SEGA Genesis (aka Megadrive) DGEN Emulator Ported to the BlackBerry PlayBook!

Super Hang On  Sega Megadrive/Genesis

Another day and now we have another emulator for the BlackBerry PlayBook. This new one is for the SEGA Genesis (aka Megadrive) and was done by developer Froggyface. Duke @OpensourceBB noticed the new project (GitHub) and the developer announcing the port on his blog. The emulator port is based on DGen SDL which is a popular opensource emulator for the Sega Genesis. Right now it has some limitations like ROM cycling and zipped ROM support but they are on Trevor Nunes to do list!

You can download and sideload the DGEN emulator for the PlayBook from MediaFire and find instructions on Trevor’s blog. Keep in mind you will have to “acquire” your own SEGA Genesis ROM files but a quick Google search should point you in the right direction.

Let us know if you get it working and kudos to Trevor!
