See above. With the most recent Windows 8.1 updates installed on a Surface Pro 2, this app when clean installed crashes whenever I attempt to run a ROM. This includes the built-in Fix-It Felix game.

Works great!

I've tried multiple roms and changed all of the available options, the sound quality on most games on this app an absolute waste of money.

I love it

Was a five star, but controls freeze up periodically.

So glad I found this. I bought it to support future development and to play all my favorite sonic games again on Surface. For the future, I think for the price it's not unreasonable to suggest that all the Sega emulators you develop to be bundled to one like Fusion is on desktop. You could do the same for your Nintendo emulators. Master system, genesis, game gear all on the same app. Anyway I hope this app continues development I'm really enjoying it and can't wait to test out Xbox controller support.

Emulator does well. I understand there might be bad sound coming from the emulator, but unfortunately having the sega genesis, it had bad sound as well as limited color palette. My gripe with the emulator is that customization is limited. You can't configure buttons on an xbox controller and can't adapt from a 3 button scheme to a 6 button scheme like genesis did when street fighter 2 and mortal kombat came out on to console. Overall great console but the options are lacking.
