Sorry for replying here and I dunno if its the right place but is FBA better in emulation specs from KEGA Fusion when running megadrive/genesis games?

Not quite, but its getting there.  Theres no megaCD(yet) or 32x, and a couple games flat out won't boot, but luckily we've fixed a lot of them.  For the games that work, theres no difference in emulation (that I can tell, at least).

iq_132, ha! yea, Jet Li rocks :)

So whats on my play agenda lately...
Contra Hard Corps - saw a little review of this game in the new issue of RetroGamer and that irk'd me to play it :)  Friggin' awesome game!
Hammer Away - had to test & perfect the emulation of this one in FBA & test something for _rm_
Blaze On - an atlus game with an _amazing_ soundtrack, and an awesome ship/mecha-takeover feature.  If you're going to play this one, watch the attract-mode to see what the takeover thing is all about before playing :)  Kinda reminds me of Paradroid for some reason.
Batsugun Special ver. pure toaplan quality.  with a side-order of special.

that's it for lately,
best regards,

Ok, these days I was playing some great games in FBA.
First of all, I would like to recommend one which is blow my mind. Called Battle Mania Daiginjou:
Sure a game that you need to have in your FBA collection. Here some picks:




Another one I will not put images, because the name is enought for itself: Truxton
It's really a classic to be played.

The last one it's one that I hope to see in the future in the FBA. Called Night Slasher:

dink like shooter games.... so my friend, here a game 4 you:
Musha Aleste.... in our great FBA MEGA DRIVE!


Hey guys.... I play many games in a few time. So, I have a lot of save games here, because I dont play for a long time.
I am stuck in Truxton... cant pass this boss! MY LORD, JUST CRAZY!!!


A curious thing happens these days! I played Castlevania Dracula X (SNES)... almost finish!


And then I tried a ps1 emulator and played this game: Castlevania - Symphony of the Night
The beggining of this game looks like a continuation of Dracula X


But then, the history completely changes and you are in a skin of a new character:


Both games are amazing...  JUST KICK ASS!

Thanks Freddy :)
I'm a big fan of the Aleste series, with our new GG/SMS driver, we have 4 completely different/new Aleste games to play :)

SMS: Aleste I & Power Strike (same game)
SMS: Power Strike II
GG: GG Aleste / Power Strike
GG: GG Aleste II / Power Strike II
Despite the name simularities, they are 4 completely different games.

BONUS:
We support the GG Aleste II SMS conversion, which runs the game at sms-fullscreen, instead of a small window.  Get the Aleste II / Power Strike II rom and apply this IPS to it, to get a working/fba-compatible SMS rom: http://www.smspower.org/Hacks/GGAlesteII-GG-GG2SMS?sid=0c5a874a1a7820e6705fb42a4d461da7
BONUS #2: in GG Aleste 1, go to the DIP's and change the overscan mode to on, and this will make the playscreen much longer.

Taking it ez and having a bit of fun lately...  Usually its 100% shooters for me, not this time!
Magical Taruruuto-Kun on Megadrive (oo, Quiigi!).  I like fun and easy platformers, this one reminds me of Giana Sisters on ye olde C64 for some reason. Tip: if you can't figure out where to go, hit the brick that looks different, and it'll make a step.
The New Zealand Story on SMS, its a bit easier and more playable than the arcade version which is insanely hard.
Quartet on SMS, how the hell do you get the key to the exit on level 2?
Black Belt on SMS \o/ (crick for animationoru tip2: say with Japanese accent)

Going seriously retro this time with the SG-1000 game Super Tank, a 1986-era game which is quite advanced for its time with regular shot, powerups and missiles, mid-bosses and secret areas.  It plays kinda similar to a regular shmup/shooter except you're a little tank on the ground.  Tips: take out the forts aka mid-bosses, which somewhat resemble alien satelite/spacestation-type things - sometimes theres a little icon in the middle of the blown-up debris. This takes you to an underground bunker/bonus stage where at the end you collect powerups to beef up your regular shot.  Fans of Knightmare/Three Dragon Story will have a familiar feeling with this one :)

Robocop Vs. Terminator (sms) - classic platform goodness, I had some fun with this one tonight :)
Playability-wise, its great.  Kind-of in the style of Altered Beast, but with ladders.
