More kudos to the devs.

The adaptive composite blending looks amazing in Sonic.

Is it just for Sonic, or does the code detect when the dithering technique is used and enable the blending?

it will work anywhere where transparency is alternating. For example it works well in Streets of Rage 2 on lights in bar (scene 1) or night forest in end of stage 3. But it won't work on dithering embedded into the tiles. It's like in Sonic 2 waterfalls when you see transparent water but it's absent on bricks in which Sonic walks.

The crispness of RGB + (some) of the blending of composite = as close to Mega Drive perfection as we've ever been :cheers:

This is tempting me to turn my model 1 MD into a pure shelf decoration piece. I'd put it in the closet but it still looks too cool to stash away.

Is it possible to put Menacer light gun maps in the Button Mapping descriptions (Similar to SNES Core)? Had to do trial and error earlier to figure out what buttons are what.

Does this only work with VGA output ?

Over HDMI, I'm seeing the same vertical banding with this set off vs partial ?

Hello all,
This is my first post and I couldn't find a doc on how to structure questions (create a new thread..etc?), so I'm posting it in this Genesis Core thread. Apologies in advance if this is the wrong place. First off, I am having a blast with my MiSTer and am grateful for all of the work the devs have done thru the years. I thought it would be fun to create a BIN/CUE of an audio disc and play it thru the MegaCD player. However upon launching the CUE, the SegaCD and Sega logos just go thru their extended animations and I can't seem to get the audio to play thru the player. Is there a trick to this? Is it even supported?

Kind regards,
Merl

Hi guys,
Could you please let me know the correct settings for the Lightgun? The wii mote seems to be working fine but I am struggling with the gun button?
So far I have got the following:

Mouse: none
Multitap: disabled
Swap Joystick: no

Gun: Joy1
Gun btn:Joy
Cross: Medium

Many thanks.

Does the game Pier Solar for Genesis work with the enhanced soundtrack CD on MISTer? I'm guessing not since Genesis and Sega CD are separate cores but thought I would ask.

Thank you,

I'm curious about this too. Does the Sega CD core support MD+? If it is supported, how should I organize the files? In its own directory I'm guessing? Thanks!

It is not currently supported, that I am aware of.

There was no Sega MD+. It's some post-mortem whistles and bells.
Play games as they are designed. Otherwise you have PC with Core i9 and modern 3D games.

Also Piers Solar as well, that if I remember right the PC version runs better anyway so yeah.

As for Pier Solar on Genesis, I agree that there should be a way to play the game with the audio from the CD, as the original Sega CD/Genesis systems allow that.

Pier Solar is the sole cartridge game supporting CD addon. Currently MegaCD doesn't support it.
May be in the future. Too much hassle just for a single game, which by the way can be played in Genesis core without CD just fine.
