Supermodel - Sega Model 3 Arcade Emulator Released

Supermodel-Sega-Model-3-Arcade-Emulator-ReleasedSega's arcade board capable of powering the likes of Daytona USA 2, Virtua Fighter 3 and Scud Race has been gifted a brand new emulator. Dubbed Supermodel, this work in progress emulator is already proving it's worth with some impressive results. Gentlemen, start your engines!

The Supermodel emulator was released last Friday, however given the date released we were a little sceptical to make note of the news for fear of falling into yet another April Fools trap. Needless to say, the emulator was far from a joke as it's more than capable of running a range of Sega Model 3 arcade ROMs already.

The emulator is currently in the early stages at version 0.1a, yet it offers impressive emulation of Daytona USA 2 with next to no setup required. Although the emulation currently doesn't support sound, the gameplay and graphics remains intact (as long as your computer is powerful enough). It should be noted though that a few games may require tweaks, which are well documented on the Supermodel website.

As of speaking 12 games from the system have been confirmed as working, including Star Wars Trilogy and Sega Rally 2, with a few others yet to be made compatible. Our only hope is that Sega's elusive Magical Truck Adventure is preserved shortly and prepared for emulation.

This is fantastic news. I thought the SuperModel emulator had long been abandoned.
