It was never released and from all the info I've seen it looks like it was probably in the alpha/beta stages. I remember seeing on some site that supposedly one of the reasons that the port was canned was because some lead programmer cracked under the pressure and killed himself. Which sounds like bullshit pretty much, but I'm not surprised that it got canned in general as the supergrafx was a pretty useless addon in the long run and didn't really add much to the vanilla and CD PCE hardware itself.

I should really start getting back in the MAME loop again and try Osman, it sucks that I started to lose track of MAME right when progress on some the best and seemingly impossible to emulate classics (sega x/y board and weird data east hardware stuff i'm looking at you) started to really take off..
