This is the SEGA Developer Technical Support CD from June of 1996, this disc was used for the development of Sega Saturn games. Many Saturn tools, documentation, and files are included for a wide range of things such as programming, graphics, and sound.




What's NEW:

SGL 2.1
Updated SGL version 2.1 (includes PRELIMINARY versions of
explanatory readme files).  The previous version of SGL 2.0A
is still included with FINAL versions of translated readme files.

The SoundSimulator 3.00E folder contains the latest SoundSimulator
release.  The NEW_INFO file explains the recommended combination
of sound tools that provides the most stable setup and produces
consistent results.  Additionally, all available Japanese release
notes for the tools have been translated into English for your
reference purposes.  Look for the release notes inside each tool's folder.
