Genesis/Mega Drive Rom issues

Postby GameFox » July 31st, 2016, 1:55 pm

So i where downloading a few rom hacks of Sonic games and put them onto my SD card but they won't show up on the list of games? and when i tryed to play them as an ips file they would just start with a Black or a Red screen and then frezes there.

So is there something in the format of the roms the Retro Frak can't read or something? and yes they do work on regular emulators.

Megadrive / Genesis games need the .bin extension and not the more common .smd extension.
