    Sega Emulation


    Well I installed "dgen" and it works like crap, so I downloaded GensForLinux and that isn't working either. Anyone else know a good one I can use? Also, my problem with Gens is that it won't install, I run ./configure and it gives me this error "bash: ./configure: /bin/sh^M: bad interpreter: No such file or director". Any help greatly appreciated.

    TRy editing the configure file and changing /bin/sh^M to /bin/bash or /bin/sh

    When I search for /bin/sh^M in the file it comes up with nothing. The file is pretty huge too. Is there anything else I can try?

    I used to run gens undeer Windows but I haven't had any luck getting a Sega Emulator to run. There are even one or two in Guru's SUSE repos but noe have ever worked for me. Snes on the other hand is all gravy...Zsnes works great on any platform. Make sure and post back if you find a good SEGA one, I'd definitely be interested.

    Will do, I have Zsnes working already, but I'm tired of playing Mario all the time, and I've never been a big nintendo fan personally.

    Hi mates,
    I also think Gens and other for Linux are pure ****... but there is a nice emulator called Generator (for Linux I mean, of course).
    It doesn't need "./configure" or "make", only double clicking the executable.
    However the game compatibility, although quite good, is not as good as Fusion for the horrible Windows . Also don't forget it is a good idea to pause emulation when you want to load another game, since if a game is already running, it might crash, and you will have to restart it.

    Good luck, man.
