release: SNES emulator for SEGA Saturn

This Super Nintendo emulator is a SEGA Saturn port of snes9x. The fast assembler cpu core of DreamSNES for Dreamcast has been ported from SH4 to SH2, too, and it is the first released app to use the SGL replacement library. These two things are the reason that, though snes9x pushes the SEGA Saturn to it's limits, the emu runs faster than any of my previous released Emulators.

The emu comes in two versions: a fast but less compatible one using ASM cpu core (recommended) and a slow but compatible one using C cpu core.

Download from the snes9x for SEGA Saturn website and have a look at the screenshots.

The download archive (extract with WinRAR or contains a couple of homebrew SNES ROMs and everything needed to build custom CD images with your own ROMs on Windows. Just click on MakeFast.bat or MakeSlow.bat. To have a quick start, the ready-to-burn CD images snes9x_fast.iso and snes9x_slow.iso are included, too.

Almost forgot to say that the emu is still slow (although I could apply massive speedups), some demos run quite fast. By using the slave cpu and hardware rendering (like in VBT's SMS Plus port), I expect it could reach playable speeds for some games.
