game. Saved state somehow always remembers my last movement till the position I died (but the state was saved before) and replays it after load without possibility to do anything. If open the game in older PicoDrive, load this state, save it again and then open it again in masterall version, state is loaded without "replay".

when will other games have sound(z80) ? , i think it should be possible for a lot of megadrive games to have sound and music and still run at a decent speed !

Absolutely flawless on my X50v! Awesome job! ;)

Could you consider supporting VGA screens, though? Like the other emulators I'm testing here, it runs in a tiny window in the top-left of my screen.

Thanks a lot, keep up the great work! ;)

Smartastic:

Yeah, I hope to add sound for most games and without appraent speed decrease.

d0pefish:

I will add VGA support definitly, and with some other smooth stretch algorithm.

After first using the emu there were already all buttons configured. is there a way to set to three button mode (i.e. deleting a config file) ?
