I've played a few min of Silpheed on emulators before.  It's an interesting game because you can tell it was Sega's middle finger at Nintendo for Star Fox, but once you get into the game, the models are so tiny on screen that it probably would have looked better and made more sense to make it a traditional 2d sprite game.  It's fun though.

There are a lot of "Genesis Does" stuff on Sega CD.  Oh, this game has 256 colors on screen at once.  This one has polygons.  This one has sprite scaling and rotation.

Not for nothing, but Silpheed came out in 1986. The Sega CD port replaced the "quasi 3rd person angled background" with pre-rendered video ala Starblade. But the PC-88 version and the SegaCD version both had polygons over top their respective backgrounds. Probably the best use of Full screen video ever, the SegaCD version looks pretty great and fakes having an extremely high poly count rather well.

Don't get me wrong, StarFox is a better game but its not a real apple to apple comparison. (3rd party port of a 7yr old game vs a 1st party title developed for the system)


I'm consistant!:
I'll give some Sega CD suggestions by category. Sega didnt lose me at the Sega CD, they lost me at the 32x but won me back over with the Saturn.

Just good games:
Snatcher - Probably the best Sega CD game ever.
Final Fight CD -hands down the best port of the game sans emulation
Road Avenger - Like Dragon's Lair without Daphne annoying you, and youre driving a car, and theres a gang.
Willy Beamish - my introduction to the point and click genre
Lunar (both) -fun RPGs with great music, voice acting, and cut scenes. Everything Working Designs touched turned to gold.
Silpheed was a fantastic on rails shooter that did a good job of "faking" better graphics by putting polys on FMV

Mortal Kombat II Unlimited runs fine on the Genesis Flashback, so at least some fun hacks behave on the native emulator.

I finally got around to ordering a $5 OTG cable and got PSX games running on the SNES. Tekken 3 is probably a bad example as it runs kinda slow and at times drop to single digit FPS.

So how do the external drives work with the gui?  Do they have their own version of the program or do they just show up like an external drive works on most operating systems or what?   I'm totally behind on the snes classic developments.

if you have the OTG cable in + USB , only the games on the USB show up on boot. Remove the USB and the games on the internal show up.

That runs great on both the genesis cores on the SNES mini, pretty awesome hack!

Cool.  Is it like the dual boot where a copy of the OS is on the usb or what?  I'm wondering if I can do a hmod to change the skin.... might put together a bunch of self contained game lists on various spare sd cards that are too small to be useful for anything else.  Like one with just tg-16 stuff on it, ect.

Mortal Kombat 2 Unlimited is great for making you feel like a lousy player once you turn on Combos and Run.  I'm not even sure how the hell they got combos working in MK2 but Sub-Zero has been raping everyone I've thrown at him.  I managed to take him out one round with Kitaro, but if you get stuck in the corner you're done for.

Malenko:  There may be a retroarch configuration you need to look at because outside of a couple of titles, frame rate is pretty near perfect. I'm pretty sure I've tried Tekken 3 and had no issues.  I'll double check this weekend.
