Can we save in this game so I can stop and pick up where I left off later?

I wonder how the illegally uploaded copies were obtained.
I have no idea. I don't know how so many roms were collected before the Retrode, either. For all of those games to be uploaded, a lot of people must have known how to connect the game to a computer. Maybe some of those guys knew how to connect the system's hardware, too.

I know.

And the emulator requires BIOS files. At least to play anything other than an original Megadrive game.

So if you used the Retrode for a 32x game (Can it do that?) you'd need the bios. Which as far as I know there's no way to get...

I wonder how the illegally uploaded copies were obtained.

Oh. The retrode pulls the games out of the cartridges, but you still need an emulator to play them on pc. It doesn't connect to the system at all.

I heard about that, or something similar.

But that's the game cartridge.

The BIOS is in the console. So surely that device doesn't help with that?

I don't think you need BIOS to play Megadrive games, but you do for 32X and Mega-CD.

In theory you could copy it to your PC from your console, which is legal. But you need some weird cables to do that, and honestly I have no idea where you'd even plug them on a megadrive.
It's not theory anymore. Some guy in Germany has been making something called a Retrode. You plug your SNES or Genesis cartridges into the device and hook the cable to the USB port. It's most useful because you can archive your save files and change your game's battery, then reload the save to the cartridge.

Ohhh alright! Thanks everybody for the info! Guess I'll -attempt- to finish the game in one sitting. Or just have the game paused for a very long time >.<

Oh well.... thanks again!

He means emulating with something like "KEGA".

As far as I know it's perfectly legal so long as you own the game.

The technically illegal part is getting the BIOS for the emulator. In theory you could copy it to your PC from your console, which is legal. But you need some weird cables to do that, and honestly I have no idea where you'd even plug them on a megadrive.

He's referring to a way to play the game on the computer, but technically it's illegal because of copyright laws.

Crud. I'll never get through it then...

There are ways of "saving" the game, but I couldn't discuss them here. =x
We can't discuss them here? But there actually is a way to save though?
