The Sega Genesis (known as Mega Drive outside the USA) is a 4th generation console created by Sega. It was a direct rival to the SNES. It later received two peripherals in the form of the 32X and Sega CD/Mega CD.
Gens Kmod is a modification of the Gens emulator, which adds various debug functions. You can download it Here.
In order to rip sprites, boot up your game and play it to the point where the sprites you want are. Pause the game (depending on the game, you may need to pause the emulator itself, for that just press "Esc"), then choose the menu "CPU -> Debug":
From here, there are two methods for ripping the sprites:
- In the first method, choose the menu "CPU -> Debug -> Layers". This will bring a pop-up window with various checked boxes, which allow you to disable the background layers or the sprites themselves (useful if you want to rip the backgrounds):
- For the second method, choose the menu "CPU -> Debug -> Genesis -> VDP" (not VDP - Sprites, that's for another thing). This will bring a pop-up window showing five palettes and the tiles. By clicking one palette, you change the palette on the tiles. There are four palettes, plus a fifth, "smart" palette, which is useful for ripping sprites with black pixels which blend with the background:
Now you have two options: you can either save the tiles to a bmp file, by using the "Tiles to Bitmap" button, or you can Print Screen and paste on Paint or another image editing program to edit.
Much like Kmod, DebuGens is also a hack of Gens to add debug functions. You can download it Here.
DebuGens includes the same options as Kmod, as such the methods for ripping are the same.
The best Mega Drive emulator, it emulates 32X and Sega CD, as well as Master System and Game Gear.
