Hi, you're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to set up and use a Sega Genesis emulator on a Windows 7 computer. Make sure that you have Sega Genesis game ROMs on your computer, then download the emulator. One of the best emulators is Gens, which can be downloaded here: http://www.gens.me/downloads.shtml. The current version is 2.14.
Your screen might flicker for a few seconds if you are using a special theme. The computer will change back to the basic colors, but when you turn the emulator off, it will go back to the theme that was set.
Press a button in the window, then press a key on the keyboard to set that key
For example, if you click the "You" in the window, a question mark will show up. This means that it is listening for your input. Press any key on the keyboard to set that key. I'm going to press the UP arrow on my keyboard.
Your download location may be different than mine. In this case, it is on the desktop. The most common extension for the SEGA Genesis games is .bin. "Sonic the Hedgehog.bin" in the file I need. Press it once, then click OK.
