    Opa-Opa Would it be possible to hack Pico ROMs to run Sega Genesis?

    Besides the controller and sound workarounds (impossibilities), the hardware looks similar on paper.

    Is this something feasible?

    You would have to do quite a bit of patching because the hardware is not that similar other than sharing the same CPU and VDP.

    Thanks. I was hoping there was already some work done on this that I couldn't find in a search. It's very difficult for google to separate hacks, emulation, and two different Sega systems.

    I think I have found some pico rom adaptation attempts in the NonGoodGen romset.
    From what little I can remember, they weren't very worth looking at and, even if they worked, you really want the hardware to enjoy Pico games...

    cheers
