Libretro wrapper for Genesis Plus GX
This wrapper makes Genesis Plus GX API compatible with libretro, thus allowing its use with libretro frontends, such as RetroArch.
Genesis Plus GX is a Sega 8/16 bit emulator focused on accuracy and portability. Initially ported and developed on Gamecube / Wii consoles only through libogc / devkitPPC, it is now available on many other platforms through various frontends.
The source code, originally based on Genesis Plus 1.3 by Charles MacDonald, has been heavily modified & enhanced, with respect to initial goals and design, in order to improve the accuracy of emulation, implementing new features and adding support for extra peripherals, cartridge & systems hardware.
The result is that Genesis Plus GX is now more a continuation of the original project than a simple port, providing very accurate emulation and 100% compatibility with Genesis / Mega Drive, Sega/Mega CD, Master System, Game Gear & SG-1000 released software (including all unlicensed or pirate known dumps), also emulating backwards compatibility modes when available.
