On a personal note, thanks for the wait, everyone. 2022 was a bad year for me, from familial tragedies to uprooted living, it's been a hard time. I wanted to do more work on this project and fix some issues sooner with the curation, but it just wasn't in the cards. Things are a bit better now, and I decided to just sit down and crank through testing and fixing of some issues, like the truncating of game files caused by the Joliet filesystem. The Phantasy Star visual novels now work just fine, as well as TMNT Tournament Fighters.
I have discovered a number of problems with the Sonic romhacks launching that didn't seem to be an issue until now with 4.3, so a lot of those have been binned. I still want to explore the romhacks, but it's a challenge when newer romhacks are pushing the limits of this emulator.
In the meantime, I've tried to make up for that by adding in several new homebrew titles, from the 2010 reverse-engineered Super Mario Bros to the rad new BIO EVIL and Final Fight MD demos from Itch. The retail games now have Snow Bros. and the Darius Extra Version released with the first Genesis Mini. I was hoping the new games from the Mini 2 had been dumped, but it appears Sega has upped the ante on the security. Word also has it some of those games are using new emulator tricks that may not even work with Gens4all. I'd at least like to see Devi & Pii run on Dreamcast, but they aren't dumped yet, so we'll just have to keep waiting.
One other thing I wanted to add, but couldn't, was SD card support. megavolt83 did make a modified build of 4.3 with support for SD and HDD, but this subsequently broke gamelist support. Oh well, for the time being, this will do. Hope yall enjoy.
