Great program. I can see how this would be fun even if you aren't looking at betas. One question though, is it possible to pause one screen and play the other?.. for like when one of my Sonics die and the other doesn't -_-

I guess you'd have to click on the "dead" gens and press esc to freeze it.

Though I think there's a hard pause menu item as well if that doesn't work out.

Oh and the Esc thing works well too, thanks. I just had one Sonic get a time over but the other was fine...

I have no idea how that happened.

And you extracted dual.exe and gens.exe to the same folder? dual.exe runs gens and waits for it to load, which might cause an inf loop on Win9x systems I guess...

Oh and make sure your computer is set to 16bit color. I noticed it takes like twice as long if it's on 32 bit because gens automatically tries to fix it.

Why isn't the "Take Screenshot" button disabled? Not implemented yet?

EDIT: What the? Your proto utility seems to be messing up Gens! I select Option in Knux Chaotix, and it goes to Training! What the hell's going on here?

Yeah, I couldn't get sending shift+backspace to both windows working oddly.

Hmm, don't know why it'd be doing that. Sure it's just not bad emulation? KEGA is supposed to be better for 32x stuff.

And that's the reason I stopped using Gens. Why is it so hard for it to run at the same colour depth you're running at (or better yet, just 32bit, which 99% of people use?)

Eck, Gens. I'll wait for the KEGA one, myself. Though not to disparage the good programming work on the tool itself—just that I don't want to set my display to 16bit and make my monitor angry at me.
