Updated compatibility notes for Gens: Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, The Great Voyage of Hyoutanjima, Hardball 3, Hardball '95.

Using the results from 0-L (419 out of 427 games working, 28 with problems) this now gives Gens an overall compatibility rating of 98.1%. An awesome achievement I'm sure you'll agree.

Added the first dozen Mega-CD reviews: 3 Ninjas Kick Back, Afterburner III, Bari-Arm (Android Assault), Bill Walsh College Football, Black Hole Assault, Bouncers, Chuck Rock, Chuck Rock 2 - Son of Chuck, Double Switch, Dune, Dungeon Explorer, Dungeon Master 2 - Skull Keep.

Also added Sonic's Secrets for three of those: Afterburner III, Bari-Arm (Android Assault), Black Hole Assault.

Added CD/Case scans for: Afterburner III.

Stef has just released version 1.20 of Gens with improved Mega-CD emulation and support for .iso/.mp3 files, an updated version the official Gens Manual is also online ready for you to download. I got to play with a beta version during the week and can report that steady progress is being made on Sega-CD/Mega-CD emulation, several (European) games are already working and Stef has managed to make more improvements for this release so hopefully more games will now be showing signs of life (Stef reckons about 50% of games are now playable, if buggy).

I tidied up the S's and added the .Pat files which you can download as usual.

Added 7 missing reviews for: Crossfire, MegaGames 1 (Triple Score), PGA Tour Golf, Sagaia (replaces Darius 2), Shadow Blasters, Space Invaders '91 (replaces Space Invaders '90),Super Street Fighter 2 - The New Challengers.

Added 14 missing Game Genie codes for: Crossfire, MegaGames 1 (Triple Score), Might and Magic 2 - Gates to Another World, PGA Tour Golf, Sagaia, Shadow Blasters, Shining Force 2 - Return of the King, Shining in the Darkness, Space Invaders '91, Spiderman and the X-Men - Arcade's Revenge, Starflight, Super Street Fighter 2 - The New Challengers, Sword of Vermillion, Ys 3 - Wanderers from Ys.

To the best of my knowledge this now means that every known Game Genie code is online and available as a .PAT file, including several codes which do not seem to be available at any other site, with just one exception...

There are codes available for the BETA version of Super Street Fighter 2 - The New Challengers. However the BETA version of this game has never been dumped correctly, nor is it ever likely to be, so I have taken the decision not to include them here.

Fixed the compatibility report for X-Perts - I forgot to change Gens from a cross to a tick when it started working, D'oh!
