Genesis Plus GX is an open-source Genesis, Master System, Game Gear, SG-1000 and Sega CD/Mega CD emulator by eke-eke. It's developed for the GameCube and Wii (as homebrew) and is only available on other platforms using the libretro core. However, there exists an unofficial Windows SDL (32-bit) port of the emulator that can be downloaded from here, but there are some differences though:

  • The UI is basically based on the original Genesis Plus, but it contains some backported additions and features based on v1.6.0 of Genesis Plus GX.
  • It seems that it hasn't been tested before, that's why you will notice some bug-ridden events (like the emulator breaking when closing it, emulation inaccuracies with the Sega SG-1000 and Sega Master System, etc.).
  • It is quite unknown who actually made this port.



It is claimed that Genesis Plus GX achieves 100% compatibility with all commercial games released on platforms it supports, all while being made primarily to run on Wii/Gamecube. It is recommended to use this version instead of the original Genesis Plus where possible.

Additional details on compatibility are here.
