    I'll probably call the tarball 2.13alpha and hopefully get some feedback on how it's working, then release a Linux 2.13.
    Can you please apply the patch described here.

    Currently it seems that command line options are not processed so Gens cannot be associated with any file type.

    Yeah, it works fine for me also. Brings back memories of playing NHLPA 93 non stop ....

    Re: Gens for Linux ubuntu package

    its really great that its being maintained in a somewhat orderly fashion by wyrun.

    thanks all.

    p.s. i don't know how many of you are familiar with gens32 (on windows) but it'd be great to get some of the options gens32 has in gens (for linux). in particular the sound options, rom explorer (for archived/compressed files), & the improved game genie ui...

    You shouldn't see anything much happen after that. You need the next line then (look at the directions on the sf project site):

    cvs -z3 -dserver:anonymous@gens.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/gens co Gens-MultiPlatform/linux

    To the person who mentioned command line arguments: are you using the CVS version? If you are, it should work (although in a slightly different fashion to that described by the patch). See --help.

I'd love to play some old Megadrive faves in Linux.
    Hard to say. The joystick code's a bit of a mess; it's probably a simple fix, but without knowing what numbers your joystick is generating I wouldn't know what to change. Does it work ok in other apps?

    Re: Gens for Linux ubuntu package

    Pretty much. I'm also using ZSNES 1.51 with no pad or control problems, and also Mupen64 works great with my joypad. I managed to configure Secret Maryo Chronicles to work with it as well, and FakeNES works as it should also. There's only GridWars I can't get to work at all, and this version of Gens with broken controls, which is a real bummer! It's a great emulator, though, and I'd love to see further updates to it.

    Thanks for your replies.

    Hey, just want to say thanks for the package, it's running really well on my gibbon install.

    One problem I'm having though, is save states won't load.

    There's an issue with save states in the non-CVS version. It should work if you use the 'preset' quicksaves in the menu.

    Thanks for that. I will play around with it when I get home and build a pre-alpha package - unless your tarball is almost done

    Hey, is anyone else having a speed issue? The games are running unplayable fast for me even though I have Perfect Syncro checked and Frameskip set to auto.
