The result is that Genesis Plus GX provides very accurate emulation of supported systems and 100% compatibility with Genesis / Mega Drive, Sega/Mega CD, Master System, Game Gear & SG-1000 game libraries (including all unlicensed or pirate known dumps), also supporting backwards [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]compatibility [COLOR=blue !important]modes[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] when available.
Last but not least, it comes with plenty of exciting features and options that have nothing to envy to your most favorite PC emulators and makes this emulator the most faithful experience for any Sega 8/16-bit fans.
