This is the first official public release of Exodus. Note that the Visual C++ 2005 x64 runtimes need to be installed in order to run Exodus. The system is pre-configured to load a Mega Drive system on startup, without a TMSS system bios loaded. It is recommended to specify a system bios file to use, and enabling TMSS bios support, for the best possible ROM compatibility. Although a system BIOS is not strictly required in order to run Mega Drive games, some homebrew roms rely on default initialization performed by the system bios in order to function correctly.
