SGCC is a C compilator package made by Paul Lee and designed for the MegaDrive.
I advice the noobs to use it because its very simple of use (Just extract it on the sources folder and click on "make.exe").
Unfortunately, it has some bugs and low optimisation level.
Download the Light Version (Used to compile all my SGCC demos)

Download the "sega.s" for SGCC (Rom header code)

XGCC (Gnu)
XGCC is a C compilator from the famous GCC.
It's the ultimate compilator, you can do all you want with it.
Top of that, it provide the optimisation-power of GCC. And there are NO bugs (if bug, it's surely your code, not gcc).
Only for *skilled* programmers (those who already made 2-3 demos with SGCC) because it's quite hard to set-up.

Made by the Agentur Simon studios, PEDIT allow you to select/rank the colors of a .bmp (pic) file.
You can save the color palette in the PaintShopPro or PhotoShop format.
Its very useful because it's REQUIRED to rank colors of a .bmp pic BEFORE going on BMP2TILE (to set the transparent color or shadow/highlight colors for exemple).

Paint Shop Pro is a not-free tool very cool to make your .bmp files and to load PEDIT palettes.
Beware: Only the release 6 is designed to work with 16 colors pics. Releases 7 - 8 - 9 are very hard to use.

Made by Tulio, MegaDrive Super Archiver is a tool to generate easy to use archives (using lzss compression or not).
I think all new games (especialy MegaCD games) should use this file system because it's fast and the compression is very strong (50% better than .zip).
The Sega MegaDrive code part is downloadable @ "works" part (see MDSA demo).
Download full package (Require VB6 runtimes)

Note Tab Light
Very nice tool because he keeps all advantages of NotePad and remove all disadvantages.
It allows to open several txt/asm/c files @ once, it count lines, etc etc... Must Have (BTW: you can also use DevCPP to edit C files).
