GenaDrive is a Sega Mega Drive emulator for the Xbox (the source code allows Windows builds) by Dave, the author of Dega and many other emulators. Its base source code is the same of PicoDrive, though it uses A68K as 68000 emulation core rather than Cyclone. There are a few things missing, but a good bunch of games are playable.
Sound is (kind of) supported, but there's no PSG or DAC and all FM music produced by the YM2612 is replaced by square waves.
This emulator requires a directory called "roms" in the GenaDrive folder. This can contain any Sega Mega Drive ROM, but it must be in a raw dump form (files with a "bin", "gen", or "md" extension will work; files with a "smd" extension need to be deinterleaved). However, games or certain game features relying on the Z80 will not work because said processor is not emulated yet.
