Use this thread to do any of the following:
Ask a question about Z26X
Report a bug about Z26X
Submit a feature request for Z26X
Do not use this thread to post about projects other than Z26X.
Do not post questions/bug reports/feature requests without first reading the FAQs for Z26X.
Do not ask where these projects can be downloaded.
Rule violators will get one warning. After that, you will be temporarily or permanently banned depending on the situation. I'm sorry if that sounds harsh, but it has taken me a cumulatively long time to write the FAQs for these projects. If you cannot do me the courtesy of taking the time to read them, then I do not want you posting here.
This thread will be pruned/cleaned periodically. If you had a question in this thread and it is now gone, then it was either in violation of the rules or your answer can now be found in the FAQs section.

7800 emulation does exists in MESS, although it may be too much of a "mess" to deal with. The 7800 is pretty much backward compatible to the 2600. Kinda like the PS2 to PS1. So I decided to mention this here.
No save states.
Doesn't properly set the A/B difficulty switches that you select in setup.
Record/playback does not seem to work properly (not that I use it much). The only game I tried it on was megamania.
No ability to access the black & white/color switch. I know this seems a moot point, but some games rely on it as controls (for example to bring up a star map).
I'm sure if I poked around a bit I could find a few more odds and ends, but these are the ones I've run across.

Anyways. Here is DC M.E.S.S. source that contains the 7800 code from M.E.S.S. coded for the dreamcast. It includes other projects the guy worked on as well. Why did I include this? Cause I was thinking maybe it'd make some of the hard parts easier, like sifting thru the M.E.S.S. code to begin with.
This emulator on the dreamcast, well runs like a dream and practically plays all the 7800 ROMS, minus a couple.
The link is Mess 072 -> Dreamcast
I also realized that I did not distinguish between what were requests and bug lists in my first post. My apologies. Anyways it should be pretty obvious which is which.

It has the only cooperative (2 players at same time) space invaders I could find on any console version.

The 7800 also has the only two player co-op/Vs version of centipede.

Has anyone here tried to play breakout? The left thumbstick moves the paddle back and forth so fast it's nearly impossible to play the game. It seems like the analog sensitivity settings in the control panel have no effect on it- I tried it from a setting of 2 up to a setting of 200 and there was no change in the motion.

If you've gotten it to work, any chance you can upload your .ini file here for the rest of us to ooh and aah over?

Regardless of my settings in z26x.ini, i can't seem to get the program to stop creating E:\SAVES\Z26X at run-time. can anyone help me with this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Also, I'm betting that with the 2600's 'blocky' look, some of those people that never saw the point in people 'whining' about the flicker filter would finally see a difference in the accurate "feel" of console games on normal 480i TVs with the flicker/smooth filters off :)
