    Star Fox on the Sega Genesis?!

    • Teaser Paragraph:

    From the Blasphemy Department comes news that a savvy ROM hacker has managed to get Star Fox SNES somewhat running on the Sega Genesis (AKA Mega Drive).

    Surprisingly, without the Super FX, the machine can somewhat handle it. The proof of concept runs at a pretty lousy framerate, but I do not know if that is because of hardware limitations or that the code just isn't optimized for the system.

    I'm not versed enough in the tech behind the consoles, so I am not sure if this is actual Star Fox code running on the genesis or if it is something this guy made using ripped assets, as much of his thread focuses on that subject.

    If you want to take a shot at understanding it: http://www.romhacking.net/forum/index.php/topic,14298.0.html

    Too bad many of the links in that thread are broken. There sounds like there is some neat info these guys have dug up.

    This is really, really, cool. I used to be interested in romhacking and such, but I've lost all my knowledge on it. Still very interesting to read through, though.

    Looking at some of the other 3D flight games that came out on the Genesis/Megadrive, this is actually a real step-up.

    Well, from what I understand, its a custom made 3d engine that runs on the genesis, with models and animations from Starfox SNES.
