    * added support for Master System compatibility mode (Z80 ports access mode), incl. Mode 5 rendering.
    * added Mode 4 rendering for both Genesis & Master System modes.

    * improved input controller detection on menu exit.

    Interesting:

    * added Master System compatibility mode emulation (automatically enabled when loading ROM file with .sms extension).

    Hmm...So Gen Plus GX now supports the Master System?!?!? Nice. I'll have to test today. It looks like eke-eke is trying to take this the way of Kega Fusion. Now if he adds .GG support SMSPlus will be useless.
