DrSMS Update and New Beta released:
Reesy emailed me to update us on his progress:

"The Huffman compression routines are now completed. I now have to build some sort of SRAM managing system, which will allow you to add, update, delete compressed saves to SRAM. This is going to be a complicated beasty, so I spending a few weeks creating a design."

In the meantime, Reesy has given me the OK to release a new beta that he had sent to me a few days ago:

This release adds Gamma Control and saves should be working fine now too :)

Please leave feedback in this thread over at the Emuboards message board.

Site Update
I've updated the screenshots section, now you can see comparisons for the SMS screen unscaled/scaled and the GG mask off/on.

DrSMS Update
I've tested the new SAVE/LOAD routines on hardware and have had no problems, so it's all looking good.

Things to do before the next release are:
Gamma Control
More info on game selection screen so you can tell the difference between sms roms and gg roms.
A few fixes in the sms emulation.

That should be it. After the next release I'll be looking at increasing the amount of SRAM saves available.

Site Update
The DrSMS Version 3.00 Beta 3 Sega Master System Compatibility Chart is now online.

If you happen to find any errors in either of the compatibility lists, please email me here and let me know so I can fix them.

DrSMS Update
I've been testing the save functions in DrSMS for about an hour now. It all seems to be working fine now on hardware. I've got a few more things to tidy up first but I'll release another beta soon, so you all can double check the saving stuff.

New Beta released:
DrSMS Version 3.00 Beta 2
DrSMS PogoShell plugin Version 3.00 Beta 2

Please leave feedback in this thread over at the Emuboards message board.

I want to hear about any games that don't work. Please give me details, ie the exact rom name, what level you were on, if the GBA rebooted or just hung. If you were still able to use the DrSMS menu after the rom crashed.

Please note the GG support is very much WIP.
