The Fenrir is a new Optical Drive Emulator (ODE) for the Sega Saturn.

You can now replace the old CD-rom drive in your Sega Saturn with the Fenrir which, not only does it give you better loading times, but you can also store as many games as you want in the microSD.

It's very easy and quick to install by just removing the disc drive and replacing it with the Fenrir kit by plugging in 2 cables!

Features

  • DirectBoot! Fenrir is the only kit that can launch a game directly, without resetting the console or dropping back to the Bios!
  • Easily launch homebrew and games through a loader menu.
  • Plug and play installation with no soldering required.
  • Faster loading times as seek times are much faster on an SD card.
  • Supports all console regions (only for Model 1 (Oval Buttons) VA0, VA0.5 or VA1 consoles with a 20-pin drive).
  • Supports all microSD cards (and SD cards through an adapter) of any size.
  • Easy to add games to the card - just drag and drop your games to it!
  • ISO, CCD/IMG, CUE/ISO, CUE/BIN (single or multiple ISO or BIN files) supported.
  • Easy to update firmware - just put the firmware file in your card's root directory and you're done!
  • Compatible with Action Replay, Pseudo Kai, Save Carts and RAM Memory Expansion Cards.
  • Compatible with alternative power supplies (picoPSU, SaturnPSU)
  • Region free! Play games from any region with region auto-patching
  • Supports the Saturn MPEG Video card and works with games that require it or take advantage of it!

Current Known Limitations

There are some limitations with the current latest firmware that will be addressed in a future update, which will enable the WiFi module on the kit, and enable remote management and some extra features through a web interface. These are:

  • There is currently a hard limit of 300 games per card.
  • No ability to swap discs in game (for multi-disc games that require in-game swapping). Please check the compatibility list as the games that require this are just a handful. Support will arrive with a future update.
  • No support for deep tree folder structures in the memory card.

IMPORTANT NOTES ON MULTI-DISC GAMES:
Most multi-disc games in the Sega Saturn ask you to save your game before you continue your progress to the next disc. These games are FULLY PLAYABLE and such swapping is SUPPORTED by the Fenrir. You can boot back into Fenrir when you finish the first disc, load the second disc and continue your game.
Only a small fraction of games require in-game disc swapping. Fenrir does not have support for this functionality yet, but support will be added with a future firmware / loader update.
