    -----

    Features:

    - SMSPlus 1.2 core used

    - Zooming of SMS & GG to fullscreen on the PSP

    Enduro Racer and Impossible Mission work great on this emulator. Just to hear , "Another visitor, stay a while, stay forever!" , brought the biggest smile on my face. The master system version isn't as good as the C64, but its still very playable.

    Game Gear works great Sound is off but if you turn it down low it's ok.
    Plays full speed and saves too.
    Great first release better than the other one floating around that just got sunk

    Any other option other than going back to the ROM menu?
    I couldn't find one. So how the hell do you load and save gamestates? Or does he just mean that you can now power-down the PSP with the emulator running and it will pick up right where it left off without crashing? Well, it supports restoring after a power-down, so I guess that's what he means.

    Default me thinks

    I think it uses the save type some game gears use (auto) If you reset the game it auto saves it.

    To make sure I used the ingame save and that works.
    When i reseted it still picked up on continue.
    The sound is strange it breaks up bad when its loud or normal but turn it down to low and it's ok.
    It still very much plaable.
    Shining Force final confilct (trans) works great

    While hardly the best emulator on the PSP, this is infintely better than the SMS 0.5 SMS/GG emulator. Zip support and full speed are welcome additions. I think the sound is pretty true to the original systems (having had both, I know they were weak), though I am sure it could use a little tweaking.

    Wish list:
    save states
    alternate screen formats (not just full/stretch)
    return to game after entering the rom/options menu
    hmm, how about some options to adjust

    Nice work however, a welcomed addition.

    Great Stuff!
    Might be worth putting a good icon in
    OMFG it has ANALOG SUPPORT you are THE BEST!!!
    Yoshihiro couldnt even put that in.

    Yoshi incase you are reading this. i want to point a few things out.
    1. Your emu is good yes but you wont read your forums and give users information they need.
    2. Netherless the background is good
    3. Dont go flouting at other websites in your programs. People prolly visit them more often now . You actually advertised their site in your program! Wow do that for me!\
    4. Really analog support could have been done from the start.

    Doesnt everyone see? Good things take good time! (SmsPlus)

    p.s Yoshi, dont go making accusations that Mr Swindle stole your source. I know he would have written stuff from scratch. you prolly used his source and never credited him for it.

    Actually, you'll note that Mr. Swindle does a hell of a job posting in his READMEs EXACTLY where this came from, and notes everything else he's used and who has helped him out.
    Yoshi just steals code and releases it as his own work.

    iBall good description

    Just thought I would reply to a few of the comments

    iball - Load and saving game states is not supported in this version, this is just the initial release with the base emulator and a quick file selector that I put together

    ataribob - Yeah, the sound playing up when you turn it up is due to me multiplying the sound as it was really quiet, need some fine tuning on that, I think that most games that I tried seem ok on a quiet setting. I should have tested on a higher volume.

    raiser72 - I have a gamegear (which I still use) which I will be using to try and compare the sound at some point and try and improve it, the items on your wish list are fairly much all on my list of things that I want to get done, plus auto save on power loss is on there as well and 2.0 support.

    Wally - For icons, eventually I will have one sorted in time, but sorting code out first is my main priority.
