I wish i could help somehow, since i would love if could get this to work. Is there anything i can do to help? maybe do some testing with that test rom?

It should be working in the next release, with the "IM 0 acts like IM 1" behavior. MAME appears to be the outlier here in not resetting IM; everything else I can find suggests that IM is reset and that the Z80 data bus would be pulled to FF during an interrupt cycle on an original console.

The game require full SEGA Mapper support to work.
Error $40 - "Mapeador não inicializado" - Means SEGA Mapper not supported by device.
Error $41 - "SRAM não inicializado" - Means SEGA Mapper is supported, but without SRAM Support.

I guess I wasn't especially clear, but when I said "next release", I meant the next release of Genesis_MiSTer, which hasn't happened yet. Here's a .rbf for those who don't want to wait.

The latest version of the Mega Drive (Genesis) core in MiSTer as of today is Genesis_20200701, which means it is from July 1, before ExCyber posted his custom RBF build. So, get the RBF above if you can’t wait — if not, it’ll probably be part of the main distribution eventually.

Hi, I know that sounds a bit lame but... Has anyone a code for unlimited continues/lives?

When you lost all lives and continues. You can load the last played level with 3 lives from Save Select Menu. And you can get extra lives entering on bonus stages through lamppost. Hitting a lamppost with 20 or more rings allow you to play a bonus stage where you can get extra lives.

I can't provide a "Game Genie" code, because the game is current in development. And the code will be invalid due to data shifting after a new build is released.

CountBloodHelio wrote: Tue Sep 15, 2020 4:05 am A few bugs I've encountered while playing the game:
1. Hyper dashing as Hyper Sonic in Sand Shower Zone near badniks or monitors crashes the game.
2. Entering and exiting debug mode as Miles in Sonic 1's special stage crashes the game.
3. When the Sonic 1's special stage is enter from the level select, exiting the special stage by either start+a, touching a goal block, or touching a life icon sends the player to Hidden Palace Zone instead of the title screen.
4. In Labyrinth Zone act 3, I entered a bonus stage on the last checkpoint and reentered the stage which temporally filled the screen with water, which caused me to lose my flame shield. Don't know if this happens in any other zones though.
5. There is also an area in Metropolis Zone act 1 right after the bottomless pit section that Knuckles can't do because the blocks are too high. There might also be other areas that Knuckles can't do because of his lower jump height, but I did not check.
6. Tails can carry Knuckles into Sonic's areas in Sonic 3 & Knuckles, which can cause problems.

Also, just a suggestion, but can you add some rings to Sonic's final boss fight in Sonic and Knuckles. It sucks having to fight the boss with no rings after dying. Knuckles already has rings for his final boss and you've added rings to the Sonic 1 and Sonic 2 final bosses.
And also, can you make it so the timer stops after beating a boss like in Sonic 3 & Knuckles instead of having the timer stop after opening the animal capsule like in Sonic 1 and Sonic 2.
Thanks, for playing and reporting issues, but I think this is not an appropriate place to do, because this forum is specific for reporting MiSTer issues.

The better place is https://forums.sonicretro.org/index.php ... 0mb.39203/ or you can contact me through email.

Best regards:

It has been merged, just not a new release built.

Perhaps I used the wrong term but the point is this needs to be made available to users officially.

Is there a reason this hasn't made it into main? Is this something where Sorg hasn't seen it and needs a nudge?

At this point I think it's safe to say Sorg doesn't want this code in Main. There's no other explanation.

He could have just missed it, the posts about the broken MS FM sound option sat broken for months until it was pointed out to him.

This went into the repository; it's just that a new release wasn't made yet.
Sometimes full releases aren't made just for a small change - either waiting for more updates in order to bundle them up, or a sys change is coming but hasn't made it to this core yet.
