There are Nintendo NES and Nintendo SNES - but with Sega - there is only one sega, and no 8bit sega at all. Big ouch for all sega funs... :) Should split into Master System and MegaDrive/Genesis... possibly add Sega CD as well. :)

You're absolutely right! It's one of the consequences of a website growing over time. Yes, Nintendo NES and SNES should be under just "Nintendo" and not have separate menu entries. Same with Atari (as I'm planning to cover 5200/7800). The menu is based on chosen emulators though. NES and SNES have different emulators, while the SEGA (KEGA Fusion) emulator does many SEGA consoles, including Master System and SEGA CD. Guess I'll run into trouble when covering the Saturn or Dreamcast...

Fusion is great emu, but not sure why, I like more to run FreezeSMS and Meka for SMS. (I like option to download game cover in FreezeSMS - gives you back some memories from that time :)) I still own Genesis and probably about 100 games and GameGear (witch site is missing as well - but that was almost like portable SMS :)) I strongly suggest doing those separatly. Otherwise you will place Vic-20 under Commodore-64 as the same emulator emulates both. :) Great work any way... :)

I'm not familiar with Meka and FreezeSMS, will try those soon! And I will consider re-structuring the menu and information on this site for sure. The site itself needs an upgrade too... But you know how it goes; time is limited and there are always other things to do!
