    News Area . .
    08/31/99 Hello, my name is Kamaya and I will be taking over from Veralden as the section maintainer. For the time being the site will remain the same but when I have some more time, I will completely update the whole section. If you have any comments, requests or suggestions do not hesitate to contact me here.

    04/09/99 Sorry, I am busy. But there is a new BrSMS 1.19 out, I edited the emulator page, and the P.A.R.chive has a new color scheme.

    04/05/99 Added MEKA, a faboo new SMS/GG emulator. I will post a review probably on Thursday. I will start doing in depth reviews, starting with MEKA and then going on to the others.

    03/30/99 Added two more .MSD Save States-Golden Axe Warrior and Prince of Persia. And always, if you have any, just send them to me.

    The Master System

    Quick Specs List for Master System:
  • Released: 19??
  • Main Processor: Z80
  • Co-processor: none
  • Data-path width: 8-bit
  • Color Palette: 256
  • On screen: 16
  • Sound: FM
  • Ram: 64k

  • Cart Size: 1-4Mbit
  • Info: Though similar to the NES, this unit has a more realistic color pallete and, overall, just better graphics quality then the NES. Even though superior to the NES, this system was never really able to top the NES's popularity. This created a rivalry between Sega and Nintendo that still exists today. Sega later released the Genesis system, which became their flagship game system, ending the SMS time period.
