SubjectWhat is distinct about Genesis Emulation? Reply to this message
Posted byPlethora23
Posted on02/09/06 04:30 PM



So I have a problem with Genesis emulators... all of them. Whenever I start one up I get a blue screen with a message along the lines of a faulty driver on the kernal stack. This happens only with Genesis emulation, but it also happens regardless of which emulator I use (I have tried Kega, Gens, Ages, and a few others that I can't remember off the top of my head).

So in an attempt to isolate and solve the problem I've been trying to figure out what occurs behind the scenes in Gensis Emulation that other emulation doesn't do. I can to Snes, Psx, nes, and other types of emulation without a problem.

Any suggestions would help.

He's right. All these Genesis emulators have CD support and all of them use the ASP interface to read the CDs. When the emu tries to start up, it tries to initialize the ASPI and something is wrong with it or it is missing on your machine, you get a warning. Why the emulators do not simply disable CD support and run without it, so you could at least run ROMs is above me.
I guess it's just quick and dirty programming,
If you don't have ASPI drivers get info and the drivers here (link courtesy of the ASPI wiki page):

Good luck with your emulation efforts.
